but ground types have no effect on emolga
point. but lots of ground types have rock moves, THEY get Emolga.
well, my point was mild or rash, since Emolga has no defenses anyways... when switching out, you kinda want it to do a bit, not just scratch them and hope it does more damage than leftovers can recover...
LeBoss does have a point.
i dont think u-turn will be used. seeing that the emolga has choice specs, it either kills or gets killed. u -turn is like a one time only deal; i cant use it more than once. it is JUST TO SWITCH, not to hurt.

My Emolga moveset, may not be the best but works for me.

Emolga (F) @ Focus Sash
Trait: Motor Drive
EVs: 252 HP / 4 SDef / 252 Spd
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
- Protect
- Encore
- Agility/Roost
- Electro Ball

Start off with Protect, if the opponent uses power up move then use Encore on it.
May be forced to switch, so free chance to up your speed with Agility. When your speed is up a fair amount 1 hit them with a + 6 Electro ball, then just sweep from there!

by
Walled by Ground types.
You are a GENIUS!
why put 252 in Hp with a focus sash?
It is still very common to use HP EVs with Focus Sash. The EVs don't stop the item from working; they just mean it isn't required as often. HP EVs are useful in the event Emolga is able to take resisted hits, potentially preventing 2HKOs, etc.

Emolga @ Choice Scarf
Ability: Static
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 SpA / 4 Def
Nature: Lax (+Def, -SpD)
- U-turn
- Volt Switch
- Nuzzle
- Air Slash

He's not nearly fast enough enough to outspeed other sweepers, so Choice Scarf helps.
Both returning moves for returning because that's how I use choice users.
Nuzzle is for paralysis.

Emolga @ Leftovers
Ability: Motor Drive
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Modest Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Thunderbolt
- Charge Beam
- Air Slash
- Hidden Power [Water]

don't know how to set a comment on how it did properly yet, but this got me a straight 15 wins on showdown as my last Pokemon out against three or more Pokemon, excluding rage quitters with more than one Pokemon and disconnects completely excluded. it was so op it taught one guy not to call emolga weak when I let them take down my other five flying types on purpose. please, if anyone here wants a challenge, top my record by one Pokemon finisher in those circumstances where you can't let any other mon win it doing so fails challenge. this was only pulled off in gen 5, but it needs to be beaten for once.

Emolga @ Rocky Helmet
Ability: Motor Drive
Nature: Rash (+SpAtk -SpDef)
EVs: 252 SpA / 252 Spd / 4 HP

-Thunderbolt
-U-turn
-Taunt
-Knock Off

Thunderbolt is your main attacking move. U-turn is to pivot in and out. Taunt to stop setups, and Knock Off to get rid of the opponent's item.

Emolga @ Weakness Policy
Ability: Motor Drive
EVs: 4 Atk / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
Mild / Hasty Nature
- Endure
- Acrobatics
- Thunderbolt
- Energy Ball

Mixed Weakness Policy Emolga set. Endure allows you to take a super effective hit and can allow Weakness Policy to activate, raising your attack and special attack by 2 stages. Acrobatics is STAB and works well when you consume your Weakness Policy. Thunderbolt is also STAB. Energy Ball is to deal with ground types.
