Pokemon Center Original Raichu PokeDoll
best little buddy.
11 years of waiting after Pikachu and
Pichu got theirs (2001), you finally have your own PokeDoll.
There can be miracles, when you believe. In
Giant Tomy Plush Raichu
Meet Raiceus, King of Raichu! He
is the biggest official Raichu plush ever (2 FEET TALL!), but we're
still kind of trying to figure out exactly where and when he was sold.
He is by TOMY, and his design is
similar to the Hasbro Raichu beanie. Back when
they created those beanies Hasbro used a lot of designs of already made
Japanese plush, and they were also the US distributors for TOMY goods.
Perhaps this fellow is linked between the two companies, or
a prototype of a toy never made for regular distribution. TOMY has been
known to create giant plush hardly anyone
or has even heard of. Where did you come from, you
mysterious large TOMY plushies...? The world may never know??? Thank
you to a toy collector in Poland for this beauty.

Bell Plush Raichu
I lied about plushies, I decided I will maybe never be able to find all
Raichu plushies, because LOOK AT THIS GUY I FOUND! He actually matches
the only Electabuzz plush ever made, found on the Electric page. Little

it's Raichu's first ever Pokemon Center plush.....!! (;___;)!! What a
wonderful day!! My two favourite lines have now gotten canvas plushies,
it's beautiful! I absolutely adore this Raichu to bits and pieces, from
her soft colors to her cute brown eyes and widdle nosey!!! One of the
best Raichu plush - ever!!
The Raichu on the top right was signed
by the director of Pokemon, Junichi Masuda, especially for me, in
person :D! Don't know why that's so special? Give him a google!
|I LOVE PIKACHU + カバンに付けられるぬいぐるみ ライチュウ
I LOVE PIKACHU + "Attach to a Bag" Plush Raichu!
The very first of the I LOVE PIKACHU + line! This cute keychain plush,
called the "Attach to a Bag" series (a common term in the I LOVE
lines), was actually a very early release - four months before the
actual start of the I LOVE PIKACHU + line! A "preview" if you will? Or
maybe to hold over rabid Raichu fans? Did they know we would write
strongly worded letters to them if they did not give us a Raichu RIGHT
NOW? Wait -- isn't strongly worded letters demanding Raichus how we got
the rest of the Pikachu family into this line to begin with? POW!

Super DX Raichu Plush! (Rolly Polly
Plush Evolution Series)
SOOOOO BIG! EEEEEK! This Raichu is the first Raichu plush to be released
in EIGHT YEARS - wow!! It is adorable, well made, so soft, so shimmery!
Look at that adorable tail and those ears and paws! I died from the
cute. I caught this big lovey dovey all by myself... and oh, how I love
you, Raichu!!!! NEW! The 2009 FUZZY version is here! I want to go
publically and say now that it's furry, it's one of the best official Raichu
plush ever made. No question. If you only own one Raichu, make it this
one. Thank you, Banpresto. Thank YOU!!!!

Springy Cord Light-up Raichu Plush
I thought I had finally found one of the last Raichu plush I needed to
plush collection! I was certain this would mean I had one of every
plush they ever made
of him... but I found a photo of an American Made plush I did not have
(at the time) the same day I found this little guy!!! And then
about a thousand
more! But I still feel the same elation thinking I had finally
completed my plush collection when I look at this cute smile.
Anyway...squeeeeak I'm in
love! His cord glows red!
AND JUST LOOK AT HIS SWEET FAAAACE!!!
Raichu Clip Plush
The plush I found in a long ago taken photo, searched all day to find
the taker, only to find she had stopped caring for Raichu and her clip
plush had been pooped on by ferrets and thrown away. Oh the pain!
But then! The shining light of the LJ Pokemon Community and its members
through months later, and here is my clippy, clippy-chan, probably the
last official Raichu plush I needed to complete my plushie collection...(is what I thought at the time, anyway. I was WRONG!)
"1995 Style" Roundest of
Round Very Round Raichu Plush
LOOK AT THIS
POTATOCHU. JUST LOOK!!! Shall I compare thee to a summer's day? Or King
Henry VIII? Or President William Howard Taft? How about just a pumpkin?
There are many things one can say about this Raichu, who I will call
"Raichu von Pokemon", which sounds fancy,
and also is what his
listing was titled. Raichu von Pokemon, you are a mystery of mammoth proportions. When Arceus
created you, he had a special plan in mind, one that did not include a
neck, or any reasonable amount of mobility. Raichu von Pokemon, you may
get from here to there by being rolled
along by a few Oompa Loompas, but my heart grew three sizes the day I
first laid eyes upon you. From all the trans fat. Please also feast
your eyes on his twin (on
the left), who has varied shades
of orange and yellow as compared to the original. Who are you and
why is your palette slightly altered, Raichu von Pokemon's twin?
PS: You win the prize for "Raichu
plush most resembling Raichu's original design", his Red/Blue
sprite. It's true -- Raichu really was originally a round blob with
limbs and ears. REPRESENTING.
American doesn't own this, should be ashamed of themselves.
This is THE American Raichu plush. Don't ever forget it.
Seriously. Go buy one on Ebay, right now.
Please also look to your RIGHT to see my extremely rare, possibly one
of a kind (at the very least, the only one known to exist), factory
error orange-eared Raichu Hasbro plush! He is 100% official with all
tush and hang tags and completely perfect except for his accidental
orange ears. A very unique and rare addition to my rat pack!!
There are also unofficial fakey versions of this plush, one with
string, found in a crane game in Europe, and one from Taiwan with a
cutely halved mouth. Check them
out too! They are oddly quite different for being simple copies of
the same plush.
South American Exclusive Raichu Coin Purse Plush "Raichu de
Wow!!! Check out this
adorable fellow!!! You wouldn't know it by looking at his cute ickle
innocent face, but this Raichu coin purse plush is one of the rarest
Raichu plush in existance! This Raichu is from a set that all had white
clips and color-coordinated straps and zipper pouches in their backs.
Despite having tags from Play-by-Play, Raichu's pattern, color and
style do not at all resemble the Raichu
by the same company. Folks saw this set of plush for sale from Mexico
to Brazil, and like the PBP slippers and backpack (amonst others) being
sold only in Canada, this Raichu was only ever sold in South America.
Now he has arrived in my heart, on May 5th, thus he shall be called,
Raichu de Mayo. OlÚ!

German Traveling Fair Raichu Plush
(Germanchus) (3 sizes+ Edited
Play by Play "Traveling Fair" Novelty Toys
are plushies from Germany, who were
for me by a friend of a friend! They all had no cheeks or belly, so I
them on to the one guy for fun and left the ones on the left
The lack of cheeks and belly made me wonder about them, but a German
friend finally explained where they came from! They were prizes at a
festival in Germany when Pokemon Yellow came out there. They had
Pikachu and Raichu
amongst other unique plush as prizes. For now we know of three sizes:
Large (25 cm), Medium (17 cm) and Small (12 cm), along with dark brown
and light bright versions, each with distinct eyes, nose and mouth
shapes. I am sure there are even more out there,
and I am on a quest to collect them all! :D They are such an adorable
and unique addition to my collection, and also incredibly rare, same as
some other German-only Pokemon plush
we've also seen.
Some have said they are the cutest Raichu
ever. Way to go, Germanchus! Gettin' all the ladies!

Germanchu is the same as the above ones, only he is....yellow?! He is
quite yellow. Very yellow but it doesn't take away from his cuteness,
no sir! He is also my only Germanchu with a fully intact tag, proving
the authenticity, origins, date of production and whatnot of himself
and his brothers. His tag's details can be seen below!

German Traveling Fair Raichu Plush
Play by Play "Traveling Fair" Novelty Toy
WOW!!! This guy is gigantic - see Pokedoll companion to get an idea! He
is also SO soft and fuzzy! And his
tail is almost 2 feet long, wowza! This might be the most huggable
Raichu in the whole world! He was my very first "Germanchu". His
origins were unknown,
this guy has his tag chopped off, however, the
Pikachu I got with him had a tag, and it is for the company
Play-by-Play. Further research revealed a big chance he is one
a set of foot-tall very fuzzy plushies (probably prizes in amusement
parks) by Play-by-Play, which included this
Yellowchu (above) arrived, all the clues finally fell into place! Now
this begs the question: How many more hard to
find, adorable Raichu plush did they possibly make?! I eagerly
await the truth WHICH I SHALL UNCOVER!
Please view the photo below to see all three shades of Germanchu
together at last!
Rather Fat "Big Ol' Butt" European
the Raichu with the biggest butt ever! He is yet another amazing
European exclusive Raichu plush -- though from what country in Europe,
we are not sure. The original owner's father traveled extensively and
brought her back many unique Pokemon plush from various countries, of
which Raichu was not the only one!
He is made of super soft, super fuzzy fur, and he joins the league of
Raichus with orange tails -- though most of the other orange-tails are
Japanese, not European. Because of his large bottom, I've named him
after one of my favourite improv comedians, Wayne Brady! Who used to be
very well known on Whose Line is it Anyway? for his big ol' butt B)
Happiest "Glowing Cheeks" Taiwan
Raichu plush from Taiwan was so
filthy, he was being given away as a freebie if you bought
something else. Of course I adopted this beautiful big boy with his
light-up red cheeks and flawless happy face! And of course I cleaned
him right up too, since when you have a unique and amazing new Raichu
plush you've never seen before, he deserves to be treated as a king.
His paw had glue residue, probably from a "Press Here" sticker, if the
others in this series are anything to go by.
As he is so happy and stuck in a perpetual state of laughter, his name
is "Drew Carey".
He is part of a series of Light-Up Cheek plushies, which also featured
Pikachu in a few sizes and fabrics. You can see some images of the
Pikachus in the series here!
Probably being part of this series is why his cheeks are red and not
Teensy Tiny Taiwan
PokeDoll sized version of the above huge Taiwanese made Raichu plush!
Despite being fairly yellow this is one of those rare mystery plush
that is basically perfect with markings and colors! He has a suction
cup and no tags. Compare him next to the Raichu PokeDoll with the image
above of the big guy with Raichu PokeDoll to get an idea of how cute
and petit this little guy is!
Fuzzy Raichu Backpack
I wanted this backpack for soooo long and I always lost it on Ebay so
finally one day I was like OMGGGG ARGH and I just went like
"$67584765865.00" for my high bid, and I won it! And I didn't have to
Mini Very Very YellowChu Plush
Mini Very Very YellowChu, almost if not more yellow than German YellowChu, with even more unknown
origins, but a handy little keychain attachment. His pattern doesn't
match any other Raichu plush I own, so who are you, mini YellowChu??
Who are you?!?!?!
Change to Pokeball Pokemon Mascot
This plush was on my
"Wanted Items" list for a long time and finally I found one on some weird
auction website. I used to have one when I was little, so I am
very very happy that he is mine again <3 Yay!
Friends (part 2)
Now THIS is soft! And so nice and fuzzy... I love you Pokemon Friends
Raichu <3 This is probably, also, the first Raichu plush ever
made. Keep that in mind folks.
カチュウ 進化 ぬいぐるみ
KFC Pokemon Evolving Pikachu/Raichu
Wow! What a discovery!!
This poor guy has been bootlegged all over Ebay and I had to search for
eight YEARS to find one that was real - and finally here he is, mint
from his package! Wow!! He was a KFC toy (there was also guys like
Poliwag -> Poliwhirl and Clefairy -> Clefable in the set) from
1999 in promotions that seemed to occur in most English-speaking Asian
countries like Singapore (where mine is from), Hong Kong and Malaysia.
He is just so extremely cute and I am SO glad to FINALLY know where and
what he is from, and own one with a complete tag and package set
including the original paper. The photos below show him as he was
packaged. The second guy I'm using in the photos is also official - but
had its tush tag cut off before I bought it, so I could still never
confirm where he was from or that he was even real. What a relief!! I
wanted to keep this cutie in my gallery and now I can do it with pride!
ライチュウ Part 1/Part 3 (2種類)
Raichu (2 kinds)
The less purpley one is actually one of the bigger plushies ever made
of Raichu. Kudos
to you, Raichu! Also both of these
prove that even some Japanese plush companies do
silly things with coloring... as if Jakks Pacific didn't already prove
that to us in America...
