Electrike (Japanese: ラクライ Rakurai) is an Electric-Type Pokémon. It is a Basic Pokémon. Its special abilities are Static and Lightningrod. Using electricity stored in its fur, it stimulates its muscles to heighten its reaction speed.


Electrike generates electricity using friction from the atmosphere. In arid winds stations, its body becomes inflamed and throws sparks violently. It usually live near Power Plants. But if there is a human that will feed him, it will earn his friendship. It runs so fast, it escapes the human eye. Electrike is a Pokémon that can live in human homes, because it is very friendly with the people that own it. It can recognize by smell if a person is friend or foe. Therefore, it is also a good Pokémon guardian.

Like many electric Pokémon, its skin is full of energy. This involves special care to prevent accidents such as, for example, using a wooden toothbrush that does not conduct electricity instead of a metal one. It is also very skilled in special attack and speed, but its defense is a little off. This means you need to train its defense and special defense stats with more care.


Electrike evolves into Manectric at level 26.
