Best answer

White Herb.
Life Orb lowers Cloyster's HP, which will decrease the length of its sweep.
White Herb cancels out the Defense drop, so your Cloyster has more of a chance of surviving.

And also, use Rock Blast over Spike Cannon.

Thanks a lot Mew :3!
Not a problem.
lol with rock blast, thats my Cloyster's movset
It's the standard Shell Smash Cloyster set.
I say focus sash is better. Cloyster is really easy to take out and 90% of the time if they don't switch out on shell smash your cloyster will easily be stopped by any basic attack + quick attack.
