Ash's pikachu is a GIRL

Over the years many people have asked the question, "what gender is Ash's pikachu?" Some say male, some female, and some say "it."

All through the years of my pokemon journey I have been studying the hormones of ash's pikachu and stand by what I have always believed, that ash's pikachu is a female. here is a list of evidence I have to support that.

1. pikachu has shown a great deal of female hormones such going crazy, being irritable, screaming, and snapping at others when upset, just like girls often do when upset, dealing with drama, and/or PMS'ing

2.Pikachu has always shown a very mothering instinct with smaller pokemon. Ash's pikachu has countlessly put its life on the line to protect misty's togepi and the pichu brothers. Whenever it was around these pokemon it would protect, care for, and try to set a good example for thses pokemon so they would learn how to behave. Much like a mother does for her children.

3. some people believe that pikachu must be male becase it is so powerful. I say that is sexist, because I have always thought of pikachu as a strong female character like xena the princess warrior, Helen of troy, and wonder woman.

4. some people believe that pikachu is male becaue the end of its tale is flat and square. Because in diamond and pearl, males have flat tails, and females have inverted tails. But this proves nothing since there where male and female pikachus long before that rule came out, and all of those female pikachus in sliver/gold, sappire/ruby, and leafgreen/firered, had flat tails.

5. Some pointed out that mistys's togepi once used the move "attract" on ash's pikachu, and it was effective, saying this proves pikachu to be male. But there never was any clarification that misty's togepi was female.

6. now people say that the fact that Dawns buneary has a crush on pikachu which is obvious proof that ash's pikachu is a boy. But just like misty's togepi there is no clarification that her buneary is a female. In fact the ONLY reason they believe buneary to be a girl is because of its affection for ash's pikachus, who technically was never confirmed to be a boy. so there is no way from that you can prove eithers pokemons gender just from that.

--CONCLUSION--
It is has female hormones, a mothering nature,its tail has no say, and both togepi and buneary where never confirmed to be females, which proves Ash's pikachu to be a GIRL.

The actor for Pikachu is a girl, but I am still not convinced that Pikachu is a girl by your article. I respect your opinion, though! Maybe we'll all just never know. :P

Ash's voice actor is a girl too. About the Buneary thing... All of Dawn's Normal-type Pokémon are female. This is from Bulbapedia. Check it out if u don't believe me. http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki//Da­wn_­(An­ime)
So that's why I think Pikachu's male.

Thank you all for reading my article, I am fully aware of Bulbapedia.net. (In fact it was that website where I got some of my infomation) Bulbapedia.net says buneary is a girl, but there was never anything on the anime to confirm that expeact for its crush on pikachu, (Which was never proven to be a boy) And its girl clothing, but its natural for both pokemon/real world girls to dress there pets in girls clothing regardless of there gender. In fact in the anime Ash's pikachu has sported both men and womens clothing.

If pikachu was a girl, pokemon would be disturbing because many people know that buneary has a crush on pikachu. If Pikachu was a girl, wellt hat would be disturbing.

Also, who's to say bunery, if you stil want to believe it's a girl, HAS to like boys? Not trying to make all the homophobes uncomferable, but in japan, were this show is made, they often have same-sex couples. (he two girls from sailor moon, in the dub they tell you they are cosins or sisters or something, but in the original, they are a couple.) sorry to tell you all this, but it's true.

I absolutly agree with you, in fact one of my OWN threorys is that pikachu is a girl and bunery is just a wimpy boy, or that they both are girls but pikachu is not a lesbian, thus not interested. LOL.

Togepi ALSO used attract on Meowth. Meowth is a guy and attract worked. Thus Togepi is a female. Thus Pikachu is a male. You=proven wrong.

Actually: Ash's Pikachu has been directly referred to as male in BOTH the Japanese and English animé for Pokémon... watch the episode, "Pewter City" (EP005) ...Pikachu is called a "he". And...I'm not sure if anyone knows japanese, but Pikachu has been referred to with male nouns and such. It's pretty easy to notice. And besides; who said a male Pokémon cannot express female hormones or a mothering nature?

'pikachu has shown a great deal of female hormones such going crazy, being irritable, screaming, and snapping at others when upset' I've men do this behavior, good attempt at using stereotyping though

'some people believe that pikachu must be male becase it is so powerful. I say that is sexist, because I have always thought of pikachu as a strong female character like xena the princess warrior, Helen of troy, and wonder woman.' YOU THOUGHT, your opinion holds no sway here.

'pichu brothers. Whenever it was around these pokemon it would protect, care for, and try to set a good example for thses pokemon so they would learn how to behave. Much like a mother does for her children.' same species so its likely that he would help them., pikachu likes to help people like Ash does, last I checked he's a dude(a faggot/jk but still a dude)

'Some pointed out that mistys's togepi once used the move "attract" on ash's pikachu, and it was effective, saying this proves pikachu to be male. But there never was any clarification that misty's togepi was female.' assumptions eh? nice try using things you can't prove.

'now people say that the fact that Dawns buneary has a crush on pikachu which is obvious proof that ash's pikachu is a boy. But just like misty's togepi there is no clarification that her buneary is a female. In fact the ONLY reason they believe buneary to be a girl is because of its affection for ash's pikachus, who technically was never confirmed to be a boy. so there is no way from that you can prove eithers pokemons gender just from that.' Yeah you're trying to say Buneary a dude right? you know last I checked dudes don't wear cheerleading outfits...

'--CONCLUSION--
It is has female hormones, a mothering nature,its tail has no say, and both togepi and buneary where never confirmed to be females, which proves Ash's pikachu to be a GIRL.' Pure opinion with barely any support from the series relying on behavior seen by both genders and assumptions/denial.

Have a nice day

The show is based off of the original games. In yellow version, Pikachu is always MALE. The first pikachu that you start with that follows you? Yeah, male. Sorry to burst your bubble. First, moody doesn't mean female. That's sexist. So is saying a male can't be compassionate. Trust a woman here, that's a guy. Pikachu is called HE, HIM, BUDDY, GUY, etc. Original language and translations.

Ash's Pikachu was made before the gender difference altering its design mid-series would've been a bad plan.

your "proof" literally proves nothing. actually there is proof that ash's pikachu is in fact a boy. watch the show and you'll hear ash say "he", "his", and "him" in reference to the pokemon.

Pikachu is a male, look at it's tail, if it was a female, the tip of the tail would be heart shaped at the end. Search it up on serebii.net

Jessie's yanmega is agirl she found out when ash's pikachu and dawns Piplup fell in love with the evil togipi and not yanmega so thats proof that ash's pikachu is a dude. plus ash's FEMALE snivy used attract on ash's pikachu, it worked. so ash's pikachu is a guy

Reason 1 can be denied because well... he got the emotions from Ash and possibly Misty.

Reason 2 can be denied because Pikachu protects Togepi like she was valueable and treats the Pichu brothers as his children. Usually any male will protect they're valuables (in this situation someone they like more than a friend). Though females can still protect males from danger, a true male would protect anyone they want at any cost.

So it's sexist to say a male Pokemon is more powerful but it's not to say it must be a girl because it throws tantrums and is caring? Males do that to so all of your reasons are sexist :S also pikacku is clearly a male.

Pikachu is definitely a male. It has a relationship with buneary a girl (note the show is for children), and if pikachu were a female pikachu like a lot of female pokemon (meloetta, latias, and bayleaf) would have fallen to have a crush on him.

If you notice the gender differences psychically, The female pikachu's tail is NOTCHED, while ash's Pikachu's tail remains straight at the end.

Pikachu was confirmed a male. They must have decided on male because changing him to female would be more complicated, since he doesn't have a female pikachu's tail shape, and that would be "deviating" from the game...

IN FURTHER SERIES(SINNOH) meoth and pikachu fall victim to a togepi's attract and since meowth has definite gender pikachu is male p.s.and evidence piece 1 is sexist and piece 2 is too (you don't have to be woman to treat others like your own kids) in conclusion you are sexist and have no real proof for either side.

I started rewatching the whole series recently and near the start of the anime, Princess Day happens in which all boys have to submit to the girls desires. Misty made them buy her a lot of things. Anyway, if Pikachu was a girl, it wouldn't have reacted in that way and instead of suffering, would have taken it's gender too it's advantage. As everyone knows, Pikachu and all pokemon are neither boy or girl, just referred to as 'it'. So, there is no clarification but earlier evidence show it's more likely to be a boy if anything. Sorry, but you have no proof.

pikachu is a boy. he is just taking care of togepi and pichu brothers cause he is friendly. just like ash bulbausaur he is a boy and he was helping and taking care of the pokemon in the hidden village. pikachu is also a boy due to the way he acts he is brave annd treats ash like a brother .

Hold it!While i agree that your article is sexist i disagree on everybody's comments.There is no girl proof or boy proof and why do you even care?Boy or girl pikachu is pikachu.Besides i think oak called pikachu a he in the first episode in season ome but i'm not sure.A tail is proof of neither side since there were ALOT of pikachus before that.Saying something about craziness and protection of younger pokemon can be considered motherly AND fatherly.There is no real way to tell so stop arguing.

Bro pikachu is male he has always been my proof 1.in the first episode i choose you professor oak said his name is pikachu then the funny part where he shocks ash:D2.He has very like male/female behavior but just because he shows a motherly like way does not prove anything a father would protect there child.3.in the episode setting the world on its bunneary bunneary seemed to have a crush on pikachu.4.Pikachu is very strong like a male usually would there are very powerful female characters but does not prove anything.5.Pikachu has the male tail unlike dented ones like females have.6.in the episode where no togipi has gone before it seem the togipi used attract on pikachu and meouth and also meoth thats right :D. in then episode where he gets snivy it uses attract on pikachu which worked though ash pidove was the only one able to stop to the person that said ashs pidove was male it is actually female sorry bro.well thats it bro looks like your wrong so sorry ashs pikachu is male the people who said he was male they me was right sorry you were wrong so SUCK ON THAT WE WERE RIGHT

You're are all dumbass's. Pikachu is a BOY. I'm from Portugal, and here "O" is a personal pronoun for "boy" and "A" for girl. In the TV. Ash's says: este é O meu parceiro Pikachu. (This is my partner Pikachu) "my" is "O" in this case. If Pikachu was a girl, it would be: este é A minha parceirA Pikachu

Pikachu is a boy. When battling Snivy, Snivy used attract on Pikachu and it was effective. Snivy is proven to be a girl because when it used attract on Ash's pidove, it didn't work and ash said, "So Pidove's a girl." The only way for Snivy's attract to work on Pikachu but not on Pidove is if Snivy was a girl and Pikachu is a boy.
