Blissey has higher tiering and higher placement on OU and National Dex's viability rankings.
Smogon's viability rankings aren't always coming as everyone making those sets aren't always for PS!.
Still though, most people agree on the fact that Blissey is the superior blob
Better argument maybe Bliss is the higher evo? And "Movesets for any of its pre-evolutions can also be shared on this thread."
I'm gonna take this to meta.

Here's a moveset for a Blissey in the role of stalling! ~

Blissey @ Leftovers
Ability: Natural Cure
Bold Nature
EVs: 252 Def / 200 HP / 58 SpD
- Toxic (Of course! For the actual stall ~)
- Soft-Boiled (What's a Blissey without Soft-Boiled?)
- Protect (The greatest stalling move ever! This can also stall one turn for lefties to heal you!)
- Flamethrower (For pesky Steel types that won't take the Toxic!)

1 attack move? Bit risky.
It is risky, but this set is not for attacking at all.
You could always replace Protect with Seismic Toss or something; I use this set to stall.
OK, i realise this might be a bit late to say, but, what about poison types or Heatran? (Flash Fire)
or a radom Crobat or gengar with mean look? wait to die?
Wait to die? Why not switch out?
I said, gengar/crobat w/ mean look...-.-
flamethrower is a no-no because of its low sp. atk. Seismic toss would be better for taking em out cuz if it is level 100 it will always do 100 damage.

Geez, you people have very selfish Blisseys. Here's mine:

Blissey (F) @ Leftovers
Ability: Natural Cure
EVs: 200 HP / 176 SpA / 132 SpD
Calm Nature (+SDef, -Atk)
- Ice Beam
- Thunderbolt
- Wish
- Heal Bell

Basically, this is a Cleric Bliss, which got an upgrade going into Gen V. Wish in Gen V now heals 50% of the user's HP, even when switching to another Pokemon, on this Blissey, that is 350 HP; enough to fully heal just about anything on an average team. So the idea for this Bliss is to switch into a Spec attacker, and Wish on the likely switch. Heal Bell is one of my favourite moves, especially with the influx of Toxic users, Will-o-Wisp, and Thunder Wave ferro. The Bolt-Beam combo works well for Blissey, as a lot of Special attackers are Water, Dragon, or Grass types, and it hits a few more that aren't.
EVs give it 701 HP (enough to take 8 Seismic Tosses, and heal 350 HP), 230 SpAtk, and 372 SpDef. Natural Cure is the best ability on Bliss, if someone tries to use Toxic, or put Blissey to sleep, just switch in a new Pokemon, problem solved, and Bliss is good to go again.

Here is a Chansey variation of the same set:

Chansey (F) @ Eviolite
Ability: Natural Cure
EVs: 240 HP / 248 Def / 16 SpD / 4 Spe
Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk)
- Seismic Toss
- Toxic
- Heal Bell
- Wish
Possibly a better set, it has the same Cleric base, same HP, but a higher defenses and a more stall-like approach to offense. Seismic Toss will always do 100 damage (at level 100), and Toxic will kill the opponent slowly, or force a switch for you to Wish.
The Eviolite give Chansey 375 SpDef, and 217 Def (Blissey's is 56, 130 Max), and it still has 701 HP, it can take hits all day, and is actually better than Blissey in most cases. I throw 4 Speed on the EVs mainly as filler, but also so it won't speed tie with other Chanseys, this thing is popular.

Chansey has so good defense at 252 HP 252 Def Bold it's annoying.
Hahaha, 701 hp, just one more hp can make you survive a seismic toss :D
i find it funny this guy is admitting to hacking, in case you didnt know there are only a max of 20 wish chansey's received that were distributed from the nyc event, in other words its next to impossible to have both a wish chansey and a wish blissey, as to why only 20, no one really knew the event happened and it only lasted a few weeks, if he said softboiled instead of wish on at least on of them id believe they went to the event. congrats tho for doing what others of your kind wont do. adios
Don't call hacks if you don't know what you're talking about. Plenty of the sets here are made for Showdown, where you can use anything so long as it is legal. You don't need to own anything in-game to play Showdown, it's just a battle sim.

Blissey (F) @ Leftovers

Role: Sweeping Tank
Ability: Serene Grace
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SpA / 252 Spd
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
- Aromatherapy
- Charge Beam
- Ice Beam
- Soft-Boiled


Sweepish Bliss, It's fairly uncommon.

Aromatherapy makes you decently tolerant to Poison and Burns and Para-hax, due to it only taking a turn. Charge Beam is amazing with Serene Grace, charging up Blissey's Special Attack to be total Boss hood. Ice Beam provides the Bolt Beam coverage, and Soft-Boiled for that quick healing.

Nobody put a PURE offensive Blissey. I'll put mine.

Blissey

Blissey @ Choice Specs
Ability: Serene Grace
EVs: 252 SpA / 252 Spe / 4 SpD
Modest Nature
- Hyper Voice
- Psychic
- Charge Beam
- Ice Beam

Choice Specs brings its Special Attack to reasonable levels. Hyper Voice is STAB and has decent power. Psychic is coverage against Fighting types. Charge Beam + Serene Grace raises its Special Attack almost all the time while Ice Beam and Charge Beam together form the BoltBeam combo.

Charge beam ALWAYS boosts with serene grace. Honestly I do not see how specs helps you here.
Well.... It gives more Special Attack? :P
wouden't Expert belt be better?

Blissey (F) @ Leftovers
Ability: Natural Cure
EVs: 128 Def / 252 HP / 4 SpA / 124 SpD
Calm Nature
- Block
- Toxic
- Flamethrower / Protect
- Soft-Boiled / Wish
Say hello to my famous Block Blissey! This guy leaves your opponent screaming in terror!
This thing sets up by using Block or Toxic first. If they are Physical, you want the Toxic. If they can't one-shot you, you can then use Ze Core. Block. Now they are trapped! If they are immune to Toxic, you can use Flamethrower. Or, if your want this guy to be 100% Wall, you can have it learn Protect. So I hope you like Blissey le Block.

Blissey @ Leftovers
Ability: Natural Cure
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4SpD
Nature: Calm (By having a +SpD nature, it will have high enough SpD so you wont have to be training that stat too much, 4 EVs is enough)

-Seismic Toss (Used for damaging opponent)
-Rest (Since she is likely to move last, use Rest after she took a hit and switch her in the party right after and Natural Cure heals her status problem which is sleep)
-Aromatherapy (Support your team)
-Light Screen (Support your team)

I like this set. I will take it into consideration, though you should use Reflect instead of Aromatherapy for Dual-Screening purposes.

Blissey @ Heavy-Duty Boots
Ability: Natural Cure
EVs: 252 Def / 252 SpD / 4 HP
Bold Nature
- Seismic Toss
- Stealth Rock
- Teleport
- Soft-Boiled

This pink blob doesn't take any damage when entering hazards while being a hazard setter at the same time. Seismic Toss is to do damage equal to the user's level, it means it does fixed damage and doesn't get affected by the Bold Nature. Teleport so Blissey can work as an excellent pivot to sponge in special attacks, and maybe some attacks, because of Blissey's amazingly high HP and decent bulk. Soft-Boiled is for direct access to recovery. Any Pokemon, sweeper or not sweeper would be a good teammate for Blissey, as it can pivot the sweeper safely into the battle field.

Hope you like this moveset :).

Soft-Boiled is good, but how about Wish? If you use Teleport after Wish, you can switch into one of your pokemon and heal them for free

Blissey @ Leftovers / Heavy-Duty Boots
Ability: Natural Cure
Bold Nature
EVs: 252 Def / 252 HP / 4 SpD
IVs : 0 Atk
- Soft-Boiled
- Teleport
- Shadow Ball / Seismic Toss
- Toxic / Seismic Toss

Gen 8 OU Special Sponge

Soft Boiled is a no brainer for Blissey.
Starting gen 8 LGPE, Teleport has been really good for pivoting, because of its -6 priority, effectively allowing Blissey to tank a hit or predict a switch and bring in a fast Pokemon with virtually no risk.
Shadow Ball is a niche check to Ghost Types: namely, Dragapult.
Seismic Toss does a flat 100 damage in gen 8 OU, which is not bad chip damage.
Toxic is like Seismic Toss, but it forces switches and has less relevant immunities.

Blissey (F) @ Leftovers

- Psychic

by
I just have to ask, why fire blast!?!
I agree, why Fire Blast?  Flamethrower has waay more accuracy and PP.
Fire blast is more powerful
Honestly, whether you want Fire Blast or Flamethrower is up to how much of a risk taker you are, in my opinion. As for myself, though, I would choose Flamethrower to be on the safe side.

Blissey (F) @ Wide Lens / X Accuracy
Ability: Serene Grace
EVs: 252 HP / 4 SpA / 252 SpD
Timid Nature (+Speed, -Atk),

-Sing
-Dream Eater
-Icy Wind
-Soft-Boiled / Focus Blast

This strategy focuses on Blissey's ability Serene Grace, which doubles secondary effects chance of happening. Since http://www.serebii.net/attackdex-dp/sing.shtml says that Sing's sleep inducing effect is a secondary effect, then it would get better accuracy, Icy Wind surely lowers a foe's Speed, which means you go faster than them after a while. Dream Eater also recovers HP. Soft-Boiled can be replaced by Focus Blast for those Dark types who are imune to Dream Eater, plus there will be a 20% chance of the foe's Special Defense lowering. For the items, Wide Lens gives better accuracy for Focus Blast and Sing. So does X Accuracy, since you dont need to switch from battle, left over (I dont think you need it so much, since you still recover HP by moves). Hope this helps.

i know this is old but first serene grace doesnt boost accuracy and x accuracy may only be used by a trainer and finally icy wind always lowers speed

MAH GAURDIAN ANGEL (Blissey) (F) @ Leftovers
Trait: Natural Cure
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SAtk
Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk)
- Wish
- Thunder Wave
- Attract
- Water Pulse/Seismic Toss

Thunder Wave just does the job. Wish is healing. Attract is just boss. Then I would prefer Water Pulse for confusion on top of T-wave and Attract, but go for Seismic Toss if you want. Serene Grace is a option, but I'm using Natural Cure for Toxic stallers. Do 4 SpD EVs for Seismic Toss.

Have fun :D

You should also add in sweet kiss along with water pulse for a sure chance of confusion, as long as it hits. Water pulse still only has a 60% chance.
Blissey isn't made to attack, it's made to stall and to pass on enormous Wishes.

Blissey (F) @Leftovers
Ability: Serene Grace
252 Def / 252 SpD / 4 SpA
Calm Nature (+SDef, -Atk)

  • Ice Beam
  • Toxic
  • Protect
  • Calm Mind

Ice Beam has good power, high accuracy, and a higher chance of freezing with Serene Grace! Then Toxic is for the usual Blissey annoyer. Protect is for KILLING with Toxic. Calm Mind to raise the Special Defense stat as well as Special Attack, making Ice Beam a lot more powerful!

Are u satisfied now?!?!? I did ALL the stuff that a good moveset has!
Yes, but don't go with protect. It's just a waste when you can heal with soft-boiled and make Blissey last longer. Then it can kill your opponent with full health every time!
lol he is banned
Banned? You mean Blissey? How? It's a beast!

AHHH SO FREAKING LATE BUT OK

I use Blissey as, of course, a Cleric. Her job is to go in and help everybody else, and, if need be, take out another Pokemon. Sort of a revenge killer in some situations.

Bliss (Blissey) (F) @ Eviolite
Trait: Natural Cure or Healer- You can either help Blissey or possibly help the adjacent ally. Very helpful in either situation.
EVs: 252 Def / 252 SDef / 4 Spd
Relaxed Nature +Def anybody?
- Wish To help the rets of the team should their health be low.
- Heal Bell To help herself.
- Psychic To take care of a Fighting Type if she needs to RK.
- Toxic It really helps when she backs up everybody else.

by
First of all, you must be talking about Chansey, as Eviolite doesn't benefit her at all. Giving her max Def is utterly useless as she won't be walling Physical attackers anytime soon. Psychic is just bad on her, she wouldn't even be able to 2HKO Infernape, iirc. Oh, and she isn't a revenge killer. Just no.

I'm also late on this, but my idea is this:
enter image description here

Blissey (F) @ Leftovers
Trait: Natural Cure
EV: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SpDef
Calm Nature
-Soft-Boiled / Wish
-Light Screen
-Counter
-Toxic

My Blissey is a Counter Blissey with Light Screen to encourage physical attacks. With max HP and Defense to make sure she doesn't get 1 hit KOed, Counter can be a huge nuisance to deal with. Toxic is obvious, and Soft-Boiled is so she can recover if needed. If you want a more team oriented Blissey, you could use Wish instead.

Encouraging a physical attack on Blissey is a death wish even with it's monsterous HP stat because it's maximum possible defence is only 130.
0 votes

Blissey (F) @ Leftovers
Ability: Serene Grace
Bold Nature (+Def,-Atk)
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SpD
-Soft-Boiled
-Minimize
-Charge Beam
-Toxic

Basically, the role of this Blissey is to stall and sweep at the same time. Soft-Boiled is for healing, and Minimize sharply raises her Evasiveness, meaning you can max out Blissey's Evasiveness in three turns! Charge Beam, paired with Serene Grace, raises Special Attack literally every time you use it. As for Toxic, it is a deadly weapon with Blissey. Although, watch out for opponents with Guts, e.g Hariyama! http://t0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQZynft9ZioK7KU4SLTI3I9yWWCcQj0hzoji9-4rsfCLKkO7bkQW-1tcEWx

Here's mine:

Blissey @ Leftovers
Ability: Natural Cure
Calm Nature:
EVs: 126 Def / 126 SpD / 252 HP / 4 Spe
- Flamethrower
- Ice Beam
- Thunderbolt
- Psychic

If you are the heal lover, change Ice Beam or Flamethrower or Thunderbolt for Soft-Boiled.

Hope this is helpful.

Bad ev spred. You're running all offensive moves with no offensive investment. A

You'll be surprised how much this one works.

Blissey (F) @ Focus Sash / Focus Band
Ability: Natural Cure
Nature: Gentle (-Def +Sp.Def) / Calm (-Atk +Sp.Def)
EVs: 252 HP / 252 SpD / 4 Spe

  • Counter: Here's where you use that item. Because of extremely low Defence and extremely high HP, if the opponent walks into Counter they will not live to tell the tale.
  • Toxic: You can see where I'm going here.
  • Protect: You guessed it.
  • Soft-Boiled: Works well if you rotate between this and Protect when facing Special Attackers after Toxic. Counter is for Physical opponents.

This one is prepared for pretty much anything, barring Steel- or Poison-types with special moves, physical Ghosts, or anything that runs Rest+Sleep Talk with special moves. Other than complications like that, you're golden. :)

Here's an amazing competitive Blissey. It's worked so far for me. I've updated this moveset!

Blissey

Blissey @ Focus Sash
Ability: Natural Cure
Hasty Nature
EVs: 252 SpD / 252 Spe
- Toxic
- Soft-Boiled
- Counter
- Hidden Power [Ground]

So this Blissey has a dual function: it can either be a staller or a (possibly suicidal) killer. Let me explain my strategy:
If the opponent is a physical attacker, they probably know that they can easily KO a Blissey, so I use Counter. With the highest HP in the game and extremely low Defense, the physical move will probably knock Blissey down to 1 HP (thanks to the Focus Sash), which then will guarantee being able to KO the other Pokémon with Counter.
If the opponent is a special attacker, I go with a staller set. I first Toxic and then Soft-Boiled all the damage away.
Hidden Power [Ground] is for Poisons and Steels that can't be poisoned, and for Taunt.

So there's my Blissey. If you like it or have anything to say regarding it, feel free to leave a vote/comment. Thanks to anyone who takes time to read this! :)

Watch out for skarmory D:
This also won't work against special poison types...
Alakazam Aggron Mega Absol Espeon Umbreon Gengar Venusaur
And this is the most common set in PS
Be careful of Thundurus-I since it is a prankster user so it makes it a viable taunt ab00ser
Almost any taunter will outspeed it lolz
