Personality and characteristics
Natural of its species, Electivire was aggressive, brutish and nasty from its debut as an Elekid, reflecting Paul's own attitude. In ''[[DP050|Tag! We're It...!]]''; when {{AP|Pikachu}} approached and greeted it, Elekid falsely appeared to greet him back, only to hit Pikachu once he turned away, an example of Elekid being nasty for the sake of being nasty. Like Paul, it hates to appear weak and if ever helped, it would clean the slate but still be annoyed that it was helped. Despite the harsh training it undergoes with Paul, Electivire always seems to be happy battling, and unlike some of his comrades, it never shows any resentment to Paul; {{TP|Paul|Torterra}} would help others out of kindness and {{TP|Paul|Honchkrow}} would takes Paul's harsh words to heart.

During Electivire's debut as an Elekid, it had the ability to absorb Electric-type moves without suffering any damage and then use the electricity for power. This was shown during Ash's first battle with Paul, when Paul wanted Ash to go first.
