Yellow If a major power outage occurs, it is certain that this POKéMON has eaten electricity at a power plant.
Gold Electricity runs across the surface of its body. In darkness, its entire body glows a whitish-blue.
Silver Its body constantly discharges electricity. Getting close to it will make your hair stand on end.
Crystal When two ELECTABUZZ touch, they control the electric currents to communicate their feelings.
Ruby
Sapphire
When a storm arrives, gangs of this POKéMON compete with each other to scale heights that are likely to be stricken by lightning bolts. Some towns use ELECTABUZZ in place of lightning rods.
FireRed It loves to feed on strong electricity. It occasionally appears around large power plants and so on.
LeafGreen Normally found near power plants, they can wander away and cause major blackouts in cities.
Emerald When a storm approaches, it competes with others to scale heights that are likely to be stricken by lightning. Some towns use ELECTABUZZ in place of lightning rods.

Pearl
Half of all blackouts occur when this Pokémon appears at power plants and eats electricity.

Omega Ruby
Alpha Sapphire
When a storm arrives, gangs of this Pokémon compete with each other to scale heights that are likely to be stricken by lightning bolts. Some towns use Electabuzz in place of lightning rods.
Sun Half of all sudden blackouts are caused by Electabuzz gathering at electric power plants and gobbling up electricity.
Moon Electricity leaks from it in amounts far greater than the amount of electricity it eats.
Ultra Sun Electricity permeates its body. It swings its arms round and round to charge up electricity before unleashing a punch.
Ultra Moon While it’s often blamed for power outages, the truth is the cause of outages is more often an error on the part of the electric company.
