Electro Ball (Japanese: エレキボール Elecball) is a damage-dealing Electric-type move introduced in Generation V.

Effect

Electro Ball inflicts more damage the faster the user is compared to the target. Therefore, the larger the relative difference between the user's and target's Speed stat, the greater the damage. Base power is calculated as follows:

Foe's Speed Power
More than 50% 60
50% - 34% 80
33% - 25% 120
Less than 25% 150


Generation VI

Electro Ball has no effect on Pokémon with Bulletproof.
