Necrozma @ Weakness Policy
Type : Psychic
Ability : Prism Armor
Nature : Timid ( Spe+ Atk- )
EVs : 104 Hp / 148 Spa / 252 Spe

  • Rock Polish
  • Psyshock / Stored Power
  • Dark Pulse / Flash Cannon / Power Gem
  • Brick Break

Prism Armor allows Necrozma to withstand Super Effective hits. This takes advantage of Weakness Policy, getting offensive boosts so that you can sweep. It's typing it's also not Dual which are weak to a same type, which is why he is the best suit for a Weakness Policy set. Rock Polish must be used on the first turn, no matter First or Second Necrozma moves, so that you can sweep in the following turns. Brick Break gets boosts from Weakness Policy, and hits some Pokemon like Bisharp or Weavile, breaking Relfects and Light Screens. Stored Power packs a huge punch with the boosts from Rock Polish and Weakness Policy. The others are coverages. Dark Pulse hits Aegislash, while Flash Cannon hits Diancie. Power Gem hits Talonflame and Mega Charizard Y. It's up to you who to counter. 106 Hp in EVs aid in allowing Necrozma to survive hits in the first turn. And the others are for Sweeping purposes.

Why timid. Timid is redundant. So is 252 speed. Necrozma only has 79 base speed what's the point.
You have Prism Armor to take Super effective hits, then you survive and use Rock Polish, then you start to sweep while outspeeding a lot of stuff. Speed is invested to ensure that Necrozma outspeed faster opponents.
Speed is relevant with Rock Polish, the point being that Rock Polish isn't relevant just in general with Necrozma.
it seems you enjoy speed... i can see why. i like this moveset, and the weakness policy is rarely used. its nice to see a pokemon use its ability and an item to combo like crazy.

EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SpD
Bold Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Morning Sun / Moonlight

Here's a bulky set I made, just CM with physical defense EVs. Hidden power helps to hit steel types as well as dark and psychic.

Necrozma @ Farium Z
Type: Psychic
Ability: Prism Armor
Nature: Timid (+Spe/-Atk)/Modest (+Sp.Atk/-Atk)
EVs: 252 Spe / 250 Sp.Atk / 6 Sp.Def

  • Calm Mind
  • Psychic
  • Moonlight
  • Dark Pulse/Power Gem

Calm Mind is good for raising your Sp. Atk and Sp. Def.
Psychic has good power and STAB.
Z Moonlight heals all status conditions to Necrozma, as well as healing.
Dark Pulse/Power Gem for type coverage. Both have same base power, but Dark Pulse has 20% flinch. Your choice.
