Stonjourner @ Zoom Lens
Ability: Power spot
Nature: Brave (+Atk, -Spd)
EVs 252 Atk/ 252 Def or 252 Sp.def (your choice) 4 HP

Stone Edge
Body Press/ Rock Slide
Mega Kick/ Sandstorm
Earthquake/ Heat Crash

Strategy: Make Stonjourner as slow as possible to make the Zoom Lens activate. Use defense EVs if you use Body Press or use special defense EVs otherwise because Stonjourner really needs it.

  • Stone Edge gets STAB, has high power and gets good accuracy with the Zoom Lens
  • Body Press is good with Stonjourner due to high defense stat, good power, steel coverage and 100 accuracy; Rock Slide has high power, accuracy bonus with Zoom Lens, STAB, and gives you another reason to use Stonjourner in double battles because it hits both opposing Pokemon
  • Mega Kick has high power and gets the accuracy bonus; Sandstorm is a good idea if your opponent is using non-rock, ground or steel types or has a Sp.atk-er because Stonjourner gets +50% Sp.def since it's a rock type
  • Earthquake has high power and accuracy and covers steel weakness; Heat Crash covers grass and steel weakness and puts Stonjourner's weight to a good use

Tips: Watch out for Low Kick and Grass Knot, as those are not good for Stonjourner. I checked this moveset on the Pokemon type coverage calculator and it was incredibly good. Make sure you move last!

I am new to pokeBase. This is the first moveset I made. Hope you like it!

Mega Kick do not has any coverage for it and has low acc, otherwise all good
Mega Kick gets 95% accuracy with the Zoom Lens, that's good enough for me.
Stonjourner is one of my favorite Pokemon. :)

Stonjourner@Life Orb
ABILITY: Power Spot
NATURE: Adamant
EVs: 252 Atk/252 Def/4 Spd

Stone Edge
Heat Crash

Stone Edge as STAB. Earthquake, Heat Crash and Superpower for coverage. Alternatively, you could use Assault Vest, but Life Orb is probably better for this set. To preferably be used in doubles because of its ability.

Stonjourner @ Choice Band
Ability: Power Spot
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 SpD
Adamant Nature
- Stone Edge
- Earthquake
- Body Press
- Heat Crash / Heavy Slam

Stonjourner probably works best with Sticky Web support if it's planning to outspeed anything. Stone Edge is strong STAB. Earthquake is coverage. Body Press takes advantage of it's 135 base defense. Heat Crash and Heavy Slam are two moves that use Stonjourner's weight, and can provide some interesting coverage.

Ability: power spot
Evs: 252atk/252hp/4def
Role: (suicide)lead
-stone edge
- earthquake
-stealth rock
- body press/heavy slam/heat crash.
If body press run 252atk/252def/4 hp
The turn setting up rocks and life orb and other damage will wear it done quickly. Hopefully it manages to make a dent in ur opponents team.
Pair with a special wall so it can switch out if the opponent is special and sponge the hit that would have crippled.

252+ SpA Magikarp Hydro Pump vs. 252 HP / 0 SpD Stonjourner: 440-518 (108.9 - 128.2%) -- guaranteed OHKO
Both level 100
Only flaw is that this has no speed investment you can try if you want him to sweep run jolly and 252 atk/252spe/4hp
4def if body press

Replace the 4 speed EVs with 4 HP EVs. He is slow, and you have curse. Otherwise, good set
Both iron defense and curse are unnecessary. Replace one of them with a coverage move
That is true

Stonjourner @ Aguav Berry
Ability: Power Spot
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Atk / 252 SpD
Careful Nature
- Wide Guard
- Protect

A doubles support. Power spot essantailly give a free boost.Wide gaurd for popular spread moves, protect for single protection. Earthquake can trigger WP and also do spread damage. Rock slide does the same.
