DPPt/HGSS Moveset advice?

  1. Hey all, I'm looking for advice on a few Pok

    I have a Weezing and an Electivire, here are their movesets:

    Weezing @ Black Sludge

    - Sludge Bomb
    - Haze
    - Will-O-Wisp
    - Pain Split

    Electivire @ Muscle Band
    Motor Drive

    - ThunderPunch
    - Ice Punch
    - Earthquake
    - Brick Break

    I've not used the others a great deal, but I'll give it a shot for you.

    Sceptile @ Petaya Berry

    - Energy Ball
    - Dragon Pulse
    - Focus Blast
    - Substitute

    Basically uses both the Petaya boost and Overgrow abilities to sweep. Keep Subbing until your Petaya Berry activates, by which time Overgrow should also be active. Then, sweep away with Energy Ball. Dragon Pulse for anyone who resists Energy Ball, and Focus Blast for Steel-types, who will resist both Energy Ball and Dragon Pulse.

    Feraligatr @ Salac Berry

    - Waterfall
    - Ice Fang
    - Earthquake
    - Swords Dance

    Similar to Sceptile, but with a small twist. Basically, keep using Swords Dance until you can't take any more damage. Hopefully Salac Berry will then activate, increasing your speed, along with the Torrent ability, then you can start sweeping with your (now) immensely powerful Waterfall.
    Ice Fang for Dragons, and Earthquake for Electric-types and other Water-types.

    Heracross @ Choice Band/Life Orb

    - Megahorn
    - Close Combat
    - Night Slash
    - Earthquake

    Simple, yet effective. Megahorn and Close Combat for powerful STAB attacks, Earthquake because it hits very hard, and Night Slash to take out any Ghost-types, who will otherwise resist both Megahorn and Close Combat, and in Gengar's case, Earthquake as well.

    I have never used Tangrowth, so I'm afraid I can't really help you on that one. Hope the rest helped though.
  3. Electivire@Expert Belt
    -Ice Punch
    -Cross Chop/Brick Break

    Optimal coverage, as it hits 13/17 types for a super-effective hit.

    Ice Punch for Grounds.
    Cross Chop/Brick Break is Power versus Accuracy.
    Earthquake is for more coverage.
    Thunderbolt can work, but only with a Lonely nature and 80 S.Atk EVs taken from its Speed stat.
    Thunderpunch can let you focus on its attack.

    EV set (Lonely) 252 Atk/80 S.Atk/172 Spd/6 HP

    Heracross@Choice Scarf
    -Close Combat
    -Stone Edge/Rock Slide
    -Earthquake/Shadow Claw/Night Slash/Facade

    Megahorn and Close Combat for STAB.
    Stone Edge/Rock Slide to hit Fliers.
    Last move is a filler, but Facade works well with Guts.
    Earthquake is always good.
    Shadow Claw/Night Slash is for Psychics.

    Feraligatr can use Earthquake to hit the Electric-types. Aerial Ace is a nice filler. Dragon Claw is also a good move.

    Sceptile doesn't need Leaf Storm or Strength. Focus Blast and then a Hidden Power would work. If you're running a Choice Specs and then plan on switching out right after the attack, Leaf Storm can stay in.

    Tangrowth@Lfe Orb
    -Ancient Power
    -Energy Ball
    -Focus Blast
    -Sludge Bomb/Leaf Storm

    Ancient Power to cover weaknesses.
    Energy Ball for STAB.
    Focus Blast for coverage.
    Sludge Bomb as a filler and Leaf Storm for hit-and-run attacking.

    Weezing@Black Sludge
    -Pain Split

    Pain Split to recover HP.
    Will-o-Wisp/Toxic is to cripple Pokemon.
    Thunderbolt and Flamethrower is a reliable combo.
