Ampharos is an Electric-type Pokémon from the Johto region. It evolves from Flaaffy after being fed 100 candies. Ampharos is the final evolution of Mareep. It can Mega Evolve into Mega Ampharos initially after being given 200 Mega Energy, and 40 afterwards.
Ampharos gives off so much light that it can be seen even from space. People in the old days used the light of this Pokémon to send signals back and forth with others far away.
Massive amounts of energy intensely stimulated Ampharos's cells, apparently awakening its long-sleeping dragon's blood.
