Jolteon (Japanese: サンダース Sandaasu) is a Electric-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

Biology

Physiology

Jolteon is a quadrupedal mammalian Pokémon with some traits of a herding dog as seen in Get Along, Little Pokémon, when Ethan used Jolteon as a "sheep dog" to herd the Magnemite. Jolteon's body is covered in spiny bright yellow fur. It has long ears resembling a rabbit, deep purple almond-shaped eyes, and a blunt cat-like muzzle with a small black triangular nose. It has a spiky white mane encircling its neck. Its legs and paws are slender and fox-like, with three toes on each and no visible claws; however, in The Electric Tale of Pikachu manga, Sparky's Jolteon is shown to be able to extend and retract its claws like a cat. Jolteon has a spiny fringe of fur covering its backside, and it has a small short spike-like tail that is not often visible (but seen in games such as Pokémon Stadium). Its back legs seems to be powerfully-built, allowing it to run at high speeds like a cheetah.

Special abilities

Jolteon have the ability Volt Absorb. This allows Jolteon to absorb any Electric-type move and heal itself. Jolteon is able to gather negative ions from the atmosphere, using the resulting electricity to create lightning bolts of up to 10,000 volts. Its individual cells also create small electrical charges on their own, which combined with the static electricity caused by its body can result in powerful electric-type attacks. It is very sensitive and temperamental, which causes it to constantly charge as it quickly changes moods. It can also make lightning and cause small thunderstorms. When threatened or angered, its fur stands on end and becomes sharp bristles, and it will fire these electrified needles from its body. Like cheetahs and jackrabbits, Jolteon are known for their incredible speed.

Evolution

Jolteon is one of the eight evolutions of Eevee. Its evolution is caused by the radiation from a Thunder Stone.

Trivia

  • Jolteon is the only one of Eevee's forms that doesn't appear to have a tail.
  • Jolteon has the highest speed stat out of all the Eeveelutions.

Origin

Like all Eeveelutions, Jolteon shares characteristics to various mammalian creatures such as vulpine, feline, and canines alike. Jolteon also bares fast traits like a cheetah, an animal also known for its speed.

Etymology

Jolteon's English name comes from "jolt" and "eon", much like Flareon and Vaporeon. Also, its Japanese name, Saandazu, which is read Thunders, is a pun about its electrical nature.
