Characters in the manga The Electric Tale of Pikachu.

Ash Ketchum



  • Adaptation Dye-Job: Misty was originally depicted with black hair, then brown hair, before becoming a redhead like in the anime.
  • Age Lift: She's changed from ten to twelve.
  • Promoted to Love Interest: Her implied crush on Ash in the anime is made explicit.



  • Anime Hair: Jessie has gravity defying Rapunzel Hair.
  • Outlaw Couple: It's never mentioned when they became a couple, but Jessie and James do end up together in the end. They're also members of Team Rocket who Ash compares to Bonnie and Clyde.
  • Promoted to Love Interest: Her ambiguously romantic relationship with James is turned into an outright romance. They end the manga engaged and expecting.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: She has magenta hair.




  • Deadpan Snarker: Not as much as his anime counterpart, but he gets in a few digs at the world in general.
  • Luke, You Are My Father: Possibly. In this universe, Meowth and Meowzie (not named in this manga) apparently were an item for a while, but she dumped him after telling him that his ability to talk human was "freaky." In the third chapter of Electric Pikachu Boogaloo, Meowth encounters a kitten Meowth which he suspects is Meowzie's kid, which means he's the father. He panics and runs away before anything can be confirmed though.
  • Talking Animal: Meowth is a Pokémon who can talk.
