    ^ I would go Dragon Dance to boost both stats you're focusing on.

    Pokémon Conkeldurr @ Flame Orb
    Guts
    Adamant
    252 HP/ 252 Atk/ 4 Def
    - Substitute
    - Payback
    - Hammer Arm
    - Bulk Up

    I Figured this conkeldurr will probably be slow since I've put all the IVs in HP and Atk and Def, so I went with Payback to get 100att. Substitute allows me to set up my bulk up which after the subsitute fades I will be able to deal much more damage. Since my speed is already at its low point, I don't think reducing my speed due to hammer arm will make much of a difference so i used this move, plus it has 100 att. Plus flame orb and guts ability it gets 1.5x boost in atk which makes it 150 att, the same goes for payback.

    ^ Drain Punch you will find more useful for healing in between Sub's and Flame Orb damage , so use it instead of Hammer Arm. All else that I can say is to consider Mach Punch > Substitute for the useful Priority.

    stealth rock
    toxic
    stone edge
    yeah she doesnt exactly have a good selection of attacks as as for her nature it wasnt a voluntary choice of mine since i caught her in the challenger's cave as a boldore im thinking about replacing toxic with attract since it seems a lot of the pokemon in the wifi battle world are male(go ahead and correct me if im wrong) so how would you go on about improving her?

    Aqua Tail or Fire Punch. Depending on whether you hate Ground/Rock types or Steel types more.

    - Payback/stone edge
    - mach punch
    - Bulk Up
    made changes in bold and extra options in bold and underlined. drainpunch for recovery, mach punch for revenge killing. payback or stone edge is best, payback for ghosts, stone edge for flying types. either is powerful though. just hope that there isnt a ghost thats slower than conkel, or else payback would be 50 base. its basicly what arua said... alrdy typed it, then i looked up... i got to stop doing that.

    Mawile @ Leftovers
    Intimidate
    Adamant
    252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 Spe
    - Swords Dance
    - Sucker Punch
    - Brick Break
    - Iron Head

    This is the standard Mawile set I think, even though Mawile isn't commonly used, like ever. Is this outdated? Does it need updating? I was wondering if Intimidate should be replaced with Sheer Force (DW). Are leftovers necessary? I plan on breeding a Mawile because its one of my favorites. I'll probably use it both ingame and it will be thrown into my box of competitive pokemon, that I use when I throw teams together. But it will see the light of day in the competitive pokemon world. Is this set good, or should I change it up a bit?

    I really like Sucker Punch here because Mawile is so slow, and that could help out in a pinch.

    i wouldn't change it. This set is one of the fews she can run. Actually, this is the best set for her.
    Sure, some people would change Lefties to Life Orb...i would do that, but it might be stupid, if you ask me. Just because she already holds kinda a power, and since she's using SD Set, LO is...useless, a big loss of time (item!) other things.

    Again, this is the best set for her, IMO.

    I agree, zhanton should put Mawile's set up with Sheer Force, it's a better alternative imo.

    Lum Berry is the only Item I see that could be used, because if Mawile is burned in Competitive, it loses any chance of even sweeping.

    Changes in Bold. Note that Skill Link is far better, as otherwise Bullet Seed and Rock Blast suck.

    Swanna
    Item Focus Sash
    Nature Timid
    Ability Big Peck
    EVs 252 Special Attack/ 252 Speed/ 4 HP
    Move Set
    Scald
    Air Slash
    Ice Beam/ Hidden Power Fire?
    Tailwind

    Scald and Air Slash for a good STAB move
    Ice Beam or Hidden Power for coverages (I'm still not really sure about Hidden Power)
    Tailwind to gain speed to Swanna or other Pokemon in my team
    Focus Sash gives Swanna a lot of chance to use Tailwind

    So I sort of neglected this thread for a few months but I'm happy to say that the Moveset Index is now fully updated with all the sets posted in this thread (as long as they used the correct format or something close to it), as well as a few more I added in myself. chap196 has also been added as a contributor to the Singles Rate Thread.

    I've also updated the OP with a new guideline regarding EVs:

    Regarding EVs - For the sake of consistency, please use the following abbreviations for stats when listing EVs: Atk (Attack), Def (Defence), SpA (Special Attack), SpD (Special Defence), Spe (Speed) and HP.
    To illustrate this, I've included a sample set in the OP. Thanks to Tsumiki for coming up with the idea to include a sample set.

    If I've made any mistakes with sets or you notice something's wrong, please let me know.

    Incoming sets:

    Weezing @ Leftovers / Wise Glasses
    Levitate
    Modest
    252 HP / 252 SpA / 4 Spe
    - Sludge Bomb
    - Flamethrower
    - Thunderbolt / Pain Split
    - Will-o-Wisp

    This makes the most of Weezing's great Defence and nice typing. After Will-o-Wisp you'll be near invincible. Sludge Bomb for STAB, Flamethrower for Steels and T-bolt or Pain Split for coverage and recovery respectively.

    Magnezone @ Wise Glasses
    Sturdy
    Modest
    252 HP / 252 SpA / 4 SpD
    - Thunderbolt
    - Flash Cannon
    - Signal Beam / Hidden Power [Ice]
    - Thunder Wave

    Signal Beam helps against Grass types that wall you and is actually quite useful in the Elite 4. HP [Ice] for boltbeam and the other moves should be obvious really.
    A dual screen set is also viable.

    Magmortar @ Item (If applicable)
    Flame Body
    Timid
    252 SpA / 252 Spe / 4 HP
    - Flamethrower
    - Thunderbolt
    - Focus Blast
    - Earthquake

    Magmortar has got a surpirsingly decent attack of 95, so Earthquake is helpful for Rock types. I'm debating whether I should list a Sunny Day set as well...

    Surprised we don't have a Magnezone set especially considering half the world used one in BW2, but you have a few options.

    Magnezone @ Leftovers / Life Orb
    Sturdy
    Modest
    252 SpA / 252 HP / 4 Spe
    - Thunderbolt
    - Flash Cannon
    - Signal Beam / Hidden Power [Ice] / Hidden Power [Fire]
    - Thunderwave

    An all-out attacking Magnezone set. Modest as your nature since Magnezone doesn't need his Attack stat anyway, but if you really can't be bothered trying more to get a Modest one, Mild is alright. Thunderbolt as your STAB as it's more reliable than Thunder. Thunderwave for team support, Flash Cannon for secondary STAB and Signal Beam or Hidden Power [Ice]/[Fire] for further coverage, all three moves hitting Grass-types hard, who resist Thunderbolt. Either Leftovers or Life Orb as your item, depending on whether you want Magnezone to last longer or hit harder.

    Magnezone @ Leftovers
    Sturdy
    Modest
    252 SpA / 252 HP / 4 Spe
    - Thunderbolt
    - Substitute
    - Charge Beam
    - Signal Beam / Hidden Power [Ice] / Hidden Power [Fire]

    This Magnezone is a set-up Magnezone. The set is built around the Substitute + Charge Beam combination; you use Substitute and then spam Charge Beam, hopefully racking up some SpA boosts, after which you can sweep with Thunderbolt and either Signal Beam, Hidden Power [Ice] or Hidden Power [Fire]. Leftovers as your item so you can heal the Substitute damage.

    Hope this helps!

    Kingdra @ Life Orb
    Swift Swim
    Timid
    252 SpAtk / 252 Speed / 4 HP
    - Hydro Pump
    - Dragon Pulse / Surf / Ice Beam / Hidden Power Grass or Electric
    - Draco Meteor
    - Dragon Pulse / Surf / Ice Beam / Hidden Power Grass or Electric

    I'm gonna use him on my Drizzle team in my sig, was planning or RNGing him like right now but realized I wasn't sure if I wanted a Hidden Power or not, Water and Dragon is pretty good already and just in Politoed has the option of going HP grass (it has the right IVs) and Latios has Thunder already...

    Its a prize in the Battle Subway, you can get it in the Dreamworld, you could trade with someone who has an extra or you could just download a Pokemon off Pokecheck that's holding one.
