If you listen carefully, you can perceive the voice of this adorable Pokemon Pichu Funko Pop figure!
The Pichu hatched from an Egg made by a Pikachu or Raichu holding a Light Ball. Known as the “Tiny Mouse” species of the Pokémon series, Pichu is the pre-evolved version of Pikachu. Pichu made its debut appearance in Pokémon Gold and Silver and has since made appearances in the animated series. Pichu is often seen as a sidekick-like character for Pikachu.
Junichi Masuda noted that he and Ken Sugimori wanted to create a Pokémon to be the “next” Pikachu, but were initially having a difficult time creating a design that they felt would be as appealing. After long discussion, they decided to create a Pokémon that evolved into Pikachu, and Sugimori developed Pichu as a result.
