We have been overlooking a HUGE detail in the Alolan Raichu backstory.
The description says that no one knows why Raichu’s form changed in the Alola Region, and that it might be because it ate too many fluffy pancakes.
But what if it isn’t pancakes……
In the games, more specifically the 6th gen games, Pokemon Amie was introduced, and although it was fun, the only Pokemon it REALLY effected was Eevee evolving into Sylveon.
Now, back in Yellow, when Surfing Pikachu was a possibility, it’s counterpart was: Eevee.
And now we have an Eeveelution that utilizes Amie to evolve….maybe Raichu is the same?
There really was no point and no reason to which PokePuffs you give you Pokemon, but maybe there will be a specific, harder to find variant that tastes like Pancakes that you have to feed to your Pikachu, and once you raise it’s happiness enough through that, it will evolve.
Honedge comes into being when a departed spirit inhabits a sword that once belonged to humans. It can use the blue cloth attached to its hilt as nimbly as an arm. If you were to carelessly take this blade in hand, you may find that blue cloth wrapping around you…draining the energy from your body!
Honedge can learn the Normal-type move Swords Dance, which sharply raises the user’s Attack Stat. Use this move at the beginning of a battle against another Trainer and be ready to defeat opposing Pokémon one after another!
