When a Pokémon with Motor Drive is hit by an Electric-typemove, its Speed is increased by one stage, and the move will have no effect on that Pokémon.
Multi-strike moves that are turned into Electric-type moves, such as by being affected by Electrify or Galvanize, will only activate this Ability once. Motor Drive will not activate if the Pokémon is protected from the Electric-type move.
If a Pokémon with Motor Drive is holding a Cell Battery, Motor Drive absorbs the move so the Cell Battery's effect is not triggered.
Electivire can absorb Electric-type attacks that are sent at it. When it does, yellow sparks of electricity surround its body, and it spins its arms rapidly, giving it a golden aura. Electivire's speed then increases.
