The Pokémon franchise has been popular among children, teenagers, and even adults for over two decades, beginning with the release of the first Pokémon video game in 1996, and the television series in 1997. Today, with new technologies such as the Pokémon Go! app for tablets and smartphones, the characters have retained their immense popularity.
Pikachu is perhaps everyone’s favorite character. Pikachu is an electric mouse Pokémon, capable of blasting lighting from his cheeks. He, along with his trainer, Ash Ketchum, is the star of the movies and television show.
Would you like to draw your very own Pikachu? Now you can, using this easy, step-by-step drawing tutorial.
All you will need is paper and a writing implement, such as a pencil, pen, or marker. You may also want to gather crayons, colored pencils, or markers to color your finished drawing.
Each step in the drawing guide is accompanied by an illustration. The new marks in each step are highlighted in blue. Draw your lines lightly at first, as you will need to erase some of your original lines as you complete your sketch.

Step-by-Step Instructions for Drawing a Pikachu
Draw Pikachu’s arms. For the left arm, draw an oval overlapping both the body and head. For the right arm, draw a curved line extending from the head to the middle of the body.
Draw Pikachu’s left ear tilted to the side. The ear will consist of two curved lines, extending up and to the left, from the left side of the head. The ear will end in a point.
To form the tail, draw a zigzag pattern consisting of five lines. The lines nearer the body will be shorter, increasing in length as they near the end of the tail.
Add some more detail to your drawing. Draw a smaller circle at the top of each eye to form the pupil. For the nose, place a dot above the center of the “W.” Form a tongue inside the mouth using a slightly curved line. Add a horizontal zigzag pattern to the base of the tail.
