Electrode is an Electric Pokémon which evolves from Voltorb. It is vulnerable to Ground moves. Electrode's strongest moveset is Volt Switch & Thunderbolt and it has a Max CP of 2,099.
"Electrode eats electricity in the atmosphere. On days when lightning strikes, you can see this Pokémon exploding all over the place from eating too much electricity."
Volt Switch has been buffed to 3.5 DPT (Damage per Turn) and 4 EPT (Energy Per Turn). Discharge (65 Power/45 Energy) charges quickly thanks to it, and allows Electrode to throw out fair amounts of damage quickly. Thunderbolt (90 Power/55 Energy) is a bit slower, but provides higher damage-per-energy by comparison, and is a better general choice when shields are down.
Foul Play is Electrode's best coverage move, and can have some use depending on the format.
Electrode has found a better niche with Volt Switch, coupled with Foul Play as unique coverage for an Electric-type. It's not the best of them by any means, but it can work in restricted formats such as Silph Cups.
2099 CP is not enough to compete here.
You'd probably be better off using something that the opponent's Pokemon directly counters than a Super Effective damaging Electrode in the Master League.
