Eh from your EVs/Nature it seems your running more of a support Relicanth so do something along the lines of this;
Relicanth @ Leftovers
Trait: Rock Head
Impish Nature
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Atk / 252 Def
-Head Smash
-Stealth Rock

An offensive relicanth would probably look like;
Relicanth @ Life Orb
Trait: Rock Head
Adamant Nature
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe
-Head Smash
-Rock Polish

Those are good sets
Can't I choose Yawn over Toxic? ... I was thinking of putting Toxic on another pokemon ..
That's a very nice strategy, putting Yawn, not many pokemon learn it. And toxic can be learnt by every pokemon, and it not dependent on Sp Atl/Atk, so yea, you could probably put it on other pokemon
Ok Thanks for the Advice! :D

First time move setting, forgive me if I suck.
If you want power, here is a choice band set:

RockyChoiceCanth @ Choice Band
Nature: Impish
Trait: Rock head
EVs: 252 Atk, 252 Spd, 4 Def.

  • Head smash/Stone edge
  • Aqua tail/Waterfall
  • Earthquake
  • Double Edge/Bounce

Head smash is great for Rock Head and choice band, having great power with stab, Stone edge is for crits if you like to go haxy. Aqua tail is great power, but if you prefer accuracy over power and hax with flinch, then go right ahead, waterfall is their. Earthquake, no explanation. Double edge is just for great power to go with rock head, but if you want coverage against grass, bounce is your friend.

Here is one for going fast:

PolishingShoes @ Life Orb
Nature: Impish
Trait: Rock head
EVs: 252 Atk, 252 Spd, 4 Def.

  • Rock Polish
  • Head smash
  • Aqua tail/Waterfall
  • Earthquake

What boosts speed? Rock polish. This is the main move for the set, as it boosts speed. Use it a few times and most likely you will be speedin'. Head smash, STAB, to go with Rock head. Aqua tail, awesome power, but waterfall can be used for flinches and better accuracy. STAB too. E-quake, again, no explanation.

Hope I helped!

Dude, are you a wizard? cos this is my Relicanth's moveset too :D
Do not question the haxorus! Bounce is weird. :P
Yup, it is, I had Bounce, but I changed it into Earthquake, powerful move you know :p
I don't Ev Train, so, yea, here's my:

Stone Edge
Aqua Tail
Double Edge
I feel like I'm a wizard now.
You are not the only one, ohh please. There's a legend, that if you're virgin till 30, you become a Wizard, I'm 18 already, just waiting for the day B)
