Flavour Text
Ruby PICHU charges itself with electricity more easily on days with thunderclouds or when the air is very dry. You can hear the crackling of static electricity coming off this POKéMON.
Sapphire When PICHU plays with others, it may short out electricity with another PICHU, creating a shower of sparks. In that event, this POKéMON will begin crying, startled by the flash of sparks.
Emerald It is still inept at retaining electricity. When it is startled, it discharges power accidentally. It gets better at holding power as it grows older.
Fire Red Despite its small size, it can zap even adult humans. However, if it does so, it also surprises itself.
Leaf Green It is not yet skilled at storing electricity. It may send out a jolt if amused or startled.
