Elekid (Japanese: エレキッド Erekiddo) is an Electric-type Baby Pokémon introduced in Generation II.

Biology

Physiology

Elekid is mainly yellow with black stripes across its body and one lightning bolt shape on its stomach. Its forearms are large with three small claws at the ends and its legs are short and stubby. Elekid's most notable feature is the horns on its head, which appear as the two prongs on a spark plug. Because of the prongs, no Elekid toy was manufactured because people would worry little children would possibly shock or injure themselves by plugging it in.

Special abilities

Elekid have the ability Static, which allows for a 1/3 chance that an enemy will become paralyzed if it makes a physical attack.

Elekid have the natural ability to produce electricity, which is the backing for most of its attacks.

Evolution

Elekid evolves into Electabuzz once it reaches level 30. Electabuzz evolves into Electivire via Trade while it holds Electirizer.
