    Special Wall:

    ~ Stealth Rock

    ~ Thunder Wave / Toxic

    ~ Earth Power

    ~ Power Gem / Flash Cannon

    252 HP / 168 SpD / 88 Spe Leftovers Calm

    Probopass, quite unlike Nosepass of Advance, is a very potent wall in UU. Unlike its Rock/Steel counterpart Aggron, Probopass is primarily used for special walling; its ability to wall special attacks is nearly unrivaled in UU. Stealth Rock is optimal on this set, as Probopass will have ample opportunities to set it up when switching in and out. The second move slot is occupied with some form of status. Thunder Wave is recommended to hit fast, powerful Fighting-types (excluding Limber Hitmonlee) or sweepers with Earthquake that Probopass seems to attract like a magnet (no pun intended). Toxic is also a fine option to wear down bulky Waters and opposing walls that have a tendency to switch into Probopass.

    Earth Power is incredibly useful to hit the grounded Steel-types Probopass will be trapping with Magnet Pull. The 88 Speed EVs are there to outpace defensive Aggron (Rock Polish or Choice Band variations will outspeed you), as well as Steelix. Power Gem and Flash Cannon are useful STAB options, the former getting better coverage with Earth Power and the latter hitting Claydol and most Ice-types harder. Thunder or Thunderbolt are also options if you want to hurt bulky Waters that aren't part Ground.

    Magnet Rise

    ~ Magnet Rise

    ~ Earth Power

    ~ Taunt / Substitute

    ~ Power Gem / Flash Cannon

    168 HP / 252 SpA / 88 Spe Leftovers Modest

    Unlike the last set, which mainly served to wall, this set is specifically designed to switch into and trap the Steel-types of UU, as well as eliminating one of Probopass' crippling weaknesses. Magnet Rise helps block Steelix's and Aggron's potential Earthquake, meaning that you completely wall them. Substitute is useful for Bastiodon, whom you outspeed and set up a Substitute before they can Taunt, or possibly even use Metal Burst. It also helps Probopass avoid deadly Fighting-type attacks. Taunt is to prevent the use of Roar which most of the Steel-types in UU tend to have (barring opposing Probopass). Power Gem is listed as the primary option as it provides better type coverage than Flash Cannon. However, Flash Cannon is worth considering as it hits Claydol (which can be useful after a Magnet Rise, as this would disallow Claydol from doing any repectable damage in return), Hitmontop and other Fighting-types harder than Earth Power or Power Gem.

    This Probopass set is much more offensive than the previous set, mostly to increase the strength of Earth Power against other Steel-types, but it still can take hits fairly well. However, don't expect to be sweeping teams with its mediocre 75 base Special Attack.

    Choce Specs:

    ~ Earth Power

    ~ Hidden Power Grass

    ~ Flash Cannon / Explosion

    ~ Power Gem

    168 HP / 252 SpA / 88 Spe Choice Specs Modest

    Though this set may look strange at first glance, Probopass actually makes good use of Choice Specs due to his large special movepool, despite Base 75 Special Attack. Earth Power is useful as ever, OHKOing Aggron and dealing up to 80% to Steelix. With the boost Choice Specs provides, Earth Power also does respectable damage to Lanturn and Muk. Hidden Power Grass is for bulky Water-types, in particular Quagsire and Gastrodon. Flash Cannon provides a reliable STAB attack, but Explosion is an option to take out Hypno and Grumpig once they've figured out you're carrying Choice Specs. Power Gem is an additional STAB option and is useful against Flying-types such as Altaria and Mantine, which 2HKOs both with Stealth Rock in play.

    Hope I helped =]

    For the best answers, search on this site https://shorturl.im/avoRK

    I'd say: Magnet Rise Probopass is really weak to Ground-Types, so this move will temporarily solve that problem. Thunderbolt To take care of the weakness against most Water-Types Stone Edge/Rock Slide It gets a STAB (Same Type Attack Bonus) of +50%. So Stone Edge will be 150 damage and Rock Slide will be 112.5 damage. Flash Cannon Same reason for Stone Edge/Rock Slide I hope this helps ^_^

    i answered the arcanine one....first of all, take out the legendaries, only noobs have legendaries. they cant win without them. without your legendaries, your team would lose....fast... infernape can take down every single pokemon here....even your legendaries. okay once you take out your two legendaries, you have the freedom of two new pokemon. you should choose a water like gyarados, since i hate them, and they are annoying to defeat, and a psychic or flying pokemon. you should change your team first then ask about movesets.... right now your team is a 3 in threat level and only because of those legendaries.... i hate legendaries...they are annoying, and make it seem like noobs have skill...
