Waiting for opinions.

I think Analytic is quite good on an pure offensive set and Natural Cure for a more defensive one

IMO Natural Cure cuz Starmie is already very fast so analytic doesn't get much chance to kick in.

Yeah it's nice when the enemy switches on Starmie but Natural Cure is just a good safe option.
You get Toxic, Burned, Paralyzed, Freezed, Spored? Natural Cure takes care of it.

Somebody should make a Natural Cure commercial....

You summed it up yourself right here. It's down to how you set up your Starmie. Starmie has a niche as an offensive spinner that benefits from Analytic due to the switches it forces with its amazing coverage, but it's got surprising bulk and a great defensive movepool with access to Recover, Cosmic Power, both screens and more.

I'm still running offensive Starmie with Natural Cure lol. I don't have bred an Analytic one yet because I don't have Pokemon Dream Radar. Gonna get one on the trade board tho.

Analytic. I like it when Thundy or klefki used prior Wave on Starmie only for it to retaliate with ridiculously op special attack
