I aim to misbehave

Vaporeon is more of a Cleric than anything. It's mostly used as a Wish-Passer, but I've seen Baton Pass work with Acid Armor for pretty good results.I want to give Bold Vaporeon some power, what are some good SpA numbers to hit?
Bold nature already increases Def slightly, so if you're going to invest anything in SpA, I would invest it from what you get in Def from the nature. Keep in mind that the only real good STAB move Vaporeon gets is Scald. Yes, Surf, Muddy Water, and Hydro Pump are stronger, but Hydro Pump has awful accuracy, and Surf/Muddy Water don't have effect bonuses like Scald does (a high burn chance).
Please remember that Vaporeon is built for support, and gets walled by a lot. Plus, in a metagame where water is present on most teams, you'll more often than not only be hitting for neutral damage.
