Electro Ball (Japanese: エレキボール Elecball) is a damage-dealing Electric-type move introduced in Generation V. It is TR80 in Generation VIII.

Contents

Effect

Electro Ball inflicts more damage the faster the user is compared to the target.

Electro Ball's power is calculated as follows:

Target's Speed Power
More than 100%, or exactly 0 40
50.01% - 100% 60
33.34% - 50% 80
25.01% - 33.33% 120
0.01% - 25% 150

The Speed values used take all modifiers into account (including stat stages, paralysis, held items such as the Iron Ball, and Abilities such as Slush Rush).

Electro Ball has no effect on Pokémon with Bulletproof.

Electro Ball can also be used as part of a Contest Spectacular combination, with the user gaining extra three appeal points if a certain move (Agility, Autotomize, Calm Mind, Charge, Rock Polish, or Shell Smash) was used in the prior turn.

In other games

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series

In Gates to Infinity, as the Speed stat does not exist in the game, the difference of the user's Travel Speed and the target's Travel Speed affects damage inflicted to the target. The faster the user is (comparing Travel Speed), the more damage it does.

From Super Mystery Dungeon onward, it compares the Speed stats between the user and the target. The higher the user's Speed stat is compared to the target's, the more damage it does.
