Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

What is a good moveset for Manaphy?

5 votes

The final Pokemon until I get Black Version. Prepare... for... Manaphy!

Surf: Good power, high accuracy, STAB, power increased by both Rain Dance and Tail Glow.

Tail Glow: Increase Sp. Attack, allowing for great power with Tail Glow, STAB, and Rain Dance on the already powerful Surf.

Rain Dance: Powers up Surf, allows for Hydration to take effect mainly for Rest, also stos Sunny Day from ruining Surf.

Rest: Obviously. 100% recovery with no downside due to Hydration.

Well, instead of ice beam you can also add Energy ball/Grass knot for countering Water types, especially other Manaphies.

Surf can be a replacement, Energy Ball can help cover your Rain users.

Rain use.

no STAB??
Doesn't need it really. Ice Beam gets the job done.
No offense, but that just makes you sound stupid. Surf and Ice Beam already have good coverage. Surf is way better than Energy Ball.
