Florges@Kee Berry
Ability: Flower Veil
Nature: Bold
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 Sp Def
-Aromatherapy
-Calm Mind
-Mooblast
-Wish
Using a Kee berry could be more useful than Leftovers against physical attackers(Calm Mind and a high Special Defense stat should be enough to weather any special attacks.) Aromatherapy allows you to setup Calm Mind boosts while also not fearing status(Except Sleep, of course.) Moonblast is a great STAB move, with nothing being immune to Fairy type moves. Lastly, Wish provides much needed healing, as well as making Florges an even better team supporter. Leftovers are another option for Florges.

YES!!! This is the exact same moveset I use on Florges, and it wreaks havoc. I've sweeped whole teams with this beast. Only difference is that I use a 240 HP / 252 DEF / 16 SP DEF EV spread.
That's probably a better idea, I'll change my EV spread a little.
This is a great moveset for Florges, although I would use Calm Mind instead of Aromatherapy. That's what mine has.
You want to use Calm Mind for two moveslots?
Sorry, I meant Protect so you can let Wish activate. Although, I guess if you fear status problems keeping Aromatherapy would be fine.
Leftovers is probably a better item if you use Protect instead of Aromatherapy.
Would calm or relaxed work alright too?
Relaxed isn't very good. It won't cause too much trouble, as Florges isn't inherently fast, and it even reduces damage received from Gyro Ball a little. However, you miss out on outspeeding several walls, and you want an attack-lowering nature to reduce confusion damage somewhat. A Calm nature, on the other hand, works fine.

Florges (F) @ Choice Scarf
Ability: Flower Veil
Evs: 6 Def, 252 Sp. Atk, 252 Speed
Nature: Modest (+Sp. Atk, -Atk)
- Moonblast
- HP Ground
- Energy Ball/Grass Knot/Petal Dance
- Psychic
Really wish this thing was Fairy/Grass. Moonblast is powerful STAB. HP Ground covers your Steel and Poison weaknesses, plus Fire, which Fairy and Grass aren't Super-Effective against. Pick one of the 3 Grass moves as coverage. I'd personally go with Energy Ball, since Grass Knot is only useful against heavy Pokémon and although Petal dance is powerful and you'll be locked into no matter what, your opponent could easily switch out to a Pokémon with Sap Sipper which could end up screwing you badly. Psychic is for hitting Poison-types with an Air balloon.

Why Grass/Fairy? It would have 5 weaknesses instead of 2 if that happened.
I know, it just feels like it would make sense to me.

Florges
Nature: Bold (+Def, -Atk)
Item: Sitrus Berry/Rocky Helmet
- Moonblast
- Calm Mind
- Energy Ball
- Psychic
I use this set for my Florges and it provides the best coverage and can make it pretty hard to handle for your opponent. EVs in Def and Satk is the best for this set, or in Def and Hp if you prefer.

why not wish instead of calm mind?

Florges (F) @ Leftovers
Ability: Flower Veil
Nature: Calm (+ Special Defence, - Attack)
EV's: 252 HP, 252 Special Defence, 4 Special Attack
Role: Support
Moves:

Wish
Protect
Moonblast
Aromatherapy

Wish is for recovery and can be used to heal your team. Protect is to gain HP back from Leftovers and to protect yourself while waiting for your Wish support. Moonblast is STAB and is there mainly to take care of Dragon types since Florges is immune to Dragon type moves since it is a Fairy type. Finally Aromatherapy is to heal yourself and your team mates of any Status Problems.

There are alternative moves I could of given Florges such as Psychic to take care of Poison types or Toxic to badly poison opponents. But I was unable to fit Psychic into my move set. The reason I decided not to use Toxic however is because your two weaknesses are Poison and Steel types both of which are immune to Toxic so your opponent can simply anticipate your move and switch in to a Poison or Steel type to resist it.

-wish
-misty terrain
-aromatherapy
-moonblast-dazzling gleam

Wish for restoring HP, misty terrain for extra power for moonblastand and for nature power if you learndet it by an Pokemon in that battle, nature power is then moonblast I prefer this strategy in an double battle, aromatherapy for healing any status condition and moonblast for attacking of dazzling gleam for an double or triple battle to hit all the opponent Pokemon.

Florges @ Assault Vest
florges
Ability: Flower Veil
EVs: 252 HP / 252 SpA / 4 SpD
Modest Nature
- Moonblast
- Psychic
- Energy Ball
- Hidden Power [Water]/ HP Fire

Taking a look at Florges' stats, base 112 SpA and its famous 154 SpDef make it a great AV candidate with it's typing. While the movepool of Florges is rather shallow, you can already get a nice amount of coverage with what it has as only the Ferrothorn family would resist. This also has a pretty large surprise factor too.

Calm Mind Florges

Ability: Flower Veil
EVs: 252 HP, 252 Def, 4 SpA
Nature: Bold
Item: Leftovers

Calm Mind is used to boost its Special Attack and Special Defence to great levels.
Moonblast is STAB and hurts Dragon, Dark and Fighting types.
Psychic hurts Poison types after a few boosts. Hidden Power Ground can be used over Psychic to still hurt Poison types as well as the Fire and Steel types that resist Moonblast as well as hurting Rock and Electric types.
Synthesis is a new toy that Florges received through the ORAS move tutors and heals health its health instantly. Wish can be used to also store health but after two turns.

It is best to use this Florges with something that has Heal Bell or Aromatherapy like Blissey.

Florges
Nature: Modest
Ability: Flower Veil
Item: Mental Herb/ Lum Berry
Evs: 154Hp/ 180 Def/ 88 SpAtk/ 88 SpDef
Moveset
Wish / Nature Power
Misty Terrain / Grassy Terrain

Florges is a beutiful Pokemon, and one of the premier Fairy types from Gen 6. This particular Florges set takes advantage of some of the new mechanics that came with Gen 6. Using a combination of Misty Terrain and Grassy Terrain, you change the effect of what Nature Power will do; if the area is Grassy, you use Energy Ball. This can be useful for taking out Water, Rock, and Ground types that want to deal physical damage to Florges. If the area is Misty, you use Florges' signature Moonblast, which will be her STAB attack as well as deal great damage to those weak to the Fairy force. Each one of these moves receives a 50% base power up from their respective Terrain, as well as providing support for your team. Grassy Terrain will heal 1/16th of grounded Pokemon's HP, while Misty Terrain creates an area where status conditions are nullified. Wish is a great utility move that will keep Florges healthy while she sets up Terrains. You could also run Calm Mind in place of Wish, but I prefer the latter for the support it can provide for the team.

This is a great set that makes use of two of the best options for Florges to attack with, as well as providing a max benefit for your team. However, as with any moveset, it has it's drawbacks. Fire types, Taunt, and standard Fairy weakness can scare this Florges out, but when all of Florges checks and counters have been dealt with, you'll have quite the utility with this set.
