PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

Every time I've gotten Electrode from the Pokeballs, he explodes like usual. But when I get Electrode, sometimes he doesn't explode. I've also heard rumors that you can pick up Electrode and throw him. What is the chance of Electrode not exploding and is the rumor true?

When Electrode turns black and starts to shrink you can throw him.

Electrodes usually explode, but sometimes they will have what is known as a "dud", where they will feign not exploding for a few seconds. During this time, you can throw them. Of course, there is no exact chance that they will completely not explode at all; it's all random.
