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
Also snipe shot has increase critical chance
I use this moveset on my Inteleon and it’s really fun. Focus energy lets you OHKO nearly everything
this is the best inteleon set ive seen i obliterated an entire team with this
Also DeathCea I'm pretty sure I heard somewhere that 6 evs is actually possible, but still only gives you 1 stat point

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
Moves:
Scald (STAB)
Air Slash (Max Airstream)
Mud Shot (Against Electric types)
Dark Pulse (Lowers Sp. Def as Max Darkness)

by
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

Inteleon G-Max @ Scope Lens/ Life Orb
Ability: Sniper
Nature: Modest
EVs: 252 Sp.Atk / 252 Spd / 4 HP
- Snipe Shot
- Ice Beam
- Air Slash
- Shadow Ball
Snipe Shot and Sniper and STAB deals so much damage, including which item above you choose also affects it. Ice Beam for that 10% chance Freeze and also for Grass Cover, Air Slash can have that Flinch Chance and Grass cover. Shadow Ball for that 20% chance Special Defense Drop, giving Snow Shot and the other moves much more power.

by
Snipe Shot, not Snow Shot. Sorry for the error!
...you do know you can just edit it, right?

Also, I feel like Focus Energy is better than Shadow Ball, especially on the Scope Lens set.
Instead of air slash since you already have ice beam I'd do dark pulse and change shadow ball to focus so if you can set up then you can automatically crit all snipe shots

[email protected] Lens
Trait: Sniper
Nature: Modest (+Sp. Attack, -Attack)
EVs: 252 Sp. Attack, 252 Speed, 4 HP
Role: Special Sweeper

Moves:

  • Snipe Shot: STAB, great chance for a Critical hit, and Critical Hits do more with Sniper.
  • Ice Beam: Covers Grass type Weakness, 10% chance to freeze opponent.
  • Dark Pulse: Coverage, good flinch chance (20%)
  • Air Slash: Coverage, great flinch chance (30%).

Nobody would ever expect a physical Inteleon
[email protected] Sash
Inteleon
Ability:Torrent
Nature:Jolly/Adamant
EVs:252 Atk / 252 Spe / 4 HP
•Swords Dance
•Liquidation
•Acrobatics
•Fell Stinger/Sucker Punch/Aqua Jet/Ice Shard
Set up swords dance, when the sash activates, so does torrent, so you can hit very hard with liquidation. Acrobatics is very powerful when sash activates. Fell Stinger can give you a massive attack boost, sucker punch is priority, aqua jet is STAB priority, and ice shard is priority. Out of these, the best options are sucker punch and aqua jet, but it’s really what you want.
If you want to Dyanmax/Gigantamax, Acrobatics can take advantage of Max Airstream, too.

This is the moveset I'm gonna use in my next Sword playthrough.

Inteleon
Ability: Sniper
Nature: Timid
Item: Scope lens

EV's: 252 SpA, 252 Spe, 4 SpD

  • Focus energy.
    This move pretty much guarantees critical hits, especially with the scope lens, sniper ability and snipe shot.
  • Snipe shot.
    Like I said before, works well with focus energy, scope lens etc. Powerful STAB
  • Dark pulse.
    Good coverage against psychic and ghost.
  • Ice beam / mud shot.
    Icebeam is preferable but mud shot is still decent and covers electric, fire, poison, rock and steel. Ice beam covers dragon, flying, grass and ground. Both are good coverage.

Inteleon @ Scope Lens
Ability: Sniper
Nature: Modest (Sp-Att+/Att-)
EVS: 252Sp-Att / 252Spe / 6Def

Moves:

Snipe Shot: Hits HARD
Ice Beam: Hits HARD and kills most dragons/grass types so great coverage
Air Slash: Hits HARD and kills most grass types so decent coverage
Aqua Ring: Decent setup and if you get hit you can likely heal before getting hit again so you can keep a run and possibly sweep.

this is all just what I have on my own Inteleon so don't judge lol

by
I don't see a point in running Air Slash as coverage for Grass types on something that has Ice Beam as well. Also, Inteleon is way too frail to make use of Aqua Ring and you're pretty much going to be wasting a turn using a rather useless set up move

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

Snipe Shot/ Scald: Most reliable STAB / Chance To Burn
Focus Energy Means Death ( If You Get To Setup)
Air Slash/ Dark Pulse / U-turn ( Flinch or Escape)
Ice Beam Coverage for Grass,Dragons

I don't need to explain this.

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.

Choice Specs Sweeper:

Inteleon @ Choice Specs
Ability: Torrent
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Scald/Surf/Hydro Pump
- Air Slash/U-Turn
- Dark Pulse/Shadow Ball
- Ice Beam

The reason I went for a Torrent set instead of a Sniper one is that it is extremely risky to set up with focus energy in singles unless you have a focus sash. Also I did not run Mud Shot is because a STAB Scald/Surf/Hydro Pump does more than a Super Effective Mud Shot.
Scald for that burn to cripple physical attackers so they do less damage with physical moves or Surf for a good base power and accuracy or Hydro Pump for high damage but for the cost of accuracy. Any one of these 3 water moves are viable for Inteleon.
Air Slash is for good coverage against Bug and Fighting types and that needed speed boost when dynamaxed from Max Airstream and also that extremely nice 30% chance to flinch, or you can just run U-Turn for pivot.
Shadow Ball is for sp.def drops but not as good as Dark Pulse when Dynamaxed, in which case Max Darkness lowers the Sp.def of walls. Dark Pulse also has a Flinch Chance. Even though both Dark and Ghost are super-effective against the same types, (Psychic and Ghost), Shadow Ball has a slight advantage being super effective against Hatterene, Gardevoir, and Mimikyu while Dark Pulse hits them neutrally. It's up to you which one you pick.
Lastly, we have Ice Beam, which it is obvious that it would be included.
Hope this set is successful for you

Just try to get some crits.
Also, you can try and get a Pokemon in doubles that draws in the opponent’s moves so you can get the focus energy in, unharmed.
