This is the thread to discuss your favorite movesets ingame. Donot discuss movesets for competitive battling here.
Gardevoir @ TwistedSpoon
My emerald Gardevoir was arguably my most successful Pokemon ever when I was younger. I have always loved setup-sweepers and my love for them started from here. I would start off with reflect and then calm mind upto +2 or more and then sweep with the 2 moves here. It did get walled by stuff like Cacturne but it was definitely one of my most reliable Pokemon then I used a lv 53 gardevoir(with this set) to defeat Wallace's entire team. I even used this in the battle tower and got to 20 or so victories, a record in those days!
Gyarados@ Shell bell
Yep, another setup-sweeper and also my flag ship set for 4th generation.I have used this set in each and every gen-4 game.Just setup Dragon Dance, get to +4 or so and use the appropriate move to destroy virtually everything. I used this set to defeat cynthia with my underleveled team. Just got +6 with DD by using a couple of X-spdef to soften spiritomb's attack. Has never disappointed me so far.
Staraptor @ AmuletCoin
Another of my mainstays in d/p/p. Never needed a boosting move. Brave bird kills a lot of stuff. Close Combat is just sexy. Quick attack always helped and U-turn was great to remove the CC defensive drops and also to abuse Intimidate again.
1) Volcarona @ Leftovers
Fly / Psychic
Wow, just wow. The power this thing wields after a couple of turns of setup is mind-boggling. I have used this thing and this thing only to defeat Alder and Cynthia atleast 50 times now. Nothing can match this buggers power. I used psychic for the last moveset in the past, but fly provides more utility since this guy is the only member in my team while hatching eggs thanks to its flame body ability.
2) Ferrothorn @ Rocky helmet
Gyro ball / Iron Head / Buldoze
Leech Seed / Payback
I have used this thing twice in my previous playthroughs and trust me, it just refuses to die. Curse boosts his attack and defense making it harder to kill this thing(as if it was easy in the first place). It also makes this thing slower which is great with Gyro ball. I used Iron head once since Gyro Ball has low PP and even Bulldoze to hit stuff like Klinklang harder. Power whip is power whip, really powerful while in the last slot, I used payback before(which also becomes more powerful since it goes second.) In my second playthrough, I bred one with Serperior for leech seed. I now start off a battle with leech seed to increase this thing's longevity even more! Rocky Helmet also helps do even more damage to my rival mon. Fire mons give some problems but I used a flash fire Chandelure to help.
High Jump Kick
Rock Slide / Dragon Claw
My infamous moxie Scrafty. Bulk up, then spam High Jump Kick. Moxie makes this thing deadlier after each KO. Crunch and Rock Slide / Dragon Claw give more coverage. Seriously, this thing made Grimsley and Caitlin cry.
So, tell me, which are / were your favorite and most effective movesets in the games?
