Electrike (Japanese: ラクライ Rakurai) is an Electric-type Pokémon.

It evolves into Manectric starting at level 26.

Biology

Electrike is a green, canine Pokémon with yellow markings. It has a large head crest with angular, lightning-like markings on the the side. Its snout has a yellow blaze, and four fangs are discernible when its mouth is open. It has a yellow stripe down its back. Each of its four legs has a spike, with the ones on its hind legs being longer. It has yellow crescent-shaped paw pads on its front feet, while the pads on its hind feet are circular. It has a small, pointed, yellow-tipped tail.

Using the electric charge found in its fur, Electrike stimulates its leg muscles and runs faster than the human eye can follow. It uses friction from the atmosphere to generate electricity. Because of this, its body gives off showers of sparks in seasons with arid air or before a storm. As shown in the anime, using metal brushes to groom the Electrike will cause the metal to conduct the electrical charge in the fur and subsequently shock the handler. It lives in grassy areas.

Major appearances

Wattson's Electrike

Electrike first appeared in the main series in Watt's with Wattson? After Wattson was easily defeated by Ash Ketchum during the Gym Match, Wattson needed some time alone. During this, an Electrike came to comfort the Mauville City Gym Leader. Wattson decided to keep the electrical canine as one of his own Pokémon.

Other

Electrike also appeared in The Electrike Company! under the ownership of Jaco. Though Jaco thought that Electrike wasn't that strong and wouldn't pass a test, Ash and friends helped Electrike control its power, resulting in it evolving into a Manectric.

Minor appearances

Electrike made its debut in Jirachi: Wish Maker. One was seen with its owner in the opening of the film while another was a wild Pokémon that lived in Forina.

An Electrike appeared in the opening of Lucario and the Mystery of Mew.

A wild Electrike appeared in Camping It Up!

An Electrike appeared in SS027.

Trivia

  • Electrike shares its species name with Jolteon. They are both known as the Lightning Pokémon.

Origin

Electrike may be based on a maned wolf pup and a yōkai of Japanese lore, the 雷獣 Raijū, an elemental lightning creature that can take on the shape of various mammals.

Name origin

Electrike may be a combination of electric and strike.

Rakurai literally means 落雷 (bolt of lightning).
