Help me Gamefaqs. Which would be better?

A Modest Sylveon with 252 HP/252 Sp Atk/ 4 Def?

Or a Bold Sylveon with 252 HP and a balance between Defense and Sp Atk?

First one.

Sylveon's HP isn't high enough to pull what Vaporeon can do.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but Sylveon doesn't really have the movepool to do much sweeping, so probably go with Bold or Calm. Not sure about EVs though.

I was thinking of running:

Calm Mind
Draining Kiss
Shadow Ball
Psyshock/Skill Swap (Can't decide)


Calm Mind for extra bulk and Sp Atk, while also making Draining Kiss hit like a truck, therefore, more HP gained.

I said coverage. By that i mean it has an extra type with which to deal damage with. It learns grass type moves. Grass knot, Energy Ball, Solar beam ect.

Higher speed and special attack too. It also has better support skills with aromatherapy and wish automatically built in.

Sylveon is too slow and too frail physically to benefit from Calm mind (and already has great Sp def and attack).

Reflect might be an option.

It also has 2 field moves. One that gives HP recovery every turn ( questionable usefulness since it heals everything not just your pokemon ) and the fairy type field move which blocks status entirely. It seems very much like its built for doubles and triples. It should work fine in singles though.
