Raichu (Pokémon)

91 bytes added, 19 September
Origin
Raichu's legs and long tail are like those of a {{wp|jerboa}} or {{wp|kangaroo rat}}.
 
Alolan Raichu is likely based on the concept of {{DL|Pikachu variant|surfing Pikachu}} and the sport of {{wp|surfing}} itself, which originated in Hawaii, the inspiration for the [[Alola]] [[region]] from which Alolan Raichu originates. Its design appears to have been influenced by [[Puka]], a {{DL|Pikachu variants|surfing Pikachu}} that appeared in the {{pkmn|anime}}. In the [[Pokémon Stadium series]], Raichu rides on its tail when using the move {{m|Surf}}.
