Trivia

  • In some copies of Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire, using Thunderbolt or Thunder may cause the game to freeze during the moves' animation sequences. This can be remedied by turning off the Battle effects in the options menu.
  • In the console games, Thunderbolt is shown going straight forward to the foes' Pokémon, while in the handheld games it is shown going straight down.
  • Because of Ash's Pikachu using this move since some of the earliest episodes of the anime, it is one of the most featured moves throughout the entire series.
  • Thunderbolt's Japanese name (10まんボルト) corresponds with Raichu's Pokédex entries which state that its Electric attacks can reach up to 100,000 volts of electricity.
  • In Pokémon Red and Green, the battle effect for Thunderbolt contains several more, shorter flashes compared to the animation in the international Pokémon Red and Blue. The move animation was likely toned down to prevent epileptic seizures.
  • In Climbing the Walls Ash revealed that Thunderbolt is his favorite Move.
