A closer look at my Raichu
Current Custom Raichu Plush Count: 22 custom plush! (and 3 Lt. Surge)
I love Raichu plush more than anything else and I cannot get
There are many official Raichu
plush dolls, for which I am extremely grateful, as some people's
favourite Pokemon never even gets one. Yet it is still not enough for
me, and I have asked many artists to create
my ideal Raichus in ways that
have never been seen before!
RAI-RAI-RAI! ENJOY THE PACK
OF RATS! But
Raichus are COMING SOON to Gin's
Rai-Gang? Let's see!
If you have an item you do not see listed
on Sunyshore.com or see on my Wanted Items
page, please let me know.
(if you won't
sell or trade it to me, at least for documentation). Enjoy! ヾ(o^▽^o)ノ

12 Inch PokeDoll: Raichu
(Regular and Shiny!)
When Raichu finally got his PokeDoll in December
2012, all my dreams came true in one single moment. As you can see in
the entry below this, I never did give up and commission a regular
Raichu PokeDoll despite obviously loving custom plush. But of course
once he made his grand debut, a big DX PokeDoll counterpart also came
into being! And as per the artist's own wishes and whims, a DX Shiny
PokeDoll had to complete the set. Perfection.
Artist: Baby London Star
[Text as it
was before 12/2012 follows]:
Okay... I know, I know. He is amazing, right? Looks
totally like the real deal!! Because his artist is amazing! But
let's be honest. This is not a real Pokedoll, there is no
real Raichu Pokedoll*. So why don't I commission a regular Raichu
Pokedoll, rather than a shiny one as this Raichu is?
Because I am holding out, see. Not quitting. Haven't yet given up hope
that one day, some magical day, Pokemon Center will realize how dumb it
is to have Pokedolls of all the mice Pokemon except Raichu, and he will
have a real Pokedoll, and all will be normal in the world.
One day I know IN MY HEART!!! that a real Raichu Pokedoll
will be in the photo with this gorgeous Shiny custom, whom I love to
And hope one day he will have a brother...
*[Text edited after 12/2012]: Heh.
(Game) Lt. Surge and
Raichu Plush (and Shiny Raichu!)
he is, the Lt. Surge plushie to end all Lt.
Surge plushies! Poseable, he can sit or stand, and best of all, his
outfit spans the generations, covering all his artwork from each game
he's been in, even the Trading Card Game!! Every last detail is perfect
and gorgeous, from his miniature dog tags and lightning patch to the
treads on his military boots. His Raichu pal is by Usakochan, and has a
matching Luxray brother who lives with Volkner! Volkner wants to share
Raichu especially. Hey me too!

A Picture Paints a Thousand Raichu (Custom)
This gorgeous painted Raichu by my wonderfully talented friend Growly
is based on the Raichu painted in gouche by the insanely amazing Becky.
Growly managed to capture his spirit perfectly, down to his little ears
and head floof! Painted Raichu loves to pose with his actual real life
Much thanks to both...
Painting by: Becky
Um. This is
Raiham. ...I don't........... even know what to say. Just..... just
Raiham. And... cry. Cry because you will never be this cute and fuzzy,
Despite being affectionately called "Raiham", he is actually a
mousey-creature, not a ham. He is one of my three realistically
designed Pokemon toys -- all of whom I love beyond words! See them all
in these group shots, and think how awkward it is that a bird like
Zapdos could eat a mouse, and weasels like Mienshao would eat a bird.
More shots of Mienshao are on my "Other
Pokemon" non-Electrics page!
Held Item Raichu (Custom)
Wow - just wow. This is the Raichu half of a pair of
little guys that I designed and the artist Usakochan brought to life,
with strong magnets in their paws to hold their items, which consist of
a Wacan Berry, Zap Plate, Electrizer and Thunderstone! They are 100%
minky and they are also beanies to be floppable and cuddleable! I LOVE
THEM! Some of my favourite customs of all time.

Count Raicula +
OMIGOSH!! Look at this cutiepie! And his fangs! He -
he - he is Count Raicula, come to suck your bluuuuuuuuuud! He is the
sweetest vampire in the entire world, and perfect for Halloween times
or anytimes, because he's Count Raicula and he is good any time! His
arms are poseable too! And his little legs, and ears, and eyes, aaaaaah
and paws!! AND his cape matches the other
Halloween plush of 2009! BWUAHAHA! Raimpkin is his sidekick of course,
a spooky Halloween gift from a good friend.

Happiest Amigurumi Raichu (Custom)
Wow - I wouldn't usually use such strong language,
but I think this is maybe the NUMBER ONE CUTE RAICHU in my ENTIRE
collection - cute points are out the ROOF on this guy!! I searched for
a long time for the perfect cutest Raichu amigurumi and I finally,
finally finally got this fellow!! He is just wonderful - soft yarn,
stitched details, perfect artistic felt work - just look at his ear
curls - even a floppy tail and brown button nose - absolutely
pefect!!!! Psst... there's more pics of him with his Luxray brother in
the Lions gallery... :D
Volkner's Raichu ("bitchez don't
Meet mah bebeh, with his poseable arms and
tail and bitchez don't know attitude, what else could you want from an
adorable Raichu?! His eyes and face are all beautifully done all-thread
details, and his wickle feety paws and curly ears are simply TO DIE
FOR!!! In my mind when I asked for him and his Luxray equivalent to be
designed I had Volkner's Pokemon in mind, so here he is, smug as the
Raichu of the top gym leader ought to be!
|大きいマチスのライチュウ （”マチスチュウ”） （手作り）
Giant Lt. Surge's Raichu ("Surgechu")
IT IS SURGECHU!!! At a whopping foot-and-a-half tall, with the FUZZIEST
AND HUGEST Raibelly I have EVER seen, I am COMPLETELY head over heels
for him!! He is huggable, squeezable, squishable, and poseable to boot!
This commission came about after a PKMNcollectors member complained
that commissions were too expensive and not worth it. Not worth it?!
Too expensive?! My goodness gracious! This was a commission WELL WORTH
IT! I love him so much!
Sleepy Normal AND Shiny Raichu Plush! (Custom)
Well. These are
basically some of the best Raichu plush I've ever held in my hands.
There's nothing else to say except for that. Wow. They are perfect in
every way. Please click the photos for more shots of these wonderful
little guys. The Pikachu in some of the photos is the 2008 Nemuri
Pikachu - which came out AFTER I got these plush! Yet they match so
well! Such foreshadowing.
Lt. Surge in Raichu Pajamas
Well here is
Lt. Surge in Raichu Pajamas, or a Raichu Halloween costume, or a
Raichu... it's not a fursuit unless it covers up your face, right? Just
Personally I don't even think the "real" Surge would have an issue with
this outfit. This IS the man who waits around hoping someone will trade
with him for the cutest Pokemon ever (in his opinion), a Pikachu. How
can a man like that not wear Raichu Pajamas?
Shiny Winking Raichu (based on My
Pokemon Ranch) (Custom)
CUTE BABY!! This is a little guy inspired by My Pokemon Ranch design,
made for me by Libby ("Mister Nipples")! He was the first request on a
list of commissions about a hundred strong, and I'm so glad I got my
name in on that list, because I adore this guy to pieces. His seams are
so flawless AND THOSE PAWS, OH GOSH!!! With a unique little expression
and shiny as can be I will love him always <3
(Anime) Lt. Surge and
(with Thunder Badge!)
YAY! (written back before I had any human Pokemon
chara plush at all:) I've finally got a plushie of Lt. Surge - and
it's adorable! He comes with his mean fat Raichu and even has a shiny
Thunder Badge to show off. So cute and so huggable! The next best thing
to official Gym Leader plush... which might have ended up being less
cute if they'd ever made them, anyway. All photos are clickable for
Shiny Round Chibi Raichu!
Isn't this fellow so sweet? I just love his ear designs with the yellow
part being a circle inside the black! This little guy was originally
made for somebody else, and the design was so popular that the artist
was asked to make him a few more times in various sizes. I always
thought the original was the cutest, but I didn't ask for one even
though I really liked it, because I prefer to (attempt to) have
original designs not copied from someone else's custom plush (elitist
However, the girl who it was originally for decided to let him go for
space reasons, and I jumped right at the chance to own this little
fellow who I had longed for! He is one of the cutest designed Raichus
I've ever seen and that's saying something because I've seen quite a
lot over the last decade!

Raichu + Thunderstone Pocket Pillow Plush! (Custom)
This gorgeous foot tall super soft pillow is by the wonderful Markisan
on Deviantart, and it is just AMAZING! He went above and beyond the
call of duty. When I asked for a Raichu hugging a Thunderstone, he made
the arms a pocket to hold anything, including a little Thunderstone
too!! WOW!!! This guy is so adorable and I love him to death and keep
him in my bed with me. Not to mention this is the first Thunderstone
item in my collection, oddly, after eleven years of loving
Thunderstones! They just never made Evolutionary Stone stuff I guess...
Anyway check out the cutiepie! All photos can be clicked for bigger
GIANT Raichu Pillow Plush! (Custom)
LIFESIZE!!!!!! TWO FOOT TALL!!!!!! SOFT AND SQUISHY!!!!!
That's all one can say.
Laying Shiny Rairai (Custom)
HOW SWEET IS THIS LITTLE BABY!! He is a Raichu made for me in a trade
with Growlithe collector Grrrowly, and I absolutely adore his unique
design and pose, especially his face and paws, that look like no other
Raichu plush I've seen, but are so adorable and wonderful!! Topped off
with a fuzzy belly he is so cuddly and sweet. So much love!
Based on the Raichu megablock, the world's first square Raichu plush!!!
So adorable, so cute!! Design is original to the artist, as well! AND
FUZZY BELLY!!! He is just
precious!! Precious... cubed? Precious to the cube power! (smack me.)
Raichu and Sleepy
Raichu on the Moon Plush (手作り）
Look at this tiny baby Raichu bean, with hand
embroidery! Look at that little mouth, that little face!! With a ring
and tab for hanging up, what a sweet Raichu from the Israeli artist
yael360 on Etsy!!!
Little sleepy Raichu on the Moon was a gift from Theredbat... an
adorable Raichu made of felt with hand painted and decorated details!
How sparkly and wonderful.... I'm in love!!! With
a tab for hanging. This is one of the most cute and precious Raichus I
have. Thank you, thank you!
Get Well Soon Chu (Custom)
In August 2010
I was remarkably sick - two coldsin one month, and a tetanus shot that
left my arm immobilized for five days. Toss some bad old jetlag in and
I was a droopy moping soldier. Boohoohoo, right! Well an amazingly
caring friend did indeed worry about my state of endless sniffles and
created this adorable package for me - entirely handmade, all four of
them!! Look at the tiny details on the charms - and that amazing rose
detail! Not to mention that worried little Chu face!! Well I did indeed
feel cheered up - THANK YOU, sweetie!!
Four Eyed Alien
Aren't they gorgeous? These are handmade
resin thunderstone earrings and keychains, which are basically exact
replicas of thunderstones, on a keychain! Since I was young I always
drew my "Pokemon Trainer" character with thunderstone earrings, so
these are such a dream come true! Yes, the bolts are INSIDE the resin!
They are just perfect! I love how the greens vary, too... just like how
they vary over time in the games and anime!
Artist: nemuineko85, dontpressb (on etsy!)
These are technically not
official items so I've put them here with customs,
but I feel bad about it since they are so nifty and good as official!
:D Well, these are my
Raichu doujinshi, and as of now I own ever Raichu doujinshi I've ever
seen for sale! A few are stories of a Raichu
and Typhlosion team (NO YIFFING), one is about a Pikachu and Raichu's
adventures, and a few anthologies with short stories about Raichus, one over 80
pages of pure Raichu manga and drawings, by many famous artists, and
incredibly rare! I had to fight very hard for it, and dish out a bit,
but it was worth it! The pink cover Raichu punching one is also an
anthology with 126 pages - holy crap! It's by the same folks who put
out the first one, and it was their first Raichu anthology in 9 years.
I also own an adorable
little doujinshi storybook of Raichu, some of the art of which can be
seen below, but it was left out of the photo on the right. Oops! The
cover can be seen on the right!
