Piku-chan is Ian's Pikachu, and the first Pokémon Ian has ever befriended.


Piku-chan is a caring, kind-hearted and brave individual who doesn't hesitate to protect those he cares about. He is this way because Ian raised him with love and kindness since he was a Pichu.

Battle Strategy

Piku-chan tends to go all-out on the offensive, with moves such as Thunderbolt and Mega Punch. This has caused him and Ian to consider investing in status moves like Raru's Hypnosis or Mothra's String Shot. Piku-chan fares very well when he joins forces with ally Pokémon like Oshawittle, Raru or Mothra.

Ian first received Piku-chan's Egg from his Pokémon Preschool teacher when he was 4 and protected it from harm. One spring morning, when a five-year-old Ian checked on his Egg, it was shaking and glowing, so he went to show his parents. When the Egg hatched, Piku-chan was born. The day after Piku-chan's Egg hatched, Ian brought his new friend to show the teacher, and Ian and Piku-chan had been friends ever since.

Through the love and kindness Ian raised Piku-chan with, he evolved from a Pichu into a Pikachu, and when Ian turned 10 and picked his starter, Ian brought Piku-chan with him as well and started their adventures in the vast World of Pokémon together.

  • Ian is Piku-chan's trainer, but Piku-chan feels that Ian is more like a father to him (granted that Ian did raise Piku-chan from an Egg.)
  • Oshawittle is one of Piku-chan's first friends outside of Ian and his family. Both Piku-chan and Oshawittle are Ian's Starter Pokémon and have been with him since Ian started his journey.
