Wattson's Manectric was Wattson's main Pokemon.
Manectric first appeared in Watt's with Wattson? as an Electrike. It quickly grew attached to Wattson and helped comfort him after his effortless defeat at the hands of Ash's Pikachu. When Team Rocket tried to capture Mauville City's electric Pokemon, Electrike tried to bite through the bars of their cage. Wattson then decided to keep Electrike.
When Electrike next appeared in Manectric Charge, it helped fend off Team Rocket and evolved into Manectric. Manectric had clearly been through some training since Wattson captured it and was powerful enough to defeat Ash's Torkoal in battle.

- In the episode Manectric Charge, Wattson ordered Manectric to use Thunder Wave. However Thunder Wave is not meant to cause any damage to the opponents and therefore this is considered an error and it is assumed that Wattson meant to say Shock Wave. It should be noted however that Will-O-Wisp, which like Thunder Wave is a status move in the games, is not considered to be an offensive attack because in the games it burns the opponent rather than directly hurting them. However Will-O-Wisp is considered to be an offensive move in the anime so possibly Thunder Wave is considered to be a damaging move too.
