Naganadel @ Dragonium Z / Life Orb
Ability: Beast Boost
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
Timid Nature (+Spe, -Atk)
- Draco Meteor / Dragon Pulse
- Fire Blast / Flamethrower
- Sludge Wave
- Nasty Plot

Draco Meteor with Dragonium Z is incredibly strong and hits really hard after a Nasty Plot. Dragon Pulse can be used if you don't want to have to deal with stat drops. Fire Blast / Flamethrower hit Steel-types and Sludge Wave is more STAB. Naganadel is hard to stop after a Beast Boost.

Naganadel @ Life Orb
Ability: Beast Boost
EVs: 4 HP, 252 Sp.Atk, 252 Spe
Nature: Timid
- Sludge Bomb
- Dragon Pulse
- Fire Blast/HP Ice
- Nasty Plot

Standard sweeping set: Set up with Nasty Plot, sweep & snowball with Beast Boost. Sludge Bomb & Dragon Pulse are STAB. That leaves the choice between Fire Blast & HP Ice: Fire Blast covers your Ice weakness and hits Steel-types that resist and are immune to your 2 main STABS, but HP Ice can hit Ground-types hard too.

I would go Sludge Wave instead of Sludge Bomb

Naganadel @ Kings Rock
Ability: Beast Boost
EVs: SPD 4 / 252 SPA / 252 SPE
Nature: Timid (+Spe, -Atk)
Nasty Plot
Dragon Pulse (STAB)
Sludge Bomb (STAB)
Air Slash (Flinch Chance)

With the Kings Rock, Air Slash has a higher chance to cause flinching.
Nasty Plot ups the your SpA by two stages, making it an OP sweeper.
Every time you KO a Pokemon, Naganadel will up its speed, making it a fast sweeper.

Naganadel @ Life Orb/Wise Glasses/Choice Specs
Ability: Beast Boost
Nature: Modest
- Sludge Bomb (So you wouldn't hit your allies in a double or multi battle plus STAB)
- Dragon Pulse/Draco Meteor (Draco Meteor can reduce special attack by two stages)
- Flamethrower/Fire Blast (Coverage against ice types)
- Air Slash/Dark Pulse (Air Slash has a chance to make an opponent flinch except for Pokemon with the Inner Focus ability while Dark Pulse is coverage against Psychic Types)
With the best boost ability, the special attack will boost with the help of some items I suggested.

Hmmmm... If your doing singles then Sludge Wave, if your doing doubles or multi battles go with the Sludge bomb

What about PIMPNITE's Naganadel moveset:

Naganadel @ Dragonium Z
Ability: Beast Boost
Evs: 4 Hp / 252 Atk / 252 Spe
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SpA)

  • Fell Stinger
  • Gunk Shot
  • Dragon Claw
  • Throat Chop

Expanation: You know PIMPNITE, always looking for crazy movesets! Now we can have fun too. Make your foe faint with Fell Stinger to get a +3 in Attack. Gunk Shot and Dragon Claw are your Relialble STABs for Naganadel. Throat Chop is just for some extra Ghost and Psychic coverage.

Heres the link to PIMPNITE's Epic Naganadel Sweep:

Another legend: (definitely true) You have never won a battle. I am sorry, but I just want you to stop hating on PIMPNITE. If you don't like him, keep it to yourself
Plus, according to legend, you have never made a good roast. If I used to be a goat, you used to be a blobfish.
I just want to say one thing, every uber pokemon are super bulky and strong sweeper. This Naganadel would sucks and eats goat in Uber. Do u think Naganadel can faint any pokemon with it's 73 attack stats?
Stop comment going off topic
I see your point. Just stop hating on PIMPNITE. This moveset definitely needs some work. I mean like a LOT:) I am just being positive.
Please check out my movesets to! Like my naganadel moveset! Sorry about everything.

Trait:Beast Boost
EVs:252 Sp.Atk/252 Def/4 Spd
Nature: Timid (+Spd -Atk)/Modest (+Sp.Atk -Atk)
Sludge Wave-STAB/ Sludge Bomb-STAB(Sludge Bomb for VGC Doubles)
Nasty Plot
Dragon Pulse/Draco Meteor-STAB

The Devastating Drake will do big damage to whatever comes in except for fairies, but you got Sludge Wave for fairies so screw you Clefable, Thunderbolt or Flamethrower it's your decision for coverage but personally I would go Flamethrower because it covers ice types, The Nasty Plot is essential to sweep.

Sludge Wave, Draco Meteor and Fire Blast have perfect coverage together, so... reck stuff. U-turn to get the heck out of there.

Taco is a hacker? No, he is an expert. If you answer or ask any question, HT will edit it if he find any mistake.
Oh. I understand. That explains a lot! Thanks!

Choice Specs

Naganadel @ Choice Specs
EVs: 252 Sp. Atk/4 Sp. Def/252 Spe
Nature: Modest

-Draco Meteor/Dragon Pulse
-Sludge Wave (Singles)
-Fire Blast
-Dark Pulse

Draco Meteor is your main move, but Dragon Pulse can be used if you don’t want to deal with stat drops. Sludge Wave is STAB for singles, but Sludge Bomb should be used for STAB in doubles. Fire Blast is for coverage against Steel types, who would otherwise wall Naganadel. Dark Pulse is for coverage against Psychic types.

Have fun with this set!
