"The Japanese name of this move, かみなり Kaminari, can refer to both thunder and lightning. This explains the inaccuracy in the English name, as thunder is the sound produced from lightning, the electrostatic discharge that the move refers to. A similar situation occurs with ThunderPunch."

thunder is the shockwave from lightning and if you was standing point blank in that shockwave it would kill you, that **** is like a non fiery explosion.

Nope.

Thunder is caused when lightning (most commonly) superheats the air around the bolt, causing it to expand rapidly. Immediately afterwards, the bolt disappeared, the heating element is removed and the vacuum-like cylinder around the lightning rod collapses with a huge amount of force. If one were to be in this shockwave zone, it would wreak havoc upon them, just like a supermassive shockwave.

Granted, thunder doesn't need lightning. However it would be rather hard to illustrate thunder without the lightning. As well, people think of thunder as a consequence of lightning anyway. Therefore a larger bolt is used to represent thunder, as it would accurately create the needed shockwave, at the same time as being a powerful visual effect.

In Sailor Moon, I forget which on it is, but one of the girls throws a ball of lightning and yell "THUNDERRRR" It always cracked me up.

Jus wondering... Thunder usually does the lightning first, then the rumbling sound, but in the attack animation, it does the rumbling before the lightning
