====Pre-series====
[[File:Ash Pikachu Pichu and KanghaskanSS001.png|thumb|250px|Pichu with his adoptive family]]
As shown in [[SS001]], Pikachu was once a lonely {{pkmn2|wild}} {{p|Pichu}} who lived in the woods in the outskirts of [[Pallet Town]]. After falling off a cliff, he was saved by a mother {{p|Kangaskhan}}, who, after realizing Pichu had nowhere to go, placed Pichu in her pouch and took him into her care. Eventually, Pichu and the child Kangaskhan grew bigger, and carrying them both became a burden to the mother. Realizing this, Pichu left his adoptive mother's pouch in the middle of the night while Kangaskhan's pack was asleep. Turning back to say goodbye to his family, his feelings of gratitude caused him to [[evolution|evolve]] into Pikachu. After taking a moment to realize what had just happened to him, Pikachu finished his goodbyes, and left for parts unknown.
 
====[[Original series]]====
=====Kanto=====
[[File:Ash Pikachu EP001.png|thumb|left|220px|Pikachu's debut appearance]]
In the first episode of the [[Pokémon anime]], ''[[EP001|Pokémon - I Choose You!]]'', Ash woke up late the day he was supposed to go to [[Professor Oak's Laboratory]] to obtain his first Pokémon. When he arrived at the lab, the three available starter Pokémon, {{p|Bulbasaur}}, {{p|Charmander}}, and {{p|Squirtle}}, had already been taken by other Trainers who had arrived on time. Seeing Ash's disappointment, Professor Oak gave him Pikachu, who, at first, [[Obedience|did not care at all for his new Trainer]], constantly zapping him and anyone else nearby. He refused to go into his {{i|Poké Ball}}, and when Ash failed to catch a {{p|Pidgey}}, he laughed at him. However, by the end of the episode, Ash gained Pikachu's trust by protecting him from an attack by a flock of angry {{p|Spearow}}. Seeing this act of selflessness, Pikachu defended Ash from the Spearow as well, and the two of them became inseparable friends, a moment that was capitalized on by catching a glimpse of {{an|Ho-Oh|an unknown Pokémon}} flying by. Ash then rushed to [[Viridian City]] to get Pikachu hospitalized quickly, as he had been badly injured during the fight.
 
Pikachu, like his Trainer, is always happy to battle. He often tries his very best, but when he loses, he doesn't complain or feel bad about himself, especially when Ash reassures him. Ash and Pikachu are almost identical personality-wise, and thus are the perfect match for one another. Most others agree, except for [[Burgundy]], who in ''[[BW019|A Connoisseur's Revenge!]]'' said that Ash had a terrible relationship with all of his Pokémon, though this is more due to her inexperience in determining such relationships. Though rare, the two can still butt heads at times. When they first met, Pikachu would shock Ash with electricity out of vitriol. While being zapped by Pikachu still happens regularly for poor Ash, it's usually when he angers his buddy (such as when Ash rubs and pulls Pikachu's cheeks), or by accident (when Ash grabs Pikachu's tail by mistake).
 
[[File:ZappedAgain.png|thumb|250px|left|Pikachu does not like having his cheeks rubbed]]
In general, Pikachu as a species is not particularly powerful, but Ash's Pikachu is an anomaly, overcoming odds in {{pkmn|battle}} numerous times. In ''[[EP002|Pokémon Emergency!]]'', {{MTR}} remarked that Pikachu's power "far exceeds its evolutionary level". In ''[[EP005|Showdown in Pewter City]]'', he defeated [[Brock's Onix]] with an {{type|Electric}} attack that triggered the sprinkler system causing Onix to be drenched in water, one of its weaknesses. Ash's Pikachu has also defeated very powerful Pokémon that Ash's other Pokémon were unable to, such as {{p|Dragonite}}, {{p|Metagross}} and [[Mega Evolution|Mega]] {{TP|Korrina|Lucario}}. He was also the second of Ash's Pokémon to defeat a legendary Pokémon in battle, defeating [[Brandon's Legendary titans#Regice|Brandon's Regice]] to win the Brave Symbol. He later fought {{si|Tobias}}'s Latios to a draw in [[DP189|the semi-finals]] of the [[Lily of the Valley Conference]]. He has helped Ash win countless battles and [[Gym]] and {{pkmn|League}} matches.
