okay.. heres what i had in mind for my crawdawnt:::

Crawdawnt (F) @???? ** Ursula
Trait: shell armor (prevents critical hits)
EVs: i have no clue yet.. defnetly attack
Quiet Nature (+S.Atk, -Spd.)

(the only thing is I definetly wanna keep Dig) so any suggestions would be appreciated, thank ya :biggrin:

Well actually having +SpA is kinda pointless, I always thought Crawdaunt was a physical sweeper. I could be wrong though, or there could be variations =P

Anyways, this is what I would suggest

Crawdaunt@Shell Bell? Lefties? I don't really know
Adamant (+Atk, -SpA) or Careful (+SpD, -SpA)
-Swords Dance
-Brick Break
-Aerial Ace
-Dig (Since you wanted to keep it)

EV's should go towards SpD (I find my Crawdaunt has trouble against thunderbolts), and something else (not SpA though)

I really dunno how to make Crawdaunt a special sweeper, so sorry if this doesn't help =/

Crawdaunt (F) @ Shell Bell/Leftovers
EVs: Max Attack, Max HP
Trait: Shell Armor
Nature: Adamant (+Atk, -SAtk)
-Swords Dance
-Sludge Bomb
-Brick Break
-Ancient Power/Dig

DITCH DIG. Unless you're really crazy about Dig, take APower.

doesn't Crawdaunt learn Knock off? That'd be a mighty useful attack. Forcing the opponent to play without items gives them a handicap.

Crwdaunt has very good physical power. I would give it surf only for water and the rest should be physhical. Dig is pretty good. Swords dance can enhance dig or maybe a hyper beam if he can learn it. I would make his personality plus attack minus speed if I were you too. Also I think sludge bomb is effective as mentioned above. Dig isn't the best move for him but If you have a strategy with it more pwer to you hope this helps!!

Also try protect maybe it just depends on rest of team

but the problem with dig is when ur poke is underground the opponent could just switch out a flying poke
