Electroweb (Japanese: エレキネット ElecNet) is a damage-dealing Electric-type move introduced in Generation V. It was the signature move of Joltik and Galvantula in Black and White.

Effect

Electroweb inflicts damage and then lowers the target's Speed stat by one stage. Electroweb hits all opponents in Double Battles and all adjacent opponents in Triple Battles. However, when Electroweb hits multiple targets, it deals less damage.
