Keep X-Scissor on it for STAB. However, be sure to put spore on it. Spore has 100 Accuracy, and insuces sleep. Use this to your advantage, seeing as only Parasect, Paras, and Shroomish can learn it.

For the other two move slots, I'd put strong fillers. Like Speed said, put in something to hit Flying-types. No normal attack can hit super-effectively, so maybe Hidden Power (Ice) would do the trick. If Hidden Power is too technical, keep Cross Poison in there, and teach it Aerial Ace, maybe.

Take advantage of Parasects ability to be precise with attacks.

Yes it is a very good moveset I am not sure if it is possable but it would be good if it knew a move that was super effective flying types

Gen V

Parasect (M) @ Focus Sash

Trait: Dry Skin

EVs: 252 Atk / 128 Def / 128 SDef

Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)

  • Spore
  • Seed Bomb
  • X-Scissor
  • Pursuit

Focus Sash will let you get Spore in. Then you can hit with Seed Bomb and X-Scissor. Your opponent might switch out, so that is where Pursuit comes in. Dry Skin is just the best ability for it. No point in trying to bring up that incredibly low Speed, so I have 252 Attack and split the EVs between the defenses for some protection against priority.

Parasect (M) @ Focus Sash

Role: 1 Hp Sweeper

Trait: Dry Skin

EVs: 5 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd

Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)

  • Spore
  • Agility
  • X-Scissor
  • Seed Bomb

Well, If they don't kill it in the first hit they you're pretty darn Lucky.

Spore on the first turn, then get in an agility,

You're probably going to want to try to get 2, but if you can't, Well.

Lets hope that doesn't happen.

X-Scissor and Seed Bomb for Dual STAB.

First, what is with that Parasect? That isn't shiny. Second, your speed is so completely and utterly horrible that boosting it will still have it be incredibly slow. You'd be better off attacking.
Some people are just too Ignorant to Switch, or are hoping to Get Lucky, if you get in 2 You've got a sweeper. And if you get in one you have decent speed.

Gen III

Parasect (M) @ Salac Berry

Ability: Effect Spore

EVs: 128 Atk / 64 Def / 64 SDef / 252 Spd

Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)

  • Counter
  • Body Slam
  • Leech Life
  • Sludge Bomb

This guy's fun to use, but lacks a good movepool.

A little bit into his defenses, mainly needed for Counter in the Physical department, so he won't quite die from a neutral hit, but be able to OHKO the opponent with Counter, and get his Salac Boost. Now he has Body Slam, Leech Life ( His strongest STAB -_- ) and Sludge Bomb to try to Sweep with. Good crap, this guy has a shallow movepool.

Double/Triple Battle

Parasect (M) @ Life Orb
Trait: Dry Skin
EVs: 252 Atk / 128 Def / 128 SDef
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Spore
- Seed Bomb
- X-Scissor
- Aerial Ace

Parasect just is not made for multi-battles. Dry Skin might protect from Surf and provide some healing, but Flying and Fire are very common attacks. But oh well, moveset for every Pokemon. Spore just needs to be there. Sure, it isn't as great as in Single due to the opponent still having more Pokemon there to take you down, but it can incapacitate a foe. Seed Bomb and X-Scissor are STAB. Aerial Ace can hit any foe in a Triple Battle and is otherwise your best coverage option.
