In Season 10, Pikachu was put on trial by the Porygon family because of the Pokemon Episode 38 incident. His only defenders were Pichu and Serenity from Yu-Gi-Oh Abridged. However, Pichu stood up for Pikachu and later Pikachu was able to temporarily resolve his differences with the Porygons, only for them to humorously get arrested afterwards. Pikachu and Fox later battled Meta Knight after pursuing him, but are captured by a brainwashed Samus. Pikachu remained captured for the rest of Season 10. In Season 11, after Pichu was sent to the Shadow Realm, Pikachu began regaining his freedom and is freed prior to the final battle with Reiaz.

In Season 13, Pikachu is depressed following Pichu's "rebirth". Pikachu later battles against Pichu to bring his friend to his senses but is defeated despite having some of the Smash core's power. However, he learns that there is a greater evil manipulating Pichu and he tells Naruto that he must save Pichu from his inner darkness. Pikachu then dies from his wounds. Pikachu is revived at the end of Season 13. In Fight to the Finish, Pikachu is killed by Samus Aran after surviving her botched self-destruct. Pikachu is revived by Black-Star Shenron as Samus is about to be defeated. In Season 22, Pikachu is killed by the psychopathic Meta Knight. Pikachu is later revived in order to stop Samus.
