  • 1265 – 1333 CP at Level 20, no weather boost
  • 1582- 1667 CP at Level 25 with Rainy weather boost

With a mono Electric typing, it is only weak to the Ground types. As such, its best counters include Pokémon like Garchomp, Landorus (Therian), Groudon, and Excadrill. For high-level trainers, Electabuzz is an easy solo. Trainers of lower levels can beat it if they go with a team of 2-3.
