Strategy Using Walrein

Walrein has good stats in all but speed. The reason I picked Modest as its nature was due to it needing a boost in special attack, the other choice was Timid but this wouldn't help out the pokemon since it already has below average speed.
I would like to point out that its ability isn't that good, I doubt you'll see anybody use a fire or ice attack on a Walrein. Maxed out EV's in Special attack to boost the three moves: Surf, Ice beam, HP Psychic. EV's into HP and Defense will help it last longer. The move Encore can prove useful if your opponent uses a move that is designed to boost stats, giving you time to launch attacks.
You can consider replacing Encore with Yawn to put your opponent's pokemon asleep. Surf and Ice beam, both get extra strength from STAB and are also excellent sweeping moves. HP Psychic is something you don't see that often but will prove useful in most battles.
Its a shame this pokemon is considered under-used, it has loads of potential and should be considered in any team.

EV Corner:

Max out the EVs in Special Attack for Walrein with any remaining in Hit Points & Defense
