Pika Girl (Japanese: 私のピカチュウ友 My Pikachu Friend) is an action/adventure anime based off of the Pokémon series, but with a twist. This show takes place away from the normal Pokémon series in it's own universe It revolves around trainers of the Kizoka region, mainly a boy named Kaito, who's Pokémon have mysteriously changed into humans after a genesis wave that passed over the entire region. However, these Pokémon still have their powers, and battle in a new way no one has ever imagined.
The region of Kizoka; a place of wonders and mysterious. A place where trainers and their Pokémon go out for amazing adventures, have battles every turn, and overall have a good time. However, one day, an unknown legendary has appeared in the region that no one ever knew about, casting off a genesis wave throughout the entire region. At first, people didn't worry, but that was until they realized that their Pokémon had become humans!
The story mostly takes place around Kaito, a 16-year old trainer of the Sutek region, who has been living there for many years. The genesis wave was a surprising turn in Kaito's life, as he is now able to communicate with his Pokémon in a way he wasn't able to before. He takes most interest in Pikachu, a female pikachu that he'd caught when he was little and has had her ever since. The two of them go on a journey to figure out why this happened and how to make things go back to normal. When they find out the solution is unknown, Pikachu is glad as a human and sets out to act like one, even though she is still required to train and use her powers.
