Special Sweeper


Dark Pulse
Nasty Plot
Hidden Power (Fighting)
Item: Life Orb
Ability: Flash Fire
EV spread: 68HP, 188Spd, 252 Atk

Mixed Sweeper

Ice Beam
ITEM: Life Orb
ABILITY: Rough Skin
EV Spread: 252Atk/252Spd/4Satk
NATURE: Hasty (+Spd, - Def)



Sucker Punch
Pain Split
Item: Leftovers
EV spread: 208HP, 184Atk, 116Spd

Spiritomb is better off in the lead slot.

I actually think Weavile is better with Life Orb or Choice Band. Since Rock and Steel Pokemon tend to be heavy, Low Kick is better over over Brick Break. You can also consider Ice Shard.

i wasn't sure about Choice Band or Life Orb, seeing as the former limits Weavile to 1 attack and the latter causes so much recoil, but of the two i think that Choice Band is the one i will go with. Ice Shard probably is a better choice than Ice Punch due to its priority, so i think that is what i will go with. thanks for the advice!
