Electrode (Japanese: マルマイン Marumine) is an Electric-type Pokémon.

Biology

Physiology

This Pokémon resembles a Poké Ball. For this reason, many trainers try to pick it up in the Power Plant, mistaking it for an item. Electrode has made many appearances in the series, and even some appearances in Super Smash Brothers and Super Smash Brothers Melee.

Gender differences

This Pokémon is genderless.

Special abilities

The more electric energy Electrode consumes, the faster it moves.

Behavior

Electrode tend to live in power plants where fresh electricity is being generated. As a result, this Pokémon often causes blackouts. Electrode explodes in response to even the smallest stimuli. It is known to explode when bored just to entertain itself.

Habitat

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

In the anime

Electrode's first appearance was during The Flame Pokémon-athon. It was used in a Pokémon Race.

When Team Rocket was trying to infiltrate Prof. Oak's lab in Showdown at the Poké Corral, the fell into a pit of Electrode.

In Pikachu's Summer Vacation, an Electrode's explosion signaled the start of a swimming race between Ash's Squirtle and a Marril.

Orange Islands' Gym Leader Danny has an Electrode.

Electrode's first major role was during The Underground Round Up. A town was over-populated with these Bomb-Ball Pokémon and a man named Poncho had a job of removing them.

In What You Seed is What You Get, an Electrode that was painted like a Watermelon was guarding a patch of Watmel Berries.

In Pinch Healing, Jessie unintentionally and indirectly caused an Electrode to fall and explode on a bus that a Poké-sitter was driving.

In the manga

In the Pokémon Special manga

Electrode makes a cameo aboard the S.S. Anne in Danger: High Voltorb as one of Lt. Surge's Pokémon ready to attack Red.

Other appearances

Super Smash Brothers Melee

When released from a Pokéball, Electrode will pause for a few seconds before using explosion. It can be picked up and thrown, though this is risky as Electrode will hurt everyone near it, including the player who threw the Pokéball.

Blue
Yellow Stores electrical energy inside its body. Even the slightest shock could trigger a huge explosion.

Silver It stores an overflowing amount of electric energy inside its body. Even a small shock makes it explode.
Crystal The more energy it charges up, the faster it gets. But this also makes it more likely to explode.

Generation III
Ruby Electrode eats electricity in the atmosphere. On days when lightning strikes, you can see this Pokémon exploding all over the place from eating too much electricity.
Sapphire One of Electrode's characteristics is its attraction to electricity. It is a problematical Pokémon that congregates mostly at electrical power plants to feed on electricity that has just been generated.
Emerald They appear in great numbers at electric power plants. Because they feed on electricity, they cause massive and chaotic blackouts in nearby cities.

Trivia

Origin

It seems to be based upon the concept of a living Poké Ball, and is often mistaken for one.

Name origin

An electrode is a device through which electrical current passes. Considering Electrode's tendency to self-destruct, it might also be a combination of electric and explode. Its Japanese name is probably a combination of 丸 maru, circle, and mine, as in landmine.
