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.

Game Information

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.

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.

Pokémon Information

Competitive Battling

Manectric finds itself in the Neverused (NU) tier of competitive battling. With a solid Speed stat that allows for it to outspeed Jynx, Charizard, and Rotom, Manectric can function well as an offensive threat. Its access to Fire-type coverage in the form of either Overheat or Flamethrower and decent Special Attack stat allow for it to break through certain Electric-type counters like Steelix, Ferroseed, and Torterra. With Volt Switch, Manectric can whittle down at opposing Pokémon and gain the upper hand in momentum if it forces a switch. Lightning Rod is a handy ability that discourages opposing Volt Switch spam and gives Manectric a Special Attack boost when hit by an Electric-type move. However, Manectric faces competition from its Electric-type brethren, as Rotom is a better pivot thanks to its better set of resistances and Electivire boasts greater offensive versatility. It struggles to break through certain Pokémon like Lanturn, Piloswine, and Gastrodon, all of which can prevent Manectric from spamming its Electric attacks and can tank its coverage attacks. Manectric's bulk is rather poor, which leaves it vulnerable to being picked off by strong priority or faster attackers.

Manectric is also viable in the Rarelyused (RU) tier of competitive battling. Thanks to its access to strong Fire-type coverage in the form of Flamethrower or Overheat, Manectric can ensure that it can break through Pokémon that give other Electric-types trouble, such as Registeel, Venusaur, and Tangrowth. With Volt Switch, Manectric can nab momentum for the team and keep offensive pressure against opposing foes. Manectric also has a nice ability in Lightning Rod to allow it to switch into an Electric-type move and gain a boost in the process, which will make it even more threatening. Manectric can act as a nice Fletchinder check, as it resists Acrobatics and can knock it out with a Thunderbolt or Volt Switch, which gives it better utility on offensive teams that usually struggle against Fletchinder. However, Manectric's bulk is not very good and its Speed stat falls just short of certain significant threats like Virizion and Sneasel. It also faces competition from other Electric-types in Jolteon, Rotom-C, and Eelektross, which all have their own unique advantages over Manectric.
