>HP: 260 - 354
Attack: 225 - 379
Defense: 125 - 256
Special Attack: 175 - 317
Special Defense: 157 - 295
Speed: 175 - 317
Total: 540

Electivire clearly has better stats at first sight, reaching 540 while Eelektross reaches 515. Eelektross sports a better HP, but only by twenty points. Electivire slightly wins out by about ten points in the area of attack, but loses by thirty in Defense. Eelektross's Special Attack wins out, roughly fifteen points while Electivire wins in Special Defense with ten points. Although Speed is where Electivire shines ahead of Eelektross. It's speed reaches a hundred points higher.


Both are electric types, having the same weaknesses and strengths. Not much to discuss here except that they'll both be crippled by Earthquake...


Levitate for Eelektross and Motor Drive and Vital Spirit for Electivire. I say Eelektross wins out in the Ability area as Levitate lets it overcome it's only weakness, ground. Eelektross so far is a better choice, except for it's speed crippling it.


Just kidding, just kidding!



What movepool? But seriously, it can learn quite enough STAB moves and other powerful ones, a few examples being Discharge, Dragon Claw, Thunderbolt, Flamethrower, Acrobatics, Rock Slide, Dragon Tail, Flash Cannon, Giga Drain, Iron Tail, Aqua Tail and Superpower.


He has a majority of electric and fighting moves in his set, but good moves include Fire Punch, ThunderPunch, Discharge, Thunderbolt, Earthquake, Dig, Psychic, Brick Break, Flamethrower, Rock Slide, Cross Chop, DynamicPunch, Hammer Arm, Ice Punch, Iron Tail, Signal Beam and all those are pretty good!
I guess I would pick Eelektross.

Depends what you want in a Pokemon. Do you want no weaknesses or Effective speed and attack. And considering that moldbreaker gets rid of levitate giving Elektross back it's weakness. [Electirvire stats and moves][1] [Elektross stats and moves][2]

Electivire is a load faster than elektross and has a Higher Sp.Def and attack. Elektross beats Electirvire on the other hand has better Hp, Defense and Sp. Attack.

Moves I can't really say what is the best choice as I don't govern what you will pick. But I reckon Electivire is better, if only for the better speed. keep In mind Electivire gets faster if hit by another electric move with It's motor drive ability.

Well, I would say that eelektross is better because of the wide range of move tutors it learns in BW2.Electivire too is a good Pokemon, but eelektross has a balanced Stats which can survive many hard attacking moves.So yeah,eelektross is better.Dont ever see the pokemn by stats.Its about the moves it learns and whether it's stats is balanced or not.

PS:Eelektross has levitate as ability!!
