My Weavile is not a good attacker... I've tried everything, so I decided to make him a threat in a different way. Any ideas on the set up? I usually use substitute then swagger. And I have night slash and ice shard as my other moves

weavile is too frail to set up

How is your Weavile not a good attacker? Even with 0 attack IVs, it still has an incredibly high attack.

Weavile has no defences to use a move like Swagger. If the other Pokemon is confused, it will most likely knock Weavile out.

If this is in-game, train your Weavile to a higher level and it'll cope.
If this is competitive, breed another Weavile. Weavile is not suitable to use status moves, and should be a full out attcker.
