Magearna @ Fairium Z
Type : Steel / Fairy
Ability: Soul-Heart
Nature : Modest ( Spa+ Atk- )
EVs: 252 Hp / 4 Atk / 252 Spa

  • Explosion
  • Shift Gear
  • Flash Cannon / Trick Room
  • Fleur Cannon

She works great in Singles and Doubles. Shift Gear is needed to boost Explosion and also speed so that it can outspeed majority of the attackers and Scarfers. Trick Room works great in doubles. Use Shift Gear at least 2 or 3 times, then when at Low Hp, use Explosion, BOOM. With the boost from Shift Gear, it's guaranteed to OHKO types that does not resist normal. Fleur Cannon has great power with STAB. And when paired with Fairium Z, it's deadly and also guaranteed to OHKO types that does not resist fairy. It lowers Sp. Atk by 2 stages though, but Soul Heart makes up for that. Flash Cannon is also STAB, and has chances to lower target's Sp. Def, which can really help you out.

You could swap out Volt Switch for Shadow Ball just on the off chance someone (nooby) uses Shedinja for total (501 super-effective, 407 neutral) coverage.
Volt Switch is literally so much more useful to keep up momentum and bring in frail teammates. If you really want Shadow Ball replace Aura Sphere instead.

This is my first answer I'm posting, so be nice please.

okay Dubbles Magearna @ psychium Z
Type: Steel / Fairy
Ability: Soul-Heart
Nature: Modest (Spa+ Atk -)
EVs: 252 Hp / 252 Spa / Spe

  • Fleur Cannon (Stab)
  • Flash Cannon (Stab)
  • Aura Sphere/Shift Gear (coverage/speed/or any other move you like.)
  • Heart Swap

Have a Pokemon set up some stat and a Focus Energy use Heart Swap to get rid of any bad you may gotten.
Because at 4 you always crit and you start at one the Focus Energy gives +2 and Z Heart Swap gives +1. So because crits ignore attack drops you can now use Fleur Cannon to your hearts content.
Have fun and let me know if you think it's a good set or what should be changed.
