What are Electric-type Pokemon?
Electric-type Pokemon often have a lot of yellow in their designs since it’s the color of lightning in Pokemon games and anime. They can also have electricity-related names like Wattrel, Eelektrik, or Bliztle, among many others.
Electric-type Pokemon are tied with Normal types for having the fewest weaknesses, making it tough to exploit type effectiveness in battles. There’s usually at least one Electric-type specialist in mainline Pokemon games.
All Electric-type Pokemon weaknesses
Electric-type Pokemon are only weak against Ground-type moves. Since it’s their only weakness, you should pick Ground-type Pokemon that know Ground-type attacks to gain STAB (Same Type Attack Bonus). Also, Ground types are immune to Electric-type moves, so you should be safe.
Keep in mind that any Electric-type Pokemon with the Levitate Ability, the Air Balloon held item, or those who use moves like Magnet Rise or Telekinesis will be immune to Ground-type attacks.
Electric-type attacks aren’t very effective against other Electric-type Pokemon as well as Grass and Dragon types. Relying on these species with Ground-type attacks is a good strategy, but keep in mind that some Electric-type Pokemon are dual types with different weaknesses and resistances.
All Electric-type Pokemon resistances
Electric-type Pokemon can resist Flying, Steel, and Electric-type moves. From Gen 6 onward, Electric-type Pokemon can’t get paralyzed.
While Ground-type Pokemon are the best pick to fight an Electric-type, keep in mind that there are many dual types. Electric has been paired with every other type in the franchise, so you might have to take different weaknesses and resistances into account.
