Electivire Appearance


Electivire is a big humanoid Pokémon with yellow fur and black stripes on its back. It has red eyes, a black patch on its forehead and a pair of antennae with bulbous ends, but no neck. Electivire's back has a design that looks like an electric outlet while spiky and ruffled fur covers its face and shoulders. It features two black tails that resemble open electrical cables and have red rounded tips. Electivire also has three clawed toes on its feet and five black fingers on each hand.


Behavior


Electivire is said to have the best electrical-energy output of all Electric-type Pokémon. The tips of its tails create electricity, which shocks opponents with nearly 20,000 volts when they come into contact. By hanging on to its tails, it can also electrify its punches and as its electric charge grows, blue sparks shoot out from between its antennas. When Electivire is excited, it thumps its chest causing thunder and sparks to shoot around it. When it is struggling, the voltage it produces might rise and Electivire's pulse determines the quantity of electric energy it can generate. It is a parasite that feeds on electric currents.


Strengths and Weaknesses


Since Electivire is an Electric-type Pokemon, it is resistant against Flying, Steel, and Electric-type moves and takes only half the normal damage against these types of moves. In contrast, it’s weak against Ground-type moves taking twice the normal damage from them.


Best Moveset


Electivire is a risky Pokemon with a high offensive stat distribution and a powerful moveset. As an Electric-type, Electivire competes among many other Electric-types in this league for a roster spot and finds it difficult to stand out among the crowd. Due to a rather poor durability, Electivire is often disregarded as a viable pick. While its high attack stat does make its powerful moves hurt more, the high risk of possibly fainting before dealing significant damage makes it a risky bet.

Thunder Shock is the superior fast move of choice, featuring very fast energy generation but poor damage output. Its secondary fast move is Low Kick, which is pretty weak, but at least has counter coverage. Wild Charge is the main charge move for Electivire, which can deal huge STAB damage if unshielded. Either Thunder Punch or Ice Punch are chosen for their lower energy cost, which lets them bait shields. The former benefits from STAB, while the latter offers wide coverage, including against Electivire's weakness to Ground-type foes.

How to catch Electivire in Pokémon Go?


Electivire is one of the more difficult Pokemon to find in Pokemon Go. For starters, players will either need an Elekid or Electabuzz to get an Electivire and here is how players can find each of them:


Elekid: Currently only available in the wild or through trading. It's currently not in the egg rotation at this moment but it may rejoin in the future.


Electabuzz: Players will need to either trade, find it in the wild, or give Elekid 25 Candy.

Players will need to give Elekid 25 candy to evolve into Electabuzz which needs 100 Candy and 1 Sinnoh Stone, in turn, to evolve into Electivire. Sinnoh Stones are fairly tough to come by but players can get them as the 7th day of Field Research reward, participating in a PvP Trainer Battle, defeating a Team Rocket Leader, or as part of the Mystery Item in the Go Battle League.

Conclusion


Congratulations! You now know all about this 20,000 volts producing Pokemon. An interesting thing to note is that Electivire’s evolutionary family may be considered a counterpart of Magmortar's. Since both evolve starting at Level 30 and their evolved forms evolve via trading with an item containing the suffix "-izer" Both have the same gender ratio (75% male, 25% female) and both are typically exclusive to one version of a pair of games. Electivire is a risky Pokemon, with a high offensive stat distribution, and a powerful moveset but it fails to stand out amongst other Electric types in Competitive battles.
