•Nasty Plot
•Fiery Wrath
•Air Slash/Hurricane
•Ancient Power
It’s got Berserk to get a SpA boost at half HP, nice natural bulk, Max Airstream to boost speed, and Nasty Plot to boost SpA before Dynamax if you think they will set up or you can tank a hit.

why ancient power?
It’s got nothing else really. It’s movepool is atrocious.

Moltres-G @ Weakness Policy
Ability: Berserk
Timid Nature
252 SpA / 252 Spe / 4 Def

  • Fiery Wrath / Dark Pulse
  • Hurricane / Air Slash
  • Rest
  • Sleep Talk

Movepool is so atrocious, it doesn't even get mfing Roost. Oh well. Rest to abuse Berserk and heal off damage taken from a super-effective hit, then Sleep Talk and pray it lands on a STAB move and not Rest. Also remember, after 2 turns of Resting you wake up, so don't click Sleep Talk 3 times in a row like other people sometimes do.

This set takes advantage of Berserk. Get down on HP and use Rest to get back to full HP and wake up with 1.5 SpA. Nasty Plot for further boost. Moves are STAB.

Moltres-G @ Salac Berry / Weakness Policy
Ability: Berserk
Nature: Timid
EVs: 4 Def / 252 SpA / 252 Spe

  • Nasty Plot
  • Agility
  • Substitute
  • Fiery Wrath / Air Slash

Set up a substitute, if it doesn't get broken immediately use Agility to fix Moltres' average Speed stat and then go for a Nasty Plot if the sub is still up. If the sub gets broken immediately, keep spamming it until you get into Salac Berry territory, then try to sweep

Moltres-Galar @ Life Orb
Ability: Berserk
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
- Fiery Wrath
- Hurricane / Air Slash
- Nasty Plot / Agility
- U-turn

Fiery Wrath is a very nice STAB move. Hurricane is more powerful and less accurate, while Air Slash is the other way around. Nasty Plot and Agility boost Moltres-G's stats a bit. U-turn allows it to pivot. Life Orb helps it get closer to the Berserk goal.

Galarian Moltres @ Weakness Policy
Role: Sweeper
Ability: Berserk
EVs: 252 Special Attack / 252 Speed / 4 HP
Nature: Timid
IVs: 0 Attack
- Fiery Wrath
- Air Slash
- Ancient Power
- Agility

Explanation: This is a speedy sweeping moveset. Use Agility, let opposing Pokemon activate Weakness Policy and Berserk, and you will have some good Special Attack and Speed boosts. Fiery Wrath and Air Slash are for STAB and flinches (Air Slash is safer than Hurricane). Ancient Power is for Ice types. Timid Nature gives this Pokemon some extra speed. And there is a sweep.
