Ampharos (デンリュウ) is the 55th Pokémon in the Johto Pokédex. It is an Electric-Type, and it is known as the Light Pokémon.

Ampharos uses the Static Ability. This Ability has a 30% chance of afflicting an opponent that uses an attack that makes contact with it with Paralysis. A second Ability is available to Ampharos from the Dream World, the Plus Ability. When using this Ability in conjunction with another Pokémon that has either the Plus or Minus Ability, its Special Attack increases by 50%.

Mareep can evolve into Flaaffy at Level 15 and can evolve into Ampharos at Level 30.

Ampharos is in the Egg Groups Monster and Field, and its Egg will hatch after approximately 5,120 Steps. It takes Ampharos 1,059,860 Experience Points to reach Level 100.

[edit] Game Information

[edit] Original Games

Ampharos was introduced in the Second Generation of Pokémon. Jasmine tends to an Ampharos that is ill in the Olivine Lighthouse. To obtain an Ampharos you'll have to evolve Flaaffy.

[edit] Spin-off Games

Ampharos can be obtained in Pokémon Colosseum and Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness, but to obtain one in either game you'll have to purify Flaaffy and Mareep in each respective game and evolve each Pokémon.

Ampharos appears at Endless Level 10, Forever Level 5 and Mr. Who's Den in Pokémon Trozei!.

Ampharos can only be obtained by evolving Flaaffy in the first round of Mystery Dungeon games. In Explorers of Time, Explorers of Darkness and Explorers of Sky, Ampharos appears at Amp Plains I6F-I9F and Landslide Cave B1-B12. Ampharos is exclusive to Light Adventure Squad in Mystery Dungeon 3, appearing at Light Summit 21F-29F and the following Floors on Legendary Mountains: 26 & 27, 29, 33, 36, 41 & 42, 44 & 45 and 48 & 49.

Ampharos can be found within the Altru Building and Altru Tower in Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia. Ampharos appears within the 5th Trial room in Rasp Cavern, the west cave on the second floor of Mt. Layuda, and in the upper levels of the Oblivia Region Sky Fortress during the Present Era in Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs. In the past, Ampharos can be obtained in the Ice Temple missions "Round and Round! Find the Floor" and "Rush Ahead! Don't Look Back!" by defeating it or another Pokémon in its evolution line and obtaining a Slate. Whether that slate is for Ampharos or not won't be known until after defeating either level's Boss.

[edit] Trading Card Game

Ampharos is listed in the Black/White promo set and as a Rare Card in Pokémon Organized Play Series 7. Ampharos is listed as a Common Card in the VS (2; 1 Jasmine, 1 Lance) set, and as a Rare Card in the Neo Genesis, Neo revelation, Neo Destiny, Expedition (2), Aquapolis, EX Dragon (EX Card), EX Team Rocket Returns, EX Unseen Forces, EX Dragon Frontiers (Delta Species Card), Secret Wonders, Platinum, HeartGold/SoulSilver, and Call of Legends sets. Ampharos is also listed as an Ultra Rare card in the HeartGold/SoulSilver set.

[edit] Anime/Manga Information

[edit] Anime

In a parallel to the games Gold, Silver and Crystal, Jasmine's Ampharos, which lights a lighthouse near Olivine City, was sick during the episode Fight for the Light; the medicine was delivered in the episode Throwing in the Noctowl! Watt also used an Ampharos during the episode Manectric Charge!

[edit] Movies

Ampharos has yet to appear in any of the films as of writing.

[edit] Manga

In Pokémon Adventures Jasmine has a Ampharos that was rescued with her from the Bell Tower by Gold and Silver.

[edit] Pokémon Information

[edit] Competitive Battling

Ampharos finds itself in the Never-Utilized and Rarely-Utilized Tiers of Competitive Battling. Ampharos isn't the typical Electric-Type as it doesn't have either low Defenses or high Speed. It doesn't have a real recovery move outside of Rest, which means it can still be worn down.
