We've talked before about the science behind Fire Pokemon. Today I am turning my Theorist eye towards a different type - Electric! Throughout the series we see Pikachu zap Ash and many others with its attacks. It got me wondering - how powerful is Pikachu? Or any Electric type? Well, when you look at the science, the answer may SHOCK you!

  • Didn't matpat already disprove the pokedex, making using the pokedex in this episode shady at best, and hypocritical at worse

  • Something worth correcting is that I believe most electric type Pokemon would have bodies designed to be able to handle elecricity running through their insides. We are talking about a series with a fire lizard with an active flame on their tail so it would make sense that through a form of evolution, namely the Darwin kind of evolution, that pokemon bodies adapt to be able to survive their own abilities. This may actually be supported in the games and anime too. If Pichu uses electricity moves, it takes damage. Pikachu or Raichu do it, they don't take damage. This tells me that Pichu is the only electric pokemon to not have a body design to use its electricity without harming itself, which throws out the Pikachu shocking himself part.

  • "we don't know much about electricity we know its zappy" yeah nooooobody knows anything about electricity it was just always there and nobody ever invented DC or AC nuclear plants are just there from aliens to polute human world and electricity is just spawning by trees and dirt of course (this is all ironic even matpat's sentence certainly)

  • if you going to claim what you do at least consider amperage. "A current of 10 mA or 0.01 A provides a severe shock, but it wouldn’t be fatal. As we approach 100 mA or 0.1 A, muscular contractions begin. It is imperative to realize that because of the heart’s low resistance, a current of magnitude as small as 10 mA through it is enough to kill us". the shock came from inside the pokemon then out, implying plasma was being generated in the pokemon producing an outward reaction to the potential difference? of idk 100000 volts if you are not an electric pokemon and do not have a skin theat would act as further resistance. now im no electrocution and we are missing the information needed to get amperage, so my argument is bias toward your dislike of pikachu.

  • Im actually saying this again from someone else in the comments but what if they can ionize or charge the air pre lightning bolt coming from their body and one more thing the pokemon world is full of magic and other unworldly stuff they may not even have the same physics of our world or they do but we don't have advanced enough science to figure it out

  • Mat pat: pikachu is terrible because of the pokedex Me: yeah i would not call the pokedex reliable kecleon can change into any color... his zig zag on his belly not, a Mamoswine was dug out of an iceberg after 10.000 years and woke up in amazement after his nap oh or metang which gets not even a scratch from a jet plane crashing on it. Those are just a handful but seems like wikipedia is still a better source.

  • Aye Matt, what if pikachu’s body was negatively charged in the event of one of its attacks so that that electricity could find a positively charged opponent. When that electric attack is completed, pikachus body returns to positive.
