When pokemon use thunder

#1AlexxPBPosted 1/22/2013 6:45:44 AM
Is it like a real lightning coming down from the clouds or is it like a spell like that guy from Final Fantasy?

'Cuz you know...Surviving a real lightning strike is rather uncommon.

It's electricity generated by the pokemon's body.

Si || Everyone dies. It is how one lives that matters.

The odds of dying from a lightning bolt are about the same as dying from falling out of bed.
Surviving divine judgement from a god... That's somethin'.

Yeah I just found this to back you up:

"Most people would assume that almost all a lightning strike leaves behind is a small pile of ashes. In fact, dying from a lighting strike is relatively uncommon. Mary Ann Cooper, a professor of medicine at the University of Chicago, estimates that nine out of 10 people struck by lightning survive."

We learn something new everyday, I guess.

I could have sworn that I had read the most damaging part of lightning is to your nerves and not actually to any external things.
