Raichu is Lt. Surge's un-nicknamed Raichu in Pokémon FireRed and Pokémon Crystal. He is the signature Pokémon of the Cerulean City Gym Leader.

Pokémon FireRed Edit

Part 11 Edit

Lt. Surge's Raichu was the Gym Leader's third and final Pokémon. It took the field against Emile's Ivysaur after the Grass/Poison-type knocked out his two teammates. In response to Emile requesting a challenge instead of sweeping with his over-leveled starter, Raichu used Double Team, and Emile lost his reservations about being cheap. The Double Team proved ineffective as Ivysaur struck Raichu with Leech Seed and Razor Leaf attacks, ultimately defeating it with little difficulty.

Pokémon Crystal Edit

Kanto - Part 5 Edit

Lt. Surge's Raichu was the Gym Leader's first Pokémon. Emile sent out his Donphan against it, leaving it unable to do anything but Quick Attack. Donphan lacked any Ground-Type attacks, having exhausted Mud-Slap against the Gym's other trainers, and consequently used Rollout. Three hits later, Raichu went down.

Trivia Edit

  • Lt. Surge's Raichu is the first Gym Leader's signature Pokémon...
    • That has only one Type.
    • That had a lower level than another of his Pokémon in the rematch.
