Pokemon 20th Anniversary Logo

The 20th Anniversary logo looks like this, and my friend and I had an argument over the identity of this mysterious pokemon. One of us said it is a pichu. The other said it is a pikachu. Which does it more closely resemble but specifically, which is it supposed to be?

    im not realy shure if you are serious or not, since Pikachu is "THE POKÉMON" it was in there from the beginning and plays a huge part through out the story of Pokémon. Also take note that in the picture are only starter pokemons (some missing) and in the middle is Pikatchu wich is "not a real starter pokemon".... so yes of course its pikatchu – GEnGEr Jan 13 '16 at 12:52
  • @GEnGEr Actually, Pikachu was the starter Pokemon in Pokemon Yellow. – nukeforum Jan 13 '16 at 12:53

    Pikachu is the Pokemon company Mascot and appears in every announcement and advertisement- I think anyone trying to convince you it's Pichu would be a hard sell... – Robotnik Jan 13 '16 at 12:54

    If you had difficulties identifying this Pokémon among the over 700 existing one, that would've been understandable, but come on... You could've easily found out beyond any shadow of a doubt if this is Pikachu or Pichu, simply by Googling for "Pikachu" and for "Pichu" and comparing the images. That's some serious lack of research effort right there. – Nolonar Jan 13 '16 at 13:47

    Also, there is a Pikachu dead center of its face which seems slightly larger than the rest... – Broots Waymb Jan 13 '16 at 18:32

Looking specifically at the ears, It's definately Pikachu and not Pichu

  • There's also the color: Pikachu is gold-yellow with bright red cheeks. Pichu is light yellow with pale pink cheeks. The logo is obviously dark/gold yellow and bright red, so it matches Pikachu more than Pichu. – Nolonar Jan 13 '16 at 13:49
  • Just a note: that Pichu is not a common Pichu, but the Spiky-eared Pichu :) – pinckerman Jan 13 '16 at 14:50
  • @pinckerman Maybe wasn't the best choice of example picture based on the point I was making ;) – Adam Lobo Jan 13 '16 at 15:08

This is definitely Pikachu. The ears are too narrow to be Pichu. The red in the cheeks are also much too dark to be Pichu.
