I'm wondering if I should run Stockpile or Ancient Power on Cradily. My moveset so far is Recover, Toxic, and Earthquake. The EVs are 252HP / 200SpDef / 56Atk with a Careful nature (+SpDef -SpAtk).

Your best option would be to use Stockpile. Your Cradily's EVs are made to where it could resist a few attacks. So with the +3 stages (if used respectively) your Cradily will be able to stall, attack, and inflict Poison on the opponent.

Stockpile didn't add the + defensive bonus til later generations. Unless they used spit up it's practically unusable. I'd go with a reliable STAB and since you're running careful nature I'd go with ancient power. Also I'd ditch earthquake for either amnesia, barrier(egg move) but that's just me. A plus 6 cradily in either defense is pretty good

Go with Stockpile since you are using a Nature that cuts SP. ATT. Simple as that.
