What are some good Pokemon that can learn Explosion?

Ok, I'm playing Black1. The past couple of days, I've been addicted to the move Explosion. I already have one good Explosion Pokemon in Ferrothorn.

Ability Iron Barbs, duh

Item Rocky Helmet

Gyro Ball

It would be HIGHLY apreciated if you posted movesets beside each Pokemon.

Note: The Pokemon DO NOT have to be from the Unova Region.

Thanks :)

All the Pokemon above can learn Explosion via Leveling up / Breeding.
The best out of all of them in my opinion is Azelf
This is because it doesn't rely solely on Explosion and with access to Curse it can power the Explosion up even further.

enter image description here

Azelf @ Focus Sash
Trait: Levitate
Naive Nature
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
~ Stealth Rock
~ Fire Blast / Psychic
~ Explosion
~ Taunt / Curse

Only use Curse on it if you want Explosion to be super charged.

But if you want a Pokemon that can be found in Unova go for Regirock which can be gained later on in the game and once again has access to Curse.

enter image description here

Regirock @ Leftovers
Trait: Clear Body
Adamant Nature
EVs: 204 HP / 148 Atk / 156 SpD
~ Stone Edge / Rock Slide
~ Earthquake / Thunder Wave
~ Curse
~ Explosion

Hope this helps.

I'm assuming you're going ingame so I can't be bothered to include EVs or natures;
Heatran @ Focus Sash
Trait: Flash Fire
~ Stealth Rock
~ Taunt
~ Explosion
~ Fire Blast
I run this lead in my fire mono. xD wooo

Metagross @ Lum Berry
Trait: Clear Body
~ Stealth Rock
~ Earthquake
~ Bullet Punch
~ Explosion
Lead, then kills itself
Alternatively do Earthquake/Meteor Mash/Zen Headbutt/Explosion

Azelf @ Light Clay
Trait: Levitate
~ Reflect
~ Light Screen
~ Taunt

Registeel @ Occa Berry
Trait: Clear Body
~ Curse
~ Iron Head
~ Explosion
~ Earthquake

Genesect @ Choice Scarf
~ U-turn
~ Ice Beam
~ Explosion
~ Iron Head

Of course all the above are just suggestions. They may not work that well :P
~ Explosion
