I'm training up my Rhydon and I can't think of a good last move, here's what I got:

Rhydon@Quick Claw(This is not a strategic set)
Trait:Lightning Rod (Double battler)
Bold Nature(!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
Mega Horn
Rock Blast(don't start with the debate of Blast.v.Slide, it's easier to get it with)
EQ
And I use Stomp as a training move, I use it with Flyers (especially my P-per and Ninjask) so that they are protected from the elec moves and that I can Quake freely.

Now the question is, what about the last move?!!!!!!!!!!!!

Replace Megahorn with Subsititute if you don't want to be pwned by Special Sweepers. yes Rhydon learns SwordDance.

I see you have Megahorn on there... If you're willing to get a choice band, do it. Rock Blast, Earthquake, Focuspunch, and Megahorn are a pretty nasty set if you can predict well.

If not though, I suggest Focus Punch over Megahorn and Substitute as your last move.

Rhydon@Lefties
-Adamant

-Earthquake
-Rock Slide/Rock Blast/Megahorn
Substitute/Megahorn/Swords Dance
-Focus Punch/Megahorn/Swords Dance

Rhydon needs the STAB moves to deal damage and obviously Megahorn is for Celebi and SD to boost it and the STABs up. Subpunching is also standard as it gets 101 Subs.

Rhydon works also with Counter/Rest/Earthquake/filler @Chesto as a little fun set. Counter something like Earthquake or a Fighting move, then Rest away the damage, but this set only attracts the special sweepers, as Rhydon generally does anyways.

If you can predict extremely well, rather. Rhydon is so slow, it doesn't work at all as CB'er imo. Your Rock Slide against Charizard will be met with a swift switch to Milotic, who doesn't mind taking that damage with Recover on the set and owns you with Surf. I prefer SubPunch on Rhydon. Set up the Sub, then Focus Punch the special sweeper who switches in. It does more damage than Rock Slide, too.

Milotic is so overrated. If you're in against a Charizard with a Substitute setup, odds are they'll stick around if you haven't shown Rock Blast yet and die to it (barring that 20 miss rate).

If they do know about Rock Blast, I'd use Earthquake. Even if they go to Milotic, you will deal more than 50% and force a Recover; if they decide to Surf, drop in your Zapdos (it's uncommon not to have Zapdos with Rhydon because they help each other so much) and wave to the silly Milotic. Odds are, it will run and has lost any and all ability to drop into your Rhydon. That's pretty sweet IMO.

Of course, with proper paralysis support I still believe nothing beats...

~ Swords Dance
~ Substitute
~ Earthquake
~ Rock Slide
@ Leftovers

It's actually scarier than DDTar with a healthy amount of paralysis. Flygon and Claydol can bite me... there are an insane amount of counters for both of them so picking one that covers both shouldn't be too hard.

This is really annoying!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am stuck with a Bold Nature so stop saying Adamant! My Rhydon is lvl 100 with an Effort Ribbon so don't say the EV's! I am not using breeding or Move Tutor to get Rock Slide instead of Rock Blast because I am sticking with this one and it is staying on my Sapphire plus, it's a 2v2 battler so Rock Blast is more useful! As I said 2v2 Battler with my Pelliper so it has Lightningrod! Stomp was a training move! I am having it with Quick Claw! Substitute is Move Tutor, repeat what I said before! Same with Swords Dance!

I had to get that out and I am sorry, I have decided to get it with Protect so that I can give my Pelliper time to fight the Special Sweeps.
