A new Pachirisu is the first card to be revealed from Japan’s next set, SM5 Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon! The set will release in Japan on December 8th.

Pachirisu – Lightning – HP70
Basic Pokemon

[L] Static Generator: For each of your Benched Pokemon with a Nuzzle attack, search your deck for a basic [L] Energy and attach it to that Pokemon. Then, shuffle your deck.

[L] Nuzzle: Flip a coin. If heads, your opponent’s Active Pokemon is now Paralyzed.

Weakness: Fighting (x2)
Resistance: Metal (-20)
Retreat: 1

America and Europe will get Pachirisu in our Ultra Prism set, which releases February 2nd.

Thanks goes to Michael S. and Bangiras for the translation!

Pachirisu’s artwork looks like a Mickey Mouse cartoon!

    Could possibly combo with alolan raichu, and using pikachu's nuzzle to expand the energy usage.

    this could be decent in Raichu, though you'd have to have only 60 HP

    Not bad in Raichu Ex

    Bridgette into 3 Pikachu/Pachirisu for at least 2 Energy

    Downside is that it doesnt count itself, it would have been amazing had it given you 3 Energy from the deck and that you have to run 60 HP Pikachus making you at risk to spread tactics (there are no 70 HP Nuzzle Pikachus iirc)

    you can use it on a raichu gx card THAT HAS shining celebei, this could be an amazing way to boost energy even more then shl raiku

    you can’t use it even if there is a Celebi in play, as Celebi reads that “evolutions CAN use attacks from their previous evolutions” Raichu doesnt have the nuzzle attack, but he can use it, therefor it will not work with celebi

    Also good for Tapu Koko GX if Energy is there so you can play it onto bench, throw the energy over and bring it into play.

    This is actually a pretty creative mechanic, has anything like this ever existed in the game (besides 'Round' attacks)?

    Night March does more damage depending on the number of Pokemon in your discard pile with the move Night March.

    So they made us blow a bunch of money on Pikachu products to get the 70 HP one, just to tell us to use the Full arts instead? Actually, this card really won't see play in Raichu anyway, I hope. It looks like it'd run better than some of the other Energy techs I came up with, since it's something you use to get a bunch of Energy out on the first couple turns, and with Brigette, getting possibly 3 Energy (speaking realistically) on the first turn and 4 if you include the squirrel, that's pretty crazy. With Raikou existing, not sure about it, but I see potential.

    Raikou takes a lot more to KO, so with fast starting decks like we do right now, I think Raikou will more consistently be able to go off. Pachirisu will definitely be valuable vs matchups where they take longer to get going / build more damage or evolve up. So, I agree with most of what you say, it will just depend on where the metagame goes, if aggressive cards like Volcanion or Drampa are running around, it will definitely make Raikou the bettee pick. Otherwise, Pachirisu might ramp Raichu decks really quickly.

    • Pachirisu - Confirmed! You can find Pachi in USUM! Anyways, name cards that has Nuzzle attacks and legal in standard. Pikachu? Only Pikachu? And 70 HP? You just wasting my time. Just use Raikou. Bit sturdy, and gives speed. Evolving Pikas to Raichus in order not to be targeted by Buzzwole, makes it useless. 2 Geodudes

    Attaching 1 energy vs potentially 5 is a huge difference.
    If you let Raikou do its thing for 2 or 3 turns it’s still man manageable. Let Pachirisiu do the same and? They have over 10 Energy On the board and when they evolve Raichu they are doing over 200 damage every turn.
