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.

Scout and Tailwind/Defog Support

Mega Pidgeot @ Pidgeotite
Type : Normal / Flying
Ability : Keen Eye > No Guard
Nature : Timid ( Spe+ Atk- )
EVs : 252 Hp / 4 Def / 252 Spe

  • U-Turn
  • Hurricane
  • Defog / Tailwind
  • Hidden Power Ground / Heat Wave

Mega Pidgeot's great speed can offer Tailwind/Defog support and great scouting. With No Guard and the Special Attack boost after Mega Evo, Hurricane can hit hard and accurately. Magnezone/Heatran and Skarmony can wall Pidgeot, and Hidden Power Ground and Heat Wave can deal with them respectively.
