Thanks guys, spent a lot of time on it (11 hours +) trying to get it to look right. Took it into photoshop and did a quick paint job on it
Have it close to finished now, just need better UV mapping around the ears and on the tail and a texture on the eye:

Ah, wow! Now he really looks authentic! Got any plans for him? Animation- or render-wise?

i created this in anim8or for a tech project actually, since I don't yet feel I can manipulate Maya well enough. Once we get onto the Maya module though, i'd like to rig Pikachu in that and animate it. I don't think I could rig this in anim8or well enough. I think modeling is WAY simpler in anim8or, but bigger programs will give me a more realistic animation once I figure out how they work.
