Question Is this a good EV spread and nature?

Hey Forum,

Whats haaaaapnen!

So I have a Cloyster and I noticed that it would fit perfectly in my team as a sweeper. Im not sure of what nature to breed it or what EVs to give it. I know typically people breed a Jolly Cloyster with maxed speds and attack Evs but I was thinking somewhere on the lines of this:

Cloyster
Nature: Adamant
Ev: 4Atk/252Hp/252Spe
Item: White Herb
Moves:
-Icicle Spear
-Rock Smash
-Shell Smash
-Ice Shard/ Razor Shell

With its incredible defense I hope to take down Talonflame. What do yall think?
BTW I just joined the forum so add me for friend safari

I don't think you'll have any trouble beating Talonflame, at all.

I'm assuming its skill link. Either way i feel like speed is just a waste of time and EVs. I would probably just use Atk and Hp. 70 Speed isnt going to be beating much, i much rather survive stuff and hit really hard. Besides you have ice shard as a priority.

hi first i addded you so add me back wennefer ya fell like it hahha so this is my review on cloyster well ok if you want an attacker cloyster thats a good nature and some attacks but ill change some things first ill keep shell smash(obviously) and icecle spear just if you have the ability skill link, ill guess you?ll use it cuz well... ok then if you dont have a rapid spiner i recommend use cloyster as it but if any of your pokemon dont fear spikes or steath rock its ok or have a poison tipe for toxic spikes. ill talk of sticky web later. if you decide not put rapid spin ill recommend use rock bast and then for the 4rt move ether razor shell or ice shard(for the priority). now talk evs cloyster speed is base 70 its like "meh" by that i mean if you try get 252 it be faster than some things but still wont outsped much specially talonflame and the sell smash will automatically race your speed so in the first turn (faster or not) your guaranteed to be hit and besides if you decide to use it as a rapid spiner and try to get rid of sticky web your speed will be decreased. the best stats cloyster had are attack whit 95 and that deffence whit and autstanding 180! so i recommend to use 252 in attack(because you said you wanted a sweeper), and if you want a bulky pokemon its def ether 252 or 126 and its hp ether 4 or 126 ,thats on you,. so thats my recommendation on cloyster. oh yea item i almost forgot if you dicede not to use the shell smash trick or dont care of the lower deffence i recomend use a kings rock. because the icicle spear and the rock blast makes flinching more usual and that flinching though! good luck on your battles hahahah se ya

Thank you, for the replies! Yes I definitely have skill link as my ability. Thank you for all of your replies, I think that I will just keep my EVs the same and have ice shard for priority I don't usually like to go with the popular choices in EV spreads and move pools with my Pokemon. So I will try it out and see if it fits my team.

Thanx again
