I made a Walrein moveset involving Curse and Body Press:

Walrein @ Leftovers
Ability: Oblivious
EVs: 92 HP / 252 Atk / 164 Def
Impish Nature
- Curse
- Body Press
- Avalanche
- Earthquake

The EV spread is okay, but I feel like it could be better. What is a good EV spread for this Curse + Body Press Walrein? The format is for Gen 8 PU.

I can answer this, I just need the format (so I can compare it to threats in the format)
Oh, Gen 8 OU for now. Format may change when the tier change comes.
Oh yeah lol


Maybe I'll wait a bit :P
ou? theres no ev spread that will make this thing good enough to be useful in ou. might want to wait until it drops down in the tiers
Yeah. I'm going to hide this question for now until the Tier Change.
Ok lets see what I can do :D

You're using Body Press, and 2 Physical Attacking moves. Curse boosts Attack and Defense, but decreases Speed. You should have enough HP also to face the hits as your Walrein becomes more slower by curse.

So, 156 HP / 252 Atk / 100 Def would do good, as you're running Impish nature (Already got a boost in Defense) and further gets boosted by curse.

why? you're just decreasing the defense, meaning less power for body press...
Curse would boost it, for that you need to take a little more hits, that's why investment in HP.
