My jolteon has Thunder Bolt as a charge move.

My Jolteon has Discharge as his charge move. It's not even on the list.

My Jolteon has Discharge as a Charge move, too.

Anonymous said...

Is Discharge weaker than the other thunder moves?

Anonymous said...

I believe they just copy-pasted some moves from a pokedex page cause the moves they list are most often than not on the pokemon i have...

Thundershock for standard, and thunderbolt for charge. Very disappointed at this moveset. XD

Thunderbolt is a Jolteon charge move. It does 50 damage.

Anonymous said...

My Jolteon has Thunder Shock as a quick move, dealing only five freaking damage. Charge is one long bar? Still trYong to figure out charge moves. It's Thunder with a whopping 65.

Does the high power charge make it worth it?

Unknown said...

My, Jolteon has Thunder Bolt as a charge too. Also, Im wondering why they don't include the damage skills have. It's the best guide i found online but feel like they can do better.

Amyless said...

My jolteon got only 85HP while trainer is 22lv and vaporeon got nearly double hp in it stsndard or just got some xs version of this pokemon?Tnx for answers

Anonymous said...

It is standard cause jolteon is a fast Pokémon for attack while vaporeon is more defensive (though overall better than jolteon)

Jolteon is the water killer for gyms, but you can't leave him at a gym because any ground type within about 300 CP below him wipes the floor with him. The Eevee Rock Paper Scissors game is fun, but for attacking, Jolteon is the best IMO.

Vaporeon easily beat Jolteon even with type disadvantage... Fast move's attack 20 vs 5! Ridiculous!

Anonymous said...

Vaporeon's fast attack does 10 damage every 0.5 seconds. Jolteon's fast attack does 5 damage every 0.6 seconds. Head to head jolteon would do 16.7 DPS and vaporeon would do 20 DPS, factoring in the type differences. Vaporeon has higher HP and better damage over jolteon, even with a type disadvantage. The only reason I can think of to use the weaker, faster, jolteon over vaporeon is if you plan on getting really good at dodging.

Lets consider the output damage.
Every 8 thundershock you're able to do a thunderbolt and every 15 thundershock you're able to do a thunder.
Basically with thunderboalt you deal 5*8+55=95 damage in (0,6*8+2,7)=7,5 secs
With thunder you deal 75+100=175 in (0,6*15+4,3)=13,3 secs

the dps with thunderbolt is 95/7,5=12,67 dps
the dps with thunder is 13,16 dps

So the thunder should be better when the time of game is long, but you may wont reach the thunder in a game because it needs 100 energy and it doesn't allow you to avoid enemy attacks for 4,3 sec (jolteon is very weak)

I pref the thunderbolt variant

Anonymous said...

I crunched the numbers and thunderbolt is definitely better than thunder when you factor in the energy needed to charge them. I just saw that the comment above me shows the math so I will refrain from putting it down myself. Long story short, because it takes so long to power up thunder, thunderbolt is better even though the ratio of thunderbolt's power versus its animation time is lower.

Its perfect to take down Gyarados. He has no chance.

Anonymous said...

Jolteon is the most useful attack Pokemon in the game now that most gyms have Gyarados, Vaporeon, and Lapras.

I love my Jolteons! By far my most used gym attacker. With Thunder definitely my favaorite.

Just got a really high eevee with great IV stats that went Jolteon. Was so happy. Looked at the moves to see what it had.
I really hate how the game trolls the crap out of you sometimes.

I just evolved a jolteon with the fast move "volt switch"

I don't see why people are complaining about Discharge.
Gen 2 came with a huge buff to the attack, making it actually slightly better than Thunder.

Consider the move set Thunder Shock/Discharge, so both with STAB.
Charging up for 3 Discharges plus 3 cooldowns takes 15.3 seconds (13x0.6 + 3x2.5), total dmg 325 (13x5x1.25 + 3x65x1.25), making it 21.24 dps.

Likewise, for 2 Thunderbolts it takes 12.8 seconds to do 281.25 dmg, so 21.97 dps.
Thunder does 206.25 dmg in 10.2 seconds, so that's only 20.22 dps.

Polishgames90 said...

So Thunderbolt is better than Thunder beacuse more damage have 2 thunderbolts than 1 Thunder (for 100 energy)

Historymike said...

Love me some Jolteons. I keep a small army of 2200-2500 Jolteons for attacking. One of the best values for powering up, too!

My Jolteon has thunder shock and thunder

I'm the same guy from February 9th, responding to ferdi_co.
I wrote that comment before Gen 2 dropped. Now that it has, that Jolteon is one of my favorite attackers. Discharge is so much better than thunder now. Not only the straight DPS being better, but with the numbers of the hits from discharged being smaller, you waste less potential damage. For example, if you use Thunder on an opponent that only has half the hp left of what thunder does to it, you just wasted damage by overkill. The only downside of discharge now is that it exposes you more often to moments where you can't dodge. Just have to be careful with that is all, though.

Thunder is better hands down. I have a jolteon with each of the special attacks and the strongest one I have is a 32.21 kg thunder attacking jolteon
