PokeBase Meta Battle Subway - RMT

Suggestions for my Gallade.

0 votes


Trait: Steadfast
Item: None
Stats: 198 HP / 206 Atk / 137 Def/ 117 S.Atk/ 167 S.Def/ 147 Spd (He's only lvl 70)
Impish Nature (+Def, -SAtk)

  • Leaf Blade
  • Night Slash
  • Psycho Cut
  • X-Scissor

Leaf Blade is for type coverage, as is Night Slash, but X-Scissor was a mistake. Psycho Cut is a must for the STAB.

I'm looking for a competitive moveset for this, not in-game. Any suggestions welcome, but I don't use moves such as Substitute, Perish Song, Destiny Bond, or anything that doesn't do damage, i.e. Sand Attack, Growl, etc.. I need the moveset to be something Gallade can use at lvl 100 as well. Also, this is my main Attacker for my team, and I will have the full in my About Me, since they aren't up to level yet, and I lack their info. Also, this is on Platinum, not BW.

And thanks to DarkTyphlosion for the help today.

*Pokemaster edit: Just so the mods and editors are aware, I am letting this one slide at the moment so please do not remove it.*

You'll probably want to use a Choice Band/Scarf as an item if not using status moves such as Swords Dance or Bulk Up.
Quik suggestion is that you use atk evs instead of spatk, you have no spatk moves
Keep in mind this is a test post, not to be taken for criticism yet. It's only for instructional purposes at the moment.
How's this look, Dark?
Thanks, guys. I may go for Swords Dance, but what about Close Combat? Would that help?
Close combat would be great as would drain punch if you run swords dance.
Okay, thanks blobyolo

I think you should replace X-scissor with a good fighting type attack.i.e drain punch or brick break.it really is up to you.
