Can anyone suggest a moveset for a Phsycial Sweeping Absol? Its swarming todays so hopefully I'll get one with a decent nature of even a shiny. :happy:

Here's what I was thinking:

Absol @ Razor Claw
Adamant Nature
Trait: Super Luck
- Night Slash
- Swords Dance
- ???
- ???

With a hightened critical hit ratio along with Swords Dance it could do some leet damage... but I dunno what to put in for the other 2 moves.

I was thinking Perish Song but are OHKO moves considered illegal?

Thought so, although I disagree with Perish Song being considered illegal. You have to wait 3 turns and your pokemon dies also. Not to mention you can switch out as long as your not down to your last pokemon.

In any case I won't use it then, so can anyone suggest which moves I could fill the last 2 slots with?

Aerial Ace and Stealth Rock, I would reccommend, though I don't think Absol could survive the chance to even USE Swords Dance.

Since Absol isn't the speediest Pokemon and has more than enough ATK, go with a Jolly Natured one (+SPD -SpATK) and get a Baton Passer for your team.

Swords Dance and Critical Hits? Always a mistake... Critical hits don't use your Swords Dance boost, so if you use 2 Swords Dances, then you'll have like a 90% chance of it being a Critical Hit, making it weaker LOL. Here are 2 movesets:

Absol@Razor Claw (Super Luck)
Jolly (252 Atk, 252 Spd, 4 HP)
Night Slash
Psycho Cut
Stone Edge
Slash (Filler)

Absol@Focus Sash? (Pressure)
Jolly (252 Atk, 252 Spd, 4 HP)
Swords Dance
Night Slash
X-Scissor
Aerial Ace/Psycho Cut/Sucker Punch (Filler)

Absol doesn't have too wide of a movepool, so it has a few fillers.

Maybe Absol could use a partner... maybe a Ninjask BPer

Ninjask @ ???
??? Nature
Trait: Speed Boost
- Swords Dance
- Baton Pass
- ???
- ???

Not sure if this would work. Send out Ninjask to use Swords Dance a couple of times, then BP to Absol who also gets a Speed Boost.

Back to Absol though, does this look alright now?:

Absol @ Razor Claw
Jolly Nature
Trait: Super Luck
EVs: 252 Attk, 252 Spd, 6 HP
- Night Slash
- Aerial Ace
- Stealth Rock
- Swords Dance

Another idea I just had, if Absol had Taunt he could use it then next turn use Swords Dance. It would allow him to boost his attack while not risking getting hit.

Oops didn't see this post before I made the above one. I see your point about Swords Dance and Criticals Hits, I should pick one or the other.

Ninjask@Focus Sash (Speed Boost)
Adamant (252 Atk, 252 Spd, 4 HP)
Protect
Swords Dance
Baton Pass
X-Scissor

That's a Ninjask.

I told you, no Super Luck and SD. Taunt makes the opponent HAVE to use a damage move... -_-

Edit: Yeah.

So which moveset are you using? Criticsol or the Sweeper Absol?

Pressure for Sweeper, and Super Luck for Crit.

Pressure for Sweeper, and Super Luck for Crit.

Go with Super Luck/Critical Hits; Pressure is only good with Pokemon that can take hits. With Absol's unimpressive defensive stats, that'd be a problem.

If you use Swords Dance, it won't be any diffrent. Use this:

Absol@Razor Claw (Super Luck)
Jolly - 252 Attack, 252 Speed, 6 HP
Night Slash
Psycho Cut
Shadow Claw
Slash?

I said that.

Go with Super Luck/Critical Hits; Pressure is only good with Pokemon that can take hits. With Absol's unimpressive defensive stats, that'd be a problem.

That's why it's holding Focus Sash. But Criticsol is slightly better since it can beat tanks that use Def raising moves.

If you use Swords Dance, it won't be any diffrent. Use this:

Absol@Razor Claw (Super Luck)
Jolly - 252 Attack, 252 Speed, 6 HP
Night Slash
Psycho Cut
Shadow Claw
Slash?

I said most of that. NO SHADOW CLAW!!! IT'S THE SAME AS NIGHT SLASH, only it doesn't affect normal, and does OK on Fighting. Use Stone Edge...

Think I'm gonna use Criticsol with this setup:

Absol @ Razor Claw
Jolly Nature
Trait: Super Luck
EVs: 252 Attk, 252 Spd, 6 HP
- Night Slash
- Psycho Cut
- Aerial Ace
- X-Scissor

Didn't want to use Stone Edge since I prefer the reliability of 100% Acc moves. Guess I'll have to go catch a pack of Absol and pick the best one then. :smile:

How is Perish Song illegal? I guess you guys just have different rules here.
