PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

So I'm building a competitive team, (single battle format) and I have both an Ampharos and a Blastoise.
has rain dish ability, holding leftovers
rain dance
skull bash (I'm thinkin' of switching this move, so any suggestions would be nice)
blastoise's attack is higher than his sp attack stat

static ability ,holding ??? (I not sure what to give him)
focus blast
dragon pulse (or other dragon move)
cotton guard (to cover his defense)

If you could suggest which one to use, I would be very appreciative

What kind of singles? Is it on Showdown! or a real copy of a game? Are there any Pokemon, moves, or abilities that you're not allowed to use?
Real game (pokemon x)

Why would you use Blastoise or Ampharos when stuff like Slowbro, wash Rotom, and Magnezone are so much better?
you do have a point
Blastoise and Ampharos are pretty horrible. You could probably cover both of them just using Rotom-W alone. There's a long, long list of better Water and Electric types available.

If you have access to Keldeo, then you should use Keldeo because it has higher stats then both Blastoise and Ampharos. If you don't, then you should use wash Rotom because it can learn will-O-wisp and pain split and has better typing. If you really want to use either Blastoise or Ampharos, then you should use Blastoise, because its weaknesses are slightly rarer, and its ability strengthens its cardiovascular health. I would recommend this set.

Blastoise @ Blastoisinite
Ability: rain dish
EVs: 184 HP / 252 SpA / 72 Spe
Modest nature
- water pulse
- rapid spin
- aura sphere
- dark pulse

Cardiovascular health lol
Mega launcher strengthens its pulse, right?
