Supposedly Raichu's removed evolution had horns and fangs, named Gorochu. So I had a go at the design!

This looks simply unbelievably Amazing and right on the money especially the 3 volt circle 2 on the cheeks, & one on the forehead

This is by far the best concept art for Gorochu out there. It still has that old Sugimori design feel from Gen I, but also has a modern look that would fit in well with the newer 'mons. I truly hope that at some point Game Freak introduces Gorochu as a split evo for Pikachu, and that it looks something like this. I can see it being Electric/Dark or Electric/Fighting.

Yeah, this was how I was imagining it. It was described as 'frightening'. So the black on Pikachu's ears, going up into Raichu, was an evolution into Ken Sugimori's Nidoran-like 'huge horns'. A++++

OMG, it's really was a discarted evolution of Pikachu?

I love the concept, i'm easely imagine in Pokemon game.

To be honest, it's better the new pokemon concepts (i'm a bit old school, sorry, i've stopped at Ruby & Saphire :XD:)

Yeah there really was! It was in an interview, recently.

I get ya, the style and look of the newer Pokémon have definitely gone in a different direction, not all will enjoy it! There are some really good ones, such as Mimikyu and Phantump. :") Check them out some time.

I love how you depicted their cheeks as two-thirds of a mitsudomoe, fitting for the 'thunder-god' motif Gorochu was apparently supposed to have...!
