Thunderbolt (Japanese: 10まんボルト 100,000 Volts) is a damage-dealing Electric-type move introduced in Generation I. It was TM24 in Generation I before losing its status in Generation II. It returned to being TM24 from Generation III to Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon and in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, and was TM36 in Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!. In Pokémon Sword and Shield, it is TR08.

It can be upgraded to the special Z-Move Stoked Sparksurfer by Alolan Raichu holding Aloraichium Z, and to the special Z-Move 10,000,000 Volt Thunderbolt by Pikachu in a cap holding Pikashunium Z.

Effect

Generation I

Thunderbolt does damage and has a 10% chance of paralyzing the target. Thunderbolt cannot paralyze Electric-type Pokémon.

Generation II to V

Thunderbolt can now paralyze Electric-type Pokémon.

Thunderbolt can be used as part of a Pokémon Contest combination, with the user gaining extra four appeal points if Charge was used in the prior turn.

Generation VI onwards

Thunderbolt's power was decreased from 95 to 90. It can no longer paralyze Electric-type Pokémon once again, due to them now being immune to paralysis.

Thunderbolt can be used as part of a Contest Spectacular combination, with the user gaining an extra three appeal points if Charge was used in the prior turn.
