    Seismitoad is an underrated threat in NU, but he is pretty deadly with the right hands. His ability to beat the majority of stealth rock users is pretty notable, and his decent speed for using swift swim as well.

    The two commonly used Seismitoad sets are the Specially defensive toad, or the LO Rain dance sweeper.

    So what do you think about Seismitoad?

    Notable Moves:

    • Hydro Pump
      Earth Power
      Surf
      Scald
      Knock Off
      Stealth Rock
      Toxic
      Earthquake
      Rock Slide
      Drain Punch
      Endeavor
      Rain Dance
      Protect
      Sludge Bomb
      Sludge Wave

    There's already a thread about Seismitoad.

    A recent Seismitoad set has SR, Earthquake, Scald | Hydro Pump, Toxic | Knock Off with a Rash (not sure though) Nature. I think it's quite effective as it can still hit Jynx hard while taking weak-ish hits.

    I like this set actually:

    Seismitoad@ Life Orb
    Ability: Water Absorb
    EVs: 252 HP/252 SpA/4 Spd
    Modest Nature
    - Toxic
    - Surf
    - Venoshock
    - Earth Power
    This set can actually do a lot. Steel types are killed by Earth Power, while Surf is another good stab. After Toxic, Venoshock does staggering damage.

    why bother using venoshock when surf is stronger? even if the opposing pokemon is poisoned, surf is still stronger. the only merit it has is against grass types, of which seismitoad shouldn't risk staying in. it would be better of using a useful support move like Stealth Rock over venoshock

    Constantnipple, it might not be that viable, but it can somewhat work with toxic spikes support.

    For Grass types that is.

    EDIT: Sludge bomb and Sludge wave, Toad can learn them :o
