Electrode are round Pokémon with no arms or legs. They resemble an upside-down Poké Ball. For this reason, many Trainers try to pick them up in the Power Plant, mistaking them for an item. Whereas their pre-evolution resembles a conventional Poké Ball in both shape and color, Electrode have the colors reversed (the red being on the bottom and white on top), and have a mouth. Its height is 3'11" and weight is 146.8 lbs.
The more electric energy Electrode consumes, the faster they moves. If agitated, they may randomly explode.
Electrode tend to live in power plants where fresh electricity is being generated. As a result, these Pokémon often cause blackouts. Electrode explode in response to even the smallest stimulation. They are known to explode when bored just to entertain themselves. They are known by the nickname "Bomb Ball".
Electrode live in power plants. They may occasionally be found in other buildings, where they provide power for operational purposes. They are also found on farms guarding the crops and fruit there, and are usually painted the same color as the fruits they guard. They are quite rare, but have been encountered in Kanto, Johto, and Hoenn.
