Dedenne is a rodent-like bipedal Pokémon with a spherical body. It features black eyes, round black ears with pale yellow interiors, a petite snout, and a prominent upper incisor with a little tip. A round, dark orange mark with two black whiskers appears on each cheek. Upper whiskers feature branches that resemble antennae, whilst lower whiskers are plain. It has a dark black stripe along its back and a light yellow belly. It has short limbs with three fingers on each paw and a long, slender black tail with a fur tuft at the tip.

Dedenne’s top whiskers act as antennas, transmitting and receiving electrical signals. This enables it to communicate with others of its type over long distances, share food or electrical places, and feel its environment. Lower whiskers are small organs that may shoot electricity. It cannot, however, create a large amount of power on its own. By connecting its tail into outlets, it receives power from other electric Pokémon or from structures. As a consequence, the house of the resident it absorbs suffers from excessive power expenses.
