Top 10 Best Electric Type Pokemon

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

Jolteon has an above average, very high Special attack and speed. It's Volt absorb keeps it from taking damage from it'a type that it would normally take damage from. It's unique pure typing like Luxray prevents it from having additional weaknesses, such as Zapdos that is also weak to Rock and Ice type moves due to it being a Flying type. This pure typing, and that typing having only one weakness, definitely gives Jolteon the upper hand in its tier. Although it is ineffective to use against a party that contains a Manectric due to Lightningrod, Jolteon is not my favorite of the Eeveelutions, (although he gets awfully close) and most of Jolteon's special type Attack moves being Electric type, I would say Jolteon is an excellent choice if you are looking for an Electric sweeper. Just hook that baby up with Choice Specs and teach it Thunder and you're good to go!

Jolteon ties for the highest special attack electric type, at 130. It's volt absorb keeps it alive and its immense speed lets it hit hard and faint Pokemon before they have a chance to attack. It's my third in my Ragnarok trio, the first two being Charizard and Dewgong. Its defense is high enough to take a few physical hits and keep going, but that's not the point. One thunder takes down most Pokemon, or perhaps a shadow ball or signal beam. It's a solid eeveelution, and it can take down just about anything in its way.

Protip: teach it shadow ball and toxic. That way it can hit any type For Massive Damage.

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.

Hands down best electric pokemon out of the originals, makes you wonder why Zapdos is 'legendary'; Holds his own against the new ones because of the high special attack, and high speed. Lets face it at high levels its not that much about who hits harder, everyone hits hard. Its about who hits first, and who hits ridiculously hard. Defense and resistances don't matter if you one hit everything except ONE type of pokemons. (And that's why you have the other 5 on your team right? )

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

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.

In short terms, Luxray deserves #1. 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 is pure power. He packs a mean Crunch, and can dish out a devastating Thunder. Ice Fang is great for Ground-Type coverage and The fourth move slot is your choice. Decent Speed, High attack, High Special Attack, and even some decent Defense and Special Defense. I remember using a Luxray beside my Infernape in my first ever Pokemon playthrough. (Platinum) He got to the late seventies and helped carry me through the E4 and Cynthia. Overall, a very powerful mon and worth training up a Shinx. Plus, just look at it! The mixture of black, blue, and gold are perfect for it's design. It's name sounds amazing, and is by far the best electric type in generation 4. Luxray has been, is, and will always be my second favorite Pokemon. Right behind Infernape, and a step above Decidueye. Infernape and Luxray made Generation 4 my favorite gen and made Platinum my favorite Pokemon Game.

I'm not a massive electric type fan. Sure, they're fast little beasts, but I guess they've never sparked my interest. However, after I began playing Pearl, I ran into a Shinx at the beginning of the game. I decided to catch him for my Dex, but I started using him a lot and evolves him into his final form after a while. I ended up with him being my strongest in-game Pokemon, defeating a majority of the Elite Four's Pokemon and using him and some of my team to take down Cynthia. I love Luxray, he'll always in my opinion, be my favorite electric type Pokemom becuase of him, his stats and his design.

3 Pikachu Pikachu (Japanese: ピカチュウ) 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. A mascot of the Pokemon franchise, it's considered to be the most iconic character of all Pokemon species, as well as a major character in Japanese pop culture, due to its companionship with Ash Ketchum in the anime series. Pikachu has been featured in movies such as Pokemon Detective Pikachu as well as music videos - most notably Katy Perry's "Electric" in 2021.

The best electric type Pokemon I like. Raichu should be disappeared forever from the game and the anime for sure. People who like Raichu and people who think Pikachu is disgusting or whatever, you are going to hell for sure. Now take Raichu down from the list! Pikachu can be like ash's Pikachu if we train it with Super training just giving a lot of work on Defense and Special Defense. Or use the other electric type Pokemon to support Pikachu for speed and evasion by using Jolteon. I only use Jolteon for passing the speed stat to Pikachu who is my main Pokemon team. Let's vote for Pikachu and put dislike on the comments who wrote that Raichu is the best and finish them off for sure.

Most people who want an electric type go for Pikachu. The only region it's not in is Unova. Pikachu is more powerful with a Light Ball or, a Eviolite. It's a Pokemon that can beat it's evolution, or what it's weak to just because it can learn moves that are strong against it. It can learn both Surf and Fly if your lucky, it can also learn Volt Tackle when it is hatched after you put in a Pikachu with a Light Ball. Also like Popplio, it needs some love. When people get a Pikachu, or even Eevee, they only get it for it's evolution. It may look weak, but with the right care it is a power house.

First off, I just want to say that popularity isn't all that the "best" needs to cover. Sure, Pikachu is definitely one of the most popular, if not the most, but just look at the stats of the thing. Speed is basically the only thing it's acceptably strong in, and it's still not too good even with a Light Ball equipped. You can easily defeat it with a Ground-type move, or even an ineffective move. Ash's Pikachu may seem considerably strong in the anime, but that doesn't mean that the same applies to the video game.

But I'm voting anyway, just for the lols.

What I like about this site is that you have to vote (up) so you can comment.

Ah, the rat...

Out of game, it's the marketing man's dream (strike that, the marketing PERSON's dream) (mind you, it took a long time for Nintendo to give you the option of playing a girl in a Pokemon game). AAH, HE'S SO CWUTE!

In game, UNLESS you're playing Red / Blue and you KNOW (Guide Dang It) that you can catch one early in Viridian (4% chance IIRC) there is NO point in having the rat on your team. Sure, against a water type pokemon (say, Magikarp) you're going to get a 1HKO. Because if you don't you are stuffed. It learns Thunderbolt at 26, and? No good when your defences are rubbish.

And in Yellow, it CANNOT actually evolve into Raichu. Which would have meant an improvement (albeit slight) in its defences. But, hey, you didn't want it to evolve anyway, because it would have lost its CWUTENESS! Right? Right.

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

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.

Best one by far. He is the first legendary pokemon for a reason, because he is the best. There is no way Jolteon is better at electric attacks than Zapdos or Zekrom, the strongest attack from Jolteon would barely make Zapdos notice Jolteon's existence.

It is a legendary. Why is it at number 5? Pikachu is the face of the anime, so why would you think it has good stats? Think of the battles! People would wet their pants and run when you send Zapdos out! It is the second (dos means two) legendary bird!

Zapdos is definitely number 1. No.5 does not apply to me. Jolteon is overrated anyways.
Zapdos is powerful, legendary, and he's also a bird and I love birds. Also his stats and moveset are beautiful and he could easily own any Pokemon above him on this list.

5 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

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.

I guess Magnezone is good but it looks stupid. I prefer rolling with my Magneton. That said, this family is really a good one: Lock On + Thunder + Zap Cannon + Flash Cannon is the best moveset. Flash Cannon for overcoming an electric type's disadvantage towards Rock types; Zap Cannon for paralysis, Thunder for damage, and Lock On to make sure the moves don't miss...

Magnezone has the highest base attack power of any electric type and can use Magnet Rise to avoid it's 4x weakness to ground- Although not the fastest pokemon, this is the tankiest, beefiest powerhouse I have ever seen. It literally sweeps teams with Thunderbolt, and if you can set up a rain dance and then switch into a 100% accuracy Thunder, the match is pretty much already over.

6 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.

Electivire is amazing in competitive battle, especially against other electric types. One of the few Pokemon that can learn Earthquake, and all three elemental punch moves, not to mention Rock Slide and Brick Break/Cross Chop/Focus Punch, with its incredibly high attack and speed stats, along with Motor Drive, can sweep most Pokemon in single battles, and even better in double battles. Paired with Eelektross or Rotom, this badass can Earthquake the enemy w/o having to worry about your support. Electivire's overall design is awesome, and deserves a higher rank than Luxray, (not trying to be a hater, just so you know) who has mush lower stats and a useless attack stat, but I guess I can see how Jolteon could outclass just about any electric type out there.

Electivire just looks really, really, really cool. It can learn a bunch of good moves, and can learn "Ice Punch", which pretty much obliterate's its ground type weakness. It's ability "Motor Drive" makes it really fast as well, allowing for it to hit hard and fast. It can also learn earthquake and fire punch, but I am clueless on why it would need those moves.

Electivire is overpowered for example look at his size, biggest electric type non legendary.
Can easily plummet a luxray and drop a jolteon on its head! Its power is unbelievable can charge up to over 10 000 bolts of electricity and punch with massive force that it can even stand up to infernape in combat.l and I don't think jolteon or luxray can do that. Even though luxray and jolteon are faster than electivire, electivires speed is incredible can keep up with many fast pokemon like infernape and pikachu and I suggest putting electivire at number 1 is more suitable because electivire can punch,discharge electricity on the ground and can best out any electric pokemon with its massive size

7 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.

I'm playing Gold / Silver for the first time...bag Mareep...stick it in my box...

THEN of course when I play it the 2nd time I realise that this is a monster...not the speediest, but it doesn't have to be...Thunderpunch / Thunderwave and 2 moves of your choice. Get it up to level 82 (a lot of water in the game), owns the Elite 4 (bar 1 gym of course). Too easy, yeah?

Play Crystal. Unless you have trading facilities, you can't catch a Mareep in the wild, so you HAVE to change your entire playing strategy. Brilliant. Nintendo made Gold / Silver in 2 Megabytes of code. Astonishing programming.

Mega Ampharos is Dragon/Electric. How cool is that? I had it learn Thunderbolt, Discharge etc. In HeartGold and it was up there with some of the best Pokemon I've ever used. It's Mega Evolution looks like a God of some sort as well. Also, Pikachu is the most overrated Pokemon of all time because it is the face of the franchise, so that should drop and Jolteon is quick, but has nothing except speed. Ampharos and Electivire are both amazing.

Ampharos has that face which is reminiscent of a derp face or a meme, but looks aside, Ampharos is definitely the best. You can get a Mareep early in gen 2 and 5. Ampharos' etymology is cool: "Ampere", an electric unit, "pharos", Greek for lighthouse, and "pharaoh", who Ampharos is based off of. Ampharos has an AWESOME movepool (Fire Punch? Dragon Pulse? Zap Cannon? Sign me up! ) and great Sp. Attack. When you look at his mega, Sp. Atk turns into 165 and Sp. definitely is 110. Speaking of looks, actually, Ampharos may be the cutest Pokemon out there. Look at that vaguely derpy face. Don't you want to hug that gentle giant? You do. Admit it. My job here is done.

I never really was into electric pokemon, until they revealed ampharos's dragon roots. His special attack is immense and when you mega evolve ampharos its practically a fortress in terms of defense AND special defense. Just give him dragon pulse, thunder and a mega stone and you wont need any other pokemon for the rest of the game. Since I discovered this pokemons true potential, ampharos grew to my all time favorite pokemon.

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

Wow, I am extremely tired of what Pikachu's fanbase is doing. Believe me, I am COMPLETELY fine if you prefer Pikachu. The problem is when people say, "Pikachu is the best and if you prefer any Pokémon over it you deserve to ROT IN HELL." I do not want anymore comments like this, it's becoming a problem, and it's JUST STUPID! Anyway, I respect your opinion, but this is going too far.* Raichu, has better stats than Pikachu, Pikachu evolves into it, so it's OBVIOUSLY stronger, Raichu has an amazing Alolan Form with a unique type, (Electric/Psychic, take that Pikachu) and it has a killer moveset to top it off. Pikachu, on the other hand, has a good speed.

*That was off-topic, everything after has to do with the vote.

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.

Raichu is like the best EVER. How can Pikachu even compare? You know Raichu is great when you see its incredibly chubby face and its awesome stats [despite its chubbiness] Raichu deserves to be FIRST.

Light Ball Pikachu is better... My love for the anime makes it so I can't evolve my Pikachu, which is why I'd just rather use another electric line altogether like Magneton or Luxray if I can't find Pikachu with Light Ball.

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

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.
Last thing:I used Zekrom to single-handedly ...more

If we're talking about the best Electric Pokemon, the answer is obviously Zekrom. Jolteon is sort of overrated. The only thing that Jolteon has that is better than Zekrom is Speed, which is 40 points higher. That's nothing compared to Zekrom's extra 85 attack, 60 defense, 10 special attack, 5 special defense, and dragon type attacks that completely blow Jolteon out of the water.

Zapdos is my favorite electric Pokemon but Zekrom is undeniably the best electric Pokemon out there. His fitting base stats for legendary of 680 and terrifying offensive prowess lets him stomp a large number Pokemon in the uber tier with ease which no other electric Pokemon I can think of is capable of.

Let's face it guys, a trickier question would be: who is the best electric Pokemon BESIDES Zekrom.

This pitch black electric dragon is an exellent physical sweeper, not to mention its legendary. Can squish pikachu easily, but Pikachu is the main character of the anime so that's why that yellow rat always wins in the anime. This dragon was used by a king's son! If the NDS was like the anime, he would just stamp jolteon (no offense I like it too) and other small electric Pokemon dead.

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

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

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.

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.

Why is Raikou, one of the dog trio and my favorite electric legendary doing at 11? Especially behind Pokemon like ampharos, pikachu, zapdos, zekrom, arceus, and others (with all due respect I love all those guys too they're just too wffing awesome)

The Contenders
11 Eelektross

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, flamethrower, 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 eelektross 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 ...more

From what I've seen from the list above this list is more of popularity than of actual usability. Pikachu and his evolution are terrible, why are they so high up? And everyone keeps making the argument that "they can beat any other electric type with their ability". That means nothing, as some of the Pokemon listed above are useless against anything else. Eelektross has no weakness, great bulk and attack, and probably the best move pool of any electric type. And Jolteon isn't the best. Sure it's fast and has high SpA, but it can easily be OHKO'd by any competitve physical attacker. Not saying it's bad, but some of the ones listed below it are obviously better. Other than legendarys, I have to through my vote with Eelektross. On equal level terms it's all but impossible to OHKO, and with its move pool plus an expert belt or life orb, Eelektross can OHKO almost any competitive type (grass, rock, ground, water, flying, or fire, to name a few). So yep. Eelektross is the best non legendary ...more

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.

OK this is stupid. If you do any real calculations you would understand that eelektross is the best electric type. To prove

Levitate, cancels out any ground attacks that means it has no weakness.

Great special att and att. Good defense and special defends. Bad speed.

This is where eelektross shines. He has coil which raises at, definitely, acc and can use drain punch and brick break to defeat electivire. Flamethrower to defeat magnezone. Thunderbolt to defeat any one else.

12 Manectric

How is Manectric number 11?

I will admit that without its Mega Evolution, it shouldn't be in the top 10. However, its Lightning Rod ability before you Mega Evolve can give you a Special Attack boost that basically turns you into an ass-kicking machine! Not only that, it has amazing coverage with Thunderbolt, Flamethrower, Hidden Power Ice, and Volt Switch. This makes it a solid special sweeper that can handle any team that lacks a specially defensive wall. It's my favorite Pokémon and an absolute beast. Plus, shiny Manectric looks evil, man.

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.

MANECTRIC! It is manectric for goodness sake. What is Pikachu doing up there. It learns FLAMETHROWER! The show did this. Fine, I don't mind Jolteon but manectric is way more cooler. I mean, some people gave their brain away. Stupid show

13 Galvantula

First, let's talk about its typing. Bug/Electric, how often have you seen that? Secondly, it's special attack and speed are off the charts! I personal choose him over other electric types like Electivire because he cannot be one shot by earthquake. He has an outstanding move pool, and is just an overall badass!

Galvantula are the best! Wow looked the speed. The type is also really good bug and electric. The move is really strong, it has bug buzz, electroweb, and also sucker punch. It's ability is really good compound eyes which made the pokemon accuracy boosted. I never failed used move.

Galvantula is unique when it comes to typing, which is Electric and bug. He is fast, and has a pretty good special attack. Not the best physical attacker, but makes up for it in special attack.

I hate spiders, but Galvantula's certainly an exception. I always send mine out straight away, she uses Sticky Web, and then has the option of Thunder, with accuracy boosted! So underrated!

14 Zebstrika

Aw yeah. This Pokemon is amazing. Just take a look at him/her! He looks like he should be saying "Go ahead, or else I'll gallop towards you, ram you and violently shock your ass!"

I used to laugh at this, thinking it was a unique idea but that it had horrible stats. Elesa proved me wrong. It has great attack and speed, and an OP moveset to go along with it.

Does anyone remember Zebstrika in gen 5? One of the fastest if not the fastest Pokemon in the game.

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

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

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 should be higher on this list. First off, with its Wash form, it can be a beast with only one weakness. And, there are a ton of other forms. Let's not forget that it can learn many moves outside type. If not Rotom, at least out Rotom Wash on this list, and get it into top ten.

Rotom! Why are you so low? Are people just ignorant and have no clue what a good Pokemon is? Oh well, maybe the Ghost-Type list.

Why is Rotom so low? This thing looks cool, and it is great all around with barely any weakness since it can change forms.

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

The spikes on its tail discharge immense bolts of lightning. It flies around the Unova region firing off lightning bolts.

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

I think landerous is the best electric legendary in the world of Pokemon but it is a bit weack against its 2 brothers because I saw a video and easily landerous was defeated but who can I say? He looks so awesome!

He is a Zaptos raised on the streets of Harlem and not with 2 punkass sisters (articune and moltras) making him Op and baddest G in the electric game! I mean just look at him! Not to mention his other form when he has to take out his hands to show them all that he ain't to be messed with! Definitely underrated

17 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 comeback in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, it is considered one of the best characters in the game.

Pikachu's my favorite, but I'm voting Pichu. Whats not to love about pichu? He's like a cuter, girlyer version of Pikachu. Which makes me smile, because I've always grown up liking girly/cutesy things as a whole. -Jirachu, who's also made several annon comments on other pokemon too.

He's not exactly powerful, but, come one, he's so darn adorable! How can you not like this cute little guy?

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

This dude is just so adorable. He might not have the best moves or stats but just look at his face.

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

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.

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

You kidding? I don't know why jolteo is on the top of the list? I use emolga in B2 and it wad awesome! Speedy and has a great attack and special attack. Emolga deserve to be on the top 10. Not even ground types can stop this mon.

This is Tauros Crap! Emolga should at least be third, all of them that I've had are completely op.

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

Ok first off I hope I spelled that right... But anywaayy Pachirisu is like a much cuter version of Pikachu! Pikachu is adorable too though! It's a little blue squirrel with a fluffy tail and little cheeks just like Pikacgu, except yellow! Blue and yellow are so pretty together in my opinion! I think this Pokemon should be in the top ten for cuteness and just being an electric type... Please vote!

If the 2014 world championship showed us anything it is that, pachirisu don't care. Takes draco meteor to the face and still lives.

My personal setup for this little squirrel is (DOU)

Volt absorb
attract/nuzzle/super fang/follow me

With a lanturn with leftovers, aqua ring, discharge, heal bell, and ice beam it is a very formidable and unexpected challenge.

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

Why is she 21st? She's the lowest best Pokemon every to win a World Championship and deserves at LEAST the top 5.

20 Heliolisk Heliolisk is a dual-type Electric/Normal Pokémon introduced in the Pokémon franchise's sixth generation. It evolves from Helioptile and is known for its ability to generate solar energy. Heliolisk's frilled neck can absorb sunlight, which it converts into powerful Electric-type attacks. Its unique typing and sun-related abilities add a dynamic aspect to battles.

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!

Heliolisk and Ampharos are both my go-to Electric-types, and, in Ultra Sun, I managed to get a shiny Ampharos and Heliolisk on my team! Helio (Heliolisk) and Amphy (Ampharos) both wreaked everything that came its way.

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

Well heliolisk is just a super fast lizard that can learn rock climb and surf just what I needed!

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

Plusle and minun are THE CUTEST! I think that they are math Pokémon too plusle is addition and Minun is subtraction!

I think he's just as cute as a cutie!

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

Adorable and funny

22 Electabuzz

The original King of thunder types badass design when I first saw him I had to have one. I thought he couldn't get any epicer then I saw his first form. He looks legendary. Then he's third in sinnoh don't get me started. Elekid is at 10 Electabuzz is at 5 and Electivre is at 1

Kills Pokemon with thunderpunch and it can also learn physic? Beast combination easily number 1 electric Pokemon ever made.

Electabuzz is the reason thunderpunch exists. It's one of the originals, not only is it iconic it's epic. Enough said.

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

23 Tapu Koko

Excuse me but Tapu Koko is way more powerful than Pikachu they should switch places!

It should be top. I beat all the electric ones on this list with it so it should be top

Guardian of Melemele Island. Funny and mysterious. Oh he's super fast too.

The most op typing. It is epic.

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

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.

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 used one on ORAS and it kicked major butt,she's cute with a little bite,happy but dangerous she everything you could want and she is amazing at doing it.

The cutest Pokemon ever!

25 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.

Shinx is a very cute Pokemon. I just love him

You are so cute, Shinx! Please vote for him!

It really makes me calm
