I have an Ampharos and a Manectric with those abilities and I wanted to know if they could power each other up.

Ups Sp. Atk if another Pokémon has Plus or Minus.

So yeah it would work

Though they both don't have Minus only Manectric does. Ampharos has Plus as it's Hidden Ability but the concept is still the same. Also in competitive terms Lightiningrod > Minus on Manectric and Static > Plus on Ampharos.

From Generation V onwards two Pokemon with Minus power-up each other's Sp. Atk.

Boosts the Sp. Atk stat if another Pokémon has Plus or Minus.

Hope I helped. :)
