Likely tier: Neverused
Hey, trachy-Can you post a good moveset for a Seismitoad with the Lax Nature?  That'd be great.
I hate this guy. He is the only water type, other than Keldeo and Magikarp, to lack the move ice beam. You can't have a water type without ice beam!
makes up for it it sludge bomb/wave

Another pathetic Water/Ground type. They don't make them like they used to. This guys stats are automaticallly land him in Neverused, as only HP is above base 100. This means it is the only stat that can be above 300 at level 100 without the help of an item. Another major problem is the lack of stat raising moves, even Cheer Up, which might make this guy a better Neverused.

Ability: Water Absorb

EVs: HP, Attack, Sp Attack Nature: Brave/Quiet

Earthquake: A very powerful move, and STAB makes it even better.

Surf: STAB.

Sludge Wave: Used to deal with Grass types. The poison type version of Flamethrower and Ice Beam.

Drain Punch: Used to heal Gamageroge while doing decent damage to the foe.

only one problem if your last pokemon is  seismitoad and mine is vileplume and you have no ice attacks or flying or psychic and  sinds s.toad has 4x weakness from grass :)
Sometimes there's certain type or pokemon that will wall a set, but that seismitoad is your last pokemon is a lame and worthless excuse.
Another pathetic Water/Ground type?  PATHETIC?!?!  My Seismitoad, for your information, is my sole Pokemon Partner.  He's way better than one of those Samurott things.  I say that he's not pathetic AT ALL.  He's the complete opposite.

Seismitoad (F) @ Leftovers
Trait: Poison Touch
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 Def
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Poison Jab
- Aqua Ring
- Protect
- Drain Punch

Heal spam!

Leftovers and Aqua Ring let's you randomly spam leftovers for a big boost back to your HP. Poison Jab and Poison Touch work together for a great poison chance ( keep spamming protect ). Drain Punch is good coverage and will let you spam healing even more!

This guy is fun to troll with.

Seismitoad (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Water Absorb
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SDef
Sassy Nature (+SDef, -Spd)
- Stealth Rock
- Scald
- Earthquake
- Knock Off

This Seismitoad, when used in NU, is pretty damn hard to OHKO. It's defenses and HP stats aren't too shabby. Thanks to B2/W2, it got access to Stealth Rock, which is one of the reasons why a defensive set is a thing today. Scald bolsters its uninvested Defensive side. Earthquake's higher Power is more useful than Earth Power, and better STAB, imo. Knock Off helps the rather item dependant NU lose their Eviolites and Leftovers.

I actually like seismitoad.
Ability - Poison touch
Hydro pump - STAB
earthquake/dig/rock slide - STAB
drain punch - does alright damage whist healing yourself slightly
Venoshock - works well with the ability and good against grass types

rock slide is not stab for siesmitoad! he is a GROUND/Water, not a ROCK, Water
I like Seismitoad too!  Finally, a supporter!

Ability Swift Swim
Item Muscle Band
Rain Dance ( Increase Speed with swift swim)
Sludge Bomb ( Poison Foe)
Drain Punch ( Deal even more damage by taking away there health for you and more powerful since its a physical move and muscle band increases physical moves! and its just a powerful move)
Hydro Pump (STAB)

Drain Punch gives you 50% of the HP you dealt as damage to the foe. Try Big Root. Instead of 50%, you get 80%. (NOTE: the power does not increase, only the amount of HP you get back)
