Electabuzz is a slightly humanoid and partly feline creature covered in yellow fur with black stripes, one of which is shaped like a lightning bolt. It has a long, cat-like tail. The three toes on Electabuzz's feet are arranged like that of a bird's foot, but its hands have a human appearance, with five fingers on each hand.
Electabuzz has two sharp fangs and a pair of antennae. When it is dark out, Electabuzz's entire body gives off a bluish-white glow.
Electabuzz specialize in using electrical attacks. Electabuzz can also be good with using physical attacks, such as the elemental punches, Brick Break and Mega Punch.
Electabuzz tend to be drawn to electrical sources. That is why many of them can be found in power plants. This is also the reason why during thunderstorms, they compete with each other to reach heights likely to be stricken by lightning bolts.
When two Electabuzz meet, they communicate their feelings by touching and controlling the electric currents.
Electabuzz normally reside in power plants and can sometimes wander into cities and cause major black-outs. Kanto is the best place to find such Pokémon.
Electabuzz is primarily an ergovore, which means that it feeds off electric currents.
This Pokémon was unavailable prior to Generation I.
