Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

Are there any other ways to power Zangoose?

4 votes

With his new ability, poison Rampage, his physical attacks get stronger when poisoned. So What if I did the following:

-Boosted attack power with Swords Dance
-Poisoned him either with a pokemon, (I could use a toxic orb, but that wastes an item slot)
-Gave him a life orb
-STAB

Then use facade....

So the set would be:

Facade-Powered by all of this.

Swords dance-boosts up his stats

Night Slash-deals with Ghost types who try to get immunity to facade.

Close Combat/Aerial Ace-Close Combat deals with steel and rock types who dare to resist normal attacks, or normal to cover his fighting weakness. Any other suggestions? I plan on using him in double battles, so my partner can poison him.

Poor poor Zangoose. With this moveset he will faint so quickly. Great moveset! Although this would work best in double-battle where you can poison him. Hopefull yyou can use Poisonpowder or the like so that he won't take a ton of damage. No problems here. EV train in ATtack, HP, and Speed, giving it an Adament nature.

That's the idea. Toxic poison would kill him in a heartbeat. I also plan on having a pokemon with the healing attack that lets you restore your partner's health. I can't remember what it's called.
Yep, nothing else I can say. The moves and item are perfect. The EVs and nature I gave are all the help I can give.
A pokemon with trick might help. find a pokemon who can learn trick that is immune to poison if possible, and switch like this Zanggose>toxic orb-< pecha berry ? trading a peca berry would help if you need you cure yourself. just a suggestion. not a great one
