Pika was given to Gabe from her parents. He is considered her starter Pokemon.
Pika likes to ride in his Poke Ball unlike Ash's Pikachu who hates it. He is one of the many Pokemon and Digimon targeted by the Digimon Emperor. The Digimon Emperor has tried to make Pika his slave many times, but Gabe won't let him.
