Default is this a good weezing?

Weezing @levitate - leftovers
252 att,252 def, 252 hp
toxic
assurance
sludge bomb
gyro ball

toxic because its a great move, and because assuarance's power will be doubled, right?
sludge bomb because... well because whats a weezing without sludge bomb? :P
gyro ball because weezing isnt very fast, and it should have some power

i chose weezing because i wanted to build a pokemon around assurance, because i saw it could be a 100 power move that could be used every turn with 10 pp, if the target was poisoned, burned, there was hail, sandstorm, etc..
suggestions?

It is impossible to get a weezing with 252 EV's in ATK, DEF and HP. Only in 2 stats.

If you you are going for assurance, I suggest you combine something with sandstream (eg tyrannitar, Hippowdon), or perhaps something something that would be good with sandstorms (like a Gliscor with sandveil), with a Rampardos. Rampardos has one of the highest ATK stats of all pokemon, and can learn assurance. When you combine these factors, it is a heavy hitting combo. Add to this the speed increasing factor to Rampardos with sandstorm, and you have something incredibly powerful (if you wanna go with toxic, Rampardos can learn that to but I wouldn't recommend it).

Absol can also learn assurance, and it gets a STAB bonus from the move, so you could go with that instead.


I hope this has been informative for you.

Weezing is an interesting poke, you rarely see him now-a-days, in competitive battling.

Weezing has better tools to work with than assurance and defenses that still allow him to wall lots of things cold.

This is a set I like for your offensive minded weezing,

Weezing (bold)
leftovers
evs: 252 HP, 176 Def, 80 SpAtt
thunderbolt
flamethrower/fire blast
will-o-wisp
pain split/explosion

Cripple strong physical attackers and come in on physical resistances for an elimination blow. Is a Gyara threatening? Send in weezing for a thunderbolt. Is Salamence around? Is T-tar making trouble? will-o-wisp and cut their attack in half. Lucario being, well, Lucario? Throw on some fire.

Weezing can wall attackers and take them out of the game, either by hitting them with a super effective attack, taking away their attacking power, or if it comes to it, blowing them up.

Weezing is a powerful, damage absorbing tool at your disposal. Use him where his strong point are, and he'll be steady for you.

Flamethrower is always better than fire blast unless you have a booster using some accuracy boosting strategies. but unless lucario had psychic or was the last pokemon, then I can't imagine why someone would try to hit weezing with one. Thunderbolt seems to work well, but with no Sp. def capabilities, and almost all it's weaknesses being Sp. based (mostly psychic moves) then either it needs a bit of adjusting or some support. Maybe dark pulse could help that out?

Fire blast gives Weezing the extra umph to beat steels. His special attack isn't high enough and he doesn't get stab on flamethrower, so you get an accuracy drop, but weezing has the bulk get the job done and the extra power is helpful. Flamethrower is still a viable option, as it will do large amounts of damage to the same steel types.

Thunderbolt seems to work well, but with no Sp. def capabilities, and almost all it's weaknesses being Sp. based (mostly psychic moves) then either it needs a bit of adjusting or some support. Maybe dark pulse could help that out?

T-bolt is for gyara. Weezing can wall and take him out. No one wants a Gyara DDing on them.

Weezing isn't going to be coming on psychic types, so that's irrevent imo, unless your facing a Jirachi in a competitive battle, then we need to evaluate.

If you want sludge bomb, that's fine, but I go with either fire blast, or t-bolt as the other attack./QUOTE]

It may not go up against psychic types, nut you never know what might have an unusual move up it's sleeve, like absol with zen headbutt. I'm not saying thunderbolt seems like a bad idea, but if your opponent manages to surprise you with an unexpected psychic attack than this weezing is in trouble.

Considering that Absol actually resists dark attacks, I don't see how dark pulse helps any more than the other attacks I've suggested...It makes more sense to switch weezing out of a psycho cut rather than take one, which he will have to, given his lower speed stat.

I don't know how common Absol is in UU (let alone one that runs psycho cut), but assuming for a second that he is common, I'd rather just see a dark type poke in your squad, or something else that can come in on all Absol's attacks and then work to predict superpower.

It makes more sense to go about it that way imo, rather than giving a solid poke an atypical move because it "might" see a very very specific threat, that can easily be dealt with by some other component.

i like the set he put together here, will o wisp would just make him even better at walling pokemon. Pain split and explosion really come down to you. I like explosion but pain split does keep weezing around longer
