Gen V

Whiscash (M) @ Focus Sash

Trait: Hydration

EVs: 40 HP / 252 Atk / 216 Spd

Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)

  • Dragon Dance
  • Waterfall
  • Earthquake
  • Stone Edge

An effective sweeper, due to having some bulk and a good typing. Hydration helps if Rain happens to be up, and is much better than those other useless abilities. Focus Sash prevents it from getting OHKOd, allowing it to get up a Dragon Dance and then start sweeping.

Whiscash @ Life Orb

Trait: Hydration

EVs: 252 SpA / 212 SpD / 44 Spe

Modest Nature (+SpA, -Atk)

  • Rain Dance
  • Rest
  • Hydro Pump
  • Earth Power

Rain Dance is to power up Water STAB and to give it reliable healing in Rest and avoids other statuses like random freeze as well.
Rest is reliable healing because of Rain Dance and Hydration and heals off Life Or damage as well.
Hydro Pump is powerful STAB and Whiscash kind of needs the extra power over Surf because of its mediocre SpA.
Earth Power is the other STAB and has good coverage and rounds out the coverage.
