    Zen Headbutt/Natural Gift

    Natural Gift coupled with Liechi Berry gives you a nice 80 BP Grass attack to ward off Quagsire and Gastrodon, otherwise stick with Life Orb.
    Yeah, that's what I was thinking. I just wanted to make sure I hadn't overlooked anything. That's about the best you can do with somethign as god awful as Rampardos. Thanks for the help.

    For an Anti-Lead Starmie, is it better to run Energy Ball or Grass Knot to deal with bulky waters like Swampert. Also please explain why.

    It still works, I've been using it myself and it breaks walls easily. And, it isn't on the Smogon analysis because it's a HG/SS move.

      I currently have a Sceptile using Leaf Storm, Energy Ball, Dragon Pulse, and Focus Blast. Due to Focus Blast's low accuracy, is there a viable alternative?

        You generally don't need Energy Ball and Leaf Storm on the same set unless you're running a choice specs set. Even then, your only other options for special attacks are Solar Beam or a Hidden Power, with HP Ice being your best option.

            Sceptile really does not learn another special fighting attack, I'm not sure what your want to do with your sceptile, It seams your trying to specialize in his special moves so the other really note worthy special moves are giga drain, possibility hyper beam if he is a ingame set. Other then that, there isn't much that you can replace Focus Blast with unless you go physical with Brick Break.

            Hidden Power is another option, but it probably loses on a lot of KOs so it is generally it's better to just stick with Focus Blast.

                    I would recommend Gardevoir to set up screens for him to make his setting up just a bit easer. It can also take the nasty thunderbolts, and energy balls that can get aimed at him.

                    Swords Dance would be better because it boosts the power of Aqua Jet more. If something outruns you, just use that, and it probably OHKO, or at least do a good amount of damage.

                    And, if you use Dragon Dance, you really don't need Aqua Jet as you already are fast, but it does hit revenge killers I guess.

                      +1 Adamant Gatr is still outsped by 390+ .... I guess SD Gatr is still good thanks to Aqua Jet , it outclasses Empoleon at SD + Priority ( which this set of Empoleon isnt really seen like the SubPetaya )

                      Only by Swellow and Electrode when running Adamant Nature aside from Choice Scarfers though, which is still good. ;o

                        Would Brine be a good option for this Lapras:

                        Lapras @ Leftovers
                        192 HP / 112 Def / 160 SpA / 44 SpD
                        Surf / Ice Beam / Thunder Bolt / Brine

                        Or should I just stick with Toxic instead of Brine?

                          Dunno about Lapras but Brine seems to be a bad Idea since you already got Surf ....

                            I'm thinking about trying to EV train Tangrowths Special defense as much as possible (252 EV points i think). Is that a good idea or should i focus only on making him a physical wall?

                            His base Special Defense stat is 50 btw.

                            Brine is totally inferior to surf, definitely use Toxic so you can deal with dedicated special walls that Lapras can't hit through.

                            No stick to physical defense. Eving sp.def wont help and even more so since he lacks resistances on that side.
