 Game Information
 Original Games
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.
 Spin-off Games
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.
 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.
 Anime/Manga Information
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.
An Electrike also evolved into a Manectric in the episode The Electrike Company.
Manectric's Manga info is unknown at this time.
 Pokémon Information
 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.
