How is Pikachu a concept?

He's a character, a pokemon is a concept.

He's technically a species. As I recall, that was a point of contention earlier on.

He's both. The one that belongs to Ash is the character. If you looked, you'd see there's also a Pikachu character in the database.

I did see that, as so I was curious as to why he was also listed as a concept. It remains bizarre to me, but I appreciate the clarification by atejas.

For now every thing that is not an individual we put under concept since we do net yet have something like a  "race" tag.
