Pokédex entries

Red
Blue
It accumulates negative ions in the atmosphere to blast out 10000-volt lightning bolts.
Yellow A sensitive POKéMON that easily becomes sad or angry. Every time its mood changes, it charges power.
Gold It concentrates the weak electric charges emitted by its cells and launches wicked lightning bolts.
Silver Every hair on its body starts to stand sharply on end if it becomes charged with electricity.
Crystal The negatively charged ions generated in its fur create a constant sparking noise.
Ruby
Sapphire
JOLTEON’s cells generate a low level of electricity. This power is amplified by the static electricity of its fur, enabling the POKéMON to drop thunderbolts. The bristling fur is made of electrically charged needles.
FireRed If it is angered or startled, the fur all over its body bristles like sharp needles that pierce foes.
LeafGreen It accumulates negative ions in the atmosphere to blast out 10,000-volt lightning bolts.
Emerald Its cells generate weak power that is amplified by its fur’s static electricity to drop thunderbolts. The bristling fur is made of electrically charged needles.
Diamond
Pearl
It controls 10,000-volt power and can raise all the fur on its body as if it were sharp needles.
Platinum If agitated, it uses electricity to straighten out its fur and launch it in small bunches.
HeartGold It concentrates the weak electric charges emitted by its cells and launches wicked lightning bolts.
SoulSilver Every hair on its body starts to stand sharply on end if it becomes charged with electricity.
Black
White
If agitated, it uses electricity to straighten out its fur and launch it in small bunches.
Black 2
White 2
By storing electricity in its body, it can shoot its bristlelike fur like a barrage of missiles.
X Every hair on its body starts to stand sharply on end if it becomes charged with electricity.
Y It accumulates negative ions in the atmosphere to blast out 10,000-volt lightning bolts.
Omega Ruby
Alpha Sapphire
Jolteon’s cells generate a low level of electricity. This power is amplified by the static electricity of its fur, enabling the Pokémon to drop thunderbolts. The bristling fur is made of electrically charged needles.
Sun They send out electrical charges of about 10,000 volts. Because they are high-strung, it can be difficult to grow close to them.
Moon When its fur stands on end, that’s a sign it’s about to give off a jolt of electricity. Take care, as sometimes lightning strikes next to it, too.
Ultra Sun Its lungs contain an organ that creates electricity. The crackling sound of electricity can be heard when it exhales.
Ultra Moon Its fur stands on end, becoming like needles it fires at enemies. Once they’re weakened, it finishes them off with a 10,000 volt shock.
