Emolga is an Electric & Flying Pokémon. It is vulnerable to Rock and Ice moves. Emolga's strongest moveset is Thunder Shock & Thunderbolt and it has a Max CP of 1,633.
"As it flies, it scatters electricity around, so bird Pokémon keep their distance. That's why Emolga can keep all its food to itself."
Thunder Shock generates energy fast and benefits from STAB, though its damage output is still unremarkable. Quick Attack sports slightly better damage output but worse energy generation, and can't be Super Effective vs anything.
Discharge costs less energy than Thunderbolt which means it can be accessed sooner, though the latter threatens more damage if unshielded. Aerial Ace isn't a particularly good move, but provides different coverage and benefits from STAB.
Emolga shares identical typings with Zapdos, though Emolga's moveset is somewhat less efficient. Unimpressive bulk due to a moderately high ATK stat means this squirrel would appreciate shields to perform well, or at the very least match even shields against its opponent. While its Flying typing and access to Aerial Ace are valuable against Grass Pokemon, it may not necessarily secure wins against Pokemon with counter coverage. Losing the 1-shield matchup against the common Azumarill is also disappointing.
Emolga has a max CP of 1633, which is insufficient for battles outside of Great League.
It's cruel to send a squirrel to fight dragons and dinosaurs more than ten times its size.
