Good, but you could add Ice Beam, Or Surf, or Signal Beam, as Ice Shard only has 60 power.

Great for most Dewgong's. However, mine is EV trained in attack.

Dewgong (M) @ Icy Rock

Role: Hail tank

Trait: Ice Body

EVs: 252 HP / 80 Def / 152 SAtk / 24 SDef

Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)

  • Hail
  • Aqua Ring
  • Surf
  • Blizzard

Touching Story of Trachy's, Love to read it.

Well, Speaking of Trachy, this is the Hail version of his set in a way.

Setting up his Own Hail being in a low tier, and then Aqua Ring, then he can Tank along with Blizzard and Surf.

I love this set! This makes Dewgong a monster!

Dewgong! Abomasnows Assistant!

Ability: Ice Body Nature: Bold (+ Def. - Att. ) Item: Leftovers Ev's: HP: 166 Def.:166 Sp. Def.:166

Aqua Ring
Frost Breath

This is just an amazing set! First your lead needs to be an Abomasnow with the icy rock, then switch out to this monster! First you set up aqua ring. Then every turn you can get HP back from the Ice body ability, Leftovers AND aqua ring! You will get A LOT of your HP back every turn. Then you start setting up Stockpiles so you can set up and make your defenses sky high. Then you can use Frost breath which in Gen. Vl, it is stronger than Blizzard/ it is a critical hit every time to. Brine is STAB and if you got your opponents HP down to half, it will do double.

Rain abuser. ( If you like abusing lower tier pokemon in OU, this is for you)

Suggested item: leftovers
Suggested abiltiy: hydration

Dive-STAB; lets him stall out.

Toxic-Stalls out and lets him do damage.

Rest-Cures status and restore health.

Aqua Ring-Gives him more health.

Again, this isn't the best set, but it's still pretty cheap.

Gen V

Dewgong (M) @ Damp Rock

Trait: Hydration

EVs: 244 HP / 4 Atk / 8 Def / 252 SDef

Careful Nature (+SDef, -SAtk)

  • Rest
  • Rain Dance
  • Waterfall
  • Ice Shard

Since this is going to be NU, you won't have instant Rain access (and I don't get why you would use this guy up there in OU with Politoed.) So why not set up the Rain yourself? You can then be fairly defense with the EVs given and Rest. Waterfall gets STAB and is boosted by Rain, so you don't need to have so much EVs in Attack. Ice Shard is for priority.

Double/Triple battle

Dewgong (M) @ Icy Rock
Trait: Ice Body
EVs: 160 HP / 252 SAtk / 96 SDef
Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
- Surf
- Blizzard
- Hail
- Hidden Power [Electric]

Surf is STAB that hits multiple foes, as is Blizzard. Dewgong doesn't have much going for it, so I chose to have it be a Hail user. HP Electric is coverage.

Dewgong (F) - Iron Ball

Role: Trick Room Tank

Trait: Thick Fat

EVs: 252 HP / 252 ATK / 6 SP. DEF

Brave Nature (+Atk, -Speed)

Drill Run - Covers Rock and Electic and is a great move anyway
Aqua Tail/ Dive- STAB
Icicle Spear/ Ice Shard- STAB
Fling - 130 base power with Iron Ball its good for pyschics and ghosts

This Moveset is for a Trick room team however Brave could be swaped for Adamant to make a Normal Tank

This is my first ever moveset hope it helps someone :)

It depends on what you're using Dewgong for,but I have a moveset for stalling:

Nature: Sassy or Relaxed Ability: Hydration Ev's: 252-Special Defense 252-Special Attack 6-HP

Item: Damp Rock or Leftovers

Rain Dance: Powers up water moves/pairs with Hydration

Surf/Aqua Tail: STAB and Increased power from Rain Dance

Rest: Heals fully and cures status problems/pairs with Hydration and Rain Dance waking up dewgong in the end of the turn

Ice Beam/Sheer Cold/Encore: Cover up against grass types/Extra stall time

A good move set for dewgong would like this

Ability: thick fat, just to tank some fire and ice hits even tho it’s not effective

Held item: life orb or eviolite, it’s gonna be a tank hitter so this is a great option

Ev’s: 252 Hp / 128 Special Defense / 128 defense

Iv’s: 5x31, all 31 except speed

Moves: aqua ring, just to heal up

         Dive, amazing STAB move and does great damage
         Drill run, keeps you away from the rock and electric types,great move
         Ice beam, again great STAB move and does a lot of damage
