What is a good moveset for Empoleon?

My Empoleon is pretty strong(in my opinion(LVL:67)), and has some good stats. But I don't think it has a good move list. Brine, Bubblebeam, Hydro Pump and Drill Peck. I'm thinking about deleating Bubblebeam with Ice Beam, Blizzard or Avalanche. Would that make it a better Pokemon? Since it would have a wider move type range.

Gen VI

Empoleon @ Assault Vest

EVs: 252 SpAtk / 96 Def / 162 SpDef

Modest Nature (+SpAtk, -Atk)

  • Scald
  • Flash Cannon
  • Grass Knot
  • Ice Beam

I love the typing on this guy. Scald is STAB and has a chance to burn, helping your defenses. Flash Cannon is STAB and is Super Effective against the new Fairy type, who usually appear as special attackers (Sylveon, Florges, etc). Ice Beam is coverage, so is Grass Knot.

Empoleon (M) @ Petaya Berry
Ability: Torrent
EVs: 252 Spd / 252 SAtk / 4 HP
Modest Nature
- Substitute
- Agility
- Brine
- Ice Beam

The SubPetaya set is one of my favorite movesets. The trick to using this set is to use Agility when you predict your opponent will switch out. That way, Empoleon can outspeed a handful of Pokémon (with the exception of Choice Scarf users). Then, you spam Substitute until your HP goes low enough to activate the Petaya Berry (which at the same time will trigger both Torrent and Brine's 130 power). After all these boosts, Empoleon is ready to sweep and can dominate the arena.

Defensive:

King Pingu (Empoleon) @ Leftovers
Ability: Torrent
Calm Nature
EVs: 252 HP / 252 SpD / 4 SpA
-Stealth Rock
-Roar
-Toxic
-Scald

Stealth Rock is... well... Stealth Rock, and Roar gets boosts off of opposing Pokemon as well as forces them to take damage from Stealth Rock. Scald is a nice source of damage, and if you can burn the opponent's physical attackers, your Empoleon will becom annoyingly hard to take out. Toxic provides a nice constant source of damage.
