Because paralysis has nothing to do with electricity... I mean electricity CAN paralyze you, but so can many other things That's why things like Body Slam paralyze, because it ends up crippling the Pokemon
Body Slam is literally the only paralyzing move that has nothing to do with electricity though. That's my point here. Every paralyzing move EXCEPT FOR ONE involves electricity. Heck, the animation for it is electricity!
Never understood why Glare paralyzes... Lick, too.
Not like those are common moves either. >_> I'm still ticked at Static always crippling my Electric types though. I mean, Magnezone is a FREAKING MAGNET.
Have you ever heard of being "paralyzed by fear" I'm guessing that's why glare paralysis. --- Brody@Visceral 1289-8442-1603
Maybe when battling, your Electivire produces "Plus" electricity, but the enemy Ampharos defending against the attack reads your movements and counters with "Minus" electricity. Since electricity has two separate charges, it's entirely possible an opposite charge could break through and enter the nervous system.
