When battling other trainers in Pokémon Go, it’s important to know what Pokémon you can use against them. There are several to pick from, and each of them have unique stats and movesets. A Pokémon might have excellent stats, but when it has a poor moveset for attacks, you’ll likely find yourself failing to beat another player nearly every time. You have to consider your choices, especially with Pokémon like Eelektross, the fully evolved form of Tynamo.

Eelektross is an Electric-type Pokémon. It’s going to only be weak to Ground-type moves, but it’s resistant against Electric, Flying, and Steel-type moves. For PvP, it has a maximum CP of 2,732, an attack of 183, a defense of 131, and a stamina of 168. Because of its lower CP range, we recommend using it in the Ultra League competitions in Pokémon Go. It could be extremely favorable as several trainers find themselves using Flying or Water-types in these competitions.

These are all of the moves Eelektross can learn.

Fast moves

  • Acid (Poison-type) – 6 damage and 2.5 energy (3 damage per turn)
  • Spark (Electric-type) – 4 damage and 4 energy (2 damage per turn)

Charged moves

  • Acid Spray (Poison-type) – 20 damage and 50 energy (100% chance to lower an opponent’s defense by two ranks)
  • Crunch (Dark-type) – 70 damage and 45 energy
  • Dragon Claw (Dragon-type) – 50 damage and 35 energy
  • Thunderbolt (Electric-type) – 90 damage and 55 energy

For the fast move, you want to go with Spark. It’s going to give Eelektross more energy every time it uses it, meaning it can use its charged moves far more often. Acid, on the other hand, does slightly more damage, but provides nearly 1.5 points of energy less following each use. That’s a big difference, making sure spark will always come out on top.

With the charged move, you have a few choices. The first charged move you always want to teach Eelektross is Thunderbolt. It’s a low-energy attack that can deal plenty of damage to most opponents. You’ll be able to use it a few times during an encounter, and it doesn’t cost too much. Thunderbolt will also receive a same type attack bonus because Eelektross is an Electric-type.

The next move we recommend you teach Eelektross is Dragon Claw. It’s the lowest energy-charged move Eelektross can learn. While it doesn’t have a lot of power, you want to use this attack to bait an opponent’s shield, forcing them to use it, allowing you to use Thunderbolt later in the encounter. You might want to use Eelektross’ Dragon Claw to drain a trainer’s shields for your other Pokémon choices, but it’s typically a good choice.

Eelektross won’t be the best Pokémon, but with the correct moveset you can make it have an impact during any battle.

The best moveset for Eelektross is the fast move Spark and the charged moves Thunderbolt and Dragon Claw.
