Pachirisu will actually have a decent attack to use. Electivire will get a good "special attack" while running a physical set. Agility/Motor Drive Emolga will be quite threatening with it and Baton Pass
As much as I love Electrode, 300 or 400 Sp. Atk. on it without setting up is a bad idea.
Edit: Wait, I think I understand this now. It does kind of make sense from a flavour point of view (never understood Electrode being able to learn moves based on thunderstorms in the first place). Electro Ball could be kind of a signature move. Sort of.
