The transition to Gen V, however, has brought several new toys for the giant, water cannon-sporting turtle to play with: Rain Dish: By far and away one of Blastoise's most useful tools is Rain Dish, its new ability. This means that, along with Leftovers recovery, the standard Blastoise will now survive longer, particularly since Politoed has recieved Drizzle with the arrival of Dream World. Boiling Water: Another useful move comes in the form of Boiling Water, which quite easily replaces Surf as its STAB move of choice. In addition to being a powerful Water-type attack, it also has a 30% chance of Burning the opponent, which helps Blastoise greatly in walling physical attackers. Moveset(s): Utilitoise: Blastoise @ Leftovers Bold (+Def, -Atk) Torrent/Rain Dish 252 HP, 252 Def, 4 SpAtk/SpDef Boiling Water Rapid Spin Toxic/Yawn Rest/Ice Beam/Protect Yes, the standard Utility set from Gen V makes a comeback, and it's better than ever! Boiling Water takes the place of Surf due to its Burnhax, Rapid Spin for getting rid of those annoying entry hazards, Toxic for stalling out opposing Bulky Waters or Yawn for Phazing support, and either Rest for keeping Blastoise healthy during his stay on the battlefield (helped along by Leftovers AND Rain Dish recovery); Ice Beam to his Grass-types who will try to force you out, or Protect to buy an extra turn of Poison/Burn damage. Rain dish is the preferred ability on this defensive set, but Torrent will also work if you don't have a reliable way of getting Rain up (Politoed shares Blastoise's weaknesses, after all). Stall Whore(suggested by Blatreutka): Blastoise @ Leftovers Bold (+Def, -Atk) Rain Dish 252 HP, 252 Def, 4 SpDef -Substitute -Boiling Water/Surf -Aqua Ring/ Yawn/ Protect -Toxic This set loses Spin support in order to stall out the opponent. Switch in on a Poke Blast can scare away, set up Sub on the switch, use Aqua Ring to restore even more HP, and Toxic to slowly destroy anything that stands in your way. Yawn or Protect can also be used in the third slot, with Yawn phazing away potential sweepers (though it conflicts with Toxic, so make sure you decide which status move you want to use) and Protect buying an extra turn of Toxic damage. Boiling Water can also be used to stop physical sweepers, but because the burn chance conflicts with Toxic (you don't want something like Lanturn switching into Boiling Water and miss your chance to Poison it), Surf is also a viable attack. And, so, that's Blastoise in a nut--er, turtle shell. Feel free to post your own sets (or variations of this on)!
