M Manectric-EX's Turbo Bolt attack dealt damage while attaching two basic energy cards from the discard pile to the player's benched Pokémon. This attack could knock out any Pokémon without healing support or damage reduction in two attacks and offered a hit-and-run strategy, where a M Manectric-EX would power up another benched M Manectric, retreat when badly damaged (notably, M Manectric had no retreat cost) and prevent the opponent from taking prize cards that turn if it could not play Lysandre. Its basic stage, Manectric-EX, could also punish opposing Pokémon with attached tool cards, being sometimes a reliable attacker without needing to evolve. Because the Turbo Bolt attack cost was relatively cheap, the deck could fit secondary non- attackers to benefit from the energy attachment effect, such as in Josh Fernando's M Manectric-EX/Terrakion variant in Worlds 2015.
M Manectric-EX - M Manectric-EX Turbo Bolt attack dealt 110 damage while attaching two basic energy cards to a benched Pokémon, usually another M Manectric-EX. As a Pokémon, it had a favorable matchup against Pokémon weak to this type such as Yveltal-EX.
Rough Seas - Discarded other Stadium cards and healed 30 damage from the player's and Pokémon per turn, allowing the Pokémon to survive more attacks.
Professor Juniper and Ultra Ball - Staple Trainers that could purposely discard energies from the hand during the first turns and benefit from Turbo Bolt.
