    It's been a while since I posted here. I'm getting back into battling (finally), but I need a little help with a certain Pokemon.

    Talonflame @ Leftovers
    Gale Wings
    EVs ???

    Brave Bird

    The EVs are what I need help with because I'm going for a mixed attacker here. Flamethrower is there to obviously hit Pokemon who have weaker special defense. While the rest is standard (although I wasn't sure what to put the fourth moveslot. I also gave it Roost and Leftovers in an attempt to hopefully keep the thing alive because it's so useful to my team. Any other suggestions?

    Talonflame's big problem here is that its base stats on offense are too low to split EVs over, and most of the stuff that would likely switch in against you won't be bothered by your mixed set anyway (read: every Rock-type in the game.)

    Talonflame's far better off running moves like U-Turn and Bulk Up to trip up anything switching in on him, so I'd stick with a pure physical set for him.

    Roost can stay though.

    Is Naive good or do I need a new nature?

    Also good thing I didn't attempt to EV it myself.

    Jolly is better just because you're lowering a stat you won't be using anyway.
