What is a good moveset for Jynx?

0 votes

Another traded Pokemon. It came with:

Lovely Kiss: Part of a strategy.

Dream Eater: High power, high accuracy, heals your Pokemon, part of strategy.

Avalanche: I'm getting rid of this. What should I get instead. I'm thinking Ice Beam.

Focus Blast: High power, used to deal with dark, rock, and steel types.

Jynx (F) @ Leftovers

Role: Rain Tank

Trait: Dry Skin

EVs: 196 HP / 252 Def / 30 SAtk / 30 SDef

Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk)

  • Hidden Power [Water] / Ice Beam
  • Calm Mind
  • Lovely Kiss
  • Psyshock

Ugh.. This Thing's defense is hard to get up.

Hidden Power water is great in the rain, and Calm Mind makes for some Special Bulk, Lovely Kiss makes your opponent go nighty night, and Psyshock gets some STAB into the mix.
EDIT: I now run Ice Beam > HP Water for several reasons, but mostly Dragonite. I've found several places where Ice Beam is generally better coverage. Plus.. It's still more powerful than HP Water in or out of rain.

Your movesets are the only things I have seen worth reading on here so far. Keep it up Dude.
I find that offensive.
Sorry, Trachy and PB also have good sets, I humbly apologize, but there is allot of noob sifting to do.

Jynx (F) @ Life Orb

Trait: Dry Skin

EVs: 252 SAtk / 68 SDef / 188 Spd

Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)

  • Lovely Kiss
  • Ice Beam
  • Nasty Plot
  • Psyshock

Put the foe to sleep and then get in Nasty Plot boosts. Ice Beam and Psyshock are STAB. Dream Eater is unreliable as the foe can wake up at any moment. So Psyshock is used instead. Life Orb lets you deal more damage, mainly to be used when you can't get in any Nasty Plot boosts. Dry Skin is nice, especially if you are in the Rain. If not, it still gives you Water type immunity. The EVs give you good enough Speed and high enough Special Attack, as well as some Special Defense.

Great team.

Ice beam is best for jynx unless you just want to destroy your opponet in one shot. If you do, then you should get blizzard.

Good. I'll take Ice Beam. I was already thinking about it but I wanted to make sure there wasn't a better move.

Jynx is a very good pokemon and one of its uses is a great water type switch-in/killer. Since most water types these days have at least 1 water move and some ice move to protect it from grass types, this gives Jynx the opportunity to power up.

Water Destroyer/Sweeper Jynx
Ability: Dry Skin
Nature: Timid (+Spe, -Atk)
EVs: 252 SpA, 252 Spe, 4 SpD
Item: Leftovers
- Ice Beam- High power STAB
- Psyshock- STAB and helps when dealing with special walls
- Nasty Plot- boost your special attack
- Energy Ball/Grass Knot- when your done powering up while facing water types, kill them

Jynx @ Big Root
Trait: Oblivious
EVs: 252 SAtk / 132 Spd / 126 HP
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
- Draining Kiss
- Sweet Kiss
- Lovely Kiss/Psychic/Ice Beam
- Attract

This is the ultimate frosty annoyer. I have used this set, I have won with this set, and let me tell you it works like a charm. Attract and Sweet Kiss are a must have, they decrease the chance of the opponent attacking to only 25% (I wish Jynx could learn Thunder Wave as well, to make the chance 12.5% but alas it doesn't). Lovely Kiss can be substituted with Psychic or Ice Beam, and I tend to go with Ice Beam because I don't like the Sleep condition and it covers more types. Anyway, use both Attract and Sweet Kiss (or just Sweet Kiss if the opponent is female) and then spam Draining Kiss. Draining Kiss recovers more than half of the damage done, and with the Big Root it recovers quite a bit more.
