What is a good moveset for Seviper?

0 votes

I'm back and ready for more questions. My Seviper is EV trained in Attack. It knows:

Poison Tail: STAB, high accuracy, good chance for a critical hit and a chance of Poison.

Crunch: Good power, high accuracy, decent chance to lower Def, used to deal with Psychic types.

Aqua Tail: Good power, decent accuracy, used to deal with Ground types.

Glare: Used to parlyze the foe.

Replace HP Dark with Dark Pulse.

Instead of poison Tail, I like poison fang, because it gives the opponet bad poison. But if you like poison tail, that works also. Crunch is good. Aqua Tail is good too(breeding, again!?). Glare can be replaced. How about X-Scizzor? Its a pretty good backup against psychic moves then again, you already have Crunch. Iron Tail might be good too, along with earthquake. Its up to you!

Nope, move tutor. I love that guy. Iron Tail is a nice replacement for Glare.
Cool.:):):):)(dang 12 characters!)

Crunch-Keep this for dealing with Psychic types.Or try TM Dark Pulse.

Poison Tail\Poison Jab-Might Poison the foe.

Toxic-Badly Poisons.Nothing more annoying than being Badly Poisoned.

Aqua tail-Keep it for dealing with Ground types.

Maybe instead of Toxic you could have another Poison type move.
Try Poison Fang,(Bad Poison?)

Seviper w/ Leftovers
Careful nature
200 HP, 56 Defense, 252 Special Defense.
Ability - Shed Skin

Coil
Aqua Tail
Sucker Punch
Rest


Coil boosts his attacking power ( All moves support ) his defense, ( Enough EVs to make his boosts worth while ) and Accuracy ( Aqua Tail is now great Ground coverage. )

Aqua Tail gets an accuracy boost from Coil, making it great coverage.

Sucker Punch brings in boosting and priority, which is always nice to have.

Rest is WAY shortened due to Shed Skin, so I have healing! :D

Seviper @ Life Orb

Trait: Shed Skin

EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe

Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SpA)

  • Poison Jab
  • Earthquake
  • Sucker Punch
  • Aqua Tail

Poison Jab is STAB with decent power.
Earthquake rounds out the coverage nicely by hitting Rock-, Poison- and Ground-types that resists Poison Jab.
Sucker Punch hits Ghosts like Misdreavus who would wall this set, without Sucker Punch.
It also gives Seviper an excellent priority move to use.
Aqua Tail hits Ground types like Golem and Camerupt for massive damage.
If there's a certain threat Seviper should outpseed, Jolly is an alternative.
