It turns out the Meowth isn"t the only one that can understand Pikachu. Ash"s Pikachu in the Poketháng anime series may only be able khổng lồ say his own name, but it turns out it"s possible lớn actually translate what Pikachu is saying.

Like every other Poketháng (except Mewtwo and the aforementioned Meowth), Pikachu can only say different forms of his name. Pi, ka, và chu are the only words Pikachu can say, and he often mixes & matches those words together khổng lồ create chất lượng phrases. According khổng lồ Bulbapedia, there are enough common ways that Pikachu uses Pikapi, Pika-Pika, and PikakaPika that we can actually work out a rough translation of what Pikachu is trying to say.

Pikachu only has a couple of phrases, such as, "Pika," which means wait, or, "Pi-kaPika," which means sayōnara or goodbye. Most of what Pikachu is saying are just ways to lớn address other characters & Poketháng. When Pikachu says, "Pikapi," he"s talking khổng lồ or referring lớn Ash. Ash"s name is Satoshi in Japanese, so Pikapi is the closest sounding word that Pikachu is able to say.

Here is the full menu of words that Pikachu can say, according to lớn Bulbapedia:

Pikapi: Satoshi (Ash) Pi-Kachu: Pochama (Piplup) Pikachu-Pi: Kasumày (Misty) Pika-Chu: Takeshi (Brock), Kibago (Axew) Pikaka: Hikari (Dawn) PiPiPi: Togepy (Togepi) PikakaPika: Fushigidane (Bulbasaur) PiPi-kachu: Rocket-dan (Team Rocket) Pi-Pikachu: Get da ze! (He says this after Ash wins a Badge, catches a new Pokétháng or anything similar.) Pika-Pikachu: When referring khổng lồ or introducing himself. Chaa: Anything he says happily or excitedly, or when yawning. Pika!: "Matte!", or saying "Wait!" Pi-kaPika: "Sayōnara," or saying "Good-bye."

Obviously, very few of these really sound lượt thích the word Pikachu is trying to say. However, we can be reasonably sure that when Pikachu says, "PiPi-kachu," he is talking about Team Rocket simply because it"s always something Pikachu says when Team Rocket is around.

Pikachu"s language is known as PikaSpeak. In the 2009 episode titled. "Stealing The Conversation!", Team Rocket coins the term PikaSpeak. It hasn"t been used in any official way since then, but the name stuck anyway.

On Reddit, u/Balloon_911 pointed out that understanding PikaSpeak gives an iconic scene from the 2017 reboot Poketháng the Movie: I Choose You! an even deeper meaning. When Pikachu emerges from his Pokeball & discovers that Ash has been killed, it buries its face on his hat and cries out ash"s name: "PIKAPI!"

It"s possible that other Pokemon can be translated similarly, but none have had nearly as much screen time as Pikachu, so it would be a difficult thing lớn confirm. The Poketháng anime series is now in its twenty-third season, và it looks like it will be the last one for Ash and Pikachu. Ash has just assembled his dream team and is preparing khổng lồ take on Leon, the official champion of the Galar region. There are still new movies to look forward khổng lồ starring Ash và Pikachu though, including the upcoming Poketháng The Movie: Secrets of the Jungle.
