Manectric (ライボルト) is the 79th Pokémon in the Hoenn Pokédex. It is an Electric Type, and it is known as the Discharge Pokémon.

Manectric can have one of two Abilities: Static, an Ability that inflicts an opponent with Paralysis if it uses an attack that requires physical contact; or Lightningrod, a move that draws all Electric-Type moves to it, and in Generation V, Electric-type moves won't do any damage as well as increase the Special Attack of the Pokémon that has this Ability. Manectric from the Dream World use the Minus Ability. This Ability increases the Pokémon's Special Attack by 50% when battling with another Pokémon that has either the Plus or Minus Ability.

Electrike evolves into Manectric starting at Level 26.

Manectric is in the Field Egg Group, and its Egg takes approximately 5,120 Steps to hatch. It takes Manectric 1,250,000 Experience Points to reach Level 100.

[edit] Game Information

[edit] Original Games

Manectric appears at Route 118 in Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald.

Manectric can only be obtained by evolving an Electrike in Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum. Manectric appears at the Safari Zone's Rocky Beach area in Heart Gold and Soul Silver. Place 10 Forest Objects in the area and Electrike will start appearing right away, without having to wait any number of days.

Manectric can be found at Route 3 in a Hidden Grotto in Black 2 and White 2.

[edit] Spin-off Games

Manectric is one of the Shadow Pokémon found in Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness. It can be Snagged from Cipher Admin Eldes on Citadark Isle.

Manectric appears at Endless Levels 51 & 57, Forever Level 1 and Mr. Who's Den in Pokémon Trozei!.

Manectric can only be obtained by evolving an Electrike in the first Mystery Dungeon game. In Explorers of Time, Explorers of Darkness and Explorers of Sky, Manectric appears at the first 15 floors of Hidden Land and I1F-8F, but Manectric Cannot Be Recruited, thus the only way to obtain one is by evolving an Electrike. Manectric is exclusive to Light Adventure Squad in Mystery Dungeon 3, appearing on the Path to Treasure Island B10-B17.

Manectric appears in multiple locations in the first Pokémon Ranger game. Manectric did not appear in Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia, but returned in Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs at Mt. Layuda Island's 2F Interior & 2F West Cave in the Present; and in the Thunder Temple missions "Are You for Riolu?", "A Shock Everywher You Turn," and "Panic at the Perplexing Temple" in the past. In each mission, battle Manectric to obtain its Slate, then defeat the Boss within the time limit in order to keep the Slates that you obtain. The Manectric slate is harder to obtain--more often than not you'll obtain the slate of its pre-evoled form Electrike.

Manectric can be found at World Axle Factory B2 in Pokémon Rumble Blast.

[edit] Trading Card Game

Manectric appears in a total of 18 Sets. It is listed as an Uncommon Card in the EX Ruby and Sapphire, EX Team Magma Vs Team Aqua, EX Deoxys, EX Holon Phantoms, Majestic Dawn, Supreme Victors (Team Galactic Card), and Arceus sets. Manectric is listed as a Rare Card in the EX Ruby and Sapphire, EX Team Magma Vs Team Aqua, EX Deoxys (EX Card), EX Emerald (2), EX Crystal Guardians, Mysterious Treasures, Platinum, Arceus and Dragons Exalted (2) sets.

[edit] Anime/Manga Information

[edit] Anime

Wattson was using an Electrike in a rematch battle against Ash and his Torkoal in the episode Manectric Charge!. During the one-on-one match, Wattson's Electrike evolved into a Manectric and would defeat Ash's Torkoal.

Noland also had a Manectric that Ash could have chosen to battle in the episode Numero Uno Articuno, but instead chose to face Noland's Articuno with his Charizard.

An Electrike also evolved into a Manectric in the episode The Electrike Company.

[edit] Movies

Another trainer used a Manectric in the film Jirachi Wishmaker, and Wild Manectric made an appearance in Arceus and the Jewel of Life.

[edit] Manga

Manectric's Manga info is unknown at this time.

[edit] Pokémon Information

[edit] Competitive Battling

Manectric finds itself in the Rarely-Utilized Tier of Competitive Battling. With an equally high Speed and Special Attack, it can be utilized as a viable option to land a Revenge-KO, and with Lightningrod it can switch into an Electric-Type move and receive an Increase to its Special Attack. It can also use Overheat, which really punishes Grass-Type and Steel-Type Pokémon but it also reduces its Special Attack.

Like most Electric-Type Pokémon, Manectric doesn't have great defenses. Opposing Pokémon that are faster than Manectric-whether it is holding a Choice Scarf or not-and have resistances to its moves have a good chance at striking back for a lot of damage, if not a One-Hit KO.
