Pikachu Girls: Dressing Up Like Pokemon, The Cute, The Bad, The Slutty
Why do cute girls like to dress up as Pikachu? It's a question for the ages. Pikachu is Nintendo's small, chubby, ground-dwelling rodent whose main powers are electricity and getting cute girls to wear short yellow skirts. You'll see them at every anime or comic book convention, rain or shine. I'd put the photos in order of ascending cuteness, but that would be insulting. Never insult a Pikachu. Not unless you want a lightning bolt up your ass.
1. Pocahontas Pokemon Girl
She's wearing boots that might have been worn by Pocahontas. She's also carrying a backpack in the likeness of Pikachu. Would Pikachu carry a backpack in his own image? Maybe. He's just that kind of rodent.

2. Furry Chest Pikachu
Well hellooo there, Pikachu. My your breasts are looking furry today.
3. Marilyn Monroe Pikachu Girl
Something about her pose reminds me of Marilyn Monroe. Perhaps its the blonde wig. Perhaps its the sweetly sexy expression, the hint of naughtiness.
Again, sorry, can't remember who took this photo.
4. Stripper Pikachu
Actually, this lovely lady's name is Jessica Negri. I don't know if she's a stripper. But any girl who wears a yellow push-up bra and black thigh high stockings with red ribbons is bound to be asked "How much for a lap dance?"
5. Sporty Girl Pikachu
Points for wearing Converse. More points for black nailpolish. Double extra points for yellow tutu. Point deduction to the guy in the background for smirky expression. Yeah, she's dressed like a yellow rodent. So what? (Photo via Bryce Hill)

6. Nerdy Pikachu
This girl (photographed by Sarah Jean) is my favorite. She's nerdy, but hot. She seems like she reads a lot. She's chosen to accessorize her Pikachu ears with a cute pink polkadot ribbon. She is the epitome of sexy cosplay convention chick. Kudos, nerdy Pikachu girl!

7. Not Your Pikachu Girl Next Door
Oh my. This Pikachu's real name is spelled T-R-O-U-B-L-E. Her ears look more like horns, or insect antennae. Her ruched tube dress is rather see-thru. Cover your eyes, children. Cover your eyes. (Photo via CoolSteel27)

8. Too Cool For School Pikachu
She seems like she'd be a cool Pikachu to hang out with. We'd chill. Have some beers. Discharge some electricity. (Photo again via CoolSteel27, who apparently has an eye for sexy Pokemon women.)

9. Three Little Maids Pikachu
Three little maids from school are we! Granted, my knowledge of the Pokemon franchise leaves much to be desired, but what's with the blue and red wigs and gloves in this photo by Johnla5594? Are they variants of Pikachu? Some sort of Pikachu-hybrid? Why the positive/negative symbols on their cheeks? Does it have to do with electricity? Explain, please.

10. Yellow Bob Cut Pikachu
This girl (as photographed by Glenn Loos-Austin) is rocking the yellow bob cut wig. She's got the wide-eyed, mischievous expression down pat. Very cute. Very rodent-like. Nicely done, yellow bob cut girl.
