Pikablu was an insanely popular and well-known Pokegod that circulated the internet before the release of the short 'Pikachu's Summer Vacation', where it was revealed that Pikablu, (Marill) was just a normal pokemon.


Pikablu, also known by the names Pikablue, Ketoblu, blue Mouse and Metablue, is commonly known as the second-most popular PokéGod. It was commonly passed off as an Electric- and Water-type evolution of Pikachu or Raichu, depending on the source. Pikablu soon became a separate Pokémon from Pikachu and Raichu, dropping its Electric typing that connected it to them. Its official Japanese name w as ignored by Americans in favor of the name Pikablu, based off of Pikachu and blue. It was soon deemed a PokéGod because, due to a mistake , a man on Cinnabar Island says that his Raichu evolved, which was thought to be a hint to Pikablu. When 'Pikablu' (Marill) was shown in Pikachu's Summer Vacation, it suddenly lost all its popularity because it was not rare nor powerful. This also diminished many other PokeGod's quality as well.
