I’ve been soft resetting for shiny mudkip for 8 months now and I figure if I’m going to keep going I may as well make it as painful as possible. So I’ll EV train the little man.

What do you want to do with this Swampert? Do you want to battle the Battle Frontier or other people?
I want absolutely nothing other than to waste my life.
In that case, I'd recommend 83 HP/83 Atk/87 Def/87 SpA/83 SpD/87 Spe to waste as many EVs as possible.

Ok, I'm assuming "wasting your life" was a joke lmao.

Swampert @ Leftovers
Ability: Torrent
EVs: 248 HP / 216 Def / 44 SpD
Relaxed Nature
- Earthquake
- Ice Beam
- Protect
- Hydro Pump

This is the smogon set that is ran, 248 HP and 44 SpD allows it to live a Hidden Power Grass from Modest Zapdos. If you didn't already know, that's insane lmao. Earthquake is stronk stab, Ice beam is to meme Pokemon with its amazing coverage, protect is to scout booms and Hidden Power Grasses.

Swampert @ Leftovers
Ability: Torrent
EVs: 248 HP / 204 Def / 44 SpD / 12 Spe
Bold Nature
- Surf
- Toxic
- Protect
- Refresh

This is another set, however, this set is much more utility based. Surf is good stab, Toxic is reliable damage and to cripple walls, Protect is to scout booms and Hidden Power Grasses and Refresh is for annoying annoying annoying status.

Swampert @ Leftovers
Ability: Torrent
EVs: 108 Def / 252 SpA / 148 Spe
Rash Nature
- Hydro Pump
- Earthquake
- Ice Beam
- Focus Punch

This is much more of an "anti-meta" pick. Basically, the person who wrote this was like, what if, offensive swampert. So, it happened. Hydro Pump is stronk stab, earthquake is stronk stab, ice beam is good coverage and focus punch is nuclear coverage.

Swampert @ Salac Berry
Ability: Torrent
EVs: 4 Def / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
- Substitute
- Endeavor
- Hydro Pump
- Roar

Now this is quite possibly the most offensive set. I just realized that these sets are going in a spectrum lmao. Moving on, Substitute is to protecc itself, as well as get into salac berry range, Endeavor is to use the salac berry range against other Pokemon, Hydro Pump is stronk stab and Roar is to phaze out annoying Pokemon.

Numbers and sets people

So basically, it matters if you want offensive or defensive.
