    Pikachu has never changed aside from appearance and it's attitude in EP001.

    I don't fully understand this question. He's the same yellow mouse he's been since Ep001. All that's changed is his moveset. I miss his love of ketchup gag though. He's matured a lot since Day 1 if anything

    I'm personally waiting to see his impressions this region, like when he's imitated Turtwig, Wobbuffet, etc in the past..

    Hmm, it's appearance yeah, it's personality barely imo.

    And to be fair I kind of class his ketchup love as more of a gag.

    He did an impression of Scolipede in BW009 ^^.

    Pikachu has the same voice actress in every dub except a few early International episodes where the original sound was lost. They had an imitator supply the lost lines. If anyone's interested in hearing the difference just watch the first episode dubbed compared to the raw. Almost every line Pikachu says in the scene where Ash is dragging it by the leash and rubber gloves from Pallet Town was swapped.

    I sort of agree that Pikachu had more range in his personality in the early days. Now it seems like he just agrees with whatever Ash says or does and generally plays the " Good Cop " to all the problematic Pokemon the group catches. Its stubbornness comes around every once in a while.

    How many times in Kanto has the ketchup thing been done, exactly?

    And I'm fine with both...

    I honestly don't like pikachu in general first it sucks Lets get that out of the way second the only difference between the old one and the new one is the old one liked Ketchup while being kinda chubby the new one has a better moveset than before so It's not like the yellow creature has really changed in 14+ years.

    Nice reasoning there.

    second the only difference between the old one and the new one is the old one liked Ketchup
    Nothing has said he doesn't like ketchup now, just because it hasn't been in an episode for 600+ episodes doesn't mean Pikachu automatically hates it.

    Pikachu's still as cute as ever, and it's not like he's just a cheerful rat in every episode. I mean, seeing him getting all pissed off about Meowth's betrayal half-scared me.

    I was about to ask the same thing. If people didn't bring up the ketchup thing in every thread about Pikachu, I would forget it even happened. It was so minor. Anyway, it terms of looks they are both okay with me. Pikachu is Pikachu. Personality wise, old Pikachu. Because he still had a personality in the old days.

    I think he has gotten more, angelic as you would say about a male in the past seasons.

    I still like Pikachu now, he had more attitude at the beginning of the series but he's still great.

    That ketchup gag was priceless.

    1.His vocie never chnged.

    2.Why do people act like the ketchup thing was a huge gag? It happened in only one ep of the OS and once in AG. Not sure why people are acting like its a real huge gag like Jiggly.

    We know its not a huge gag, but its still a cute and memorable moment which will always be one of my favourite Pikachu pastimes.

    The old Pikachu or the new? Uh, they're the same to me. But I like this Pikachu for some reason. It seems to be more involved in the show. Unlike before when I barely noticed Pikachu was there after a while.

    My ideal battle ever!
