I should probably be shot for even asking, but is this a conceivable moveset in competetive play?

Giratina @Choice Band
Adamant
EVs: 6 Def / 252 ATK / 252 SDef
- Earthquake
- Stone-Edge
- Dragon Claw
- Shadow Claw

Or does this moveset totally phail? :oops:

In ubers, Groudon will hit harder with all of those moves.

It's better to make Giratina more defensive, with an attack thrown in to come off his respectable attack while he walls his opponent.

This set might be better, I'm going to use it myself:

Giratina@Leftovers
Impish
252 HP/252 SDef/6 Def
Protect
Toxic/Will-o-wisp
Dragon Claw
Earthquake

I would go with my number 2 and shove in the unbeleiveably annoying blissey for a sp.wall or something.

Giratina@leftovers
Impish(252hp,252sp.def,6def)
WoW
Rest
Dragon Claw
Sleep talk

or the smogon's great wall:

Giratina@lefties
Impish(252hp,244def,12sp.def)
WoW
Dragon Claw
Rest
Sleep talk

these have the same moves and nature but completely different EV's, the first being a mixed wall and the second being a physical wall.

I'd run this:

Giratina@Leftovers
Trait: Pressure
EVs: 244 HP/ 88 Def/ 176 SDef
Careful Nature (+SDef, -Atk)
- Will-o-Wisp
- Shadow Claw
- Thunder Wave
- Dragon Claw/Heal Block/Rest

I find thunder Wave extremely crippling. :D

This set looks a whole lot better than mine. The SDef can be maxed when running Impish, right?

However, I'm not much of a fan of double status movesets.

I think WoW and 88 Def EVs is all the Def you'll need.
