Dude #2 in my massive crossstitch group-shot of cute video game characters is revealed: Raichu. Or, I guess, a raichu. He’s a pokémon (in case you’re one of the few people who both a) can’t identify pokémon on sight, and b) read my blog); more specifically, he’s sort of the adult version of Pikachu, with a taller and thinner body and more muted color palette. I prefer him to Pikachu, because he’s a bit less… “twee”, I suppose. He also has a cooler tail, although someone is standing in front of his tail in this scene, and you can’t really see it.
He’s not my favorite pokemans, but he’s probably in the top three. Also, I needed a character who was looking sort of upward, the reason for which will be apparent when you see the next guy.
