Watch Pikachu get drawn. Why watch him get drawn? Because he’s got a lot going for him. He’s cute. And he’s the star of all those Pokémon cartoons.
Pikachu is the most popular creature in the Pokémon universe. He’s small, yellow, and can store electricity in his cheeks. He’ll keep that electricity there until he’s ready to unleash an electric shock upon other Pokémon.
Pikachu is actually not one particular creature, but a species in the Pokémon universe. There are lower and higher evolutions of Pikachu. But the Pikachu commonly known to Pokémon lovers is the one trained by Ash Ketchum, the main character of the Pokemon cartoon series.
In this video artist Mark Crilley draws Pikachu. He gives Pikachu that timeless appeal by drawing him into a stamp.
