Overview

Pelipper is generally outclassed by other Pokemon, but it's a decent wall in NU. The weakness to Rock really brings it down though.

Name Item Nature

Special Attacker

Leftovers Bold
Moveset EVs
~ Surf
~ Ice Beam
~ Toxic
~ Hidden Power Electric / Protect
252 HP / 144 Def / 114 SpA

Pelipper has a very good Defense stat, allowing it to wall Pokemon like Kingler. Hidden Power Electric can be used to hit them hard, or you can Substitute for Toxic stalling.

Name Item Nature

RestTalk

Leftovers Bold
Moveset EVs
~ Surf
~ Ice Beam
~ Rest
~ Sleep Talk
252 HP / 144 Def / 114 SpA

Pelipper has decent defenses for an NU Pokemon and can wall some non-Rock, non-Choice Band Normal Pokemon there. RestTalk helps keep it alive.

Other Options

Pelipper is one of those Pokemon that lack a good movepool. You can steal items with Thief right when Pelipper might be KOed next turn.

EVs

Well, maxing out Special Attack could help a lot. Pelipper does have base 100 Defense, so choosing to give it some Defense EVs doesn't hurt at all. Still, you'll have to give some HP EVs in order to make it a defensive tank.

Checks and Counters

Anything faster than Pelipper is one way to take it down. The other way is anything else; it's just not a Gyarados / Mantine.
