RD Bio - Ross the Raichu by TamarinFrog RD Bio - Ross the Raichu by TamarinFrog
Updates:
12.5.2013: Fixed some typos and added the extra about the color of his electricity.

characters mentioned in the bio:
Scratch: fav.me/d65s0k7
Saria: fav.me/d66rt9b
Elisa: fav.me/d6onbw1

And today we have one of fans' favourites, Ross the raichu! :D

Well well! Ross was a gift from Lt. Surge? No wonder he is Elisa's favourite companion. (those who don't know, Elisa is from Vermilion city and Surge is her idol).
And yes, Lt. Surge's raichu could be Ross' father but I am not gonna confirm nor deny that. ;)

And yes, grass knot is gone. It's a great move but I don't find it that interesting in comic way. I REALLY wanted to give him a move where he can use that smexy tail!
And I really wanted to give him a volt tackle. It's pikachu family's signature move after all.

And I'd like to thank everyone who has pointed grammar mistakes in past bios! Helps me a lot! :D

i like to imagine that surge's egg hatches and he see's pichu and says "I can't have this puny baby pokemon, what should i do with this?"  and then randomly selects a person from his fan mail that he never reads.  think im acting like a jerk?  have u ever seen the anime or the manga with red?  he literly tries to kill a ten year old!

Quick question: Why did they get rid of Iron Tail as a TM? Now I can't teach MY Raichu Iron Tail!

I just realized something about Ross's new design!

It fits my Doctor Ross story VERY WELL!

Ross was modeled (in my story) after the Tenth Doctor (portrayed by David Tennant)....well, he had hair that spiked upwards in the front....as does Ross's new design.

I'm not kidding! Take a look at Ross's design, and then take a look at the Tenth Doctor > [link]

No grass knot? Aww, I like grass-knot-wielding electric types. Funnily enough, I actually pictured grass knot on electric types being clotheslining the target with their tails. I first was wondering whether Ross's father could be Surge's raichu, as Surge didn't have any volt-tackling pokémon, but then I realized Ross's father didn't have to know volt tackle for Ross to. So, Elisa is from Vermilion and loves Surge, huh? Explains her thunder badge on her cap.

Well, Ross is sure a cute shy little fella in all stages. By the looks of it, it might be a good thing Surge gave Ross away, I'm not sure his military style would do the little guy any good. I wonder what his usual target is for releasing his electricity.

no no you spelled it "shashes" in the bio. You are right though "sashes" is the correct spelling.

Also "Ross'" would actually be "Ross's" (I think) because Ross' would mean there is more than one Ross.

I love the bio though !!!

You're lucky people found a loophole in black that actually allows pikachu to evolve while still retaining volt tackle or people would be calling bullshit on this bio......
Reply
:icontamarinfrog:
TamarinFrog Featured By Owner May 12, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
What are you talking about? You get volt tackle to pichu by breeding and evolve it to pikachu, and then to raichu. How would the attack disappear during that?
Reply
:iconthunder-kite:
Thunder-Kite Featured By Owner May 16, 2013
Well pikachu can't evolve by leveling while it has volt tackle, you HAVE to do it the old fasioned way and use a thunderstone and most people don't have any thunderstones left by the time they realise they need one for that particular occurance. It took awhile before people relised pikachu could still evolve the old fasioned way
Reply
:icontamarinfrog:
TamarinFrog Featured By Owner May 16, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
I... Really don't get your point. I tested this and bred perfectly legal pichu with a volt tackle, evolved into a pikachu and taught it all these moves and evolved into a raichu in pearl. There is NOTHING illegal about this moveset. It's not even that hard to get! Took me 15 minutes!
Reply
:iconthunder-kite:
Thunder-Kite Featured By Owner May 17, 2013
I'n not saying the moveset's illegal, I'm saying that pikachu has to have a stone used on it to evolve into raichu when it knows volt tackle and since most people don't HAVE one in black/white when they have a pikachu with volt tackle seeing as stones are so damn rare in gen 5 a lot of people thought pikachu couldn't evolve while it knew volt tackle

I never heard of such loophole, but I don't have black. Who won't it retain the move anyway?
Reply
:iconthunder-kite:
Thunder-Kite Featured By Owner May 16, 2013
Well the thing is, pikachu started evolving at level 25 without a thunderstone and in 5th gen stones are VERY restricted compared to the diamond/platinum/pearl set so it took awhile before people realised you have to evolve pikachu the old fasioned way if it has volt tackle

I love this redesign, as well as how you make him seem like a real person.

I also love his backstory. Trust me, if I didn't go through diglett cave, I think Lt. Surge would be the hardest gym leader....he just LOVES to paralyze my pokemon.....
