Stephan's Zebstrika (Japanese: ケニヤンのゼブライカ Kenyan's Zebraika) is the first Pokémon owned by Stephan.


As a Blitzle

Zebstrika, as a Blitzle first appeared in a battle against Ash. It went up against his Oshawott, but it kicked off Oshawott's scalchop, which ultimately caused the battle to be postponed. The next day Blitzle re-battled him after some training. It managed to destroy the stone scalchop that Dwebble had made for him with Shock Wave. However, because of Oshawott's training with the heavy scalchop, Oshawott's speed increases respectively. After Blitzle use Flame Charge and Oshawott use Aqua Jet, they both collided into a rock combined into a huge wave of steam. However, Blitzle was knocked out while Oshawott remained standing.

In Reunion Battles In Nimbasa!, it appeared again where it was revealed to have evolved. Stephan used it in his first battle in the Club Battle Tournament against Bianca and Minccino in Cilan Versus Trip, Ash Versus Georgia!. Despite getting hit by Minccino's combination of Double Slap and Hyper Voice, it defeated the Chinchilla Pokémon with Stomp and advanced its Trainer to the second round.

In Curtain Up, Unova League!, Stephan used Zebstrika at the Vertress Conference in his first match against Radley's Braviary and won with a super-effective Thunderbolt.

Zebstrika was also used to battle against Ash and Palpitoad in the fourth round during Strong Strategy Steals the Show!. It had the upper hand, but it got poisoned by Palpitoad's newly learned Sludge Wave. But Zebstrika used the poison to its advantage and use Facade. After getting confused by Palpitoad's Supersonic and getting hit by Hydro Pump, Zebstrika was able to hang in there and use Giga Impact, hitting Palpitoad. But, however the Vibration Pokémon was able to hit Zebstrika with Mud Shot, which led to a double knockout.
