Cloyster- Ice Shard or Ice BEAM?

Right now my Cloyster knows Ice Beam, Spikes, Surf, and ummmm something else. But its ability is Shell armor, im pretty sure, And I just realized how GOOD Ice Shard is with Skill Link. Should I redo the cloyster but with Ice Shard and Skill Link?

Do you mean Icicle Spear?
By Right of Blood... by Right of the Seven who wove it, I would see through the veil of time!

I think he means Icicle Spear. The only good thing about multi-hit moves is the ability to break subs
Every time someone thinks I like flan, I help CK kill cats. Number of cats killed: 23

When Chomp was still OU, Icicle Spear broke through the Yache Berry and killed it off with skill link. But Cloyster is a bad pokemon, so it wasn't really worth it.

BladePenguin~Off course you don't get it, It's too advanced for you, hence advance technique.

Cloyster is not a bad pokemon, and has been used plenty of times in OU, it is a hard pokemon to use correctly though, and heavily relies on other tanks and special sponges i.e Swampert/ Blissey.

As for Ice Shard or Ice beam, it depends on your team. I personally like Ice Shard better for my spiking cloyster because I am not trying to deal massive amount of damage to my opponent through attacking. Besides, Cloyster is rather on the slow slide.
