    Description:

    Gogoat is one of Generation Six's more ignored Pokemon, however it's utterly fantastic. It's been given fantastic support moves such as Bulk Up and even Milk Drink! Along with this, it has a fantastic offensive movepool with treasures like Horn Leech, Leaf Blade, Earthquake, Brick Break, Wild Charge, Rock Slide and others. Even in his limited Special movepool he has access to Surf for some reason, allowing him to nail Fire types on the switch in. On top of all this, he gets access to Sap Sipper to absorb incoming Grass type attacks and has a whopping 123 base HP stat, allowing Gogoat to survive many attacks that other Pokemon simply couldn't. However not all is good for our livestock friend, as his typing is decidedly mediocre and his Defense stat is unfortunately limited without Bulk Up boosts. On top of this, he's slow making him Taunt / Burn bait and has crippling weaknesses to three of the most common attacking types in the metagame. If you can look past these shortcomings however, you'll find that Gogoat has the potential to wall your opponent's to hell and back.

    Set #1: Bulk Up

    Gogoat @ Leftovers
    Ability: Sap Sipper
    EVs: 252 HP / 4 Atk / 252 SpD
    Careful Nature
    - Bulk Up
    - Milk Drink
    - Horn Leech / Leaf Blade
    - Earthquake / Rock Slide

    Set Description:

    The concept of this set is simple. Bulk Up, Milk Drink when needed and sweep. Horn Leech is your designated STAB and will also restore health (it's basically a Grass type version of Drain Punch), however if you prefer sheer base power and think that Milk Drink will be enough, then you could run Leaf Blade which has higher BP and a critical hit chance. The last slot depends on the coverage you need. Earthquake nails more, but Rock Slide will allow you a way to defeat Flying types which would otherwise give you hell.

    Other Options:

    Gogoat has countless other options, Choice Band and Choice Spec sets are perfectly viable as well due to Gogoat's unique coverage. A mixed Scarf set is even viable in this case. Gogoat can also abuse Assault Vest with four attacking moves and an Adamant nature, relying on Horn Leech for recovery.
