I have a Manectric in Pokémon Sword and was wondering if Lightning Rod would be better or worse than its current ability Static.
my manectric’s move set:
Psychic fangs
Iron tail

And yes, this is for competitive play(I haven’t figured out the rest of my team but this is for doubles)

Is this just for your playthrough, or are you playing competitively?
Playthrough or competitive? If competitive,  which format?
can you give the moveset of your manetric

Lightning rod (in my opinion) is better, because you can bait out an electric move and switch a lightning rod Pokemon to raise their stats.
Static is still useful because paralysis is useful, too.
