Quagsire, The Water Fish Pokémon. It has an easygoing nature. It doesn't care if it bumps its head on boats and boulders while swimming.A dim-witted Pokémon. It doesn't care if it bumps its head into boats or rocks while swimming. It has a sluggish nature. It lies at the river's bottom, waiting for prey to stray into its mouth. Due to its relaxed and carefree attitude, it often bumps its head on boulders and boat hulls as it swims.
Quagsire is a fairly decent Pokémon. In Generation IV, it had a number of uses as a bulky water, but with the Hidden Ability it received, it becomes even more amazing. It can wall, it can do decent damage, it can be just generally amazing.
Damp: prevents Selfdestruct, Explosion and Aftermath from being used by opponent.
If you wish to be offensive with Quagsire, then this is the set you should use. Curse boosts its Attack and Defense while, with Unaware, it allows you to be able to fully face any of the enemy's setups. Earthquake provides decent STAB damage while Stone Edge & Waterfall provide other type options to give decent coverage. Recover allows you to stall the opponents and keep this strategy up.
Defence! Defence! Defence!
Quagsire can be a very bulky Pokémon so, as such, you can use its defences to your advantage, especially with Unaware factoring things into the fold. Scald is a great move which gives STAB as well as potentially burning the opponent, which halves their Attack stat. Recover will heal you. Toxic will poison the opponent while Yawn will put it to sleep. Earthquake is the general STAB user
While Quagsire doesn't have the best Attack stat, you can still get a decent Choice Band set in. However, to get the best coverage, Ice Punch is required which is only available with Water Absorb at the moment. All the moves are pretty self explanatory, each doing damage and having decent coverage

Double & Triple Battle Options
Quagsire is one of the Pokémon that can run both Surf and Earthquake, although it's Surf is not the best due to itrs mediocre Special Attack
Bug or Steel Pokémon like Scizor are good partners for Quagsire. As Quagsire is likely to be targetted by Grass-type moves, switching into these will allow you to do some decent damage. Volcarona is also a decent partner for it, being able to do decent damage against those who can hurt Quagsire
As most Quagsire now run with Unaware, you cannot Baton Pass in or set up many of the powerhouses in the game. As such, you need to focus strategically. Grass-types are a must, being able to deal 4x damage. As most Quagsire also run Scald, you need to also think about using special attackers more than physical attackers. As such, Pokémon such as Lilligant are perfect to face off against Quagsire. The Mold Breaker ability can also completely override Quagsire's Unaware, allowing you to be able to set up a beastly attacker. Haxorus is a decent example of this
