Today, let’s learn how to draw Pikachu from Pokémon. Pikachu is cute and shoots lightning, what isn’t there to love about this cute yellow Pokémon?
Pikachu is one of the most recognizable and well-loved characters by kids and many adults who grew up with Pokémon. It’s not just because Pikachu is a cute yellow mouse with red cheeks. Pikachu is so popular because of his adorable personality. Who wouldn’t want to have a Pikachu as a pet?
Pikachu’s eyes are small, very simple, rounded and black. A lot of our drawings use this exact same style of eye, so we don’t need to change anything on Pikachu to make him look kawaii or fit with our art style.

Here’s a list of coloring supplies we recommend to use, however, feel free to use whatever you can find around the house!
- Pencil, Marker, Sharpie, Pen (Anything you can draw with!)
- Paper (We love marker paper but use anything you can find).
- Colored Markers (if you want to color the drawing).
Here are what we think are the best colored pencils, best gel pens and best markers for coloring.
- Your imagination (feel free to change colors or add things to the drawing!).
Otherwise, just pick whatever coloring tools you have around the house (crayons, markers, pencil crayons etc.) and just have some fun!
A Few Tips Before You Start Drawing
- Pikachu has long, skinny/thin ears. Try not to make them look too thick.
