I knew I was forgetting to add something! note to self: don't write club intro posts half-asleep
Essentially, Shinx was what triggered my curiosity to use Electric-types, which was then followed by my subsequent adoration for them. I guess you can say I was late into the party regarding Ampharos in that I only used one for the first time in HeartGold. I also didn't really have any preference to use Electrics for a long time - that is, until I played Pearl on a whim and saw a Shinx in Route 202. It was instant love from there - I just found it too cute to not use! It also ended up being a great asset to my team... despite me kind of not realizing for half the game that I should have been teaching it Physical moves instead of Special, haha.
Since then, when I started replaying older games, I always found myself wanting to try out other Electrics. From Magneton to Galvantula, I've found the handful I've tried to be a pleasure to use.
It's also because of a strange aesthetic desire I have to use different Pokemon families in different clubs for whatever reason, and I've already picked Mareep elsewhere :P
