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

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).

Item: Wiseglasses
Ability: Compound eyes

Hidden Power Ground
Sleep Powder

This works really well. Powder explodes and damages when the target uses a fire type attack, and even stops them from using the move altogether, and is an increased priority move. Hurricane is STAB and works well with Compound Eyes. Hidden Power Ground gives it incredible coverage against five types and four of those Vivillon is weak to. Sleep Powder is for crippling opponents and getting a couple free hits, and also works well with its ability.
I hope this was useful and works for you. Thank you.

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.
