Kilowattrel is one of the fastest Pokémon in Scarlet and Violet, with Speed of 125. Combined with Timid nature, that Speed goes even higher, and with the right moves, turns this Electric/Flying-type into a formidable opponent.
You can find Kilowattrel on the north, east, and west sea coast of Paldea or evolve it from Wattrel at level 25.
Best Kilowattrel Moves in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet
The moves that we listed here either rely on Kilowattrel’s high Speed stats or the power and/or accuracy of the move itself—here’s our selection:
- Electro Ball
- Hyper Beam
- Volt Switch
Kilowattrel learns this move by evolution, and its effectiveness leans heavily into this Pokémon’s speed. If your Kilowattrel is faster than your opponent, this move increases damage in proportion. Considering that Kilowattrel is one of the fastest Pokémon in Scarlet and Violet, this can be a significant advantage for you.
Thunderbolt (TM 126) has Power 90 and Accuracy 100 stats and comes with a 10% chance of paralyzing the opponent. You will be able to craft it after fighting the Team Star Fighting Crew.
Using Hyper Beam (TM 163) will leave you immobile in the next turn, but the power of its attack (Power 150 and Accuracy 90) can sometimes be enough for a one-punch-one-kill scenario. Get this TM move on the smaller island (in the group of two), close to the coast of the East Province.
Volt Switch is a move that Kilowattrel can learn by leveling up (at level 43) or with the help of a Technical Machine (TM 048) that you get after beating Iono in Levincia. Besides some solid damage (Power 70), this move will let you switch Kilowattrel with a waiting Pokémon and provide that useful pivot that might help you win.

In addition to these moves, we recommend that your Kilowattrel comes equipped with the Wind Power ability that will boost the damage of an Electric-type move that comes after being hit by a Wind move. You can also equip Wise Glasses to boost the special moves’ power.
