Elekid (Japanese: エレキッド Elekid) is an Template:Type2 baby Pokémon.

It evolves into Electabuzz starting at level 30, who evolves into Electivire via trade with an Electirizer.

Biology

Physiology

Elekid is a yellow, round-bodied Pokémon with black stripes and accentuations. Unlike its evolutions, Elekid is lacking in both a tail and toes. Elekid's arms are bulkier in proportion to its body than those of its evolved forms, and, unlike its evolutions, it has three claws instead of fingers. Like its evolutions, it has stripes on its arms, the two of which continue all the way around. Elekid has two horns on top of its head that are shaped like the prongs of a plug, even with holes in their sides, making Elekid look like a walking power plug. Elekid has a black lightning bolt marking on its chest. Two rows of stripes are near the marking on the sides of its thighs, with the pattern continuing around its lower back. Elekid’s legs are black in coloration, and its feet are rounded and toeless, somewhat resembling shoes.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Elekid is able to know attacks which its evolution, Electabuzz, can learn. The only exception is that Elekid is unable to learn Hyper Beam or Giga Impact.

Behavior

Elekid tend to play out in the middle of thunderstorms. Elekid rotates its arms to generate electricity, but it tires easily, so it is only able to charge up a small amount.

Habitat

Elekid normally live in power plants.

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

Elekid mainly feed off electrical currents.

Major appearances

Paul's Elekid

Paul owned an Elekid. He used it to battle to battle Ash's Pikachu in When Pokémon Worlds Collide! and Roark in Shapes of Things to Come. Paul's Elekid evolved into Electabuzz in Smells Like Team Spirit, and evolved into Electivire off-screen, prior to DP184.

Other

Elekid's prongs in a drawing

A drawing of Elekid's prongs by Tracey appeared in Misty Meets Her Match.

Elekid first real appearance was in Pikachu's Rescue Adventure and appears to be an old friend of Pikachu. The little Electric Pokémon decided to assist Pikachu and co. in finding Togepi. Elekid even stood by Pikachu's side when he was trying to prevent lightning from striking the Giant Tree.

Casey captured an Elekid in Here's Lookin' at You, Elekid. It is one of her favorite Pokémon and was seen with her in A Date With Delcatty and Those Darn Electabuzz.

In Reversing the Charges, an Elekid had absorbed a high amount of lightning and was electrifying every other Pokémon in sight. The AC Powerplug Pokémon calmed down and returned to its good old self after battling Ash's Pikachu.

An Elekid appeared in Three Sides to Every Story!, who, along with Piplup, fell in love with a Marill.

Minor appearances

An Elekid was used by one of the students of the Pokémon Trainer's School in Gonna Rule The School!.

An Elekid appeared under the ownership of Mitchell in One Team, Two Team, Red Team, Blue Team!.

Crystal It loves violent thunder. The space between its horns flickers bluish-white when it is charging energy.
Stadium 2 It rotates its arms to generate electricity, but it tires easily, so it charges up only a little bit.
Generation III
Ruby Elekid stores electricity in its body. If it touches metal and accidentally discharges all its built-up electricity, this Pokémon begins swinging its arms in circles to recharge itself.
Sapphire
Emerald If it touches metal and discharges the electricity it has stored in its body, an Elekid begins swinging its arms in circles to recharge itself.

Trivia

  • Elekid's Pokédex entries between Generations III and IV are contradictory on whether Elekid can store electrical energy in its body.
  • Nintendo was concerned about making Elekid toys because children might put the prongs into a power outlet, which could electrocute the child.
  • Although it has no visible tail, Elekid can learn Iron Tail.
  • Elekid's normal and Shiny colors were switched in the games from Generation III onward.
    • However, in its Sugimori artwork and in the anime, its color stayed the same.

Origin

Elekid is based on U.S. and Japanese domestic AC power plugs.

Name origin

Elekid's name is a combination of electric and kid.

In other languages

  • German: Elekid
  • French: Elekid
  • Korean: 에레키드 Erekideu (in game), 엘레키드 Elekid (in anime)
