Original Japanese name: Raichuu
Evolution: Evolves from Pikachu
Raichu exudes a weak electrical charge from all over its body that makes it take on a slight glow in darkness. Its electric charges can reach even 100,000 volts, instantly downing foes several times its size. Careless contact can cause even a Dragonite to faint. When its electricity builds, its muscles are stimulated, and it becomes more aggressive and feistier than usual. To avoid this, it occasionally discharges excess energy and calms itself down. If the electric pouches in its cheeks become fully charged, both ears will stand straight up. It discharges electricity from its tail, so it is not harmed by its own power. The long tail serves as a ground to protect itself from its own high voltage power. As a result, scorched patches of ground will be found near this pokemon's nest. If its electric pouches run empty, it raises its tail to gather electricity from the atmosphere.
