Well, this guy has potential in the rain. With its Swift Swim ability, its Speed will double in the rain. Let's put the speed into use.

Kabutops (M) @ Focus Sash
Trait: Swift Swim
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Stone Edge
- X-Scissor
- Swords Dance
- Waterfall

Basic rain sweeping Kabutops. Swift Swim will double its Speed, and Swords Dance doubles that already good Attack. Focus Sash allows it to take a hit so it can set up Swords Dance. Stone Edge and Waterfall are STAB; Waterfall gets a rain boost and Flinch Rate! X-Scissor is for dealing with that 4x Grass weakness.

Kabutops (M) @ Focus Sash
Trait: Swift Swim
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Rock Slide
- Brick Break
- Swords Dance
- Aqua Jet

Another moveset revolving around Swords Dance and Swift Swim. Focus Sash once again lets you take a hit, but this time we have Aqua Jet. Aqua Jet normally has a 40 base power, but with Swords Dance, rain boost, and STAB, this can turn really powerful. Rock Slide is STAB and Brick Break is coverage.

However, one thing destroys these movesets, especially the first one-Priority.

Overall, Kabutops is great in the rain, with Swift Swim, Swords Dance and that great physical movesets. However, priority gives him a bit of trouble.

Rating: 8.5/10

You didn't do a bad job or anything, but I've got two more sets I'd like to give mention to.



The Choice band:

Kabutops (M) @ Choice Band

Trait: Swift Swim

EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd

Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)

- Waterfall
- Stone Edge
- Brick Break
- X-Scissor

Choice band just says " Screw this! " to trying to set up and starts off sweeping.

Waterfall is STAB, reliable accuracy, rain boosted, flinch rate. It's just plain nice.
Stone Edge is STAB and high crit.
Brick break and X-scissor are coverage, it's rather standard.

Physilca[Alt]:

Kabutops (M) @ Focus Sash

Trait: Swift Swim

EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd

Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)

- Aqua Jet
- Waterfall
- Swords Dance
- Stone Edge

Nowadays, nobody bothers using Aqua Jet and Waterfall in the same set.

This was my standard for a Kabutops back in the day, Waterfall is STAB, Swords dance is boosting, Aqua Jet is the unexpected priority!! While Stone Edge is... More STAB!

Overall, I'll keep Mew's rating. 8.5 works for this guy.
