Biology

Voltorb is a spherical Pokémon that looks like a Poké Ball with a face, minus the button. The top half is red, while the bottom half is white.

Trivia

  • In the English and European versions of Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, a game called Voltorb Flip is introduced in place of slot machines. The game is similar to Minesweeper, and largely focuses on flipping over cards to multiply the coins currently earned. Some cards, however, have Voltorb on them which will cause the player to lose coins when flipped.
  • Voltorb has the lowest base Attack stat of all Electric-type Pokémon.

Origin

It seems to be based upon the concept of a living Poké Ball (with its Shiny coloration possibly being based on a Great Ball). The design concept may be inheritance from the time when the franchise was known as Capsule Monsters, as early artworks show Poké Balls without the button in the middle.

The idea of them being mistaken for the standard Item Balls is similar to a mimic, a monster archetype commonly found in RPGs.

Given its tendency to explode, it could also be based on a bomb. Its unpredictable tendency to explode, as well as its shape and name, may be a reference to ball lightning.

Name origin

Voltorb is a combination of volt and orb.

Biriridama may be a combination of ビリビリ biribiri (sound of electric shock) and 玉 tama (sphere).
