Do I really need to start this article with an explanation of who and what Pikachu is?
I mean, I suppose for those less enmeshed in Pokémon as a cultural force (So...over 40? I guess?) there may be some confusion in regards to whether Pikachu is a breed of Pokémon or the name of the specific Pokémon that pals around with Ash Ketchum.
Yes. Because anime.
