i think people dont use them just because of their rather horrible speed

Leftovers Careful
Moveset EVs
~ Coil
~ Wild Charge
~ Substitute / Brick Break
~ Dragon Tail / Dragon Claw
252 HP / 4 Atk / 252 SpD
This set takes a very different approach to offensive Eelektross, one which takes into account its high Attack stat, good defensive ability, and access to boosting moves. Coil is a powerful move that boosts Attack, Defense, and accuracy by one stage each, turning Eelektross into a slow-moving tank with the potential to thoroughly irritate any team that can't quite hit it hard enough.

Wild Charge is Eelektross's STAB attack of choice, the fact that it is pretty much Eelektross's only worthwhile physical STAB move notwithstanding. The recoil may hurt it somewhat, but in the interests of power conservation, it is recommended that you do not try to replace it. Substitute is a move that Eelektross can make great use of, stopping your opponent from using secondary attacks—such as Toxic, Will-O-Wisp, or Leech Seed—to cripple Eelektross. In the last slot, Dragon Tail is a useful move, which is rather like Acid Spray in that it is used not for its power but for its secondary effect. It allows Eelektross to pseudo-haze other Pokemon, which is useful both for preventing Eelektross from being forced out by Whirlwind or Roar and for racking up entry hazard damage on foes such as Ferrothorn and Hippowdon. In addition, it provides almost perfect neutral coverage with Wild Charge.

~ Acid Spray
~ Thunderbolt
~ Flamethrower
~ Grass Knot / Hidden Power Ice
252 HP / 252 SpA / 4 SpD
Acid Spray is one of the moves that Eelektross gets that other Electric-types do not, which is an immense benefit to using it. In essence, Acid Spray is a 40 Base Power Poison-type attack; however, it is for its secondary effect that it is so prized. It will always lower the opponent's Special Defense stat by two stages, essentially doubling Eelektross's Special Attack. When combined with Eelektross's wide special movepool, this makes for a very effective strategy.

Thunderbolt is Eelektross's main STAB attack, and will maim just about everything it touches after an Acid Spray. Flamethrower destroys bulky Grass- and Steel-types, particularly Ferrothorn, and Grass Knot deals with Ground-types. Hidden Power Ice is a usable alternative if you are worried about losing coverage on Dragon-types, particularly Haxorus, who is a big threat to you otherwise. However, it has fairly redundant coverage with Flamethrower and Thunderbolt, and this combined with its relatively low Base Power tends to make it not worth using.
