Boltund @ Life Orb
Ability: Strong Jaw
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Thunder Fang
- Crunch / Play Rough
- Fire Fang
- Psychic Fangs

Thunder Fang is STAB and boosted by Strong Jaw. The other 3 moves are coverage that are boosted by Strong Jaw (except Play Rough). Life Orb makes Boltund even stronger.

This is an amazing Moveset! I wish Boltund could learn Ice Fang, because then it could cover it's one weakness.

Boltund @ Choice Band
Ability: Strong Jaw
EVs: 252 Atk/ 4 SpA / 252 Spe
Naughty Nature
- Thunder Fang
- Fire Fang
- Psychic Fangs
- Volt Switch

Someone at GameFreak hates this poor pup. If they didn't, it'd get Ice Fang. Sadly it doesn't get U-turn either, so we have to go with Volt Switch. It can't take a decent hit to save its life and its Special Attack is 90 just like its Attack, so going with Naughty to boost Attack but not hinder its Special Attack since it'll get one-shotted anyways doesn't really matter. If you really want to you can make it Adamant and throw those 4 SpAtk EVs into HP instead.

Gen 8 Doubles
Boltund
Boltund @ Throat Spray
Ability: Competitive
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Discharge
- Hyper Voice
- Snarl
- Protect

Most people run physical Boltund. If someone switches out for an a Pokemon with the ability Intimidate, Competitive doubles Boltund's Special Attack. Discharge is STAB. Hyper Voice and Snarl is where it gets interesting. If you use Hyper Voice or Snarl, it will activate the Throat Spray, boosting your Special Attack by one stage, and if you gotten a Special Attack boost from Competitive, you could have a +3 Special Attack. Protect is to protect yourself. This set is intended for Double Battles.

This looks like a good doubles set if you had discharge as a alternate for t bolt and volt switch with protect
Thanks for the advice. I changed the moves to Discharge and Protect.

Boltund @ Anything
Ability: Strong Jaw
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Jolly / Adamant Nature
- Thunder Fang
- Fire Fang
- Psychic Fangs
- Crunch / Play Rough / Volt Switch / Flame Charge / Thunder Wave

Thunder Fang is STAB and better than Wild Charge after a Strong Jaw boost. Fire Fang and Psychic Fangs are also boosted by Strong Jaw, and provide coverage.

Pretty standard stuff.

First 3, not much explanation.

If you choose Flame Charge (to raise it's great speed even more), you may choose to swap out Fire Fang, but this move has low power.
Thunder Wave is an option because Thunder Fang's Paralysis chance is only 10%, and Paralysis is really good for this dog.

Thunder fang is stronger than wild charge with strong jaw. Having two electric stabs is pointless, especially when one is always better than the other
Okay I'll get rid of Wild Charge and replace it with Crunch.

Boltund @ Expert Belt / Life Orb
Ability: Strong Jaw
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Thunder Fang
- Fire Fang
- Play Rough
- Crunch / Volt Switch (Pivot is nice, even if it doesn't do much damage)

I've used Boltund before in ZU and it recks. It's got competition with Luxray, Manectric, Electivire and Raichu to name a few, sure, but it's faster and can be a reliable physical Electric-type unlike Luxray and Electivire with Strong Jaw and Thunder Fang. Heck, run Psychic Fangs over Play Rough if you want to!
