'''Pikala''' (Japanese: '''ピカーラ''' ''Pikala'') is a recurring character who first appeared in ''[[File:Pikarla.pngSM091|thumb|250px|PikrlaA Plethora of Pikachu!]]''. She is a [[Pokémon Trainer]] who lives in [[Pikachu Valley]] with all of her {{p|Pikachu}}.
'''Pikala''' (Japanese: '''ピカーラ''' ''Pikarla'') is a [[character of the day]] who appeared in ''[[SM091|A Plethora of Pikachu!]]''. She is a [[Pokémon Trainer]] who lives in [[Pikachu Valley]] with all of her {{p|Pikachu}}.
 
==History==
Pikala is a slightly eccentric woman who loves Pikachu. She even dresses up in a Pikachu outfit and puts "Pika" into all of her sentences, referring to this manner of speech as "Pika-speak". She also has the ability to know which [[region]] a Pikachu comes from by touching their fur.
 
Pikala debuted in ''[[SM091|A Plethora of Pikachu!]]'', where she met {{Ash}}, {{an|Kiawe}}, and [[Mimo]] when they visited Pikachu Valley. She gave them Pikachu ears and tails to wear and called them '''Pikash''' (Japanese: '''サトピ''' ''Satopi''), '''Pikawe''' (Japanese: '''カピ''' ''Kapi''), and '''Pikamo''' (Japanese: '''ホピ''' ''Hopi''), respectively. Later, when {{TRT}} attempted to steal all of the Pikachu, Pikala, with the help of her {{Shiny}} Pikachu, [[nickname]]d Boss, sent the trio blasting off using {{m|Catastropika}}.
 
She appeared again during a flashback in ''[[SM114|Beauty is Only Crystal Deep!]]'', where she had her [[Pikanium Z]] stolen by a {{p|Pheromosa}}.

However, the Boss was able to sent the trio blasting off using his [[Z-Move]], {{m|Catastropika}}.

==Trivia==
* The Boss, Curly, and Pikala's other Pikachu wear hairstyles similar to the ones that can be given to the {{pkmn2|starter|partner}} Pikachu and {{p|Eevee}} in [[Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!]].
* Pikala's way of adding "Pika" to her sentences mimics the mannerisms of [[Frank]], another character of the day from the {{series|XY}} who is also a big Pikachu fan.
* In the {{pmin|Brazil|Brazilian Portuguese}} dub, Pikala puts "Chu" into all of her sentences instead of "Pika". This is probably due to the similarity between "Pika" and a Brazilian swear word.
