Overview

Electrode is one of those Pokemon that only kills something by killing itself. Sadly, it is probably one of the worst Electric-types, possibly surpassing only Plusle and Minun.

Name Item Nature

Leftovers / Liechi Berry Hasty

Substitute down to 1 HP for the OHKO with Explosion, but after Electrode gets the Liechi Berry boost, it might be predictable. All in all, it's risky to use, but it's cool. Electrode can be a pretty dangerous Pokemon, especially as it is faster than the feared Aerodactyl. Only use Leftovers with Substitute, because Electrode won't survive much of anything.

Hit a 396 Speed stat, and put the rest in Attack and Special Attack.

Checks and Counters

Blissey and Snorlax easily soak up its special moves, and Celebi can wall most of what Electrode can throw out. Raikou works well, as do any of the Ground-types—Flygon, Swampert, Claydol, Steelix—depending on its Hidden Power. Venusaur and Exeggutor are also good switch-ins to Electrode.
