I don't have a problem with Electivire losing to 10M Volt Thunderbolt. It would have been annoying if they pretended Motor Drive didn't exist, but that's not what happened. Volkner specifically ordered Electivire to absorb the attack with Motor Drive, which it did, but then fainted when it couldn't contain all the energy. It's perfectly believable that there is a cap to the amount of electricity that can be absorbed before it actively harms the Pokemon, and there's even a precedent of Pikachu (and Pachirisu) getting physically ill from doing just that. It breaks game rules, but I'll buy it in the anime.
