I'd get Zebstrika, myself. It's a fast Pokemon that would balance the range of Speed stats on your team, and also provides that nice Fire-type coverage in Flame Charge.

It can have the ability Motor Drive to absorb Electric-type attacks and raise Speed, or Sap Sipper to switch in on Grass moves to receive an Attack boost, making it great for switching around on a team.

Emolga's got a sweet typing, but there are next to NO Ground-type attacks in the game after you beat Driftveil's gym, so it's not like Emolga's Flying-typing is doing it any justice, really, except for a Fighting resistance.

Emolga because hes immune to ground moves which is awesome against ground type pokemon. Discharge, Double Team, Poison, and Airial Ace.

I never knew there was a move named Poison :P
do you mean toxic ?
I'm laughing right now as I type because of trachy's comment.

Personally, I'd reccomend neither -- Elektross's Leveitate ability negates ground moves just like Emogla's flying type does. Yes, that can be overcome with Gravity, Smack Down, etc, but if your opponent doesn't have those you have no type weaknesses.

You mean smack down?
Yes...  it was 3 in the morning >.>  Editing that...
But there are people that have mold breaker, so I suggest Emolga anyway, it has great speed and has the moves to get out of the battle when needed.

I'd say emolga, but if you can get your hands on a joltik/galvantula (chargestone cave) those are beast

zebstrika, it has a good speed and better attack than emolga, and emolga have 2 weakness but zebstrika only have 1 weakness. but i recommend you to have elektross rather than emolga or zebstrika.

Personally, I would choose Emolga. With the motor drive ability, Emolga has 2 weaknesses, 5 resistances and electric and ground have no effect. Volt switch is a good move to have so when Emolga is on low hp, it can use volt switch and with emolga's speed you should go first. If your worried that the opponent was faster, some hyper training/ IVs on it's speed stat might help. It might seem boring, but using Toxic on the first turn will badly poison it and give your opponents a hard time.

The last two move slots should be filled wwith Thunderbolt/Discharge and Ariel ace ( or acrobatics if you dont wanna give your Emolga an item).

Moves: Volt Switch, Toxic, Thunderbolt/Discharge and Ariel Ace/Acrobatics.
