10,000,000 Volt Thunderbolt (Japanese: 1000まんボルト 10,000,000 Volts) is a damage-dealing Electric-type Z-Move introduced in Generation VII. It is the exclusive Z-Move of any Pikachu wearing a cap and an upgraded version of Thunderbolt.



10,000,000 Volt Thunderbolt deals damage and has a sharply increased critical hit ratio of +2 stages.

  • This is the only move whose English name starts with a non-alphabetic character.
  • The name of this move is partly based off of the Japanese name for Thunderbolt, 100,000 Volts. The 10,000,000 figure references that it is an upgrade of Thunderbolt.
