Ash's Pikachu was the first Pokemon that Ash Red Ketchum obtained, having been given Pikachu as his starter by Professor Oak. Pikachu and Ash have strong bonds of mutual trust and friendship that are undaunted by time and place.

Pikachu, like his Trainer, has a very sociable and optimistic personality and a never-say-die attitude, and like Ash is an inspiration to the people around him, Pikachu is also a highly influential and inspirational member of his team to his fellow Pokemon. Pikachu shares a close sibling relationship with certain Pokemon like Bonnie's Dedenne, Clemont's Bunnelby and Dawn's Piplup, and Pikachu has also been the romantic interest of female Pokemon like Dawn's Buneary and Serena's Sylveon. However, Pikachu only got together with Sylveon ultimately, pairing with her when Ash and Serena got together as a couple.
