Electabuzz (Japanese: エレブー Erebuu) is an Electric-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I.


Electabuzz is a type of bipedal feline-like Pokémon with bright yellow coloring and black stripes. It has lightning bolt shapes on its body and large forearms. Some of its feline properties are its long tail and large fangs. Its two legs are short, and its feet are large with two sharp claws on either one. The more human aspects of its appearance are its long arms and five digit hands.

Special abilities

All Electabuzz possess the ability Static which allows the opponent to have a one-third chance to become paralyzed when it uses a physical attack on Electabuzz. Electabuzz's body is filled with electricity which can sometimes cause accidental blackouts. It is said that its body glows whitish-blue hue when in the dark.

Electabuzz is a master of Electric-type moves but can also use Physical and Elemental punches, such as Brick Break.


Electabuzz is the evolved form of Elekid. Elekid evolves into Electabuzz at level 30, and its evolved form is Electivire, which it evolves into via trade with the Electirizer.

In the anime

One of the most notable Electabuzz anime appearances is Paul's Electabuzz. Similar to Paul's relationship with Ash, Electabuzz is a rival to Ash's Pikachu and Ash's Infernape.

Dr. Namba has an Electabuzz which he used to fight Ash's Pikachu and Ritchie's Sparky.

  • Electabuzz and its pre-evolution Elekid share the same species as Zapdos.
  • Electabuzz and Magmar can be seen as parallels. Both are Pokémon from the first generation, both of their pre-evolved forms, Magby and Elekid, were introduced in Generation II, and both evolve into Magmar and Electabuzz at level 30. Their evolved forms, Magmortar and Electivire, were also introduced in Generation IV and evolve by holding an item that ends in -rizer and trading them.
  • Jynx can be seen as a slight parallel to the two except it does not evolve into any other Pokémon.
