Inflicts the target with paralysis

Generation IX

Wildbolt Storm's PP and power were changed to 10 and 100, respectively. It now has a 20% chance of paralyzing each target. In a battle with multiple opponents, Wildbolt Storm will target all adjacent opponents.

When used during rain, Wildbolt Storm bypasses accuracy checks to always hit, unless the target is in the semi-invulnerable turn of a move such as Dig or Fly.


Games Description
LA The user summons a thunderous tempest and savagely attacks with lightning and wind. This may also leave the target with paralysis.
SV The user summons a thunderous tempest and savagely attacks with lightning and wind. This may also leave opposing Pokémon with paralysis.
