Weakness Policy

Toxtricity @ Weakness Policy
Ability: Punk Rock
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Endure
- Shift Gear
- Boomburst / Stored Power / Sludge Wave
- Overdrive

Endure is to take the super effective hit and activate Weakness Policy. Shift Gear is for when you need to speed up and to boost Stored Power. Third moveslot can be Boomburst for raw Punk Rock boosted damage, Stored Power for niche coverage and when a Weakness Policy/Shift Gear is set up it will have a base power of 160, and Sludge Wave is STAB. Overdrive is a standard STAB boosted by Punk Rock.

thing is, Toxtricity only has 2 weaknesses and 8 resistances. :P

No overdrive? cid spray is preferred over sludge bomb/wave? Only 3 move slots? You recommend toxic on an offensive mon? This is all around trash.
I did put Overdrive(as the first move) and btw acid spray is just a preference u can always swap it out for any other move

Toxtricity (either form works,) @ throat spray
Ability: Punk Rock
Nature: Timid (see below)
EVs: 252 SpA/252 Spe/4 HP

The problem with this Pokemon is that the majority of the good natures for this Pokemon will give you the low key form. That doesn't matter here as this moveset won't utilize either final level-up move. Although I will say the low key move is definitely more niche. If you want amped-up form or to utilize the final level-up move I recommend using a nature that negates itself, such as Hardy. Not the best option but cut your losses somewhere. Anywho moveset time:

1: OverDrive - Nice Stab
2: BoomBurst - Crazy powerful plus more with the ability.
3+4: Toxic + Hex! - I haven't played with this enough but I wanted to get this idea out there so people could try it. Starting with Toxic is always a good idea. Using Hex does double the damage to any Pokemon affected by a status condition.

Kinda different and this won't give you a poison stab move but who knows. I'm open to all suggestions and comments. I've stated this on other posts, but I'm the guys that goes against the grain and tinkers with movesets just to find something new and different.

Toxic and hex combo? What about toxic and venoshock? Or even better, none of them. Shift gear to raise your mediocre speed and sludge bomb for STAB is just superior

Toxtricity (Amped Form) @ Throat Spray
Ability: Punk Rock
Nature: Timid
EVs: 252 SpA/252 Spe/4 SpD

Overdrive - STAB + Ability + Item
Shift Gear - For mediocre Speed
Boomburst - Powerful + Ability + Item
Sludge Bomb - STAB + 30% Poison chance

Toxtricity with a timid nature is low-key form and low-key can't lear shift gear so what other nature could you use.
You can mint the nature. Minting a Toxtricity's nature does not change its form. Start with an Amped form and change it.
Oh ty I forgot about those

Stored Power Sweeper:

Toxtricity (Amped Form) @ Throat Spray
Ability: Punk Rock
Nature: Timid (+Spe, -Att)
EVs: 252 SpA / 128 HP / 128 Spe

  • Overdrive
  • Shift Gear
  • Stored Power
  • Boomburst / Sludge Wave / Sludge Bomb / Acid Spray

Using a combination of the Throat Spray item and Shift Gear, it is possible to get Stored Power to deal quite a lot of damage. Firstly, Overdrive is a solid sound move, that deals STAB damage and activates its Throat Spray. Going to the bottom, Boomburst fills a similar role, while the latter three options are used to deal STAB damage, and to have a good option against Soundproof. Shift Gear can be used to set up, and boost the power of stored power. Unfortunately, it increases Attack instead of Special Attack, but it still is helpful for the boost. If Shift Gear is used, the power of Stored Power increases to 80 automatically. If you use two Shift Gears and attack with a sound move once, the power is boosted up to 160! However, Toxtricity needs to be survive to pull this off, so I gave him 128 EVs in HP to help it.

Overall, this set can be used against a wide variety of Pokémon, but may struggle against ground types and Ferrothorn.

Thanks!
