Default What gender is Ash's Pikachu?

As the title says.

I think I remember back in Kanto, Indigo season. That Pikachu was a girl.
--
And now allot of people are saying that Pikachu is a boy.
-
I for one have watched the anime through, minus most of Johto/Sinnoh.

So what gender is Pikachu now?

Well, Pikachu is voiced by a female. But his tail takes the characteristics of a male.

I'm pretty sure Pikachu is a boy, and has been a boy through several regions. owo Whenever he cheered for May in contests, I remember him wearing a...What're they called? Hakama? I dunno. I'm pretty sure it's male attire for the Japanese, though. Traditionally.

Pikachu has to my knowledge, always been a dude. Further proof of said dudeness, not counting the tail of course, was in a sinnoh episode.

A Togepi used attract on Meowth, Pikachu, Crogunk, Piplup, and Yanmega. Togepi was a female because Meowth, the unquestionable dude, was attracted to her. Pikachu, Crogunk, and Piplup also became attracted, thus proving their genders to be that of male. Yanmega wasn't, thus proving her a girl.

Pikachu is most certainly a dude.

But the show started back when they didn't have differences and stuff. He's (presumably, unless Oak went trucking to another region to get him) a Kanto Pikachu, after all. Or she. It would be funny if there was an arc where they found out that Pikachu is actually a girl. xD

And the fact that Pikachu is voiced by a girl doesn't really mean much- in a lot of video games, guys will be voiced by girls. :P

Ash is also voiced by women :/
Anyway, If Pikachu is a girl, then Dawn's Buneary is gay.
That is all.

While male is more likely, it's gender should simply be left uncomfirmed. Pikachu is Pikachu and leave it at that. I remember reading somewhere that besides gender-specific Pokemon like Jynx and Nidoking, all Pokemon in the anime are purposely ambivalent. It's so as not to engender discrimination or criticism. So apparently, Pikachu's gender is subjective.

The thing is that Pikachu has been confirm to be male in a Sinnoh episode. Also the games have have genders for over ten years and this has clearly crossed over into the anime especially with the recent usage of Attract.

Pokemon have had genders all the way back to Kanto when Meowth had fell in love with that one female Meowth proving that Pokemon do indeed have genders.

In the first season, Ash referred to Pikachu as "His Buddy" and "He".

... not unless Ash's Pikachu is a lesbian. Which isn't likely in a kid's show. xD

I did see that episode, by the way.

I'm counting the tail thing as something exclusive to Sinnoh, despite being possible in HeartGold and SoulSilver. Otherwise, that one episode where Ash almost gave up his Pikachu for all of those Pikachu would mean that somewhere deep within the Kanto region is a Pikachu fraternity, and all of the female Pikachu live underground... yeah. That's it.

Pikachu is male, confirmed by a Togepi using attract and possibly through gender differences in the games.

I was speculating him to be a boy all along.

Obviously a male from the episodes we saw before this, it's no use trying to prove he's a female. At least Pikachu's a male, because at least it doesn't make him as possessive to Ash as Chikorita had been.

Thanks for reading.

And if you missed the Sinnoh episode, there's always the Unova episode of when Ash catches Snivy. Snivy used attract on Ash's Pokemon, and only Pidove was immune to it. Ash is heard even clearly stating that Snivy and Pidove are females.
