Is it just me or is it not very well- worded/structured? I'd be happy to make some changes to it, I just wanted to double check with other community members first. Volsak 01:25, 30 September 2009 (UTC)

It's terrible. Now you have something to do ;D Birthday! Alpha CuboneKing 01:28, 30 September 2009 (UTC)
lol yay It's been bugging me ever since i first read it. I'll get on it right away Volsak 01:37, 30 September 2009 (UTC)
The deed is done. I am open to any CONSTRUCTIVE criticism. in other words, if I did a lousy job please tell me :P Volsak 02:08, 30 September 2009 (UTC)
The only thing you did wrong was not capitalize "Electric-type". I'll do that. Birthday! Alpha CuboneKing 02:10, 30 September 2009 (UTC)

Trivia

I think it's worth something that every generation has introduced an electric type pokemon based on rodents. Pikachu and Raichu, Pichu, Plusle and Minun, Pachirisu Luord 00:11, 28 May 2010 (UTC)Luord

Can any one find out when the colour of electric attacks changed from yellow to blue? I think it was in Gen III however i also know that some older pokemon keep the yellow attack colour while im almost sure that the new ones have blue. Tonberry 15:35, 10 September 2010 (UTC)

I realized a few things the other day. I'll mention them here for interest:

  • Heat Rotom has the only type combination simultaneously resistant to Fire, Ice, and Electric attacks.
  • Except for Electric itself, every elemental type that resists Electric atacks (i.e. Grass, Ground, and Dragon) is vulnerable to Ice.

Wild Bolt

What the heck is Wild Bolt? Not a move I've ever heard of, and it's stats are all question-marked. Is this from some side-game? Satosuke 01:59, 8 August 2010 (UTC)

New move for Shimama, it's from Black and White so not much information has been released yet.--PhantomJunkie 02:01, 8 August 2010 (UTC)
We probably shouldn't be adding new moves from Gen V though if we don't have any new information on them yet. Like how anime pages are protected from edits until the episode in question is released. But I'm no moderator or admin, so I'll avoid an edit war over this. Satosuke 02:03, 8 August 2010 (UTC)
I agree. However, we didn't have it there until today, even though it was released two months ago. However, a user keeps adding Generation V info to the pages. Turtwig's A-B-Cs (talk | contribs) 02:24, 8 August 2010 (UTC)

Weakness to electric moves

If I didn't make any mistake with figures, there should be more species weak to electric type moves, with 158, as compared to the ones weak to ground types moves, which should be 152 ( taking levitate into account ). This should be enough to consider the electric type one of the best offensively along with the classic ice, ground, fire, rock and fighting.

Weak to Fairy type

Eeveelutions.png Clockwise from Flareon and tell me what you think. Considering that Electric is one of only two types to have only one weakness up until now, there's no doubt that Fairy will counters it. Go on and tell me bull****, unconfirmed, unreliable prediction, but this is gonna happen. - unsigned comment from ‎Acellutor (talkcontribs)

And when it's confirmed, it'll be added. Until then, it's still speculation. --It's Funktastic~!話してください 23:25, 11 June 2013 (UTC)
I guess magic beats science? SeanWheeler (talk) 15:59, 12 August 2013 (UTC)

ampharos

there should be an asterisk next to ampharos in the pure column saying "normal form" or something and ampharos in the primary column with an asterisk saying "mega form" or something. 0danmaster0 (talk) 17:52, 12 August 2013 (UTC)

Rotom Typings

Can I recommend a small change to make the table look a little neater. At the moment we list all Rotom forms twice which I think is unnecessary

(Sorry this takes up a lot of room, I don't know how to make collapsible panels)

Can we change this:

# Name Type 1 Type 2
081 Magnemite Magnemite* Electric Steel
082 Magneton Magneton* Electric Steel
145 Zapdos Zapdos Electric Flying
462 Magnezone Magnezone Electric Steel
479 Rotom Rotom Electric Ghost
Rotom Rotom* Electric Ghost
Rotom Electric Ghost
Rotom Electric Ghost
Rotom Electric Ghost
Rotom Electric Ghost
Rotom Rotom* Electric Fire
Rotom Electric Water
Rotom Electric Ice
Rotom Electric Flying
Rotom Electric Grass
587 Emolga Emolga Electric Flying
642 Thundurus Thundurus Electric Flying
Thundurus Electric Flying
??? Helioptile Helioptile Electric Normal
??? Dedenne Dedenne Electric Fairy

To this:

# Name Type 1 Type 2
081 Magnemite Magnemite* Electric Steel
082 Magneton Magneton* Electric Steel
145 Zapdos Zapdos Electric Flying
462 Magnezone Magnezone Electric Steel
479 Rotom Rotom Electric Ghost
Rotom Rotom* Electric Fire
Rotom Electric Water
Rotom Electric Ice
Rotom Electric Flying
Rotom Electric Grass
587 Emolga Emolga Electric Flying
642 Thundurus Thundurus Electric Flying
Thundurus Electric Flying
??? Helioptile Helioptile Electric Normal
??? Dedenne Dedenne Electric Fairy

I think it is better to list all Pokémon under all of their type combinations. Same reason we list Magnemite twice; it makes it clear what they were. --SnorlaxMonster 11:32, 17 August 2013 (UTC)

Trivia cleanup

Would someone remove these two piece of trivia as they are no longer true. 1)The three Pokémon that have had their types changed between generations (Magnemite, Magneton, and Rotom's alternate forms) are all part Electric type. 2) It is the only type to have had all of its moves used in the anime. --HoennMaster 00:07, 25 September 2013 (UTC)

G1's Blaine gym.

When it asks about "thunder moves", in Japanese versions, it mentions かみなリ タイプ. Eridanus (talk) 19:00, 30 August 2014 (UTC)
