Return/Earthquake/Fire Blast/Shadow Ball@Choice Band and Adamant

Slaking used substitute!
Pokemon used attack!
The sub took damage.
If it broke and you stay in: Pokemon used attack and slaking was damaged.
If not: Pokemon used attack and broke the sub!
Slaking used focus punch and pokemon used attack and slaking's attack failed.

It wouldn't have time to subpunch.

Substiute and yawn do not work with choice band and subpunching slaking is almsot as stupid as subflailing slaking. Use CBslaking posted by me.

i don't know about that becasue i heard from many of my friends that hyper beam on slacking sucks
I could work, But focus Punch>>>Hyer beam on Slaking.
Hyper beam works because it ability will prevent it from moving on the next turn anyway :\.

i don't lose
the problem with hyper beam is that the turn that you would be loafing around is a forced stay in if you used hyper beam, whereas if you used return, you could anticipate the attack the opponent would use and switch to a resistant type. that's why return is suggested over hyper beam... with max happiness the power is 102, and with stab the power is 154, which is still a damn good attack, and with choice band, it's 231 i believe, so not a bad attack. hyper beam would be 150, with stab it's 225, and with the choice band it's 338.5. obviously the advantage looks nice, but say they switch to something resistant, say an aggron with focus punch, now you're facing a very beefy focus punch. all in all, the difference looks appealing to use hyper beam, but it pays off to use return.

Thats why i said Focus Punch>>>Hyper Beam.
Oh yeah BTW, If you use Hyper Beam you are unable to switch out.

Hope I helped!
 
Due to the ability of Slaking, it's best to have Hyper Beam like everyone else, also moves that keep the pokemon imobile is something good depends to the pokemon's ability/effect. If it can learn dark type moves, Crunch is alright. Also, people need to know that it's good to have a pokemon with a variety/selection of different types of movesets. Also due to the ability, leftovers is a good coverage to heal and not being to attack at the same time. In general, have moves suitable for the pokemon, Slaking.

Slaking used focus punch and pokemon sued attack and slaking's attack failed.

Actually:
Slaking used Substitute!
Poke used Attack
Slaking's sub took the damage.
The sub faded
Slaking is tightening its focus
Foe does whatever
Slaking is loafing around

Yes, Truant will bite you.


Use Tazzler's/Shiny Mewtwo's set there. Slaking does not have a variety of options anyway for me to post a new set

Lol CB with sub and Yawn
 
Ezra, please shut up if you dont have anything useful to say. try suggesting instead of loling.

Slaking is best used as a hit and run choice bander, i prefer;

@CB
Adamant/Jolly
252Attack/Speed/6HP
Return/Body Slam
Shadowball
Earthquake
Fireblast/Thunder/Focus Punch/Brick Break/Aerial Ace

Last slot in order of preference, i prefer fire blast, but thunder can work. Just remember to switch after an attack if you anticipate something dangerous, so truant doesnt bite you in the ***.
