The vacuum of space is most definitely a more preferable environment to the political one - Shmewdog

-Substitute
+Surf

EV in both attack stats.

Give him a Focus Sash.

You don't need speed EVs because Smashing takes care of that for you, and no one ever suspects the mixed set.

Actually, most people who know what Shell Smash Cloyster is know that it usually runs the mixed set with Naive nature and Surf/Hydro Pump to take care of physical walls. But that's still the best route to take.

Can't Cloyster be a spinner?

I'm just throwing that out there since it seems like something that might be useful.

I don't feel like you like you need speed evs, maybe 100, after one shell smash you'll be faster than everything

...really?

People are always shocked when they break out a physical wall and I Surf it to death.

Huh.

I'm not sure about you, but my revenge killer for +2 Cloyster in my Excadrill, and it has no problem taking them out.
