Ash's Pikachu

3 bytes removed, 31 March
Trivia: replaced: evolution stone → Evolution stone, evolutionary stone → Evolution stone
* ''[[DP170|An Elite Coverup!]]'' has been the only time when Ash does not use Pikachu against an [[Elite Four]] member.
* Pikachu is the first evolved Pokémon Ash obtained, although, at the time Ash obtained Pikachu, he did not yet have a {{p|Pichu|pre-evolved form}}, and he would not be seen as a Pichu until [[SS001]].
* Pikachu is Ash's only Pokémon capable of evolving by use of an evolutionaryEvolution stone, not counting {{AP|Snorunt}} who could not evolve through the use of an evolutionEvolution stone at the time of its capture and normal evolution.
* Pikachu is the first Pokémon in the anime to defeat a Mega Evolved Pokémon without Mega Evolving, defeating [[Korrina]]'s [[Mega Evolution|Mega]] {{TP|Korrina|Lucario}} in ''[[XY044|Showdown at the Shalour Gym!]]''.
* As Pikachu hates being in his {{i|Poké Ball}}, it is rarely ever seen, with a known total of only six confirmed appearances throughout the whole series (flashbacks not included). These being in ''[[EP001|Pokémon - I Choose You!]]'', ''[[EP005|Showdown in Pewter City]]'', ''[[Snow Way Out!]]'', ''[[AG024|A Corphish Out of Water!]]'', ''[[XY020|Breaking Titles at the Chateau!]]'', and ''[[XY079|A Frenzied Factory Fiasco!]]''.
