Zekrom Part Electric-Type?

Rest in peace my nana.

Over a day ago, Pokemon Sunday host Shokotan posted a small post on her blog stating her love for the design of the Pokemon Trainer she is voicing in The Ruler of Illusions: Zoroark (the Trainer loves Electric-types and dresses like a Magnemite fangirl). Shokotan loves Electric-types herself, having voiced Spiky-Eared Pichu in the Japanese Arceus and the Jewel of Life movie. However, her blog post originally had an additional sentence at the end that has since been removed: “I want Zekrom because Electric-types are cool!” The sentence could have been removed because she realized she was leaking information that has not been revealed yet or simply because she was mistaken, but considering she is the host of Pokemon Sunday and they film their episodes in advance (sometimes up to two weeks), it’s possible what she said is true.

In terms of speculation, Zekrom’s generator-esque tail seems to give credence to it possibly being an Electric-type. Additionally, if you look at its head appendages, it seems the tip of the one we can see is actually glowing blue, similar to an LED light. This may explain why the rest of its body has some blue lighting on the edges – perhaps it is reflecting the light. Not to mention the fact that the appendages look vaguely similar to lightning bolts. As for Reshiram, as we pointed out the other day, it looks like its tail is made to resemble a torch, complete with a symbolic flame coming out of it. So, it seems we have several theories to explain what Reshiram and Zekrom are – Dragon / Light or Dragon / Fire, and Dragon / Darkness or Dragon / Electric? Hopefully we’ll find out soon, but it’s fun to always speculate!
