The Electric type is one of the eighteen types. Prior to changes in Generation IV, all damaging Electric-type moves were special, but they may now also be physical depending on the attack.
Electric is tied with the Normal type for having the fewest weaknesses. Because of their single weakness to Ground, it is possible for pure Electric-type Pokémon to have no weaknesses by becoming airborne through having the Ability Levitate (for example, Eelektross), the held item Air Balloon, or being under the effect of Magnet Rise or Telekinesis. As of Generation VI, Electric-type Pokémon are immune to paralysis.
The Electric type pairs well with other common attacking types, especially Ice because it is super-effective against Ground (which Electric has no effect on), as well as the Electric-resistant Grass and Dragon.
When Electric Terrain is in effect, the power of Electric-type moves is increased by 30% (50% prior to Generation VIII) if the user is on the ground. When Mud Sport is in effect, the power of Electric-type moves used on Pokémon affected by Mud Sport is decreased by 50%. All Normal moves become Electric moves when affected by Ion Deluge or Plasma Fists, and all of a Pokémon's moves become Electric moves when that Pokémon is affected by Electrify.
