Don't Try Pikachu's Thunderbolt at Home, Please

In Pocket Monsters, one of Pikachu's attacks is the 100,000-volt Thunderbolt. You've probably seen that in the Pokémon games, anime, and maybe even the manga. Now, you can supposedly see it in real life.

This clip was uploaded a million years ago by YouTube user aiaiaiai00. It's as impressive as it was then. It's as loud, too.
