This is the best I can find

>+6 252+ Atk Choice Band Refrigerate Kyurem-B Helping Hand Explosion vs. -6 0 HP / 0- Def Noibat on a critical hit: 9068992-10669408 (75574933.3 - 88911733.3%) -- guaranteed OHKO

Hope I helped!

>A level 100 Shuckle can potentially deal the most damage in one single attack through the use of numerous stat boosters; by receiving the effects of Helping Hand from two allies in a triple battle, holding a Metronome, Power Trick, a Skill Swap to Pure Power, a conversion to Ice, and 6 stages of positive Attack stat changes. Also, both of Shuckle's partners must have the Ability Flower Gift and the weather must be sunny. On the 5th turn of using a Defense Curl-boosted Ice Ball (learned via Mimic) consecutively without any misses, if used against a level 1 Noibat with minimum Defense stats, that has 6 stages of negative Defense stat changes (such as from being subject to Screech 3 times), and being under the effect of Forest's Curse it can deal 721,899,685 damage with a critical hit.

Pokemon: Shuckle

  • Level 100
  • Maximum defense (all EVs and IVs with boosting nature, at +6 boosts)
  • Power Swapped (defense becomes attack, i.e about 614)
  • Rollout on the fifth turn after a Defense Curl (960 base power)
  • Critical Hit
  • Helping Hand
  • Flower Gift
  • Huge Power
  • Choice Band

Opponent: Ledyba

  • Level 1
  • Minimum defense (no EVs, 0 IVs, reducing nature, -6 boosts)

Here's the calc for how much damage we're talking about.

+6 252+ Atk Choice Band Huge Power Shuckle Helping Hand Rock Slide vs. -6 0 HP / 0- Def Ledyba on a critical hit: 76701762-90237372 (639181350 - 751978099.95%) -- guaranteed OHKO

PS.- Rollout is not an option on the calculator, so I took Rock Slide with Rollout's base power. Flower Gift is not an option on the calculator either, so I manually calculated it.

Hope I helped!

What if it didn't OHKO o3o
I don't remember putting a Focus Sash on that Ledyba :P
actually a +6 defence stays as defence when you power swap, you would want +6 attack. Also does choice band do more damage than metronome?
also if a castform used reflect type to get a typing 4x weak to rock and then guard swapped with a happiny...
I think Ice Ball on a Forest's Curse Noibat is more powerful.

I would keep it simple, and while it may not be the most possible, when you include stat level drops and items, it is the maximum without all the technical stuff.

V-create + critical hit + 4x Super effectiveness.

basically the strongest non normal type move critically hits an opponent whose types are both weak against fire.
