I would use this:

Toucannon @ Expert Belt
Ability: Skill Link
EVs: 252 Atk, 252 Spe, 4 SpD
Nature: Jolly
-Beak Blast (STAB)
-Rock Blast (Ice Coverage and good with Skill Link)
-Bullet Seed (Rock Coverage and good with Skill link)
-Roost/Feather Dance/Boomburst (STAB)

answered by
Boomburst is a SPECIAL move, and a normal type move, no STAB, You should fix that, but nice moveset.
I know that boomburst is a special move, it was just an option, but toucannon IS a NORMAL type so boomburst does have STAB.
But why add Boomburst as a option if it has JOLLY nature?.
Jolly does +Speed and -Sp.Atk
Ik, but you whould normaly go with roost but if you REALY wanted to you could run boomburst.
eh, okay, I was just curious, have a nice night/day.

*ur moveset is still good so ill upvote it, besides the boomburst but its still good.*
Thx Decidueye

Why not beak blast?
Because it's weaker? Because it has -3 Priority and this is primarily a sweeping set? Because it only Burns if the opponent if they make direct contact?
Toucannon is very slow, and I don't think that it can survive any hit without investment.
There's a reason we have Sticky Web.  :P

That and it's still decently fast, at least compared to most other Gen 7 Pokemon.
I still think you should use beak blast, because it would be realy good is you go a burn off and brave bird damages you... just a thought
You can use Beak Blast if you want. Your Toucannon will die because this is a sweeping set, but hey, you might Burn a Physical attacker.

Special Toucannon
Item- Choice Specs
Ability- Sheer Force
Nature- Modest
EVs- 252SpA/252Spe/4SpD

Even though its special attack is low in comparison to its physical attack, it can still be an effective Specs attacker with these moves;
Boomburst- STAB + 140 BP + Specs is going to be dealing major damage
Overheat- Very strong fire type move that can punish Ice and Steel switch ins
Flash Cannon- Takes advantage of the boost by Sheer Force, punishes Rock switch ins
U-Turn/Hidden Power Grass- U-Turn for momentum/scouting, Hidden Power Grass for Ground and Water types.

I suggest putting the nature, ev's and ivs first and THEN the Moveset, it would be easier to read it.

This toucannon is pretty different from what other people use...And interesting.. I guess..??

Pokemon: Toucannon
Item: @Leftovers
Ability: Skill Link
Nature: Adamant (+Atk & -Sp.Atk)
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 HP / 4 Sp.Defense


-Beak Blast: Great power, STAB move and Burns the opponent.

-Bullet Seed: This goes GREAT with skill link, and covers rock, also takes out ground and water types.

-Rock Blast: Covers ice types, and takes out flying types, bug types and fire types, plus it goes great with the skill link ability.

Swords Dance/Roost: swords dance to raise your Attack sharply!, Roost to heal up!.

So, you may be asking, Why leftovers? why ev train on Sp.Def? why HP?

Well, since toucannon is slow as heck, maybe let is tank some hits at least?, you can set up a swords dance with this so you can get that nice, sweet attack boost...
Leftovers COULD help with this aswell,

This moveset might not be the best moveset, but I did what I could >_>...

ill take any criticism with this moveset and what I can do to improve it.

I would go with

Beak Blast (for stab, high damage and chance of burning)
Brick Break(for super effectiveness against 5 types)
Toxic(B1F: Docks, in the southwest corner of the area, after passing Nanu's grand trial)
Bullet Seed(skill link is cool)

With 'Skill Link' and Flynium Z

These sets aren't necessarily Competitive movesets btw. You still need natures, items and EVs and all that but ingame movesets are perfectly fine.  Btw if you don't know your EVs, then just write the ideal EVs. I.e if you could choose exactly what EVs your set uses what would they be? Same with the nature.
PX? Why won't you let people know that I have gotten pretty crabby because of other Pokebase people.
Keeping the discussion civil and keeping everything tidy.
Takes siestas + hardy sorry I forgot
Don't need the characteristic, we need the EVs
