Tynamo (Japanese: シビシラス Shibishirasu) is an Electric-type Pokémon.

It evolves into Eelektrik starting at level 39, which evolves into Eelektross when exposed to a Thunder Stone.

Biology

Tynamo is a short, white, eel-like Pokémon with dark, oval eyes and a red, four-point star-shaped mouth. A wavy, yellow stripe runs along its body, which has a long fin membrane, giving it a tapered shape.

Tynamo has an organ that generates electricity, which it discharges when in danger. A single Tynamo does not generate much power, so groups of Tynamo move in schools and create a more powerful shock. The Pokémon Company merchandise artwork and several TCG illustrations depict Tynamo swimming in or leaping out of bodies of water.

Trivia

Origin

Tynamo and its evolutionary relatives may be based on electric eels, lampreys, jawless fish and possibly leeches or lancelets. The fact that it is Electric-type may be an allusion to bioelectrogenesis. It also resembles leptocephalus, larval stage of the eel, or also a knifefish. The waving yellow mark running along its body combined with the physical appearance overall makes certain resemblance to Haikouichthys, or even a Crookes tube or a Geissler tube. Tynamo may also be based on a Skyfish, which would explain its Levitate Ability.

Name origin

Tynamo may be a combination of tiny or tyke (referring to its small size) and dynamo (referring to its Electric type).

Shibishirasu may be a combination of 痺れ shibire (numbness) or しびれうなぎ shibireunagi (electric eel) and シラス shirasu (whitebait).
