Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

What is a good moveset for Dewgong?

3 votes

Aw Dewgong. One of my favorite Pokemon. Back when I was six, my bus driver loved to play Pokemon. She traded me 4 of her level 40 Pokemon when I needed them most for just some caught Pidgeys. Howeer, she would never trade hr favorite Pokemon, her Dewgong. Well, enough of the story-telling, here is my Res-talk Dewgong, which has the ability Thick Fat and is EV trained in HP and Attack:

Rest: Heals Dewgong fully and is hated by most everyone who has to face Dewgong users such as Lorelli.
Sleep Talk: A must with Rest. This is not that popular a choice among all Dewgong users because of Hydration, however, mine has the ability Thick Fat.
Aqua Tail: Good power, decent accuracy, STAB, deals with Rock types.
Ice SHard: High accuracy, STAB, priority, deals with Grass types.

Good, but you could add Ice Beam, Or Surf, or Signal Beam, as Ice Shard only has 60 power.

Great for most Dewgong's. However, mine is EV trained in attack.

Dewgong (M) @ Icy Rock

Role: Hail tank

Trait: Ice Body

EVs: 252 HP / 80 Def / 152 SAtk / 24 SDef

Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)

  • Hail
  • Aqua Ring
  • Surf
  • Blizzard

Touching Story of Trachy's, Love to read it.

Well, Speaking of Trachy, this is the Hail version of his set in a way.

Setting up his Own Hail being in a low tier, and then Aqua Ring, then he can Tank along with Blizzard and Surf.

Rain abuser. ( If you like abusing lower tier pokemon in OU, this is for you)

Suggested item: leftovers
Suggested abiltiy: hydration

Dive-STAB; lets him stall out.

Toxic-Stalls out and lets him do damage.

Rest-Cures status and restore health.

Aqua Ring-Gives him more health.

Again, this isn't the best set, but it's still pretty cheap.

Gen V

Dewgong (M) @ Damp Rock

Trait: Hydration

EVs: 244 HP / 4 Atk / 8 Def / 252 SDef

Careful Nature (+SDef, -SAtk)

  • Rest
  • Rain Dance
  • Waterfall
  • Ice Shard

Since this is going to be NU, you won't have instant Rain access (and I don't get why you would use this guy up there in OU with Politoed.) So why not set up the Rain yourself? You can then be fairly defense with the EVs given and Rest. Waterfall gets STAB and is boosted by Rain, so you don't need to have so much EVs in Attack. Ice Shard is for priority.

Double/Triple battle

Dewgong (M) @ Icy Rock
Trait: Ice Body
EVs: 160 HP / 252 SAtk / 96 SDef
Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
- Surf
- Blizzard
- Hail
- Hidden Power [Electric]

Surf is STAB that hits multiple foes, as is Blizzard. Dewgong doesn't have much going for it, so I chose to have it be a Hail user. HP Electric is coverage.

Dewgong (F) - Iron Ball

Role: Trick Room Tank

Trait: Thick Fat

EVs: 252 HP / 252 ATK / 6 SP. DEF

Brave Nature (+Atk, -Speed)

Drill Run - Covers Rock and Electic and is a great move anyway
Aqua Tail/ Dive- STAB
Icicle Spear/ Ice Shard- STAB
Fling - 130 base power with Iron Ball its good for pyschics and ghosts

This Moveset is for a Trick room team however Brave could be swaped for Adamant to make a Normal Tank

This is my first ever moveset hope it helps someone :)

I love this set! This makes Dewgong a monster!

Dewgong! Abomasnows Assistant!

Ability: Ice Body Nature: Bold (+ Def. - Att. ) Item: Leftovers Ev's: HP: 166 Def.:166 Sp. Def.:166

Aqua Ring
Stockpile
Frost Breath
Brine

This is just an amazing set! First your lead needs to be an Abomasnow with the icy rock, then switch out to this monster! First you set up aqua ring. Then every turn you can get HP back from the Ice body ability, Leftovers AND aqua ring! You will get A LOT of your HP back every turn. Then you start setting up Stockpiles so you can set up and make your defenses sky high. Then you can use Frost breath which in Gen. Vl, it is stronger than Blizzard/ it is a critical hit every time to. Brine is STAB and if you got your opponents HP down to half, it will do double.
