Zeraora is an Electric type Pokémon introduced in Generation 7. It is known as the Thunderclap Pokémon.

Zeraora is mythical Pokémon introduced in Pokémon Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon.

This Pokémon creates a powerful magnetic field by emitting strong electric currents from the pads on its hands and feet. Unlike most Electric-type Pokémon, Zeraora doesn’t have an organ within its body that can produce electricity. However, it is able to gather and store electricity from outside sources, then use it as its own electric energy.
