What is a good moveset for Miltank?

2 votes

I actually have two very usable Miltank's, but I will only give out one of them. The other one uses my Complex Focus Punch moveset that some of you know about :) Miltank has always been one of the Pokemon I hated facing most, along with Gyarados, Pidgeot, and Tyranitar. My Miltank has the ability Scrappy and knows:

Body Slam: Good power, high accuracy, STAB, good chance to paralyze, mine isn't friendly enough for Return.
Earthquake: Earthquake is incredible.
Curse: Increases Attack and Defense.
Heal Bell: Cures any status ailments on the team.

By the way everybdy, I  changed my team around so that everyone except for Charizard (who is never leavin my team, I just use him as a lead) fits in with my Tyranitar. I replaced my Milotic and Snorlax for Swampert (who is immune to Sand Stream) and Roserade (who is using Sand Stream to its advantage, knowing: Leech Seed, Ingrain, Giga Drain, and Weather Ball and holding the Big Root.)

EVs: 48 HP / 160 Atk / 252 SDef / 48 Spd

Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)

Okay, This Set is for FabianVasquez6.

A Great Lead, that surprises People, 1 Weakness, that Being Fighting, and a New Found Resistance to Fire and Ice, Fire being a very common type to lead with, This makes him great.

He has Rocks, To set up some annoying Hazards, He has Fire Punch For Ferrothorn Forretress Durant and all other annoying Leads that have only 1 weakness.

Body Slam For STAB and Hopefully some Parahax, Zen Headbutt for Coverage Agaisn't Fighting Types, Although Heart Stam is useable if you want more reliability.

Heal Bell- Works as a team utility.

Body Slam/Facade -run STAB normal and abuse paralysis or status abuse whenever you want. Facade can work nicely with Heal bell if the opponent predicts you having it, which is very likely considering how frequently Miltank runs this, so it can be used to your advantage and hold out a bit longer if you get hit with something like taunt. Double edge is for all out damage, and Return is the well rounded move to use, so fit it as you need.

Milk Drink-Gives basic recovery.

Stealth Rock-Self explanatory

Suggested item: Leftovers
Suggested Ability: Thick Fat (If you're trying to counter something specific, like a Serperior or something, then sap sipper can also serve a nice purpose, but you might run into some move continuity issues)

Why bringing this question back to life?
Because moveset questions are put in place for the sake of answering the movesets, not for a specific person. They aren't like thread topics or the other questions.

Double Edge/Return All Out damage, goes well with ability. Return doesn't give recoil.

Earthquake-Hits Steel and rock types that try to resist STAB.

Toxic-Allows it to break up bulk in walls it would otherwise have trouble trying to KO.

Milk Drink-Allows it to shrug off damage from recoil.

Suggested item: Life Orb

Suggested Ability: Scrappy

Miltank =D
I think she's better than Blissey because she has average stats. Blissey lacks hardly in defense and attack so a powerful, physical, fighting type move could pretty much kill Blissey in one hit.

Item: Life Orb
Trait: Scrappy
Nature: Adamant

Body Slam - STAB, nice power.
Milk Drink - Heals her.
Zen Headbutt / Brick Break - ZH deals with fighting types. BB has nice coverage.
Stealth Rock - Set this up with x2 toxic spikes (drapion) so then you'll really piss your opponent off.

Miltank (ambiguous) w/ leftovers

Ability: Scrappy

EVs: 252HP/252Def/4Sp.Def

Nature: +def - attack


Thunder Wave

Super annoying Miltank, doesnt often get OHKO'd and can hit ghost types. Also faster than more pokes in RU than you think.

Gen VI the great cow wall.

Miltank: Scrappy
Nature: Jolly to give slight outspeed in 100 class.
Item: Weakness policy
252 SPD 252 DEF 4 HP

Power-up Punch
Milk Drink

This set destroys physical teams. Substitute is there so you won't get toxic or will-o-wisp stalled. Miltank can take hits so only a special fighting type will be an issue after weakness policy. Continued powerup punches, milk drink and subs will eventually have it set up to sweep.
