Volt Tackle (ボルテッカー Volteccer) is an Electric-type physical move. It is known for being a move that is exclusive to the Pikachu family of Pokémon.

Games

  • Volt Tackle is one of Pichu's, Pikachu's and Raichu's strongest attacks. It is learned by breeding a member of the Pikachu family with another one with a Light Ball.
  • Volt Tackle is an Electric type move, with 120 power and 100 accuracy. It is a Physical move.
  • Volt Tackle can cause paralysis, but also delivers to the user 1/3 of the damage inflicted. This move in power is equal to Thunder, but Volt Tackle has a 100 accuracy, where as Thunder has a 70 accuracy. The other difference between the two attacks is that Volt Tackle has recoil, where Thunder does not.
  • Pichu's, Pikachu's and Raichu's Volt Tackle is more powerful than Thunder, because they tend to increase more attack than Sp. Attack.
  • In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Volt Tackle is Pikachu's Final Smash.

How to obtain

  • To get a Pichu that knows Volt Tackle, you must breed a female Pikachu that is holding the Light Ball with another Pokémon that is in its Egg Group. Your Pichu will hatch with Volt Tackle being known. Or, you can breed a Pichu with a Ditto and female Pikachu.
  • In Generation IV. Get a male Cherrim and a female Pikachu, put both in the day-care, and have Pikachu hold the Light Ball. Now, you should then have a Pichu that knows volt tackle.

Trivia

  • Its Japanese name, Volteccer, is based on the signature move of the character Pulseman. Long before Game Freak made Pokémon, they created Pulseman, a Sega Genesis game. It should also be noted that Team Galactic and Rotom are also homages to Pulseman (Team Galactic based on Galaxy Gang, the main antagonists of Pulseman; and Rotom looks slightly like him—it can even go from the digital world to the "real world" and back in a similar fashion).
