Raiden is a male Shinx and Amber Mitchell's first and main Pokémon and is always outside of his Pokéball. He was originally given to Kennedy as an Egg from her father, Antony Mitchell.


Like his species, when Raiden senses danger, he will blind them momentary and then run. But with most cases, Raiden will be very stubborn, often going up against opponents more experienced than he is. Raiden has a strong attachment with Amber and does not like when she is not near him. Raiden is fearless in battle and Amber always uses him. Raiden works best with Drago, Leafia, and Psyche.


As a Shinx, Raiden is a defense mechanism, so his fur can glow brightly to blind predators so he can escape. In addition, as an Electric-type, Raiden can also use moves such as Charge and Spark. His favorite move is using Thunderbolt and then while the opponent is stunned, will attack with a powerful Tackle.

Raiden was given to Amber as an egg by her father, Antony Mitchell. Once hatching, Raiden officially became Amber's first Pokémon. Raiden would join Amber at a Pokémon Academy in Striaton City, where she went to school, but Amber was always teased for always loosing battles, as Raiden was still very young. But one day while being teased, a wild shiny Umbreon came to their rescue.

After the death of Antony, Raiden went to Amber as she and her mother moved to Sinnoh. When Amber started her journey, Raiden was her starter. Also Raiden refuses to evolve as he wants to get stronger with evolving. Amber went with Amber through all the regions and remains her most loyal and powerful Pokémon, second to Psyche, and third to Adalinda.


  • Raiden is Japanese for "thunder and lightning."
  • Like Ash's Pikachu, Raiden has some moves that he cannot learn in the games.
