Pokémon General Poll #29 - Favorite Electric Pokémon

http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/179.gif http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/479.gif http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/618.gifhttp://www.pokestadium.com/pokemon/sprites/handheld/blackwhite/animated/26.gif

Electric is a type that is always remembered, if only for the iconic Pikachu. There's always an Electric-type Gym Leader, from the memorable Lt. Surge up to the nearly brand-new Elesa (she's a Gym Leader -- she's also a model!). With technology surrounding us in our real world, Electric-types are more and more relatable. So which one is your favorite, and why?

Have an idea for the Pokémon General poll? PM Toujours (http://www.pokecommunity.com/private.php?do=newpm&u=258095) with it!

Ummmm let me think of this to figure out my absolute favourite.

(Several ellipses later . . . )


I have to pick Mareep because it's cute and I love it. Also its cry is so cute and even sounds like its name, and best of yet its shiny form!

Also on Smogon they call it "the Screening Sheep" which in my opinion is the cutest nickname ever.

And I'll mention a few more so that they know I haven't forgotten them.

Favorite electric type pokemon that I always like to have in my team is Manectric. It's awesome. Can create thunder clouds though a very small version of that of Zapdos. But this one has very cool attacks and it's speed is pretty impressive too.

Well I also like to have Magnezone ! It's very destructive.

I also like Thundurus. That's my ultimate favorite!!

November 12th, 2011, 9:41 PM
Some favorites of mine are Jolteon, Electivire, Galvantula, and Rotom. They're pretty cool.

November 12th, 2011, 10:23 PM
Electric-type Pokemon? Love them!

And here's the ones I like!

http://i1193.photobucket.com/albums/aa354/Hikari10Girl/Pokemon%20Sprites%20Collection/th_135jolteon.png Jolteon: Who likes Eeveelutions? Jolteon is cool-as!

http://i1193.photobucket.com/albums/aa354/Hikari10Girl/Pokemon%20Sprites%20Collection/th_181ampharos.png Ampharos: It comes from an evolutionary line with sheep and Ampharos has a tail that lights up.

http://i1193.photobucket.com/albums/aa354/Hikari10Girl/Pokemon%20Sprites%20Collection/th_310manectric.png Manectric: I love its cry and after seeing Wattson's one in a Gym Battle, I just thought to myself - I have got to have this, it's like an Electric canine that summons thunderclouds. I tried it out, and it really became a part of my main team.

http://i1193.photobucket.com/albums/aa354/Hikari10Girl/Pokemon%20Sprites%20Collection/th_405luxray.png Luxray: It's a lion with electric powers!

http://i1193.photobucket.com/albums/aa354/Hikari10Girl/Pokemon%20Sprites%20Collection/th_417pachirisu.png Pachirisu: It's cute and Dawn has one in the anime, made me like it even more.

http://i1193.photobucket.com/albums/aa354/Hikari10Girl/Pokemon%20Sprites%20Collection/th_479rotom.png Rotom: I got a Rotom in Black (first time I ever obtained a Rotom in any main series game) and played around with its forms, and it's fun to use too!

http://i1193.photobucket.com/albums/aa354/Hikari10Girl/Pokemon%20Sprites%20Collection/th_523zebstrika.png Zebstrika: I was thinking there would be a Zebra Pokemon and come Black & White, this thing shows up! I used one and she managed to sweep Elesa's team!

http://i1193.photobucket.com/albums/aa354/Hikari10Girl/Pokemon%20Sprites%20Collection/th_587emolga.png Emolga: Cuteness alert! I loved using this thing and it performed well for my team. I love Emolga despite Marriland (a Pokemon walkthrough guru) finding them annoying.

http://i1193.photobucket.com/albums/aa354/Hikari10Girl/Pokemon%20Sprites%20Collection/th_644zekrom.png Zekrom: Although I like Reshiram better, I still have a soft spot for Zekrom.

Favorite electric type pokemon that I always like to have in my team is Manectric. It's awesome. Can create thunder clouds though a very small version of that of Zapdos. But this one has very cool attacks and it's speed is pretty impressive too.

That's cool, I loved using Manectric and it became a major part of my Ruby team. I love its cry.

November 12th, 2011, 10:51 PM
My top favorite would definitely have to be Mareep. It's adorable, it's fluffy, it's a sheep, and it's shiny is just simply adorable. I also love its whole evolution line as a whole. Zebstrika, Luxray, and Jolteon would have to be my other favorites, if I were to pick one from almost every region (I don't really have a favorite from Hoenn).

November 12th, 2011, 10:53 PM
My favorite Electric Pokemon was Jolteon because it's so spiky, but now, it's a tie between Galvantula (because of its CompoundEyes Thunders) and Electivire (sure it's ugly, but its movepool is pretty good).

November 12th, 2011, 11:15 PM
Rotom-W. Not the other Rotom's, but JUST that Rotom, because it looks awesome (and reminds me of a game!) and is great competitively. :3;

I also love Thundurus' design, so awesome, Zekrom's design, also so awesome AND in general Mareep is cute, Galvantula was my ex-favourite (lool) AND Stunfisk is awesome in general. Eelektross can also be fun in battles. :x


Shining Raichu
November 12th, 2011, 11:22 PM
I'll give anybody a cookie if they can guess my favourite Electric Pokemon!

I've been waiting so long for this poll! My favourite is of course the one and only Raichu, and I'm so glad nobody else said it before I did because MY FANDOM MUST BE SEEN AS GREATER THAN EVERYBODY ELSE'S!

Raichu is amazing. I think the reason I love it so much is because when I first started playing Pokemon it was one of my greatest achievements. I used to spend hours in Red Version in the Viridian Forest looking for Pikachus and when I caught one it always made me so indescribably happy. And then to have it evolve into a Raichu was an even bigger deal because you could only do it with a stone (which is a huge deal for a newbie to Pokemon lol). So yeah, nostalgia would be my main reason.

And besides, look at him! He's AWESOME.

November 13th, 2011, 12:09 AM
My favorite among all electric types would be Raichu as well, can't believe how awesome it was when it defeated Pikachu in the anime. It was so aggressive which made it really look strong and confident. Some of my other favorite electric types include Emolga, Pachirisu, Minun, Plusle, Mareep, Pikachu, and Zapdos!

November 13th, 2011, 2:00 AM
My favorite electric type pokemon is luxray. i also like Electivire,Zekrom and Rotom

November 13th, 2011, 2:18 AM
It's a tie between Lanturn and Zebstrika. Lanturns shiny sprite is awesome as well, wish I had one. Runners up include Luxray, Manectric, Galvantula and Ampharos.

Tie between Jolteon and Electrode. I prefer Jolteon's capabilities in battle, but Electrode was my first Electric type and still a personal favorite because it's a mechanical ball that grins. And explodes. Voltorb's pretty cool, looking too.

November 13th, 2011, 8:18 AM
My favorite is Electrode,but the one that's the cutest imo is Emolga.
Zebstrika and Luxray are also tops in my list,they are useful,after all.

Hey, Maggie! I'd never been a big fan of the Magnemite-line until Magnezone was introduced in Gen IV. I really like its design, and it's great to use in battle (if you can handle its mediocre-speed). Its super-awesome typing makes it an Electric Pokemon that's not horribly brittle as well, which is always good. A close second-place would be Lanturn. I've always kind of admired it in a weird way; it's kooky and quirky and was pride of place in my Gold game, yet it doesn't seem to get the love it deserves, which is a shame. Oh well...

November 13th, 2011, 8:32 AM
I do like Manectric, looks quirky.

November 13th, 2011, 12:25 PM
Luxray is probably my favorite, because I have a huge love for anything cat-related.
Plus, the design and entire line is awesome.
I also love Raikou (another cat, of course), it is by far my favorite of the Beast Trio.

Electrode, Magnezone, and Ampharos are runner-ups. (I wish Magnezone had Levitate...)

November 13th, 2011, 12:42 PM
I do like Manectric, looks quirky.

I like Manectric cos of its cry.

Zekrom, nice source of electricity during a power outage... plus since he looks pretty intimidating, he would be a good bodyguard!!!

November 13th, 2011, 6:09 PM
I also love the Mareep line in general too, but old Amphy is my favorite. Love its design. And it can learn Power Gem, my favorite Rock-type move, ever.

I also like Luxray.

November 15th, 2011, 7:24 AM
Probably my favs are the Raichu line (like Raichu the most though), Flaaffy, Rotom and Emolga screw emolga GIVE ME TYNAMO AND JOLTIK <3333

Awww hell yeah Magnezone! Trap dem steel types so my dragons can go DOCTOR OCTAGONAPUS! BLARRRRRRRRRRRRRGHGHGHGHHGHGH! ON THE OPPONENT.

November 17th, 2011, 12:24 AM
I like the classic electric-types. My favorite for the longest time has been Zapdos. It wins.

Of course, Magnemite and Voltorb deserve honorable mention. And I think they did very well with electric-types in B/W: Zekrom, Joltik, and of course Stunfisk. Very original ideas.

Mareep is cute, and of course Stunfisk makes me laugh when I see it, but only Magnemite has a cute googly eye and I just love the design overall. It's a little levitating ball with magnet hands. How is that not adorable? And when I sprite it it's even cuter.

November 17th, 2011, 6:12 PM
He's just so awesome aand has X-ray vision.
Jolteon comes close.


November 17th, 2011, 6:35 PM
electirivire. I love this whole evoultion from elekid, and then to electabuzz

November 18th, 2011, 6:06 AM
I like these:

Pikachu: cause Pikachu is so cute and fuzzy, plus it's evo is totally cool!

Pichu: the super cute tiny Pikachu version! No wonder i can't resesi ^^

Raichu: Love it's looks, really a great evo for Pikachu plus it's cry is cool ;)

Mareep: The first pokemon I ever saw, it was my fave then it's still one of my fave now :)

Flaffy: I dunno, i just love sheep so yeah xD

Ampharose: So cute, and cool, love it's design.

Emolga: The new Pachirisu aww!~

Pachirisu: Love it's super cute cheeks aww!

Jolteon: I love all the eevee evo's so i love this one to :)

Minun: Plain cuteness :3

Plusle: same as Minun

Shinx: cute pokemon, i love it's evo's to.

November 18th, 2011, 7:18 AM
Pachirisu: Pachirisu is cutest Pokémon ever and Dawn have one! Also Dawn's Pachirisu have beautiful combination moves in anime. <3

Luxray: Luxray was my second Pokémon in Pearl. Also it's cool and have great moves.

November 18th, 2011, 9:24 AM
Raichu: Tough looking S.O.B in my team

Zapdos: The 1st fly and zap pokemon! Beat that!! lol

Manetric: Awesome apperance, and it's shiny version kick's arse.

Zekrom: The newest Electric type, plus it's part Dragon, need I say more? XD

November 18th, 2011, 3:11 PM
The entire Shinx line. They're among the few Sinnoh Pokemon that I actually like.

November 19th, 2011, 9:45 AM
Manectric has always been my favorite ever since its debut in Gen III despite it being outclassed by Jolteon.

November 19th, 2011, 6:34 PM
I like Zekrom, Jolteon, Galvantula and Luxray.

November 20th, 2011, 11:05 PM
Favourite Pokemon (Non-Competitive)
Jolteon has to be the coolest electric pokemon. His design is sick and just screams out coolness. His amazing thunders are always a joy to spam and he looks good doing so ^.^

Ok Rotom W has been a staple on many of my teams and many others for obvious reasons. He can take down so many threats in the current metagame through his crippling moves such as Will-O-Wisp or even trick. He can also take down threats through his powerful STAB Hydropumps or Thunders while having the ability to volt switch out of trouble

I love those Pokemon, they are awesome and cute too.

I seem to have a liking towards Electric Pokemon, they have awesome designs.

I like most Rotom forms and Pikachu, but that's it, strangely, I don't like "the other generation Pikachus"(Namely Pichu,Minun,Plusle,Pachirisu and Emolga) very much ... I guess they just don't appeal to me,but Emolga is ... okay

November 21st, 2011, 10:56 AM
My favourite one is Zapdos.
I often use it in my team, and I'm never disappointed. Its double type is totally useful.
Tough, well-designed (1G rox), graceful, stylishness... It's so badass !

November 21st, 2011, 1:35 PM
My favorite electric Pokemon is Shinx. (It's also one of my favorite Pokemon of all time along with Eevee and Victini) Shinx is so cute. I wish I could pick it up and hug it. I plan on getting a Shinx plushy cause Shinx is so cute.

November 22nd, 2011, 4:17 PM
Hmmm my favorite Electric type Pokemon are a tie between Rotom (normal form) and Zapdos.


November 23rd, 2011, 10:14 AM
I love Electric-types, so this is gonna be tough. Initial list:


Hmmm... I can narrow it down to Zebstrika and Ampharos from there... I'm gonna go with Zebstrika. I'd totally train one of those if Pokémon were real.

November 23rd, 2011, 8:38 PM
I love Luxray and his whole evolution family!

December 7th, 2011, 3:43 PM
Pretty sure the only Electric type I've ever used is Raichu. He is by far my favorite Pokemon of the non-ubers.

Pikachu, Pichu are very cute, who doesn't like them??

December 12th, 2011, 1:57 PM
It's a tie between Luxray and Rotom. The Luxray brings back memories...

December 12th, 2011, 7:21 PM
A fair few of my favourite Pokemon are electric types and it's hard to pick a favourite :( If I were to narrow it down to the top 3 it would be Raichu, Jolteon and Zekrom. As for the absolute favourite well that changes quite frequently. Right now it would probably be Zekrom. Zekrom is a bit of a badass imo...
