Standard Curselax. I sometimes think of using Fire Blast, but I'm not sure on what to replace it with.

After 2 or more Curses, it takes physical attacks like they're nothing.


The main weakness is that I don't have any proper phazers, so stat boosting is a problem. Actually, the only matches I ever lost while using this team were stat boosting/Baton passing matches

Cursepert of all things really fucks with you. Put haze on vaporeon, roar on moltres over fire spin, it doesn't matter but you need some way to counter stat uppers. When Regirock blows up on the bulky water that's shitting all over you, you inevitably die to anything with an attack stat.

Fire Spin is for trapping, but it isn't reliable offensively, so I'll just go ahead and replace it with Roar. Regirock is the main physical defense, but Vaporeon is bulky enough to withstand most physical attacks. I wouldn't have to worry about Vaporeon getting wiped out by a Swords Dancer if I had Haze.

Needs more Zephyr Fire and Semula and Water and Lackluster and I can see you and Nakmachine ya.
Did vapicuno give you this?

Anyway I really don't suggest leading with Moltres. Common leads such as Zapdos, Salamence, Tyranitar, etc, all screw Moltres up big time. Lead with CBMence imo.

I can't really see Fire Spin working without Toxic or Protect for Pressure abuse. Even then you'd probably still need higher speed for it to work the way you want it.
