Alright my fellow players, I'm being crazy again and training a Corsola!

So....

For the moveset I'm thinking of
Sandstorm
Calm Mind
Scald
Power Gem

Reason for this, is due to Sandtorm raising Sp.Def adding Calm Mind seemed like a sound plan.

Or.....should I fit Recover in there somewhere
OR.....should I try it out and share things.....or you can just say your opinions on the matter.

Corsola is pretty awful, but awful things are fun. I can't really suggest anything other than the standard Smogon NU set though.

edit: ^This is the set that I discuss in my post.

According to Smogon (I know, let's not start a flame war), Corsola could be a decent (or mediocre) Stealth Rocks setter. You're never going to sweep or survive with Corsola, so you'd might as well use it to set up Stealth Rocks. They recommend:

Stealth Rock (The point of the set)
Toxic (To actually deal damage)
Scald (To potentially burn and cripple physical walls)
Recover (To maybe survive more than one hit if trying to Toxic stall)

Also, it gets Regenerator, which can massively increase its longevity if you feel the need to save it for another match-up. It's not 100% pointless and should be able to set up the ever-useful Stealth Rocks (but so too can Geodude), but don't even try to use its offenses (a paltry 55 Atk and 65 Atk).

Hmmm....guess I'll be testing things then.
Let's see how it goes

Also, fairly niche, but it gets Mirror Coat, so you could use it as a pseudo-Wobbuffet for a surprise KO on a Special Attacker with your Focus Sash.
