Vivillon @ Choice Specs:
Trait: Compoundeyes
EV: 252 Sp.Atk / 252 Speed / 4 HP
Modest Nature

  • Hurricane
  • Bug Buzz
  • Draining Kiss
  • Energy Ball

Full Power ! Attention: Use this in doubles with Tailwind support. 2 STAB: Hurricane and Bug Buzz for the win! Draining Kiss can make up about SR damage and overall is not bad, while Energy Ball is coverage purpose.

I think a good moveset for Vivillon would be:
1. Infestation
2. Protect
3. Energy Ball
4. Hurricane
@ elijah.gordon7174
In my honest opinion, switching out Protect for Draining Kiss would do a bit more damage.  Infestation + Draining Kiss, with be the best to go with your move set. Not trying to be rude or anything.

Vivillon @ Leftovers
Ability: Compoundeyes
EVs: 252 Sp. Atk, 252 Speed, 4 HP
Nature: Timid
-Sleep Powder
-Quiver Dance
-HP Ground

NU. Good alternative to Butterfree. Stats aren't that much different either, but better movepool (though Butterfree's might have improved, we don't know yet).

Now this is a rare set to use, but with sub, it can set up on much more

Vivillion @ Leftovers
Ability: Compoundeyes
EVs: 4 HP/ 252 SpA/ 252 spe
Modest Nature
- Substitute
- Quiver Dance
- Sleep Powder
- Bug Buzz

Once you eliminate checks, this thing is incredibly hard to counter. If this was in gen 5 RU, think of what it can set up on. Slowking, Tangrowth, etc. Sub makes it much better.

Everyone is like

Must have Bug Buzz and Hurricane.

Anyways, Vivillon was my main team member in the games. I. freaking. love her. She gets raped by stealth rock, which is her downfall.

Lead Cannon (Vivillon) @ Leftovers
Ability: Compound Eyes
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SpA
Modest Nature

  • Sleep Powder
  • Roost
  • Quiver Dance
  • Bug Buzz

Or Strongerthanglass-cannon. This is a bulky Vivillon. Wtsf. Yeah.
I decided that I wanted a Vivillon that could actually be able to use the niche it has. Using low accuracy moves to start setting up. The problem with this gal is she is so frail that setting up doesn't work out well. That's why I ran this investment; she doesn't need the evs in QD boosted stats. Do not use this as a lead, do not use this to hard switch. Use it to sack, or go all out.

Sleep Powder is boosted by Compound Eyes and Vivillon isn't slow. It gives you at least one free turn. Start QDing up. Be aggressive, don't fear a wake up. Lefties will keep you at enough health. Bug Buzz at +6 will OHKO most unresisted and hit everything like a truck. Once you take a hit that doesn't ohko, roost.

It is very easy to be taken down with this. I would not recommend it for HO. She needs support from team members, but she can still hold her ground against para at +6 sdef.

Vivuvu (Vivillon) @ Choice Specs
Ability: Compound Eyes
EVs: 252 SpA / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
- Bug Buzz
- Giga Drain
- Hurricane
- Hidden Power [Water]

Just a specs set for Vivillon. I tested it out and it deals enough damage. Also, The only Pokémon that resists all of it's moves is Dialga, Which is pretty cool since it means You'll be neutral effective on basically everything.

Vivillon @ Focus Sash/Choice Scarf
Ability: Compound Eyes
Nature: Jolly
EVs: 252 Speed, 252 Sp.Atk, 4 HP

Sleep Powder/Draining Kiss
Quiver Dance/Energy Ball
Bug Buzz

First set/second set. SleepDance combo works like an average Smeargle (Spore/Quiver Dance), with the exception of this set attacks after 1 Quiver Dance.
Second set works like a regular scarf set. If this guy comes in with low HP, he'll need to OHKO or use Draining Kiss to keep health up. He really needs a rapid spinner/defogger to help him, as he has a 4X weakness to SR.

Vivillion @ Life Orb/ Focus Sash
Ability: Compound Eyes
Nature: Modest
Ev: 252 Sp Att 252 Speed 4 HP

  • Quiver Dance
  • Hurricane
  • Bug Buzz
  • Sleep Powder

Drop the Sleep Powder first to draw to sleep then get as many Quiver Dances (Raises Sp Att, Sp Def, & Speed) up as possible one is needed but if you wanna get greedy go for 2. 3 is too many and most likely will wake up by then so 2 is more than enough. Then start sweeping with STAB Hurricane and/or Bug Buzz. Hope I helped!

Vivian (Vivillon) @ Wise Glasses
Ability: Compound Eyes
Evs: 252 special attack, 252 speed, 4 hp
Ivs: special attack and speed
Nature: modest
Hp (ground) [good vs steel, rock, fire, and electric]
Hurricane [Stab, Compound eyes increases accuracy, rain support optional]
Powder [her signature, priority move, made purely to troll fire-types with a limited movepool ie: flareon & heatmor]
Bug buzz/draining kiss/energy ball/roost/quiver dance/calm mind/light screen/safeguard, ect.

The fourth move slot is very manuverable between coverage, support, and setting up.
