I really love the biology behind this Pokemon, and think it fits in well with an urban area such as this Joseon region where electricity can probably be found everywhere. Giragarig is so unloved, and why this now isn't a unique type with the introduction of Alolan Raichu (who is also awesome), it's still a really cool type that I'd love to see more of. I also love how the tail is now based on the Amp enemy from Super Mario 64, and I would've never thought of doing it, but it is absolutely brilliant.

Thanks! :D

I always thought Girafarig was a fun-looking 'Mon, so I wanted to give it a little love and a little boost :)

Also 'twas a shoutout to the folks who knew Mario 64
