Brick Break: STAB for electric types.
Surf Hydro Pump: There both good.
Ice Beam: Grass types are domed.
Hydro Cannon: Good water move.

Blastiose @ Leftovers
Ability: Torrent
252 HP/ 108 Def / 144Sdef
Calm Nature (+Sp Def, - Attack)
-Rapid Spin

Special Bulky with Rapid spin to get rid of entry hazords and toxic to stall with also roar to switch out Unwanted Foes. This goes great with Blissy because Blastiose cant heal himself so you can Wish with Blissy then switch to Blastiose when Blastoise low on HP!

Physical set
Item: Leftovers
Ability: rain dish
Adamant nature
EVs: 252 attack, 122 defense, 122 sp. defense, 12 hp.

Aqua jet - STAB, great priority move
Earthquake - one of the best moves in the game :)
Dragon Tail - Great move for such a defensive Pokemon.
Toxic - Good and reliable status move.

I use this set on the Blastoise on my rain team and he kicks ass.

this set is for b/w and is great but does rely a little on special attack but could be physical attacker but lets get to the moves

item/ leftovers ability torrent which means water moves boost 50% when the Pokemons at red or low yellow hp

252hp 102sp.atk 75def 75sp.def 4spd

scald, hydro pump -scald can burn its STAB 80 base power its a special move as well as HYDRO PUMP is 120 base power which is just op and very good offensivly overall I reccomend scald cause it can burn

rapid spin-get rid of stealth rocks spikes toxic spikes sadly only 20 base power not very strong

HP (hidden power), ice beam-i would recomend grass or fighting other than that this set is a little offensive ice beam to take on dragons or to take on grass types

toxic-AMAZING move poisens and builds up more and more damage each turn and I said this is an offensive set

this Pokemon have cannons on its back is ready to shoot anything at anything and isn't afraid to do it! blastiose is notable of it's defenses so it can fire from behind a wall and has move that can still be used in a drawn out battle so my moveset would be

  • hydro pump/surf(STAB)
  • flash cannon(lowers sp.def to ensure attacks hit harder)
  • icy wind(deals with grass and lowers speed. perfect for drawn out battles)
  • aqua ring(ensures you stay in battle to blast your opponent(pun intended blast, blastiose? lol:)

Balanced Blastoise Moveset

Blastoise (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Torrent
EVs: 4 HP / 126 Atk / 126 SAtk / 252 SDef
Relaxed Nature (+Def, -Spd)
- Ice Beam (Coverage)
- Surf/Scald (STAB w/ power or Status)
- Iron Defense (Makes up for lost EV's in Defense)
- Skull Bash (Increases Defense plus awesome move for Blastoise)

252 SDef is good for defending against Special super-effective moves since theres many special type moves in the electric/grass categories. Iron Defence and Skull Bash even out your Defence stats quickly since Blastoise can take a few T-bolts etc. while setting up. Ice Beam is there to defend against Grass and is a solid move to have for coverage. Surf and Scald are there for STAB but it depends if you want the power or the status effect to help out your defense. Both are very accurate with 100% accuracy.

Personally, this set works best for me in SS and I haven't seen anyone else post this answer. It's my first time so... here we go!!

Trait: Torrent
Rapid Spin/ Ice beam- rapid spin for ridding of rocks for support, ice beam for coverage
Protect- helps stall and recover life
Toxic- wears down the opponent
Aqua ring- gains more life and helps to stall

Blastoise is LITERALLY a water tank.

Role: Wall Breaker

Nature: Adamant

Item: Float Stone


-Rapid Spin (getting rid of entry hazards)

-Aqua Ring (healing over time)

-Waterfall (STAB, chance of flinching)

-Brick Break (breaks Light Screen and Reflect, coverage)

I've always been a fan of Blastoise. Hope this helped!

Blastoise (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Torrent
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Def / 252 SDef
Calm Nature (+SDef, -Atk)
- Rest
- Toxic
- Protect
- Water Pulse

Here we have a basic Tank/Annoyer set for Blastoise. Toxic wears the opponents HP down each turn. Protect helps Toxic do its thing + Keeps Blastoise alive with Leftovers. Rest is when you have bad health and need to heal. Water Pulse is STAB + 20% chance of confusing the opponent.
