Effects

Electric Terrain creates a low-lying electric field for 5 turns, that prevents grounded Pokémon from falling asleep. The power of Electric type moves also increases by 50% while in effect.

Grounded Pokémon are simply those that are not raised. Raised Pokémon are any Flying types or those under the effects of Levitate, Magnet Rise or Telekinesis. Full details in glossary.

Electric Terrain is a terrain condition and can coexist at the same time as weather conditions, but not other terrain conditions.

The move Nature Power turns into Thunderbolt under Electric Terrain.
