Electrode (Japanese: マルマイン Marumine) is an Electric-type Pokémon.

It evolves from Voltorb starting at level 30.


Electrode is a round Pokémon resembling a reverse-colored Poké Ball with a mouth and eyes. Its top half is white, while its lower half is red. For this reason, many Trainers try to pick it up, mistaking it for an item. The Pocket Monsters Carddass Trading Cards depict Electrode as hollow. Many know it by the nickname "Bomb Ball."

Electrode tends to live in power plants where fresh electricity is being generated, which it consumes. As a result, it often causes blackouts. The more electric energy Electrode consumes, the faster it moves. Electrode explodes in response to even the smallest stimulation, simply to entertain itself, or because it has taken in too much electricity. When full of stored electricity, it has been known to drift with the wind.


  • In Red, Blue, FireRed, and LeafGreen, players can obtain an Electrode at a level as low as 3 by catching a Pikachu in Viridian Forest, evolving it, and trading it to an old man on Cinnabar Island.
  • Electrode has a short song dedicated to it, sung by Suzukisan.
  • Electrode has the highest base Speed of all Electric-types.


It seems to be based upon the concept of a living Poké Ball, and is often mistaken for one. Also, based off its Japanese name and its explosive tendencies, Electrode may have some connection to land mines. The design concept may be inheritance from the time when the franchise was known as Capsule Monsters, as early artworks show Poké Balls without the button in the middle. Like Voltorb, it may be based on ball lightning as well.

Name origin

Electrode may be a portmanteau of electric and explode or node (a computer or program), as well as a pun on electrode, a device through which electrical currents pass, but it is usually in the shape of a rod.

Marumine may be a combination of 丸 maru (circle) and mine, as in landmine.
