With its new ability Drizzle, it can be a beast.

[email protected] Rock
Modest nature
Evs: speed+special attack

-Hydro pump/Scald/Surf =Boost from Rain Dance, STAB
-Hurricane =Perfect accuracy with drizzle/rain, STAB
-Roost =Healing
-Ice Beam =coverage

THIS IS AWESOME! it has a good SpA, plus a great Def. if you wanna have a bulk pelipper, go with scald. if you wanna sweep, go with surf, if you want an wall breaker, go with hydro pump. i would go with sclad since it can burn

Replace Fly with either of these moves:

Protect: Great when used with Toxic.

Roost: Great healing move that helps lower weakness to electric.

Air Cutter: If your Sp. Attack is high enough, this is a good move to use. It also has a good chance to deal a critical hit. Get it from Move Tutor.

I would choose Protect, it's my favorite move to teach Pelliper.

Ok, but this is for pokemon ruby so I cant use air cutter, but I will get protect!
I had a Pelliper in my Ruby version too until I finaly got a Milotic (so hard to get.) So yeah, all of my suggestions except for Protect were useless.
I felt this was too short to add as an answer. =3

Two words: Shock. Wave.
Protect is a lot better with Toxic. My Pelliper in HG knows:

Toxic, Protect, Surf, and Air Cutter.

Always teach Pelliper Protect and Toxic, otherwise you can't really call it a Pelliper.

Item: Leftovers
Ability: Rain-dish
Nature: Calm
EVs: 252 Defense, 252 S.Defense, 6 S.Attack


Roost is healing. Stock-pile is boosting. Scald is STAB and sometimes status. Toxic is Stalling, while Ice-beam would be coverage.

I know why no-one uses him. Not because he does not have very high stats, but because he looks ugly.
Stockpile makes great coverage. :P
Fixed, thanks trachy.
I love this set.  If you play doubles or triples, Sitrus berry is good for a quick burst of health while you set up.  if you're really lucky, the opponent won't even target Pelipper right away, giving you free turns to set up.

Pelipper @ Lefties/Life Orb

EVs: 248 HP / 8 Def / 252 SpA

Modest Nature (+SpA, -Atk)

  • Hydro Pump/Surf/Scald
  • Ice Beam
  • Hidden Power Grass
  • Roost

The EVs allow Pelipper to switch in 4 times without fainting while SR is up.
Hydro Pump is a bit more powerful than Surf, but has 80 accuracy and lower PP. So Surf becomes a solid alternative. Scald is an alternative as well if you want to fish for the burn. All three are of course STAB.
Ice Beam is used to hit Grass- and Flying-types, mainly.
Hidden Power Grass hits Water types.
And Roost heals it.

Why not Scald? That would be great for him.
Surf and Hydro Pump are move offensive, but I put it as an option.

Pelipper (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Keen Eye
EVs: 252 Def / 252 SAtk / 4 SDef
Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk)
- Toxic
- Protect
- Aqua Ring
- Surf

Wouldn't it be more effective to have the Rain Dish ability and to replace aqua ring with rain dance? Because then you would get healed and you power up surf.
But then he would have to waste more turns activating Rain-dance again.
I personally don't prefer aqua ring, I would replace it with roost for the turns that you can't use protect.

With a little bit of setup Pelipper can be very bulky.

This set lets Pelipper be a bulky Rain Abuser.
enter image description here
Pelipper @ Leftovers/ Rocky Helmet
Ability: Rain Dish
EVs: 252 HP / 52 Def / 204 SpD
Calm Nature
- Hurricane
- Roost
- Rain Dance
- Stockpile

Hurricane will never miss in the rain and is your STAB(Also may confuse the opponent making them a little less likely to hit you.)

Roost recovers your HP of course(Also Roost works well with Rocky Helmet, but Leftovers is a better choice with Rain Dish in my opinion.)

Rain Dance lets your Rain Dish ability recover your HP and makes Hurricane never miss.(Rain Dish + Leftovers + Roost will let you recover monstrous amounts of HP.)

Stockpile is the most important move on this move set because after using it twice you will double your Defense and Special Defense.

Now your biggest threat in this set is Electric type moves, but after 3x Stockpiles they shouldn't do enough damage to make you faint.

Also if you want you could throw a few PP ups on Hurricane or Roost. It wouldn't hurt if you did. (Also it would help Pelipper if it has good IVs in HP, Sp. Attack, Defense, Sp. Defense, and Speed.)

Pelipper may be slow, but he has enough speed to be a decent scarfer!

Trait: Rain Dish
Naive Nature
EVs: 252 SpA, 252 Spe, 4 Atk
~Knock Off
~Air Slash
~Ice Beam

It makes me so sad to do this, because of the Shiny Pelipper Incident of 2015... Anyways, here goes!
Pelipper @ Shell Bell
Nature: Modest
Roost, to regain health
Air Cutter, to get Flying STAB
Scald, to get Water STAB
Protect, because it's Pelipper

If you noticed anything strange about this answer, it's because of my Shiny Pelipper. That evil battle. That evil, evil, battle.

Pelipper @ Leftovers
Ability: Rain Dish
EVs: 148 HP / 196 SpA / 164 SpD
Bold Nature
- Aqua Ring
- Hurricane
- Stockpile
- Scald / Hydro Pump

For use in Rain Team

A great Pokemon that would heal 3/16 of its HP every turn with the stack of Rain Dish in rain, Aqua Ring, and Leftovers! Also somewhat bulky and a great user of Hurricane due to the rain. Stockpile makes you more undefeatable while you fire Scald and Hurricane at 'em!

I would go with this Pelipper:

[email protected] Vest (electric type Pokemon normally have special moves. but if you want roost so bad, go with a damp rock)

Trait: Drizzle (you want the rain and can't use Rain Dance due to assault vest)

Evs: 4 hp, 252 def, 180 spa, 72 spd

Nature: bold (+def -atk)


Ice Beam (coverage + YEAH)
Hurricane (GREAT move with the drizzle)
Scald (pelipper's defense is already high. with the burn, it will be insane. about the low power, STAB and the rain boost leaves it's power on 180)
Hydro Pump/Roost (if you do have the assault vest, go with hydro pump for wallbreak. hydro pump with stab and the rain dance boost leaves it power on about 250 ((247.5)). if you have the damp rock, go with roost for healing. I really suggest the assault vest one for be able to hung some electric moves, but is your choice)
