Pokemon Review #239: The Plug

Alright, howdy folks, and welcome to the first ever entry into the Pokemon Review column. Quick run of how things will work, I’m going to use a random number generator to select a number, and the Pokemon whose number correlates with the number drawn will be the star of the show. Any evolutions will be briefly touched on. And what I cover will be a variety of things, not just battle related stuff. Cause I am not a battler. So here we go!

Alright, so who get’s the privilege of being our first victim? The title’s meant to be a hint, mind you. I don’t know about you guys, but I feel like this Pokemon would be a very nice substitute for my charger. Cause I can never find a damn charger for my laptop when there’s only 2% of battery left.

Introducing *drumroll*
Spoiler:

Yerp

Today, our focus shall be on the “Electric” Pokémon Elekid. The pre-evolution of Electabuzz, Elekid is, well... okay. Not amazing, but not Magikarp. Having been brought into creation during Generation 2 (that’s four generations ago!) Elekid grew to be known as simply another baby. Literally. If I remember right, Johto was filled with runts like Pichu, Elekid, that little cute water ball whose name I don’t remember. That’s not to say Elekid’s a terrible Pokemon. Personally, when Electivire was created in Gen 5, Elekid truly served a purpose. But before that, Elekid was just a mediocre Pokemon who you wanted to plug into an outlet.

Elekid’s shiny sprite’s a disappointment. Shocking huh? Oof, there goes that punchline. But Shiny Elekid’s simply a lighter yellow. Nothing special. I don’t remember but did Electivire have a badass shiny sprite? Someone remind me. Anyhow, something I found sort of interesting is the gender ratio of Elekid. 75% of them are male. Talk about domination. But then again, it kinda makes sense. I mean… look at Elekid. Too see that, and then think one of them is a girl. Kinda scary. Brr.

Ability wise, Elekid’s doing okay. Static’s a fair ability to have, not bad, but not brilliant. Its hidden ability, Vital Spirit, is a tad step down on the totem pole, in my opinion. I’d rather be giving the pain then avoiding it.

Design wise, I’ve already mocked Elekid for looking like a plug. The thing also looks really creepy, to be totally honest. For a baby, anyway. It’s got a weird cute factor to it, though, I must admit. Not as cute as this Elekid though:

And there you have it. Feel free to leave your responses below, I'll need them to make this thing better.

And I'm aware this review was pretty bad. I had a fight with a friend yesterday. Personal business which I made worse blah. Thanks for reading though <3
