Strategy Using Jynx

Jynx has some awesome speed, Special defense and special attack and this moveset utilises it well. Although its defense sucks and will probably faint if struck by a physical attack it is still a good pokemon.
Anyway, the point of this moveset is to lovely kiss the first move and with the good speed, Jynx should be the first to launch an attack. Then Calm mind for boosts in special attack and special defense.
Then sweep away with the remaining two moves, which both gain an extra boost from STAB.
