Strategy Using Spinda

Spinda stats are all at a base of 60, its not the best pokemon available, but it does have a large movepool.
Even with Calm mind, this pokemon will have trouble since its other stats are bad. However, the risk Calm mind takes is your only chance of actually powering up to be strong enough to sweep your opponent.
Sweep with Psychic, Water pulse and HP fire when you feel you've done a sufficient amount of calm minding. HP Fire can be replaced with any other HP special you feel your team is lacking.
Its ability, own tempo, is useful if your opponent tries to confuse Spinda. Nature and EV's are too boost speed, which is needed on Spinda if it wants any chance of surviving. The EV's also boost Spinda's special attack, which will also be helpful.
Spinda isn't the best pokemon to use as a special sweeper, but if you wish to use this creature, then the above moveset should work out just fine, just don't be too surprised if it faints from a Physical hit.
