PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Spark is superior to Volt Switch for the weave DPS and energy gain. Volt Switch’s huge cast time make it difficult to dodge.

  • Tackle, Electrode’s legacy charge move, lacks STAB or any type advantage.

  • Thunderbolt is slightly superior to Discharge for damage output, but both are reasonable.

  • Hyper Beam and Foul Play have no uses on Electrode. Use your TMs here.

PVE Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Volt Switch is clearly superior on defense, doing more than double the damage that Spark and Tackle do.

  • Thunderbolt is Electrode’s best move, splitting the difference between charge time and damage.

  • Discharge is also great, since Electrode is frail. It sometimes does more damage than Thunderbolt.

  • Foul Play doesn't really provide meaningful coverage for Electrode, and also lacks STAB. 

  • Hyper Beam is too slow and easy to dodge.

PVE Overview

Electrode’s main series asset, a blistering base Speed, only has a minor impact on its otherwise bad stats in Pokemon GO. Don’t let that smile deceive you; this Pokemon performs terribly in most matchups. Against Water or Flying-type raids, or Gyarados, chances are you have one of the many Pokemon that outperform Electrode.

PvP Moveset Explanation

Spark + Discharge and Thunderbolt

Spark has 2 DPT (Damage per Turn) and 4 EPT (Energy Per Turn), meaning it doesn't deal much damage, but it does charge up moves quickly. Discharge (65 Power/45 Energy) charges quickly thanks to Spark, and allows Electrode to throw out fair amounts of damage quickly. Thunderbolt (90 Power/55 Energy) is a bit slower, but provides higher damage-per-energy by comparison, and is a better general choice when shields are down.

Hyper Beam could be used instead of Thunderbolt to surprise an unexpecting opponent, but otherwise doesn't give consistent results. Foul Play doesn't provide meaningful coverage for Electrode, but may have some niche use depending on the format. 

PvP Rating Explanation

Great League: 1 / 5

Electrode has no real niche to call its own. Its only viable moves are electric type, its own typing is pure electric, and its stats are not good for PVP. Electrode is easily outclassed by most other electric types, and probably shouldn't be used unless it's your only option and your team is desperate for an electric type. Even then, find something else ASAP.

Ultra League: 0 / 5

The same as above, but even worse.

Master League: 0 / 5

You'd probably be better off using something that the opponent's Pokemon directly counters than a Super Effective damaging Electrode in the Master League.
