Yamper (ワンパチ, Wanpachi) is an Electric-type Pokémon introduced in Generation VIII. It evolves into Boltund at level 25.

Biology

Physiology

Yamper is based on the Corgi, a breed commonly attributed to the UK (Welsh Corgis, the royal Corgis). It shares the chubby body and short legs with the Corgi, but its face more resembles the Boston Terrier. Its underbelly and paws are white, while its top half is light tan. It has a small, lightning-bolt shaped tail. The insides of its ears are green and yellow, as are its eyes. It has a large patch of yellow fur around its neck. It has two small, visible fangs on the bottom of its mouth.

Behavior

Yamper have a habit of chasing running and moving things, ranging from humans and other Pokémon to moving vehicles.

As they can't store much electricity in its organ, this can explain their tendency to roam around with crackling electric sparks.

Yamper follow and obey people only because they want treats, according to their Shield Dex entry. However, this doesn't affect their popularity in Galar as shepherd dogs.

Natural abilities

Yamper can generate electricity from the base of their tails.
