    Like the "Best Physical Sweeper" thread I made.

    This is a lot tougher than the physical sweeper question. Personally, I don't think there is a single best one.

    Starmie has always worked very well for me, though I have not used the others that much.
    We both break free if we make it on top
    If one should fall we both will drop

    We move together from here on out
    What you need is what I'm about

    I personally like Alakazam; it has awesome Speed and Special Attack, and although it doesn't have strong boosting moves, it has Psychic and Focus Blast (and now Psyshock).

    Chandelure. It obliterates anything with Shadow Tag and Choice Scarf, like Datte said. It has insane Sp Atk, great moves, and decent defenses.

    I chose Volcarona due to my preference, but as a sweeper I think Chandelure and Volcarona are equal.

    The only thing it lacks for type coverage is Focus Blast; by then, it'll be almost unbeatable.

    I alos chose Chandelure due to its beastly Special Attack, awesome moveset and just a really cool design
    70% of the Serebii population uses ultra powerful legendaries (also known as ubers) in their teams.
    If you are one of the 30% that thinks outside the box and doesn't use ubers, copy and paste

    Zam has decent type coverage, and with a Timid nature it can outspeed anything useful (aside from Jolteon). Chandelure just has too much investment in Special Attack, with not enough Speed or bulk to do much.

    Starmie. The first and ONLY special attack sweeper.

    Gengar. I gave mine a sash, and it has great coverage in 2 attacks, so it can pull to offensive and the other two whatever it wants. I gave it destiny bond to work with the sash. It's poison typing makes it immune to toxic, and with an immunity to seismic toss, it's hard to stall out of health.

    Unlike it's remake, it can live without a scarf, with no weakness to SR.

    Zam can outspeed Gengar easily, along with pretty much all the other sweepers, and, because of Magic Guard, it can't be harmed by stuff like weather, spikes, or Life Orb.

    1) Chandelue isn't a sweeper.
    2) Alakazam sucks.
    3) Gengar is pretty good.
    4) Porygon Z is decent, but still pretty bad.
    5) Jolteon blows.
    6) Hydreigon isn't really a sweeper and its not going to get around many of the faster Pokemon or Mach Punches.
    7) Starmie has been able to run pretty much the same set since R/B and crush teams with it.
    8) Zoroark is so frail its laughable.
    9) Volcarona is terrifying if it sets up, but Stealth Rock cripples it.

    Starmie can flatten teams with zero setup, no prediction or any real thought. It is the "perfect" special sweeper. Others require turns to set up, have flawed coverage (Focus Blast is a bad move), are frail, have bad typing or so on. But Starmie.. Starmie is a monster.

    Starmie, move pool too strong its too naturally fast as well.

    Chandelure plz that thing can't plant its feet once and just kill everything its way to slow for that. Its a revenge killer not a sweeper.

    There is no best special sweeper, but Volcarona is a mighty good one.
