Ranking the Pokemon: #56- Electrode



I'm fairly certain Electrode was the first Pokemon I ever heard of, so it certainly gets brownie points for that. And it can use them, because it ain't all that when it comes to battling. 

Sure, the inversed Pokeball is the fastest kid in Generation I. But all that speed isn't THAT useful if you can't do much with it. Fortunately, Electrode does learn Thunder Wave, so you can at least paralyze everyone on the other team, if you play your cards right. Outside of the fast Speed, doe, Lecty is lacking. Its special is okay, and everything else is below average or even bad.

While Explosion is a standard move for Electrode, it's not the best, since its Attack is so low. But it's always fun seeing your Pokemon explode, so I'll give it a pass. Slap Thunder Wave and Thunderbolt on it, then toss in Light Screen for good measure, and hey, you've got a serviceable leader. And you could do a lot worse than that, even if Electrode isn't anything special.

Battling Grade: C+
