Surfing Pikachu in Pokemon Yellow The Pokemon Company

Ever since Pokémon Yellow Version the lore of the Surfing Pikachu has always been around and in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon , trainers can finally get one on their own.

To receive your Surfing Pikachu you’ll need to get really good at the Mantine Surf minigame . There are four beaches that have Mantine Surf to correspond with the four islands of Alola, you’ll need to get the top spot on each beach, which may take some time but to get a Surfing Pikachu will be worth it.

Once you’ve become the top Mantine surfer in all four beaches of Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon , you’ll want to travel to Ula’ula Island and head over to Heahea City and find the house with the surfboards on the porch.

Enter this house and speak to the gentleman who will congratulate you on your efforts and gift a Pikachu that knows the move Surf.

A few things to note about this Surfing Pikachu. You can soft reset it to get a shiny or the IVs you desire. You also cannot breed this Pikachu to pass down the Surf move.

You can also evolve Surfing Pikachu into a Surfing Raichu or Alolan Raichu.

To get a Surfing Alolan Raichu, simply expose your Surfing Pikachu to a Thunderstone. To get a Surfing Kanto Raichu is a little more involved.

You’ll need to reach the part of the story where you enter Ultra Space. This area will allow for trainers to evolve their Pokémon into their Kantonian forms.

So if you want a regular Exeggutor, Marowak and Raichu, you’ll need to evolve the pre-evolution inside of Ultra Space.

For the sake of the Surfing Raichu, take your Surfing Pikachu into Ultra Space and use the Thunderstone to evolve it. It’s as simple as that.

Having Surf on your Pikachu/Raichu will be great for taking down their one weakness, Ground-type Pokémon and with Alola Raichu’s massive Special Attack stat, Surf will hit extra hard.

You can also try having Pikachu/Raichu hold a Waterium Z-Crystal to make the most out of Surf.

So have you received your Surfing Pikachu yet? What sets do you want it to have? Let us know in the comments section below.
