Raichu are a species of murid from the Pokémon world. They evolve from Pikachu that have been given thunder stones.


It is an electric-type Pokémon with curly ears, a long tail, and orange fur.


Like all Pokémon, Raichu lay eggs, despite being rodents. They also belong to the fairy and field egg groups, meaning they can only mate with other Pokémon within those groups, if not their own species.
