Greedent @ any berry
Ability: Cheek Pouch
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 SpD
Adamant Nature
- Stuff Cheeks
- Facade
- Body Press
- Crunch

With Stuff Cheeks, Greedent will eat its berry, restore some HP from Cheek Pouch, and gain a +2 defense boost. It then just hits hard with Facade, Body Press, and Crunch.

If you use a Gallon Berry, it will go from being a 2x defense boost to a 2.5x defense boost. If you don't want that extra boost, you could go for something like a Wiki/Figi Berry to get back more health. I would change Facade for Gyro Ball and then change for a Relaxed/Brave nature, that way you get the most damage out of Gyro Ball and more coverage. Other than that, this is an amazing set!
tbh I don't see the point of gyro ball when you already cover rock types with body press and getting rid of the only stab move is also kind of hard to justify
True, and I guess with most pokemon in Greedent’s tier knowing toxic, facade would work well. I only put Gyro Ball as a suggestion for incredibly fast pokemon, but Facade would probably do better a lot of the time. I don’t see a situation where a double damage 80 power move is going to do less than a 1.5x damage 70 power move though, so removing facade wouldn’t be a massive deal. I do understand using it if you tend to run into toxic stallers like flareon, but in my opinion both Gyro Ball and Facade work well.

Honestly it's kinda obvious what you should use for Greedent. (With Trick Room) Just run this:

Greedent @ Sitrus Berry
Ability: Cheek Pouch
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 SpD
Brave Nature
- Belly Drum
- Crunch
- Body Slam/Facade
- Fire Fang

Go for the Belly Drum right when Greedent comes out. It'll eat it's sitrus berry and then be healed to full with cheek pouch. Then just use your other moves depicting the situation. Try putting this on a trick room team. For a trick roomer, I'd recommend Runerigus.

Good luck using this!

Well, this greedent is very op, and here’s my strategy for this little chick
Ability: Cheek Pouch
Items: Sitrus Berry
EVs: 252 HP / 96Def / 160Sp.Def
Nature: Sassy (+Spd / -Speed)
-Stockpile (increase to a super tank)
-Gyro ball (With sassy nature, this would be so Op)
-Super Fang
-Counter:( Obviously you gonna get attack by a physical fighting attacker , plus you are slower , this gonna do a double damage, so wildddd)
TIPs: You should use stockpile first , then if you can tank some of the hit use another stockpile, after that base on the opp , wether the opp is , use the move that will super effect against it.

I'm going to do a different set so

Greedent @ Liechi Berry
Ability: Cheer Pouch
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Atk / 252 SpD
Careful Nature
- Stuff Cheeks
- Body Slam / Facade
- Earthquake
- Crunch / Ice Fang / Fire Fang / Thunder Fang / Body Press

This is a Stall Pokémon which can hit hard, too.
Stuff Cheeks is quite strong, so practically at low speed use this move turn one, but if you're using Trick Room then use it in the second turn. Body Slam and Facade are STAB moves, choose the latter if you fear status conditions. Earthquake is a good coverage move and boasts a good Base Power, and the last move can be Crunch, the elemental fangs or Body Press. If you're running Body Press, you may consider changing the 252 SpD EVs to 252 Def EVs, to make it a physical wall. You can also run 252 Atk EVs than 252 HP.

cheek pouch is not a move
ah yes, I love cheek pouch. Quite the powerful move elemental angs is also pretty good too.
Oops I was rushing through as I wanted to make a few moveset answer. Thx I will change that

Greedent @ Apicot Berry / Sitrus Berry
Ability: Cheek Pouch
EVs: 252 HP/ 44 Atk / 124 Def/ 84 SpD
Relaxed Nature
- Stuff Cheeks / Stockpile
- Crunch / Payback / Thief
- Body Press
- Super Fang

Stuff Cheeks is to be used with Apicot Berry, and Stockpile with Sitrus Berry.
Use Stuff Cheeks or Stockpile to get tanky, then use Body Press as your main attack with a Dark-type move as coverage and Super Fang to break down defensive tanks and walls.

Chungus (Greedent) @ Ganlon Berry / Figi Berry
Ability: Cheek Pouch
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Atk / 252 Def
Relaxed Nature
IVs: 0 Spe
- Body Press
- Stuff Cheeks
- Gyro Ball
- Psychic Fangs

Psychic Fangs is to get rid of screens and take out some fighting types. Use Stuff Cheeks immediately to skyrocket your defence. Ganlon Berry turns the 2x boost to a 2.5x boost, however the Figi Berry increases the healing you would get from Cheek Pouch. Either way, this will do massive damage and is incredibly hard to kill. Gyro Ball is there to take advantage of your abysmal speed, and turn it into a lethal weapon. This hasn't failed me yet, but I've only been testing it for a few hours (nickname is optional, but recommended for a performance boost lol).

Greedent @ Figy Berry
Ability: Gluttony
EVs: 252 HP / 252 ATK / 4 DEF
Brave Nature
-Belly Drum
-Gyro Ball
-Facade
-Crunch

Haven’t done the calculation so hopefully HP will drop to half after using Belly Drum which will activate Gluttony and regain health with Figy Berry. May need to tinker with HP to make it work. Works best with trick room support.

If you're going with Gyro Ball and Trick Room, give Greedent 0 Speed IVs.

Greedent @ Sitrus Berry
Ability: Cheek Pouch
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 SpD
Adamant Nature
- Belly Drum
- Body Slam
- Psychic Fangs
- Crunch

Role: Physical Tank
Belly Drum maximizes Greedent's Attack, but cuts its HP to 50%. Then, the Sitrus Berry will activate, restoring 25% of Greedent's HP, and Cheek Pouch will activate, restoring the rest of Greedent's HP. Body Slam is STAB, and has a good chance to paralyze the opponent. Psychic Fangs is to cover Fighting types, and it breaks Reflect and Light Screen. Crunch is for Ghost types that won't take much damage from Psychic Fangs.

Greedent @ Aguav Berry
Ability: Cheek Pouch
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 Def
Brave Nature
IVs: 0 Spe
- Belly Drum
- Substitute
- Super Fang
- Gyro Ball

Okay, okay, so hear me out. 0 speed Iv because of gyro ball, because Greedent won't be outspeeding anything anyway, so 0 speed IVs increases gyro ball's strength.

Belly drum and substitute are obvious, sub is for protection while you belly drum, because Greedent is so tanky that the substitute might actually take 2 hits to break.

Alternatively, you good use the substitute just as an extra layer of defense.

After you've belly drummed and subbed, Greedent will eat it's aguav berry, restoring 33% of it's hp, cheek pouch stacks with this, which gives you a whopping 66% regen.

Super fang is so you can lower you're target's hp if you think that gyro ball won't OHKO, although you could swap it out for any other decent move.

And that is my set, because Greedent is funny.

My setup for Greedent (My cousin gave me the idea so all rights to him :D)

Nature: Impish
Ability: Cheek Pouch
Item: Sitrus Berry (Fills hp to regen sub hp loss use stuff cheeks to get the most from it.)
Ev's Def (25 Iron)Sp. def (25 zink) optional fill ev's with attack (protein) or spd (Carbon)
Moveset:
Stockpile
Stuff Cheeks
Body Press
Substitute

Notes: Stock pile to 3 and Body press will do its work (Higher def stronger Body Press) and make a brick wall if done right!

Please Comment ways to improve this setup :D !
