Pokémon Scarlet and Violet's Electric Gym Leader is the third stop in most players' Victory Road journey after the Grass Gym. Iono the streamer uses four Pokémon in total, with three of them at level 23, and her ace at level 24. Electric Type Pokémon only have one weakness, Ground Type attacks, but only two of her Pokémon can be hit by Ground Type moves. Before getting to the fight, there are lots of Ground Type Pokémon that can aid in the fight nearby, such as Diglett and Silicobra, but as long as trainers bring a Pokémon that isn't weak to Electric Types, they won't have much issue.

Iono's Pokémon include:

  • Lv 23 Wattrel - Electric/Flying Type with Pluck, Spark, and Quick Attack.
  • Lv 23 Bellibolt - Electric Type with Spark and Water Gun.
  • Lv 23 Luxio - Electric Type with Bite and Spark.
  • Lv 24 Mismagius - Ghost Type/Electric Tera Type with Charge Beam, Confuse Ray, and Hex.

With Pokémon of around the same level, players should be careful of Bellibolt, as its Ability Electromorphosis will increase its Electric Type moves after being hit. The Luxio can also be a detriment to physical attackers as its Ability Intimidate will decrease the Attack of any Pokémon it is sent out against by one stage. Both Wattrel and Mismagius cannot be hit by Ground Type attacks and require that players use any moves that aren't resisted. Avoiding the use of Electric, Flying, and Steel moves, players can hit these Pokémon with anything else they have.
