    That's why you use a non-contact move on wild Stunfisk.

    Well, when you're EV training a Skarmory you transferred over that already knows Whirlwind, Brave Bird, Spikes, and Roost, your options are kinda limited. God, that was hell.

    Sets I think my new favorite ground type might like
    Derp/Troll - fisk
    Stunfisk @ Leftovers / Life Orb
    Sand Veil Ability
    Quiet Nature
    164 HP / 252 Sp.Atk / 92 Sp.Def
    - Scald / Muddy Water
    - Mud Slap/ Mud Bomb
    - Thunderbolt / Discharge
    - Pain Split

    ^ First of all ; completely take "Using Stunfisk in OU to be surprising" out of the picture. Ok, This is mainly an annoyer/troll for UU/NU Battling. Choose "Scald" if you would like to burn and lower attack [*Cough Toxiccroak and Ambipom Cough*] , Muddy Water can lower the opponents accuracy -sometimes. Mud Slap ALWAYS lowers accuracy each time it hits, power it up a little with life orb, Thunderbolt is a solid Stab move and Discharge is another Stab move but has a bigger chance of paralyzing but lower base power. You can you it in a sand storm team to increase evasion more.


    Spartafisk
    Stunfisk @ Leftovers / Life Orb
    Brave Nature
    Static Ability
    164 HP / 220 Atk / 84 Sp.Def / 40 Def
    - Curse
    - Earthquake
    - Payback / Bounce
    - Pain Split / Revenge


    ^ Same as the last first sentence but overall, Stunny can Curse him up to take some bulk, Earthquake for a decent STAB move. A Brave nature can raise his attack and lower speed = good for payback to work good. Bounce is just a filler gimmick to attack and give the opponent a chance of getting paralyzed. If you want SOME chance of healing go for pain split, if you want to try and endure attacks and hit back go with revenge.

    Just an aside, but Scald won't work on Toxicroak anyway since any Toxicroak worth their salt is running Dry Skin.

    Stunfisk
    @Leftovers
    Ability: Static
    Bold Nature
    252 HP /200 Def/58 Sp.Def

    Thunderbolt
    Pain split
    Yawn/ hp ice
    Boiling water

    I've used this set from the OP on PO for a while and it's done alright. It takes hits fairly well, I mean, a V-Create from Victini only does around half and sometimes Static kicks in which is hilarious. And it lives a lot of super effective special moves, usually from defensive mons though. Pain Split hasn't really been all that great but with Yawn forcing switches pretty much every damn time I use it, it has a lot of chances to get it off at least. This is definitely the moveset I wanna run on this guy for now but I've had a really tough time deciding whether to use a physically or specially defensive spread. So far, this one is fine.

    I have used the above set and it is no joke (at least performance wise JUST LOOK AT IT!). It is a great phazer/statuser and it can take hits very well. I'd say keep it the way it is.

    This thing could be a great wall, if not for having 4 weaknesses, 3 of which are common (Ground, Water, and Ice).

    Why not go a simple route and remove the common weaknesses?

    Stunfisk @ Leftovers
    Ability: Static
    Nature: Bold
    EVs: 188 HP/252 Def/68 SpDef
    Moveset:
    -Camouflage
    -Discharge/Mud Slap
    -Yawn/Scald/Toxic
    -Pain Split

    Camouflage on the opponents switch to reduce weaknesses to only Fighting. STAB won't matter, but Discharge is there anyways for 30% chance of paralyses. Mud Slap could also be used if you want to chance accuracy drops and run an annoyer set with Toxic or Scald.

    Scald, Toxic or Yawn to spread more status problems.

    Pain Split to attempt to recover lost HP.

    This would be potentially a good idea, but unfortunately...

    Just curious about the EV spread, why 188 HP? Is it a Lefties number or something?

    When I typed that, Camouflage seemed like a good Ideal, and I thought it would have been weak only to fighting types. Most fighting type movies are physical, so i wanted more Def bulk than SpDef bulk.

    That, and I borrowed one of the spreads in the OP.

    If you wanted more Def bulk why move EV's from HP to Sp.D..But ok, since you borrowed it, only the spread maker can tell.

    Stunfisk Sweep

    After completely wrecking a Sandstorm team using NOTHING but Stunfisk (My opponent quit after I took out Tyranitar, Rotom-W, and Scizor) I am convinced that the following set has a decent amount of competitive potential:

    Stunfisk (M) @ Leftovers
    Trait: Static
    EVs: 252 HP / 4 SAtk / 252 SDef
    Calm Nature (+SDef, -Atk)
    - Scald
    - Protect
    - Substitute
    - Toxic

    This set is never 4hkO'd by CB Scizor's Bullet Punch (21-22%), which means that it goes well with anything that cannot take a hit from it. It can defeat most Tyranitar and Ninetales and can PPstall out Scarfed Rotom-W's Hydro Pump. Static paralyzes physical attackers, Toxic is for residual damage, and Scald can burn for triple status infliction.

    EV Spread Explanation:
    252 HP and SDef for special bulk, then 4 in SAtk because I like that extra offensive power.

    Moveset Explanation:
    Scald to burn and do a bit of damage to anything that already carries a status.
    Toxic to hit those who either cannot be burned or need to be killed faster.
    Substitute to aid PP stall.
    Protect to aid PP stall.

    Usage Explanation:

    Send it in on pokemon such as Scizor or T-tar, or even Ninetales, and either substitute or hit it with toxic/scald. If the opponent switches while a substitute is up, hit it with status again.

    Hell, if it can sweep a Sandstorm team right off the bat, it deserves some recognition.

    as the writer of the in progress stunfisk analysis i will just say that this has literally nothing over a restalk set. restalk or specs are the best ways to go with stunfisk (maybe curse) you are walled by pokemon with water absorb and waters in general.

    I think that's probably one of the better things Stunfisk can do, but I doubt it could beat Scizor regularly. Wouldn't most of them simply Bug Bite or U-Turn instead of Bullet Punch, and with no Defense investment that's going to hurt. Also, Ninetales may decide to Will o' Wisp, which would kill your staying power.

    That battle sounds fairly hilarious though and would be impressive if the opponent was playing well too.

    this is what i mean, stunfisk is better off pulling off a defensive restalk set, which removes damage and status.
