drapion lv 50
no held item thinking on black sludge however
docile
battle armor(would have prefered sniper)
sludge bomb(I want to replace it with cross poison)
sword dance
x-scissor
earthquake
any suggestions any at all :)
Aqua Tail > X-scissor for Ground types. I'd also go with Crunch instead of Cross Poison.

Been a while since I posted some se... no Feraligatr set? Wat.

Feraligatr @ Muscle Band
Torrent
Adamant
252 Atk / 252 Spe / 4 HP
-Dragon Dance / Swords Dance / Agility
-Waterfall
-Earthquake
-Ice Punch

DD is awesome, tthe other boosting moves are pretty cool too. Waterfall for STAB. Ice+Ground gets pretty cool coverage.

252 att/ 252 sDef/ 4 Hp
hammer arm
stone edge
earthquake
megahorn
Hammer Arm gets fairly redundant coverage next to Earthquake. Use Rock Polish. Use a Muscle band > Zoom Lens as well.

Sawsbuck @Life Orb
Serene Grace/Sap Sipper
Adamant/Jolly
252 Attack/ 252 Speed/ 4 HP
-Horn Leech
-Return
-Jump Kick
-Rock Slide
Sawsbuck can't learn Rock Slide. Wild Charge is the next best thing.

Which reminds me: In the OP, Sawsbuck's wood Horn needs to become Horn Leech. Also, Jump Kick is absolutely essential for any Sawsbuck so slash Wild Charge next to Swords Dance instead.

Thundurus (Therian Forme) @ Electric Gem
Volt Absorb
Mild (nature cannot be changed, caught it on PDR)
- focus blast
- thunderbolt
- dark pulse
- nasty plot

Apart from Hidden Power [Ice] instead of Dark Pulse, there's not much. I'd go with a Life Orb instead of the Electric Gem as well.

^ HP [Ice] might not be viable since he'll most likely need to breed.

Lucario @ Life Orb
Inner Focus
Bashful
- Shadow Ball
- Work Up
- Ice Punch
- Aura Sphere / Drain Punch

It's for B2.

This set is almost identical to the OP's, except the OP one has a Naive nature.

Braviary @ Life Orb / Leftovers
Keen Eye / Sheer Force / Defiant
Adamant
252 Atk / 252 Spe / 6 HP
- Brave Bird
- Return
- Superpower
- Rock Slide / Shadow Claw

Just a few changes to the OP's Braviary set.
Superpower is awesome. In fact any decent fighting attack is a blessing to a Flying type. It hits Rock, Ice and Steel types, all of which Braviary has trouble against without Superpower(bar Ice thanks to Rock Slide).
Brave Bird and Superpower also hit everything except Rotom, Zapdos and Thundurus. There are exactly 4 scenarios in all of Unova that make you face one of these pokemon.

Also Defiant is a pretty cool ability, blocking Intimidates etc.

And you should use a different item, mine personally goes like this:

Thundurus (Therian) @ Bright Powder
Modest Nature, Volt Absorb
EVs: ?
- Psychic
- Nasty Plot
- Dark Pulse
- Thunderbolt

It is honestly my favorite moveset for him.

Hi remind me to change this
Can someone help me with a mantine move set? I've already got it to level 55 so I can't change the nature.
Mantine@leftovers
Edit:Relaxed
-Air slash
-Surf
-Rock tomb (I want to change this)
-Ice beam

Its got water veil because I got it in the dream world (so I could get it earlier) and I can't remember its nature right now I'll edit after I check.

(PS. I don't know/care what the evs are)

For Aurawarrior8
I completely forget that Sawsbuck cannot use Rock Slide, so I will use Wild Charge, Sword Dance or Megahorn instead. Also I will change Sawsbuck ability to Sap Sipper. Thanks for the suggestion.

Giga Drain > Seed Bomb to restore HP. Use a Bold nature too.

Protect isn't really doing much at all, so use Leech Seed to help support teammates.

Typhlosion @ Sitrus Berry
Modest Nature, Blaze
~ Eruption
~ Flamethrower
~

Focus Blast and Hidden Power [Grass] for the last two moveslots.
If you can't get Hidden Power, you're more or less forced to go mixed with Wild Charge. If you do go mixed, use a Rash nature.

le quant-à-soi
I know I haven't updated the OP in ages, but that's because I'm really busy atm. I'll update it when I'm done with exams.

And we apparently don't have a Krookodile moveset...

Krookodile @ Life Orb / Expert Belt
Moxie / Intimidate
Adamant
252 Atk / 252 Spe / 4 HP
- Earthquake
- Crunch
- Rock Slide
- Bulk Up / Outrage

^ Too fragile for Bulk Up, go for Dragon Claw instead.

Can someone help me out?

I have a lvl 1 Aerodactyl that I'm going to EV train

It's a Jolly nature, what EVs should I put in the stats and what is a good moveset?

^

Aerodactyl @ Life Orb
Jolly Nature, ? Ability. 252 Attack EV's, 252 Speed EV's, 4 HP EV's
~ Rock Slide
~ Fly
~ Earthquake
~ Thunder Fang

With this set, you can cover every single one of Aerodactyl's many weaknesses.
Earthquake: Steel, Rock, Electric
Rock Slide: Ice
Thunder Fang: Water
Fly: Just a STAB move!

Hope this answered your question! :)

Aerial Ace and Sky Attack are better than Fly, damage-wise. Fly is an option only for traveling in-game.

Which do you think is better? Aerial Ace or Sky Attack

I know that Sky Attack is a two turn move so I'm a little hesitant about using it.
