Electric / Dark ftw! - What it does for sun teams? It will be able to deal with Lati@s to an extend, threaten the various water-types in rain teams with Electric STAB, provide sun teams with a Flying resistance, giving them a real option at tanking Hurricane instead of banging on luck with Ninetales, keep offensive pressure with Volt Switch, and finally give to sun teams a much needed Pursuit trapper. As you can see there are various things that a pokemon with such a typing would be able to do for sun teams. And it can get even better, as if we give it a water absorbing ability it will dominate Politoed, making all choiced sets a liability to its Pursuit trapping. - Will this Pokemon only benefit Sun teams? I don't think so, but i don't see why this is a problem. The way i see it we want to make rain worse, sun better, and generally make more popular some rare types while bringing down some more popular types. And this is what a Pokemon with Dark / Electric typing would do. Certainly decrease the usage of rain, help sun, and make Dark more popular, while toning down Water types. I am not even sure if this Pokemon would be used in sand teams, which usually have better choices for Pursuit trappers (Scizor and TTar), don't really have a problem with Lati@s and if they have the other pursuiters deal with it better, and regarding the Electric typing, Rotom-W usually fits better on such teams. tl;dr A Dark / Electric mon would help sun while also working best in sun, where it isn't outclassed. Sand teams already have Ttar / Scizor / Rotom-W, Rain teams have Scizor / Thundurus-T / Jolteon and they will take a bit hit from its introduction anyway, and the same is true for weatherless usually (better pursuit trappers and electric mons).
