Characteristics

Mareep are said to build up a stockpile of static electricity by rubbing the fluffy woolen fleece on their body, with that of other Mareep. The electricity is then stored in their fleece, and will shock predators on contact. The more electricity that is stored, the brighter the ball on the tip of a Mareep's tail is thought to glow. In summer, the fleece is fully shed, but would grow back within a week. Mareep also are thought to store air in the fleece, enabling it to control its body temperature whatever the weather.[6] Static electricity is a class of phenomena involving the net charge present on an object; typically referring to charged object with voltages of sufficient magnitude to produce visible attraction, repulsion, and sparks. ...

As Mareep are Electric-type, their attacks are particularly effective against Water- and Flying-type Pokémon, but Ground-types are particularly effective against it. Electric-, Flying- and Steel-types do little damage to Mareep, and Mareep do little damage to other Electric-types. All other types have no particular advantage over Mareep.[12] Mareep statistics are generally poor all round, but they have the ability to undergo evolution,[13] a metamorphic change within a Pokémon caused by gaining experience in battle,[14] twice. They evolve into their Stage-1 (middle) form, Flaaffy, at level 15, and then into Ampharos, their Stage-2 (final) form, at level 30.[13] Each time a Mareep evolves, its stats improve,[15][16] making the problem less relevant. // Pokémon types are special attributes which determine the strengths and weaknesses of different Pokémon species. ... // Pokémon types are special attributes which determine the strengths and weaknesses of different Pokémon species. ... // Pokémon types are special attributes which determine the strengths and weaknesses of different Pokémon species. ... // Pokémon types are special attributes which determine the strengths and weaknesses of different Pokémon species. ... // Pokémon types are special attributes which determine the strengths and weaknesses of different Pokémon species. ...

Pokemon Crystal Pokémon of the Day: Mareep (#179) - IGN FAQs (900 words)
Mareep and its evolutions are pitifully slow for Electric types, though, which has spurred a few trainers to look elsewhere for all their electrocuting needs.
Mareep faces the same problem that plagues most other Electric types, and that is extremely limited move versatility.
This Mareep is a pseudo-passer, meaning it uses stat-guarding moves that remain in place after the casting Pokemon switches out (i.e., passing on beneficial moves to its team mates a la Baton Pass, only without the actual Baton Pass move).
