Voltorb (Japanese: ビリリダマ Biriridama) is an Electric-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

## AppearanceEdit

Voltorb are Pokémon that look like a large Poké Ball. Spherical in shape, Voltorb's top half is colored red while its bottom half is white. Voltorb do not have much else in features besides its eyes, which usually indicate that it is angry.

## Special abilitiesEdit
