Magmortar Advice


Okay, so I'm setting up my Modest Magmortar to be a special sweeper. I'm new to competitive battling in these games as I never saw the point in making the effort before, but now I'm going to try. Here's my intended moveset:

Sunny Day

I'm not too sure how I would distribute the EVs, I'm assuming it would be to Special Attack, HP, and Speed? Item help would also appreciated.

I have no idea if this is overused or completely stupid, so don't be afraid to be truthful.

It looks pretty decent im not sure about EVS im no expert but your covering up almost if not all your weaknesses :)


Bona fide Narutard.
This new metagame is brutal- even spending one turn setting up Sunny Day could mean the end of you. Especially when you have low defense, and Stone Edge/Earthquake being as common as they are. So, use something that lets you set up, or just go with all attacking moves.

Notice this. In everyone's team, you either have sweepers, walls, or support. That's it. There are no pokemon taking their precious time to set up anything. Kill or be killed.
