Pokemon Of The Day: Mega Slowbro Moveset

On its own merits, Slowbro last metagame was a fantastic physically defensive walls. Slowbro has all the tools to succeed in such role. I mean it has an incredible secret ability in Regenerator, excellent defensive typing, good bulky stats and access to a reliable recovery move in Slack Off.

In Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, Slowbro becomes a better defensive monstrosity with a spanking new Mega Evolutions. Mega Slowbro is among the best Mega Evolutions introduced in Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. With an gigantic base 180 Defensive stat, base 130 Special Attack and a lovely ability in Shell Armor.

If you for a defensive pivot in your team, then look no further then Mega Slowbro.


Calm Mind Mega Slowbro @ Slowbroite

Nature: Bold, EVS: 252 Hp, 252 Def, 4 SpA

  • Calm Mind
  • Rest/Slack Off
  • Psyshock
  • Scald

I see this set often online and it’s not hard to see why. This shell is extremely difficult to crack thanks to its incredible bulk and relative power on the Special side. Calm Mind is a means to boost Mega Slowbro Special Attack and Special Defense to insane heights. With a few Calm Minds under its belts and in conjunction with its impressive defense stats, Mega Slowbro can be near impossible to take out. Rest is the preferred recovery option blocking toxic stalling from the likes of Chansey and Blissey. Psyshock allows Mega Slowbro to hit premier special walls like Chansey and Blissey extremely hard. Meanwhile, Scald is a reliable Stab that may cause Burn.


Defensive Tank Mega Slowbro

Calm Mind Mega Slowbro @ Slowbroite

Nature: Bold, EVS: 252 Hp, 252 Def, 4 SpA

  • Slack Off
  • Toxic
  • Psyshock
  • Scald

This is more of a stock standard tank with the sole purpose to soak up attacks. With its aforementioned defensive stats, Mega Slowbro can switch into many physical attack with relative impunity and can respond back with a decent hitting Special Move. Slack Off is the obligatory recovery increasing the life of Mega Slowbro, while Psyshock and Scald are reliable stabs. This set does have trouble dealing with Chansey, Blissey and Ferrothorn. But nonetheless, this is a very solid build for Mega Slowbro.
