I absolutely LOVE Sylveon. But do I really need her in battles? I use:

Ability: Pixilate
Item: Pixie Plate
Shiny: Yes
Hyper beam

So, which one is the best offensive attacker? What is a good Moveset for them? What would be their role? Should I keep Sylveon?

What format/rules are you playing with?

Replace Moonblast with Wish, Hyper Beam to Hyper Voice, Psyshock to Mystical Fire, and Yawn to Protect, if you were to ask me.

Technically, the eeveelutions that have the best offensive stats are Espeon and Jolteon, with Espeon having 130 base Special Attack and 110 base Speed and Jolteon having 110 base Special Attack and 130 base Speed. While both certainly have good stats, Sylveon is arguably the best eeveelution as far as competitive play goes, since Pixilate is and amazing niche.

Sylveon @ Pixie Plate
Ability: Pixilate
EVs: 252 HP / 252 SpA / 4 SpD
Modest Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Wish
- Protect
- Mystical Fire
- Hyper Voice

As for Espeon and Jolteon, if you want to use them, here's what I recommend:

Jolteon @ Choice Specs
Ability: Volt Absorb
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Shadow Ball
- Thunderbolt
- Volt Switch
- Hyper Voice

Espeon @ Leftovers
Ability: Magic Bounce
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Calm Mind
- Psyshock
- Dazzling Gleam
- Shadow Ball

Hope this helps! :)

Maybe they used psyshock for poison coverage
Mystical Fire is more useful, imo, it hits steel types like Ferro.
Flareon also has high physical attack
Yes, psyshock is for poison. I can't use mystical for because I don't have isle of armor. ( I think you need that to get it). But I can change hyper beam and moonblast
The reason why I did hyper beam, was because of yawn. If a did yawn, then hyper beam, the recharge wouldn't matter because of Sleep.
Thank you for your answer tho

Mystical Fire is a TM available for purchase at the Battle Tower I'm pretty sure
No problem!

And Kyogre is correct.
