While they are rarely seen in popular culture outside of horror movies, Eelektrik are seen as minor enemies in [[VideoGame/{{Psychonauts}} a cult videogame about a psychic going to a special summer camp that trains others of his kind]], and the ravenous tendencies of starved Eelektrik are shown in [[ASeriesOfUnfortunateEvents a popular series of children's books.]] On the Internet, one popular form of shock picture is to photoshop Eelektrik mouths unto fingers to freak people out.

The preferred habitat of the Tynamo Line tends to depend on evolutionary stage. Tynamo spend their lives inside underground rivers bordering areas of high magnetism, with the one within Chargestone Cave being the most famous example. To avoid predators they can occasionally float away from the river and enter the main cave itself, where they are most commonly encountered and caught by trainers. Tynamo tend to have a poor resistance against high water temperatures like those found in the tropics, which is why they reside mainly in temperate waters.

[[SeldomSeenSpecies Tynamo and its evolutions are rarely seen in most media]], but they are considered consumable (being much meatier than most other piscine Pokemon) and were seen as a delicacy amongst the Unovan nobility in medieval times. Though a popular Pokemon amongst competitive trainers due to their power and versatility, they have gained somewhat of a negative reputation over time due to the old practice of Unovan nobles starving schools of Eelektrik (or just one lone Eelektross) and throwing people they were displeased with to them to be [[HighOctaneNightmareFuel eaten alive]], as well as being seen as pests due to their habit of hunting choice aquatic species such as Basculin. The fact that the infamous true leader of Team Plasma, Ghetsis Harmonia, happened to be the owner of an Eelektross has done little to dissuade this opinion. At the same time, the fact that the Champion of the Sinnoh region, Cynthia [[NoLastNameGiven ****]] has recently acquired an Eelektross is starting to give the species a slight reputation boost amongst the general public.

One of the most peculiar features of Eelektross is the astounding number of techniques that it is capable of learning when trained due to its highly developed omnisacs, with ironically only Water type moves (save for RainDance) that it is incapable of learning. This makes them highly valued amongst trainers for their versatility. Unlike the mostly pelagic Eelektrik, Eelektross stay closer to shore so that they can better catch prey due to their body plan making them not quite as adept swimmers as their previous morphs.

This makes them highly valued amongst trainers for their versatility. Unlike the mostly pelagic Eelektrik, Eelektross stay closer to shore so that they can better catch prey due to their body plan making them not quite as adept swimmers as their previous morphs.



Eelektrik, on the other hand, are pelagic Pokémon that spend much of their time off Unova’s coast once they’re old enough, rarely coming close to shore except to breed and watch over their Tynamo progeny. Being fairly good travelers, they can also be found as far out as the continental shelf, and there have been reports of vagrants in other regions. The few examples of wild Eelektross, due to the rarity of an Eelektrik actually acquiring a Thunderstone, tend to stay close to shore so that they can better ambush prey on the shoreline when they’re not hunting the diet of their previous morphs, though they still happen to be fairly good swimmers, if not quite as good as Eelektrik.

Within Unova, the best chance of getting a sighting of a wild Eelektrik would be within the Seaside Cave of northeastern Unova.

Eelektross can do everything their earlier forms can do, but are made even deadlier due to the addition of proper arms and highly developed omnisacs, which was showcased when a group of Pokémon Rangers attempted to subdue a trained Eelektross that had gotten startled and went on a mini-rampage as a result. Said Eelektross was capable of firing gouts of flame, batting down opponents with its arms, tossing large rocks and dirt, and wreathing its claws in emerald flames similar to the kind created by draconic Pokémon and raking enemies with them, making it very hard to properly subdue.

Strangely enough, Tynamo and its evolutions are incapable of breeding with other piscine Pokémon, though they are capable of having viable offspring not only with species such as [[{{FanonPokedex/Shellos}} Gastrodon]] but even Ghost types such as [[{{FanonPokedex/Litwick}} Chandelure]] and [[{{FanonPokedex/Ghastly}} Gengar]]. The reasons for this continue to vex researchers, though it is why some researchers have stated that Tynamo should be placed in a sister clade to other piscine Pokémon because of this.
