It evolves into Electruxo starting at level 27.

Along with Raptorch and Orchynx, Eletux is one of the Starter Pokémon of the Tandor region, able to be chosen at the beginning of Pokémon Uranium.

Pokédex entry

Pokédex entry
ELETUX is capable of generating strong magnetic fields around its feet and tail that allow it to walk on water.

Biology

Physiology

Eletux is an average-sized quadruped with horse-like features. It's the biggest of the starters on Tandor. It has oily, fish-like blue skin with a yellow lightning pattern on each side of its body. It has 3 small tails and 1 big tail with an yellow bulb on the tip of each one that are able to generate electricity. Its feet are also yellow and can also generate power.

Special abilities

Eletux's can generate electricity from its four bulbs on its tail that can be then released as a high voltage current. This current can be used generate a magnetic field around its feet that allows it to walk over water. It also can shoot water from its mouth. 

Behavior

Even though Eletux isn't at risk for extinction, it naturally has a low population. That occurs mainly because Eletux and Electruxo don't live in groups, since their magnetic fields generally conflict with each other. They can only live together with their mate, since the generated field between the two of them resonate.

Habitat

Eletux are generally found swimming or hovering over big, pristine water lakes. Uncommonly, they can also be found at the ocean.
