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

  • 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.
  • 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.

Origin

Although Electrode resembles an upside-down PokéBall, it is based on a bomb or landmine. It might also draw inspiration from the phenomenon of ball lightning, as it is known to drift through the atmosphere and explode when it is full of electricity.

Etymology

Electrode's name appears to come from the actual word "electrode", which is a conductor through which electricity enters or leaves. It might also be a combination of "electric" and "explode".
