Surfing Raichu! Today, we got confirmation that Raichu’s Alola incarnation is real in Pokémon Sun and Moon, but ever since the leaks hit, people have been fascinated with the character’s new surfing form.

Okay, okay. It looks more hovering than riding the waves, but who cares? This is ELECTRIC SURFING.

And surfing on its tail! Genius.

No wonder “Raichu” (ライチュウ) started trending in Japan. The fan art, however, has been global.
