PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

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

  • Charge Beam is a step down. 

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

  • Thunder is an inferior option.

  • Overheat is a powerful move, but isn't meant for Shadow Manectric. 

  • Flame Burst has no utility on Shadow Manectric.

PVE Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Snarl lacks STAB, but is less likely to be resisted.

  • Thunder Fang is stronger than Charge Beam on defense. 

  • 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 doesn't deal a lot of damage, especially without STAB, but is less likely to be resisted. 

  • Overheat is too slow on defense as a 1-bar move. 

PVE Overview

Shadow Manectric skirts viability, but falls short in the tremendous shadows cast by the top Electric Types in the game. It's not bad, but it definitely isn't worth heavy investment for the most part.

PvP Moveset Explanation

Snarl or Thunder Fang + Wild Charge and Overheat or Flame Burst

Snarl is more favorable as its higher energy gains lets Manectric take advantage of its charge moves sooner. Thunder Fang provides a different style of play that focuses on damage output rather than energy gains, though this might be more niche. Charge Beam could be chosen if the extra STAB damage and Electric-type coverage is needed, but this is more situational. 

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. Overheat is significantly stronger than Flame Burst, and provides some coverage should Electric-attacks be resisted. It should be noted that opting for both Wild Charge and Overheat makes Manectric extremely vulnerable due to their self-debuffs. 

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: 0 / 5

Manectric would appreciate more stats to compete in Master League.
