Elekid #239


Elekid is a yellow Pokémon with black stripes on its body. Elekid’s arms are large in comparison to its size, and it possesses three claws rather than fingers. It has two stripes that extend all the way around its arms. On top of its head, it has two horns that resemble the prongs of a plug, complete with holes on their sides. When Elekid is completely charged, these horns shine bluish-white. Elekid’s chest is marked with a black lightning bolt. There are two rows of stripes at the marking, and the pattern continues across its lower back. It has black legs and feet that are rounded and toeless.

Elekid becomes restless and unruly when it hears the sound of a rainstorm approaching, and it enjoys playing in the center of thunderstorms. It generates energy by moving its arms, but it quickly tired and can only charge a limited quantity. Elekid is unable to store the power it creates, so it prefers to break into human homes and absorb electricity from their electrical outlets. It is found in grasslands.
