I'm a N00b at this, but your current set is pretty bad.

Absol w/Salac/Leftovers
Baton Pass
Swords Dance
Slash
Quick Attack

This is supposed to be phsyical/BPer

Swords Dance, followed by slash, nd if it starts to lose health, BP to a Phsyical sweeper or Reversal/flailer. Quick Attack... well its a useful move noetheless.

Well, ive got to say that set it well bleh.

Absol does have a decent Special Attack stat but its real strength is in Physical Attacks.

So a good moveset would be:

Absol@Leftovers
Swords Dance
Shadow Ball
Return
Baton Pass/Taunt/Substitute

Basic Sweeper Swords Dance up then attack, the last one is a choice depending on your taste.

Sorry to be picky, but I'm not the one to use defensive attacks, I just attack. And I also I don't use normal- type attacks. Oh and also, Return doesn't work for me. Absol has been traded many times that return is just useless.

How in the world do you get a salac berry? And how do you teach it Baton Pass? It doesn't learn it last time I checked.

All teams rated here, are normally being used for NB. So i can't rightyl say where one would get a salac berry(check serebii). anyway, baton pass is a breading move.

Uh, why do people always use Quick Attack? It only has 40 power, and I personally prefer Extremespeed. However, Absol can't learn that, so I'd say either Quick Attack (I don't know why you would, though) or Return/Frustration.

Namely for killing frail stuff that's quicker than you after a Swords Dance or two (think Alakazam and such). It's also good anti-Reversal. I wouldn't personally use it on Absol, but whatever. That's not to say I wouldn't use Quick Attack on CB Dodrio or such... Swords Dance + Quick Attack is cool, but it's better on Zangoose so I'd personally take advantage of Absol's Baton Pass and other unique abilities, rather than something someone else does better.

ABSOL - PRESSURE
@ Leftovers
~ Swords Dance
~ Shadow Ball
~ Aerial Ace / Hidden Power Fighting
~ Baton Pass

Also seen with Calm Mind, Ice Beam, Thunderbolt, Baton Pass. Thunder Wave is also quite cool, as is Magic Coat if you can pull it off.

i would usually have my Absol
slash
swords dance
thief (there for STAB because it doesn't learn bite, though it isn't very useful)
flail

i never use frustration/return ( i don't have that much faith in my pokemon..0.o..)
earthquake sounds good to me though.

Your set was fine, I just don't like Quick Attack without STAB.

This is the biznatch Absol I use, in FR/LG:

Absol(M) @ Brightpowder
Trait: Pressure
Relaxed Nature (+Def -Spd)
- Slash
- Thunder Wave
- Calm Mind
- Baton Pass

But that move set is made for my team, so yeah.. A lil tactic going on with my other mon etc. So yeah, your choice if you also like.. =P
It's a great moveset, for what I was doing. :tongue:

So unless your whole team are like mine, screw it. XD

Sorry, for NOT helping. :wink:

You shouldnīt do that. Also, i donīt know if itīs a good idea to post sharked movesets...

why wouldnt it be? they're regular moves just on different pokemon

01-12-2006, 01:51 AM
Theyīre not regular if you cheated. itīs not a good idea, because i donīt think that the mods would like to see people rating sharked movesets. They make close the threads.

Sigh
First of all, yah! Absol does learn bite, secondly Absol will fall to a lot of physical attacks so the calm minder is rendered useless (unless you've a timid absol)
Thirdly, you can obtain a salac berry from pokemon Colosseum (gcube) via collecting poke coupons.
Fourthly:

Absol & Salac/brightpowder
adamant/jolly nature
252 attack 252 speed 6 hp.
/*It does have poor defenses but you maybe able to s-dance up without getting hit with brightpowder*/
Swords dance
Quick attack
shadow ball
Hyper beam(as a last resort)/filler
