Suggested item: leftovers
suggested nature: Sand veil

  • Thunderbolt/Surf/toxic
  • Earth power
  • Sandstorm
  • Pain split/protect

This is a pretty standard set. the attacking moves are for type coverage, sandstorm is there to activate his ability and help stall out a bit before attacking. The idea with this is to take a bit of damage, and use pain split to cut your opponent's health, while having sand and possible poison to wear them down. once you feel safe, and recover more health, you can go for an attack and finish them off. This helps make up for his mediocre attacking stats.

A pathetic Pokemon. There isn't anything really good to talk about.

Ability: Sand Veil

EVs: HP, Defense, Sp Def Nature: Calm

Sandstorm: Raises evasiveness while damaging the foe.

Toxic: Inflicts bad poison.

Pain Split: Provides healing for Maggyo while also damaging the foe.

Thunderbolt: In case the foe has Taunt, Maggyo has this. STAB.

its not that pathetic as a no evolution pokemon.
There should be a move called derp out. It should be stunfisk's signature, and a OHKO move.

Item: Leftovers
Ability: Static/Sand-veil(If for some reason you are using him in the sand)
Nature: Modest
EVs: 252 S.Attack, 128 Defense, 128 S.Defense





This is a Stunfisk set where I have, instead of their more powerful counter parts, given him moves with a 30% chance of status. Why? Because Stunfisk is already one of most ridicules and funny looking Pokemon ever, but having him mess up other Pokemon with status moves is even funnier (if only he had Serene grace XD). First we have Discharge which gets STAB and 30% Paralyze chance. Mud-bomb is also STAB and has a 30% chance of lowering Accuracy. Scald is coverage and has 30% Burn chance. Sludge-bomb covers Grass Types and has a 30% Poison chance. This is one of those Hax Pokemon that may not anger your opponent (unless it is competitive) so much as make they laugh, it is a great Pokemon for having a good time.

Note: If you do not like burning you opponent as much as lowering their accuracy you could go with Muddy-water instead of Scald.

I always thought stunfisk was weak but I have had my mind changed, try using this moveset.

Quirky (nature)
Rocky Helmet (item)
Static (ability)

Scald ( good stab and it may burn)
Revenge (takes out ice weakness normally double damage)
Thunderbolt (stab and another chance to cause paralysis with static)
Sludge Wave (takes out weakness to grass)

This pokemon can burn, poison and cause paralysis not bad for a pokemon witch appears to be so weak!

EVs Please??
Sure; HP, defence and attack - you need an attack EV  for revenge to have some power.
i mean the distribution. look at the one's above.( 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SDef ) like this
Oh ok then:
256 HP, 4 Def, 252 (I think)
256 HP... You can only have 255 EVs in one stat, and only 252 that will be effective.

Item: Leftovers
Nature: bold
Trait: Static/Sand Veil
EVs: 252 hp, 252 def, 4 s.def.


1 - Discharge
2 - Toxic/Sludge Bomb/HP grass
3 - Scald
4 - Protect

Scald has a great chace to inflict burn, so it can ruin a sweeper's attack and the evs may make it survive to one earthquake, giving it the chance to burn the foe. Discharge has stab and great chance to prlz, crippling the foe. Toxic if you want to ensure the foe's death in a few turns, sludge bomb if you want to deal with grass types (i'd rather switch) and HP grass to take out the ground/water types that are immune to discharge and may absorb scald. Protect to recover hp with leftovers and deal damage with poison or burn.

Double/Triple Battle Stunfisk

Stunfisk (M) @ Petaya Berry
Ability: Static
Evs: 255 Atk, 255 Spd
Nature: Rash (+Sp.Atk,-Sp.Def)
- Endure
- Discharge
- Earth Power
- Muddy Water

For use in Trick Room only. The whole point of this set is to take as muck damage on Turn 1 as possible while hanging on with Endure to activate your Petaya Berry as your teammate sets up TR. Now if everything worked out, and they have no Priority, you can attempt a sweep. Discharge is STAB and hits everything that isn't immune, Earth Power is STAB that gets good coverage, and Muddy Water hits both your foes & has a chance to lower their Accuracy.
