This Tynamo is an Electric-type Pokémon owned by Elesa.


After Ash's Pikachu managed to defeat Elesa's Emolga, Elesa sent her Tynamo. Despite its unimpressive appearance and limited moveset, Tynamo has proven itself to be a formidable opponent, using its impressive speed to hit Pikachu. Pikachu used Thunderbolt on the ground, which whipped Tynamo into a distress, causing it to charge. Pikachu defeated Tynamo using Iron Tail, thus making Ash win the Gym match.[2]

Ash remembered battling the Unova Gym Leaders, including Elesa and her Tynamo, the night before he entered the Unova League.[3]
