PIKA1 + PIKA2:
Status: Still owned by Nintendo PIKA1 and PIKA2 are still owned by Nintendo at its headquarters in Washington State. They no longer use them, but are occasionally seen in the parking lot of the building.
Status: Original 1998 sent to Japan; 2000 replacement accounted for
Though the original PIKA3 that was in the PokePatrol was sent to Japan for Pokemon promotion, the replacement, a 2000 Beetle, was one of the more heavily used Pikabugs, used in Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parades, The Journey Across America Tour, and tons of other Pokemon events. It was used for several years until 2006, unlike the rest of the fleet, which the majority of the fleet was given away in several different contests between 1999-2001. It was sold at auction to a used car dealership that stripped it of ears, tail, and decals. One owner kept it until 2012, until it was traded back in and posted on ebay. PikaFreakRachel then bought it to restore back to a Pikabug.
Status: Unaccounted for
No information is known about PIKA4, as it is unaccounted for. It may have been one given away, or could have been stripped at auto auction.
PIKA5 was one of the Beetles that was sold at auction when Nintendo was done using it. It was purchased on eBay by collector Xris B. back in 2006.
Status: Unaccounted for Nothing is known about PIKA6. Can't even find any confirmed photos of PIKA6. May have been given away or auctioned off.

PIKA7 is a one of the only two manual transmissions in the fleet. It is also the only TDI (Diesel) engine of the fleet. It was given away in a contest promoting Pokemon the Third Movie sponsored by KidsWB and AOL in 2001. A family in Norfolk, Virginia won it and kept it until 2014. It was sold to another gentleman in Surry VA, until he sold it to collector mewisme700 in 2019. She is currently in the process of restoring it.
PIKA10 is the other manual transmission in the fleet besides PIKA7. It was given away in a contest by Nintendo at the E3 event in 2005. The winner, located in Colorado, immediately put it up for sale on eBay to which DJAwesome then purchased and has owned ever since. PIKA10 the most original of the accounted for Pikabugs- It still has it's TV gaming display, the original window decals displaying a collage of third gen Pokemon, as well as the original logo decal on the side. The tail, though original, has been rebuilt due to the wood degrading with time.
