Lets see what you all come up with Ampharos...not something you see everyday in OU, of course, but I'd like to know what it does best :3

Amphy <3 So cute ^_^

Choice Specs / Life Orb
~ Volt Switch
~ Focus Blast
~ Hidden Power Ice
~ Thunderbolt
208 HP / 252 SpA / 48 Spe

A tank set makes the most of Ampharos's excellent power and bulk. Volt Switch eases prediction, allowing your team to keep up the momentum and dictate play. Ampharos's low Speed can sometimes be an advantage for your team, as a slow Volt Switch eases prediction and gives frailer Pokemon a free switch-in. However, it would be wise not to let Ampharos take too many hits, as it lacks recovery and can be easily worn down by residual damage.

The other three moves provide Ampharos with great coverage, enabling it to OHKO or 2HKO almost every Pokemon in the metagame. Focus Blast decimates the omnipresent Rock- and Normal-types in NU, such as Regirock and Lickilicky, while Hidden Power eliminates the Ground-types that are immune to Ampharos's STAB attacks. Hidden Power Ice completes the pseudo-BoltBeam combination and takes down Grass-types such as Amoonguss, as well as Dragon-types such as Altaria. Thunderbolt is the final move and Ampharos's most powerful on the set; as it doesn't force Ampharos to switch out, it is most useful for sustained sweeping. Thunderbolt's power is so great that it has a good chance to 2HKO even the most specially defensive Lickilicky after Stealth Rock, so not much prediction is required when using it.

AMPHAROS!! YES!! like this electric PKMN. ill just post one set as im running out of time

Set name: Sub-Punch
EVs: 116 HP / 140 Atk / 252 SAtk
Ability: Static
Item: Leftovers
Quiet Nature (+SAtk, -Spd)
- Substitute
- Focus Punch
- Thunderbolt / Discharge
- Hidden Power Ice / Grass

If you look at Pokefan5432's set, it has focus blast, so you can ditch Focus Blast's unreliable accuracy for the Sub-Punch combo. Throw up a Substitute and then safely fire off successful Focus Punches at your desired target. Thunderbolt provides reliable STAB, but it can be traded in for the slightly less powerful Discharge for that 30% paralysis chance. Once again, round things off with Hidden Power, picking the one that compliments your team the most. This set isn't all that great and kind of old, but it works well in NU as a sub-puncher as Ampharos has sub-par offensive stats.
