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.

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

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

Emolga is in the Field Egg Group, and its Egg will take approximately 5,120 Steps to hatch. It takes Emolga One Million Experience Points to reach Level 100.
