Whats a good Little Cup moveset for Barboach?

0 votes

I know its not a likely pokemon to use and I'm sure that because of its low stats, even in little cup it would be difficult to use though I've grown rather attached to mine so I was wondering what would be a good moveset for it.
It knows:
Fissure (can be replaced for good water move)
Future sight (good for if it faints)
earth quake (STAB earthquake=painful death :) )
Ice beam (good for grass types)
Holds a focus sash and has the ability anticipation.
Of corse it needs a good STAB water move, i know that, but please any suggestions would be nice ^_^

Barboach (M) @ Eviolite

Trait: Hydration

EVs: Atk, Speed, Hp

Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)

  • Dragon Dance
  • Earthquake
  • Waterfall
  • Rain Dance

EV's support Bulky sweeping, Evoilite gives him bulk.

Dragon Dance is to set up for sweeping, you should try to get 2 in if you can, while Earthquake and Waterfall is dual STAB. Rain dance is there, because with Hydration, that's basically a personally Aromatherapy ( Personally because only you get the benefits ). Using it cures any status that you've gotten, and keeps any other statuses away for 5 turns.
