Movesets for Singles
What is a good competitive moveset for Mantine? These builds have been optimized for Pokemon competing in Gold/Silver Single Battles. The movesets and EVs have been specifically calibrated to deal the most amount of damage to the largest group of potentially common opponents and typing threats for the Gold/Silver generation metagame.
Mantine is an awesome Water and Flying-typed Pokemon. It's a pretty regular sight to see Mantine out in the 2nd generation battlefield. There were no known abilities back in the Gold/Silver Pokemon games. Mantine's only type-related weaknesses are Electric and Rock.

Special Sweeper Mantine (Retro)
Mantine is a sensational Special Sweeper. This moveset attempts to take down the opponent's team with high-damaging special attacks. In the dark days before Generation IV, a move's damage category was determined by its type. Focus Sash helps protect Mantine from being one-shotted and allowing it to atleast use a crucial move when brought out.
♦ Waterfall is a special STAB-boosted 80-base power Water-type move that deals a great amount of damage.
♦ Ice Beam is a special 95-base power Ice-type move (10% chance to freeze the target).
♦ Icy Wind is a special 55-base power Ice-type move (100% chance to lower the target's speed by 1 stage).
♦ Twister is a special 40-base power Dragon-type move (20% chance to flinch the target).
♦ Protect is a status move (prevents moves from affecting your Mantine this turn).
