Why not Superpower instead of rock slide because that deals with Ice and Rock type or superpower instead of tailwind....no....? Your the master Trachy!

As always I will post a VGC 2017 set:

Braviary @ Life Orb
Ability: Defiant
Level: 50
EVs: 228 HP / 92 Atk / 4 Def / 156 SpD / 28 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Brave Bird
- Return
- Tailwind
- Protect

this set is bulky enough to resist a life orb tapu koko's thunderbolt without electric terrain, it is used to set tailwind. Those ev in attack are for ko 100% of the time bulky tapu bulu, over the 62% chance to OHKO non invested tapu lele.

Maybe this works in game (GEN VI):

Braviary @Leftovers (or Life Orb?)
Trait: Defiant
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 HP / 4 Spd
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Brave Bird (STAB, good damage and the recoil problem can be solved with Roost)
- Superpower (coverage)
- Bulk Up (will be a tank after some and is great with Superpower)
- Roost (after Bulk Up and with a good HP, this can be very useful)

I guess Braviary can be a great Pokémon in game, easy to find and breed, awsome attack and great hp, speed isn't that bad, but if he can't outspeed, he can 'tank'.

Wargle (Braviary) (M) @ Leftovers

Trait: Sheer Force
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 SDef
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Bulk Up
- Brave Bird
- Rock Slide
- Shadow Claw

Note-only for NU battling environment only

This guy worked surprisingly well as a physical tank. Bulk up is for earning the title of "tank", brave bird is STAB backed by good HP and leftovers, Rock Slide and shadow claw is good coverage. Adamant is to make him ridiculously powerful. 252 EVs in HP give him great bulk for a bird paired in with Bulk up.

Braviary (M) @ Sharp beak
Trait: Sheer Force
EVs: 116 HP / 252 Atk / 140 Spd
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)

Brave bird
Fly
Superpower
Crush claw

This is a pretty good move set.Especially if it used a flying type move it will be boosted by sharp beak.Superpower for coverage against ice and rock.Crush claw is for stab.

by
Fly is way too predictable. Having 2 strong flying moves is overkill also.
Superpower isn't as useful as you'd think if it's not paired with Bulk Up or another move that can power up the lost stats. Otherwise, You'll have to switch out once you use Superpower. It weakens both Attack and Defense, Braviary's best stats.
Great moveset :)

Pokémon: Braviary(M)@Leftovers
Trait: Any
EVs:252 Atk / 252 Sp.Def
Jolly Nature (+Speed,-Sp.Atk)

-Crush Claw/Return, I prefer Crush Claw though for the chance of Def. Drop
-Brave Bird
-Bulk Up
-U Turn

I'm sure a lot of you think this is bad, but it's not...trust me.
+Sp.Def because he's weak to Thunderbolt/Thunder,
Then Bulk Up lets you make up for Defense, while the
Jolly nature makes you move first for Bulk Up......
Let's say you run into a rock type user(Moves)
You wan't to use Bulk Up first right?
Also Leftovers gives you Health as you sweep.

Here is a strong member of my shiny team
[email protected]
Ability:Defiant(gives him more attack if his stats are lowered which is cool)
Nature:adamant
EVs:252 attack 252 speed 4 hp
•Brave Bird:STAB, and his name is Braviary so he should totally have this move.
•Bulk up:make him hit harder and take more hits
•Thrash:STAB, and basically a normal type outrage.
•Whirlwind:Can ruin a Pokemon’s stat changes and can get rid of Pokémon you do not want to fight.

thrash isn't good when you have way better normal stabs in double edge or return if it isnt gen 8. whirlwind isn't good on it, as braviary isn't a good mon for phazing

[email protected] Orb
Trait: Defiant
Nature: Adamant
EVs: 252 Attack, 252 Speed, 4 HP
Role: Physical Sweeper

Moves:

Crush Claw or Thrash: Both are STAB. Crush Claw for 50% chance of lowering the opponents Defense, and thrash for high power, but becoming confused after 2-3 turns. I would go with Crush Claw.
Brave Bird: STAB, high power
Close Combat: High power, covers Ice and Rock weakness, but lowers Defense and Sp. Defense each by one stage. Although Defiant raises Attack by two stages because of this.
Iron Head: Covers Fairy (and Rock + Ice, but they're already covered by Close Combat). It has a 30% Flinch chance.

Gen 8 RU
Braviary (M) @ Leftovers
Ability: Defiant
EVs: 236 HP / 136 SpD / 136 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Brave Bird
- Close Combat
- Bulk Up
- Roost

Brave Bird is strong STAB. Close Combat is for Rock and Ice types. Bulk Up is to raise your attack and defense stats. Roost is to heal off damage.
