Mine is EV trained in Sp. Attack. It knows:

Air Cutter: STAB, good chance for critical hit.

Dragon Pulse: STAB, good power, high accuracy, used to deal with Dragon types.

Flamethrower: Good power, high accuracy, chance to burn, used to deal with Ice types.

Dragon Dance: Good stat move.

I just gone into competitive play in sm so I dont have alot of experience. I got one from trade so I dont have access to mega stones. I dont know alot about the stab buisness though

EVs:252 SAtk/126 SDef/126 Def/6 Spd

Nature: Gentle (+SpDef/-Def)

Moonblast (covers dragon)

Ice beam (use agains others)

Steel Wing (A bunch of you still forgot the Fairy weakness)

Move of choice (I chose Sky attack, STAB I think)

I dont like solar beam becuase it only covers rock. I dont care about electric, you can use the move of choice as earthquake.

I got a good moveset for a Tank Mega Altaria to serve as a Physical and Special Tank or for short a Mixed Tank but it's only a Mixed Tank as a mega so best to make sure every turn it has it's a Mega

Ability: Cloud Nine - Make sure your opponent doesn't use the weather to their advantage. As Mega: Pixilate - useless
EV Spread: 252 HP, 4 Atk, 126 Def, 126 Sp. Def
Nature: Relaxed
-Earthquake/Bulldoze - Take care of the Fairy Type Weakness and with Bulldoze you'll be able to be faster soon
-Steel Wing - Take care of your remaining 2 weaknesses, Fairy and Ice due to the dragon type
-Roost - Make sure you remain alive, this is your mixed Tank so you want to make sure Altaria doesn't faint
-Moonblast- STAB, plus your best best is the fairy typing with more advantages

This is for a Mixed Tank Mega Altaria but if your Altarianite gets knocked off or stolen or anything else before you can mega evolve you may also wanna replace Moonblast with Sky Attack which is STAB and powerful or Dragon Rush/Dragon Pulse, I hope I helped!

You know, Altaria is better as a Special Attacker.

I'll give you two sets, special and physical.

Altaria @Altarianite
Ability: Natural Cure---->Pixilate
EVs: 252 Sp. Atk, 252 Spe, 4 HP
Nature: Modest/Timid
Dragon Pulse (STAB)
Uproar/Moonblast (STAB)
Flamethrower (Steels? Freezers?)
Roost (To live)

Altaria @Altarianite
Ability: Natural Cure---->Pixilate
EVs: 252 Atk, 200 Spe, 58 Def
Dragon Rush (STAB, egg move)
Play Rough (STAB, egg move)
Earthquake (For Steel and Poison types)
Iron Tail (Ice? Fairies? What are they?)

Personally, I prefer the physical set, but the special set is really good with Uproar, whichever turns into a Fairy type move with m-Altaria's ability.

Altaria @ Altarianite
Nature: Modest / Timid
Trait: Pixilate
EVs: 252 Sp. Attack / 252 Speed / 4 Sp. Defense

  • Moonblast
  • Dragon Pulse
  • Refresh/Roost
  • Ice Beam/Flamethrower

Moonblast and Dragon Pulse are STAB.

Refresh is to cure paralysis, poison, and burns. Roost is to restore your HP.

Ice Beam and Flamethrower are for coverage, although I prefer Flamethrower to cover Ice and Steel weaknesses.
