With recent changes to {{Pokémon}}, some things may look a little funny. In particular, all Pokémon that haven't had their gender parameter updated to the new format are displaying as 100% male, regardless of what the old text says. It may take a while but I will be gradually working on updating the affected pages. --Eithris (talk) 04:35, 8 November 2018 (UTC)

Electrify (Japanese: そうでん Electrify) is a Electric-type move introduced in the Generation VI games, Pokémon X and Y. It is the signature move of Helioptile, and its evolutionary form, Heliolisk.

Game info


In battle

Electrify makes the targeted Pokémon's move Electric-type, as long as the Pokémon has not moved yet this turn.

If the targeted Pokémon uses the move Flying Press, the move becomes an Electric/Flying-type move, but only when it would be considered a STAB move.

If the targeted Pokémon uses the move Freeze-Dry, the attack will change to be Electric-type, but the attack will not become x4 effective against Water-type Pokémon, but instead still be x2 effective.

Outside of battle

Electrify has no affect outside of battle.


Version(s) Description
X/Y If the target is electrified before it uses a move during that turn, the target's move becomes Electric type.
