Trivia

Electrabuzz and their evolutionanry line seems to be closely related to that Magmar. Both lines have pokemon that were introduced in the 1st generation, baby evolutions from the 2nd generation, and final evolutions in the 4th generation, both which evolve with use of an item with "izer" at the end. In addition, all of the pokemon of the same evolutionary stage have consecutive numbers in the national dex.

Origin

Name origin

Electabuzz's name seems to be a combination of electric and buzz, possibly in a reference to the humming sound of electricity. Its Japanese name is likely a combination of electric and ぶんぶん bunbun, buzz.

Electabuzz was likely based on one of the Japanese oni who was a horned ogre who wore tiger-stripes and was sometimes depicted as a god of lightning and thunder.
