Triple-types hurt my brain.

Though that's viable for the new Kyurem forms, I guess - Black Kyurem, in particular, could have an Dragon/Ice/Electric typing. That actually sounds like a fierce combination of offensive types... and is really just asking for an Earthquake to the face, haha.

Also, Electric/Fighting just made me think of a fighting kangaroo with electric gloves. So Electric/Fighting/Water is a fighting kangaroo with electric gloves... and snorkel gear. I don't even know.

This. See this? This is what I want. We here at the Electric Pokemon Fan Club should design Pokemon. We clearly are creative prodigies.

But on the other hand maybe triple typing isn't such a great idea, as far as game mechanics go...

What would an Electric / Fighting / Water type even be?

You could have an Electric / Flying / Water type, like a thunderstorm maybe, or the Electric / Grass / Water type like you said. There are just so many combinations...

I looked up Electric / Psychic types, and all I could find was a lightbulb Pokemon and a recolour of Pikachu. I was confused.
An Electric/Fighting/Water type, uhh... I suppose it could be... -draws a blank- Okay yeah good point, I have no idea, but that's not for us to have to decide anyway xD How about a Poliwrath with thunder gloves? c; I love the thunderstorm Pokémon idea though omg, but wouldn't that be way too similar to the Kami trio? D: And yeah, a light bulb family parallel to Litwick is what I'd expect from an Electric/Psychic family tbch. Which is disappointing, but what else could it really be? D:

Ahahahaha. That made me laugh. xD Now this I would love to see. xD Is having the capability for using Electric punches enough to be called Electric type though? I won't even go into the snorkel thing. xD I think that would be the basis for any future Electric/Fighting types though. Tbh I'm really surprised Electivire wasn't one. D:

I think we'd have a huge surplus of Electric Pokémon if this was the case. xD Not that I'm complaining. ♥

On topic: I love electric-types for one because they have some of the coolest-looking attacks of all Pokemon. They're also a common sight in rain teams abusing their 100% accurate Thunder. Most of them are very fast, too, making them tough to outspeed in battle. As far as appearance, some are cute, some aren't, some just look plain awesome.

Hi there, welcome to the club! :D I must ask, what made you choose the Therian Forme Thundurus? c: It's incredibly cool and seems like it'll be very powerful, but I didn't know it had that much press yet. x] (Thanks for the icon btw!) I have to agree with you about Thunder abuse in rain teams; it's incredible how many times that comes up in OU battles now from Pokémon like Zapdos/Drifblim - and especially from Pokémon like Thundurus or Dragonite that get both Thunder and Hurricane. :3 And yes, most Electric types do look plain awesome. ♥

So replying to that gave me a thought; why is the move Thunder called 'Thunder', considering Thunder is just noise? Shouldn't the move be called 'Lightning'? Noise can't hurt you (other than things like Sonic Boom), but lightning is where the actual electricity is held... Right? o3o

Discussion:

In my recent school year I had taken classes on basic and digital electronics and got the 3rd highest grade of all the final tests. If Pokemon were real I'd have to say I'd definatly be an electric type (or water, but that's another story) user, maybe even gym leader, elite four or champion.

I would have a team with some cool pokemon like:
Eelektross
Magnezone
Rotom (wash probably)
Galvantula
Electivire

That's only 5 so I'm not sure what my last one would be because there's so many good ones to choose from Zekrom would be my choice in a heartbeat because it's so amazing looking if it weren't banned for being legendary. Curse you Nintendo!!!

Oh Sorry, For a dual typing I'd have to say Grass or fighting.

What made me love electric types?

I supose it's my personality. Efficiency and Practicality mean a lot to me. Electricity is what seems to make the world go round today. This very conversation runs on it! It's also verry expensive, which is why I like to have my own ways of generating it. Solar pannels, wind turbines and electric dams are the way to go! Nature does all the work while I can sit back and relax and the money I save I can use for th next pokemon game =P

Why did I choose Electivire as my partner? It just seemed to be the strongest! I could've picked a raichu, but that wouldn't be as efficient or practical in battle.

What you said sums it up pretty well, I think. It's a slightly different reason for me, but still.

See, I was never the most tactical of players, especially when I was younger. I always liked moves that were fast and hit hard, even if it meant sacrificing defense. I think it's pretty obvious why I liked electric types, just from that. Because I wanted to use them in the place of actual skill.

I also thought the Mareep line was adorable, as I've previously said.

I can relate to that aswell. My first game was Emerald and in post game training I fit my pokemon with attacking moves but never put any effort into defencive moves like I do now. That's one thing that I always thought would be cool for pikachu was to have some sort of defencive move. Light screen would be a unique twist in some of his battles.

Sorry, I've been having computer problems. But, anyway, back to what you asked about the Therian Forms, AlexOzzyCake. Ever since the forms were first revealed, I found them to be very interesting. Dragdurus (a fan-made name that surfaced on Facebook), has become one of my favorite Electric-types since then. Not only is his design awesome, but he is very powerful in battle (I've used him on PO).

I think I still play like that. That's probably also why I still consider Electric Types my favorite. It was especially an easy thing to get away with in Pokemon Silver, which was my first Pokemon game. Again with the Mareeps. You just have to love the Mareep line. YOU HAVE TO

Like that.

I think Pikachu can learn Light Screen, can't it? Or are you saying you'd like to use a Pikachu with Light Screen?

What first made me like electric Pokemon was probably seeing Pachirisu for the first time on TV. Pachirisu is SUPER CUTE! I also do really love Emolga but something makes me like Pachirisu better. I even have my own Pachirisu plushie its so cute and looks like this:


OMG Pachirisu is awesome it is one of the cutest Pokemon and it also never evolves which is something I like in some Pokemon. I hate how you have a really cute pokemon and it evolves into something else. It is good to have a Pokemon that stays the same and that you really grow on!

Oo, what made you choose these two types? We've already had a pretty long debate over Electric/Grass types so now's the perfect time to pitch in ideas for it xD And as for Electric/Fighting, I really think that should've been the Electabuzz line. I mean come on, most of their moves rely on punching. xD

Paha, I love this reasoning. xD That should be our new motto; "Electric types: now you don't need skill." Although I have to say I don't think that concept would work considering that most Electric types work around using some incredibly unique strategies, Eelektross being the first that comes to mind. :3 But their huge speeds and power are certainly what kept me interested for so many years until the cuties started pouring in for Gen IV ♥

I'm pretty sure Pikachu can learn Light Screen, but you're right it'd be a great help for the Pikachu family to have some more defensive moves. I don't know if it can learn Reflect or not, but if it can then that'd be a perfect move for them to use considering its low base Defense and weakness to Ground types. :3 I really do wish Pikachu/Raichu had some better stats though - with their stats that low they kinda don't warrant usage in most serious teams :( Especially strange considering they're the mascots. o3o

Hi there, welcome to the club! :D I hope you have a wonderful time here ♥ Your list of favourites is largely very adorable; what made you choose Pikachu as number one though? Is there a reason that you love that Pokémon more than the others? c: For now I'm going to assume it's a result of growing up playing Pokémon Yellow xD The last three on your list are super powerful Pokémon though so now I'm interested to see if you prefer cuteness over power when it comes to Electric types? :)

PACHIRISU IS ADORABLE OMG FJGSDFG <33333333 -fangirls- *ahem* But yeah, I really, really, really strongly agree with your love of cuteness in Electric types. xD And that plushie is so freaking cute omg, I am incredibly jealous right now. :( What I love about Pachirisu is how its stats are, let's be honest, pretty terrible, but you can still use the Pokémon very effectively. With moves like Sweet Kiss, Super Fang, Thunder Wave and Grass Knot, it can eventually (with a little luck) take down the majority of opponents. Even things like Garchomp could fall to the cute squirrel Pokémon with some luck from Sweet Kiss and lowering its Earthquake's power with Attract; that's how I beat Cynthia's. x]

Well, I have a beautiful story of my childhood for you xd!
So it was 1999. ( Woah, I feel old XD)
And my brother was on a vacation with his friends or something, and forgot his GBA, so I thought, why don't I try it out? So I started playing.. he had seven badges if I remember, and I pressed new game.. I'm so evil.. :p
And then BAM! Professor Oak gave me a Pikachu.. I was in love immediately!
Next thing I knew, I had 12 Pikachu Plushes, a lot of Pokémon cards.. Pikachu cards. ;d
And.. these :

I know, terrible. xD
I've played Yellow like a thousand times :p
And yeah, I used to prefer cuteness over Strength, but that was when I was little, these Pokémon always were my favorite Elec. type so.. yeah. :p

I still sleep with my plushe.

Why isn't that our motto. Everyone would join then.

Really, I think that in-game Electric Types can wipe the floor with a lot of different things. Or that's how it was for me. I would rely quite a bit on my Electric Pokemon to get me out of bad situations. It was never delightful to go up against any well-armoured Pokemon, though.

Well if we're talking about Electric Plushies... Here is a picture of my three older, and infinitely less cute looking (especially with the camera and the lighting. bleh.) plushies. I was too lazy to look up those pretty catalog pictures. xD

I am so jealous of you guys and all your adorable plushies >:
All I have is a really old Pikachu one, which is probably hidden away in a box somewhere. I thought I had a picture of it on my computer, but I guess not.

---

Anyway, regarding the topic: I only started liking Electric-types when I tried out a whole bunch of them after using Shinx in Pearl.

I guess I'm a bit strange in that I liked Electrics... for not being Electrics. I only really gained an appreciation for Electric-types relatively recently, and it was mostly due to their versatility as a type. I initially thought that all of them were fragile, special-attacking speedsters which would faint at the slightest quake of the earth. While a lot of them are like that, and I do love using fast-moving heavy-hitters, a good number of them can also fit into, and excel in, roles you wouldn't really expect from an Electric-type.

I guess it's a bit silly, since most, if not all, other types are like that, but when I was younger I was pretty strongly convinced that non-legendary Electric-types were not worth using and their roles could easily be played by other Pokemon that could learn Electric moves.

Well, still.. if you had triple types, I would do Flying, ( It kills their groundweakness.) and perhaps rock, to cover the weakness for flying type? So.. a mix of Zapdos and Archeops?
Or Thundurus and Archeops? I don't know. :p

That Jolteon... is... AWESOMEEEEEE!

I want it.. NOW!
Those Plusle and Minun are also, ADORABLE!

Paha, that is a great story indeed xD I was a lot like that when I first saw Pachirisu, but not to the same extent x] The way Pikachu followed you around was just adorable ♥ And I used to sleep with a Pikachu plushie too ;; This was years ago though, just saying xD

THOSE ARE ADORABLE OMG. Despite both Minun and Plusle looking like they've died and collapsed or something, they're still sooo cute xD My favourite is the Jolteon though; it just looks so beautiful and mystical, even though it's just a plushie. x]

I initially thought that all of them were fragile, special-attacking speedsters which would faint at the slightest quake of the earth. While a lot of them are like that, and I do love using fast-moving heavy-hitters, a good number of them can also fit into, and excel in, roles you wouldn't really expect from an Electric-type.

I guess it's a bit silly, since most, if not all, other types are like that, but when I was younger I was pretty strongly convinced that non-legendary Electric-types were not worth using and their roles could easily be played by other Pokemon that could learn Electric moves.
I must admit, I didn't start liking them much until Pearl either x] But for me it was Pachirisu and Rotom that convinced me to start trying them out. It wasn't so much because I assumed they were fragile or anything, but rather the opposite since I thought they were all too strong and made the games boring xD I kinda like that some of them have low defenses because it means they aren't too strong to make things boring c: But I certainly agree about being able to use Electric types in situations you wouldn't expect; those Pokémon are so much fun to use xD Like Eelektross for example (which seems to be my example for everything recently >.>) is the perfect user of Poison type moves such as Acid Spray, supporting its other moves perfectly and making it one hell of a Pokémon to beat. ♥ You wouldn't expect this kind of set up from Electric types x] I also love how the majority of Electric types tend to get a lot of coverage due to their 'powers' giving them moves like Flamethrower or whatever, it just makes them that little bit more wonderful. :D

Tbh I kinda stopped using topics since it's nicer to just see where the discussion flows rather than using topics to dictate what people talk about, but I guess the closest thing to a topic at the moment is "What made you start liking Electric types?" c:

Well, still.. if you had triple types, I would do Flying, ( It kills their groundweakness.) and perhaps rock, to cover the weakness for flying type? So.. a mix of Zapdos and Archeops?
Or Thundurus and Archeops? I don't know. :p
That would give it a nasty Ice weakness though. That's all I could really think of that suggestion. It would also be weak to Water, and depending on whether it inherited it's speed from the Rock or Electric, that could be a problem.

But I kind of see what you're going for. I'm sort of theorizing what it could look like in my head.

THOSE ARE ADORABLE OMG. Despite both Minun and Plusle looking like they've died and collapsed or something, they're still sooo cute xD My favourite is the Jolteon though; it just looks so beautiful and mystical, even though it's just a plushie. x][/SIZE][/FONT]
Well they are pretty old, but they were never meant to stand up either. They were made with kind of flimsy arms, with a bit of stuffing on the inside, where the main body has pellets. That said, the arms are so short, they probably couldn't stand up like normal anyways. xD

More than you wanted to know, probably. But that is why they look dead, despite their rather vibrant expressions. Jolteon is rather lovely though. I think they had a couple of other eons at the store I visited, but I only had money for one, and I thought Jolteon was definitely the best of them.

Plus it was an electric type, which makes it amazing.
