Special Sweeper? Mixed sweeper more like it with those moves.

- Flamethrower
- Crunch
- Will-O-Wisp
- Substitute/Something
With Petaya/Salac berry.

Well with a moveset like that, I think those stats aren't gonna go too well with it. Try breeding for a new one? lol

omg...i dont have either of those berries o.O"...and mighty wurmple...whats the difference between special sweeper and mixed sweeper? and if i switch iron tail with will-o-wisp(preferably another move since i dont wanna breed another one >.>)...the houndoom would be good to go in battle facilities right?

Toxic? Roar? No no no.

Go with TMW's set above, with Leftovers. Another set would be:

Houndoom @ Leftovers
- Sunny Day
- Flamethrower
- Solarbeam
- Crunch

A Special Sweeper is a Pokemon with all Special Moves. Not counting support/status moves.

A Mixed Sweeper, on the other hand, use both Physical and Special moves, like your Houndoom.
