Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

What is a good moveset for Weezing?

2 votes

Just got it in a trade and it needs improvement. It knows:

Poison Gas: No idea why it knows this. This move is horrible. However, I don't know if I should get in Toxic or not.

Sludge Bomb: Good power, high accuracy, good chance to poison the opponent, STAB

Shadow Ball: Good power, high accuracy, decent chance to decrease SP. Def, used to deal with Psychic types

Dark Pulse: Good power, high accuracy, decent chance to cause flinching, used to deal with Psychic types

Disruptor set: This is made specifically for countering annoying or threatening pokemon.

Destiny Bond-Last ditch.

Pain Split-Cuts through health nicely.

Clear Smog/Haze-eliminates stat changes.

shadow ball/flamethrower/thunderbolt/sludge bomb/venom shock/other-Coverage move depending on what you need.

A good move set would be...

sluge bomb-high poisioning rate

shadow ball-to take out psychics'

gyro ball-because of its terrible speed

fire blast-to burn and if one hp left on opponent the burn will take it out

Weezing's speed is WAY too high to use Gyro Ball. At 60, even the fastest enemies would only take a base 75 damage from it.

Weezing (M) @ Salac Berry

Role: Tank who takes e'm down with e'm

Trait: Levitate

EVs: 12 HP / 16 SAtk / 32 Def / 252 SDef / 196 Spd

Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)

  • Destiny Bond
  • Thunderbolt
  • Hidden Power [Ice]
  • Taunt

HP Ice and Thunderbolt, Like a mini bolt beamer!

Now with other Utilities, he can taunt foes, into nailing him, eventually activating his salac berry, now he outspeeds them, and takes them down with him, they being forced to attack due to taunt.

Gen V

Weezing (M) @ Black Sludge

Trait: Levitate

EVs: 252 Def / 252 SAtk / 4 SDef

Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)

  • Clear Smog
  • Will-O-Wisp
  • Thunder
  • Fire Blast

Clear Smog is a nice move that does damage and removes the opponents stat modifications (however, it does not remove the attack drop from burn.) This is a very handy move to have, and it even gets STAB. Will-o-wisp burns the foe, reducing their Attack and making Weezing bulkier. Fire Blast deals with the Steel types who are immune to Clear Smog. Thunder is for use in Rain, as Rain will reduce the effectiveness of Fire Blast on Steel types. Note also that in the Sun, Thunder decreases in accuracy, but Fire Blast increases in power. The EVs give Weezing bulk (as does Black Sludge) and a decent enough Special Attack stat. Your Special Attack still won't be amazing, but the high base power for Thunder and Fire Blast makes up for that.

Item: Leftovers
Ability: Levitate
Nature: Calm
EVs: 252 S.Defense, 200 Hp, 58 S.Attack


Will-o-wisp increases his defense and damages. Stockpile boosts defenses. Pain-split heals. Fire-blast or Thunderbolt for a coverage move.

Here's one I just thought up (haven't tested yet). I call it the wrecking wall.

Any nature that doesn't take away from Def, Sp.Def or Spd.(Bold, Careful, etc.)
Black Sludge
HP: 152/Def: 54/Sp.Def: 152/Spd: 152
Toxic Spikes/Pain Split/Sludge Bomb/etc.

Start with Stockpile to set up you wallness. You can use Infestation to slowly whittle down your opponent's health while draining away their move set with Spite. The last move is really up to you, though Toxic Spikes could potentially wreck it up for your opponent.

Instead of poison gas, maybe falmethrower, fire covers a lot of types and its a fairly good move.

Weezing (M) @ Black Sludge

Role: Physical Wall
Trait: Levitate

EVs: 96 HP / 252 Def / 160 SAtk

Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk)

  • Pain Split
  • Will-O-Wisp
  • Flamethrower / Sludge Bomb / Thunderbolt
  • Haze / Clear Smog

This is the set I use in my Hail team. Pain Split recovers off damage, and is really nice when you predict their switch into a fully health Pokemon, and get all your HP back.

Will-O-Wisp cripples physical Pokemon, which is what this set is all about: Physical Walling.

Flamethrower is nice for coverage. Just add whatever coverage you need for your team. You can also use Hidden Power if Weezing doesn't have the type you need.

I like to use Haze because it affects all types. However, it gets blocked by Taunt. Clear Smog gets STAB and does damage, but doesn't work on Steel types.

Weezing is my third favorite Pokemon ever. My moveset:
Ability: Levitate
Item:Wide Lens/Life Orb
Sludge Bomb: Chance of poison, great STAB
Zap Cannon/Thunderbolt: Zap Cannon if you can get a Weezing from Generation 2 as it can learn it through TM. Thunderbolt if you can't. Mine has Zap Cannon. As for the item, go for the Wide Lens if you choose Zap Cannon, Life Orb if you choose Tbolt.
Flamethrower: Coverage and chance to burn.
Shadow Ball: Coverage for its only weakness and I believe that only one Psychic type is not weak to it which is Malamar, which isn't a problem until we can get our Pokemon from Black/White and their sequels onto X/Y.

Ultimate Frustration Set

Weezing @ Black Sludge

Ability: Levitate

EV's: Hp 252, SpD 252, Def 4.

  • Will O Whisp
  • Protect
  • Pain Split
  • Clear Smog

Burn the opponent, the wait them out with Protect/Pain Split to gain back your health along with Black Sludge. Clear Smog is your STAB and will clear any SD, NP, or DD that tries to set up on you. If you expect a switch then go for the Will O Whisp again and alternate between Protect and Clear Smog/Pain Split when needed.

answered Jan 17, 2014 by dilamatan
Yeah, man! And I thought I was going to have to teach these guys that Weezing is not an attacker of any kind. Maybe Destiny Bond instead of Protect but other than that I agree fully with this!
Exactly! Unfortunately though until pokebank comes out for Gen 6 pain split won't be available? Would you still recommend Destiny Bond over Pain Split and keep Protect? Or switch both? I was thinking possibly Dark Pulse to take care of psychic switch ins, or possibly Explosion as a last resort kill.
