Special AbilitiesEdit

Electivire can use attacks that its pre-evolutions can use, except that Electivire's attacks will be more powerful. However, Electivire is also capable of knowing Flamethrower, Eathquake and Rock Slide. Electrical attacks are unable to do any damage to Electivire, but will instead increase its speed.

Electivire's special ability Motor Drive renders the foe's Electric attacks useless and just powers up the speed of Electivire, making it a formidible foe.



Electivire hide away in complex power plants. Some also live atop cliffs and mountains, while some nest in dark, dense forests.
