Pokédex entries

Gold It rotates its arms to generate electricity, but it tires easily, so it charges up only a little bit.
Silver Even in the most vicious storm, this POKéMON plays happily if thunder rumbles in the sky.
Crystal It loves violent thunder. The space between its horns flickers bluish-white when it is charging energy.
Ruby
Sapphire
ELEKID stores electricity in its body. If it touches metal and accidentally discharges all its built-up electricity, this POKéMON begins swinging its arms in circles to recharge itself.
FireRed Even in the most vicious storm, this POKéMON plays happily if thunder rumbles in the sky.
LeafGreen It rotates its arms to generate electricity, but it tires easily, so it charges up only a little bit.
Emerald If it touches metal and discharges the electricity it has stored in its body, an ELEKID begins swinging its arms in circles to recharge itself.
Diamond
Pearl
It generates electricity by whirling its arms. However, it can’t store the energy it makes.
Platinum A weak electric current flows between its horns. Sticking a hand there shocks the unwary.
HeartGold It rotates its arms to generate electricity, but it tires easily, so it only charges up a little bit.
SoulSilver Even in the most vicious storm, this Pokémon plays happily if thunder rumbles in the sky.
Black
White

Omega Ruby
Alpha Sapphire
Elekid stores electricity in its body. If it touches metal and accidentally discharges all its built-up electricity, this Pokémon begins swinging its arms in circles to recharge itself.
Sun When it’s in a house, electrical outlets serve as its baby bottles. It sucks down electricity.
Moon This Pokémon is constantly fighting with Togedemaru that try to steal its electricity. It’s a pretty even match.
Ultra Sun When it hears the crash of thunder, Elekid’s mood improves. It can be useful to record that sound and play it when Elekid’s feeling down.
Ultra Moon When its horns shine a bluish white, that’s the sign it’s fully charged. You’ll get a shocking jolt if you touch it!
