Pikachu is one of the species of Pokemon that can be captured, trained, and used in battle. According to series producer Tajiri Satoshi, the name “Pikachu” is derived from two Japanese sounds: “pika”, a sound of an electric spark, and “chu”, a sound a mouse makes. This pokemon, among many others, were conceived the Game Freak’s character development team, which were later finalized by artist Sugimori Ken.
