Approved by Arcticblast. What is a good creative moveset?: It fulfills a role that sets it apart from others It has had some success. Post replays or logs to strengthen your case. Remember the word "Creative".Multiple replays showcasing the sets effectiveness is suggested.Remember, this is a thread for both posting and reviewing.What are some things that constitute a bad gimmick? Movesets that are not practical or are extremely outclassed by another Pokemon. Movesets that have no consistency, e.g. Metronome based sets and most Assist based sets. No banned moves/abilities should be posted in a set. I'll start with a few of my own custom sets.Pokemon Name: RegigigasMove 1: FacadeMove 2: SporeMove 3: Dragon TailMove 4: Knock OffItem: Toxic OrbAbility: Poison HealNature: Jolly (+Spe -Spa)Poison Heal Regigigas has received a lot of popularity in the ladder, but most choose a terrible moveset. This Regigigas has the niche of blocking spores, sporing threats that lack an ability/move that can stop it, Facading, causing enormous damage and Knocking off Eviolites or other useful items from the foe. Dragon Tail allows you to not only do a little bit of damage to Giratina-O, it also allows you to abuse BW's new sleep mechanics by phazing foes that you put to sleep.It struggles against Magic Bounce Skarmory, Magic Bounce Dialga and Magic Bounce Escavalier (You can knock off their item at least) and also against opposing Poison Healers. Pokemon Name: Skarmory Move 1: Whirlwind Move 2: Aromatherapy/U-turn Move 3: Rapid Spin/U-turn Move 4: Roost/Heal Order Item: Rocky Helmet/Leftovers Ability: Magic Bounce Nature: Bold (+Def -Att) With powerful physical attackers such as Groudon, Rhydon, Kyurem-B, Regigigas, Slaking and Escavalier running everywhere, there is one bird that walls them, his name is Skarmory, Skarmory has the perfect typing and distribution to act as a fantastic supporter that should always be considered for a team slot. It struggles against powerful special attackers and physical attackers that have powerful super effective moves against it (E.g: Bolt Strike, V-create). It also has a difficult time against Mold Breaker stallers. Pokemon Name: Latios Move 1: Draco Meteor Move 2: Psystrike Move 3: Magma Storm/Searing Shot Move 4: Aura Sphere/Magic Coat Item: Soul Dew Ability: Regenerator Nature: Timid (+Spe - Att) Latios is a fantastic offensive pivot that has a hard time finding a good time to heal, and what better ability to give it than Regenerator? Psystrike hits Ho-Oh, Kyogre, and Chansey hard whereas Aura Sphere can hit Regigigas, Slaking, Dialga, and Arceus very hard. The choice between Searing Shot or Magma Storm is up to you, Magma Storm allows it to trap and kill many switch ins which includes Dialga, Palkia, Giratina, Most Arceus, and most unaware Chanseys, additionally, Magma Storm also lets you defeat Shedinja without a problem. Searing Shot has perfect accuracy a bit less power and a 30% burn chance. Draco Meteor is the move to use against Giratina and Palkia. 110 base speed allows it to outrun most mons, With Soul Dew, it' guaranteed to survive against Kyurem-W's Draco Meteor at full HP while OHKO'ing it with Draco Meteor. Magic Coat can be used instead of Aura Sphere but Aura Sphere grants fantastic coverage. Prankster Sporers such as Groudon can stop it, but it's often very predictable. Meanwhile, Lugia can tank all of Latios's hits. Pokemon Name: Virizion Move 1: Judgment Move 2: Leech Seed Move 3: Aromatherapy Move 4: Heal Order Item: Fist Plate Ability: Magic Bounce Nature: Timid (+Spe - Att) Virizion has the stats and typing it needs to be an amazing bouncer. With a resistance to Stealth Rock, and Earthquake, it counters Groudon and Rhydon splendidly since it takes minimal damage from their Earthquakes. STAB Super Effective Judgment is also very strong, Having a chance to 2HKO Normal Arceus, Dialga, Kyurem-W, Kyurem-B, and Rhydon. Its high special defense and speed helps a lot, acting as a fantastic pivot turning the tides of battle in a moments notice. Anything with a flying move or V-create can kill it.

Try to give good reason as to why your set has a niche over other sets.
