Electric Terrain (Japanese: エレキフィールド Elec Field) is a non-damaging Electric-type move introduced in Generation VI.


Electric Terrain creates terrain that envelops the field and replaces the background environment and any other terrain that is already in effect. The terrain fades after five turns.

This terrain has the following effects on Pokémon that are on the ground and not in the semi-invulnerable turn of a move.

  • It prevents affected Pokémon from being afflicted by sleep or Yawn.
    • If an affected Pokémon is already drowsy due to Yawn, it is prevented from falling asleep.
    • Rest will fail if used by an affected Pokémon.
  • It increases the damage done by Electric-type moves used by affected Pokémon by 50% (regardless of whether the target of the move is affected by Electric Terrain).

If Electric Terrain is in effect, Nature Power becomes Thunderbolt, Secret Power uses the animation of Thunder Shock and may cause paralysis, and Camouflage causes the user to become Electric-type. Natural objects disappear and cannot be destroyed while Electric Terrain is in effect.

Pokémon with the Ability Surge Surfer have their Speed stat doubled when under the effects of Electric Terrain.

Clemont's Luxray The Future Is Now, Thanks to Determination! Debut
310 Manectric Manectric's body becomes covered in yellow electricity, and it fires a beam of electricity from its body at the opponent. The electricity then forms into a dome-shaped cage of electricity around the opponent. When the cage appears, it will hurt the opponent, and if the opponent touches the cage, they will get hurt again.
