Real life Pikachu animal?
Did Nintendo base their Pikachu after this real animal (a cousin of the rabbit) called a "Pika"??
Well the 'chu' in PikaChu means the squeak made by a mouse in Japanese terms. So maybe it is! In any case these littles guys are pretty darn cute, if you can get use to their little calls! XD
