Super Smash Bros. series
In the Super Smash Bros. series Pokémon appear in battles as items in the form of Poké Balls. In S.S.B.B. (Brawl) Electrode will use self-destruct. Electrode's body will have start becoming red indicating it's about to blow, however it can only be picked up when it's about to explode meaning it is hard to throw it. Sometimes it will even short-circuit, making steam come from it, after this it will start again and explode much faster.
