This is my Malamar for my Psychic Gym Team for several facebook groups.
It works extremely well in ou as a all rounded tank if you balance out the rest of your team. (I.E. Gardevoir-mega, Gallade, metagross, espeon, delphox(oras) of which have been extensively tested and adjusted accordingly)
The usual strategy is (remember be smart and observe your opponent's team. If its a mostly fast team send out Cthulhu first.): Trick room (unless the opposing Pokemon is slower than you are, which would be hard to do. Otherwise Superpower) -> superpower(times 8 if possible) -> (insert night slash/psycho cut for alternate typing advantage/neutral damage against: fairy, flying, etc.) -> trick room again -> if fainted switch to the next slowest (unless trick room has run out, in that case play fastest.(in my case espeon/gardevoir-mega.)) -> ??? -> Victory? -> Profits.
This build, on several occasions. Has swept entire OU teams, while being the only Pokemon sent out. (Here is a pretty decent example, although not a full ou team: 45eg-wwww-ww4d-gq8z)
As you can see, this is a hit first talk later kind of tank. A pretty good one at that too. (Unless prepared for it) Good thing leftovers saves it a bit.
