Is it more important to you to use Electric-type moves to paralyze your opponent or deal damage to them?

Welcome to the club. Ampharos is awesome. I was disappointed when I found out I couldn't get one in the Crystal version because Mareep is not obtainable in that game. I think I might've had one in Silver though. I loved Zap Cannon, half a chance of it hitting but it paralyzes when it hits along with taking damage.

It depends really. Paralyzing is wonderful and it can change the turn out of a match, by crippling the opponent's speed and their chance to move. But then if you know you can take out, say Gyarados with a single Thunderbolt, then paralyzing it is unnecessary and wastes PP. I agree that an electric Pokemon should carry both- if you didn't have any attacks, all your matches would be long and drawn out, with very slim chances of winning unless you carried Toxic or any other sorts of moves like that. I'd say in-game wise, damage is the key to go and competitively, where status and hazards are important- the paralysis is useful in stopping a sweeper wrecking your team. I personally find them both essential though. :p

I actually don't end up using status problems very much in a competitive environment, even though that is discouraged. I like simple brutal sweeps, so I'd rather spend the time setting up and then destroying my opponent than using a turn to paralyze them, especially since many people have remedies to it these days like Heal Bell teams and whatnot. Especially when I'm using a Rain team, because there is nothing like neverending Thunder!

Although I do use Yawn to force switchouts into hazards sometimes, but that's not your question...haha.

Answer the current topic: I'd have to go with paralyze, because in competitive battles this particular status can be quite useful, plus Electric-type moves most often don't have enough power an mainly focus on a deeper strategy. However, power in these moves are efficient in eliminating bulky water types, so there is a bit of contradiction.
Favorite Electric-type move: I'd like to make a correction to TrainerMusaddiq's notion, because Bolt Strike is the most powerful Electric Type move, at 130 Power, which just so happens to be mah fave. Just sayin'
Why do you like/love Electric-type Pokémon?: Uhhh, hello? Electricity is one of the main factors of conjuring a high-level storm, which I consider as kind of my trademark.

Basically, paralysis can sometimes help turn a battle around for me. It saves my life in a few battles and having that plus a damaging Electric attack is pretty essential for my moveset. It's handy for dealing with the common Water and Flying-types, not to mention how common Gyarados are found. I still do think carrying something like Thunder Wave can be handy for slowing down speedy Pokemon that would otherwise land a hit before you do.

Welcome to the club. Lanturn's a good pick. I remember fishing for Chinchou in Olivine City (I think that's where you find them) because I liked the idea of a Water/Electric combination (I am a big Water-type fan) and evolving it into a Lanturn. I loved using Thunder Wave in Pokémon Stadium 2 to paralyze my foes. Not familiar with Bolt Strike, so I'd have to play the more recent games to see it but it sounds powerful.

Yes, Bolt Strike is a move original to Zekrom, only learned at level 100. So you could imagine its pretty powerful . I hate how its got 85 accuracy though . I like the idea of Water/Electric combinations as well, seeing that water from a hurricane and electricity for thunderbolts creates storms. This also incurs my love for the Incarnate trio (Thundurus, Tornadus, etc.) and a lil' bit of flying types as well. Just gots to be dat storm! :D

I believe the electric-type you're looking for here is Rotom! Rotom can change into many real-life objects, such as microwaves, fans and washing machines, all of which come with a unique typing. I think it changes formes similar to how Deoxys does- it can change its form at will by going to a room in the Galactic Building in Eterna City for Gen IV, Rotom's Room in Silph Co. and a store room in some place which I can't remember in Gen V.

oh gosh, I forgot about Rotom. It wasn't the one I was thinking of but thanks for bringing that to my attention.

Rotom isn't the one you wanted...? XD I guess uhh... Thundurus could be the answer? He has the original form and Therian form, so he's my best bet! (Seriously how can the answer not be Rotom)

Just a quick comment - you'll get a lot more replies if you use topics rather than questions as there's much more to post about and discuss rather than these one-line replies :)

I was thinking of Thundurus. He changes into his Therian Forme with help of the Reveal Glass. I couldn't think of a new topic to add to the original post.

I do rather like the Therian forme honestly! Which design do you guys prefer? The Therian form always reminded me a tad of Raikou but I do love the design - it's what Raikou always should have been. I think Thundurus on the whole is a marvellously designed Pokémon as his design really promotes the whole "I am one hell of a badass" feeling that the Pokémon deserves. I mean, just look at him in action:



Can you really say that's anything other than impressive? ;D

I always liked the Therian Forme better, it looks way more awesome in that design and also I don't use Dream Radar it's still a great menace in competitive play. I love that animation in its sprite as well, it like it's getting ready to fight!

Favorite Electric-type move:
Charge, it doesn't do any damage but when you use a damagin Electric-type move after charging and have STAB and do twice the damage you can say bye-bye to your opponent.
Why do you like/love Electric-type Pokémon: I've always been fascinated by what electricity can do, like typing this. It's so useful, without it life would be really boring. Lightning also looks really cool imo.

Favorite Electric-type move: Thunderbolt! It's a staple electric attack in the anime and is really strong to boot. 100% accuracy as well, wheeeee. :) But Electro Ball + Bolt Strike come in as a very close second!

Oooh, nice topic. I personally love paralysis since it gives me a huge edge in battle with the cut speed and chance for the opponent to not be able to attack, but in the end I prefer to damage my opponent. Electric moves tend to be pretty strong~

Welcome to the club. Zapdos is an awesome choice partner. I have always loved Zapdos and how majestic and powerful it is. Not too familiar with Charge but would love to see it in action. I agree, what would the world be without electricity? Gotta love it.

Welcome to the club. Emolga's cute and quite strong if used right. Thunderbolt was my primary Electric move, loved using it to take down my opponents. Pikachu probably got alot of us into Pokémon, and I don't blame you for wanting to be one. Paralysis works like a charm. I personally like a Thunder Wave/Rain Dance/Thunder combo or any combination of Electric attacks, makes for a devastating finish.

I like both of Thundurus' forms. Heck, the whole Kami trio is awesome. They remind me of the Egyptian Gods from Yu-Gi-Oh, powerful and unstoppable.

Actually, you guys have forgotten about Zekrom as well! The merging of Kyurem and Zekrom makes Black - Kyurem!

I don't think that really counts since Kyurem and Black Kyurem aren't Electric-types.

I think Kyurem still stays Dragon/Ice regardless.

Well yeah, but Zekrom was originally electric, meaning that it was the electric type pokemon that changed form! BOOM! Logic!

It never changed form, it fused with another Pokémon. Zekrom stays the same (sort of) but it's Kyurem that does the changing. The answer to my question was Thundurus, but had forgotten that Rotom can take multiple forms.
