Gen 8 UU / Battle Stadium Singles


Moltres-Galar @ Weakness Policy / Heavy-Duty Boots
Ability: Berserk
EVs: 4 Def / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
- Fiery Wrath
- 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.

Moltres-Galar @ Salac Berry / Weakness Policy
Ability: Berserk
EVs: 4 Def / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
- Nasty Plot
- Air Slash
- Substitute
- Fiery Wrath

Set up a Substitute, if it doesn't get broken immediately use Nasty Plot. If the Substitute gets broken immediately, keep spamming it until you get into Salac Berry territory, then try to sweep. Wow, this is like roman general level advanced strategy and battle tactics.

If it's Salac Berry, then you should run the other STAB move instead of Agility imo.

Moltres-Galar @ Life Orb
Moltres
Ability: Berserk
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
Timid Nature / Modest Nature
- 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-Galar @ Chesto Berry
Ability: Berserk
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
- Fiery Wrath
- Hurricane / Air Slash
- Nasty Plot
- Rest

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-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.

Role: Sweeper
Moltres-Galar @ Weakness Policy
Ability: Berserk
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
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.

Monotype
Moltres
Moltres-Galar @ Leftovers
Ability: Berserk
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Modest Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Substitute
- Agility
- Nasty Plot
- Fiery Wrath

As simple as it looks. Go into sub, set up Agility and Nasty plot, and start sweeping and flinching with Fiery Wrath. You'll want a mon with Defog to clear Stealth Rocks.
