In Pokkén Tournament Edit
Pikachu is classified as a standard fighter. He has 570 HP making him tied with his alternate form, Pikachu Libre and Sceptile for the fourth highest HP count. He along with Lucario is a very balanced fighter, decent options for every situation. Some players may find it harder to master Pikachu compared to Lucario due to the slightly more complex style of his attacks. Pikachu seems to use signature special moves from Heihachi Mishima, one of the Tekken main characters.
