What is a good moveset for Palkia?

3 votes

I was surprised when I found out that this question wasn't asked. Mine knows:

Spacial Rend: High power, decent accuracy, STAB, good chance for a critical hit, deals with Dragon types.
Thunder: High power, good chance to paralyze, deals with Water and Flying types.
Surf: Good power, high accuracy, STAB.
Stone Edge: High power, good chance for a critical hit, deals with Flying types.

Here is another Palkia moveset option:

Spacial Rend: High power, decent accuracy, STAB, good chance for a critical hit, deals with Dragon types.
Surf: Good power, high accuracy, STAB.
Aura Sphere: Good power, doesn't miss.
Earth Power: Good power, high accuracy, chance to lower Sp. Def.
For those who want to have multiple choices. The one in the question is the one I'm using. This is just a good one I saw before.
Hey, your comment edited by anomymous! who is that? you already asking, right? maybe it's...nevermind
I know, weird right?
more than weird... and can't click the name!
This is my idea for a move set
Palkia
Item: Lustrous Orb
Nature: Rash
Trait: I don't need to say it
- Spacial Rend (Hi-Critical Ratio, Covers Dragon weakness)
- Ice beam (Chance to freeze, Deals with Flying, Dragon and the rest that are weak to ice
- Water pulse (Chace to Confuse, Deals With Fire, Ground, and other types weak to Water
- Heal Block (Stops moves such as Rest, Recover, Softboiled, Aqua Ring, and other healing moves
Im thinking about Replacing Heal Block with something else.

Surf-STAB,good power,good accuracy.

Spacial Rend-STAB,great power,good accuracy,deals with dragon types.

Aura Sphere-If you ever come across a steel type,use this,good power,cannot miss.

Earthquake-What did you think?! Everyone knows what Earthquake does!!!

Put on Fireblast instead of Aura Sphere (Hits more pokemon) and change earthquake to Earthpower because earthpower will definetly do more damage than earthquake

Special Rend, for first STAB, and also my moveset too!
Surf, for another STAB, better than any water type moves!
and the other two, i prefer to choose
Earth Power, but why do you choice Earth Power than Earthquake? but, choose the best for yours!
and the last one is yours! The moveset aboev is awesome, Thunder and Stone Edge! That's my opinion...

Earth Power over Earthquake because of higher Sp. Attack stat.

Palkia@ Lustrous Orb
Trait: pressure
• Spacial Rend (must have for Palkia, good chance to crit and deals nice damage)
• Surf (good power, high accuracy, STAB)
• Aura Sphere (handy against steel type, never misses)
• Shadowclaw (deals with psychic, usually those hit realy high due there high Sp. Atk and that stuff, thats why mine knows Shadowclaw, good chance to crit and deals nice damage)

Item: Muscle-band
Ability: Pressure
Nature: Jolly
EVs: 252 Attack, 252 Speed, 6 Hp


Dragon-claw
Stone-edge
Shadow-claw
Bulk-up/Earthquake


Dragon-claw is STAB. Stone-edge is coverage. Shadow-claw is for coverage. Bulk-up is boosting while Earthquake is coverage.

WHERE DID SPACIAL REND GO!!??
Note: PHYSICAL set.
A few creative things to mess with on this set if you want to ( Just alts I like xD )

Lustrous orb and Waterfall instead of Muscle Band and Stone Edge.
Outrage instead of Dragon Claw ( But I DO like risks with those kinds of things.. xD )
When using Earthquake instead of Bulk up, using Life Orb as an item.

Just for those who like to tweak.
it has 2 extra evs on hp. lol

This set is amazing and proven to work.

Palkia @ Choice Scarf
Trait: Pressure
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
- Spacial Rend
- Surf
- Thunderbolt
- Ice Beam/Flamethrower

Spacial rend is powerful STAB and neutrual coverage combined with choice scarf speed. Surf is secondary STAB an punishes rain teams. T-bolt is always good coverage and power. Ice Beam is always nice with bolt-beam combo. Flamethrower also works. Scarf assures nice speed with moves covering the uber tier niceley combined with modest nature a epic sp.attack stat
