Park “Sejun” Se-jun rose to fame by winning the 2014 Pokémon World Championships with the help of an unlikely partner in Pachirisu. Ever since his Electric-type squirrel tanked a Draco Meteor from Jeudy “SoulSur” Azzarelli’s Salamence, Sejun has been effectively synonymous with the Sinnoh region’s Pikachu clone.
As a result, it is fitting that Sejun would tackle the Hisui region with a team full of Pachirisu. Sejun recently shared a picture of his Pokémon Legends: Arceus team on Twitter, which appears to include a number of Alpha variants of his longtime partner Pokémon.

Sejun is no stranger to rocking with Pachirisu, even outside of the context of competitive matches. He previously used a full team of Pachirisu to beat Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl versions. Even more impressive, he did so without grinding to raise his Pachirisu’s levels and without using any items in battle.
Not grinding or using items in battle made this challenge one of the most hardcore Pokemon experiences I had, just incredibly happy and satisfied that I actually did it!
Big thanks to everyone who tuned in!

More about Sejun and Pachirisu
Pachirisu was undoubtedly the star of Sejun’s 2014 World Championship team. He trained the Pokémon to be surprisingly bulky so that it could redirect and tank hits using Follow Me in order to protect Sejun’s more offensive team members. His Pachirisu accompanied a roster that also included Gothitelle, Gardevoir, Gyarados, Talonflame and Garchomp.
Fortunately for Sejun, the Sinnoh native Pachirisu is available fairly early on in the Hisui region. In Pokémon Legends: Arceus, Pachirisu resides in Droning Meadow in the Crimson Mirelands. As a result, any trainers wishing to follow Sejun’s lead can fill out their teams in the game’s second area.
Though he is most famous for being a Pokémon World Champion, Sejun also has a presence in the more broad esports world. He is ranked in the top 10 on the South Korean Super Smash Bros. Ultimate power rankings and he is sponsored by T1. His fans can regularly catch him streaming various Pokémon games on his Twitch channel.
