|Held Item||Mystic Water|
・ Air Slash
These values are from base stats and ideal EVs, excluding external factors.
To make Inteleon's Ability Torrent activate, this set uses Endure to survive a hit with 1 HP. Mystic Water is chosen for the Held Item because it can power up Water-type moves to 120% of their normal power. These two can stack the two boosts to bring Inteleon's damage to approximately 180% its normal value. When Dynamaxed, Air Slash will change into Max Airstream, boosting its Speed and allowing it to put relentless pressure on the opponent.
|Hydro Pump||An alternate choice for Hydro Cannon. Skips the recovery turn, but its low accuracy can cause problems.|
|Ice Beam||Allows it to handle foes of many different typings. An alternate choice for Scald.|
|Dark Pulse||Can limit the opponent's movement by causing flinching.|
Inteleon takes advantage of its high Base Speed to fulfill the role of an ace attacker. If you choose to Dynamax, its move Max Geyser can change the weather to rain, further powering up its Water-type moves.
Inteleon's singular Water typing is both its greatest strength and its greatest weakness. Its Ability to use powerful Water moves with STAB makes its Hydro Pump fearsome, but excessive reliance on these moves renders it immobile against foes with an Ability granting Water immunity. Pokemon such as Lapras and Quagsire with Water Absorb can leave Inteleon without a viable reaction.
