  • Thanks to Skill Link, Cloyster has what is essentially a base 125 power Ice STAB that will never miss. That alone is amazing, but couple that with Icicle Spear's ability to break substitutes, Sturdy, Focus Sash, and not take repeated contact damage from Rocky Helmet, Icicle Spear is an extremely versatile tool.


  • Shell Smash is the most important move on this set, as it boosts Cloyster's otherwise alright and below average Attack and Speed stats to very threatening levels.

  • Liquidation is Cloyster's strongest physical Water STAB that's used to hit Fire and Steel types that resist Icicle Spear.
  • Rock Blast is a great coverage move Cloyster can take advantage of due to Skill Link, which allows it to hit Water and Ice resistant pokemon like Milotic, Mantine, Thick Fat Snorlax, Mega Abomasnow, and Araquanid.
  • Shell Smash is the most important move on this set, as it boosts Cloyster's otherwise alright and below average Attack and Speed stats to very threatening levels.

Hello!

Before you write all of this I'd like to jump in and let you know what the QC team is going to have the set be - full Shell Smash is painfully outclassed by Barbaracle except for how Icicle Spear is better for rising defensive Pokemon like Tangela, so Shell Smash will be in the Other Options section along with a Choice Scarf set. Anyway, here's the main set:

Cloyster @ Focus Sash
Ability: Skill Link
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Shell Smash
- Icicle Spear
- Spikes
- Explosion / Rapid Spin

If you have any questions feel free to PM me on Discord roman#4216, thanks!
