...on everything.

Moveset, Ability(leaning toward Frisk, can be explained if necessary), IVs'll be pretty obvious based on the moveset, etc.

Sounds pretty good. Any other suggested movesets? Ideally one that could be either for Mega or regular Banette so I can switch up my team as needed.

Banette isn't worth using UNLESS it's Mega, so if you do decide to switch up your team, switch Banette out with it.

Banette is a favorite of mine, that's all.

I use the same moveset but Shadow Claw instead of Taunt.

I figured! I have a Mega Banette on one of my teams, and I love it. The set I usually run is:

Banette w/ Banettite
Cursed Body (Frisk would be a better option, though. Mine just already had Cursed Body)./ Prankster
Adamant
252 HP/252 Atk/ 6 Def

Protect/Shadow Sneak
Thunder Wave
Destiny Bond
Phantom Force/Knock Off/Shadow Claw

T-Wave and Phantom Force work pretty well together, and Banette has a huuuge attack stat. Not the best set, but it works. Priority Destiny Bond is just great.

The problem with Banette is that Prankster doesn't work until the turn AFTER you evolve, so you need protect, unless you can revenge kill something weakened with Shadow Sneak. If you do decide to run Shadow Sneak, then use Knock Off instead of Phantom Force or Shadow Claw, so you aren't walled by Normal-types.

So... if I'm getting this right, I could Phantom Force into mega-evolving, then whether they switch out or not, I'll at least have a shot of dealing some damage. :D

The problem with that is that Banette is slow, and fairly frail as well. It's not taking more than 2 hits under ideal conditions.

I'm not looking to build a team with Banette in it: I know I'd be sure to lose. I just want her to stand as the best Banette possible. I'm trying to get the best of all mega Pokémon by breeding.

Ultimately, Banette is pretty much just a setup Pokémon, right?
