Yamper

Yamper is an Electric type Pokémon introduced in Generation 8. It is known as the Puppy Pokémon.

Yamper has an organ in its body that generates electricity, and this organ is activated when Yamper runs around. Yamper can't store the electricity it generates, so it's often seen running around with electric sparks crackling around it.
