Blitzle is a small white on black zebra like Pokémon. It has a very spiky mane with a single lightning bolt-shaped cluster of hair sticking out between its small ears. Its tail is very short for a hooved mammal. It has yellow and blue eyes, and a very large black spot on its snout, probably a nose. Its small ears have blue insides.


Blitzle evolves into Zebstrika at level 27.
