Chatot is my favorite bird Pokemon ever, haha. I always loved the squawky parrot ever since I raised my first one back in 2007. Anyway, Chatot boasts being the only Normal/Flying Pokemon to be best in Special Attack, meaning that it has much better type coverage than other bird Pokemon.

My recommendations are the following:

(Special-based, Flying type, meaning decent coverage, and STAB. Scream REALLY loud into that Mic so that the chance of confusing the opponent rises to 30% =P)

Hyper Voice
(High Base Power, good for Double Battles, and more STAB. Definitely Chatot's most reliable attack)

Roost/Nasty Plot/Steel Wing
(Roost is great for that Reliable Recovery, but from personal experience, Chatot doesn't have the Defenses and bulk to use Roost efficiently, so I'd choose Nasty Plot. However, it's an Egg Move, so you'd have to breed with Honchkrow to get it. If you don't want to go to all that trouble, just stick with Roost. If you want all Offensive, get Steel Wing for a Defense boost and dealing with Rock-Types)

Heat Wave

(Melts Steel-types that try to wall you, and eliminates that Ice Weakness. Great Base Power, and is also very reliable)

Chatot has an incredibly complimenting movepool. I'm glad they didn't screw Chatot up, by giving it a bunch of Physical moves. With a movepool full of Special moves, Chatot is very usable, but make sure it's very strong, otherwise others will be 2HKO'ing you like there's no tomorrow. If you're afraid of that happening, stick Featherdance in there somewhere, to cripple your opponents.

Actually, with chattr, theres already a 50% chance to confuse.
"Chatot ... only Normal/Flying Pokemon to be best in Special Attack."
Noctowl's HP and Special Defense are both higher than its Special Attack.

Boomburst. Nuff said.

[email protected] Orb
Ability: Tangled Feet

Chatter- STAB that confuses.

Boomburst- STAB. Hyper Beam with no recharge.

Heat Wave- Coverage.

Roost/Nasty Plot- Healing or guarenteed OHKO with Boomburst.

Timid or Modest. 252 Spe/252 SAtk/4 SDef EVs

I tried breeding a heat wave zubat w/ a chatot, and it didn't work, so for now, it's boomburst OR heat wave
I love the idea, but Heat Wave involves PokeBank with most people don't have. Plus, it's defense is horrible. I know it's speed and sp. atk. cover for it but even with that high speed. Many things can defeat it in speed then sweep it. This would be HORRIBLE in smogon.

[email protected] Band (less chance to faint one-shot at chatot's frailty)
Keen Eye (Your boomburst will always hit)
252 SpA, 252 Spd, 4HP

Boomburst - Why not? 140 base, STAB, 100 accuracy, no drawbacks
Chatter - Always confuses, 65 power, STAB.
Nasty Plot/Heat Wave - So your Boombursts and your Chatters do a ton of damage (if you're good at predicting switches and the like)/ Ice coverage or beating Steel types trying to wall you.
Roost - Again, predictions. Use predicting a switch, but bear in mind that you'll be hit Super-Effectively by Fighting type, but not ice or electric. Chatter won't be STAB for the next turn.

Enjoy sweeping! Although you could perhaps get a Cosmic Power user to Baton Pass if there is one so that your Chatot can take a hit or two. I hope you like my first ever post, please feel free to improve it or correct it! Thanks for reading this far, too. Means a lot!

Boombird (Chatot) @ Petaya Berry
Ability: Big Pecks
EVs: 84 HP / 252 SpA / 172 Spe
Timid Nature
- Boomburst / Substitute
- Chatter
- Heat Wave
- Nasty Plot

A Chatot on Pokemon Showdown I saw went trololololing my team and kept on chattering, confusing my Pokemon and making them not attack the foe. It was worse because I was also paralyzed too! He did this under a Sub and didn't even have Boomburst, which I would recommend for this set. Petaya berry raises your SpAtk when HP is 1/4 or lower, a great combo with nasty Plot the next turn.

Chatard (Chatot) (M) @ Leftovers
Ability: Tangled Feet
Shiny: Yes
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
IVs: 31 All
- Chatter (Flying Special Attack Move, 100% chance to confuse opponent, 100 Accuracy and 65 Power)
- Substitute (User takes 1/4 its max Hp to put a substitute)
- Boomburst ( Normal Special Attack Move, 140 Power with 100 Accuracy however hits adjacent Pokemon)
- Nasty Plot ( Raises the User's Sp atk by 2)

I called this the God Chatard Moveset. This is how this Pokemon works:
1) Two options for the first move, you either: Switch out if the opponent is a faster Pokemon or Use Chatter straight away

2) You then use substitute and hope for them to hit themselves. Two options again. If they don't hit themselves and destroy ur substitute repeat this step, but if they hit themselves use Nasty Plot

3) Now that ur stats are boosted keep spamming boomburst and chatter depending on what Pokemon ur versing

Note: If you want you can give Chatard heatwave but I personally think its unnecessary cause of Boombursts power. Also I would say you should have a ground type in your team because if your opponent pulls out a electric type that is faster then chatot ur screwed so straight away switch to that ground type. Item is leftovers cause when you use substitute you will need to recover back the health.
