Charging a Pikachu

Postby jonathanmarilao2L » Fri Jan 29, 2016 6:41 pm

In the 2014 Final, it asks you to charge a Pikachu, are there a certain objects that you simply cannot charge? Or is it safe to assume anything can be charged? Hence, are the objects that we should know that will simply stop the current?

Practically speaking any substance can be charged up using a high enough potential. However whether that charge is conducted or not depends on the property of the substance. For example - Insulators cannot conduct charge.

Is it safe to assume my level 100 Water type Gyrados would still act as a a strong resister against, say a mere level 17 Pikachu, despite water types inherently being vulnerable to Electric type?

Or should I just be on the safe-side and use a Ground type pokemon like Onyx for the voltmeter I'm trying to fashion?
