Electivire's Manga Information is unknown as of writing.
Electivire finds itself in the Neverused (NU) tier of competitive battling. With a wide offensive movepool that consists of moves like Flamethrower and Earthquake, Electivire is capable of hitting a lot of the tier super effectively. Its good attacking stats give it the ability to run its physical and special attacks to the fullest and act as an effective mixed wallbreaker. It has a decent Speed stat that gives it effective wallbreaking capabilities and makes it a decent balance breaker. However, Electivire's Special Attack stat is relatively average, which forces it to rely heavily on super effective coverage against bulkier foes and becomes problematic when up against foes like Musharna and Mega Audino. Its physical movepool is inferior to its special movepool, making it so that Electivire is usually more focused towards the special attacking spectrum when using its STAB attack and coverage attacks. It only possesses a few resistances, has poor bulk, and cannot outspeed a number of common offensive threats, which makes its matchup against offense poor. Electivire faces competition from Lanturn, Rotom, and Manectric as an Electric-type, as the former two have better typings that allow for it to have better defensive synergy with a team while the latter possesses better Speed and Special Attack stats.
