I have just caught a perfect Alolan Raichu from the weekly research and have powered him up all the way. It maxes at 2286 normally, 2315 with best buddy boost, which is a bit low considering that Alolan Raichu’s stats are attack weighted. However, with the abundance of flyers and Alolan Raichu’s surprising coverage, I’m wondering if he is worth using in Ultra League Premier.
I would use it with Volt Switch, Psychic and Grass Knot as a switch in. My team would be:
Lead: Snorlax (L, BS, O)
Switch: Alolan Raichu (VS, P, GK)
Closer: Toxicroak (C, MB, SB)
What do you guys think? PVPoke gives Alolan Raichu 123 wins and 185 losses in Ultra Premier, but are these numbers reliable with respect to Alolan Raichu’s viability?
