Zeraora Moveset - Pokemon USUM

I can't wait to use this guy, and I'm sure you can't either. So fantasize using him with one of these two movesets, both bringing out his different strengths.

Utility. The word sounds boring, but trust me, this guy will be more than worth it. His versatility and ability to disrupt the opponent is going to be amazing. I'm honestly stunned that Zeraora's able to learn all these great moves. Free chip damage, item removal, pivoting out, and nullifying Normal and Electric moves are likely going to make him an Uber.


Hasty/252 Spd/252 Atk @Flexible(Life Orb, Muscle Band, Focus Sash)

-Fake Out

-Knock Off

-Plasma Fists

-Volt Switch

But for some, a setup strategy might be more entertaining. Thanks to Bulk Up, Zeraora has some optio..

Poipole Moveset - Pokemon USUM

If you want to use Eviolite with the only UB capable of doing so, have at it! Only one recommended set due to Poipole's lack of a movepool :(

This is actually a rather annoying set and convenient thanks to the nature being dependent on the user's choice of physical or special defense. Poison is probably the most optimal type for a Pokemon like Poipole as it allows him to get Toxic off guaranteed.


Any +Def,SpDef, -Atk,Spd nature/252 HP/128 Def/128 SpDef @Eviolite


-Sleep Talk


-Venoshock/Venom Drench

Enjoy your little monster and please check out some other movesets of mine!

Unlock Shiny Charm

The Shiny Charm is an item that increases your chances of finding Shiny Pokemon. To get it you must complete your Alola PokeDex, return to the Game Freak HQ in Heahea City and talk to the director who will then reward you with a Shiny Charm.

Ultra Warp Ride control scheme

If you find the Ultra Warp Ride's motion controls to be a hassle, go to the GAME FREAK office in Akala Island's Heahea City. In the lower left corner of the office, you'll find an NPC in an Aether lab coat who'll offer to change the control scheme on the Ultra Warp Ride minigame, allowing you to control it with your circle pad.

Why Zeroara is the Perfect Addition To Pokemon

Upon first seeing this Pokemon, my original thought was: another OP Lightning type? Really? But then I dug around a bit and, in delight, figured out why this Pokemon was made.

This is the Lightning-type of Lightning-types. Coming with Volt Absorb, Zeroara withstands the pure power of Tapu Koko and Xurkitree, two major contenders in the current meta, and also can outspeed both of them, including Timid Scarf Xurkitree. He also deals with Volt Switch users in general, which many teams have one or two of. Not to mention Plasma Fists, which is based off of the effect of Ion Deluge, just giving the move 100 base power. This will allow Zeroara to effectively deal with Last Resort and Return sweepers across the map.

In conclusion, I'm just thrilled that the omniprese..

Blacephalon Moveset - Pokemon USUM

My mind is blowing up because I'm staying up WAYYY too late to do this. You're welcome.

After seeing UB Burst's stats, I knew I'd have to build it with a Scarf with it's signature move as a trump card. I was elated to see it got Trick for some additional trickery, adding to the randomness of the Firework Pokemon. Flamethrower helps cover for easier kills rather than the sacrifice Mind Blown requires. Shadow Ball is obvious STAB. Running Modest gives more nuking power while Timid gives better coverage if you Trick away your Scarf.


Modest/Timid/252 SpAtk/252 Spd @Choice Scarf

-Mind Blown


-Shadow Ball


But if you want a more efficient sweeper, I've got another option for you. This one will recei..

Stakataka Moveset - Pokemon USUM

I'm upset. This thing ACTUALLY got Gyro Ball.

Well, here we go, the set for the evil tanklord himself. Recycle is just plain broken with his defenses, and we can use it to abuse Figy Berries, which heal half health when below 25% HP. This keeps us healthy to nuke with Stone Edge and Gyro Ball, and thanks to Trick Room he can go first, unless you choose for him to use Stealth Rocks to help the team.


Brave/0 Spd IV's/252 Atk/252 Def @Figy Berry


-Stone Edge

-Gyro Ball

-Trick Room/Stealth Rock

This is if you enjoy being a poophead and getting others to ragequit. Infinite healing, Toxic for residual damage, Infestation to lock 'em in, and Sandstorm for more damage and your SpDef to get buffed by 1.5x or Light Screen ..

Naganadel Moveset - Pokemon USUM

Compared to it's defensively-minded baby form, this UB is now ready and raring to beat your opponent's team into shape!

Here's the setup sweeper Naganadel. This nasty bugger can even deal with Steel-types thanks to it's ability to learn Fire-type moves!


Timid/252 SpAtk/252 Spd @Expert Belt/Focus Sash

-Nasty Plot

-Dragon Pulse

-Sludge Wave

-Fire Blast/Flamethrower

And here's a fun nuker Naganadel who packs utility as well. Unfortunately, to run Timid, Naganadel loses the ability to Beast Boost her Special Attack, so reversing her into a Modest Scarf user works fine too.


Timid/252 Spd/252 SpAtk @Choice Specs

-Draco Meteor

-Sludge Wave

-Fire Blast


I'm very intr..

Dusk Mane Necrozma Moveset - Pokemon USUM

Enter the cover legendary of Pokemon Ultra Sun - Dusk Mane Necrozma!

Necrozma-Dusk-Mane @ Iapapa Berry

Ability: Prism Armor

EVs: 252 HP / 140 Atk / 40 Def / 76 SpD

Careful Nature

- Sunsteel Strike

- Photon Geyser

- Knock Off

- Recycle

This build takes advantage of the massive 157 Atk stat that is DM-Necrozma's while also utilizing his defensive capabilities with Prism Armor and Recycle to refresh berry healing. Photon Geyser affords a better option then Zen Headbutt and it's feared 10% miss chance plus the extra 20 base power. Knock Off is a great option to hinder the oppnnent's strategy. Enjoy using the ruler of the day!

Ultra Necroma Moveset - Pokemon USUM

Meet the legendary who teases us, half of his face appearing on the cover of Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon. Did you miss it? I almost did. BEHOLD, THE POWER OF ULTRA NECROZMA!!!!

Omega Nebby (Necrozma-Dawn-Wings) @ Ultranecrozium Z

Ability: Prism Armor

EVs: 4 HP / 252 SpA / 252 Spe

Timid Nature

IVs: 0 Atk

- Calm Mind

- Photon Geyser

- Dragon Pulse

- Flash Cannon

Before he can go Ultra, he's got to start as a cover legendary with Ultranecrozium Z equipped. I choose Dawn Wings Necrozma, thanks to his better Special Attack. The set I'm using features STAB (of course) and Flash Cannon to deal with Xerneas, as well as Calm Mind, which you can use once or twice in Dawn Wings form to bolster you..

Other means of getting Entei

Entei and Raikou were also available using Mystery Gift last January

Dawn Wings Necrozma Moveset - Pokemon USUM

Enter the cover legendary of Ultra Moon - Dawn Wings Necrozma!

Necrozma-Dawn-Wings @ Iapapa Berry

Ability: Prism Armor

EVs: 252 HP / 184 Def / 32 SpA / 40 SpD

Modest Nature

IVs: 0 Atk

- Calm Mind

- Iron Defense

- Recycle

- Stored Power

Thanks to Lunala, Necrozma receives a boost in Special Attack and his defenses, making him a perfect candidate for a build that increases those stats further to bolster the power of Stored Power. Thanks to Move Tutoring, Necrozma can also access Recycle, a slightly more efficient method of healing PP-wise while Prism Armor shields him from hyper-effective Ghost- and Dark-type moves. This set is a personal favorite of mine, so I hope you enjoy it as well!
