But now that they are available on showdown I can finally throw together this strategy I came up with a while back when I first stumbled onto Ion Deluge. Electivire - the lesser half of my opening strategy, Ion Deluge electrifies all normal type attacks, causing them to become electric-type. I chose Discharge over a physical STAB despite also having manectric because the team is built to take the hit one way or another - either being immune to it or simply capable of taking the hit. Ice hits ground types and Earthquake will take care of many opposing electric types. Lilligant - the greater half of my opening strategy, Teeter Dance hits all adjacent pokemon and confuses the entire field in Lilligant's position... but with Ion Deluge tacked on, Electivire instead boosts in speed and Manectric has the potential to boost in special attack. I had originally thought ground types would be immune to the effect much like Thunder Wave, but that isn't the case as it turns out. Other moves exist just to help support the team - Giga Drain being able to cover the water/ground that Electivire can't itself. Ninetales - The sunlight provided Ensures Liligant's speed and also provides me something of an indirect defense against other heavily electric teams, since they will often have an important core in Rain Dance. That aside, Ninetales is just a supporting attacker. Manectric - Very much appreciates the boost to special attack in the event I can safely swap Ninetales for Manectric during the opening turn when I use Teeter Dance. That aside, Manectric appreciates sunlight more than probably any other electric type [Eelektross and Heliolisk are up for debate] giving it a boost to flamethrower and Flame Burst. Gastrodon - Chosen for Storm Drain as well as its immunity to Discharge. It coincidentally resists the ever present Rock Slide. Flygon - again, immune to discharge as well as Earthquake this time around and provides some nice coverage as well as a usually sun-boosted Heat Wave. Its speed stat is lowered so that it can U-turn just behind Electivire in the absence of a speed boost on 'vire, though I'm considering changing this. I know outright that Vileplume is an option over Lilligant, but the two fulfill their role almost identically with only slightly different typing. Vileplume's superior bulk is offset by lower speed.
