We all know and adore the little yellow Pokemon who made us all fall in love with the monster catching game, but what if Ash’s best friend, wasn’t just the adorable little yellow creature we know him to be? What if Pikachu had a dark side?
The illustrator of Pikachu claims that the iconic Pokemon actually has, rather interesting third evolution that could prove to be the unmasking of the adorable little yellow dude.
Pokemon Illustrator, Atsuko Nishida, claims that the new evolution of Pikachu was similar to the one we all know, but this particular evolution was designed with horns and frightening fangs. The frightening new form of this loveable monster was to be called Gorochu.
Everyone was pleased with the design of Gorochu. However, the team believed that the presence of this new evolution could disrupt the game.
Fans of the Pokemon franchise should not despair, as there are many more new and exciting evolutions for the Pokemon you know and love. Fan favorites such as Bulbasaur, Charmander and Squirtle have third evolutions, so there’s still hope that there will be another evolution in addition to Pikachu and Raichu.
With the Pokemon franchise continuing to grow, there is hope that we will see Pikachu get in touch with his dark side in the future. After all, there are over 802 Pokemon.
