Im going in order
While good to complete this, please don't go through the whole thing, as little cup movesets aren't as popular. If someone wants it, they'll ask.
This is what I am using:

Ekans@Eviolite
Ability: Shed Skin

Coil- Boost Attack and Defense.

Earthquake -...

Rock Slide- ...

Rest- Shed Skin cures you earlier than usual.

This can be a 6-0 pokemon it has happened.

Ekans (M) @ Black Sludge
Trait: Intimidate
EVs: 112 HP / 252 Atk / 144 SDef
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Earthquake
- Rock Slide
- Coil
- Glare

Edit: The first move-set I had sucks. Intimidate helps with defensive ability and allows Ekans to set up with Coil / Glare. Glare slows the opponent down, while Coil is Bulk Up + Accuracy boost. Earthquake has a 5 type coverage, and Rock Slide hits flyers, as well as has the Para-Flinch hax possibility. No Stab, mainly because poison sucks as a type for coverage. EVs give this thing some defensive bulk, and max attack to be exploited with Coil.

Hey Heinz, I'd like to point out that Ev's are different in little cup, and sometimes pokemon can max out a stat without using all 252 Ev's in it.

To easily fix this, as I see you export from PO, Just check the Ev's from level 5 and check down by 4's from 252, Or just say what stats,

Example: EV's: HP / Atk / SDef
Cool, thanks. As I said, I don't play Little Cup, so I didn't know that. Much appreciated.
I learned it the hard way xD

But no problem.
a little cup tank!
