Raichu is the second. Pachirisu is the first.

Regular or Alolan?
Raichu won in 2016 so Regular.

Anyone think it's funny that there are no Pokemon who can use time screwing powers in game?
Like, you can't go ZA....WARUODO!!! with Celebi and freeze your enemies turn for a bit or flat out turn back time in game?
There are only two time manipulating Pokemon in the series (Celebi and Dialga) in the entire franchise though, so maybe that's why it's not a thing yet.
Regirock was doomed from the word go. I'm only surprised he was so decent in Gen 3.
I'm not sure how one can even do time-stop in Pokemon, outside of just being part of the move animation.
How come Comet Punch isn't a fighting attack?
It feels like it should be a fighting attack?
Then again, so do Mega Punch and Mega Kick.
Dunno, Fighting moves need some amount of technique behind them?
Turn based moves get extended by an X amount of time? Terrains, Weather, Screens and Rooms are buffed, Toxic might be nerfed by it, Outrage, Thrash and Uproar last longer, Rest is a death sentence?
If Mega Punch and Mega Kick are just 'throw every ounce of strength into one attack', then Comet Punch would be a series of rabbit punches-weak, but fast. The fighting-ish Normal moves are, conceptually, more like street brawling moves-effective, but lacking in technique. Hence the high power, low accuracy, and lack of useful secondary effects; compared to things like Low Sweep, Force Palm or Brick Break.

GameInformer went to check out Worlds, in case anyone wants to know what that's like.
I just realized how some localization names are actually eerily accurate. Nyarth -> Meowth, Gaogaen -> Incineroar among other things.
I’m particularly fond of “Enbuoh” to “Emboar”.
We got some Global Link News. I'm stealing this translation from somewhere else:
For Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield, services equivalent to the current Rating Battle and Online Competitions are planned to be supported. However, PGL will not support Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield.
These battles and Online Competitions can be enjoyed in Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield using just the connectivity features of Nintendo Switch* Game Sync will not be required for these new games. For more information on Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield, visit the official site.
In addition, functionality from PGL to view services such as Rankings, Distribution Regulations, and the events calendar will be provided through Pokémon HOME, which is planned for release on iOS and Android devices in early 2020.
Please look forward to more details about Pokémon HOME coming soon!
#533.5 - Usually found near construction sites alongside Timburr and Conkeldurr, Gurdurr are known to usually carry an I-beam girder in its arms. The steel frame is used to train its muscles, and Gurdurr boast about their muscles with their comrades. These Pokemon are so muscular and strongly built that even a group of wrestlers could not make one budge an inch. As they age, wild Gurdurr will go off to develop their own concrete, the mixture recipe having been passed down through Pokemon lines. They will create their own concrete pillars, which fully mature Gurdurr - Conkeldurr - use both in and outside of battle.
This Team Rocket performance evaluation is hilarious. https://www.pokemon.com/us/pokemon-news/team-rocket-performance-evaluations/
Man, it's hard to imagine that's on the official site. I'm wondering if the ID numbers mean anything; they're easy to transpose into a month, day, and year.
Also, they misspelt Mt. Moon as Mt. Doom at one point. Oops.
Maybe Team Rocket is stopping another group of twerps, particularly the one carrying that one ring of power.
While I was watching BrainScratch Commentaries' first part of their Platinum playthrough, Ted, despite his loathing of gen 4, had a point regarding the inevitable remakes.
In order to make the games more natural, ala Gen 7 and 8, they are likely going to need to redo most of the map because of how blocky the games are before gen 7.
This might mean that unless they had part of the team working on making the Sinnoh map less blocky during Sword/Shield's development, there is a chance we might not see the gen 4 remakes next year.
The biggest complaints people have about the Sinnoh games are the speed and Pokedex selection, neither of which means they have to redesign the region.
Besides its possible to go the ORAS route and have it be super faithful to the exact tile.
So, the Spaceworld 97 demo seems to have been cracked.
It looks like they had to cut about a third of the Baby Pokemon, Pinsir was going to get an evolution, and Weepinbell looked to be getting a split...
Politoed's original design is basically just a Wollywog.
Or a Tentaquil.
