Hallo, peoples! I'm a bit at a loss for how to build a Tentacruel nowadays...
First, I haven't used him much, so I'm not sure what the best sets are, but I have some ideas. The problem is, I seem to be running into the issue of 4-Moveslot Syndrome here...
Rapid Spin Toxic/Toxic Spikes Scald Sludge Bomb Knock Off Protect
With the addition of Fairies everywhere, and some Grass Types being used more, Sludge Bomb seems like a much more useful choice now than it was in previous Generations. But also with the buff to Knock Off, it gives Tentacruel a way to deal with Pokemon like Gengar and Trevenant, who are both premiere spinblockers, correct?
I've been thinking of a Rapid Spin/Scald/Sludge Bomb/Knock Off set. but I worry about if my Tentacruel will fall short due to not having Toxic or Toxic Spikes... Though Scald and Sludge Bomb do have very nice percentages for dropping status afflictions, and Knock Off is great for anything weak to it, or anything that relies on its Held Item like Choice Item or Eviolite users. (Heck, I know I love it on my Sableye!)
What are your thoughts? Anyone here have some successful sets they've been using?
