Description

Raikou is a tiger-like creature. It carries rain clouds on its back which let it fire Thunderbolts at will. In the Pokédex, it states that it "descends with the lightning", and it "races across the land barking a cry that sounds like crashing thunder". While running it stores up static electricity, then shoots off the excess. It is also said to help other electric Pokémon if they are in danger.

Location

Chance to appear in any encounter (shadow and shiny as well)

Evolution

Raikou is not evolved, and will not evolve.

Ability

  • Pressure: Raises target's move cooldown.
  • Volt Absorb: Restores HP if Pokemon is hit by Electric moves.
