Tips on Pikachu's Mood: For Bad Mood, have Pikachu as the only Pokemon in the party, lose a battle, then talk to Pikachu immediately after blackout. For Good Mood, win a battle with Pikachu, then talk to it afterwards.

For Normal Mood, just talk to Pikachu if you haven't done any of the above. Or if you have, walk around a little bit, then talk to it.
