Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

What is a good moveset for the weird looking Probopass?

4 votes

Mine has the ability Magnet Pull and is EV trained in attack. It knows:

Ice Punch: How?? Decent power, chance to freeze, high accuracy, used to deal with Ground types.


Magnet Rise: Causes immunity to Ground attacks.

Stone Edge: STAB, high power, good chance for critical hit.

I lol'd at the fact that he can punch things. Since when does it even have hands? xD
he probably uses ice punch by freezing one of his compass and throws it at someone lol

Probopass-gyro ball would be perfect for him if he had higher attack, but he can't learn it so...

TOXIC!!- given

block- yeah

protect-stalls even further

taunt/hidden power[grass]/stealth rock/sandstorm/earthquake/magnet rise.-taunt to prevent the foe from taunting you, Hp for type coverage, stealth rock/sandstorm for added damage with toxic, or flash cannon or earthquake should he need to attack with STAb, I don't see the point in giving him moves for type coverage since he won't be able to take them out with his low speed and offensive stats. or MR if you don't want ground attacks.

In my opinion, his offenses are too low for any attacks to be worthwhile.

I'll take a different route because of the way I battle and go with Sandstorm, Toxic, Magnet Rise, Earthquake.
Probopass, one day somebody might think you look cool... but today is NOT THAT DAY!!

Item: Choice-specs
Ability: Sturdy
Nature: Modest
EVs: 252 S.Attack, 128 Defense, 128 S.Defense


Volt-switch is coverage and switch. Earth-power is coverage. Power-gem is STAB or you can run Ancient-power if you want to have some fun. Hidden-power(ice) is coverage. This guy covers 484 Pokemon for Super-effective coverage the rest are neutral. 409 S.Attack will be damaging things. Not the best for this, but this can be a fun set to use and definitely unexpected. You can use Trick-room support and give him a Quiet nature to make this guy a whole lot better though.

Anyone else remember tormenting Mario by pulling his face on the N64?
Those were the days.

This is worse than Entrainment Durant and F.E.A.R. Rattata, worse than any "troll" strategy ever created... And I take no credit.

Stealth Rock- It is a lead so yeah.

Toxic- Wear them down.

Magic Coat- Spore? Bounces Back. Taunt? Bounces Back.

Pain Split- Works with Sturdy. Healing.
