Elekid @ Air Balloon
Ability: Static
Level: 5
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
- Volt Switch
- Substitute
- Psychic
- Toxic

Elekid's only weaknesses are ground types. Using air balloon for this can be helpful. Elekid's ability static helpful too for paralyzing the target. Volt Switch is a good move to use when you have more than one Pokémon. Substitute is a tactical move which protects elekid from attacks. Psychic is a coverage special move which deals good damage. Toxic is a good move too if you can use it in a certain time.

I haven't actually tested but I find it very difficult to believe that that EV spread is viable in LC.
The max for Special Attack and Speed for Elekid is 240 and 236 respectively.

I am surprised no one is taking advantage of that 95 base Speed.

Elekid @ Life Orb
Vital Spirit ability
240 SpA/236 Spd
Timid Nature

-Volt Switch
- Round/Uproar/Thunder Wave

This set takes full advantage of Elekid's base 95 for sweeping capabilities. These moves are STAB, coverage and the ability to switch out, but man, this things movepool is trash. Round is coverage. Uproar if you want to be daring, but I wouldn't recommend it. Thunder Wave is simple utility. I would go Round.

Elekid @ Life Orb
Ability: Vital Spirit
Level: 5
EVs: 252 Spe / 92 Atk / 156 SpA
Naive Nature

  • Thunderbolt
  • Psychic
  • Ice Punch
  • Fire Punch / Cross Chop

If it had Flamethrower I could've made a full special set, guess not... Anyway, Thunderbolt is STAB, Psychic is coverage, Ice Punch hits Ground types super effectively, Fire Punch is good coverage while Cross Chop is stronger but less accurate.

why psychic
Psychic is mostly a filler move but it still hits some prominent LC Pokemon
236 is the max speed Elekid can have. For the attacking stats, it is best to go 92 Atk/156 SpA or 172 Atk/76 SpA
Ok, thanks!
