Top Ten Best Electric Pokemon

The Top Ten

Luxray Luxray, known in Japan as Rentorar, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

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.

Actually Luxray is a lynx, but I still agree with being one of if not the best electric type Pokemon

Jolteon Jolteon, known in Japan as Thunders, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Jolteon-
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 - JolteonIsAwesome

Jolteon is a boss the other electric types are bad compared to it ( sorry magnezone lovers )

Incredible speed pretty sure he is the fastest or second fastest pokemon ever. Only is weak to ground, but pretty sure in later games in can learn shadow ball which is a ghost move and ghost moves can kill all pokemon but dark and learn shadow ball and use it against ground and your good. The best lightning pokemon ever(besides maybe pikachu).

Jolteon is amazing I destroyed with it in everything u think Magnezone and Zekrom are better Luxray is okay

Pikachu Pikachu are a species of Pokémon, fictional creatures that appear in an assortment of video games, animated television shows and movies, trading card games, and comic books licensed by The Pokémon Company, a Japanese corporation.

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? - Yuanlong

Definitely the best electric Pokemon. The mascot of the franchise with great moves, a cute face and voice. Should be number one instead of number three

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

Jolteon isn't one of the top 10 cutest electric pokemon. So why is it at the top? Even Pikachu is better! Zapdos should be 1st!

Zapdos Zapdos, known in Japan as Thunder, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

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

I like Magnezone a lot, but Zapdos looks cooler and have only two weaknesses, rock and ice. The two common against flying, excluding electric. Zapdos can just come up behind a Pokemon and zap them 'til they are fried to eat. Zapdos sounds dangerous in real life but training one could be awesome when telling your friends that you have a pet Zapdos, they would run away in fright.

Raichu Raichu, known in Japan as the same name, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

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.

One of my favorite pokemon I love the entire Raichu line but Raichu looks very cute and cool at the same time I just prefer Alolan Raichu to it through

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.

Magnezone

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. With Magnet ...more

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. ...more

INSANE! Played through the elite foue kahili and beat all her pokemon at only level 53!

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.

Ampharos Ampharos is an Electric-type Pokémon introduced in Generation II . It evolves from Flaaffy starting at level 30 . It is the final form of Mareep . It can Mega Evolve into Mega Ampharos using the Ampharosite, in which it becomes an Electric/Dragon-type .

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 :D

Best electric pokemon ever. Mega evolution is cool as well adding hair.

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.

Electivire

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

The electric BEAST. This guy could easily take down any other of the electric types. Plus the thunder/ice/fire punch thing makes its moveset very varied. Plus it is a literal LEGEND

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 awesome Pokemon and also my favorite pokemon of all time

Raikou Raikou, known in Japan as the same name, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

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

I'm partial to raikou myself, and I've heard how amazing it is, especially considering he's a legendary dog. Also, me and my friends were deciding who would be which legendary dog and I got raikou.

Zekrom Zekrom, known in Japan as the same name, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

A legendary electric dragon Pokemon that is completely black with red eyes that glows when its body generates lightning? ENOUGH SAID!

He is legendry pokemon. And the most powerful electric pokemon

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

Why is he here?! HE SHOULD BE ON TOPPP! He is a legendary pokemon and best pokemon! I don't know what to say, he's juSt thE bEst

The Contenders

Eelektross

He has no weakness at all. No typing is super effective against him. He is the only Pokemon, as far as I know, who isn't super effected by any type. He also has an amazing move set, is cool looking and adorable, has actually pretty good stats, and is heavily underrated, so much so it is very rarely seen in competitive play. If you use it properly, Eelektross can become a beast.

Eelektross is my favorite pokemon of all time for it being the best of the non weak trio.Eelektross fails in slow speed but that's fine as it's bulky so make it bulky.It's got great attack so you can balance that attack and defense to make it a great balanced pokemon.The ability not only makes it not only not weak to anything but takes out the entire ground typing.The moves he can learn are wonderful like drain punch, flawthrower, crunch, protect, coil, thunder punch, wild charge, discharge, brick break, and much more.It's wonderful ABSOL-Okay not going there also I love the design it's a leech monster eel fish thing that sucks the life force out of it's prey.That's pretty cool.Jolteons the best? No it's not just because it's speedy doesn't mean it's good.It's a weak pokemon in defense elecktross can take at least 1 hit before dying and you'll know it.My perfect Eelektross would be thunder punch, drain punch, coil, and protect with leftovers.Electric types might be needed to be ...more

Eelectross is overpowering if controlled by Ingo or Emmet I,m not sure which

Are you kidding this pokemon should be on top 3. Who votes here? Kids? Great attack and defense. Has levitate. Great moveset. What else do you want?

Manectric

WHAT?! THAT Pokemon IS THIS LOW?! MANECTRIC IS SO MUCH POWERFUL! For me, it totally beat the entire elite four and champion in emerald, excepted Drake because it has a god damn Flygon! (Note: Flygon is the best dragon ever). Seriously?! Just check his stats and even the generation after emerald, he was able to learn FLAMETHROWER! And now, Manectric has a mega-evolution! Does that mean anything for you?! MANECTRIC KICKS PIKACHU'S BUTT IN NO TIME! WHY PIKACHU IS SO HIGH?! I could understand Raichu, but WHY PIKACHU?!?!? And if you think I am mad, it's that you did not see my opinion of Charizard...

Manectric is an excellent electric Pokemon. I wouldn't say the best, but should at least be in the top 10. Most of the Pokemon in the top 10 don't have Mega Evolutions. Guess who does? The Discharge Pokemon itself. I could talk about how it's stats are so great, which, in honesty, are pretty good, and that it's Mega just makes them even better, and that it looks pretty cool and all that, but...

He is so cool, he is very strong. ( Other than the legendary electric ones ) He is very reliable, especially in the 8th gym in the Hoenn region ( only in Ruby and Sapphire ) And he is useful for the champion ( Emerald only ) And he is just great for other gyms.

Dominated in oras with Swampert and salmence. Never ever let me down.(only against Steven Stone)

Galvantula

This Spider *claps* needs to be in the top 10
I love this pokemon it's a Electric Spider who doesn't like this?

Galvantula is awesome why must it be number 12 while it should be number 1

I don't like spiders but this Pokemon is too awesome to be a spider he is dang awesome. epic speed and sp attack and I personally like its movepool. I use serebii's agilliball it works well but I use a different nature +speed (helps electro ball and attacks faster) -attack (useless I never use attack with him). Well that's my mark so hope he will be number 1 I know so

Galvantula is plain and simple a complete badass. His speed will never let you down and he moves first 99 percent of the time. His move sets are incredible and his abilities knock other Pokemon off the chart. Just the fact that he has SIX EYES AND IS A GIGANTIC MOTHIM EATING SPIDER is enough for me to love him. Not so great with attack but special attack makes up for that. And besides if you know how to use him it wont matter because electric types are super effective against so many things anyway.

Zebstrika

He has great speed he looks the best plus he's a zebra. Also he has good power... and he is over all amazing

So beautiful. It should be higher than Elektross who is a ugly beast.

Zebstrika is just badass. It gives off the impression of "I will DESTROY you if you hurt me or any of my friends!. " Its cry is badass and it sounds like it could scare off any pokémon that dares threaten it. Also, its not another Pikachu clone (*cough*Emolga*cough*).

He's a zebra Pokemon. That's all that is needed for him to be the best 'mon of all time.

Rotom Rotom, known in Japan as the same name, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

This should be number 1! it is by far the best electric and cute pokemon!

Now this makes me sad. Rotom is my favorite Pokemon overall, and I thought he'd make it at least to the low part of the top 10. He can change forms, which adds a very high level of strategy to it, although his normal form allows him to use its ghost-type moves to their best potential. You can just use Rain Dance, then Thunder (Thunder can't miss when it's raining), and when they're paralyzed because of Thunder, use Hex. An amazing set-up that only Rotom can fully take advantage of, which I use a lot when I battle tough opponents. UP-VOTE ROTOM!

Rotom is awesome plus rotom spelled backwards is motor I think rotom's best form is wash form or mow or lawn form which is water and grass types tell me what you think is rotom's best form tell me

So cute and powerful! Two things! Come on guys! we all know that rotom is the best! It can go through cables! Shoo Luxrey! VOTE NOW! It can change its type by changing its type! Like heat rotom, wash rotom plus more luxrey can't do that! THE BEST POKEMON!

Minun Minun, known in Japan as the same name, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Joke time! Why are Plusle and Minun always together?
BECAUSE THEY GOT MARRIED! Get it?

Like the best Pokemon ever. I love him, and when I was little I made my e-mail password his name And also, its not Minum. Its Minun. N, not M. Just wanted to say because it bugs me when people say it Minum, and a lot of people do. I also like Plusle, But Minun more

It is super adorable and so cute I just love it

My minun beat a rock type team

Emolga Emolga, known in Japan as Emonga, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

This pokemon was the root cause for the electric gyms in gen 5 being the hardest challenge in every run through I have had. Its Flying gets rid of the obnoxious ground counter and, being an electric type, it normalizes the electric weakness. Due to it being resistant to most electric counters, it is one of my go to electric types.

Only reason I don't use it on most runthroughs is because it can't use fly, making it an inconvenient flying type

I just used it in a Pokemon y play through and I thought it would be dumb (me and some of my friends did a one type challenge) once I got acrobatics I practically one hit everything no joke except for Pokemon that it was weak against and not to mention if things are bad volt switch also a combination I used was I would nuzzle (paralyzes) and then electro ball (based off how much faster you are) this nuzzle electro ball has let me kill a haxorus no probs

This pokemon's flying type makes up for the fact that electric type moves can't affect ground types. Like Swampert, it is a dual type pokemon whose one type makes up for the weakness of the other type. Emolga is underrated.

Come on now it's the best Pokemon that doesn't evolve with great moves and types and speed it can wipe out almost all Pokemon

Pichu Pichu is an Electric type Baby Pokémon introduced in Gen. 2. It evolves into Pikachu. It is in the in undiscovered egg group, since it's a baby Pokémon. It is No. 172 in the Pokedex. It can be called a joke character in Super Smash Bros. Melee, because of its awful stats and weak moves. After its ...read more.

Pichu literally somehow made it to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate come on he should be 1st everyone. But there are better Smash characters like Joker

Its easily the weakest electric type

First of all whoever said Jynx is a bad Pokemon is an idiot and also Pichu shouldn't be higher than Electabuzz if it was better with stats it would actually get used but it also takes a lot to use just to sweep which is why it's in NU and belongs there

My name is sophie I love pichu It's my fave baby pokemon And one of my fave electric types I have a new pichu plush And a pichu in pokemon moon pichu is so cute

Plusle Plusle, known in Japan as Prasle, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Cute and powerful electric pokemon... very helping in battles

Plusle may not be the strongest pokemon out there, but I used one on my ORAS team and it dominated. Take it over any electric type any day

I see Plusle and Minun use Helping Hand every time I battle them (Pokemon Diamond Version) it does absolutely nothing

This may not float you're boat but Plusle is actually decent and can troll people if you use it right. You can lock you're opponent into a move with encore then set up nasty plots and maybe a substitute and BOOM proceed to sweep. Plus (heheh get it plus because it's plusle) It's so cute, it outdoos every electric type for ultimate cuteness in my opinion. Plusle you'll always be cool in my world.

Pachirisu Pachirisu, known in Japan as the same name, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

This one is the cooliest and the best electric pokemn... aside from it's adorable appearance,,, it also have cool attack swhich fits in battling and pokemon contest

I'm from America and just that cute little pachirisu made me go for Se Jun Park in the 2015 pokemon world tournament. And its cute

Super Fang, Nuzzle, Attract and Follow me needs to be used the person who won the tournament in 2015 won thanks to Pachirisu get it in the #1 spot

Pachirisu has got a very very strong thunderbolt attack but its other moves are quit weak but it is very fast.!

Heliolisk

Oh man this guy is amazing! Easily the best electric type yet! Why he is electric/normal rather than just electric I don't know but who cares, he's immune to ghost attacks and is overall a fantastic Pokemon all around!

With the ability to heal it when hit with a water move. So in double battles use surf if your team mate is Heliolisk

It has high special attack and speed + bulldoze which can defeat other electric types + razor wind making it strong against grass types.

Able to learn surf and has STAB on normal and electric type moves make it superior

Thundurus Thundurus, known in Japan as Voltolos, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Thundurus shouldn‘t be 22 Place and thundurus is also a legendary so why it is in the 22 place

I would say this is the best electric-type pokemon. It should be first!

I have thundurus he's kinda cool I replaced his attacks with sky attack and thunderbolt

This guy has balls of thunder showering on you.

Electabuzz

Put it in top 10... it is a wonderful Pokemon

I own it and he is a awesome sweeper against the elite four

It has lots of electricity it's good

He's good but VERY hard to find

Alolan Raichu Alolan Raichu, known in Japan as the same name, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Alolan Raichu can use Psychic and use it on anybody

Why is he not higher seriously bottom place he should be at least in the TOP 10

same as Raichu should be higher

adorable

Shinx Shinx, known in Japan as Kolink, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Well, this isn't much of a defense for shinx, but you really should spell shinx's name right. Thumbs up to this if you agree that you should spell a Pokemon's name right.

Yay! Shinx, the cute electric cat Pokemon! Don't forget, IT LOOKS LIKE IT'S WEARING PANTS.

Shinx is a very cute Pokemon. I just love him

What a lil cutie
