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}}. 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 becomes capable of storing 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></ref>
