    I'm preparing for a tournament that allows the use of 10 pokemon (switching between battles), but I'm being indecisive about their movesets. I figured asking all of you for your input would do a lot to put my mind at ease.

    The pokemon I'm using and possible moves I'd like to give them are as follows:

    Smeargle
    -Confuse Ray
    -Thunder Wave
    -(trying to get) Spore (if I can't, perhaps Fake Out since he's a Technician)
    -Super Fang

    Zapdos
    -Thunder
    -Thunder Wave
    -Aerial Ace/Drill Peck
    -Light Screen/Sunny Day

    Blaziken
    -Overheat
    -Brave Bird
    -Solar Beam/Stone Edge
    -Sky Uppercut

    Sceptile
    -Leaf Blade/Solar Beam
    -Aerial Ace/Dragon Pulse
    -Sunny Day/Safeguard
    -Roar/X-Scissor/something else

    Spiritomb
    -Confuse Ray/Torment
    -Pursuit/Pain Split
    -Sucker Punch
    -Shadow Ball

    Scizor
    -X-Scissor/U-Turn
    -Roost
    -Iron Head/Night Slash
    -Swords Dance

    Swampert
    -Earthquake
    -Hydro Cannon
    -Ice Beam
    -Hammer Arm

    Blastoise
    -Haze
    -Mirror Coat/Counter
    -Rapid Spin
    -Ice Beam/Surf/Gyro Ball

    Blissey
    -Softboiled
    -Heal Bell/Seismic Toss
    -Counter/Substitute
    -Rock Slide (since his % is increased due to ability)/Fling

    Torterra
    -Earthquake
    -Leaf Storm/Solar Beam
    -Crunch/Curse/Stone Edge
    -Synthesis/Curse/Light Screen


    Any suggestions and criticism are welcome.

    Thanks. Didn't think of a couple of those.


    Anyone have some Zapdos/Sceptile suggestions? They're both oriented toward speed/sp att.

    Torterra doesn't NEED a grass type move.

    Torterra @ Leftovers
    Curse
    Leech Seed/ Synthesis/ Sub
    Stone Edge
    EQ

    is cool. Rock and Ground are an awesome attacking combo.

    A few more sets of a few Pkmn I remember seeing on your list.

    Swampert @ Leftovers
    Ice Beam
    Waterfall/ Hydro Pump/ Surf
    EQ
    Stealth Rock

    Spiritomb @ Leftovers
    Will o Wisp
    Calm Mind
    Dark Pulse
    Pain Split

    Sceptile @ Choice Specs
    Energy Ball
    Focus Bomb
    Leaf Storm
    Dragon Pulse

    I'm not recommending natures/EVs cuz by the looks of your formatting, you don't seem to care about them =/.

    BlacK_JacK LOL, Sup?

    It's not that I don't care, it's just that I already did them, and I don't have time to re-do them if I reconsider.

    Thanks for the help.

    I think two straight-up grass attacks with Sceptile may be somewhat redundant, since Leaf Storm is strong enough to do serious damage when needed, and then he can switch to a different (phys) attack if that doesn't cut it. And, given the rest of my team, do you feel Focus Blast would be better than a flying attack or Sunny Day move? I don't mean to insinuate that it was a poor suggestion - I find it quite interesting, I just have a lot of options open for this one.

    Sorry to bother, but I was just checking in.

    Particular questions:

    Would Zapdos be better off with Aerial Ace or Drill Peck?

    Would Smeargle be better off with Fake Out or Super Fang? Or perhaps replace Confuse Ray with one? (probably giving him Quick Claw)

    Is Counter on my Blissey worthwhile? Is it easy enough to predict when a phys attack is coming, especially when most opponents will expect some manner of counter on this pokemon?
