If you are asking what moves Blastoise can learn that are super-effective against Jellicent then they are: Fling, Bite, and Hidden-power(Electric/Grass/Ghost/Dark). If you want to know moves that would be useful on Blastoise that could help counter Jellicent then..

Running a Physical set: You could go Physical tank will Blastoise and have him Learn Earthquake which would hit Jellicents lower Defensive stat for some strong neutral damage. Though watch out for Will-o-wisp.

Running Toxic: Probably the better of the two. Have Toxic and stall him to death.


Though Blastoise is not a very good counter to Jellicent in the first place. I would suggest having another Pokemon on your team to get rid of it. Physical based Grass/Electric/Ghost/Dark Types are the best choice for handling Jellicent.


I would like to inform you that, that moveset is not very good for Blastoise at all. Blastoise is a defensive Pokemon you have a sweeper set. Also Wide lens will not make those moves that accurate: Focus-blast and Blizzard are 77% acc with wide lens still not good, Hydro-pump goes to 88% acc which is good but not amazing, Rock-slide goes to 99% which is good acc.

only 88? i thought it would be better than that... and its just my blastoise is special based. but thanks for the advice! :)
oh. i tried the hidden power (my blastoise is grass apparantly) and it works! i also replaced blizzard with ice beam for more accuracy and i whooped someone in a triple battle! then they quit at the end before it even counted. coward. -_-
Yeah wide lens boosts acc by 10% so it is not a lot.
ok. so ive gone with ice beam, hydro pump, focus blast and grass hidden power. i equipped the expert belt so i can beat dragons easier.

You could use Toxic, it'll take a little while but it will eventually kill Jellicent.
