Recently, humans have gotten more sympathetic toward these creatures, thanks to studies showing their innate intelligence. One Electivire specimen named Ellie is capable of speaking her own form of sign language, as well as communicating with humans via other means. Even the aformented giant Electivire received a more sympathetic interpretation. However, early revelations of the intelligence of these and other primate Pokémon lead to a movie where such Pokémon – the Electabuzz line included – [[PlanetOfTheApes successfully take over the world]], and, despite the fact that most primate Pokémon seem comfortable with their position, the idea has remained popular enough that the movie received several sequels – as well as two [[RiseOfThePlanetOfTheApes reboots]].

Like most Electric types, members of the Electabuzz line carry many electrochemical cells within their bodies for the purpose of using electrical attacks. Notably, the highest concentrations of these cells on the body differ depending on the evolutionary stage: Elekid carry them in the muscles at the base of their arms (hence their habit of “charging” attacks by spinning their arms), Electabuzz have more in their chest, while Electivire carry the most in their two tails. All forms, however, have a good number of these cells in their hands and fingers, contributing to the legendary power of their “Thunderpunch” attacks. Interestingly, breeding these Pokémon with certain other Pokémon will result in offspring that can use ice and fire based punches as well, leading to much cross-breeding. Electivire in particular are known to be able to breathe fire and cause massive earth tremors with the right TMs.

The Electabuzz is also the mascot for a team in the Johto League Baseball association. The team's career has been a rocky one between losing and winning streaks, leaving it with a relativly small yet dedicated fan base.

Electivire expound on this threat – since they are the dominant members of their society in the wild, they often initially feel superior to the other Pokemon on the team, and will shove them out of the way when tough opponents are at hand. The heavy levels of testosterone in both males and females can cause them to experience severe bouts of aggression – most exemplified by poorly-trained, enraged Electivire beating on their opponents long after said opponents had given up. Even after overcoming this initial superiority complex, they are often protective of who they consider to be members of their “troop,” and will assault any perceived threats if not properly socialized. Note, however, that despite the above descriptions, the depiction of these creatures as mindless, savage brutes is pretty much untrue, and they can be very caring, loyal, and downright friendly Pokémon when given proper care. However, they are still far from “cute and cuddly” and it is not recommended to keep the latter two stages as pets, or let novice trainers use them. (With proper caution, Elekid can be owned by both as long as it is given access to an Everstone.) Some Leagues require Electabuzz to pass a behavioral test before their trainer is permitted to evolve it, due to the aformented issues.

Elekid have a mostly herbivorous lifestyle, feeding on berries and other fruits, occasionally supplementing their diet with small mammal, bird, and Bug Pokemon. Electabuzz have a pretty even diet of animal and plant matter, feeding on larger prey than Elekid. Electivire are apex predators, hunting down large herbivore Pokémon and killing them with a combination of electric shocks from their tails and sheer force. Electivire, will, however, happily eat fruits and berries every so often.

Electabuzz are significantly more primatoid than their pre-evolutions, having fully-developed hands with opposable thumbs, longer limbs, and a tail. Their horns also more closely resemble the nubs of a Girafarig at this stage.

Even before they were regarded as pests due to feeding on power supplies, the members of this line were often vilified as dumb brutes only capable of malice and occasionally lust. One of the most famous examples of the latter was a movie series where a [[KingKong giant Electivire]] from an island populated by prehistoric Pokémon kidnaps a woman and carries her up one of the largest skyscrapers in Castelia City, only to eventually be shot down by planes.
