Pachirisu (Japanese: パチリス Pachirisu) is an Electric-type Pokémon.
It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon.
Pachirisu are squirrel-like Pokémon. Their fur is white with a faint blueish tint and have a light blue stripe which starts from their forehead and goes all the way down to the tip of the tail. A large white tooth grows out of their mouth. Their eyes are a deep gray. Their cheeks and eyes are similar to that of a Pikachu, but the cheeks are yellow instead of red. Pachirisu have tails that are almost twice as big as they are, with three spikes at the top of the curl, which it can shoot charges from. Their arms and legs are very short. Still, they can run incredibly fast, a trait usually associated with Electric-types.
The blue stripe running down a female's head is shorter than a male's.
Pachirisu has a great amount of electricity flowing in its body. If it builds up enough charge, it may shock other Pokémon with this electricity. Pachirisu are extremely fast, enabling it to tire pursuing Pokémon out quickly.
Pachirisu are active Pokémon, generally being hyper active during the day. When they sleep, Pachirisu like to curl their big, fluffy tails round to the front of their bodies and use them as a pillow. They also like to chase and groom their tails. When a Pachirisu sheds its fur it shapes them into furballs. Because its fur has static in it, the furballs do too. It hides its favorite foods in these static puffs and stores them in tree holes. It does this to protect the food -- if a human or another Pokémon tries to take the food, they will get shocked from the static. A pair of Pachirisu may rub their cheek pouches together to share stored electricity.
Pachirisu are generally found in tree tops in forests, as well as the outskirts of a forest and near power plants. Many Trainers like to catch Pachirisu or keep it as a pet because of their cute looks.
Pachirisu is known to eat mainly berries. Its diet is similar to that of Pikachu.
