What is a good moveset for Walrein?

2 votes

Mine has the ability Ice Body and is EV trained in Attack. It knows:

Ice Ball: STAB, ends up doing a ton of damage. Used to deal with Grass types.

Hail: Heals Walrein and damages most foes.

Body Slam: Good power, high accuracy, good chance to paralyze.

Waterfall: Good power, high accuracy, decent chance to cause flinching, used to deal with Rock types.

If you want a good staller Go with this set

Walrein @ Leftlovers

EVS : Def / Sp Def

  • Toxic
  • Protect
  • Aqua Ring
  • Hail

The plan is simple, stall your foe to death with this, i recommend that you do this : Hail - Protect - Aqua Ring - Protect - Toxic - Protect and then whatever you want, if you can succesfulyl do this, you can get 3 recoveries (Ice body, leftlovers and aqua ring) and your foe will take the damage from toxic and hail

If you ever want a stall you gotta have max hp and a spread on the def and sp def evs

Walrein (M) @ Leftovers

Trait: Thick Fat
EVs: 248 HP / 252 Def / 8 SDef
Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk)
- Yawn
- Brine
- Ice Beam
- Super Fang

Fairly standard Walrein set, making best use of all of Walrein's nice features. Obviously, this guy is for when you need him in a team that isn't Hail. Which is going to happen a fair amount in NU, seeing as Snover is UU and Sunny Day and Rain Dance are better weather moves to be using. Also that Regice managed to outclass Walrein this Gen. This set uses the awesome combo of Super Fang and Brine. Super Fang gets the HP down to manageable levels. Walrein has decent offense, so with a STAB 130 base power Brine being used on a Pokemon which will likely only have 150-200 HP, you can easily take down the foe. This high base power and hitting off of the half HP allows Walrein to run its EVs all defensively. Odd HP EVs for Stealth Rock and for Spikes. Most of the EVs are put into Defense because Walrein can take Special hits easy with Thick Fat, meaning all that is left is Physical bulk. Ice Beam is for STAB and coverage, getting a x4 hit on Altaria also. And Yawn works great if you have Entry Hazards up. It forces your opponent to take damage or go to sleep. Leftovers is for healing.

As Walreins usually have lightly higher sp. attack, ice beam is better than Ice ball as it has higher accuracy and walreain wont last long enough to bring it to full power...most battles don't last very long, someone is usually KO'd by the 3rd or 4th turn and by then ice ball still wont be at its maxed power.

Wally (M) @ Choice Band

Trait: Thick Fat or Ice Body

EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 Spd

Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)

  • Waterfall
  • Earthquake
  • Avalanche
  • Body Slam / Crunch / Rock Slide / Rock Tomb / Iron Tail

Everyone loves Wally.

Waterfall is your favorite STAB, lets you straight up attack.
Earthquake is boss coverage. While Avalanche makes use of the fact that he isn't amazingly fast, so he gets that super powered Ice STAB if he needs it. And then your coverage options..

Body Slam - My preferred coverage move, gets a lot of neutral blows in, and ( Big reason here ) has a chance to paralyze, which screws sweepers.

Crunch - Can lower defense, meaning he might get some lucky 2KOs in, and a super effective OHKO, it's just there and a available.

Rock Slide - Gets Edge-Quake coverage.. that's it. xD

Rock Tomb - Edge-Quake coverage and can lower speed, making Wally actually go first! Not super reccomended though..

Iron Tail - For those who don't get a crap about accuracy. It can lower defense, gets so-so coverage, not really anything new, though.

I Reccomend Body Slam or Rock Slide.

Rock Slide does give a chance to flinch.
Wailrein is not going to be flinching much.
Walrein doesn't out speed jack crap, meaning if considering it; I'm not going to be looking at a flinch rate, for a slow pokemon.

Walrein
Walrein @ Life Orb/Leftovers

Trait: Ice Body

EVs: 168 HP / 252 SpA / 88 Spe

Modest Nature (+SpA, -Atk)

  • Blizzard
  • Surf
  • Hidden Power Electric
  • Super Fang

Hail tank.
Blizzard is powerful STAB with full accuracy in Hail, hitting Grass types hard and is a powerful attack.
Surf is STAB as well, rounding out the coverage nicely hitting Fire types among other things.
Hidden Power Electric hits Gyarados hard, and hits other Water types super effectively.
Super Fang effectively cuts down the HP of the opponent in half.
The EVs are to outspeed Pokemon with 75 base speed and below by 2 points just in case they want to put 4 EVs in speed, with max special attack for hardest possbile hitting while the rest are dumped into HP for extra bulk.

All your attacks are good but I think you should take out Ice Ball and put in Ice Fang.

Know this is an old question, but

Since your Walrein is Ev attack trained teach it avalanche instead of Ice Ball. Walrein is slow, and that can lead to massive 120 power if opponent attacks first!

Walrein, is great for coverage pokemon. Mine is built around Speed which is very unexpected.

Ice Beam - STAB and great for against ground and grass
Earthquake - Great against the fire and electrics you come across
Dive - stall and STAB
Rock Slide - great for against flying and fire and bug types.

answered Apr 17, 2012 by Lucario92
the reason is built around speed is because of its nature. I have talked to the person in the train station on the game and that's what the person said is the best part of my Walrein.
That just means his best IVs are in Speed. That is not going to make him a great sweeper. His base speed is too low.
I was new... I was only playing Main Game... Wasn't playing Metagame... I don't use Walrein anymore. But I could probably find a better use for him.
