Zippy Zap (move)
ばちばちアクセル Crackling Accel
Zippy Zap (Japanese: ばちばちアクセル Crackling Accel) is a damage-dealing Electric-type move introduced in Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!. It is one of the signature moves of the partner Pikachu.
Zippy Zap inflicts damage and will always result in a critical hit. It has a priority of +2, so it is used before all moves that do not have increased priority.
Generation VIII onwards
Zippy Zap cannot be selected in a battle. However, it has been modified: its PP was changed 10 while its power was changed to 80. Additionally, its secondary effect is raising evasion by one stage, instead of a guaranteed critical hit.
By Move Tutor
In Let's Go, Pikachu!, the Move Tutor of Zippy Zap is located in Cerulean City's Pokémon Center.
