Production Cels/ ライチュウ セル画
from Ep. 14 "Electric Shock Showdown"/ 第
So........ how much better can it get than this?
I owned stacks of sketches from this episode already, and to be
honest, I thought that would be as good as it got, and I was happy and
content to own the sketches only -- works of hand-drawn art by the
animators, and BASICALLY exactly what hundreds of thousands of people
around the world have seen in this episode. Yet... not EXACTLY what you
see on your screen. Those are the hand painted animation cels.
To be honest, I never ever thought I'd find Raichu. Most Pokemon cels
are destroyed or kept private by the studio, and unless you're after
characters who appear in every episode (Pikachu and Ash, Team Rocket,
etc), you'll have an extremely difficult time finding a specific
character or Pokemon. In fact, since August of 2002, Pokemon has been
all digital, ceasing hand painted cel production entirely, and making
sketches even more scarce.
Under these circumstances, to be able to own these gorgeous cels of a
character, Lt. Surge, who only appeared in one episode, and a Pokemon
who appears rarely in the anime, is a dream come true. They are famous
scenes, iconic images from the episode that made me love Pokemon, made
want to study Japanese, made me want to collect Raichu, and changed my
entire life in more ways than I could possibly write on this website.
To own these real pieces of it - the originals artwork from scenes that
have been viewed by people all over the world, a classic episode -
rather leaves me feeling speechless, to be honest.
click here to see more
details about these cels, these most precious items in my collection!
I got these long before my dream cels, and thought to myself, has my
day as a true Raichu collector almost come? These are one of a kind,
actual layout sketches from Electric Shock
Showdown, Episode 14 of the Pokemon anime, Raichu's first animated
appearance, and four from Diamond and Pearl anime. They are not CELS,
but they are the pencil drawings done by
the animators. These sketches are they taken over by inkers and
painters to created the colored cels (or digital art) you actually see
I am the only person in the world with these EXACT pencil drawings, and
absolutely had the best luck to even get my paws on them. They cost a
nice bit, but it is worth it. I am happy and honored to share with the
world these treasures, more glimpses into the world of the animators
who make a show we've probably all loved at some point in our lives!

cel sketch in detail -- including ANIMATIONS!

Inflatable Raichu (Inflateachu)
Festival Prize (?)
The first in a wonderful few months of incredibly amazing Raichus! I
spotted this dude on auction, but he was due to end right when I would
be over the Pacific, in a plane heading back to America for 3 weeks.
CRAP! I set up a few people to bid for me if my high bid was outbid (at
the moment I am not paying Yahoo!Japan so I have a high bid limit). I
landed, got home and checked - I WON HIM! Look how cute he is! An
ultra-rare inflateachu - and he is huge, as well! Around a foot tall -
if he were a plush he'd be one of the bigger Raichu plushies there is,
that is how big he
compared to everyone else.
me. I love you, baby!
finding a Pikachu of this same series, I found out this fellow might
have been a prize at various festivals in Japan in the late nineties.
Nowadays there are still Pokemon masks and prizes given out at
festivals, so this is very possibly where he came from!
Gym Badge Series (Vermillion
ジムバッジコレクション コンプリートセット 赤緑・Gym Badge Collection Complete Set Red/Blue
Other Japanese Thunder
of these items are official Japanese Thunder Badges and rather hard to
round badges on the very bottom are from a set that included every
Kanto, Johto and Hoenn GL, the Kanto leaders getting two each (one set
from FRLG). They were TCG
League prizes one had to both earn and then mail in to get. Probably
most of the Japanese badges had to be aquired this way. The one
at the very top looks
to be the same as the badge in the Badge Series set, but it was
actually seperate, and is silver
with a different backing. Then there is the replica
Thunder Badge sold with a Gym Leader VHS and extremely gorgeous and
rare - the perfect badge! The full set can be seen below
with my VHS's.
Last is probably the oldest
thunder badge ever, with the set
having designs from original R/B, some obviously not even knowing
proper coloring yet!
USA Thunder Badges
The thunder badges on the left and right corners of
the plastic are the American TCG Indigo League Thunder Badges! The
first was the rectangular one given out in 2000, and the rounder one
was handed out in 2006. Yay!!!
The Lt. Surge postcard is the American POP scorecard. On the keychain
is the extremely rare Pokemon
Championship 2000 badge - made of hard solid metal and maybe the
last badge I needed for my collection!
Random Thunder Badges

full Kanto set).

Raichu Johto Dex/National Dex Metal Charms
These are the cutest out of all hundreds of Pokedex Metal Charms!
The original Raichu (with one paw up) is of course from the

of 11/21/2009... never forget 11/21/2009!! The staff was unprepared for
the hoardes of people rushing inside when the doors opened, kicking and
punching as they fought to reach the coveted tiny pieces of metal. Did
they all want Raichu? I am not sure, but if they did not, I'm sure they
regretted it later. Raichu forgives them.
When it was time again to release charms, this time all 646 Pokemon in
the National Dex as of 12/2011, the staff were prepared, the masses of
humanity kept in control, and one could easily pluck a sweet Raichu set
of charms off the rack for themselves. Which is just what I did... and
now here they are for you to see. Do not miss their Lion brethren... and can you

PIKACHU ＋ グッズその他
PIKACHU ＋ Other Goods Collection
was mid-July 2013 when we first got word that RAICHU and PICHU would be
added into the I LOVE PIKACHU line of Banpresto plush and other goods.
The new line would be called I LOVE PIKACHU +, and it was JUSTICE! When
the I LOVE EEVEE line of toys included not only Eevee but all of its
evolutions, Raichu fans gave a little sigh, but we are used to such
things. YET TRUTH
AND JUSTICE PREVAILED.
Huge fatness and all, Raichu was put into the I LOVE PIKACHU line due
to an "overwhelming demand by fans"! Now THAT is the ultimate proof of
Raichu's amazing perfection! Not because "Why not?", or "We did it with
Eevees, so" or "We need a new idea", it was plain and simple THE PUBLIC DEMANDED THEIR RAICHUS AND THE
PUBLIC GOT THEIR DAMN RAICHUS.

Raichu Pocket Monsters Rubber
This stamp is in fact so rare, that I could not find it once in nearly
10 years of Raichu collecting. This series featured possibly all of the
original 151 Pokemon, but they are so hard to find now nobody can
confirm it! I finally got this baby when my friend Ridi found them
covered in a layer of dust ten years thick in a random little toy shop
in Kyushu (Southern Japan). WOW!!! Good friend - good stamps - amazing
find!! I nearly cried I was so happy! What an amazing addition to the

First, from Japan 1996, is... "Raichu on a postal stamp" pin! It also

very orange angry Raichu
pin, very golden angry Raichu pin, Raichu/Pikachu stuck together pin,
and those two with the gold foil
backing are from Korea! How cool :D
The round Pokemon 2000 Collector's pin is from a set that did indeed
include all 151 original Pokemon! Raichu was tough to find, but here is
is with me forever, muwaha!
As a side note, the golden angry leaping Raichu pin is possibly the
rarest I own. For years a similar bootleg
was floating around the internet and Ebay, but it was only ever a
bootleg made from some existing art and we assumed there was no
original pin. Well, tada! This is the real deal, and boy is it lovely!

is the oldest example of Raichu being prominently featured on many

have never been able to find a more complete set of images for this
promo, not even a list, and the internet archives can only produce for
me the fact that Ichi Ni Pika Pi! art was used on the old Pokemon

Up until now (2011) Raichu has only appeared in one feature film --
Movie 2, Revelation Lugia, shown in the foreground on a boat, unable to
go any further with the other Pokemon, while flying and water types
flew or swam towards the ocean. Somehow that tiny cameo led him to be
in the stamp rally! Not only is this a big honor, but this booklet is
extremely rare, but thanks to a friend who was a young boy in 1999
who's parents were cool enough to take him from station to station, I
can record this bit of the past for this site. Don't miss the blue

How adorable!! These are fairly random and hard to track directly, but

the rat, you know! The matching postcard was sold only at Pokemon
Centers that holiday season. During the previous year of the rat,
entire Pokemon Generations earlier! These little red striped envelopes were also made, for children to receive money in. How time
As for Christmas, here is a rare Raichu Christmas card, with original
Pokemon Center artwork, EEE so adorables!!! I just love it!! The same
art is on that Christmas box, which originally was sold with more
Christmas goods inside. Moving
right along with more original art (PS: almost all of this art is
completely unique to these holiday items!), is the extremely amazing Christmas Plate and
matching gift bag, from Pokemon Center 2005.
Plus the unbelievably cool Stationary Set
- mint in its own wrap! Featuring a wide array of popular Pokemon,
these items are highly sought
after, and I am very pleased to have them! I believe they are some of
the only items featuring that artwork.
Finally is the tiny Halloween Candy Box with Raichu!! It was a lucky
little find, but counts all the same to me! You rock, Raichu!!
Raichu "We Stick" Magnets+Other Magnets
Thanks for always holding
up my ferret's vet notices!
I've got a generic Asian magnet, and two "We Stick" magnets
from Japan. The big chunky one is from America, and the smaller black
rubbery one is from Europe! Theflat orange, and red and green sparkly
holo flat magnets
are the official
America/Europe "Staks" Magnets! YAY!!!
The flat one with its arms in the air is from a magnet book! You can
see more on the lions page.
New addition is the orange square one - the retsuden magnet from Ensky,
just come out in October 2009. So cute!
Pokemon Center/Battrio Machines
These are Battrio Pucks, for the popular
"arcade-ish" game Pokemon Battrio. You put your puck on the board of
the game and your Pokemon team (three at once) appears digitally on the
screen. Fun times!
I don't play the game, but I REALLY like
the art on the discs. The lions got QUITE a few before Raichu ever even
got one - then he did, and there was MUCH rejoicing!! Then wouldn't you
know it? A second (on the grey Pokeball) - and it is a promotional puck
too, not available for regular sale!
This art is unique ONLY to Battrio pucks, and it's some of the cutest
Raichu art around!
Coins (click for a bigger photo!)
know what these are used for... but here they are. Raichu coins! Should
be the world's currency if you ask me. They are mostly metal, with a
couple that are actually thick plastic. They are not cardboard pogs!
星形コイン/ Star Shaped
TCG Coin (comes with Lt. Surge deck)
ミニスビー/ Mini "Subi"
Generation Trading Coin (2)
The green and blue gem coins color depending on
tempature - see right!
Pokemon "Battling Coin Game"
Rare Raichu Bottle Cap Coin
Raichu Bulgarian Cheetos Coin
Coins" Set 2/Lucario Movie Set (Set of 4)
This is a set of four differently colored
Raichu coins, that came blind packaged with two per pack! There was
also a keychain in each pack of two, so you could string them together
for whatever purpose. Each coin came in four colors; silver, gold,
bronze and full-color silver. Here is a complete set of Raichus, after
many years of trying!
What's interesting is this set was made for the Lucario Movie, with Lucario Movie packaging and most
of the Pokemon in the set being from the Lucario movie, like Mew,
Lucario, Sudowoodo, Weaville, Mime Jr, etc. Why Raichu? Or as Raichu
would say, rai Raichu?? Well, because he is Pikachu's evolution, and
Pikachu got a coin, so that's just logic, folks.
Lucario's coin has Aaron's staff on the other side instead of Riolu.
Because Riolu was not a thing yet, hoho!
(Pikachu and Raichu)
There is aso a
bigger version of the small calendar!
Raichu/Pikachu Character Photo Filter
Here is the entire camera set this frame is a
part of! You can put this frame inside the real-working camera and the
image will appear on any photographs you take, an automatic "frame
decoration" if you will. The whole set is called "Chara Photo" and it's

These are "hot plates" toys you make by melting plastic inside those
premade frames. So torn on whether I should or not... but... MINT IN
PACKAGE!! But so cute... this photo shows how they turn out though!
Other Raichu Pencils, Pens, Mechanical
Pencils, Pencil cases, and a Crayon.
Lots of Places
Well, I have some Raichu pencils - or pencils
starring Raichu - and here they
is! Dunno what else to say other than - they's Raichu pencils! The
ン" (with Raichu
on blue) is the one that came in that
Raichu packaging. The metal pencil case is the only one I know of which
features Raichu, and it was a Banpresto UFO Catcher prize! So cool!
There is also the plastic case that has all the electrics but - hey, it
And NOW! With big fat Raichu pen! From Europe! Amazering! ALSO! The
official RoseArt Raichu crayon! For the record, the color is "Golden
Raichu". Raichu is certainly golden in my book! The blue and white
thing with four electrics is actually a mechanical pencil by Tomy. Who
We also now add a mint in package Stamp Pencil Toppers pencil with a
rolly stamp on the top, also with Raichu. Of course it has Raichu or it
wouldn't be in this gallery.
Chu Socks for the Stylish
A Korean pair,
and some new pairs from the Pokemon Centers in Japan, with art from PokeToru!
Chu Boxers for the Super Stylish
So.... these are Raichu boxer shorts. They are completely amazing, you
They are very hard to find now, and luckily my pair has never been
worn. They took me years to find. ... ... ... they were very expensive.
I don't know what to think about that fact. XD
NEW ADDITION: Electric Boxer Shorts (seen to the right). Now Raichu
boxers are not so lonely at the bottom rung of the merch ladder.
These lovely puzzles are actually some of the rarer Raichu thingies I
have! The circular one is from a magazine published many years ago. The
rectangular one (with matching box) is an
American Hasbro puzzle from 1999.
The gigantic foam puzzle piece on the right is a foot tall and designed
to be placed togeher with similar pieces to form a mat. Raichu's
happier with his electric buddies by themselves, no doubt.
This is also a plastic
Raichu puzzle piece. Somewhere out there is
a plastic puzzle missing the coolest Pokemon ever :( Too bad! Mine now
I'm curious to see what other Raichu-central puzzles there might have
been! You can see another puzzle with Raichu below in my holiday

Plastic Game Collectibles
These are all
items from America and Europe that are plastic, come in a
billion colors (no, I'm not gonnna try to get them all, I'm fine with
just the PRETTIEST colors! :D) and can be used in some form of a
game... maybe. Well, I have no idea!
Raichu (Holo) Wap
ンジャン 牌 (金銀,
Raichu "Ponjyan" Tabs! (From GS, Mini GS,
These are from the "Ponjyan" game, a game similar to Chinese Mahjong,
but a little more simplified for kids (I think). Pokemon has had over
five of these games released! Raichu has been in at least four of them,
and I have three of his tabs here! Each are thick plastic with the
image printed on, not cheap stickers. The games are very hard to
get and expensive now.
I hope this set is complete... but who really ever knows with such old
Chu Watches for the Stylish
Raichu/Pikachu/Pichu "Digi-Chara Watch"
Featuring an adorable Raichu covering most of the strap. AWESOME.
Usually Raichu gets left out of these sorts of situations... so,
AWESOME. Nice electric design too!
Well this is clearly a Pikachu watch... so why is it here? Because it
is the only instance of Pokemon where Ash's Pikachu evolves, and
features two different parts about Raichu! First Ash calls "Raichu!
Thunderstone!" followed by flashing pictures of Raichu and Pikachu
screaming PIKACHUUUUUUU (shows how much the people who make Pokemon
goods in other countries actually know about Pokemon). Next, Ash says
"It's becoming Raichu!" and Pikachu
flashes and evolves into Raichu.
Check out this awesome 3D Raichu
on the watch! Also its original
packaging. This was a UFO Catcher prize!
are from the
late 90's, and one from 2017, but I am not sure exactly when. Some have the American
logo on the back and some have it on the front. The one with the tan
rarest and my favourite, it has an angry Pikachu to the side of Raichu!
Or is the red one with awesome yellow and black stripes the coolest?! I
dunno if I will wear them, and ruin them with my not-mint-condition
hair, but how groovytastic is that black fabric cap?
ウ ノートなど その他
Other Raichu Notebooks, Folders, etc.
How wonderful! Here we have folders and notebooks spanning many years,
but mostly from the 90's -- from America, Japan, China, and Korea. Some
are a big more electric-centric than Raichu-centric, and some only have
Raichu featured on the back, but beggars can't be choosers now can we?
Here we have a Japanese
Electric Shock Showdown, a fully illustrated and HUGE
Pokedex book with every Pokemon
through Leaf Green and Fire Red, a Japanese pop-up book, and two
American books - another
Shock Showdown and Raichu Shows Off. I wonder
what he is showing off?
I love these books, but as usual, Japan beats all! Take a look inside
of the Japanese Electric Shown Showdown book to see the really well
drawn, original artwork! Also includes original artwork from the popup
But where are
the regular sized books, you ask? Down at the bottom! These books are
far more rare and with teensy little details, so have a look!
Raichu Battle-Memo DX
Raichu Mini Sticker Book
Electric Shock Showdown! Magnetic Address Book
"Pocket Monsters Zukan
& Seal SP" Mini Pokedex Book
Pokemon Mini Quiz Book
- Vermilion Gym and Raichu!
book is TOO ADORABLE and super rare, found for me in amazing mint
condition by my friend Juumou, hidden in a little lot of random stuff.
Not only is it a mini Raichu book, it's a mini Raichu and Vermilion Gym
book, which this website should make clear I am obsessed with! Inside
is stickers and quiz questions about Pokemon Anime. You can stick the
badge sticker on the back if you answer it all right! It also
miraculously came with the pahmplet
showing all 8 gyms!
+ Other Various Clothings!
Well! Here's all my weird
Raichu clothes. Most are designed for a small child to wear, but a good
handful of these could be worn by anybody.
There's a ton of t-shirts, long sleeved shirts, a vest, a jacket, and
overalls. So, what are you going to do with these children's clothes,
ask? Well, I will be keeping them safe. Nothing creepy. Just going to
hoarde these clothes so that if my house is ever raided, they will
think I am a creeper.
Oh, there is also some 'do not want' clothing I should mention. I post
merely for documentation. This is not a wanted item....no, seriously. As glad as I am
Raichu got some attention, I'm much gladder not hoarding children's
undies in my house. I'd prefer the people who may raid me ne day to be
confused, not sickened. You might not think so looking at my site, but
man I got limits too!
the most famous of all Pokemon (it's true), Raichu has been on many
magazine covers since 1995 and here is the proof. This is my collection
of Raichu or Lt. Surge themed magazines, all of them also including
articles or stories about Raichu or Surge on the inside.
