Thunder Punch (Japanese: かみなりパンチ Thunder Punch), formatted as ThunderPunch prior to Pokémon X and Y, is a damage-dealing Electric-type move introduced in Generation I. It was TM41 in Generation II.

Effect

Generation I

ThunderPunch does damage and has a 10% chance of paralyzing the opponent. ThunderPunch cannot paralyze Electric-type Pokémon.

Generations II to V

ThunderPunch can now paralyze Electric-type Pokémon.

ThunderPunch can be used as part of a Pokémon Contest combination, with the user gaining extra four appeal points if either Charge or Ice Punch was used in the prior turn. It can also be used to start a combination, causing Fire Punch and Ice Punch to give extra four appeal points if used in the next turn.

Generation VI onward

Thunder Punch can no longer paralyze Electric-type Pokémon once again, due to them now being immune to paralysis.

Thunder Punch can be used as part of a Contest Spectacular combination, with the user gaining an extra three appeal points if Charge was used in the prior turn.
