Special AbilitiesEdit

Electabuzz specialize in using electrical attacks. Electabuzz can also be good with using physical attacks, such as the elemental punches, Brick Break and Mega Punch.


Electabuzz tend to be drawn to electrical sources. That is why many of them can be found in power plants. This is also the reason why during thunderstorms, they compete with each other to reach heights likely to be stricken by lightning bolts.

When two Electabuzz meet, they communicate their feelings by touching and controlling the electric currents.

Also, shown in Showdown at Dark City, Electabuzz hate the color red. When they have seen the color, Electabuzz go on rampages.


Electabuzz normally reside in power plants and can sometimes wander into cities and cause major black-outs. Kanto and Sinnoh are the best places to find such Pokémon.
