Tried out this trolly set, fun to use:

Whimsicott @ Rocky Helmet
Ability: Prankster
Nature: Bold/Calm
EVs: 252 HP, 252 Def, 4 S.Atk

Cotton Guard
Encore
Leech Seed
Giga Drain
Caution: Expect rage quits.

For use after the removal of poison types and maybe special sweepers. Come in on a setup mon (sweeper or defensive, doesn't matter), use encore, set up cotton guard and leech seed, and annoy your opponent.

Whimsicott (F) @ Choice Specs
Ability: Infiltrator
Evs: 6 Def, 252 Sp.Atk, 252 Spd
Nature: Modest (+Sp.Atk,-Atk)
- Energy Ball
- Moonblast
- Hurricane
- Shadow Ball

Timid can be used instead of Modest. Anyways, not much to explain here. Energy Ball & Moonblast are STAB, while Hurricane & Shadow Ball are coverage. Infiltrator hits through Substitute & Screens.

Nice speed and decent defense, overall a nice competitive Pokémon!

Ability: Infiltrator? (I don't really use substitute Whimsicott so the ability doesn't really matter.)
IVs: (I'm not going to be exact cuz I'm lazy. Just make it around 250 Def./250 Sp. Def/10 Spd

Moves:
Encore
Good for Pokémon who set up and restore HP. Imagine using that on a recover Mewtwo. Gives you lots of time to setup, (Leech Seed, Cotton Guard, etc.) I did it on a Deoxys once! :D

Leech Seed
Nice recovery system/damaging system. Getting a burn in there somewhere is perfect.

Moonblast
I think stab? Correct me if I'm wrong! Nice power, (95) And good for another way of damage. A 30% chance of lowering Sp.Attack is nice too!

Cotton Guard/Protect
Just good setup moves.

This is my Whimsicott.

Whimsicott [M] @Big Root
Ability: Prankster
[Move Set]

Giga Drain- Heals more HP with the Big Root attatched.

Toxic- Slowly helps wear down the foe.

Leech Seed- Also help wear down the foe while also healing.

Calm Mind- Raises Def. and Sp Def.

[Strategy]

I like to start out with a Leech Seed, So I can get health back every turn.
Then I raise my def. and sp. def. with Calm Mind, making it harder to deal damage on Whimsicott.
I then use toxic, poisonning my foe, also the poison deals more damage every turn.
Then I continue giga drainning, getting a lot of health back every turn.

[Note]
I replaced calm mind with Twister, I have a Mew with my baton pass strategy.

Whimsicott @Leftovers
Nature:Quiet
Evs:252HP, 252 Sp. Attack 4 Defense
Ability: Prankster
1. Leech Seed: with a toxic spikes lead you can have a lot of fun
2. Substitute: with leftovers and leech seed you gain back the health pretty quick
3. Protect: further time to regain HP if you can't set up leech seed
4. Nature Power: because it is a status move it gets priority, really good for taking out the last little bit of the enemy's health

A Pokemon that would be horrible if it wasn't for Mischeivous Heart, meaning it is now just bad (which is better than horrible.)

Ability: Mischeivous Heart

EVs: Sp Attack, Sp Def, Def Nature: Bold

Encore: Perfect. Perfect. Just perfect.

Giga Drain: Damage combined with healing.

Hidden Power Rock: I'm going to start suggesting this now. I've found out how to get it the way I want easily. I am so happy.

Psychic: Deals with Poison types.
