10. Chinchou

Chinchou has a small blue body and two antennae sprouting from its head, both of which have a yellow globe at the end. These antennae are said to have evolved from fins. A Chinchou’s eyes are yellow and their pupils have the shape of plus signs. When blinking or closing its eyes, only the vertical parts close, making the pupils look like minus signs.

Its habitat is the dark depths of the ocean floor. In the absence of any other light, Chinchou sees its surroundings and communicates by shooting positive and negative charged electricity particles between the tips of its antennae, creating an electric current and thus light. This can be said to be a form of bioluminescence. The charges Chinchou shoots between its antennae can also be used offensively, to stun its opponents with a flash of light or shock them with electricity.


9. Voltorb

Voltorb are aggressive red and white ball shaped Pokémon that looks strikingly similar to a Poké Ball. Although it was discovered shortly after Poké Balls were invented, some believe there is a connection. Though roughly ten times larger, many trainers get a surprise when they pick one up thinking it is a Poké Ball. The strength of their explosions is dependent on how much electricity they store in their bodies.

When jarred or angered, a Voltorb can and will explode, causing massive damage to their aggressor and themselves (as seen in the video games when they use the moves “Self-Destruct” or “Explosion”, both of which causes fainting to the user). It is so unstable that even the slightest bump in the road will make it explode spontaneously. Voltorb do not have a mouth, but do have two eyes that are normally slanted into an aggressive stare.


8. Plusle

Plusle, known as the Cheering Pokémon, bears a remarkable resemblance to Pichu and Pikachu. Plusle have short tails with flat red plus signs on the end of them, while their cheeks are circular with plus signs voided in the middle. Plusle creates electrical pom-poms and sparks to cheer on its partners. Plusle’s abilities in battle are basically the same as its cousin Pikachu except that Plusle has more Special Attack power than Pikachu and is slightly faster.

However, Plusle is unable to use moves such as Volt Tackle and Slam. On the other hand, Plusle learns more support moves than Pikachu, such as Baton Pass, Fake Tears, and Copycat. Plusle is a cheerful and supportive Pokémon, always encouraging comrades in battle by using the spark pouches in its cheeks. It is very compassionate towards its friends, and is known to cry upon witnessing a friend lose a battle. They are commonly referred to as cheerleaders for these actions.


7. Electrike

Electrike, known as the Lightning Pokémon, are small, green, dog-like Pokémon with yellow markings. The electricity found in Electrike’s body is obtained from the friction that occurs when it runs at incredible speeds. It is stored in its fur, and can be released at the Pokémon’s will. It is affected by weather, letting out sparks whenever a storm approaches. Its body will also blaze with showers of sparks in seasons of especially arid air. Electrike first appeared in the anime in Watt’s with Wattson?.

After Wattson was easily defeated by Ash Ketchum during the Gym Match, Wattson needed some time alone. During this, an Electrike came to comfort the Mauville City Gym Leader. Wattson decided to keep the electrical canine as one of his own Pokémon. Electrike also appeared in The Electrike Company! under the ownership of Jaco. Though Jaco thought that Electrike wasn’t that strong and wouldn’t pass a test, Ash and friends helped Electrike control its power, resulting in it evolving into a Manectric.


6. Electivire

Electivire, known as the Thunderbolt Pokémon, is the evolution of Electabuzz that is first introduced in the last episode of Pokémon Battle Frontier. Electivire’s back has a symbol that looks similar to a socket outlet, similar to how a previous form of it, Elekid, resembled a plug. It has red eyes and also seems to resemble the yeti or sasquatch. The small red parts on the end of its pair of tails resemble red LEDs. According to its Pokédex entry, it can shoot 20,000 volts of electricity out of its tails. To get one, one must trade an Electabuzz while holding an Electrizer.

5. Pachirisu

Pachirisu is a squirrel-like Pokémon that charges electricity in the pouches of its cheeks and discharges shots from its tail. It lives in trees where it stores berries with protective static fur. In the Sinnoh hand guide, it stated that Pachirisu and Pikachu share many of the same qualities.  In the anime, Dawn caught a Pachirisu in the episode “Twice Smitten, Once Shy” where it was too much for her to handle, resulting in her deciding to release it. Later on the episode, Dawn decided she wanted it back, which she did, even though she fought with Team Rocket to get it.


4. Luxray

Luxray is a blue-and-black lion-like Pokémon that has red, gold-pupiled eyes. These are specially designed for X-ray vision, which enables this predatory Pokémon to spot hiding prey, even if hidden behind a wall. The manes of female Luxray are about a third the length of their male counterparts. Luxray is one of the bosses in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time and Explorers of Darkness. He fights with 8 Luxio by his side.


3. Zapdos

Zapdos is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak’s Pokémon franchise. Zapdos is one of the three winged mirages along with Articuno and Moltres. It was originally conceived by Game Freak’s character development team and finalized by Ken Sugimori. Its English name is a combination of “zap” and “dos”, the Spanish and Italian word for two.  

Its first appearance was in Pokémon Red and Blue, where it acts as one of the rarest Pokémon, appearing only once in the entire game. It has made several appearances since, including in the video game Super Smash Bros. Melee, and it was prominently featured in the theatrical anime film Pokémon The Movie 2000 as a central character to the plot.


2. Jolteon

Jolteon, known as the Lightning Pokémon, is one of the evolutions of Eevee that is caused by radiation from a Thunderstone. Jolteon is covered with spiky, bright yellow fur, with white spiky fur surrounding its neck. Its fur sparks with electricity constantly; it can be soft to the touch or turn into sharp needles that can be fired when it is angered. Jolteon is able to gather negative ions from the atmosphere, using the resulting electricity to create lightning bolts of up to 10,000 volts. Its individual cells also create small electrical charges on their own, which can result in powerful electric-type attacks.

It is very sensitive, which causes it to constantly charge as it quickly changes moods. Jolteon first appeared in the anime in The Battling Eevee Brothers, under the ownership of Sparky. In Get Along, Little Pokémon, Ethan used a Jolteon as a sheep dog of sorts. Whenever any of Ethan’s Magnemite tried to escape, Jolteon would use Thunder Wave to lure them back. Jolteon was also seen under the ownership of one of the Kimono Sisters in Trouble’s Brewing and Espeon Not Included. In the Pokémon Adventures manga, Red temporarily controls a Jolteon, which is actually his Eevee switching between its evolved forms.


1. Pikachu

Pikachu is one of the species of Pokémon creatures from the Pokémon media franchise—a collection of video games, anime, manga, books, trading cards, and other media created by Satoshi Tajiri. As do all Pokémon, Pikachu fight other Pokémon in battles central to the anime, manga, and games of the series. Pikachu is among the most recognizable Pokémon, largely because a Pikachu is a central character in the Pokémon anime series.

Pikachu is widely considered the most popular Pokémon, is regarded as the official mascot of the Pokémon franchise, and has become an icon of Japanese culture in recent years.  Within the world of the Pokémon franchise, Pikachu are often found in houses, forests, plains, and occasionally near mountains, islands, and electrical sources (such as power plants), on most continents throughout the fictional world. As an Electric-type Pokémon, Pikachu can store electricity in its cheeks and release it in lightning-based attacks. -Wikipedia.orgHs16rHch9pttw4t2l0i-gYFvQUQnFXLMGht54YB4
