Pachirisu — in Japanese also “Pachirisu” パチリス is an ELECTRIC-type Pokémon. It does not evolve — at least not so far. Maybe it will Mega-evolve in a future game. I know that they are not very powerful, but I have always enjoyed this Sinnoh-region native. I like one on my team, especially in the early part of a Diamond & Pearl adventure. I like electric types in general, and besides he/she is so CUTE!
I named my Pachiritsu “GiGi” after the famous movie-musical, which won the Oscar for Best Picture in 1958. Trailer linked here.
Yes, that movie is very “gay” — but not in THAT way!
I only keep Pachirisu if it has the “PickUp ability”. When GiGi finds an item, I always say “you good girl”.
Thank heaven for little squirrels!
I have nicknamed several Pachirisu. It is a cute Pokemon, so I always give it a “cutsey ” nickname, like “Sparky” or “Mr. Chips”. Here are some more examples.
“Chi Chi” – after the Mexican Restaurant Chi-Chi’s.
“Pocky” – after the snack sticks popular with otaku.
“Puccho” – after the Japanese candy chews. See this old Puccho candy commercial by AKB48.
Everyone loves Puccho!
