Cotton Guard

Why? Ampharos has good bulk and Cotton Guard can make it annoying af against physical attackers.
A good set:
Ampharos @ Ampharosite
EVs: [180 Hp/200 Sp.atk/128 Def] / [180 Sp.atk/100 Def/128 Hp/100 Sp.def]
Nature: Modest
Ability: Static ---> Mold Breaker
-Cotton Guard
-Dragon Pulse
-Hidden Power [Water]/Hidden Power [Grass]
This set works amazing. Modest because this thing destroys at base 165 sp.atk. This is meant to take physical hits but works better under Light Screen support.
Hope I helped!

How is it a secret if you showed it to all the people who read this?
The user's original name was "It's a secret," so that was their way of signing the set lol

Honestly, with Ampharos's high defenses, I don't think you need a defensive move at all, but you should rather use Agility. This is the moveset I'd use:

Ampharos @ Ampharosite
Ability: Static -> Mold Breaker
Modest Nature
252 SpA / 252 Spe / 4 HP
-Dragon Pulse
-Hidden Power Fire

Why HP Ground?
What does Fire cover?
It just has the best neutral coverage, not to mention it covers Steel.
I really can't believe u put hp ground at first,but it also covers steel so it's understandable .
It also covers Electric, and Ground is just a really good attacking type, too. Why do you think so many Pokemon run Earthquake?
