I used Magnezone for DPPt. I had never used Magnemite or Magneton before apart from just catching them to complete the pokedex, so when I found out that they had given Magnemite a third stage evolution that was obtained in an innovative new way I was really curious about getting to know this guy. I wanted to have at least one pokemon that evolved based on its surroundings in Sinnoh and thought this guy looked pretty cool. I like that he became spaceship, I fell in love with his long, wonky cry and definitely think he is a solid Pokemon to use.

For HGSS I wanted to remake my original team from when I first played GSC and got an Ampharos. He was even better than I remembered :)

        I don't recall using any Electric types in Sinnoh. I used a Raichu early on though.

        I tried using Luxray recently. Nice design but very underwhelming.

          In Platinum, I didn't use an Electric-type Pokémon, while I used Lanturn in SoulSilver.

          I used my Intimidate Luxray, I was so in love with it. It's a great Pokémon, and I trained it up to Lv. 100 in my first playthrought :D

              Strangely enough I don't recall having a real Electric type in DPPt, Don't think I had one at all in my original playthrough and as for my nuzruns, Diamond had none whil my first Plat had Porygon-Z with Electric attacks. In my 2nd Plat nuzrun I had a Luxio, but he psyducking died at the Ghost gym so I replaced him with a Jolteon.

              As for HGSS, I used Ampharos and Lanturn :)

              I see pretty much everyone using Luxray in D/P/Pt, but I think you should all give Pachirisu a chance. It's surprisingly tanky for a Pikaclone, and the success of both the one used on a VGC-winning team and Ninjarisu from Marriland's Platinum Nuzlocke only made me love it even more.

                    Magnemite was and still is one of my favorites from Gen 1 so I naturally went for Magnezone. I am still kind of annoyed that Magnezone, the flying saucer, can't learn fly.

                      I didn’t use one in Sinnoh.

                      In SoulSilver, I used an Ampharos and, along with my Stantler, he really wrecked.

                        Like most, I utilised a Luxray throughout D/P/Pt. I caught it early on and used it for the entirety of the game.

                            I tried a LOT of elec types in Platinum but I think the winner was Jolteon it's so good. I tried Raichu, but it is EXTRAORDINARILY frail. Don't use it. Magnezone i don't think was a success because you get it AFTER you need it most. Not to mention Luxray was probably one of the best but awful move pool :(

                            In Diamond, I know I used Luxray bc I'm a basic rattata and I was excited for an electric lion. lol I used Rotom in Platinum bc I love him. And then SoulSilver uhhh I think I went with Ampharos. I know I used a Raikou in HeartGold at one point, and a Magnezone on another playthrough. And a Jolteon at one point. I played these games a lot, aha.

                                  Shinx and Ampharos are good options, since they are the almost only pokemon you can meet in the wild during your playthrough.

                                  I know that I've at least used Shinx and Magnezone in my Gen 4 playthroughs

                                  might've been others too, but idr

                                    Never played Gen 4 but if I had to go with an Electric Type(as tempting as Shinx is), I'd go with Jolteon. Special Attacker with exceptional speed to go with it.

                                      I use luxray, it has the coolest design and is really strong. Actually I'm my current run i am using one, and it is my MVP

                                        Luxray because it was pretty cool looking back then.
