Focus Punch help?

I've had Focus Punch in my bag for ages, i haven't taught it to anyone because of it's side-effect.
Is there any pokemon or strategy that works well with Focus Punch?

Actually it can be a quite useful move when combined with substitute. First you would use substitute so that while your focusing you cant be hit and focus punch can't be messed with. If youd like adding Leftovers would be useful.

Another trick is to put a pokemon to sleep with spore. The opponent can either stay and get hit, or switch into a pokemon and get hit, but either way, you make the shot. A common trick on Breloom, who gets STAB with it.
