Galvanize (Japanese: エレキスキン Electric Skin) is an Ability introduced in Generation VII. It is the signature Ability of Alolan Geodude's evolutionary line.
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, Volt Absorb, and Motor Drive. If a move is affected by Galvanize and is used under Electric Terrain, it will receive an additional 30% power boost from Electric Terrain (50% prior to Generation VIII).
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.
