I don't know which one to use, Vikavolt or Alolan Raichu, but if you have other suggestions that would be great!

Please include suggested movesets and pros and cons for each suggested Pokemon!

- Gigantic Special Attack stat
- Good typing gives it few weaknesses

Alolan Raichu

Go with Alolan Raichu.

Hope I helped!

lol you'd call 110 'blistering speed'? and 5% encounter rate 'fairly easy to obtain'? and blush mountain, only like, what, the fifth trial 'extremely long time to evolve'? I know I wouldn't but thank you for your answering
Yes, I would. That's base Speed, and 110 base Speed is astounding, even in-game where it doesn't matter as much. Blush Mountain is only an electrical field in USUM, and you're playing SM. You have to wait until Vast Poni Canyon to evolve Charjabug in SM. Pichu may have a 5% encounter rate, but it can be found in two of the earliest places you access, practically invalidating that.

In short, I stand by my reasoning.
huh. ok then
