What is the best moveset for Nidoqueen? I got a shiny Nidoran female in a trade, and I want to use it. I can't breed any moves onto it (the shininess will get lost then!) so what should I do with it?

I think nidoqueen can learn amnesia, which is great, as it takes quite a bit of grief from special attacks. Then, we need three offensive moves.

The thing with nidoqueen, is that as she is ground and poison, she can't be paralyzed by t-wave or toxic'd/poisoned.
This makes her great for sweeping.

I would recommend quake - she doesn't have that good offensive stats and thus the 150 stabbed base damage will hurt a lot. Body slam is good for paralysis, but I find that having two elemental moves allow great sweepage, so go with the legendary ice/electric combo, I think it can learn t-bolt and icebeam, and pokes who don't worry about ice/electric usually suffer to ground, take for example magneton!!! Also, major hazers such as blastoise, weezing, xatu, crobat all take grief from these three attacks, thus you can amnesia up, and when they come in to haze, you can blast em good and proper!!

Nope, she can't. That's Nidoking's department.


I seem to recall Earthquake, Thunderbolt, Fire Blast, and some fourth move being recommended somewhere. There's all kinds of options for her.

Again, Nidoran female can not breed for Amnesia. Nidoran male can.

And besides, even if she could, Lark84 said he doesn't want to breed since he has a shiny Nidoran female.

Nidoqueen can't get Explosion either, if that's what you mean...

Father: Furret, Amnesia/Rest/Mud-Slap/Headbutt

Mother: NidoranF, moveset irrelevant

Baby 1: NidoranM, Amnesia/Rest/Mud-Slap/Headbutt

Baby 2: NidoranF, Tackle/Rest/Mud-Slap/Headbutt. No Amnesia

BTW, in breeding moves, NidoranF gets Charm, and NidoranM doesn't.
