    What would be a good EV spread for a mixed sweeper Farfetch'd with a Modest nature?

    ....no, I'm not joking.

    Why would you use Farfetch'd over things like Zapdos, Togekiss, Staraptor, Fearow, Dodrio, etc?

    My guess as a gimmick? I mean, there's not much more satisfying than watching your opponent fall to a little duck with a stick.
    If I were you, I'd run Air Cutter, simply because you might get a Critical Hit.

    Because it's a shiny. :/

    That, and I don't plan on using it in the Battle Frontier or anything, I just want to actually make it useful.

    It wont work... Air cutter... uproar? it has a special movepool of zilch.
    If we are having a battle and I disconnect, it is 100% unintentional; my power goes off often and each time my modem resets.

    Gone until Aug, 10 or something for a trip w/out net access. C u after that. If I suddenly dissapear after that you can bet I got bad grades on my IGCSE's, since results are coming out the week afterwards.

    Quick question, what's a good STAB steel-type physical attack for a Lucario?
    I have claimed: Cross Poison ~ Toxicroak ~ Drizzle ~ Water Stone

    Bullet Punch, if anything. Steel and Fighting are pretty redundant together, so most people just use a Fighting STAB and coverage moves without Steel; Bullet Punch is even outshined by ExtremeSpeed!

    I can level him up for Extreme Speed tonight then. What's a good coverage set? Right now I have Close Combat, Poison Jab (will be replaced by Extreme Speed) Ice Punch and Bulk Up.

    Dont use close combat with bulk up since it negates the defense boost. SD is better then. Also, I would say use crunch over ice punch because it hits ghosts which are immune to your other two moves. However Ice Punch is an Option to suprise gliscor.

    Ice Punch is good for ground, grass, flying and dragon types. Particularly ground, a weakness as a steel type, and dragon, which can always be a real pain.

    SD over bulk up, sure thing.

    I'd have to re-breed for crunch. Any possibility payback could work? I realise this may sound lazy and all, but I've already had to work a week on him, and I don't battle online to often.

    Well, Lucario wants to be fast, so Payback won't work. The best "lazy" solution would be Shadow Claw.

    oh man i love gimmicky sets they're my favourite!

    (what Hidden Power type/power does it have? that may come in handy)

    decent SpA moves for farfetch'd:

    Swift (for STAB also hits both opponents)
    Air Cutter (for STAB crit hax & hits both opponents)
    Heat Wave (hits both opponents)
    Twister (hits both opponents)

    those 4 are great for double battles (edit: okay Twister sucks if you have HP ground or fighting use that - if not then u-turn could work instead)

    you could stick a Choice item on it or even a Life Orb... i won't lie it will struggle in battle but hey i'm feeling the love for shinies dude i always use my "random encounter" ones over the competitive ones i bred - they just feel... special [needs]!



    *BIG EDIT*

    oh right maybe i should've read that you wanted EV spreads not moves (doh!)

    well it ain't gonna take much punishment so a simple 252SpA/252Spe/4... would be best with a modest nature using mainly special moves - look at the HP IV to see if you will benefit from adding 4HP EV's with the "switch into stealth rock" calculations if not then stick the last 4 EV's into Atk in case you bang a physical move in (like u-turn)

    tl;dr = max Spe / max SpA / don't waste EV's on Def or SpD

    Default Drifblim moveset?

    I have a nice, Timid Drifloon, but I don't know a good and effective Drifblim set. The ability of the Drifloon is Unburden.

    Default Re: Drifblim moveset?

    You'll want to use a moveset that takes full advantage of Unburden. I recommend using this moveset:

    Drifblim @ Petaya Berry
    Trait: Unburden
    EVs: 4 Def / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
    Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
    - Shadow Ball
    - Hidden Power [Fighting] / Thunderbolt
    - Calm Mind
    - Substitute

    A set such as this is referenced in Smogon's Drifblim analysis, found here.
