Thats dumb. Dig does nothing, because of vaporeons awful attack
Dig is horrible move for vaporeon because its pysical and vaporeon is a speical attacker?!
Look at his updated moveset.  Dig is not there.

Another one of my favorite eeveelutions and water type Pokemon, Vaporeon has great HP and Special attacks anyway this moveset is gonna make Vaporeon bulky so sit back and watch.

Item: Quick Claw or Wacan berry (Wacan berry if your going with ba trick room team)
Nature: Modest or Calm (if you really wanna make him/her more bulky agenst sp.atks then calm is for you but modest is great for sp.atking moves and for a trick room team Relaxed or Quiet will do the trick.)
Ability: Water Absorb
EVs: 252 Sp.Atk, 252 HP and 4 Sp.Def
- Surf/ Muddy Water/ Scald
-Ice Beam
-Acid Armour
-Baton Pass

Surf hits almost all opponents in double battles and has good power and accuracy and is STAB, Muddy Water is okay and it has the same power as surf and is STAB and has the chance of lowering the targets accuracy wich makes up for the opponents moves missing but has a little lack of accuracy for the move its self so its devistateing for it to miss and then, we have Scald wich has STAB has slightly less power but still good and I think it has a 20% of burning the target, Ice beam I for coverage agenst grass types and has a 10% chance of leaveing the target frozen, Acid Armour is to raise defense by 2 stages so use this two times and vaporeon is bulky agenst physical attacks and baton pass is to pass Acid Armour to Pokemon who have a lack of Defense. The Quick claw is used so Vaporeon has a little ofd a chance attacking first and wacan berry lowers the damage agenst electric type moves but can onley be used once and heres a little tip of how to use its Water Absorb, so if your Pokemon are attacked by water type moves then quickly switch to vaporeon and its HP will be restored and will gain imunity to that type.

Vaporeon (F) @ Assault Vest
Nature:Modest or Calm
Ability:Water Absorb
-Ice Beam
-Shadow Ball
-Hidden Power(Fire)

I noticed no one else had an Assault Vest build for Vaporeon and this is the build I use. The point of this Vaporeon is to be super bulky and deal a good amount of damage to anything it comes up against. I have used this Vaporeon to sweep before but I rely on it mostly to take hits.

Surf does a good amount of damage and has great accuracy. Also it hits everything on the field

Ice Beam should be a staple for every water type. With this move Vaporeon can not only KO grass types easily but also becomes an efficient dragon slayer

Shadow Ball is for coverage. It does a good amount of damage and allows Vaporeon to easily take out Ghost and psychic types should it come up against them

Hidden Power(Fire) is also for coverage. It gives Vaporeon another move to use against Grass types, but that's not its primary focus; Steel types have become much more prevalent since Fairy types came out. With HP(fire) Vaporeon has a move that will surprise the opponent and take out some Steel types easily

Vaporeon (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Water Absorb
EVs: 252 HP, 252 Sp. Atk, 4 Speed
Timid Nature (+Speed, -Attack)
-Hydro Pump/Scald (awesome stab move/Scald to inflict burn)
-Shadow Ball/HP Ground (good coverage moves, HP Ground mainly for electric types)
-Aqua Ring (increased healing of HP w/ the Leftovers)
-Ice Beam/HP Ice
(coverage against unwanted Grass types)

*If you are going to put Hidden Power on your Vaporeon, you can't have both HP Ground and HP Ice. You must choose between one of them.

This is a set that changes depending on the change of one move.
Vaporeon(M) Modest
item:zoom lens
Hydro pump/muddy water
rain dance
ice beam
The purpose of zoom lens is to increase accuracy by 20%.Since vaporeon is slow it will always trigger.
This makes muddy water have 100% accuracy (same for hydro pump).
Use rain dance which will boost you water type moves and allow you to use rest to insta-heal.
The power of the water type moves(with rain dance) will have a whooping 100% power boost(50% rain dance,50% stab).
This means hydro pump can have 220 power!You can also use muddy water which has only 180 power but it has a 30% accuracy lower. So make your choice.I hope this helped.
