Natu @ Eviolite
Level: 5
Ability: Magic Bounce
EVs: 196 HP / 156 Def / 36 SpA / 76 SpD / 36 Spe
Bold Nature
- Psychic
- Roost
- Heat Wave
- Thunder Wave

Defensive Natu. Simple.

The given EVs maximize HP for more mixed bulk and hit Eviolite numbers in Natu's defensive stats, and the remaining EVs are put into Special Attack and Speed for slightly more offensive presence. A Bold nature increases Natu's Defense, which helps it take hits. Magic Bounce is why Natu has a niche in Little Cup, preventing it from being hit with Taunt, or statused, as well as bouncing back entry hazards. Finally, Eviolite is the only item that should be considered on this set, as Natu needs the bulk.

As per Generekt's suggestions, I will now answer my own question in the "Answers" section.
As the only Magic Bouncer in LC, Natu can serve a unique niche as an anti-lead as well as a support mon.

Natu @ Eviolite
Ability: Magic Bounce
Modest Nature
236 Def / 36 SpA / 236 SpD
-Reflect
-Light Screen
-Giga Drain
-Tailwind / Wish / Haze / (insert filler move here)

No rocks here, ahahaha! Reflect lets you take at least a couple of Rock Blasts, Light Screen is standard with Reflect, Giga Drain lets you hit Dwebble and Onix, two common leads, super effectively, and your choice of the last move.

EDIT: The great Natu forces a forfeit on the 4th turn. http://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/lc-204943369

Oh, and here's a sweep. http://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/lc-204984167
