PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

So I was looking at Eelektross and I was thinking that this Pokémon looks quite OP because of its typing and it's ability and than it learns a decent amount of special attacking moves which I do like... but I do have one problem for a special attacking Eelektross... How should I ev train the Eelektross?

My idea for Eelektross:

Moveset - Charge beam, Flamethrower, grass knot, Acid spray/wild charge
Nature - Modest/Timid
Ability - Levitate
Item - Leftovers
Ev's - 128 sp.atk, 128 speed, 190 Sp.def, 70 Hp

do you mean what evs you want to train your Eelektross?
Which game are you using?
@BowlingMaster I think so?
@Celestial★Hurricane I ask this question for overall in any game.

I am at showdown currently trying to figure out some good places to put some Ev's in.
Which format?
If you're using it in RU in Generation 6, or NU in Generation 5 or 7, give it 252 HP/4 Def/252 SpA modest. If you're using it in any other format, stop using it.

First, if you're using Eelektross in any tier higher than RU, stop using it. Better volt switchers: Alolan Raichu, Zapdos, Raikou, mega Manectric, Magnezone, wash Rotom, heat Rotom, Galvantula, both Thundurus forms, Xurkitree
If you're using it in a format where Eelektross is actually good, give it 252 HP/252 SpA/4 SpD modest. The max special attack is for obvious reasons. Its speed is really low, so putting EVs in it won't do much good. If you distribute the remaining EVs among both defenses, they go up by 1.16 times, which means Eelektross will take 1.16 times as many hits. If you use the remaining EVs to max HP, its HP will go up 1.20 times, which means Eelektross will take 1.20 times as many hits. It's a small difference, but it's still better to invest in HP.
