Edit: Change Samurott Nature to Lonely. Change Samurott EVs to 74 Attack/ 178 Special Attack/ 252 HP and I replace Megahorn/X-Scissor with Aqua Jet for a good Speed Priority move.

Aqua Jet is good as a move since with STAB it hits 60 BP. 60 BP + Priority is nice. You're more likely to use Scald to Burn the opponent or beat Fire Types , so dump more EV's into Special Attack. Lonely helps fix the Attack EV's drop. And don't bother with Speed EV's ; Samurott has poor Speed anyway. Max HP for some Bulk.

Implying Emboar got anything useful through Move tutors. It got Fire/ThunderPunch(which have arguably better alternatives) and...Superpower without breeding? Anyway, the moveset is fine but Nitro Charge has been Flame Charge for 18 months now.


And no Flygon moveset. Wat.

Flygon @ Life Orb
• Levitate
• Jolly / Naive / Hasty
• 252 Atk / 252 Spe
- Dragon claw/Outrage
- Earthquake
- Fire Punch/Fire blast
- Roost/U-turn

Dragon move+Earthquake hits everyone for everything. I prefer Fire Blast since it's actually slightly more powerful than Fire Punch with a Life Orb but with any other item Fire Punch is stronger.
There's also Stone Edge, but a Fire move hits Ice types more accurately, deals with Steels who don't get KO'd by Earthquake and hits Bug and Grass types, who just so happen to also resist Earthquake as well.
The last slot honestly doesn't matter unless you actually use a Life Orb, because 3 attacks+recovery with a Life Orb is the sh*t. I use that kind of Flygon in competitive, and it just refuses to get KO'd.

I am surprised we don't have a moveset for this guy yet, since it feels like everyone and their mother is using this guy for BW2.

I was surprised since I post a similar moveset recently (nearly a month and a half) in the older thread...

And that's right, I'll use Flygon in BW2! It's my favourite Pokémon and appears in Unova Pokédex, so why not training one?

  • Galvantula gets Giga Drain via BW2 tutor, so use that>Energy Ball. May as well slap the Life Orb on it. Giga Drain could also be used as an alternative to HP[Ground] on Volcarona.
  • Stone Edge is a possibilty>Return on Gyara for those QuakeEdge users.
  • NP Honchkrow could slash in Superpower>HP Fighting for wallbreaking. Besides, Superpower isn't hindered by the rest of it's moveset too badly. It'd require a shift of EVs/Natures, but eh.
  • Lilligant still has Butterfly Dance as oppsoed to Quiver Dance.
  • Slash in Earthquake alongside Fire Punch on Miltank. Sure, you miss out of Levitating Steels, but there are so few and Earthquake also lets Miltank hit Rocks.
  • Starmie has 252Atk EVs as opposed to SATK EVs

Now, about Hidden Power. First off, the thread is using both 'HP Type' and 'Hidden Power [Type]' formats. This should be unified into a single format for consistancy's sake. But more importantly, I think that Hidden Power should be only used as an alternative. This is ingame, and most players won't have the patience or knowledge on breeding for Hidden Power which really defeats the point of listing sets that the average ingame player is able to use. It may just be me, but that's what I think.

I don't care much.

If I get access to BW2 I'll try to get them. But really with a Base Speed of 65 Hammer Arm will prove better imo.

Why not a MixedGon too?

Yes, this is a Special Flygon. Not the best set to use, but it's fun, so why not? x)
I'm questioning Specs. LO would be nicer but you'd slaughter yourself at the same time. DM might be better to help deal a little more damage. I say White Herb if you run DM though.

I think the format is fine as it is , but I don't have a Mac so I have to copy-paste like others.

Hmm, I looked at the index and didn't see anything for Lapras, so I might as well give it a shot.

It's a set that's best used only in rain. Dances circles around anything and everything that likes to run stall with status.

Lapras & Leftovers.

Jolly / Hydration

252 Att, 252 Spd, 4 HP

Waterfall
Ice Shard
Rest
Dragon Dance

This set is simple. Get rain set up with another Pokemon, and when they're either down or you think it's time to switch, bring in this thing. One D-Dance lets you outspeed plenty of things, so you can either Rest off the damage or start hammering away at the opposition.

Even though this thing can survive a harsh blow, it's never safe to bring it up against something that will deliver its own share of pain, unless you're confident of taking them out before you take them out.

A team based on this Lapras set netted me a peak of 1386 points on PO, before BW2 came out. I'm not certain if it's effective in the new metagame, but even so, it's great for anti-stall if rain is the dominant weather there.

I think that Dragonite could also use a Mixed set , think we need one.

Dragonite @ Life Orb
• Multiscale
• Naive
• 252 Speed / 178 Sp.Atk / 44 Atk / 36 HP
- Fire Blast
- Draco Meteor
- Roost
- Earthquake / Dragon Claw

So yeah. LO + healing is pretty standard. HP EV's provide you a little bulk. DM is STAB , Fire Blast hits Ice Types who can usually OHKO you. Earthquake hits Steel Types and provides a nifty combo with the other two moves.

Sorry for the delay, but I've finally updated the first post with all the movesets that have been posted here lately, and with some help from Shine all the sets have now been converted to the new format:

Pokemon @ Item
Ability
Nature
EVs
- Move 1
- Move 2
- Move 3
- Move 4

Furthermore, regarding Hidden Power:
- the format for Hidden Power will be Hidden Power [Type], not HP Type or HP [Type] or Hidden Power Type.

But more importantly, I think that Hidden Power should be only used as an alternative. This is ingame, and most players won't have the patience or knowledge on breeding for Hidden Power which really defeats the point of listing sets that the average ingame player is able to use. It may just be me, but that's what I think.
And I completely agree with this. So I've made a few changes here and there where Hidden Power was listed as a 'definite' move by slashing an alternative, and I'll be doing that for all of the sets where Hidden Power isn't listed as just an alternative, but please by all means help me out with that by giving me suggestions ^^

And we were also lacking a Shell Smash Carracosta set. I haven't added it into the OP yet but:

Carracosta @ White Herb
Sturdy
Adamant / Jolly
252 Atk / 252 Spe / 4 HP
- Shell Smash

Just pointing out that my username is spelt with an "a" instead of an "e" in Sensai.

They both look fine but maybe a Curse set would be nice too:

Carracosta @ Leftovers
Sturdy
Adamant
252 HP / 174 Atk / 78 Sp.Def
- Curse
- Aqua Jet
- Rock Slide
- Earthquake / Waterfall

I think a Curse set can arguably make it into a Bulky Sweeper , for people with that approach. Basically maxed HP for some great Bulk , some EV's dumped into Special Defense to help against it's weaknesses a bit too. It abuses Curse and Aqua Jet since Aqua Jet ignores the Speed drop from Curse. All pretty standard.

I'd put Energy Ball > Volt Switch for Rock types. Otherwise, it's perfect.

I didn't put in Kyurem-B? Wat.

Destroy everything in your path with Outrage. Anything that isn't KOed, tell the AI to stop using Steels or stop cheating. Boltbeam cos Boltbeam. Earth Power can handle any Steel that doesn't fall to other moves, even Bronzong thanks to Teravolt. Roost can heal LO recoil and Outrage confusions though.
