Electrode is a round Shiny Pokemon that looks like a Poké Ball with the colors turned around. It has a mouth and eyes. It is white at the top and red at the bottom.

Many Trainers try to pick it up because they think it is an item. Electrode is shown as hollow on the Pocket Monsters Carddass Trading Cards. Many people call it “Bomb Ball” because it is unpredictable and can explode at any time.

Electrode likes to live in power plants because that’s where it can get fresh electricity, which it needs to live. Because of this, there are often blackouts.

The faster Electrode moves, the more electricity it uses. Electrode blows up in response to even the smallest stimulus, either to amuse itself or because it has taken in too much electricity.

But unlike Voltorb, Electrode can decide when and how to use its explosive power. It has been known to move with the wind when it was full of electricity.

It has white metal hands that look like gloves and are attached to retractable blades. Two blades wrap around its middle, making it look like it has ribs.

No one knows if Suicune, Raikou, and Entei were already Suicune, Raikou, and Entei before Ho-Oh brought them back to life or if Ho-Oh reincarnated them from three non-Legendary Pokémon.

From what I’ve seen in the anime, Zygarde Cores can get their strength back by soaking up sunlight and can talk to each other through telepathy.

The rest of Zygarde is made up of Zygarde Cells, which look almost exactly like the Zygarde Core. Unlike the Core, its body and head are both flat.

The sash is known to suck the life energy out of anyone who dares to grab it by the hilt. Honedge’s sheath is dark brown and has curved lines on it that look like a triquetra.

4. Metagross


Metagross is a big, shiny robot Pokemon. Its body is shaped like a turquoise disc, and it has four legs. The main body seems to be both the head and the body, and the way this Pokémon is put together makes it look like a mechanical spider.

It uses its big, heavy body to pin down its prey, which it then eats with its big mouth. It has a large metal cross in the middle of its face. On each side of the cross, a red eye peeks out from a hole in Metagross’s metal armor.

Ball-and-socket joints connect its four legs to its main body. The upper part of the legs is not very thick, but the part below the knee is a lot thicker.

A Magikarp that lives for a long time can use its huge splashing power to jump so high that it can climb mountains.

It also has a strong immune system that lets it live in water that is very dirty. Trainers usually don’t pay much attention to it, though, because they think it’s weak because it doesn’t do much in battle.

Scientists think that Magikarp’s ancestors were much stronger than modern Magikarp. This made them want to learn more about this species.
