Battle Strategy Edit

Set-Up Sweeper Edit

  • Item: Life Orb
  • Ability: Sheer Force
  • Nature: Jolly
  • EVs: Attack and Speed
  • Moves:
    • Waterfall
    • Crunch
    • Ice Punch
    • Dragon Dance

Random Thoughts Edit

  • Torrent Feraligatr can use Earthquake and Aqua Jet, as they don't have secondary effects.
  • Earthquake will cause the Life Orb to trigger, but Bulldoze will not, making it a viable option.
  • Swords Dance in place of Dragon Dance works if you feel you don't need more speed.
