Electric Terrain (Japanese: エレキフィールド Elec Field) is a non-damaging Electric-type move introduced in Generation VI. It was TM90 in Pokémon Sword and Shield, and is TM136 in Generation IX.

Effect

Generations VI to VII

Electric Terrain creates terrain that envelops the field and replaces the background environment and any other terrain that is already in effect. The terrain fades after five turns.

This terrain has the following effects on Pokémon that are on the ground and not in the semi-invulnerable turn of a move.

  • It boosts the power of Electric-type moves used by affected Pokémon by 50% (regardless of whether the target of the move is affected by Electric Terrain). This boost includes moves that became Electric type due to type-changing moves like Electrify.
  • It prevents affected Pokémon from being afflicted by sleep or Yawn.
    • If an affected Pokémon is already drowsy due to Yawn, it is prevented from falling asleep and the drowsy effect will end.
    • Rest will fail if used by an affected Pokémon.
  • Nature Power becomes Thunderbolt.
  • Secret Power uses the animation of Thunder Shock and has a 30% chance of causing paralysis.
  • Camouflage causes the user to become Electric-type.

Natural objects disappear and cannot be destroyed while Electric Terrain is in effect.

When a Pokémon with the Ability Electric Surge enters battle, Electric Terrain is automatically created. Pokémon with the Ability Surge Surfer have their Speed stat doubled when under the effects of Electric Terrain.

If a Terrain Extender is held when Electric Terrain is used, the terrain will last 8 turns instead of 5. If a Pokémon is holding an Electric Seed while the field is Electric Terrain, it consumes the Electric Seed and its Defense is increased by one stage (even if it is not otherwise affected by the terrain).

Electric Terrain is removed if Defog or Splintered Stormshards are used.

If powered up by an Electrium Z into Z-Electric Terrain, the user's Speed stat is raised by one stage.

Generation VIII onwards

Electric Terrain now:

Electric Terrain is automatically created when Max Lightning is used or by Pokémon with the Ability Hadron Engine, and in the latter's case, will boost the Pokémon's Special Attack stat by 33% (or more precisely, by a factor of 5461/4096), even if the user is not on the ground. G-Max Wind Rage, Steel Roller and Ice Spinner remove Electric Terrain and any other terrain upon being used. The latter move will also fail if Electric Terrain or other terrains are absent.
