Pojo's Pokemon of the Week



Date Reviewed: 03.25.07

Ratings & Reviews Summary: 3.25

Ratings are based on a 1 to 5 scale.
1 being the worst.  3 ... average.  5 is the highest rating.

Reeve Manectric.
# 310.
Type: Electric.
Ability: Static / Lightning rod.
Locations: Route 118 (Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald), Snag from Cipher Admin Eldes.

Hi everyone. Welcome to another Pokémon of the Week. Today we’re reviewing Manectric, the discharge Pokémon.

Manectric has very high speed and special attack. Unfortunately that’s about it. It is often compared to Jolteon and this one always loses to it. It learns crunch which is kind of a decent attack. Its move pool is also limited.

Both abilities are good. Static paralyzes (which is always an advantage) and lighting rod is great in double battles (which aren’t as usual as they used to be around here).

This is also a potential thunder dancer, so let’s skip that for today shall we? Instead of it we have…

Nature: Timid (+ Speed, - Attack).
Equip: Leftovers.
EV´s: 129 Speed, 129 HP, 252 Special Attack.
- Thunderbolt
- HP grass/ice/water
- Thunderwave
- Substitute

This is not a very good special sweeper; thunderbolt and HP are for type advantage. Paralyze, substitute and attack. I have also seen attract on this one, forcing a switch. So try it if you feel like.

Nature: Timid (+ Speed, - Attack).
Equip: Leftovers.
EV´s: 252 Speed, 252 Special Attack, 6 Defense.
- Thunderbolt
- HP grass/ice/water
- Thunderwave
- Crunch

This is kind of the sweeper. I don’t think this works great but it is a decent move set for this one.

When should I use this Pokémon?
As your electric type I guess. Unfortunately for Manectric, it’s never going to beat Jolteon or Magneton.

What should I use against this Pokémon?
Ground types anyone? Physical weepers also work fine Remember the static ability.

Bottom line:
Not as good as Jolteon, sorry, but decent anyway.


Hope you enjoyed.
lilgroudon Manectric a shocking dog pokemon I like this pokemon stage 1 can get in the early game that hard for electric pokemon, I prefer static, over lightning rod, a chance of paralyzing something is great shocking isn’t it, I love the speed and special attack on this guy, Roar gives this guy a lot of disruption, he can us protect and some people use him with rain dance But I got to go so let me wrap this up I’m pretty sure reeve can give you lots of info.
But I will love to give him a 4/5

Groudon out

Oh yeah poke fact
Manectric EX is a beast in pokemon when put together with mew ex in a deck called Mewtric.
Ty Hey everyone, this is my first review so be kind. If you ever have comments or questions on any pokemon games or about yu-gi-oh or naruto, email me at thesannin@yahoo.com. I'm an aggressive player so that will explain some of my reviews. I will be reviewing for the GBA games at least until D/P come out in the U.S. and I can get a copy. Now for my first review - Manectric.

High Speed
High Special Atk

Low Defense
Low Special Defense

Manectric is one of my favorites from R/S/E. I definitely have a thing for pokemon with high speed and atk or special atk. My move set for him would be this:

Item: Leftovers
Hidden Power (Ice)
Thunder Wave

other moves would be Thunder (only if you have one or more rain dancers) and Substitute.
I would give him Static for sure. Overall, a great pokemon, just watch out for Laturn and Quagsire, as they could become problems.

Rating 4/5
James Manectric
Type: Electric
Ability(s): Static
Lightning Rod
Locations: Evolve Electrike
Route 118

Today we are reviewing the discharge Pokemon, Manectric.

At first glance, Manectric looks to be the usual electric Pokemon with Static as its ability, but it does have potential. With the Static ability, if a Pokemon would attack with contact, there would be a 30% chance of that Pokemon becoming paralyzed. Also, having static as the ability would free up an attack spot that would be used for thunder wave.

Then in double battles, Manectric is great. Having lightning rod insures a water Pokemon or a flying Pokemon doesn’t get hit with an electric attack.

With that said, here are some strategies for Manectric:

Nature: Timid (+speed, -attack)
EV’s: 252 speed, 252 special attack, 6 hp
Ability: Static
Equip: Salac Berry
-Thunderbolt (TM 24)
-Crunch (Egg Move)
-Hidden Power (Grass or Water)(TM 10)
-Double Team (TM 32)

Basic special sweeper here. Double Team is there to annoy your opponent.

Nature: Modest (+special attack, -attack)
EV’s: 252 speed, 252 special attack, 6 hp
Ability: Lightning Rod
Equip: Salac Berry
-Thunder (Lvl 45)
-Hidden Power (Water)(TM 10)
-Rain Dance (TM18)
-Thunder Wave (Lvl 4 as Electrike)

This is the double battle Manectric. When teamed with a water Pokemon (like Kyogre), this Manectric can be a real pain. Thunder Wave is used to slow opponent’s down. Rain Dance is there just if your opponent would happen to remove the rain from the field.

Bottom Line: Manectric is just an average Pokemon with average abilities.
