View Full Version : Help with Vespiqueen

06-03-2007, 01:11 AM
Hey, I just got a combee (female), and am wondering what nature and moveset is good?

How about:

Vespiqueen-Silver Powder
Defense Order (Boost already uber Def and Sp. Def)
Attack Order
Heal Order
Swagger (So what if their attack is boosted, I got great defense :rolleyes:)

I know... only one attack move :susp:... I need help... a lot

What do you think... about the Vespiqueen... not me needing help :ermm:

I find Vespiqueen a mediocre tank. It's Dual Type combo gives it quite a bit of weaknesses, but there is a small means of working around it...

-Defend Order
-Heal Order

To begini with, Vespi's base 40 Spd makes it excessively slow, but it's defenses cap out nicely at 333, so it's best to work with those. Along with an average HP over 300, pumping out Substitutes, Buffing both defenses, Sticking Toxics, and Healing behind your Substitutes makes Vespiqueen reasonble Tank, or a Toxic-layer at the very least.

I was thinking about using it not as a pure tank, but a bit of a Sp. Atk Sweeper... but I think it might be "mediocre" as that as well :ermm:

By the way, know where I can fight more Toxic TMs?

TM 06 (Toxic) can be purchased at the Battle Tower using Battle Points. You need 32 BP, so 35 Consecutive wins: (1-7 = 3BP, 8-14 = 3BP, 15-21 = 20BP, 22-28 = 4 BP, 29-35 = 5BP [35BP total])

it's Vespiquen, not Vespiqueen

I would try for maybe a bit of a Tank going kinda like...

Vespiquen@SilverPowder (Lowers enemies accuracy)
Nature@Modest (More SpDef less Atk)

Defend Order
Double Team
Heal Order

Use Toxic to poison them, then Defend order once or twice to get some defense, then you keep double teaming until its maxed out, then max out defense with Defend Order, and just use Heal Order when Needed.

Hope i could help.

I'd say:

- Attack Order
- Defend Order
- Heal Order
- Pursuit

EVs... Hmmm... 252 Atk, 252 Sp. Def? Cuz investing in Defence is a waste, since a Rock Slide or Stone Edge is 4x effective and will OHKO her.

If it's Mild, than why do you have attack order on it? It's a physical move and you'll need more special attack moves.
