Hello Rock types, Hello Steel types, Hello Ghost types...

3 normal moves on one poke isn't the best idea

I think the standard has HP Ground over one of the normal attacks (QA not included)

Another top-of-the-head idea.

Nature- Brave/Lonely/Adamant/Naughty

Aerial Ace
Facade
HP Ground
Toxic (Or anything you want)

Aerial Ace is the best move I could find for Swellow for STAB unfortunately :mad: but use that to get a clean cut off of the enemy ALL of the time. Facade is also there for STAB, but you get an extra bonus considering that it has Guts and Facade's power is boosted, along with Swellow's attack power.

HP Ground can serve a little bit as a defense against Electric, Rock, and Ice type Pokemon. And Toxic... Well I just put that in there.

You can be the first to experiment this if you want. It should turn out a little efficient.

That's just the standard with toxic over quick attack ._.

Quick attack would prolly be better due to reversalers and such.

lol, Toxic on Swellow. Oh yes, I remember that crazy nub on the Netbattle Forum who insisted Toxic was based off Special Attack XD And goodness, why would you give swellow toxic ._.

on emerlad, a good sweeper? okay, here's my try.

swellow@um...emerald, so...
aerial ace
facade
steel wing
substitute\double edge\any move you want

use substitute for more bulky pokemon, to survive longer, more sweeping chances :biggrin:

Here's a powerful swellow.
Only quick attack noobs teach swellow quick attack. It's power is only 40 noobs! :goofy:
Item: Sharp beak
Sky attack
Endeavor
Swords dance
Aerial ace (Even though the power is 60 it just never misses. Good for pokemon that use sand attack, minimize, double team and other accuracy lowering moves.)

i like mirror move but my swellows have always been too fast for it to be used right. so its borderline with me.
Sky Attack is also a Super good moved.
above all dont have your swellow learn Heat wave..:silenced:
