Jellicent - Ghost/Water
Calm (+SpDef, -Atk)
EVs (252 HP, 220 SpDef, 36 Def)
Item: What you feel best suits it. Probably Leftovers.
Ability: Water Absorb

Mess with this Jelly and you will get burned.

Scald - Stab, burns target (30%)

Will-O-Wisp/Toxic - 100% Burn or Poison - if scalds not burning, something has to work.

Recover - Heal

Hex - Stab, covers ghost weakness, Doubles damage due to Will-O-Wisp or Scald

Jellicent @ Leftovers
Ability- Water Absorb
Nature- Bold
EVs- 252 HP/ 220 Def./ 36 Sp. Def.
- Scald
- Protect
- Recover
- Toxic
Toxic Poisons the foe, then alternate between the other three moves depending on how hard the opposing Pokemon hits you. I've tried it out and it works OK. You can also just scald if you want the burn on a physical attacker.

Jellicent @ leftovers

Nature: Bold
Ability: Water Absorb
EVs: 252 HP, 200 sp. def, 56 def

Recover/Giga Drain
Ice Beam

The point of this set is to slowly drive the opponent down on HP while trying to keep as much HP as possible. Burn as soon as possible, if fired typed just scald away. Hex for extra damage; Giga Drain and Recover to keep the HP up; Ice Beam for coverage.

Special sweeper/ troll

Ability-cursed body

Surf/hydro pump -STAB Surf: less powerful but more accurate. Hydro pump: more power, less accurate.

Shadow ball- STAB ghost 4 ghost

Psychic/toxic- Psychic for coverage, toxic for trolling

Ice beam/sludge bomb- Both do each other's job (grass coverage) sludge bomb is there if you don't have toxic

This set is really easy to get which is why I like it. :)

Well this is gen 6 and Jellicent can't wall anything cause of Knock Off and the EV spreads and abilities are wrong on other offensive Jellicents so...


Jellicent @ Choice Specs
Ability: Water Absorb
EVs: 252 Spe / 252 SAtk / 4 SDef
Modest Nature
- Water Spout
- Shadow Ball
- Surf / Scald
- Ice Beam / Energy Ball

Second best user of Water Spout because Water Absorb can heal it.
