Pyukumuku @ Leftovers

Ability: Unaware
EVs: 252 Def, 252 Sp. Def, 4 HP
Nature: Impish (+Def, -SAtk)
Moves:

  • Toxic
  • Soak
  • Recover
  • Haze/Baton Pass/Curse/Counter

Pyukumuku is an extremely interesting Pokemon as it gets no directly damaging moves, but actually has a fairly wide array of status moves (unlike Wobbuffet). Its main gimmick is being able to Toxic stall Poison and Steel types. To do this, use Soak to turn them into a Water type, and then they can be poisoned using Toxic. Recover lets you Toxic stall indefinitely. This set has also been designed to stop setup sweepers in their tracks. The ability Unaware means that it doesn't matter how many boosts they have, they still won't do extra damage. You can then use Haze to get rid of those boosts to help the rest of your party. Haze can be replaced for any of the other moves it gets, like Baton Pass or Curse. Even Counter can work here.

Pyukumuku is also a Taunt fodder since it gets no physical or special moves.

Pyukumuku @ Leftovers
Ability: Innards Out
Evs: 252 SpD / 252 Hp / 4 F2f
Careful Nature (+SpD, -SpA)

  • Toxic
  • Soak
  • Curse
  • Recover

Explanation: Pyukumuku is a Staller with a nice Niche. I choose Innards Out as the ability over Unaware because it's just in case you Encounter a Mon that has Chip Away, Sacred Sword or Darkest Lariat but Unaware can work too. Leftovers are for longevity. Toxic Badly Poisons your foe. Soak turns the Steel types that wall this Set into Water type so Toxic can have effect. Curse boosts Attack and Defense but also lowers Speed. Recover restores its Hp in a Pinch.

I find it interesting that nobody posted the Psych Up - Baton Pass set yet, it's been on YouTube for a while and I think it's brilliant, hilarious and very gimmicky.

Pyukumuku


Pyukumuku @ Normalium Z / Leftovers

Ability: Unaware
Nature: Careful (-Sp Att, +Sp Def)
EVs: 252 HP / 228 Def / 28 Sp Def

  • Psych Up
  • Baton Pass
  • Recover
  • Swagger/Toxic

With Unaware, Pyukumuku can be set up on and it wouldn't even affect it. With those monstrous defenses and access to Recover, it will not faint easily. Psych Up is to steal all of the stat boosts the opponent has given themselves, and Baton Pass gives those boosts to somebody else on your team. Swagger is perfect for this set, and the added effect of confusion is definitely nice. This way, all four moves are normal type, meaning that the Z crystal can be used on any of the moves, depending on which added effect is needed. Z Baton Pass, Z Recover and Z Swagger all reset the user's lowered stats and keep boosts intact while Z Psych Up restores health. Alternatively, Swagger can be replaced with Toxic, to poison stall with Recover.


Strenghts
Ideal to wall most set-up sweepers in general.
This EV investment lets it survive a couple of Energy Balls from Manaphy.
Weaknesses
Taunt users in general render Pyukumuku useless.
Poison also hurts it unfortunately.

Nature and Ability matters. Add that please. Also you still have 4 EVs left.
Y not use eviolite
Because Pyukumuku has no evolution so there's no point.
