Mudsdale @ Assault Vest
Type : Ground
Ability : Stamina
Nature : Impish ( Def+ Spa- )
EVs : 252 Hp / 252 Atk / 4 Def

  • Earthquake
  • Low Sweep
  • Heavy Slam
  • Payback / Counter

This set allows Mudsdale to survive many hits before he can Attack. Assault Vest with Careful nature and Max Hp allows it to survive Special hits, while Max Hp, Impish nature, and Mudsdale's high Defence allows it to survive Physical hits. Stamina is really a great ability to have, scaring away Physical Attackers. Earthquake for a reliable STAB. Heavy Slam deals with Ice and Fairy types, also taking advantage of Mudsdale's ridiculous weight. Low Sweep lowers speed, dealing with some speed boosters and faster attackers. Payback and Counter takes advantage of Mudsdale's Low speed.

Mudsdale @ Sitrus Berry
Type: Ground
EV's: 252 HP / 252 Sp. Def / 4 Def.
Nature: Lax (+Def -Sp. Def)

  • High Horsepower ( STAB, don't be fooled by that 95 accuracy.)

  • Heavy Slam (Mudsdale has an insane weight. (aka 2028.3 lbs (920.0 kg) not sure what its power will be but surely very high.)

  • Superpower (Coverage)

  • Earthquake (Good power.)

If you didn't know, I'm trying to avoid speed as much as possible because this guy might be a good TR (Trick Room) sweeper for the terrible speed even though speed is almost everything on the stats for me. Eiether way I think Mudsdale is very strong.

There really isn't much difference between High Horsepower and Earthquake, competitive wise, and Earthquake has more power and accuracy anyways while having the same amount of PP. High Horsepower's slot could probably be replaced with another coverage move or something???
Heavy slam already covers ice types tho, and I pick close combat over super power (In **MY** opinion before a fight starts)

Held item: Leftovers
Ability : Stamina
Nature : Careful ( SpDef+ Spa- )
EVs : 196 Hp / 60 Atk / 252 Sp. Def

  • Earthquake
  • Payback
  • Toxic
  • Rock Slide

Stamina to boost the defense, leftovers to help heal hp over turns as the Pokemon becomes more durable.
Earthquake for STAB and power, Payback because of Mudsdale being slow (high IV's in speed aren't needed) as well as coverage, Rock Slide for coverage, Toxic to hinder special attackers whilst wearing them down helping to wall. Just an alternative way you can use this (in my opinion) awesome Pokemon.
