  1. Step Form

Ability: Serene Grace

EVs: Attack, Speed, Def Nature: Impish

Ancient Song: Allows Meloetta to change into Step form.

Close Combat/Brick Break: Ultimate power or no backlash. Choose which fits your style of play.

Stone Edge: Type coverage

Shadow Claw: Deals with Ghost types.

Its relic song
He posted this before it was released. Ancient Song is a translation of the Japanese name for it, since that's all there was back then.
Actually, Serene Grace is it's only ability.   :-P
Attack? Why not make it a special sweeper or a Special wall?

While the legendaries this Gen were not up to par with Gen 4, we have some good ones. Meloetta is one of them. It's ability to take down any defensive foe (excluding Shuckle, Bronzong, and Dusknoir) makes it a valuable addition to OU, where teams can be using Blissey one minute, and Foretress the next. I have a few movesets for it.

  1. Mixed.

Ability: Serene Grace

EVs: Attack, Sp Attack, Speed Nature: Hasty

Ancient Song: ALlows this Pokemon to be a mixed attacker.

Close Combat: A powerful Fighting attack for use with Step forme. Death to Blissey!

Shadow Ball: Deals with Ghost types, and has a good Sp Def lowering chance.

Psychic/Stone Edge: Which one, STAB or type coverage?

I say STAB. You'll be kicking yourself if you go against a Fighting type without Psychic.
Relic Song

  1. Voice Form

Ability: Serene Grace

EVs: Sp Attack, Sp Def, Speed Nature: Timid

Psycho Shock/Psychic: Psycho Shock deals with those who have high Sp Def, while Psychic has higher base power.

Thunder/Charge Beam: Either have a low accuracy, but powerful move with a high paralyze chance,or a way to raise Special ATtack.

Shadow Ball: Good Sp Def lowering rate, and deals with Ghost types.

Calm Mind/Hyper Voice/Focus Blast: STat raising (only if you don't have Charge Beam), STAB with no type coverage, or type coverage but low accuracy.

Look at her! so damn cute (and deadly).

enter image description here

Meloetta @ Leftovers*
Ability: Serene Grace
EVs: 132 HP / 252 SpA / 120 SpD
Timid Nature
- Psyshock
- Focus Blast/Thunderbolt
- Substitute
- Calm Mind

Focus Blast covers Dark types while Thunderbolt is alot more reliable and provides better coverage.
Calm Mind to provide moar powah and Special Defense.
Substitute to somewhat guarantee Calm Mind and for other obvious reasons.
Psyshock STAB and because screw you, special walls.
*The Leftovers support Meloetta's Special Defense.

Meoletta

Item - silk scarf/leftovers

ability - Serene Grace

  • relic song - changes meloetta to step form. may put foe to sleep (30% chance)
  • hyper voice - good power
  • close combat - awesome power
  • acrobatics - acrobatics is a good move because its power doubles if the user is holding no item. However, if the user is holding a flying gem it will be used before the move has time to calculate its power, so it triples!

Meloetta


Very difficult case. I recently got mine and I have two. I was planning that one will stay in Piruette Form while the other keeps its Aria Form, but turns out that if you use Relic Song during battle, Meloetta will reset anyway to Aria Form, which really does suck. My solution for the problem is that I will use one that will always be changing Formes, whenever I feel like it and the other that never will learn Relic Song.


Moveset #1: Form Changer
Nature: Bashful/Hardy/Docile/Serious/Quirky (the neutral ones, they're safest)
Ability: Serene Grace

  • Relic Song Signature move, Form changing and Serene Grace gives an increased chance of causing sleep on enemy.
  • Psychic STAB in Aria, coverage in Piruette Form.
  • Close Combat Extra-Mega-Ultra-Powerful in Piruette Form, but if it is needed, it can be used as coverage in Aria Form.
  • Shadow Claw: None of the other moves affect Ghost types (Psychic only works on Gengar) therefore this is a must.

You may notice that I have two Physical and two Special moves in the moveset above. In case you make an adjustment to it, keep two of each if you want a Form changing Meloetta. If not, try my other moveset.


Moveset #2: Aria Form Meloetta
Nature: Timid (decrease the Attack stat for some speed which Aria Meloetta unfortunately lacks. I'm into speedy Pokemon.)
Ability: Serene Grace

  • Hyper Voice High-Powered Special move that proves that Meloetta does sing. Also is a STAB.
  • Psyshock Your enemy will be expecting the unexpected now. If however that move doesn't work for you, you may always replace it with Psychic.
  • Focus Blast For the coverage. Give Meloetta the Wide Lens to increase accuracy.
  • Thunder Wave/Thunderbolt/Shadow Ball: Having the opponent paralyzed is pretty handy, especially that it also halves your opponent's speed (I recently found that out). Also if you miss with Focus Blast, they're less likely going to be able to take advantage of that. However Shadow Ball gives you the chance to hit most Ghost types effectively, which you can't really do with the other three. I can't decide. Help me out by posting some comments to this answer!
