One word awesome. Luxray is a very good pokemon if you raise good and teach it thunder. It’s thunder is very powerful. It also has moves like thunder fang discharge and wild bolt. You can teach other good moves like giga impact or hyper beam. Luxrays special attack and attack are very good. It also looks cool too.
Luxray has amazing stats, it’s attack is powerful. The fact he learns a move I’ve used to KO most pokemon out there as a Shinx is amazing. THis move I’m speaking of is Crunch. I understand Jolteon has Volt absorb, however, Luxray has non electric moves that are killer, Giga Impact with his Attack Stat, talk about a powerhouse. Luxray’s defense isn’t bad either, it would definitely outlast Joltean if going back and forth. Jolteon was first, but Luxray came along, and let’s face it, Pikachu doesn’t belong on the top 10, he’s mainly popular for being the face of the anime but all he’s good for is to get your future Raichu a nice move set, Raichu has better stats than Pikachu, but it makes sense, Pikachu evolves into Raichu. In short terms, Luxray deserves #1.
Luxray is probably my favorite Pokemon period, let alone electric type. His/her only downfall is speed, and even that is about average. He always heads my team, He took over as my starter when I first tried the nuzlocke challenge as well. I love this Pokemon.
Amazing speed and special attack, a boss at using thunderbolt, can easily sweep your foe’s pokemon with choice specs and annoy them to **** and back while regaining HP by switching in on electric type moves with Volt Absorb and look at that spiky fur! It’s amazing!
… And that’s just a few of the reasons why jolteon is the best electric type ever. Way better then Pikachu and Raichu.
Wow thanks man you’re right about jolteon is way better than Pikachu and raichu
With the highest speed stat of all good electric Pokemon (sorry electrode) 130 base speed out-speeds almost all other Pokemon. Jolteon also packs a 110 base special attack. Its other stats such as HP, defense, and attack might be lower than average. However it does have a great base 95 special defense stat. It may also have a small move set compared to other Pokemon, but it does have all it needs to sweep teams. Overall great stats, great design, and a great Pokemon overall.
Jolteon is, I belive, the best electric type; Fast and powerful. Like all electric pokemon, he has no business with earth types. And you can swich him in on electric attacks thanks to Volt absorb (Those attacks are kinda common on powerful water pokemon like starmie, octillery, etc. ) and obliterate them, with electric attacks. Even a pikachu with light ball can’t do what jolteon does, as jolteon is faster and hits just as hard.
Jolteon is my number one favorite electric type, and it forever will be. thanks to him, I was able to DEMOLISH the elite four and DESTROY red in the good old days of pokemon blue. WAY better than pikachu by a long shot.
This cute yellow mouse definitely beats the other electric Pokemon, he has the sweetest moves and the cutest face! I would love to have Pikachu to be actually real.
This is not ‘cutest an overrated pokemon list’, this is best electric pokemon list. Plus, I would love to see pikachu electric shocking you in real life and you screaming. Not so cute anymore?
Great move set. I love how it learns thunderbolt at level 26 most other Pokemon don’t even learn it. not to mention is so cute
The electric sacks in its cheeks are high voltage. It is also very kind and after evolving it becomes the ultimate electric type
Pikachu is cute and powerful at the same time! Crazy, right?!
Its really cool and has an amazing stat total yo should vote 4 him
Zapdos is cool you should really vote for him belive me I am a Pokemon Expert.
Its a bird that can turn any pokemon to a crisp
Er. Why is Pikachu stronger than Zapdos? In the anime Pikachu lost to Zapdos in an Electric battle! Not to mension it is a Legandary Pokemon!
Magnezone is just a beast. Easily one of the best Electric types in existence and belonging to my favorite Electric type family (You just can’t beat the Mags). Let’s go through every reason why he is a beast.
1) That Typing
Electric/Steel is a typing combination that belongs to no Pokemon other than the trio of Magnemite, Magneton, and Magnezone. This is an absolutely amazing type combination, making Magnezone and its little siblings the most resistant Pokemon of all time. Eleven resistances and an immunity, that’s twelve! Water isn’t an issue since Magnezone can just supereffective zap that out of the sky.
2) Magnet Pull
Magnet Pull is an absolutely great ability that only the Magnemite family and Nosepass family possess. And while Probopass may have a ridiculous but somehow majestic mustache, it is absolutely useless, and as such cannot use Magnet Pull to any use. That leaves us with the Magnemite family. Magnezone is the bane of steel types.
LISTEN UP GUYS I’m GONNA SETTLE THIS ARGUMENT RIGHT NOW. The whole thing with electric types is that they’re pretty much all about special. And magnezone has amazing special attack. In fact, IT IS THE HIGHEST SPECIAL ATTACK OF ALL THE ELECTRIC POKEMON. AND ALL THE STEEL TYPE POKEMON. If you still think some little yellow rat is better than magnezone at this point there’s obviously no helping you. And if having record breaking stats isn’t enough, IT ALSO HOLDS THE RECORD FOR MOST RESISTACES/IMMUNITYS. 12 FLIPPIN RESISTANCIES. ADD AN IMMUNITY AND THAT’S THIRTEEN. AND HE’S A FLIPPIN UFO. Electrivire has highest attack? Good for him. But attack doesn’t help when you’re an ELECTRIC type. Only special attack matters, and magnezone wins there for both his types.
-HIGHEST SPECAL ATTACK OF NOT ONLY ALL ELECTRIC POKEMON, BUT ALL STEEL POKEMON TOO
-HOLDS THE RECORD FOR MOST RESISTANCES. THIRTEEN, PEOPLE.
-HE’S A UFO.
-JOLTEON HAS HIGH SPECIAL ATTACK? MEET MAGNEZONE.
While Electric types are known a lot for their spectacular Speed, Special Attack, and scarce weaknesses, Magnezone brings something completely new to the table. Yes he has 3 weaknesses (more than many of the notable Electric types), and yes Ground is Magnezone’s Achilles heel, yet he is so much tougher than any of his Electric friends!
He brags 12 different resistances, an immunity to Poison, and the highest Special Attack Stat among not just Electric, but Steel types as well! Magnezone can become immune to Ground type as well with Magnet Rise and his Magnet Pull+Hidden Power Fire combination turns him into an extremely unexpected Steel Slayer. Worried about his poor speed? Slap some EV’s on there and he’ll be prime.
Hands down on of the best if not THE BEST Electrics in the Game.
Okay, I caught a magnemite in s/m and ORAS, and he singlehandedly beat 3/5 of the final people in ORAS, and 2/4 elite 4 and champion in s/m.
any ground type attack
AMPHAROS IS PWNAGE! My ampharos was practically invincible and helped me OWN the elite four! Plus you can catch a Mareep nice and early in the Johto games so by the time you’re at the pokemon league your Ampharos will dominate! Mine did, and it never let me down
Ampharosis hands down the best non-legendary electric. With the right nature, its speed isn’t such a problem, and it hits HARD with special electric attacks. Also in B2&W2 it learns cotton guard which “DRASTICALLY increases defense” makes up for its other weakness BIG time 😀
Easy winner, come on it’s the only electric type that’s Dragon. Now Ampharos my super charged friend is OP But when it gets amazing hair and mega evolves that’s a hole new level.
So amazing 200 damage yo!
Oh come on it is so obvious that electivire can win all the electric pokemon because it has the highest attack and it has it’s ability that is motor drive that makes it really fast if you are using electric type moves to it and it makes it a big threat to your pokemon as brock said it and besides it can use ice punch that can take out a ground type and he is my favourite pokemon because of the reason that someone else said in this web site that you can see it if you click more comments about elctivire
Hi remember me? It is me who said Oh come on it is so obvious that electivire can win all the electric pokemon because it has the highest attack and it has it’s ability that is motor drive that makes it really fast if you are using electric type moves to it and it makes it a big threat to your pokemon as brock said it in anime with PAUL’S ELECTIVIRE TOO and besides it can use ice punch that can take out a ground type and he is my favourite pokemon because of the reason that someone else said in this web site that you can see it if you click more comments about electivire I just came here to beg for people to vote more for electivire
Electivire is a potential threat for opposing trainers. If you raise it right and power it up with a life orb, it would be powerful even if it’s not fast. I don’t know why this powerhouse isn’t a competitive Pokemon like jolteon. It has the defense and power and all it needs is a thunderbolt to activate it’s motor drive for it to be trouble for the opposing trainer. A jolteon may have high speed and special attack but, once it gets hit, it’s done. The real competition is between luxray and electivire but, in my opinion electivire is the most powerful electric type.
How the heck are all these other Pokémon in front of this discharging, wire tail, and giant beast of a Pokémon?
Raikou is a legendary making him strong already. He also has has amazing speed and special attack making him amazing. Most little kids may not vote for him since he is a slightly older pokemon and you don’t see him in the new seasons of the anime.
Raikou’s exceptional speed and special attack have made him a great competitive Pokemon since he was introduced in Gold and Silver. He has never dropped below the UU mark in any generation, currently residing in BL for ORAS. Rainout has a variety of awesome sets ranging from assault vest, to a deadly specs set, and even a very dangerous calm mind set. If that wasn’t enough, he looks badass. I mean, how could you go wrong with a saber tooth that shoots bolts of lighting
Yeah raikou is great I mean he is a legendary
Raikou is a rash cans that people throw chicken boy he so weak that ivysaur use one move it aready died
Way better than Pikachu. He has pretty good special attack and attack, so he can be physical, special, or mixed. Plus, he’s super cute.
Do people actually think pikachu is better than it’s cooler and more powerful evolve form? Pikachu is only at #4 because the T.V. show has makes people LOVE pikachu. WOW! Pikachu can defeat rock, ground, and it’s better form! This is totally showing that pikachu is the best in the game! The T.V. show was the only reason pikachu became the mascot. If the T.V. show was never made, the mascot would have to be charizard or Mewtwo.
Definitely! How is an ugly yellow rat (joke) better than it’s more powerful form? It’s apparently cuter, and that randomly makes it better.
THAT’S BULL! (sorry, too mad, lemme calm down) We FINALLY have a list where Raichu is higher than Pikachu! I always try to get a Thunderstone when my Pichu evolves! I respect your opinion if you prefer Pikachu, though.
A legendary electric dragon Pokemon that is completely black with red eyes that glows when its body generates lightning? ENOUGH SAID!
Woah woah really do you guys really think jolteon or luxray are better than zekrom you guys have gone mad zekrom is not only a legendary but can destroy the world with its tail you all think jolteon is better because of its high special attack, well zekrom is a very good psychical attacker and he has two signature moves bolt strike and fusion bolt he learns outrage too also rock slide jolteon still hasnt gotten a new move yet he still has thunderbolt which is a great electric move but I mean come on how is jolteon better than a legendary electric pokemon zekrom who can destroy the whole world zekrom may not be my favorite electric pokemon (favorite is luxray) but this isn’t about you’re favorite electric pokemon its about the best and the strongest electric type pokemon and that honor goes to zekrom sorry but I only say the truth zekrom is the best electric type pokemon ever he should be number 1 not number 9
I completely agree with everyone voting for Zekrom: it’s cool, powerful, and just awesome. It can KO any Pokemon easily, even if its opponent has Volt Absorb. Zekrom can learn Draco Meteor, which, although reduces the Sp. Attack harshly, it’ll be worth it because the opponents will be knocked out a million times already. Plus, it is a legendary, which are just awesome. Also, its ability Teravolt is very useful. For example, Earthquake will effect a Pokemon with Levitate. So why is Zekrom only the eighth?
Another thing:Pokemon like Pikachu are completely overrated just because they are all heroic and stuff in the anime and Zekrom and the powerful Pokemon are all evil and stuff. But this really isn’t true. And if Pikachu were to be in my party when I was battling the Pokemon League, it would have been smashed to bits, unlike with Zekrom. I used Zekrom to battle the Pokemon League and not only did I win twice, Zekrom didn’t even faint.
