Thunder Fang

“The user bites with electrified fangs. It may also make the target flinch or leave it with paralysis.”

Thunder Fang is an electric-type attack move introduced in Generation IV.  Just like Spark it has a base power of 65, but it has a slightly lower accuracy rating of 95.  If the move hits, there is a 10% chance of the target being paralyzed – and if the attacker is faster than the target, there is also an additional 10% chance of flinching.

Electrike can learn the move at level 33 (19 since ORAS).


#309 Electrike

“It generates electricity using friction from the atmosphere. In seasons with especially arid air, its entire body blazes with violent showers of sparks.”

Electrike is a pure electric type Pokémon introduced in Generation III, and interestingly is a version exclusive for Pokémon Y in Generation VI, with Houndour taking its place in X.  It evolves into Manectric at level 26 and lives in areas with lots of grass.

Electrike generates static electricity from friction caused by its fast running speeds, storing all of this energy inside its long fur.  These electric charges also stimulate its leg muscles for it to keep running at paces that the human eye can’t follow, even though the loud noises from these crackles prove their presence otherwise.  They also get discharged during spells of dry weather, or at the onset of a storm.

Wattson, Mauville City’s Gym Leader, owned an Electrike during the events of the animé.  Not long after Ash won his Dynamo Badge and sent Wattson into a state of depression, an Electrike met him and provided comfort during his moment of solitude.  Another failed scheme from Team Rocket later, Electrike showed interest in staying by Wattson’s side and has been a treasured team member ever since.
