PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Charge Beam paired with Wild Charge is Manectric’s best moveset due to typing and synergy.

  • Snarl does more DPS than Charge Beam, but Manectric isn’t a Dark-type.

  • Thunder is an inferior option.

  • Flame Burst has no utility on Manectric.

PVE Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Snarl does more defensive DPS, so it’s preferred to Charge Beam.

  • While Wild Charge does less DPS than Thunder, it’s a two-bar charge move, so it will get used more often than Thunder.

  • Flame Burst is the lowest DPS charged move on defense.

PVE Overview

Manectric has a cool look, but it sadly arrived too late to be used much. It has a good Attack stat, but it’s less than that of the more common Jolteon, and Jolteon also has a higher Defense stat. Trainers who also have Raikou (or Zapdos) also probably rarely use Jolteon as is.

PvP Moveset Explanation

Snarl or Charge Beam + Wild Charge and Flame Burst

Snarl is more favorable as its higher energy gains lets Manectric take advantage of its charge moves sooner. Charge Beam could be chosen if the extra STAB damage and Electric-type coverage is needed, but this is more niche. 

Wild Charge is the best Electric-type charge move in the game, costs the least amount of energy among Manectric's charge moves, and just makes Thunder redundant. Flame Burst is the only other option available, and while it's not a particularly strong move, at least provides some coverage should Electric-type attacks be resisted. 

PvP Rating Explanation

Great League: 2 / 5

Manectric is a very fragile and vulnerable mono-Electric Pokemon, and heavily relies on dealing huge damage with Wild Charge to be successful. Thus Manectric would prefer to fight opponents that don't have shields, or at least play from a 2-1 shield advantage. Unfortunately Manectric's poor bulk and lack of a cheaper charge move to bait shields makes it difficult to perform well in the meta, with notable losses against common Water-types like Azumarill and Dewgong in almost all even-shielding scenarios. 

Ultra League: 2 / 5

The level 50 update allows Manectric to use XL candy to reach the CP cap of Ultra League, which gives it more stats to improve its performance. Unfortunately its drawbacks with fragility and moveset still hold it back in Ultra League. Wins against opponents weak to Electric-type attacks like Water-types are not always guaranteed, which is disappointing for Manectric's role. 

Master League: 1 / 5

Manectric would appreciate more stats to compete in Master League.
