Mine has the ability Magnet Pull. It knows:

Thunderbolt: Good power, high accuracy, STAB, chance to paralyze, type coverage.

Flash Cannon: Good power, high accuracy, STAB, chance to lower Sp. Def. Also deals with Rock types.

Substitute: Protects Magnezone.

Magnet Rise: Makes Magnezone immune to Ground type attacks.

gravity removes resistance against ground type moves and lowers evasion, making thunder and zap cannon extremely lethal, and provides coverage against water

This is a strategy for Magnemite in 1v1 or just regular singles (any tier).

Magnemite @ Oran Berry
Level: 1
Trait: Sturdy
EVs: None
Serious Nature
- Toxic
- Recycle
- Protect
- Not Needed

You probably know how this works already. You use Toxic first, and you will hang on with sturdy and get healed by the Oran Berry. Next, alternate between Recycle and Protect. With the Oran Berry Recycle is like rest with no sleeping. It's fun to play with and it makes people rage quit sometimes if you can't do Toxic.

I just read al the answers of the others, I looked up his moveset and a have made a conclusion.
The best moveset for Magnezone you can have is:

  1. Magnet Rise (Covers Ground Weakness for 5 turns)
  2. Flash Cannon (STAB)
  3. Thunderbolt (STAB)
  4. Hidden Power[Water] (Water would be perfect because than you would have a counterattack to Ground and Fire weakness)

Or you could not go for Hidden Power if you want a stronger electric type move:

  1. Magnet Rise (Covers Ground Weakness for 5 turns)
  2. Flash Cannon (STAB)
  3. Lock-On (Makes sure the next move will hit his opponent)
  4. Zap Cannon (Use Lock-On before this move because the accuracy of Zap Cannon is 50!)

Magnezone will still have Fighting weakness, he cannot learn a flying or psychic attack to counter.
