{{Type|Electric}}-[[Types|type]] [[Pokémon (species)|Pokémon]] ('''Lighting'''-type in the TCG) have electricity-oriented powers. This category is usually represented by [[Pikachu]], as Pikachu is the most famous [[Pokémon]] of the Electric types, and possibly the most famous out of all Pokémon.
+
The '''{{type|Electric}} [[Types|type]]''' ('''でんきタイプ''' ''Denki taipu'' in Japanese) is one of the eighteen [[Pokémon Types|Pokémon elemental types]].
   
Electric-type attacks usually have a chance of causing the [[Status Effects#Paralysis|Paralyze]] status effect, which gives the affected Pokémon a severe [[Speed]] statistic reduction along with a 25% chance of being unable to move for a turn.
+
The Electric type is a type of Pokémon that have electricity-oriented powers. They control electricity, store it, or even produce it.
   
Electric Pokémon represent electricity, electrical energy, and light (as many electric Pokémon can learn [[Flash]]). Many Electric types are known for living near, around, or sometimes in areas of human inhabitation (possibly due to the large amount of electricity people use). Some electric Pokémon, like [[Voltorb]] and [[Magnemite]], resemble artificial objects used by humans (Voltorb's resemble Poké Balls, and the Magnemite family have what appear to be screws and magnets attached to their bodies). In [[Generation IV]], Electric has the least type pairings, as only {{Type|Water}}, {{Type|Steel}}, {{Type|Flying}}, and {{Type|Ghost}} have been paired with it. In [[Generation V]], however, the Electric type gains several more type pairings.
+
Electric-type Pokémon have varied habitats, from forests, praries, cities and power plants. Electric-type Pokémon are usually fast, and many of their attacks may [[Paralysis|paralyze]] the target. Some Electric-type Pokémon also resemble artifical objects used by humans that can relate to electricity.
   
Electric Pokémon are also synonymous for speed, many electric types having high speed stats.
+
Some of the Electric-type Pokémon Trainers are [[Lt. Surge]], the third Gym Leader of [[Kanto]]; [[Wattson]], the third Gym Leader of [[Hoenn]]; [[Volkner]], the last [[Sinnoh]] Gym Leader; [[Elesa]] the fourth Gym Leader of [[Unova]]; and [[Clemont]], the fifth Gym Leader of [[Kalos]].

Type Electric

The Electric type (でんきタイプ Denki taipu in Japanese) is one of the eighteen Pokémon elemental types.

The Electric type is a type of Pokémon that have electricity-oriented powers. They control electricity, store it, or even produce it.

Electric-type Pokémon have varied habitats, from forests, praries, cities and power plants. Electric-type Pokémon are usually fast, and many of their attacks may paralyze the target. Some Electric-type Pokémon also resemble artifical objects used by humans that can relate to electricity.

Some of the Electric-type Pokémon Trainers are Lt. Surge, the third Gym Leader of Kanto; Wattson, the third Gym Leader of Hoenn; Volkner, the last Sinnoh Gym Leader; Elesa the fourth Gym Leader of Unova; and Clemont, the fifth Gym Leader of Kalos.

Relations with other typesEdit

  • They're weak against the Ground type because in real life, the ground is a natural sink of electrons.
  • They're strong against the Flying type because while in the air, they don't make contact with the ground, so they can't divert the electricity, so they're susceptible to strong electrical currents and it's easy for a thunder to hit something that's flying.
  • They're strong against the Water type because water is a natural electricity conductor, and if one is in the water, it gets electrocuted as well.
  • The Dragon type resists them because in old legends, dragons were immune to the nature forces, electricity included.
  • The Grass type resists them because plants and trees are made of materials that don't conduct electricity, like wood and rubber. Also, trees divert the electricity to the ground with their roots.
  • They resist the Steel type because all kinds of metals are electricity conductors.
