Pokémon Wiki

Togedemaru (トゲデマル, Togedemaru) is a electric/steel-type Pokémon introduced in Generation VII.



Togedemaru is a small, gray, fat, and round hedgehog-like Pokémon. It has a long gray tail resembling a lightning bolt with a yellow tip. It has three flat triangular spike-like flaps on each side of its body. On both sides, two of its flaps are yellow with the middle flap being brown. Its face plate is cover with white fur reaching down to its legs and feet, with its ears at the upper tips of its face plate. There are round yellow circles on its cheeks used for storing electricity. Its arms are stubby and are located around the middle of its face plate.


Togedemaru uses its tail to attract and absorb electricity. Groups of them often gather with their tails stuck in the air during lightning storms.Some Trainers use its ability to absorb electricity as a strategy in battle. The opponent is coaxed into unleashing an Electric-type attack, and then has that power turned against it. When it is pleased, this Pokémon will curl into a ball and roll around uncontrollably. Togedemaru clashes with Elekid whenever it tries to steal the latter's electricity, usually ending with even matches.


Togedemaru does not evolve.

Pokédex entries

  • Sun

    The spiny fur on its back is normally at rest. When this Pokémon becomes agitated, its fur stands on end and stabs into its attackers.

  • Moon

    The long hairs on its back act as lightning rods. The bolts of lightning it attracts are stored as energy in its electric sac.

  • Ultra Sun

    When it's surprised or agitated, the 14 fur spikes on its back will stand up involuntarily.

  • Ultra Moon

    Its capacity to produce electricity is somewhat limited, so it gets charged up by letting lightning strike it!

  • Sword

    With the long hairs on its back, this Pokémon takes in electricity from other electric Pokémon. It stores what it absorbs in an electric sac.

  • Shield

    When it's in trouble, it curls up into a ball, makes its fur spikes stand on end, and then discharges electricity indiscriminately.

Sophocles' Togedemaru.



  • Togedemaru has the most Egg-Moves of all Generation VII Pokémon with 9.
  • In Super Smash Bros., Togedemaru is one of the Pokémon that can be freed from Poké Balls. During this time, it uses the move Zing Zap.
  • Togedemaru is the first Electric/Steel-type Pokémon that is not related to the Magnemite evolutionary line.


Togedemaru is based on a porcupine, hedgehog, or Ryukyu Spiny Rat.


Togedemaru is the same name in every language, meaning that it has Japanese origin.

It may come from toge (spine), denki (electricity), maru (round), and togenezumi (the Japanese name for the Ryukyu Spiny Rat). It could also simply come from toge de maru, which translates to "thorned and round".

Names in other languages
