Tried out this trolly set, fun to use:

Whimsicott @ Rocky Helmet
Ability: Prankster
Nature: Bold/Calm
EVs: 252 HP, 252 Def, 4 S.Atk

Cotton Guard
Encore
Leech Seed
Giga Drain
Caution: Expect rage quits.

For use after the removal of poison types and maybe special sweepers. Come in on a setup mon (sweeper or defensive, doesn't matter), use encore, set up cotton guard and leech seed, and annoy your opponent.

Whimsicott (F) @ Choice Specs
Ability: Infiltrator
Evs: 6 Def, 252 Sp.Atk, 252 Spd
Nature: Modest (+Sp.Atk,-Atk)
- Energy Ball
- Moonblast
- Hurricane
- Shadow Ball

Timid can be used instead of Modest. Anyways, not much to explain here. Energy Ball & Moonblast are STAB, while Hurricane & Shadow Ball are coverage. Infiltrator hits through Substitute & Screens.

Nice speed and decent defense, overall a nice competitive Pokémon!

Ability: Infiltrator? (I don't really use substitute Whimsicott so the ability doesn't really matter.)
IVs: (I'm not going to be exact cuz I'm lazy. Just make it around 250 Def./250 Sp. Def/10 Spd

Moves:
Encore
Good for Pokémon who set up and restore HP. Imagine using that on a recover Mewtwo. Gives you lots of time to setup, (Leech Seed, Cotton Guard, etc.) I did it on a Deoxys once! :D

Leech Seed
Nice recovery system/damaging system. Getting a burn in there somewhere is perfect.

Moonblast
I think stab? Correct me if I'm wrong! Nice power, (95) And good for another way of damage. A 30% chance of lowering Sp.Attack is nice too!

Cotton Guard/Protect
Just good setup moves.

This is my Whimsicott.

Whimsicott [M] @Big Root
Ability: Prankster
[Move Set]

Giga Drain- Heals more HP with the Big Root attatched.

Toxic- Slowly helps wear down the foe.

Leech Seed- Also help wear down the foe while also healing.

Calm Mind- Raises Def. and Sp Def.

[Strategy]

I like to start out with a Leech Seed, So I can get health back every turn.
Then I raise my def. and sp. def. with Calm Mind, making it harder to deal damage on Whimsicott.
I then use toxic, poisonning my foe, also the poison deals more damage every turn.
Then I continue giga drainning, getting a lot of health back every turn.

[Note]
I replaced calm mind with Twister, I have a Mew with my baton pass strategy.

Whimsicott @Leftovers
Nature:Quiet
Evs:252HP, 252 Sp. Attack 4 Defense
Ability: Prankster
1. Leech Seed: with a toxic spikes lead you can have a lot of fun
2. Substitute: with leftovers and leech seed you gain back the health pretty quick
3. Protect: further time to regain HP if you can't set up leech seed
4. Nature Power: because it is a status move it gets priority, really good for taking out the last little bit of the enemy's health

Whimsicott Prankster Set

ABILITY: Prankster
EVS: 252 HP; 252 SPDEF; 4 DEF
Nature: Bold/Calm
Item: Leftovers

Moves:
Encore - Really good to deal with set-up Pokémon.
Taunt- Goes well with encore, if you can encore a Pokémon that is setting up, they can be taunted and stuck using struggle. Both moves work very well with this Pokémon and its Prankster ability.
Cotton Guard - This gives Whimsicott a lot of defense, and also takes advantage of Prankster.
Toxic/Moonblast/Giga Drain - Toxic can also take advantage of Prankster, and allows to stall opponents. Moonblast and Giga Drain are good STAB moves to take down opponents, each has its advantages. Giga Drain allows Whimsicott to heal a bit, while Moonblast is stronger and has a chance to lower special attack. Moonblast can also get rid of any dark types that are immune to Whimsicott's Prankster ability.

*keep in mind that prankster does not work on dark types, however what dark type wants to go into a fairy type?

A Pokemon that would be horrible if it wasn't for Mischeivous Heart, meaning it is now just bad (which is better than horrible.)

Ability: Mischeivous Heart

EVs: Sp Attack, Sp Def, Def Nature: Bold

Encore: Perfect. Perfect. Just perfect.

Giga Drain: Damage combined with healing.

Hidden Power Rock: I'm going to start suggesting this now. I've found out how to get it the way I want easily. I am so happy.

Psychic: Deals with Poison types.
