Pikachu (Japanese: ピカチュウ Hepburn: Pikachū) (/ˈpiːkətʃuː/; [pikatɕɯː]) are a species of Pokémon, fictional creatures that appear in an assortment of video games, animated television shows and movies, trading card games, and comic books licensed by The Pokémon Company, a Japanese corporation.
The Pikachu design was conceived by Atsuko Nishida and finalized by Ken Sugimori. Pikachu first appeared in Pokémon Red and Green in Japan, and later in the first internationally released Pokémon video games, Pokémon Red and Blue, for the original Game Boy.
Like other species of Pokémon, Pikachu are often captured and groomed by humans to fight other Pokémon for sport. Pikachu are one of the most well-known varieties of Pokémon, largely because Pikachu is a central character in the Pokémon anime series. Pikachu is regarded as a major character of the Pokémon franchise as well as its mascot, and has become an icon of Japanese pop culture in recent years. It is also seen as one of the major mascots for Nintendo. Pikachu Plush Toy Iron Man Toys
Developed by Game Freak and published by Nintendo, the Pokémon series began in Japan in 1996, and features several species of creatures called “Pokémon” that players, called “trainers”, are encouraged to capture, train, and use to battle other players’ Pokémon or interact with the game’s world. Pikachu was one of several different Pokémon designs conceived by Game Freak’s character development team. Pikachu Plush Toy Artist Atsuko Nishida is credited as the main person behind Pikachu’s design, which was later finalized by artist Ken Sugimori. According to series producer Satoshi Tajiri, the idea of the name came from a mouse like animal called pika and then derived from a combination of two Japanese sounds: pika, a sound an electric spark makes, and chu, a sound a mouse makes. Despite its name’s origins, however, Nishida based Pikachu’s generation 1 design, especially its cheeks, off of squirrels.  Developer Junichi Masuda noted Pikachu’s name as one of the most difficult to create, due to an effort to make it appealing to both Japanese and American audiences.
