Movez:
Slash
Sword Dance(Tutor)

Kabutops can also Endure+Flail, which is a viable option only if you have a Salac Berry.

Fun option would be Metal Sound/Surf/Giga Drain/Substitute.

Kabutops is not a Sp.Attack user, it got low Sp.Attack, so there's no use of Kabutops use Spcial attacks.

Please, do note that I mentioned the word fun in front of the moveset. It's a novelty moveset that should not be used in serious play, thus, it is a fun option.

Do not post in the moveset board unless you know what you are talking about, please.

Also, it should be noted that Kabutops does not learn Earthquake.

And @ Echo:

Yes, Kabutops can flail but I am a firm believer in that the flail route sucks simply because Normal and Rock get resisted together by many common type combos. For instance... Steel, Rock/Ground, etc.

So... in order to cover those, you either lose Swords Dance or your STAB move (Rock Slide). Not worth it, IMO, especially when there are already better Flailers out there who get STAB on it.

Just avoid him he even insulted me for nothing.

I think he should avoid me.:cool:

@ Dragon_Seeker

Well, Flail is still an option, maybe not as good though. I myself like to use Sub/Rock Slide/Swords Dance/Knock Off.

But well, I don't even remember there being a good UU STAB Flailer. Dodrio, Zangoose and friends are either OU or BL. Sure, there's always Linoone and Kingler. Though, Linoone has definately better things to do than Flail (BD + Extremespeed or CB) and Kingler is on the same line with Kabutops (no STAB, over 100 base Atk and 75/80 base Spd).

Regardless, I do agree with you that Kabutops does have better stuff to do than Flail around.

He is not an Sp. Attack user, use one or two more physical moves.

These 3 moveset I'll give you, I'll let you choose which one you use.

or

Slash
Sword Dance
Metal Sound
Surf / Giga Drain / Mega Drain

Metal Sound first, then Sword Dance, then, Slash attack, and keep that up till Kabutops' attack can't go any higher or Foe's defense can't go any lower, use Surf, Giga, or Mega against Foe that can do Super Effective hits on Kabutops.

@ Thunder Legend: Use my moveset or Echo's if you want a serious moveset, use the other suggestions if you want to have a "for fun" moveset. I can't make that much clearer.
