'''Raichu''' (Japanese: '''ライチュウ''' ''Raichuu'') is an {{type|Electric}}-[[Types|type]] [[Pokémon (species)|Pokémon]] introduced in [[Generation I]].
 
 
It is a member of the [[Pikachu-family Pokémon]].
 
 
==Appearance==
 
Raichu is a rodent-like [[Pokémon]], sort of similar to its previous forms. Unlike [[Pichu]] or [[Pikachu]], which both have yellow fur, Raichu has an orange-brown fur. It's has long ears, feet, but stubby arms with no fingers. Additionally, its electrical sacs are yellow, unlike its previous form's red coloring.It has a white belly, the tips of its arms and toes are brown. The soles of its feet are tan-colored and the paw pads on the undersides are yellowish orange. Raichu also have a long, thin, black tail that ends in a large lightning bolt shape. Male Raichu have larger "lightning bolt tails" than females. They are also bigger than their previous evolved forms.
 
 
==Special abilities==
 
Raichu has the ability [[Static]] and the hidden ability [[Lightningrod]]. Static allows Raichu to paralyze its foe when making a physical move. Lightningrod allows Raichu to draw in all {{Type|Electric}}-type attacks.
 
 
==In the anime==
 
[[File:ElectricShockShowdown.gif|thumb|left|Lt. Surge's Raichu against Ash's Pikachu.]]
 
{{main|Lt. Surge's Raichu}}
 
Raichu made its debut appearance in the episode ''[[IL014: Electric Shock Showdown|Electric Shock Showdown]]'', under the ownership of [[Lt. Surge]], the [[Gym Leader]] in [[Vermilion City]]. In this episode [[Ash's Pikachu]] is defeated in a one-on-one battle with [[Lt. Surge's Raichu]], which then leads to Surge commenting on how [[Ash Ketchum|Ash]] could never defeat his Raichu because his [[Pikachu]] was too weak.
 
 
Ash and [[Pikachu]] both, refusing to go through with evolving [[Pikachu]] in order to increase its power, face off against Lt. Surge again, this time using speed rather than power. By tiring Raichu out, Pikachu defeats Raichu and wins the battle.
 
 
Another Raichu, under the ownership of a trainer named [[Sho]], was seen in ''[[DP074: Pika and Goliath!|Pika and Goliath!]]''. [[Sho|Sho's Raichu]] used [[Hyper Beam]] at point blank range on Ash's Pikachu causing it to be in critical condition. This episode was very similar to the previously mentioned ''Electric Shock Showdown'' episode.
 
 
Another Raichu, named "Sugar" was seen under the ownership of an elderly woman named [[Abigail]] in the episode ''[[DP024: Cooking Up A Sweet Story!|Cooking up a Sweet Story]]''.
 
 
In the first episode of the Summer Camp for Pokemon episodes, Ash was given a Raichu to train and battle who was shy but warmed up to Ash but Ash had to return it after the battle.[[File:Pikachu_using_Aglity.png|thumb|Ash's Pikachu versus Lt. Surge's Raichu.]]
 
 
==Evolution==
 
'''Raichu''' is the [[Evolution|evolved]] form of [[Pikachu]], and the final evolutionary form of [[Pichu]]. [[Pikachu]] can evolve into Raichu by the use of a [[Evolution Stones#Thunder Stone|Thunder Stone]].

==Origins==
 
[[File:Raichu.jpg|thumb|Raichu in the anime]]The name '''Raichu''' originates from the Japanese word '''rai''', which means "[[thunder]]," and "chuu," a word referring to the squeak made by a mouse. Its name is also very similar to the Raiju, a lighting creature from Japanese mythology.
 
 
==Trivia==
 
*Pokédex entries say that Raichu can discharge up to 100,000 volts. The [[Pokémon Stadium]] entry says that it can only do 10,000 however.
 
*In ''[[PokéPark 2: Wonders Beyond]]'', Raichu appears in the Cove Town as one of the trainers. After Pikachu defeats him in battle, he becomes Pikachu's teacher.
