    Jolteon and Raikou have incredibly shallow and predictable movepools. Zapdos fails against toxic unless it has rest, and if it does it's easy to switch into with a rock user. either way it takes 25% from Stealth Rocks.

    All 3 are easily walled by Blissey, which severely restricts their usefulness.

    I would like a defensive electric type, since even though the type has terrible resists, it only has one weak, and with levitate that weak goes away. I also mentioned fire/electric before because I think a fire/electric would look awesome. And have interesting STAB attacks.

    We have enough good bugs already. Let's pick something else.

    I can't help but feel we're sorely in need of a nice new Electric Pokemon.

    I can't think of any worthwhile Electrics that were added to this gen off the top of my head.

    I voted for dragon. A non-uber dragon that must resist dragon attacks is the holy grail for building a mono dragon team; finally something to switch into draco meteor!

    I don't understand what you're saying here. Are you proposing a Dragon with a new ability that absorbs Dragon attacks?

    It essentially has to be a Dragon/Steel, as steel is the only thing that resists dragon. A Dragon-type Flash Fire would be wonderful though lol.
