Special Sweet Sweeper

Inteleon @ Scope Lens
Ability: Sniper
Natue: Timid (+Spe|-Atk)
EVs: 252SpA | 252Spe | 6HP

  • Snipe Shot/Scald: Most reliable STAB/Chance to Burn
  • Ice Beam: Coverage against Grass, Dragons
  • Dark Pulse: Coverage + 20% Chance to Flinch
  • Focus Energy: Means death (if you get to setup)

Sweet due to its ability Sniper. A great moveset for a Water type Pokemon with reliable and powerful STAB along with Ice Beam to counter Grass and Dragon types. Dark Pulse is a great move for coverage and helpful with high speed stat of Inteleon (further boosted due to Timid Nature and max EVs) as it can cause flinching.

The best part is Focus Energy. Focus Energy raises the Critical-Hit Ratio by 2 Stages. Adding 1 Stage boost in Critical-Hit Ratio from Scope Lens makes it 3. From Gen VI onwards, a 3-Stage boost in Critical-Hit Ratio means a guaranteed critical hit which deals 2.25x damage due to the ability Sniper. This one is meant to sweep sweetly!

i really like this build since it has good coverage and the critical hit ratio + critical hit damage boost and with focus energy its almost guaranteed with moves like snipe shot
I see you were looking into the future, I this move set on a video on YT. All of it flows so well too. I don't have Timid as my Nature but I have Modest to for the SpA. My EVs are the same 252SpA l 252Spe l 4HP. You might want to change the HP since it's over by 2.
This is a really good moveset, but I replaced dark pulse with Substitute
I think its a good set bc even tho it wouldnt do as much with torrent it would still deal a lot of damage with its high crit ratio

Inteleon @ Scope lens
Ability: Sniper
Nature: Timid
Evs: 252 Spa/ 252 Spe/ 4 hp

Snipe Shot
Focus Energy (If you get to set up this just once your Snipe Shot will always crit)
Dark Pulse (For coverage and the nice 20% flinch chance)
Ice Beam (So your only big threat is electric)

This is my own Inteleon, so don't criticise my inability to get it with Sniper.

Inteleon (gmax)
Item: Life Orb
Nature: Modest
EVs: 252 Spd, 252 Sp. Atk, 4 Hp
Ability: Torrent
Scald (STAB)
Air Slash (Max Airstream)
Mud Shot (Against Electric types)
Dark Pulse (Lowers Sp. Def as Max Darkness)

It doesn't have enough bulk and would likely get koed by opponent and mud shot low power likely would require at least 2 hits. It would probably do more damage using Scald or dark pulse. Replace it with ice beam
As Max Quake, it can do a lot more damage and boost Inteleon's Special Defense. Air Slash becomes Max Airstream, which will boost Inteleon's already good Speed and covers grass types just like Ice Beam, which becomes Max Hailstorm, which causes hail. Inteleon will take damage from it, which wouldn't help Inteleon at all. Also, this is a moveset for an Inteleon you would Gigantamax.

Why would you use the Binding Band? It is useless on your moveset. Also, why agility? Inteleon is already very fast. You also don't need two water type moves.
Whoops, I messed up on this. I was going to put Whirlpool in. I'll get rid of Agility for Whirlpool, and I get rid of Scald/Surf for Dark Pulse/Shadow Ball
