All-Out Attacker

Drampa @ Choice Specs/Life Orb
Ability: Berserk
EVs: 248 HP / 252 SpA / 8 SpD
Quiet Nature
IVs: 0 Atk / 0 Spe
- Hyper Voice
- Dragon Pulse/Draco Meteor
- Fire Blast/Thunder
- Hurricane/Shadow Ball

One of the most powerful special-attackers introduced in Gen 7, Drampa has a wide movepool, allowing it to hit many things super-effectively. This set is meant to be used in Trick Room and can either run Life Orb, if you'd like to switch around your attacks, or Choice Specs, enabling you to deal ultimate damage with your must-have STAB moves, Dragon Pulse and Hyper Voice, although Draco Meteor is also viable late-game. The other two moves can vary widely- in a rain team, Thunder and Hurricane are great choices with 100% accuracy in rain and chances to wreak status on the opponent, providing coverage against the common Fighting- and Water-types. However, Fire Blast (or Flamethrower, with more accuracy), can also deal major damage to troublesome Steel- and Ice-types and Shadow Ball can be used against Psychic- and Ghost-types.

Bulky Special-Attacker

Drampa @ Leftovers
Ability: Berserk
EVs: 248 HP / 176 Def / 80 SpA / 4 SpD
Relaxed Nature
IVs: 0 Atk / 0 Spe
- Calm Mind
- Roost
- Dragon Pulse
- Hyper Voice/Glare

Another Drampa set to be used in Trick Room, this one utilizes a Calm Mind and Roost combo to heal while gaining power and special bulk. You can choose to have an all-out defensive EV spread as another choice, but I chose this to add some power. Despite this, a Toxic-Spiker would work well with a defensive EV spread to have something to stall with while Roosting up. Dragon Pulse is its main move, with Hyper Voice as another damaging option. Glare can also be used in place of Hyper Voice to paralyze the opponent, giving you a chance to set up more. Since this set is totally inefficient against Mimikyu, a popular Pokémon nowadays, you may choose to run Shadow Ball to ensure a hard hit. Enjoy both these sets I've made! :D

Here I go with a VGC17 set:

Drampa @ Sitrus Berry
Ability: Berserk
EVs: 252 HP / 252 SpA / 4 SpD
Quite Nature
IVs: 0 Atk / 0 Spe
- Hyper Voice
- Dragon Pulse
- Flamethrower
- Protect

It seems a bit straight forward a simple 252-252 set but on drampa works perfectly! sitrus berry is for a possible second berserk boost, dragon pulse and hyper voice are the STAB moves (hyper voice hitting both target is deadly) and flamethrower is mainly for kartana and ninetales. it's a classic trick room set and in combination with oranguru you can fire off two powerful hyper voices (with instruct) or just pair with another Pokemon to spam damage!

I have come up with 2 sets for Drampa, hope you like them.

Set 1

Special Attacker

Drampa: Holding Sitrus Berry
Ability: Berserk
Nature: Modest
Evs: 252 Special Attack, 126 Defence, 126 Special Defence



The plan with this set is to get up 2 substitutes and get down to 1/2 HP, activating Berserk. Then using the Sitrus Berry, you'll get back to 3/4 HP so it'll be like you've only used 1 substitute (assuming you've taken no damage in the interim).

Dragon Pulse

Strong STAB

Hyper Voice

Strong STAB


High powered Special Attack and it deals with Drampa's weakness to Fighting types

Set 2

Drampa: Holding Wise Glasses
Ability: Berserk
Nature Modest or Timid (Speed isn't really important but ever little helps eh? Haha)
Evs: 252 Special Attack, 252 HP, 6 Speed


Rain Dance

Set up the rain on the first turn and then go to town on your enemies


Strong Special Attack that deals with one of Drampa's weaknesses, and has a 30% chance to confuse the opponent, AND! Never misses if the rain is up


Much like Hurricane, this is a strong Special Attack and has a 30% chance of paralysing the opponent, and never misses if the rain is up

Hyper Voice/Dragon Pulse

Either are strong STAB moves so it's your choice

This Drampa is power!

Drampa @ Life Orb
Ability: Berserk
Role: Special Sweep
Nature: Quiet
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Sp. Attack / 4 Defence

-Hyper Voice (STAB)
-Flamethrower/Fire Blast (Covers Ice weakness)
-Dragon Pulse/Draco Meteor (STAB)
-Calm Mind (Sp. Attack and Sp. Defence boosted +1)

What I would say about Drampa is that it may be pretty slow, but with that base Special Attack of amazingly 135, this guy is pretty much a powerful Pokémon, making it capable of sweeping some teams. With it's Defence EV at 4, Drampa can be quite a bulk sometimes, with it's Special Defence at 91 and HP at 78. The ability, Berserk, can be quite scary for some opponents, with it's Special Attack rising by 1 stage when it's HP falls below half, and Calm Mind, which also raises it's Special Attack plus it's Special Defence by 1 stage, will make this guy pretty buff. Hyper Voice, with the power of 90, plus approximately 30 more power due to STAB effect, is a very good move for Drampa. Flamethrower or Fire Blast, with a power of 90 and 110 and with an accuracy of 100% and 85%, are also good moves for it, since it covers weaknesses, such as Ice and Fairy. Dragon Pulse or Draco Meteor are very good STAB moves for Drampa. They both have incredible power. Dragon Pulse at 85 power and 100% accuracy and Draco Meteor at 130 power and 90% accuracy. With this moveset, Drampa can be the new swiffer! That was a pretty bad joke. lol
