Electrike (Japanese: ラクライ Rakurai) is an Template:Type2 Pokémon.

It evolves into Manectric starting at level 26.

Biology

Physiology

Electrike are small, green, dog-like Pokémon with yellow markings. Four fangs are discernible when their mouth is open, with two on the upper jaw and two on the lower. Electrike have a small pointed yellow-tipped tail, and as its hind legs have spikes on the heels, in certain positions it gives the appearance of Electrike possessing three tails. Its forelegs and chin also have spiky extensions, but their most distinctive feature would be their large head crest, which has angular lightning-like patterning on the sides, with a continuation of the yellow coloration down their snout. Electrike’s additional yellow coloration would include the stripe down its back, its half moon-shaped paw pads on its forefeet and its circular paw pads on its hind feet.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

The electricity found in Electrike's body is obtained from the friction that occurs when it runs at incredible speeds. It is stored in its fur, and can be released at the Pokémon's will. This allows it to use moves like Spark from the static electricity found in its fur, which also activates one of its abilities, Static. It can also learn to wield a Flamethrower attack.

Behavior

Electrike is a Pokémon with an affinity to movement and agility. It is affected by weather, letting out sparks whenever a storm approaches. Its body will also blaze with showers of sparks in seasons of especially arid air.

As Electrike stores electricity in its fur, it is advisable it brush it frequently. When grooming Electrike, one should not use a metal brush, as the metal will conduct the electrical charge in the fur and subsequently shock the handler. Like other Pokémon in the possession of Trainers, Electrike are depicted to enjoy being brushed, with the proper techniques in mind.

Electrike in the anime

Electrike first appeared in Watt's with Wattson?. After Wattson was easily defeated by Ash Ketchum during the Gym Match, Wattson needed some time alone. During this, an Electrike came to comfort the Mauville City Gym Leader. Wattson decided to keep the electrical canine as one of his own Pokémon.

Electrike also appeared in The Electrike Company! under the ownership of Jaco. Though Jaco thought that Electrike wasn't that strong and wouldn't pass a test, Ash and friends helped Electrike control its power, resulting in it evolving into a Manectric.

A wild Electrike appeared in Camping It Up!.

Trivia

  • Electrike shares the same species name with Jolteon. They are both known as Lightning Pokémon.
  • Electrike's shiny sprite's color may also be noted to be very similar to its evolution, Manectric's normal form's color tone.
  • As of Generation V, Electrike is the only green Template:Type2 Pokémon.
    • Mow Rotom is also green, but not prodominantly.

Origin

Electrike may be based on a maned wolf pup and a youkai of Japanese lore, the 雷獣 Raijū, an elemental lightning creature that can take on the shape of various mammals.

Name origin

Electrike's name may be a combination of electric and strike, or "trike".

Rakurai literally means 落雷, bolt of lightning.

In other languages

  • French: Dynavolt - Comes from dynamo, an electrical generator, and volt, the unit for electrical potential and electromotive force.
  • German: Frizelbliz
  • Korean: 썬더라이 Thunderrai
  • Chinese (Taiwan): 落雷獸 Luò Léi Shòu - From its Japanese name. Combination of 落雷 rakurai and 雷獣 raijū. Literally "Thunder beast".
