What is a good moveset for Absol? (page 2)

3 votes

Mine has the ability Super Luck. It knows:

Swords Dance: Greatly increases attack.

Sucker Punch: Overcomes Absol's lower Speed stat.

Psycho Cut: Deals with Fighting types. Critical hit ratio increased by Super Luck.

Will-o-wisp: Inflics toxic burn which helps with Absol's low Defense stat.

Although its not what you asked, if you give it scopelens or other crit-raising items and spam night slash or Psycho cut the crit- rate is amazing.
Absol (M) @ Life Orb
Trait: Super Luck
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)
- Stone Edge
- Sucker Punch
- Psycho Cut
- Superpower
Both Psycho Cut and Sucker Punch are physical, what are you talking about?
Umm ill be honest and say i dont have a absol.. but looking at it's moves i'd say
Phyco Cut
Night slash
sword dance :/.. or not since absols attacks usually ko... might replace with stone edge ...
when i had absol in emerald mine died in 1 or 2 hits so i dont usually have the time to use sword dance o.o
Decent moveset, Mapleflage1. I'd replace Slash with Sucker Punch, and Psycho Cut with Superpower, and you're good to go.
Thats exactlly my Absol's moveset :D
Why do people ev train it in speed? Its speed only reachs 127 when max out at lvl 50(neutral nature)
VGC is for scrubs.

Setup SD for more damage. Sucker Punch for Priority. Nightslash for STAB, Superpower for priority.

Disclaimer for XY Sprites: I do not own any of these sprites and I took them from PokemonShowdown's Sprite Database, seeing that the database can be accessed, I would guess this wouldnt be copyrighted but who knows?

Superpower doesn't have priority, although it does add good coverage.

This set outta work pretty nice, though i'm still working on some things to balance it out. This is my Absol's set so far in the making.

Absol (M) @ Absolite

EVs: 252 Atk, 252 Spd

-Play Rough
-Swords Dance
-Sucker Punch (?)
-Night Slash

Play Rough is coverage against most fighting-types that would be a problem for Absol, and Dragons, of course. It has a slight accuracy problem but it has a higher base attack power than the common Psycho Cut, and it hits Psychic/Fighting types for SE damage. Swords Dance is for if you ever get a chance to set up. Night Slash is STAB. Sucker Punch.... I plan to remove that but i'm not sure what move to replace it with. Maybe Will-o'-Wisp?
