Pikachu is a short, chubby unisex rodent Pokémon.
It is small, agile and lightweight and covered in yellow fur with two horizontal brown stripes on its back. It has a small mouth, long, pointed ears with black tips, brown eyes, and two red circles on its cheeks. There are pouches inside its cheeks where it stores electricity. It has short forearms with five fingers on each paw, and its feet each have three toes. At the base of its lightning bolt-shaped tail is patch of brown fur at the base.
A female will have a V-shaped notch at the end of its tail, which looks like the top of a heart. It is classified as a quadruped, but it has been known to stand and walk on its hind legs.
Our Pikachu pop-up card is beloved by girls and boys around the world. Pikachu is super recognizable, with a balloon in the Macy’s Day parade every year. It is a star, right up there with Super Mario, Charlie Brown and Snoopy.
