Since his Speed isn't the greatest, and he can go Attacking and Defensive, is Curse Goodra usable? The reason why is a received a shiny Goodra with Curse at max PP through Wonder Trade. Now I kind of want to use Curse with a Goodra. Any ideas how it can be used?

Trick Room

You can take advantage of his low Speed by slotting Goodra in a TR Team.
A Physical Goodra is quite good only having 10 Base Stat difference compared to his SpA Stats.

A Moveset you might want to consider :

Goodra @ Leftovers/Sitrus Berry/Lum Berry
Ability: Sap Sipper
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def/4 Atk
Careful Nature
- Curse
- Rest/Earthquake
-Sleep Talk / Poison Tail
- Dragon Tail

This set can make Goodra an annoying wall to take down, Sap Sipper Prevents Leech Seed and Lefties can provide solid recovery. Lum Berry is good option if you aren't going for a Rest-Talk Set.

When using a TR Team remember that you have 4 turns in which to quickly deliver heavy damage and that a Set-Up can be folied quite easily

Thanks! I think I'm going to use Earthquake and Poison Tail though, over ResTalk.

It can be very good
with curse simultaniously boosting His atk and Def he will become more tanky physicaly and lay out heavy physical damage.
His Spdef is already way high so you wont have to do much to it either.

[email protected] Helmet/Lefties
Sap Sipper/Gooey
252 def 252 hp 4spdef or 252 atk over hp if you want.
Outrage/Dragon Claw
Rest/Power Whip/EQ/Aqua Tail/Fire Punch
one from above that wasnt chosen

Rest is good for Rocky Helmet set so you have sustain but if youd rather he has a broad movepool to choose from and excellent coverage.
