What is a good moveset for Lunatone?

Mine knows:

Ice Beam: Good power, chance to freeze, high accuracy, used to deal with Grass types.

Psychic: Good power, chance to lower Sp. Def, high accuracy, STAB.

Heal Block: Stops the foe from using healing moves.

Cosmic Power: Used to raise defensive stats.

Hhahahahahhahahhahhahhah. Why don't you use the same moveset as your brother, as I answered in "the Ultimate Battles".

In other words.
Psychic(strong STAB)
Ice Beam(AWESOME MOVE!)
Stone Edge(AWESOME STAB)
Shadow Ball(good move to lower special defense good power and acc)

EDIT: You could Also add in Toxic, if you think it will work better than Stone Edge.

Toxic would be useful. I'll take it.
I think shadow ball is better than heal block

Lunatone @ Leftovers/Life Orb

Trait: Levitate

EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SpA

Quiet Nature (+SpA, -Spe)

  • Trick Room
  • Psychic
  • Grass Knot
  • Ice Beam

Trick Room takes advantage of low speed, som of Lunatone's teammates should also benefit from Trick Room.
Psychic is STAB.
Grass Knot finishes off pesky waters, and gives coverage.
Ice Beam is used to hit flying types hard, and nice coverage.

Man... 3rd gen is so forgotten!

Lunatone
Ability: Levitate

Moonblast/Psychic- Moonblast outweighs Psychic in terms of coverage since the only bonus to it is Poison and STAB but I'm sure you have something on your team with Earthquake, right? Not only that, Moonblast covers a lot more threats like Dark and Dragon. And since 6th gen lowered the power of a lot of popular moves INCLUDING Psychic, Moonblast is preferred.

Shadow Ball- Useful coverage since 6th gen brought back some old friends like a specific yellow spoon master who now has a beard(Alakazam) and amplified a certain evil shadow Pokemon(Gengar). So... yeah! Shadow Ball is really useful.

Charge Beam- Not only is the boost to special attack useful, but the coverage against water and flying types like Greninja and Talonflame make it really worth it. And Grass Knot isn't the best since no boost, too many heavy Pokemon resist it, and it is just not reliable on Lunatone.

Rock Polish/Calm Mind/filler- Use it when you can for max sweeping potential. Ice Beam is a bit redundant now so use your imagination when replacing Rock Polish/Calm Mind.

Lunatone has no special Rock attack just like Solrock has no physical Psychic attack is a useful fact when doing movesets for this guy. Lunatone can pull off a Modest, Timid, and Calm nature so it is a matter of taste. 252 HP/128 SAtk/128 Spe for EVs.
