These Pokémon either has type advantage against Combat or moves that are Super Effective against Combat. However, like the other types in the game, you need to know the different Electric Pokémon strength and weakness.
In terms of stats, the Electric-types have their HP, Attack, and Defense near the bottom of the list ranking around 14 and 15 overall. Pure Electric Pokémon strength and weakness can be the same; however, those that have secondary types can be a good or bad thing.
It doesn’t matter if the Electric-type is the primary or secondary type because the game mixes and matches strengths and weaknesses. This means that by having a secondary type will also give the Electric-type those added weaknesses.
Here is a couple of notable dual-type Electric Pokémon that can be good and bad. The good thing about having Electric as a secondary type is that it can attack the Normal or Ghost-type.
That means you get more damage if your Electric Pokémon has either Fire, Rock, Steel, or Poison as a secondary type. Naturally, in the water areas, you need to have an Electric-type at the front to easily eliminate Water-type Pokémon.
Don’t use them in the front when you’re in areas that are caves because most of the enemies would be Ground and Rock-types. There are also those that have an Electric-type whose sole purpose is to cause a Paralyze status and then just set them back.
Also, avoid putting an Electric-type against a Fighting and Dragon-type because these types have high Attack and the Electric-type has low Defence, so they may get knocked out quickly.
