Sylvester (BW039)

Sylvester (Japanese: サンシロー Sanshirō) is a character of the day who appeared in Reunion Battles In Nimbasa!. He participated in the Club Battle tournament, but lost in a battle against Georgia, thus getting knocked out in the very first round.


He reappeared in a flashback in A Unova League Evolution!.


Joltik first appeared in Reunion Battles In Nimbasa!, where it went up against Georgia's Beartic. Due to its small size, Joltik was very nimble and was able to outrun Beartic's attempts to hit it with Rock Smash before attaching itself to the Freezing Pokémon and hitting it with a direct Thunderbolt. However, this move backfired as Beartic collapsed backwards onto Joltik, knocking it out.

Joltik's only known move is Thunderbolt.
