Jynx (F) @ Leftovers

Role: Rain Tank
Ability: Dry Skin
EVs: 196 HP / 252 Def / 30 SpA / 30 SpD
Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk)
- Hidden Power [Water] / Ice Beam
- Calm Mind
- Lovely Kiss
- Psyshock


Ugh.. This Thing's defense is hard to get up.

Hidden Power [Water] is great in the rain, and Calm Mind makes for some special bulk, Lovely Kiss makes your opponent go nighty night, and Psyshock gets some STAB into the mix.
EDIT: I now run Ice Beam > HP Water for several reasons, but mostly Dragonite. I've found several places where Ice Beam is generally better coverage. Plus.. It's still more powerful than HP Water in or out of rain.

Jynx @ Heavy-Duty Boots / Life Orb
Ability: Dry Skin
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Timid Nature

  • Lovely Kiss
  • Nasty Plot
  • Ice Beam
  • Psyshock

The order of the moves matters. First off, Jynx comes up to some random Pokemon and uses Lovely Kiss. Now, this Kiss isn't lovely, no, not at all. Jynx's kiss (and Jynx itself) strikes so much fear into the unfortunate victim's heart that it passes out. Jynx uses Nasty Plot to think of a devilish plan to rob the victim (and to boost SpA) while the other Pokemon sleeps. The enlightened Jynx then uses STAB Ice Beam on the enemy, or Nasty Plot to devise a plan even more evil. STAB Psyshock is there to torture the victim, even Special walls. It uses the psychic energy + the shock effect to force the victim to talk.

Gen V

Jynx (F) @ Life Orb
Ability: Dry Skin
Timid Nature
EVs: 252 SpA / 68 SpD / 188 Spe
- Lovely Kiss
- Ice Beam
- Nasty Plot
- Psyshock

Put the foe to sleep and then get in Nasty Plot boosts. Ice Beam and Psyshock are STAB. Dream Eater is unreliable as the foe can wake up at any moment, so Psyshock is used instead. Life Orb lets you deal more damage, mainly to be used when you can't get in any Nasty Plot boosts. Dry Skin is nice, especially if you are in the Rain. If not, it still gives you Water type immunity. The EVs give you good enough Speed and high enough Special Attack, as well as some Special Defense.

Jynx @ Big Root
Trait: Oblivious
EVs: 252 SAtk / 132 Spd / 126 HP
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
- Draining Kiss
- Sweet Kiss
- Lovely Kiss/Psychic/Ice Beam
- Attract

This is the ultimate frosty annoyer. I have used this set, I have won with this set, and let me tell you it works like a charm. Attract and Sweet Kiss are a must have, they decrease the chance of the opponent attacking to only 25% (I wish Jynx could learn Thunder Wave as well, to make the chance 12.5% but alas it doesn't). Lovely Kiss can be substituted with Psychic or Ice Beam, and I tend to go with Ice Beam because I don't like the Sleep condition and it covers more types. Anyway, use both Attract and Sweet Kiss (or just Sweet Kiss if the opponent is female) and then spam Draining Kiss. Draining Kiss recovers more than half of the damage done, and with the Big Root it recovers quite a bit more.

Jynx is a very good Pokemon and one of its uses is a great Water type switch-in/killer. Since most Water types these days have at least 1 Water move and some Ice move to protect it from Grass types, this gives Jynx the opportunity to power up.

Water Destroyer/Sweeper Jynx

Jynx @ Leftovers
Ability: Dry Skin
Nature: Timid (+Spe, -Atk)
EVs: 252 SpA / 252 Spe / 4 SpD
- Ice Beam- High power STAB
- Psyshock- STAB and helps when dealing with special walls
- Nasty Plot- boost your Special Attack
- Energy Ball/Grass Knot- when you're done powering up while facing Water types, kill them

Gen 7 ZU
Jynx (F) @ Normalium Z
Ability: Dry Skin
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Lovely Kiss
- Nasty Plot
- Focus Blast
- Ice Beam / Psyshock

Normalium Z is so you can use Z-Lovely Kiss, which raises your speed and can put the opponent to sleep if it lands. Nasty Plot is to setup while the opponent is asleep. Focus Blast is to deal with steel, rock, and dark types. You can use Ice Beam for ice STAB, or Psyshock for psychic STAB that hits special walls.
