Riachu may not be everyone’s favorite Pokémon, always living in Pikachu’s tiny shadow, but in my opinion Sal did a great job stepping up from Pikachu’s rough feature’s with his Riachu. The happy Riachu has much better shading than the defecating Pikachu, and it has a better, less overweight shape. Sal also did an excellent job fitting Riachu well inside the post-it note, something he typically did not manage as evidenced by Raticate and Arbok. The post it note is a bit smudged, a clear sign of the effort Sal put into the Pokémon.
