This bug report is a parity issue with Java.
In the Java version, the lightning rod emits particles during a thunderstorm (like lightning). There are no particles in the bedrock.
Steps to reproduce:
- Place a lightning rod.
- Wait for a thunderstorm.
The lightning rod will not have any particles.
Particles will appear (watch the video).
The lightning rod must be in the rain (there must be no blocks above it).
