35 Best Electric Type Pokemon of All Time (Updated In 2024)

There are more than a thousand Pokemon in the Pokemon universe, so it’s hard to pick a favorite.

Pikachu is the most popular Electric Type Pokemon of all time, though.

But today we’re going to look at more electric Pokemon that you need on your team.

These electric Pokemon have some of the best moves, but they are weak to other types.

Now, let’s start the list of the best electric-type Pokemon of all time without wasting any more time.

Best 10 Electric Type Pokemon, Ranked - Prima Games

Updated in June, 2024, by Swati: In Pokemon Scarlet & Violet, players were treated to some amazing new electric kinds,

a brand-new Pikachu clone, futuristic-looking paradox forms, and even legendary Pokemon.

Popular in the series are the electric ones.

It so happens that the franchise mascot, Pikachu, is an electric kind.

This updated list has further information on each of the best electric-type Pokemon,

together with recommended moves that players should use while using them in a game.

40. Miraidon

Miraidon - Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Guide - IGN

Among the best electric-type Pokemon to ever grace the game is one of the two unique rideable legendary Pokemon that were revealed to players in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet.

Players using its signature assault, Miraidon, have scorched through higher-level Tera Raids.

Accessible to dual-type Electric/Dragon Pokemon, Electro Drift is a powerful move that,

when used well against an opponent, produces 30% extra strength with 100% accuracy and 100 basic strikes.

When you add this to its great Special Attack (135) and high speed (135), it becomes evident why Miraidon is so useful.

39. Raging Bolt

Exclusive to Pokemon Scarlet players exploring the Hidden Treasures of Area Zero DLC,

Raging Bolt is a previous Paradox form of Raikou.

Trainers may need to put this aside even if its design is questionable if they want to use a powerful Electric/Dragon’mon in Paldea.

The strongest statistic about it is its 137th special assault.

Any opponents in their way will be helped to demolish by moves like thunder, dragon pulse, and zap cannon.

Getting hold of Raging Bolt is a bit difficult.

Players need the Indigo Disc DLC and 200 Pokemon entered into the Blueberry Academy Pokedex in order to add the Paradox Pokemon to their roster.

38. Pawmot

The new 490 basic stat electric/fighting-type pawmot was debuted in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet.

Its 115 assault enables it to strike quickly and with some physical force.

Anyone looking for a distinctive partner with interesting typography may find great use for its peculiar typing and abundance of motions.

It may be the “Pikachu Clone” of the 9th Generation, but most gamers believe it to be far more useful than the well-known mouse.

37. Toxtricity

13 Facts About Toxtricity - Facts.net

Toxtricity is unique among Pokemon of the Electric/Poison type, along with its pre-evolved form, Toxel.

The Punk Pokemon comes in low-key and amped versions, depending on its nature.

The statistics are the same for both versions.

Beyond appearances, at level 52, the Low Key variant learns Magnetic Flux, while at the same level, the Amped learns Shift Gear.

It can use Boomburst and Overdrive to attack opponents from a distance with its 114 Sp. Atk., which its Punk Rock ability increases by 30%.

Players need to be careful while up against ground types, though, as they are 4x more vulnerable than pure electric monsters.

36. Hisuian Electrode
