Raichu is my number one favorite Pokemon! I also have a plushy of him (to me, Raichu is a ‘he’). Although it isn’t easy to say, as I also really, really like Pikachu, Vaporeon and Suicune. Then again, what about Nidoran (M/F) and Mew? There are just too many kawaii and cool Pokemon out there!
But yeah, if I must choose, I choose you – Raichu!
While drawing this Pokemon fanart of Raichu, I also made a bunch of saves of my work in progress. I then added them all together and made a little progress video out of it. Please see below!
Who is Raichu?
Raichu is an electric-type Pokémon, the evolved form of Pikachu, and a member of the iconic Pikachu evolution line. Recognizable by its yellow fur, pointy ears, and the lightning bolt-shaped tail, Raichu packs a serious electrical punch. When exposed to a Thunder Stone, Pikachu can evolve into Raichu.
One notable encounter occurred in the Pokémon anime series when Pikachu faced Lt. Surge’s Raichu. Pikachu initially struggled against the more evolved and powerful Raichu but eventually overcame the odds. Pikachu refused to evolve into Raichu to gain advantage. Instead, Pikachu chose to confront Raichu head-on and eventually won the battle through determination and strategy. This battle became a defining moment in Pikachu’s journey, highlighting the significance of personal growth and unique strengths in Pokémon battles.
