Is Ash's Pikachu male or female?
I think it's male, but I was wondering if there is an official position about it.
>no heart tail
it even "crossdresses" by taping a heart on its tail
It's a female, unfortunately in the original pokemon before all the spin offs like johto and such they had not added added the whole female having a different tail thing.
So the series doesn't make much sense in that way but everything after the original 151 pokemon is just a spin off series anyway.
Wrong. Ash's Pikachu is male, as confirmed by Togepi's Attract in DP142 affecting him. We could confirm this because Meowth, who has been confirmed male since the start of the series, was also affected by it, but Jessie's Yanmega, a female, was not.
Pomf, can you go fuck yourself you gay autist? Hawlucha is clearly a Male but you don't want to confirm it as one because "Attract wasn't used on him". That pretty retarded dude.
This was meant for Pomf, not to OP.
Pikachu's been confirmed as a male three times.
1. Dawn's Buneary had a crush on him.
2. Evil Togepi's Attract worked on him, Piplup, Croagunk, and Meowth. Since Meowth is a male, this means that the Togepi is female, and that the other three are also male.
3. In a BW episode, Pikachu was disguised as a female by putting a piece of paper on his tail.

I always thought that could be going on!
No but like, in episodes with tons of pikachus they were all male
Pikachu a dude
In all fairness that was before they had distinct genders
Gender differences such as heart-tail were actually introduced in Gen 4. His Pikachu is still male though, but just saying the tail doesn't prove much.
It's had Attract used on it, and even once when Pikachu and Piplup got unnaturally attracted Brock commented how something's wrong because they're both male.
Ash's Pikachu is the series mascot. If there was any contention about its gender, they wouldn't add the female tail in the first place. If anything they did it to confirm that it's male.
>watching a dubbed anime subbed
Do you complain about video games not always having dual audio?
I'm a dubfag and I can agree with you there, actually, most dub musical numbers are shit compared to subbed ones. In Pokémon's case I'm not sure if it would affect me enough to watch the subbed; doesn't the sub even use Jap names for Pokémon instead of their English ones?
Not him by the way, I stopped watching the Ashnime years and years ago when I realized as a kid he was just repeating the same cycle over and over and he'd never actually win.
The 4kids dub kept a lot of the OST. The new dub replaces 95% of it.
>The 4kids dub kept a lot of the OST. The new dub replaces 95% of it
Well that would explain why people are so abhorrent, I stopped watching shortly after 4kids got booted, I think I watched the Frontier season and a bit of Sinnoh before dropping it for a while, then checked out the Sinnoh League when it got there, then watched the first episodes of Unova and never went back.
I also noticed, even as a kid, that the quality of English openings sunk like a stone as soon as 4kids got canned. (I didn't specifically know the dub studios changed, but I did notice every single character having a different voice at about the same time said opening quality sank.)
I still can't stand female Jap VAs, though, they hurt my ears. If I watched the Ashnime again it'd be a toss-up on whether I'd watch dub or sub.
They did that in the first 3 movies but I would say they did a good job for them.
You're just being a drama queen, none of them are higher pitched than Lisa Simpson. Yes Jap dubs have more yelling to match the intensity of the visuals, but at least they're actually trying to inflect instead of phoning it in.
