This Raichu is an Electric-type Pokémon owned by the Pokémon Summer Academy. It was trained by Ash temporarily.


Raichu was chosen by Ash on his first day at the Summer Academy to take care of it for the next two days. Seeing Ash for the first time, Raichu dug a hole and hide himself there because he was afraid of Ash and also shy. When Ash became more close with Raichu, Raichu wasn't afraid of Ash anymore and listened to his orders. He then battled against Angie and her Monferno at the end of the event. After the event was over, Ash returned Raichu to the Summer Academy.
