Pikachu charges itself while sleeping overnight, though stress and a lack of sleep can affect this. It is able to release electric discharges of varying intensity. Pikachu has [[EP030|been known]] to build up energy in its glands, which it will need to discharge to avoid complications. It is also able to release energy through its tail, which acts as a grounding rod, as well as recharging fellow Pikachu with electric shocks. Pikachu can also electrify itself to use its [[signature move]] {{m|Volt Tackle}}.
Pikachu has three [[List of Pokémon with form differences#Pikachu|alternate forms]]: one, the [[Cosplay Pikachu]] appeared exclusively in {{g|Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire}}.
