Electrode (Japanese: マルマイン Marumain) is an Electric-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

Biology

Physiology

Electrode is a spherical Pokémon that bears a resemblance to an upside-down PokéBall. Its top half is white, and its bottom half is red. Electrode has two small beady black eyes, large prominent eyebrows, and a wide mischievously grinning mouth.

Behavior

Electrode is an unpredictable and volatile Pokémon that will explode with little or no stimuli or provocation. It stores much electricity inside its spherical body, and often drifts on winds, full to bursting with stored electricity. It is feared by many due to its explosive and unpredictable nature.

Evolution

Electrode is the evolved form of Voltorb, as of level 30.

Trivia

  • Electrode and Voltorb are similar to a battery. One side could be positive and the other negative.
  • In HeartGold and SoulSilver, if the player has Electrode traveling alongside them, if they talk to it inside the Rocket Hideout one may receive a message say "Electrode is trembling" possibly indicating it is either scared or agitated being there likely due to Team Rocket's using Electrode to power their machine. As for the Electrode that can be captured inside the Rocket Hideout, it is possible they are remembering the treatment it endured while enslaved by Team Rocket.
  • In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Electrode is an assistant Pokémon, blowing up and  causing massive damage; however it does damage to both you and your opponent.
