Mine is EV trained in Sp. Attack. It knows:

Extrasensory: Goodpower, high accuracy, chance to cause flinching, used to deal with Fighting types.

Hyper Voice: STAB, good power, high accuracy.

Toxic: Inflicts toxic poison.

Shadow Ball: Good power, high accuracy, decent chance to lower Sp. Def.

Exploud (M) @ Choice Specs
Trait: Scrappy
EVs: 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
- Fire Blast
- Hyper Voice
- Ice Beam
- Focus Blast
Exploud @Leftovers
Ability: Scrappy
EVs: 252 SPATK, 252 HP
Quiet Nature  (+SPATK -Speed)
Boomburst
Thunder fang
Flamethrower
Surf
Well... This is my moveste, isn't perfect, but is useful.
Boomburst have a very high base power and 100% Accuracy. Thunder fang can flinch and paralyze. Flamethrower is good too, and Surf can hit all Pokemons. With high HP it don't need speed. With Scrappy it can hit Ghost types and deal a big damage (Giratina can be defeated normally). Sorry if i don't have a good english, i'm brazilian.

I don't think exploud has the defenses for toxic, maybe use .....EARTHQUAKE!! But I know yours are limited, so maybe crunch, or if you are willing to have the power drop, overheat (unexpected)

A Mixed Sweeper Exploud!

Exploud (M) @ Choice Scarf
Trait: Soundproof
EVs: 128 Atk / 128 SAtk / 252 Spd
Naive Nature (+Spd, -SDef)
- Brick Break
- Crunch
- Hyper Voice
- Extrasensory

Scarf is for more Speed, which this Pokemon needs. Soundproof is for avoiding stuff like Perish Song. Brick Break is for killing things, along with breaking screens. Crunch is for the Ghost types. Hyper Voice is STAB, while Extrasensory kills Fighting types, which usually have low Sp. Defense.

Exploud (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Scrappy
EVs: 220 HP / 8 Atk / 140 Def / 140 SDef
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Circle Throw
- Frustration / Return
- Substitute
- Earthquake


Pretty decent phazer in the lower tiers. Scrappy allows Circle Throw to hits ghosts, and Frustration / Return hits too. Ev's make nice 101 subs, which allows you to hit revenge killers or phaze them. EQ is for coverage.

Hyper Voice (STAB, nice power and accuracy)

Extrasensory (Didn't know that it could learn/breed it; to deal with only weakness)

Surf / Ice Beam / Flamethrower (Why the firetruck can it learn these moves? For ze coverage, also these moves would be kind of unexpected)

Shadow Ball (for to deal with ze ghosts)

EV's: 252 Atk 128 Def 128 S.Def

This one is tough because exploud is equal in attack and special attack.

Hyper Voice or ice beam- if you are in hoenn or you can't get hyper voice then use ice beam

Overheat or fire blast- overheat is a strong move that is very rare. If you don't have overheat then turn to fire blast.

Earthquake- simple, DESTROY

Solar beam- this one is very effective but takes one turn to charge up. If you don't want to wait then use sunny day instead of one of these moves.

Ear Buster (Exploud) (M) @ Choice Specs/Life Orb
Modest Nature (+SpAtt, -Att)/Timid Nature (+Spd -Att)
Ability: Scrappy
EVs: 4HP, 252 SpAtt, 252 Spd

-Boomburst
-Flamethrower/Fire Blast
-Ice Beam/Blizzard
-Focus Blast

Specs STAB Boomburst is simply amazing. 140BP move with no drawbacks. The icing on the cake is that Exploud gets the awesome ability Scrappy, meaning that those pesky ghosts can no longer switch in with impunity.

Flamethrower/Fireblast to roast Steel types switching in predicting Boomburst.

Ice Beam/Blizzard and Focus (Miss) Blast is for much welcomed coverage.

Fire Blast/Blizzard or Flamethrower/Ice Beam is the classic reliability vs power issue, but I lean towards Flamethrower/Ice Beam because of the nerf.

Playing this set is simple. Spam Boomburst, or pick an appropriate move and watch things get major damage.

Boomburst absoulutely DESTROYS everything!

Exploud@Choice Specs
Ability: Scrappy
Nature: Modest
EVs: 252 SAtk / 252 Spe / 6 HP

Boomburst- It's a Hyper Beam without recharge plus STAB and it hits ghost type

Focus Blast- Amgh I abusing Scrappy? I dunno, you tell me.

Overheat- For moar steel coverage.

Surf- For Heatran.

EDIT: Major moveset overhaul. Was a noob back then.

Usage Tips

Exploud is a wall breaker so send him up against physical walls to scare them out and abuse Boomburst. Sticky Web support also helps Exploud drastically. Avoid priority and faster sweepers. Thundurus is amazing for Exploud, controlling speed with Thunder Wave and resisting any fighting type attacks. Also, have a lot of Volt Switchers and U Turners as it makes switching into Exploud easier.
