====Name origin====
Pikachu is a combination of ピカピカ ''pikapika'' (onomatopoeia for sparkle) and チューチュー ''chūchū'' (the sound of a mouse squeaking).<ref>[http://edition.cnn.com/ASIANOW/time/magazine/99/1122/pokemon6.fullinterview2.html TIME - The Ultimate Game Freak]</ref> It could also be onomatopoeia for sneezing, like how Pikachu releases electric attacks in the anime.
