What is a good moveset for Mantine?

1 vote

Mine has the ability Water Absorb. It knows:

Surf: Good power, high accuracy, STAB, used to deal with Rock types.

Aqua Ring: Heals Mantine. Makes Poison and Burn almost useless.

Air Cutter: Good chance for critical hit, STAB.

Swift: Decent power, doesn't miss.

YOU FORGOT, AGAIN, AN OBVIOUS MOVE. WHERE IS ICE BEAM? I would replace swift for it, its a practically worthless move without STAB. Id say add earthquake, but its not good with mantines incredibly low attack.

Ice Beam-Super effective to dragon types,which water does not do much damage to.

Air Cutter-Chance for a critical hit,STAB.Keep it!

Surf-STAB,good power,good accuacy,deals with Rock types.Keep it!

Earthquake-As Swampert said,it's not good with Mantines low attack.Try EV training it.Deals with Electric types.

Mantyke @ Eviolite
Trait: Water Absorb
EVs: 252 HP / 252 SDef / 4 SAtk
Calm Nature (+SDef, -Atk)
- Aqua Ring/Rest
- Confuse Ray/Sleep Talk
- Toxic/Ice Beam
- Ice Beam/Surf

This thing is probably one of my favourite sets to use on a Mantyke. Its Special Defence stat is awesome, and with the Eviolite boost raising it by 50% it effectively has 180 - yes, 180 - base SDef. Which means at Level 50 with Calm Nature and 252 SDef EVs, it will have approximately 284 SDef. Either use the set on the left - Aqua Ring for healing, Confuse Ray to just be a nice little pain in the butt, Toxic for poisoning, Ice Beam for coverage - or the set on the right - Rest for healing, Sleep Talk to attack while resting, Ice Beam for coverage, Surf for STAB. I recommend the one on the left, I just find that it works better.
