Can you post a more.... agressive moveset please? :3
seriously dr_clock, you don't have to use a full team of OverUsed dragons with draco meteor and outrage in your team you know...
You could run into some problems considering how common taunt is, but it's still a pretty good moveset. don't give clock too much trouble though. Froslass can still take advantage of some sweeping things, everyone has their own approach.
i wasn't really referring to froslass, but it seems clock only wants offensive sweepers.
@Hex: 150 base stat would be awesome but I am not really a fan of dragons. Also I dislike the moves Draco Meteor and Outrage, Dragon Pulse and Dragon Claw are awesome enough.
Let's see... the weakest attack base stat in my team is 70. On a planned linoone. With belly drum. Then 90 I think (I'm not counting the special sweepers).
Never mind. I just sometimes think low base power or very unoffensive movesets are a bit of a waste.
Exactly what I use. Upvote.

Froslass was now FORBIDDEN IN SNOW

Froslass (F) @ Bright Powder
Ability: Snow Cloak
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Hex
- Thunder Wave
- Attract
- Hail/ Ice Beam
In hail and with Bright Powder + Attract the only hit chance was

3.75%

, which was literally impossible to be hit. Only if opponent has always hit moves will their moves hit, which makes Froslass FORRBIDDEN and could kill others fast, Hex works super well after you Thunder Wave the opponent and makes them slow and might not move.... THIS SET WAS AWESOME

This. Is. Amazing.
Thank you! :)
thanks for all the upvote, guys! So happy!
the reason why this set isn't very common is because it's pretty much a one trick-pony. He can figure out your strategy then send in a pokemon like a genderless/female ground type. In ubers, which is the only format where sand veil/snow cloak isn't banned, most legendary or mythical pokemon there are genderless so it's not very popular
I like it! However, I am going for more of an offensive Froslass for my Crown Tundra playthrough so if you want more of a sweeper Froslass I would add both Ice Beam and Hail. Thanks for the idea!

Froslass

Froslass # Focus Sash
Nature: Jolly (^Speed -Sp Atk)
Ability: Cursed Body / Snow Cloak
~ 252 Speed EVs / 252 Atk EVs / 6 HP EVs

  • Destiny Bond

  • Endure

  • Ice Shard

  • Confuse Ray


I guess you could say this moveset is very similar to the others, but I focus on a bit more different things. The main idea of this set is to annoy your opponent like crazy. Ice Shard is there as your only attack, which is a nice priority move for any last second situations, or for finishing off foes. the main idea is Confuse Ray, Endure, and Destiny Bond. Put up confusion to maybe force a switch, or just annoy them; than continue to spam Ice Shard until you are starting to take a good amount of damage, where you can use Endure, and if you are faster the next turn, Destiny Bond! Than BAM, you got yourself a kill.

Great moveset! But(theres always a but) keep in mind that while you may get a kill with destiny bond, you also lose a valuble safe-switcher(A pokemon that can switch in to counter a normal or fighting type move)and/or sweeper

The Queen (Froslass) (F) @ Leftovers

Trait: Snow Cloak

EVs: 252 Def / 252 SDef / 4 Spd

Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)

  • Substitute
  • Pain Split
  • Spikes
  • Confuse Ray / Shadow Ball

Substitute breaks down your health, and protects you from status.
Pain Split does hard damage to your foe, and recovers your lost hp.
Spikes is for hazard setting, I use Frosslass on a team where I already have a Toxic Spikes setter and a Stealth Rocks setter, so yeah.
Confuse Ray is optional, but Shadow Ball is best for finishing off opponents, and for Taunt :/

by
Can you substitute shadow ball for ice beam or blizzard- (for blizzard you can put hail instead of spikes bc it’s also hazard)

Physical

Froslass @ Choice Band / Life Orb
Ability: Cursed Body
EV spread: 252 Atk / 252 Spe / 4 Def
Jolly Nature

  • Triple Axel
  • Poltergeist
  • Ice Shard / Crunch / Trick
  • Spikes

Very epic set lol. Triple Axel is extremely powerful STAB that breaks Sash and Substitute, a very good offensive move. Poltergeist is another brutally powerful STAB that only fails against noobs or Acrobatics/Unburden users. Crunch is a filler move, Ice Shard is STAB priority, Trick messes with defensive Pokémon. Spikes is residual damage and isn't actually that bad with Band since it goes up to 3 layers, so unlike Stealth Rock and Toxic, it doesn't fail the 2nd turn it is used. Pursuit's removal is a big boon for this Froslass set. If you're still not fond of Choiced Spikes, you can always run Trick.

Gen 8

Froslass (F) @ Focus Sash
Ability: Cursed Body
Nature: Timid (+ Spe - Atk)
EV's: 252 SpA/252 Spe/4 SpD
IV's: 0 Atk

This is mainly an anti-lead/sweeper set, and a shut down to the annoying stalls and walls. Pretty much Smogon's standard Ubers set, but not quite the suicide lead in this case.

Moveset:
- Shadow Ball
- Taunt
- Ice Beam
- Destiny Bond

Shadow Ball and Ice Beam are both STAB and coverage. Shadow Ball is for blasting, but it's usually Ice Beam that should be your to-go move, as taunting a wall successfully will give you 2-3 attack chances at a Freeze regardless if your opponent stays in or switches. Even if you do lose the attacking game, Destiny Bond is there to ensure a takedown.

Timid Nature is to make max use out of your speed, and Focus Sash is to ensure you'll live to pull out DB. Cursed Body is always welcome if some annoying wall decides to go at it with you and spam their singular attacking move. Combining that with Taunt will give you a very nice Struggle in return and force a switch into a potential Ice Beam Freeze.

Froslass (F) @ Focus Sash

Trait: Cursed Body

EVs: 252 SAtk / 252 Spd

Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)

  • Ice Beam
  • Thunderbolt
  • Psychic
  • Destiny Bond

All right starting off with Ice Beam for some fresh STAB, Thunderbolt gives coverage against annoying bulky waters, Psychic also gives coverage against a few types, Fighting types often carries stone edge too so yeah.
Destiny Bond works well with Timid max speed and the focus sash wich those annoying entry hazards break... so yeah might be a good idea to switch in if you see way too annoying hazards coming.

Froslass #478
*Legends in snowy regions say that a woman who was lost on an icy mountain was reborn as Froslass. (Alpha Sapphire)

Such a tragic story. Coincidentally, there are Pokemon that appear to doomed travellers, like Articuno. Is it possible that these maidens met the Legendary Bird only to be frozen by it? shivers Ghost types...

Froslass/ Modest (+SpAtk/- Atk) or Timid (+Speed/ -Atk) / Cursed Body
240 Speed/ 240SpAtk/ 20 SpDef/ 8 Hp
Item: Focus Sash

Captivate/ Frost Breath/ Pain Split/ Destiny Bond

One of Froslass' greatest asset is it's Speed. It can outspeed most Pokemon, especially with Speed investment. This particular set would make a great Doubles Froslass. Paired with Taunt Pranksters, such as Whimsicott or Mega- Banette, Froslass can perform unhindered by disruption. Captivate takes advantage of it's Gender to harshly lower the SpAtk of Male Pokemon. Given her frail nature, this can increase her survivability so that she can use Pain Split to average her Hp with her aggressor. Alternatively, taking a big hit may activate your Focus Sash. Although Ice is considered a weak typing Defensively, on the attack it can cripple your opponents. Frost Breath has reliable accuracy and hits for critical damage, boosting this attack from 60 to 120 to 180, considering STAB. Thats some cold breath. If all else fails, Froslass can utilize Destiny Bond to take her opponent with her. Cursed Body has a 30% chance to disable one of your opponent's moves. This can help to gauge when to use Destiny Bond.

Gen VI
Froslass (F) @ Sash
Trait: Cursed Body
EVs: 4 HP, 252 Sp Atk, 252 Speed
Timid nature
CONFUSE RAY (yes, confuse ray)
Destiny Bond (for when the Sash leaves you with 1hp)
Captivate (might as well. almost every Pokemon I encounter in almost every battle is a male)
- ANOTHER OPTION: Attract. I mean, why not? The opponent will be less likely to attack, and that way you could replace Pain Split with a damaging move, like my personal favorite of Froslass', Draining Kiss.
Pain Split (why wouldn't you use Pain Split?)

Of course, if you're into fast and aggressive:

Confuse Ray (what? it's my favorite status move)
Draining Kiss (draining move AND deals with Dark type menaces)
Ice Beam (STAB, may freeze)
Shadow Ball (STAB, may lower Sp Def of opponent)

But I wouldn't suggest an aggressive moveset. It's very risky.

MOVE SET
-confuse ray
-thunder wave
-hail
-blizzard
ABILITY
snow cloack
ITEM
bright powder
STATS
252 speed 252 HP
Timid
This stratigy is purly based on not taking any damage at all. By using confuse ray first you got a 50% at not getting hit then follow with thunder wave making it even harder to hit you and follow with hail will have froslass fully set up. with froslass ability to evaid attacks in hail storms plus bright powder 9% evaision increase and its almost impossibe to hit froslass. blizzard to be added as it doesnt miss in hail and it does 110 damage all that together makes it one of the best Pokemon. plus if the opponent keeps switching you can parlize there entire team
Note: people I use this on almost always quit

Froslass @ Ghostium Z
Ability: Cursed Body
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
- Spikes
- Ice Beam
- Shadow Ball
- Destiny Bond

Start of with Spickes for some good chip damage if they switch in. Then follow up with ice beam/ Z shadow ball, and if you think you are going to be knocked out then use destiny bond.

Froslass @ Never-Melt Ice
Ability: Snow Cloak
EVs: 4 Atk / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
Hasty Nature
- Hail (Its good to have hail with Snow Cloak and blizzard cause blizzard does not miss in hail and snow cloak it will be immune where opponent will take hail damage)
- Blizzard (110 power move that cannot miss in hail)
- Poltergeist / Shadow ball (I would prefer Poltergeist but its little low accurate and it does not work without opponent having held item it would not need Shadow ball but its also 110 power move like Blizzard)
- Water Pulse (Good to have counter for fire types and it can confuse the target)

by
Froslass would be immune to hail damage anyway due its ice typing. All Snow Cloak does is boost the evasion in hail.

Froslass @ Wide Lens
Snow Cloak
252 Atk/252 Spe/4 SpD
+Spe -SpA

  • Poltergeist
  • Hail
  • Triple Axel
  • Confuse Ray

This thing will KILL if you get hail and confusion off. It's super fast and pretty strong. Poltergeist is strong STAB that reveals a target's held item. Triple Axel wreaks havoc on everything. Confuse Ray is for missing chance, as well as Hail/Snow Cloak. If you get it going, it's a sure sweeper.
