Encourage??? I know for these you use the japanese translations sometimes for some reason but the translation was brute force not encourage.
It shows up as sheer force for me!!

EVs: Attack and Speed

Waterfall - decent power & STAB
Earthquake - Excellent move that covers plenty
Ice Punch - average power but covers a lot of types
Dragon Dance/Swords Dance - good stat boosts

uh.. i'm gonna give this a shot.

( finally figured out how to put images on stuff!!! =] )


jolly nature

EVs 252 ATK, 128 DEF, 64 SP DEF, 64 SPD


i saw the type coverage thingy, and dark and fighting seemed to be really good so.. i chose those moves for coverage. dragon dance really beefs up his sweeping stats, so he can be a bulky sweeper, the evoilite lets him set that up easier. waterfall is same type attack bonus, and that extra 50% power makes everything better. so yeah.

Gen V

Feraligatr (M) @ Life Orb

Trait: Sheer Force

EVs: 252 Atk / 140 Def / 116 Spd

Impish Nature (+Def, -SAtk)

  • Dragon Dance
  • Waterfall
  • Ice Punch
  • Rock Slide

Dragon Dance. Such a wonderful move. Easily the best stat raising move of Gens III and IV. Feraligatr has the EV spread it does as it gives it enough Speed and power along with Dragon Dance. Especially with Sheer Force and Life Orb. All moves (besides Dragon Dance of course) are boosted by Sheer Force, and no recoil is given by Life Orb. Waterfall provides STAB. Ice Punch and Rock Slide are type coverage. Feraligatr also has some EVs put into defense. This is to protect against priority, of which all but the rare Vaccum Wave is physical.

ability --- TORRENT
evs --- 252 HP, 128 ATK, 128 SPECIAL DEF
ADAMANT nature

COUNTER --- lots of hp, and a little bit less defense means that he makes great use of this!
DIVE or WATERFALL --- i prefer dive to get extra lefties boost, but waterfall is cool too
EARTHQUAKE --- coverage! =)
ROCK SLIDE --- i think they call it " edge quake " coverage, works well. ( rock and ground )

Double/Triple Battle

Feraligatr (M) @ Life Orb
Trait: Sheer Force
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Def
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Rock Slide
- Earthquake
- Waterfall
- Ice Punch

Damn the unreliability of stat boosting!!! Now I have some sort of tank. Rock Slide and Earthquake hit mutliple foes, Rock Slide boosted by Sheer Force. Waterfall is Sheer Force boosted STAB. Ice Punch is Sheer Force boosted coverage.

if you got good attack here is what I recomend

  • swords dance/ dragon dance (boost attack)
  • aqua tail/waterfall(STAB)
  • metal claw(raises attack)
  • ice fang or punch(covers grass weakness)
