Any electric attack completely destroys Gyarados, and Jolteon is one of the best ways to counter Gyarados. It out speeds Gyarados and can just set off an electric type move with its impressive base 110 special attack stat (most likely Thunder because normally Gyarados is in the rain)
Jolteon gets OHKO'd if it switches into Waterfall or Earthquake. Jolteon is only a check, not a counter. Please read the OP for more details.
