"The pinnacle of skill. The fairest of all moves. The yellow color. (...) What part of beating up a completely immobile opponent unsettles you?"

Thunder Wave is a non-damaging Electric-type move. It is a tutor move taught by Scientist Hank's Smogoon student in Pa'ia University 2F for 2 Yellow Shards.

Effect

Thunder Wave has 90% accuracy and paralyzes the target.

Thunder Wave takes types into consideration, so cannot usually affect Ground-type Pokémon. If Thunder Wave's type is changed, it takes into consideration its actual type: for example, when affected by Normalize, Thunder Wave can affect Ground-type Pokémon and Pokémon with Lightning Rod, but can no longer affect Ghost-type Pokémon.

Description

Description
A weak electric shock that is sure to cause paralysis if it hits.
