Zebstrika (Japanese: ゼブライカ Zebraika) is an Electric-type Pokémon.

It evolves from Blitzle starting at level 27.

Biology

Zebstrika is a zebra-like Pokémon. Its coat is black with white, jagged stripes all over its body. There is one pointed stripe extending from its nose, two elaborate stripes on its neck and chest, one zigzag stripe each on its jaws, back, and hindquarters, one triangular stripe on each of its thighs, and two stripes banding each of its legs. Its ears are triangular with blue insides, while its eyes are blue with yellow sclera and white eyelashes. Its nose is black, and its hooves are gray. A white, spiked mane runs the length of its body, beginning with two horn-like extensions on its forehead and running down its back to end in a long tail with a starburst-shaped tip. This irritable Pokémon fires lightning bolts from its mane when angry. Zebstrika can move as quickly as lightning, releasing thunderclaps at full gallop.

Trivia

  • Zebstrika shares its species name with Electivire. They are both known as the Thunderbolt Pokémon.
    • It is one of a few Pokémon whose species name in English is the same as the name of a move.
  • Zebstrika is the only Pokémon with a base stat total of 497.

Origin

Zebstrika appears to be based on a zebra. It may also be based on two of Helios's steeds that pulled his chariot—Bronte and Sterope—which are Greek for thunder and lightning, respectively, as Zebstrika's species in Japanese can be translated as the "Thunder and Lightning Pokémon."

Name origin

Zebstrika may be a combination of zebra and strike. It may also be combined with a corruption of eléctrica (Spanish for feminine electric).

Zebraika may be a combination of zebra and 雷火 raika (flash of lightning).
