    So this is my monotype electric team that i use on Pokemon Showdown. It does pretty well and is good at lattering, but I'm wondering if there is anything I can do to improve it.

    Raichu @ Air Balloon
    Ability: Lightning Rod
    EVs: 4 Atk / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
    Hasty Nature
    - Nuzzle
    - Sweet Kiss
    - Electro Ball
    - Focus Blast

    The strategy here is to paralyze the opponet and get a 120-150 power Electro Ball. I can also use Sweet Kiss to give them a lower chance of being able to attack and Focus Blast for coverage, mainly Steel types.

    Magnezone @ Leftovers
    Ability: Magnet Pull
    EVs: 248 HP / 252 SpA / 8 SpD
    Modest Nature
    IVs: 0 Atk / 30 SpA / 30 Spe
    - Hidden Power [Fire]
    - Flash Cannon
    - Substitute
    - Thunderbolt

    AKA my Scizor killer. Used to lure in Steel types and trap them with magnet pull, and then use HP Fire. I can also substitute and have Flash Cannon and Tbolt for SpA.

    Zapdos @ Leftovers
    Ability: Pressure
    EVs: 252 HP / 4 SpA / 252 SpD
    Calm Nature
    IVs: 0 Atk
    - Thunderbolt
    - Heat Wave
    - Roost
    - Toxic

    This is sort of a wall, as it has a lot of resistances. Heat Wave is for Steel types and is capable of Roost+Toxic stalling. This is the main pokemon I was thinking of switching out, but don't know what to change it with.

    Galvantula @ Life Orb
    Ability: Compound Eyes
    EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
    Timid Nature
    IVs: 0 Atk
    - Thunder
    - Bug Buzz
    - Sticky Web
    - Energy Ball

    Also one I send out first depending on what type I am facing. Normally you see Focus Sashes on Galvantulas, but Galv is capable of outspeeding many Pokemon anyway. Sometimes I dont even use Sticky Web and just go for a sweep.

    Rotom-Wash @ Leftovers
    Ability: Levitate
    EVs: 252 HP / 4 SpA / 252 SpD
    Calm Nature
    IVs: 0 Atk
    - Will-O-Wisp
    - Hydro Pump
    - Volt Switch
    - Pain Split

    Another wall. Basic troll set.

    Manectric @ Manectite
    Ability: Lightning Rod
    EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
    Timid Nature
    IVs: 0 Atk / 30 Def
    - Volt Switch
    - Thunderbolt
    - Hidden Power [Ice]
    - Flamethrower

    My main sweeper. I usually try to Mega Evolve it as early as I can so I can get Intimidate off on the opponet as much as possible. I put Flamethrower over Overheat as to not lower my SpA, and HP Ice is for coverage and can troll Garchomp if they arent expecting it.

    So thats my team, any thoughts?
