Pidgeot @ Pidgeotite
EVs: 252 Sp.atk/252 Spd/4 Hp
Ability: Big Pecks ---> No Guard
-Heat Wave
-Quick Attack/U-Turn
Alright lemme explain. Heat wave is to cover those Steel-types that wall it such as Scizor. Hurricane has a nice chance to confuse and 100% accuracy with No Guard so it is quite useful unless the opponent switches. Round is because Gengars are fairly common and if you use Uproar, they are likely to switch to Gengar and cream you with Thunderbolt. Quick Attack for UU and below to finish of Pokemon quickly. U-Turn for OU and above to scout and get some damage and switch out if you see a threat.

Hope this set brings victory to many! :D

since this pokemon came out in oras i can say that its better if u get hyper voice instead of round....
dont really see a time when you will need to use a normal type anyways

Once there was a noob named Radicool21 on PokemonDB. He generally posted decent movesets. Sometimes he even got upvotes! But one day, he decided to break his mold...
and make one of the stupidest movesets...
of all time.


Pidgeot @ Pidgeotite
Ability: Tangled Feet -> No Guard
Adamant Nature
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe
-Brave Bird
-Steel Wing / Double-Edge

Steel Wing is coverage, and Double-Edge is STAB. Whichever one you prefer.
Roost is obligatory to heal off BB Recoil.
U-turn is to get the heck out when you're against a check/counter/etc.

Pidgeot was always one of my favorite Pokémon, but it was defenseless and weak. But now, it got a MEGA! :D



Ability~No Guard

EV~ 252 SpA, 128 Speed, 64 Defense, & 64 SpD

Nature~Modest (SpA+, Attack-)

Heat Wave
HP Ground

Pidgeot has a beastly Special Attack, and it's movepool supports it. Heat wave is STAB and to take out steel types who try to wall you, Hurricane is for STAB and confusion, HP ground is for coverage over electric,rock,fire,and steel, roost is if you want to be annoying, and tailwind is if you want to be speedy.
