#026 Raichu used Brick Break and Wild Charge!
Raichu used Brick Break by Altarior
Altarior is one of the around 15 artists that were invited for our first Pokémon Art Collaboration. I saw her impressive take on Hoh-Oh in February 2016 and thought that someone who draws the Pokémon with such a dedication would sure like the idea of a project that celebrates the 20th Anniversary of the first Pokémon games and also adds a new twist with the focus on illustrating the many different abilities of the first 151 Pokémon.
I am sure she will be back for Gen II in 2017 🙂
“An attack that also breaks any barrier like Light Screen and Reflect”
The Brick Break move was introduced in the Gen III Pokémon games and is a damage dealing Fighting-type move that has the side effect of removing Reflect and Light Screen as long as the enemy is not a Ghost-type Pokémon..at least since Gen VI.
Raichu can learn this move by using the Technical Machine #31. Hitmonlee and Pinsir are the only Gen I Pokémon that can learn Brick Break through leveling.
Raichu used Wild Charge by Faith-Wolf
Faith-Wolf from the USA draws usually a lot MLP Fan Art but also Pokémon sometimes, so she joined our project with her take on Raichu.
“The user shrouds itself in electricity and smashes into its target. It also damages the user a little”
The Wild Charge is a damage-dealing Electric-type move that debuted in the Gen V games and is teached via TM for the most Pokémon. Only currently ten Pokémon can learn it through leveling. The user receives 1/4 recoil damage of the damage that was done to the target.
“Its long tail serves as a ground to protect itself from its own high voltage power”
Raichu is an Electric-type Pokémon and the final evolution of Pichu. It is bigger and stronger than the Pikachu usually and starts with moves like the Thunder Shock and the Quick Attack in the Gen VI Games. There is an Alola Variant of Raichu which looks a bit different and is classified as a dual Electric/Psychic-type Pokémon. It is also known as a Mouse Pokémon.
