I am proud to present to you the Pikachu programming language. It is a language designed specifically to be usable by Pikachus.

#### Motivation and Objective

In today’s job market, most Pikachus are forced to live a life of obedience and servitude to cruel Pokemon trainers. They are regularly forced to fight other Pokemon for sport, often in front of large audiences. Clearly this is unethical and a gross violation of Pikachu rights.

I firmly believe that to successfully end this inpikachu practice, we first need to provide Pikachus around the world with suitable alternative career options. And the Pikachu programming language intends to do just that.

Today, there are innumerable human programmers around the world. IT industries are recruiting millions and millions of human beings. One of the things that’s enabling this is that all programming languages out there today are designed in human language, and tailored towards human beings.

Well, not anymore!

#### Design Principles

- The language should be easily usable by Pikachus. Programs should be readable and writable by any Pikachu.
- The language should utilise only elements of Pikachu language. This is actually a very good thing since human language is often messy and complicated. But since the Pikachu programming language is based on the language of the Pikachus, it can make do with only the following three syntax elements :
`pi`

,`pika`

,`pikachu`

- Coding in Pikachu should be easy if you’re a Pikachu. However, if you’re a human being and write a bunch of programs in Pikachu, your ability to speak/read/write in the language of Pikachus should improve significantly.

As of now, Trove 42 is the official home of Pikachu. Following the Pikachu revolution in the global IT industry, I might consider moving to a dedicated domain.

You can find all the syntax rules for Pikachu here. You can write and execute your own Pikachu programs using the editor here.

#### Sample Programs:

- A program that prints “HELLO WORLD”
