Venoshock Sweeper Crobat

enter image description hereenter image description here
Crobat @ Leftovers
Ability : Inner Focus
Calm Nature
EVs : 252 Sp.Def / 252 Spd / 4 Sp.Atk

- Toxic
- Venoshock
- Heat Wave
- Nasty Plot

If your using a Klefki as your lead, this could be a good sweeper. So basically, Klefki will set up Light Screen, Set Up Spikes, and then switch to Crobat. Crobat, will use Toxic, and use Heat Wave if the foe is a steel type. Then Crobat will use Venoshock, and then, if the foe isn't that strong, you can set up a Nasty Plot. You can also change Nasty Plot to HP Ground incase a Heatran shows up. So after that, Poison then Shock. He will be incredibly strong with this set. Venoshock, Multiplied, will have 125 base power with Toxic, and have 185 base power with stab, after a Nasty Plot, will have an enormous 370 base power. 2 Nasty Plots = 555
Base Power 3 Nasty Plots = A Scary 740 Base Power. If it were super effective, like against Breloom, it would have 1,480 Base Power 4x, Against a Whimsicott, Venoshock would have 2,960 Base Power! This is really a scary set. If you can use it.

Crobat @ Black Sludge
Trait: Infiltrator
Nature: Jolly
252 HP / 4 Def / 252 Spe

- U-Turn
- Taunt
- Brave Bird
- Cross Poison

This set is to prevent other stalls from the opponent and is also a great scout with U-Turn. With his 130 base speed stat It's joint top fastest none legendary/mega Pokemon in the game. This set is walled by Steel and Rock types, however it is not supposed to be a stall or wall set, he's supposed to maybe take a hit and U-Turn out or Taunt then U-Turn to gain initiative. I've also found him to be a nice addition to the team purely for his speed towards the end of the battle so running dual STAB is nice although like I said a lot of Pokemon wall him.

A big note: never bring Crobat out if the opponent has a Klefki the priority Thunder-Wave almost renders Crobat useless. If you can predict the Klefki coming in you can go for the Taunt and then U-Turn, the moves work excellent together. Now you have a free switch in.

Crobat @ Black Sludge
Trait: Inner Focus
Nature: Modest
EVs: 252 Def / 252 SpDef / 4 HP


Venoshock: (Type: Poison / Power: 65 / Accuracy: 100)

Roost: (Type: Flying)

Double Team: (Type: Normal)

Toxic: (Type: Poison)

Use toxic to badly poison your opponent, then use double team over and over again (4-6 times) to sit back and let your opponent suffer from poison damage. Once you've used Double Team as much as much as you'd like, use roost to heal if you need to. Then use Venoshock to finish of the opponent with a whopping 130 power.


Crobat @ ( No item)
Trait: Inner Focus
Nature: Jolly
EVs: 252 Atk / 126 Spd / 126 HP


Cross Poison: (Type: Poison / Power: 70 / Accuracy: 100) STAB, decent power, and high crit ratio.

Acrobatics: (Type: Flying / Power: 55 / Accuracy: 100) Massive damage since Crobat isn't holding anything, plus STAB.

Confuse Ray: (Type: Ghost / Accuracy: 100) Can come in handy sometimes.

U-Turn: (Type: Bug / Power: 70 / Accuracy: 100) Decent power, Hit and run. Also deals with Psychic types.

The BEST moveset for Crobat is
Cross Poison
Brave Bird
Confuse ray
Now that moveset has good coverage plus it is actually good.
Ev's 252 in Attack and 252 in speed, 6 in HP
Item is Black Sludge
and Ability is Inner focus
Nature Adamant or Jolly.
IV's in Attack,Def,Sp.def,Speed, HP. (preferably)
BTW don't make him a wall or Special attacker....he isnt made for that purpose. Enjoy my wisdom :)

Item: Black Sludge. EV Spread: 252 Spe, 252 HP, 4 Atk. Nature: Jolly (+Spe, -SpA) Ability: Inner Focus

I'm going to start out by saying that this moveset is VERY different from your average Crobat. You may think it terrible and weak but give it a chance before you talk down on it. It generally works for me and you're welcome to try it also.

Haze - Prevents your opponent from raising his or her stats to become an unstoppable force.

Defog - Takes away annoying Switch Hazards and lowers your opponents evasion if you want to use a move that requires more accuracy.

Cross Poison - Great STAB move with a higher chance of critical and the chance to poison your opponent

U-Turn - Predict your opponents move and switch out to a type that it will not effect. Plus, it's a generally good move for Crobat in general.

This Crobat isn't set up to be a last resort or to be a great attacker. I always use Crobat first and U-Turn to try to predict an opponents moves and to keep Crobat alive for when I need him.

Crobat @ Choice Band/Leftovers
Ability: Inner Focus
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Adamant Nature (+Atk. - SpAtk.)
- Sludge Bomb
- Shadow Ball
- Aerial Ace/Confuse Ray
- Steel Wing/Confuse Ray

Sludge Bomb and Shadow Ball are physical moves because it is in Gen III. Sludge Bomb and Aerial Ace are STAB, and Shadow Ball covers Psychic. Steel Wing covers Ice and Steel, there's not many options in Gen III. Confuse Ray is a good alternative. Choice Band should be the item if Confuse Ray is not used. Otherwise, Leftovers.

This is the move set that I use whenever I just play casually with Crobat

-Cross poison (decent damage, 100 acc, chance of poison, and increased crit ratio)
-Steel wing (decent damage, deals with rock/ice type weaknesses)
-Aerobatics (110 base damage + STAB with no item)
-Shadow ball (good damage, can lower there special defense, good coverage against psychic types)
