Effect

385Jirachi.png This Ability effect may be in need of research.
Reason: Are galvanized moves affected by electric terrain?
You can discuss this on the talk page.

In battle

Galvanize causes all Normal-type moves used by the Pokémon to become Electric-type and receive a 20% power boost. Normal type moves that become Electric type in this manner can activate Lightning Rod. If Max Strike is selected with Galvanize, it'll turn into Max Lightning when used.

Outside of battle

Galvanize has no effect outside of battle.
