While adding GIFs to our awesome Thrills and Spills chatroom, I came across an image of two Pikachus and a Togepi:

At first, I thought it was Ashachu, but it's not—just a Pikachu with bedhead.

Which episode/canon is this shot from?

  • @Mysticial Funny—that one didn't even cross my mind at the time. Probably because I was in class. I wonder if they're even from the same episode, though; neither Pikachu has the fluffy forehead hair as far as I can tell.

    @Eric: They aren't. That Pikachu was a clone from the first movie. This one is from the anime (Ritchie's IIRC). Mar 9 '13 at 10:45

That's Sparky, Ritchie's Pikachu.

His first appearance was episode 78 of the original anime.


The Pikachu's Sparky, trained by Ritchie.

That particular picture came from the episode when they made a come back to the Johto region, at the end of "Hi Ho Silver Away" and the beginning of "Parent Trapped."
