    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.

                    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

                      Luxray because it was pretty cool looking back then.

                        Luxray, mostly.

                        .... For some reason I wasn't really keen on using many other electric types. Magnezone just seemed like a pain and it was irritating trying to find someone to trade for Electivire. @_@

                        Although once I have the free time to restart Plat, I might go with Rotom as my Electric-type just to vary things up a bit. :o

                          The one, the lovely and the only Pachirisu! Although having done a few false start play-throughs of Pearl, I remember also using Shinx for a while. I am partial to cuties.

                            I used Luxray on my most recent team for Platinum. I really like its design, and its pretty powerful once you train it. I think the next time I play through the story, I'd like to give Raichu a try.
