No, Defense-only boosts are pretty lame since all it takes is one Critical Hit to ruin you. Curse is better since it boosts Attack as well as Defense.

Torkoal @Leftovers
Impish Nature
-Curse
-Rock Slide
-Overheat
-Rest/Body Slam/Explosion

I would go with rest because 1 return is only good if your pokemon like you alot and aragornbird gives good movesets and he suggested rest.

If it is an Impish nature, then I wouldn't use Flamethrower, use Rest instead. For a surprise or something, you could chuck in Sludge Bomb o.O
Go with Aragornbird's sets please.

Also green dragonate, use capitals when you are writing the bit because it doesn't seem to work without caps on.

iron defense is no good....especially since torkaol has access to curse which is wonderful due to his already terrible speed, so it doesnt really matter. Go with bodly slam if you want a chance of paralysis and a normal move with a boost from curse, or Explosion in replacement of Body Slam, for when your HP gets low.rock slide for another powerful attack with curse and overheat for steel types etc. that you need to get rid of

You could try a defensive/tankish Torkoal o.o

- Rest
- Amnesia
- Return/Body Slam

Or something.

Like he said The Mighty Wurmple they do suck.

Is the defensive set I gave any good?

edit:I had Curse though, and I wasn't using Iron Defense, so it doesn't really suck. Mine was only a fun sort of set, not a serious set.

You could stall away, but you can't really do much in return. For example, ghosts and steels wall you easily. If you had a fire move, things that have Flash Fire can easily take it on.

Oh. Didn't see the fun part.

that wasnt copy and pasted, its just the only moveset that really makes any sense to use with torkoal.
