What is a good LC moveset for Honedge?

0 votes

Lots of immunities and a pretty good defense stat. That SpD may ruin him, and his speed as well.
Before answering, read the rules.

This does not need a flag.
"There may be a case for some Little Cup movesets, but those can be asked by anyone, if and when you need a set."
Although PM requests that eviolite sets go on the parent moveset pages.

Honedge @ Berry Juice
Trait: No Guard
EVs: 196 Atk / 60 SDef / 196 HP / 56 Spd
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Shadow Claw
- Sacred Sword
- Swords Dance
- Autotomize

Double Dance, come in on something in threatens, get free set up and sweep. Unfortunately its ability is no where near useful. EVs are courtesy of smogon forums and provide some bulk, attack, and speed. Berry Juice is good for getting you to max health after a move leaves you still standing.

Honedge @ Assault Vest
Ability: No Guard
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 Def
Adamant Nature
- Shadow Sneak
- Sacred Sword
- Shadow Claw
- Iron Head

Honedge is a great Litte Cup Pokémon, with few weaknesses and very viable resistances and immunities, walling previous beasts in the tier, and striking back with amazing power, with it's great movepool. But like you said, his SpD may ruin him, so throw on an Assault Vest to take away that weakness.

Shadow Sneak: STAB Priority is always great.

Sacred Sword: Covers normal and dark types.

Shadow Claw: STAB, good power, 100% acc, high crit rate, what more could you ask?

Iron Head: STAB and chance to flinch.

Eviolite give the same bulk as Assault Vest, but with no drawback and more Def, use that above AV.
Completely forgot about Eviolite, lol. Now feel like an idiot.
