Biology

Zeraora is a bipedal, feline Pokémon with primarily yellow and black fur. The fur is thinner and black on its lower legs, lower body, upper arms, and face, and is thicker and yellow everywhere else. There is also a zigzagging black stripe on each thigh and two more stripes on each forearm. There are small tufts of light blue fur on its chest and a longer tuft on its forehead. It also has a single, lightning bolt-shaped blue whisker on each cheek. A long, ponytail-like or tail-like bunch of fur extends from between its shoulders. Zeraora has large ears with black insides and blue eyes. Its forepaws have four clawed fingers and light blue pads, while its hindpaws have only three clawed toes.

Zeraora lacks an electricity-generating organ, so it gathers and stores electricity from outside sources. This Pokémon can create a very powerful magnetic field through the strong electric currents emitted from its paw pads. Using this magnetic field allows it to levitate and move at high speeds while airborne. It can travel as fast as a lightning strike. Its fur is known to stand on end whenever it is using massive amounts of electricity.[1]Zeraora can tear its opponents apart with it high-voltage claws. Even if the opponent dodges, they still get electrocuted by the flying sparks. Lighting flashes and thunderclaps can occur when Zeraora starts running.

Zeraora is the only known Pokémon capable of learning the move Plasma Fists.

Trivia

Origin

Zeraora's feline appearance may take inspiration from tigers and servals. Its Electric type may allude to Kanehekili, the Hawaiian god of thunder. The typing might also reference an oni, a supernatural creature often associated with tiger pelts and lightning; or even a raijū, a creature that is the embodiment of lightning into an animal form, which is sometimes represented as a cat. Based on its swift movement and slicing up of its opponents, it may also draw inspiration from the kamaitachi. Its Shiny coloration may be based on white tigers.

Name origin

Zeraora's name may be inspired by Zeus; a Greek deity associated with lightning, thunder; as well of power, viewed as a 'king' of gods. As Zeraora was introduced in Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, it may be worth stressing too; that Ra was an ancient Egyptian sun deity. In Chinese culture, tigers have been associated with courage, ferocity and Yin energy; which may fit Zeraora's nature. Zeraora may also be a combination of زر zarra (Arabic for to beam/glitter/shine, to encroach upon one's enemy) and 虎 tora (Japanese for tiger) or tora (Faroese for thunder).
