Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

Which move should I get rid of?

0 votes

My Forretress has the moves, Stealth Rock, Spikes, Toxic Spikes and Rapid Spin. I'm thinking of replacing one, but which? It has Physically Defense and HP EV'S.

Why does it say 1 flag
apparently someone thinks this is not a good question
but i think it is alright
well i think these arent allowed, there are moveset questions for this kind of stuff
I checked the rules. Either someone thinks its an opinion or a moveset question
I think this is fine because it's referring to a specific Forretress (I remember there being something similar with a Heatran question).

Replace Toxic Spikes with Volt Switch.

It will do near nothing damage wise, but it'll keep momentum. Toxic Spikes is okay, but if your opponent has a Poison type (which are all the rage these days because of Fairy), then the Spikes will be absorbed and will be useless.

Volt Switch is also good on Forretress because it's slow, so if you have confidence in its defences, you can see what your opponent will do with their Pokemon and then Volt Switch safely out into something else without your next Pokemon taking a hit.
