Soft-Boiled

Serene Grace is a potent Ability that doubles the side-effects of all moves the Pokemon uses. This set takes advantage of this Ability's potential with three attacking moves which can inflict status effects. With Expert Belt, its damage will increase when it scores a super-effective hit, and with its extremely high HP and Special Attack, it can field a variety of Special moves, while inflicting harmful status ailments and crippling its opponents.

Thunder suffers from a low accuracy, but thanks to Serene Grace, has a 60% chance of inflicting Paralysis when it lands.

Other Viable Moves

Dazzling Gleam For handling Dark-type opponents. Hits Hydreigon for 4x super effective damage.
Thunderbolt An alternate choice for Thunder, with an improved accuracy for when you don't want to risk your luck.

How to Use Blissey Effectively

Extremely strong against Special Attackers

As a Normal-type Pokemon, Blissey has only one weakness, and with the highest HP in the game and formidable Special Defense to boot, it can absorb even hard-hitting attacks from Special Attackers, then heal its lost HP with Soft-Boiled.

That said, although its HP and Special Defense are extremely high, it has one of the lowest Defense stats in the game, so Blissey will need to watch out for Physical moves to stay in the game.

Counters for Blissey

Physical Fighting moves can take it down

Blissey's only weakness is Fighting-types moves, coupled with its extremely low Defense. By hitting it with a Physical Fighting-type Move, this pink puffball will be down for the count.
