  • This is the only move whose English name starts with a non-alphabetic character.
    • This is also the only move to naturally have a sharply increased critical hit ratio.
  • The name of this move is partly based off of the Japanese name for Thunderbolt, 100,000 Volts. The 10,000,000 figure references that it is an upgrade of Thunderbolt.
  • Along with Catastropika, 10,000,000 Volt Thunderbolt is the only species-exclusive Z-Move to have a unique pose not shared with other Z-Moves of the same type. Coincidentally, both are exclusive to Pikachu.
