Galvantula, the EleSpider Pokémon. Galvantula attacks its prey by shooting electrically charged threads and its front mandibles can hold down opponents.
– Ash’s Pokedex
Galvantula (and its pre-evolution) has a unique type combination, Bug/Electric. It’s not too bad a combination, as it balances out Electric’s weakness to Ground and Bug’s weakness to Flying. Galvantula is based on a spider yet again, as if Ariados/Spinarak aren’t enough (I don’t like spiders DX), though I find Galvantula less creepy than Ariados/Spinarak….
Stat-wise, it’s quite fast (good for Electro Ball), and has pretty good Sp Attack. But in exchange, has poor defenses. It (and Joltik) has a signature move in Electroweb, an Electric move with 55 power and 95 acc, and lowers target’s Speed by one stage. Good to use in conjunction with Electro Ball I guess.
