Elekid's arms are slightly more bulkier in proportion to its body than those of its evolved forms, and, unlike its evolutions, it has three claws instead of fingers. Like its evolutions, it has stripes on its arms, all the two of which continue all the way around. an Elekid has two horns on top of its head that are shaped like the prongs of a plug, even with holes in their sides, making Elekid look like a walking power plug. Elekid has a black lightning bolt marking on its chest. Two rows of stripes are near the marking on the sides of its thighs, with the pattern continuing around its lower back. Elekid’s legs are black in coloration, and its feet are rounded and toeless, somewhat resembling shoes. An Elekid's height is 2'00" and weight is 51.8 lbs.
