Pokédex Data

  • Gold/LeafGreen/Stadium 2/HeartGold/X
    The rain clouds it carries let it fire thunderbolts at will. They say that it descended with lightning.
  • Silver/FireRed/SoulSilver
    A Pokémon that races across the land while barking a cry that sounds like crashing thunder.
  • Crystal/Y
    This rough Pokémon stores energy inside its body, then sweeps across the land, shooting off electricity.

  • Ruby/Sapphire/OmegaRuby/AlphaSapphire
    Raikou embodies the speed of lightning. The roars of this Pokémon send shock waves shuddering through the air and shake the ground as if lightning bolts had come crashing down.
  • Emerald
    Raikou embodies the speed of lightning. Its roars send shock waves shuddering through the air and ground as if lightning bolts were crashing down.

  • Diamond/Pearl/Platinum/Black/White/Black 2/White 2
    It is said to have fallen with lightning. It can fire thunderbolts from the rain clouds on its back.

  • Ranger
    Raikou is a legendary Pokémon that dashes while dropping thunderbolts.

  • Super Smash Bros. Melee
    These violent lightning Pokémon travel near and far, blasting out electrified whirlwinds. They carry storm clouds on their backs, so they can produce lightning regardless of the local weather; it’s even said that they descended to the earth via lightning bolts. Their extreme quickness lends itself to flight, so they’re very hard to capture.
