Frosmoth @ Occa Berry
Ability: Ice Scales
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Modest Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Quiver Dance
- Bug Buzz
- Ice Beam
- Hurricane / Weather Ball / Giga Drain

This set appreciates rain, but it's not mandatory. In rain, after a Quiver Dance, Ice Scales, and Occa Berry, Frosmoth can easily take fire moves. It can also use Weather Ball to take out fire types, or 100% accurate Hurricanes in rain, or Giga Drain if you're not using rain.

Definitely the best set for a sweeper Frosmoth. Weather Ball in Rain with this hits like a truck and the coverage is so nice.

Frosmoth @ Leftovers
Ability: Ice Scales
Evs: 252 Def / 4 HP / 252 Sp. Def
Bold Nature
- Icy Wind
- Struggle Bug
- Wide Guard
- Helping Hand/Tailwind/Feather Dance/Giga Drain
Doubles tank/support Frosmoth! It has been doing wonders for me. It anihilates threats like Torkoal and Heat Wave Zard, Tyranitar´s Rock Slide, etc, despite being able to tank very well overall. you have access to moves that cripple Sp Atk and Speed of both enemies, apart of Feather Dance in case you feel like you really need to nulify a certain threat. It still 2 hit KOs Dragapults with icy wind without Sp Atk investments and can survive a flamethrower from it. It gets access to Tailwind to settup for a sweeper and Helping Hand to empower, all of these moves are great depending on the situation. I run mine usually with a Gmax Lapras that covers Rock and Fire types with Max Geyser and sets Rain and Aurora Veil.
If you want the Lapras set too here ya go:
Ability: Hydration Item: Light Clay
252 HP / 4 Def / 252 Sp Atk
Modest Nature
- Rest
- Freeze-Dry
- Surf
- Thunder
Rest because Lapras is still pretty tanky and if you set Rain with Max Geyser, your ability Hydration will cure it from the sleep, then you´ll have thunder for coverage, surf for Stab since Frosmoth can tank it well or just protect itself with wide guard and Freeze-Dry to deal with water types like Gastrodon and Ice Stab.

Lamp (Frosmoth) @ Heavy-Duty Boots
Ability: Ice Scales
Happiness: 160
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Quiver Dance
- Bug Buzz
- Air Slash / Giga Drain
- Ice Beam

I don't have the slightest idea what you're talking about. No, I did not copy this from Smogon.

...ok, I almost did, but I am opting to run Air Slash here instead of Hurricane because better accuracy, a 30% flinch chance, and I plan to have help from Quiver Dance already anyway. Giga Drain is also available to help fend off Rock types, should they give you an issue.

Focus Sash is also an acceptable item option if you're planning on using this early, but given that it has a 4x susceptability to Stealth Rock, I think Smogon is actually smart for recommending these new boots here.

Frosmoth (Snomrade) @ heavy duty boots (for those pesky rocks)
Ability: Ice scales (2x resistance to sp. attacks)
EVs: 252 hp/ 4 SpA/ 252 Spe
Nature: Timid (-Attack +speed)
IVs: 0 attack
Moves:
Quiver dance
Ice beam/blizzard
Air slash/hurricane
Giga drain

This set works well when switching in on a special attacker. quiver dance once or twice and then you're good to go. Just watch out for steel types or other special walls!
Ice beam/blizzard for STAB coverage, choose accuracy or power
Air slash/Hurricane for coverage and countering fighting or fire types. Again choose accuracy+flinch or power+confusion
Giga drain for life steal and countering rock types

I like using Ice STAB over bug buzz, but if you need dark and psychic counters then use bug buzz instead of Ice STAB or giga drain.

Bug Buzz and Ice Beam are STAB. Quiver Dance to boost its stats. Giga Drain for Rock types.

No, just no. Don't run weakness policy, you NEED heavy duty boots or Stealth Rock wil obliterate you. Feather dance is pointless, run air slash/hurricane.
