    Default Cloyster, Milotic, or Carracosta

    Cloyster can use shell smash and icicle spear, Milotic is a great rest-talker, and Carracosta has a good ability, which do you think is best

    I see you are listing off competitive sets. One thing you should know is that sharing a type does not instantly make the two pokemon competitively comparable. Milotic is completely different then the shell smash sweepers.

    Carracosta and Cloyster are comparable though. Powerful offensive STAB and shell smash makes them both good rain team shell smasher, though skill link + icicle spear is usually so good and so powerful that Cloyster is generally better.

    Carracosta can arguably function better on a sandstorm, though, since it gets a special defense boost.

    ...Why are ResTalking in-game?

    Or Shell Smashing, for that matter.

    shell smashing not so much (more for the Driftveil tourney)
    rest-talking is in-game for long journeys+ gym leaders

    I like more Cloyster, but Milotic is stronger and have better moves, but is up to you.
