===Personality and characteristics===
===In the Arceus and the Jewel of Life manga===
In the {{ma|Arceus and the Jewel of Life|manga adaptation}} of the movie, Spiky-eared Pichu is a [[wild Pokémon]] who the characters meet in the distant past. She assists the characters in escaping from the movie's main antagonist, [[Marcus]].
* A picture of a [[Pikachu short]] poster that featured Spiky-eared Pichu alongside {{AP|Pikachu}} and {{TP|Dawn|Piplup}} was leaked several days before this Pokémon was officially revealed.
* She was first mentioned at the end of a movie preview of ''Arceus and the Jewel of Life'' when movie director [[Kunihiko Yuyama]] talked about a "small, yellow Electric-type that would save the world."
* Spiky-eared Pichu's sprite in HeartGold and SoulSilver is in a different pose than that of a normal Pichu, but she retains the two frames that a normal Pichu uses in her animation; thus, she is the only Pokémon to have three animation frames in [[Generation IV]].
* According to [[Shōko Nakagawa]]'s autobiography, the Spiky-eared Pichu was originally going to be a '''White Pichu''' (Japanese: '''ホワイトピチュー''').
* Spiky-eared Pichu shares several similarities with {{pkmn|Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire}}'s [[Cosplay Pikachu]]. Both are female-only variants of the {{p|Pikachu}} evolution line who were introduced in [[remake]]s. They are both incapable of evolving, breeding, being traded, or being transferred to later games. They also both cannot be obtained {{Shiny}}, though Shiny variants exist in the game code for them. They are also both a palette swap in [[Super Smash Bros. Ultimate]]
