What is a good moveset for Magmortar?

5 votes

Mine knows:

Lava Plume: Good power, high accuracy, STAB, good chance to burn.

Focus Blast: High power, chance to lower Sp. Def, used to deal with Rock types. Also deals with Steel and Normal types.

Thunderbolt: Good power, high accuracy, chance to paralyze, used to deal with Water types.

Taunt: Stops the foe from using Stat moves.

Magmortar @ Life Orb
Trait: Vital Spirit
Modest nature (+SpAtk, -Atk)
EVs: 252 SpAtk, 252 Spd, 4 HP

  • Flamethrower
  • Thunderbolt
  • Focus Blast/HP Grass
  • Psychic

Special sweeper right here. Flamethrower is obvious, while Thunderbolt covers water types. Focus Blast has some good coverage, but has 70 accuracy, HP Grass covers rock and ground, plus the water/ground types (I would choose HP Grass). Psychic has some good coverage, and can cover those fighting types that carry Earthquake /Rock Slide/Stone Edge.
