Trivia

  • Zebstrika shares the same species name with Electivire. They are both known as Thunderbolt Pokémon.
    • It is one of a few Pokémon whose species name in English is the same as the name of a move.
  • Zebstrika is the only Pokémon that has a base stat total of 497.

Origin

Zebstrika appears to be based on a zebra. It may also be based on two of Helios's steeds that pulled his chariot—Bronte and Sterope—which are Greek for thunder and lightning, respectively, as Zebstrika's species in Japanese can be translated as the "Thunder and Lightning Pokémon."

Name origin

Zebstrika may be a combination of zebra and strike. It may also be combinated with a corruption of eléctrica (Spanish for femenine electric).

Zebraika may be a combination of zebra and 雷火 raika (flash of lightning).
