Biology
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}}. It is always female, has a black heart-shaped spot at the end of its tail, and can be dressed in any of five outfits corresponding to the five [[Contest conditions]]. The second form is {{DL|Ash's Pikachu|Pikachu in a cap}}, which debuted as an event-exclusive Pokémon in [[Generation VII]]. It is always male and has seven variants, each wearing one of {{Ash}}'s [[Ash's hat|hats]] from the anime. In addition to these two forms, many other [[Pikachu variants]] have appeared in various media. The last, {{ga|Partner Pokémon|Partner}} Pikachu is the Pokémon the player [[starter Pokémon|starts with]] in [[Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!|Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu!]]. This Pikachu can be either gender, has higher base stats, and has access to [[move]]s that normal Pikachu do not.
 
As Gigantamax Pikachu, it becomes larger and chubbier. Its tail becomes longer and stores all of the electricity it generates, causing it to glow a bright yellow and enabling it to become as powerful as a lightning strike. Three red clouds float around the tail. Its power is equal to that a power plant; however, it is difficult to use it in peoples' homes since Pikachu can only remain in its Gigantamax form for a short time.<ref>https://swordshield.pokemon.com/en-us/pokemon-galar-region/gigantamax-pikachu/</ref>
 
Pikachu is the [[Signature move|only known Pokémon]] capable of using the [[Z-Move]] {{m|Catastropika}}, while Pikachu in a cap has its own exclusive Z-Move, {{m|10,000,000 Volt Thunderbolt}}.
