Offensive Moves Explanation
  • Magneton’s best fast move is Spark, followed by Thunder Shock and Charge Beam.

  • Discharge’s increased flexibility and higher energy efficiency put it over Zap Cannon.

  • Magnet Bomb is superior to Flash Cannon, though neither synergize with Magneton’s fast moves.

Defensive Moves Explanation
  • Charge Beam is the best fast move on defense due to higher DPS and energy gain.

  • Discharge and Magnet Bomb require low enough energy to be reliably used on defense, although they are easy to dodge.

  • Zap Cannon and Flash Cannon do not work well with Magneton’s awful durability.

Rating Explanation

Magneton has a nifty typing with 12 resistances that sadly cannot compensate for its bad defensive stats. It can function as an Electric-type attacker, with high Atk and passable moves, but Magneton will more likely be sitting on the bench, waiting for Gen 4 to roll around so that it can evolve and fix its problems.
