* IdiotBall: The ''only'' reason for [[spoiler: the BittersweetEnding]] happening is because of the fact that it never accrued to either Pikachu or Pichi [[spoiler: or ''even Misty'' when she finds out about them]] to just ''tell'' their trainers about each other [[spoiler: instead of being forced to go their separate ways at the end]] is a bit hard swallow. Given Ash's past track record, he would have been more than accepting of it [[spoiler: and likely would have been willing to have a few more traveling companions if it meant Pikachu would be happy,]] and from what we hear of Faith from Pichi she sounds nice enough and would probably understand as well. Sure, [[spoiler: it would of probably bought them the rest of the region together at ''most'']] but at least it's better than [[spoiler: being forced to split up after only three days of only just getting to really know each other, and likely never seeing each other again]]. Doesn't help that the only justification InUniverse give is because Pikachu [[NaughtyByNight is worried he'll be seen as prev should his trainer catch him]], a fact that in itself falls apart when [[spoiler: again, Misty finds out about it]].

* ArmorPiercingQuestion: Pichi asks Pikachu this when he is telling her about how Ash will always be a trainer. In response, she asks Pikachu if he wants to be a "sports" Pokemon all his life. Though it stuns Pikachu for a few seconds because he never really considered it, he eventaully decides to leave it up to the future. Though later on, he eventually starts asking this question to himself when he realizes Ash ''won't'' be young or a trainer forever...

Added DiffLines:

* CommonMarySueTraits: Pichi sports a few. Namely, having blue eyes (an unusual eye color for Pikachus, who usually only have black eyes), wearing a [[CurtainsMatchTheWindow sky blue bow]], having [[PinkGirlBlueBoy pink cheeks instead of red]], her voice being mentioned to sound like a new born babies, and [[spoiler: managing to beat Ursaring after it nearly ''killed'' Pikachu, granted though it was through indirect means.]] Considering [[{{Deconstruction}} the nature of this fic]] though, this might have been [[InvokedTrope intentional]].

''A Pikachu in Love'' is a rarity amoung Pokemon anime fanfics and canon/OC shipping fics in general, as instead of focusing on Ash and his current travelling companions, most of the focus is on Pikachu and just how strong of a bond his relationship with Ash is, as well dabbling into the FridgeHorror aspect about a Pokemon/Trainer bond about how one cannot be young or a trainer forever, and that eventually Ash will have to grown up and might want to develope a deeper relationship with someone, and leave Pikachu and his Pokemon trainer life style behind. Also, though the OC ''does'' possess some CommonMarySueTraits, this is negated by the fact that [[spoiler: [[{{Deconstruction}} a lot of them get picked a part over the course of the fic,]] showing exactly what kind of troubles a perky, carefree being who the protagonist falls for can cause. It also shows that in the end, despite how much two might love each other, the bonds of friendship can be just as strong...]] The result is a fanfic that stands out amoung the usual grain of shipping fics, and a rather refreshing read if read with an open mind.

Given the very nature of some of the tropes listed here, while the exact details are hidden, there are a hefty amount of spoilers on the trope page. You have been warned.



* [[spoiler: BearsAreBadNews: An Ursuring shows up in the latter chapters and nearly beats both Pikachu and Pichi to death. (Pikachu was too exhusted at the time from staying up all night to put up a good fight) Though, granted, they ''did'' crash into his den unannounced by accident... See NoHoldsBarredBeatDown below.]]
* [[spoiler: BitterSweetEnding: In the end, though Pikachu decided to stay with Ash, it's clear that he was deeply scarred by being forced to leave Pichi. Misty is quick to confort him though, saying that though he is a Pokemon; she, Ash, and Brock still love him like family and that if he's ever down, she wants him to remember just how much they all love him. There's also an implied chance that he might meet Pichi again someday.]]

Things have been going pretty well with Ash and co. as of late. While training for his next gym battle, Ash decides to let his team rest in a nearby forest for a few days after all the hard work they've done and the progress they made. Meanwhile, Pikachu begins to feel melancholic about his relationship with his trainer, and how he'll never have the same bond he has with Misty and Brock due to being a Pokemon and not being able to comunnicate with him. Feeling similar sense of alienation towards the other Pokemon who view him as somewhat of a 'teachers pet' due to being Ash's favorite, Pikachu's wishes he could have a deeper relationship with someone.

Later that night, his life takes a turn for the better when he catches a familar scent in the air and decides to investigate. He soon encounters Pichi, another Pikachu who is also traveling with a trainer as well. The two become fast friends, but little does Pikachu know that in the next following days, just how strong his bond really is with Ash will be put to it's ultimate test...

* GrowingUpSucks: Pikachu's view, at least in regards to Ash. Pikachu is terrified of the thought that one day, Ash will eventually leave behind his remnants of his younger years and likely go his seprate way from him.

Unfortunately, Pikachu wakes up a few seconds before they leave, and wonders why Ash didn't take him instead. This is what starts Pikachu really considering how strong of a bond he has with Ash.
