Replace Scald with Aqua Tail it’s stronger and it’s physical.
Scald has a chance to burn, it isn't supposed to be doing damage with it
Sure but then why do you have toxic.
For pokemon that don't need to be burned, and are crippled more by Toxic. It is obvious.

Quagsire @ Sitrus Berry
Ability: Unaware
EVs: 252 HP/ 192 SDef/ 64 Def
Nature: Careful

-Stockpile/Waterfall
-Recover
-Infestation
-Toxic

Toxic works well with Infestation and Stockpile is for the lack of Defense EVs. You can switch Stockpile with Amnesia but if you do I would recommend switching the Defense and Special Defense EVs for obvious reasons. you can also switch Stockpile for Waterfall and use this EV spread if you want to sweep a little: 252 HP/ 188 SDef/ 60 Def/ 4 Atk.

What about replacing Waterfall with Aqua Tail?
Waterfall is better for accuracy purposes.

Sir Quag I. IV Gen

Brave Nature
EV trained in Hp and Sp.Def
Water Absorb Ability
Leftovers Held item

Dive: STAB, pretty good after you use Curse and a way to avoid damage.
Curse: Defence and Attack power up. (Also a speed boost if used in the right team)
Amneisia: For some even more bulk.
Yawn: So you get to do all this with out the foe attacking.

Since it doesn't get Recover 'till Gen V, I use him in double battles and take advantage of moves like Surf to heal him.

Gen VI

Quagsire
Ability: Water Absorb
Nature: Brave (+ Attack, -Speed)
Item: Water or Ground boosting Item
EVs: 252 Attack/ 252 HP/ 4 Defense

Moveset:
Waterfall: STAB, secondary power.
Earthquake: STAB, main power.
Ice Punch/Ice Beam: Ice Punch is the first choice, however it's very hard to get for Generation VI, substitute Ice Punch with Ice Beam. His special attack isn't that great but it's to try and repel his 4x weakness to Grass.
Recover: Heals half health, goes well with his high HP. I love healing moves too.

Never was a big fan of Quagsire, just not a big fan of his design.

Quagsire @ Leftovers
EVs: 252 HP, 252 Defence/Sp.Def, 4 Attack
Nature: Relaxed/Sassy
Ability: Water Absorb/Unaware

Earthquake
Waterfall
Yawn
Haze/Curse

Yawn to sleep your opponent, or if they switch when you do this, switch loop them. Attack on the turn when they switch, if they have a flying type that has been in, waterfall as you know what's coming if you don't. If they stat boost baton pass to avoid sleep, use haze. I don't know what to call this set, an annoying sweeper, or an annoyer I'd say. Haze for Water Absorb, and Curse for Unaware.
Bear in mind, I use a TR team, so I chose speed lowering natures. If you aren't using a TR to make use of his low speed, use a sp.atk lowering one instead.

Swegsire @ Leftovers

enter image description here
Ability: Unaware
EVs: 252 HP / 156 Def / 100 SDef (Physically Defensive) or 252 HP / 156 SDef / 100 Def (Specially Defensive)
Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk)
- Scald
- Toxic
- Recover
- Stockpile

This set won me games and saved me from getting swept numerous times. While it's a generic stall set, it's powerful nonetheless. Swegsire practically shuts down every buff sweeper (which are getting pretty common) with Unaware. Just keep this away from Grass types and anything with Mold Breaker or a similar ability
Scald is used over Waterfall so you can burn things like Aegislash and Scizor while still being able to hit Heatran. Toxic brings in the stall hammer that Swegsire does ever so well. Recover gives you the heals and gives your opponents the desire to ragequit. Stockpile lets you get up some OP defenses.

Incredibly Annoying Quagsire

Quagsire @ Leftovers
Ability: Unaware
Careful Nature
EVs: 252 HP / 252 SpD / 4 Def
-Body Slam
-Swagger
-Infestation
-Waterfall

Infestation the foe to trap them. Then Swagger them, and if they can get an attack off, the Attack boost won't matter, cuz Unaware! Body Slam has a good chance to paralyze, creating the infamous ParaFuse combo. Waterfall is used to wear the opponent down, and is STAB.

The stalling master strikes again! Quadsire isn't an evasive staller but it definitely packs a punch.

Quagsire @ Leftovers
Ability: Unaware
Nature: Impish
EV's 252 Def / 252 HP / 4 SDef

-Amnesia: This is why I invest EVs into Defense and HP, Amnesia makes his Special Defense on par with the increased Defense.
-Toxic: What's a good stalling Pokemon without Toxic?
-Recover: To restore health. It is very valuable with high Defense and high Special Defense from Amnesia.
-Protect: To keep you protected for time being.

Ultimate physical set up shutdown:

Quagsire @ Leftovers
Ability: Unaware
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SpD
Bold Nature

-Haze (Ruins stat gains)
-Scald (Damage plus good chance to burn)
-Recover (Sustain)
-Earthquake (STAB and super effective damage on Bisharp and Mega Charizard X)

This is to wall physical setup sweepers. Haze to ruin stat changes. Scald to damage and burn plus STAB.
Recover for sustaining high health, and Earthquake for STAB and high power. If your team is weak to physical setup attackers, this ruins them.

PFFFFFFFT! What are all ya'll doin'?! Here is how it's done!
Troll Staller Set
Class name - Ya Boi, Quagsire

EV Spread, Nature, and Ability: 252 HP, 252 SpDef, 4 Def, (and the forgotten 2, if you get the joke) - Bold (+Def, -Atk) Ability - Unaware
Explanation: These spreads offer a great defensive layout for Quagsire, giving him a badly needed boost to SpDef, and a 10% boost to a decent Defense. 252 HP adds to both of these defenses, allowing it to be even tankier. Unaware is a good ability for a bulky Pokemon to prevent getting killed by a sweeper that has previously set up.

Moveset:
1-Scald
2-Toxic
3-Stockpile
4-Recover
Explanation: Stockpile adds to his defenses even more, and Recover is to keep his health up. Toxic is to start dealing damage and stall out for KO's, and Scald is to cripple physical attackers, along with to damage Pokemon not affected by poison damage, but are affected by burn damage.

I run this set and it's very efficient and fun. Got a lot of people in battlespot rage quitting because of it.

Quagsire
Item: Leftovers
Nature: Relaxed
Ability: Unaware
252 HP/ 252 Def/ 4 SpD
Recover - Keeps Quagsire in the battle as long as possible
Amnesia - Gets rid of the lack of SpD
Swagger - Free confusion, since Quagsire doesn't care about the stat boost
Counter - Very useful, especially against lifeorb and choice band users

This makes most physical attackers basically useless. The only thing you really have to watch out for are hard hitting special attacks, taunt and grass types/moves.

Fling Set

Gen 8
Quagsire@ Iron Ball
Ability: Water Absorb/ Unaware
Nature: Adamant (+Atk, -Sp.atk)
EVs: 252 Atk/ 252 HP/ 4 Def/ Sp.def

Fling
Thief
Ice Punch
Earthquake/ Liquidation

Strategy: Use Fling with Iron Ball for a lot of damage. Use Thief once you use Fling so you can get your opponents item and fling that. Unaware could be useful in some situations. Water Absorb could be good in Double battles if you have another Pokemon with surf. Honestly, I don't like the Damp ability, but you can use it if you want.

  • Fling with Iron Ball results with a power of 130!
  • Thief deals damage and steals the opponent's item (so you can use fling again)
  • Ice Punch provides Coverage against grass types and can freeze the target
  • Earthquake gets STAB and has 100 power and accuracy; Liquidation has STAB and has a power of 85 and 100 accuracy plus it has a 20% chance to lower defense, which is good for this set

Tips: watch out for grass types as they can outspeed you and OHKO your Quagsire with a powerful grass type move.

I hope you like this moveset! :)

Gen 7 UU


Quagsire @ Leftovers
Ability: Unaware
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SpD
Relaxed Nature
- Earthquake
- Scald
- Recover
- Haze / Toxic

Unaware makes Quagsire a staple of Stall teams, who can't always handle threatening boosters like Swords Dance Scizor. Earthquake is STAB. Scald has a good chance to burn physical attackers, and the extra STAB boost is nice additional chip damage. Recover is reliable recovery, which almost any defensive Pokemon needs. Haze can get rid of the enemy's boosts to support its teammates, Toxic is passive damage.

Partners

Since Quagsire fits almost exclusively on Stall, Pokemon like Gligar, Alomomola, and Blissey are great partners. Blissey's Heal Bell is a remedy any annoying Toxic which has afflicted Quagsire. Blissey appreciates Quagsire's ability to deal with the common physical boosters in the tier, and Quagsire enjoys Blissey's ability to take special attacks.

Role: Unaware Stall/Sweeper Dual Purpose

Quagsire @ Leftovers
Ability: Unaware
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Def / 252 SpD
Bold Nature
- Waterfall
- Amnesia
- Curse
- Recover

You can use any chip move in the first slot, but I prefer Waterfall. This thing is just straight up annoying. No comment. A few Curses, or Amnesias, or both, and you just can’t kill it. Just stay away from Grass moves.

why bold nature if your running curse. Also don't use waterfall if you have bold nature.
