Mine knows:

Knock Off: Gets rid of the foe's item.

Recover: Reliable recovery move.

Psychic: STAB, good power, high accuracy, chance to lower Sp. Def.

Signal Beam: Used to deal with Dark and other Psychic types.

Maybe Shadow Ball instead of Knock off. Its a pretty good move, much better tan knock off

Chimecho (M) @ Life Orb

Trait: Levitate

EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SpA

IVs: 2 Spe

Quiet Nature (+SpA, -Spe)

  • Trick Room
  • Psychic
  • Shadow Ball
  • Hidden Power Fighting

Trick Room supports Chimecho itself and slow teammates.
Psychic is reliable STAB with good power.
Shadow Ball compliments Psychic and Hidden Power Fighting by hitting Psychic and Ghost types.
Hidden Power Fighting patches up the coverage by hitting Dark and Steel types.

Heal Bell- Helps out your team, might as well have him do something.

Thunder Wave/Toxic- Lay on some status and get in some help that way.

Reflect-Set up for partners.

Light Screen More setting up.

another option would be to pair this with recover and use him as a stall for teammates and what not, but that can be done with just about any other pokemon. Most stuff is just going to go for the kill since he's so pitiful, so not too worried about taunt.

Suggested Nature: Bold
Suggested item: Leftovers
