Electro Ball (Japanese: エレキボール Elecball) is a damage-dealing Electric-type move introduced in Generation V. It was TR80 in Pokémon Sword and Shield, and is TM072 in Generation IX.

Effect

Electro Ball inflicts more damage the faster the user is compared to the target.

Electro Ball's power is calculated as follows:

Target's Speed Power
More than 100%, or exactly 0 40
50.01% - 100% 60
33.34% - 50% 80
25.01% - 33.33% 120
0.01% - 25% 150


The Speed values used take all modifiers into account (including stat stages, paralysis, held items such as the Iron Ball, and Abilities such as Slush Rush).

Electro Ball has no effect on Pokémon with Bulletproof.

Electro Ball can also be used as part of a Contest Spectacular combination, with the user gaining extra three appeal points if a certain move (Agility, Autotomize, Calm Mind, Charge, Rock Polish, or Shell Smash) was used in the prior turn.

In other games

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series

In Gates to Infinity, as the Speed stat does not exist in the game, the difference of the user's Travel Speed and the target's Travel Speed affects damage inflicted to the target. The faster the user is (comparing Travel Speed), the more damage it does.

From Super Mystery Dungeon onward, it compares the Speed stats between the user and the target. The higher the user's Speed stat is compared to the target's, the more damage it does.

Pokémon UNITE

In Pokémon UNITE, Electro Ball is Pikachu's first move obtained at level 4 by upgrading Thunder Shock into it instead of Thunder. The user hurls an electric orb at the targeted enemy, damaging and slowing down all enemies in a small radius around the target upon impact by paralyzing them. The move deals bonus damage based on the enemy's missing HP. At level 11, its damage is increased.
