523 Zebstrika Zebstrika charges at the opponent. As it does, it pulls up its legs so it is flying through the air at the opponent. Its body then becomes surrounded in bright gold electricity with white static around it, making its body seem gold and brown. It then soars at the opponent and slams into it. When it hits the opponent, the electricity around it disappears and gathers where Zebstrika collided with the opponent, forming into a white orb of sparkling energy. The orb of energy then explodes. As it soars at the opponent, it leaves behind a stream of gold electricity.
Elesa's Zebstrika Enter Elesa, Electrifying Gym Leader! Debut
642 Thundurus A spark of light blue electricity comes off Thundurus's body and it becomes surrounded in sparkling light blue electricity. Thundurus then flies towards the opponent at top speed and slams into it. As it charges, it leaves behind a trail of light blue electricity, and when Thundurus is inside the electricity, its body looks dark and light blue. When Thundurus slams into the opponent, the sparkling electricity explodes, knocking the opponent back and leaving Thundurus surrounded in plain light blue electricity.
