Just to add some clarity to these two terms, sorry if you already know.

First, there is no such thing as a push request, there are only pull
requests.

A pull request is not the same as the command "git pull", they're similar
in concept but different in the context of GitHub.

A "Pull Request" is a GitHub term that is used to notify the owner of a
repository that you have forked that you would like them to review a
commit(s) that you have done, comment on them if changes are required, and
if not required then please 'git fetch' these changes and 'git merge' them
into the main repository that the fork was forked from. GitHub makes the
process of fetching and merging easier by providing a "Pull" button.
