Can you get a raichu in Pokemon Yellow?
Locations: Raichu cannot be caught in Yellow (nor can you evolve your starting Pikachu into a Raichu), but you can catch Raichu in both Blue and Red in the Unknown Dungeon. Apart from its higher stats, Raichu is very similar to Pikachu. It doesn’t have very high HP for an evolved Pokemon, so be quick in your battles.
