Pokédex Description

Generation 1
Red, Blue

Its long tail serves as a ground to protect itself from its own high voltage power.

Yellow

When electricity builds up inside its body, it becomes feisty. It also glows in the dark.

Generation 2
Gold

When its electricity builds, its muscles are stimulated, and it becomes more aggressive than usual.

Silver

If the electric pouches in its cheeks become fully charged, both ears will stand straight up.

Crystal

If its electric pouches run empty, it raises its tail to gather electricity from the atmosphere.

Generation 3
Ruby

If the electrical sacks become excessively charged, RAICHU plants its tail in the ground and discharges. Scorched patches of ground will be found near this POKéMON’s nest.

Sapphire

This POKéMON exudes a weak electrical charge from all over its body that makes it take on a slight glow in darkness. RAICHU searches for electricity by planting its tail in the ground.

Emerald

If it stores too much electricity, its behavior turns aggressive. To avoid this, it occasionally discharges excess energy and calms itself down.

FireRed

Its electric charges can reach even 100,000 volts. Careless contact can cause even an Indian elephant to faint.

LeafGreen

Its long tail serves as a ground to protect itself from its own high-voltage power.

It turns aggressive if it has too much electricity in its body. It discharges power through its tail.

Pearl

It can loose 100,000-volt bursts of electricity, instantly downing foes several times its size.

Platinum

HeartGold

When its electricity builds, its muscles are stimulated, and it becomes more aggressive than usual.

Alpha Sapphire

This Pokémon exudes a weak electrical charge from all over its body that makes it take on a slight glow in darkness. Raichu plants its tail in the ground to discharge electricity.

Generation 7
Moon

It becomes aggressive when it has electricity stored up. At such times, even its Trainer has to take care to avoid being attacked.
