OverviewEditPikachu is a scholarly 12 year old who can be seen as a child prodigy. He generally tries to act polite to everyone he meets, though he occasionally has childish bouts of naivete and can be quick to tears. Pikachu was a bit isolated before he met the others, spending time alone inventing. But he eventually met a few friends that helped him become more social and outgoing. Pikachu has a strong bond with Kleat the Togetic, whom he strongly looks up to and works beside. Though he is well versed in science and technology, he is utterly dumbfounded by romance. He has a fear of the paranormal, or things that can't be explained through science. Pikachu has a personal attatchment to his creations, often weeping if they get destroyed.
By the time of Year 8 Pikachu has become human, dubbing himself Pike when in this state. He now has an understanding of magitech, often using it to aid him.
Pikachu debuts in PokeAdventures, where his inventions help the gang numerous times in the story, though one in particular goes insane and has to be killed by Sheebop. He later has a role in RPCRP, being a member of the group since the beginning, and connecting with fellow inventor Kleat the Togetic. Pikachu is a key character in one particular arc, where a malfunctioning invention injures him and leaves him in a state of amnesia. It takes the efforts of Rhodium, Usagi, Merlee and Flamber to bring him back to normal. Pikachu becomes Kleat's assistant by the end of RPCRP, and only makes guest appearances in Darius League Quest. During the Second Secret War, he's brainwashed into inventing a sinister device for Vanessa but he's soon brought out of his trance and assists Teddy, Strawbella and Zula in defeating her. He's set to return for RPCRP2. Pikachu has a starring role in KaPRPT, which documents his adventures with Kleat as they stumble from one mishap to another. Some of his exploits include a court battle, a duel with a cryptozoologist, entering a battle tournament as well as finding himself wrapped up in a citywide demon attack. Pikachu comes out of his shell quite a bit in the RP, Kleat's influence leading him to becoming more adventurous and self-assured.
Some time after Crossover City is restored and citizens can come and go as they please Pikachu decides to take an extended stay in Armeda, the country's technology catching his interest. In his stay with Kleat he studies magitech and puts his scientific research to work, gaining quite a few connections there as well. By Chilling Whispers Pikachu moves to Denland to rejoin his old friends and becomes a member of Missy Pop. Pikachu and Kleat serve as tech specialists, providing the group with their machinery and operating mission control. He is turned human by Shiruru's spell just like several others in the team.
