Despite Pichu being the first form in the Pichu evolutionary line and TPI's tending to start with all unevolved pokemon, Pichu is commonly overlooked and Pikachu is usually chosen instead since Pikachu is the most famous pokemon.
Pichu and Pichi (the notched ear Pikachu) joined the game in TPA. They are the host, Raichu's, nephews. They usually do everything together and their best friends are Swablu and Vileplume. But when Pichu evolved into Pikachu, Pichi voted Pikachu off for not waiting to evolve at the same time as his brother. Pichi is still in the competition as of Episode 23.
Pichu debuted in TPA along with 15 other new contestants. Being the Noah of the group, Pichu may tend to be cynical and resort to sarcasm occasionally. Wooper seemed to become Pichu's friend in Episode 1 of TPA, but Roselia doesn't care what Wooper thinks, possibly hinting a conflict between Pichu and Roselia. Pichu finished 8th in the Shake It Up challenge out of the new guys, and was put on Team Safari Zone. In Episode 2, Pichu's excellent performance in the laser tag portion of the Suite Life challenge not only gave Team Safari Zone immunity and the respect of his team, but it caused Pichu to evolve into Pikachu, becoming the first TPA newcomer to evolve.
Pichu debuted in Total Pokemon Gilligan's Island and was put on Team Orichivip and is a movie star,he tends to be an asshole but manages to use his charm to get what he wants.He helped turn his team on Flareon,the jock of the team, which also pissed off Ponyta and Vulpix. However, next episode he was once again in the bottom 2 with Rapidash, but Rapidash played Gilligan's Hat, similar to the hidden immunity idol and got him out.
In Total Pokemon Gilligan's Action, he is now a Raichu, and his girlfriend: Sandslash is now in the game and currently are still in the game on Team Stallone.
- Pichu and Pichi are one of the five sets of twin pokemon in the Total Pokemon Universe, along with Misdreavous525's Espeon and Umbreon and Ellamise and Illumise and militairJW's Machop bros. and Aipom bros.
