Emolga (エモンガ) is the 93rd Pokémon in the Unova Pokédex. It is an Electric/Flying type, and it is known as the Sky Squirrel Pokémon. Its type combination was previously exclusive to Zapdos since Generation I.

Emolga uses the Static Ability. This Ability has a 30% chance of paralyzing the opponent when the opponent uses an attack that requires physical contact against Emolga. Emolga's Hidden Ability is the Motor Drive Ability. This Ability makes Emolga immune to Electric-type attacks, and when hit by an Electric-type attack, its Speed increases by one level.

Emolga does not evolve, nor does it have a pre-evolved form.
