Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

What is a good moveset for Lickilicky?

4 votes

Mine has the ability Oblivious and has amazingly high Attack and Amazingly low Speed. It has no moves besides Zen Headbutt (which is there for Fighting weakness) with base power below 100 most of the time. It knows:

Zen Headbutt: Good power, decent accuracy, decent chance to cause flinching (although that will almost never matter,) used to deal with Fighting types.

Gyro Ball: High power with low Speed. You know the Pokemon has low Speed when Wild Lickitung sometimes hold the Lagging Tail (mine doesn't, it holds the Shell Bell.)

Return: High damage because my Lickilicky is so happy. Also high accuracy and STAB.

Power Whip: Where there's a whip there's a way (sing it). Anybody know what that is from. No? Oh well. This move has high power.

Lickilicky (M) @ Choice Band
Trait: Cloud Nine
EVs: 160 HP / 252 Atk / 48 Def / 48 SDef
Brave Nature (+Atk, -Spd)
- Hammer Arm
- Power Whip
- Earthquake
- Return
This is my weather killer Licky, it can really mess up any weather instigator. Hammer Arm works for Tyranitar and Abomasnow, and provides a 5-type coverage (including Ferrothorn and Blissey). Power Whip can take care of Hippowdon or Politoed (or Kyogre and Groudon, but let's be real). Earthquake demolishes Ninetales, while providing the best physical move in the game. Return is for STAB, and with Choice Band, it can provide some serious damage.
Cloud Nine ensures you don't get OHKO'd by STAB weather boosted moves and Licky doesn't take residual damage from Sandstorm and Hail . EVs: Max out its attack, and even out the defenses with the rest of your EVs.
This guy is best used on your own weather teams, as it stops the opposing team from keeping their weather around, and you can set up your own freely. Given Licky's low speed and wide coverage, he actually makes a decent choice bander regardless of opposing weather.

Return/earthquake-good power, STAB

toxic-nuff said

gyro ball- low speed, works well

zen headbutt- deal with fighting types

answered by
Ah, what the heck, Lickilicky is good enough to get Earthquake. However, as I said to Swampert (although you probably won't find it in my glorification of Charizard) mine doesn't have high enough defense for Toxic.
True, I originally had a different move for it.

WHERES TOXIC?? LICKILICKY HAS GREAT DEFENSE AND NO TOXIC! Heres what I would use. Gyrao Ball(same as you), Zen Headbutt(weakness). Return or Power Whip(whichever oneyou like more.

That works great for normal Lickilicky's, but not for mine. Mine actually has horrid defensive stats for a Lickilicky (mine was before I knew about EV training. It was back in my Firered with my Charizard that stands before all today destroying everything in its path, blazing through the toughest of battles with barely a scratch or even a Slash on it, destroying Water types with ease, and all the while able to win the Pokeathlon with its majestic power. I forgot what I was originally talking about, oh right Lickitung!
All right, are you not choosing best answers on your movesets?
Also, if your lick has bad defense, your moveset is good except maybe add Earthquake.
Waiting for both you AND DT to answer before choosing Best answer.
Wha abou your "obamasnow", Weavile, and Magnazone questions? I answered those and DT, too!
Oh, I didn't realize that you did answer them. You see, I can't get e-mail from the address that I gave because I gave my school e-mail, which doesn't work very well. As such, I can't tell when my questions are answered. I'll get right on it.

This set is killer:

Lickilicky (M) @ Choice Band
Trait: Oblivious
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Def
Brave Nature (+Atk, -Spd)
- Explosion
- Brick Break
- Earthquake
- Fire Punch

Ever tried a Choice Banded Explosion? It's killer. Explosion is for a last ditch effort if you're about to die. Evs give it lots of bulk. Brick Break is for breaking of screens, and just a good move to have. Earthquake is for killing things while making sure that you can hit Steel types hard. Fire Punch is mainly for Gengar, since it resists the rest of the set, while hitting Bug/Grass types resisting most of this set. You could have pretty much any Physical move in there.

STAB Banded Explosion is awesome

Item: Choice-specs
Ability: Cloud-nine/Own-tempo
Nature: Modest
EVs: 252 Hp, 252 S.Attack, 6 Defense


Ice-beam
Thunderbolt
Flamethrower
Surf/Shadow-ball


Specs set, he has a pretty good base S.Attack. Ice-beam, Thunderbolt, Flamethrower they are all for coverage as is Surf/Shadow-ball whichever you choose.

Note: You could go for the inaccurate but powerful version of Blizzard, Thunder, Fire-blast.

Lickilicky @ Lagging Tail
Trait: Own Tempo
Nature: Impish
ZenHeadbutt ( Coverage)
Gyro Ball ( Goes great with Lagging Tail especially with low speed anyway)
Rock Climb ( STAB + HM move )
Ice Puncy ( some variety )
Hope this helps!

answered by
Returns probably better than rock climb but also lagging tail does not lower speed but it does give you -7 priority so if I had a maxed out deoxys speed with 504
If it was holding lagging tail it would go last but would still have 504 speed
Therefor not raising power of gyro ball

Lickilicky @ Life Orb
Ability: Own Tempo/Cloud Nine
EVs: 244 HP / 252 Atk / 12 SpD
Brave Nature
- Belly Drum
- Power Whip/ Zenn Headbutt
- Hammer Arm
- Return/ Double-Edge

This is a great Trick Room set! With minimal Speed (even 0 IVs in it) this will strike first and hard with a trick room attack - Guess what? Hammer Arm lowers your Speed even more! Life Orb is for Belly-Drum boosted Return, doing major damage, but keep in mind that it could have Sitrus Berry or Leftovers to heal, too! Enjoy! I'll name him Lick-a-Belly!

Toxic Troll

Lickilicky @ Leftovers
Ability: Oblivious
EVs: 252 Def / 252 Sp. Def. / 4 Speed or HP
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Att)
Max IV's HP/Def/Sp. Def/Spd. AND Min IV Att
- Substitute
- Rest?
- Toxic/Dragon Tail? (Beware Fairies though)
- Protect

When I looked at this guys stats, abilities and move pool, I saw more Defensive potential than Offensive, so try this: Minimise your Attack to minimise confusion damage because being confused isn't as bad as not being able to use anything, which is why this set has Oblivious and not Own Tempo. I'm not confident about rest as I haven't had much time with this set yet. This would probably work best after some entry hazards have been set, and even better if you can baton pass in some buffs and/or ingrain and/or aqua ring (and yes that can be done).
