Pikachu is not a goddamn mouse, and i don't care what the games tell me. It's some kind of small bear or marsupial perhaps, possibly a raccoon of some type, but it is Extremely Not a Mouse


The crux of my argument hinges on Raticate, who has nearly the same body shape of Pikachu, but actually has distinctive traits of rodents that Pikachu lacks entirely.

*me, manic, frenzy-eyed*

True though that may be, that is NOT what is being litigated here!

*I slam my desk and knock over a coffee mug, which shatters in a metaphor for my mental state. This legal case has taken its toll on me.*

@swiff alternative theory:

pikachu is still in rodentia, just in en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chinchil , which is why pikachu looks so radically different from a rat-like pokemon

still technically in rodentia but hella far away from a mouse. much closer evolutionary to chinchillas and viscachas
