I would use this:

Toucannon @ Expert Belt
Ability: Skill Link
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spe / 4 SpD
Jolly Nature
- 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)

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.
OH NO I FORGOT TOUCANNON WAS A NORMAL AND FLYING! my bad, haha, sorry.
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
Call me crazy, but Im just worried about a speed trained toucannon's viability in general tankiness; that I fear roost would be wasted. Im not sure about feather dance either. I feel like banking those points outside of either defense secures you an average of 1-3 turns of field time. Given the ability and typing I'd personally go with fury attack instead of boomburst. It plays with skill link and gets normal STAB.

Physical Toucannon

Toucannon @ Expert Belt
Ability: Skill Link
EVs: 144 HP / 252 Atk / 56 Def / 56 SpD
Adamant Nature
- Beak Blast
- Bullet Seed
- Rock Smash
- Knock Off

Beak Blast has good accuracy + good Base Power + STAB, it does have to "charge" to be used but Toucannon is already moving last with his very low Base Speed so no worries (that's why I invested some general bulk in my set). Bullet Seed makes use of his Skill Link Ability and deals with some of his menaces. Rock Smash is a Fighting move and Fighting Moves cover a good chunk of types. Knock Off will almost always deal 1.5x damage and deals with Psychic and Dark types.

It's another one off my "all-rounder" sets, covers his weaknesses and a little more, very offensive, nothing really special about it.

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

Toucannon @ Choice Specs
Ability: Sheer Force
EVs: 252 SpA / 252 Spe / 4 SpD
Modest Nature
- Boomburst
- Overheat
- Flash Cannon
- U-turn / Hidden Power [Grass]

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.

I'd normally go with this set:

Toucannon @ Leftovers
Ability: Skill Link
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Flame Charge (to speed it up it is quite slow even with jolly max speed)
- Rock Blast (good coverage and hits 5 times due to skill link so good power)
- Bullet Seed (same as Rock Blast)
- Beak Blast (STAB and potential burns) or Gunk Shot (coverage) or Drill Peck (STAB)

Toucannon @ Focus Sash
Ability: Skill Link
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spe / 4 HP
Nature: Adamant / Jolly
- Fly
- Flame Charge
-Rock Blast
- Bullet Seed

Focus Sash won't let you die. First use Flame Charge to gain Speed, with Rock Blast with Skill Link to cover Ice types, or Bullet Seed for Rock types.

Can we have a Keen Eye moveset, please?

Toucannon @ Flyinium Z
Ability: Keen Eye
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 HP / 4 Def
Adamant Nature
- Brick Break
- Beak Blast
- Roost
- Rock Slide / Steel Wing / U-Turn (power/coverage/switch out)

No Speed EVs just to beat Avalanche users (who I have never come across)

Avalanche has negative priority.

This moveset sweeps some teams so I hope you like it.

Toucannon @ Firium Z
Ability: Skill Link
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spe / 4 SpD
Jolly Nature
- Beak Blast
- Rock Blast
- Bullet Seed
- Flame Charge (Raises Speed which is good for Toucannon, because it's slow and also will be a way to counter Steel types)

Why are you running a mixed Set? You already have a lot of good physical multi hitting moves. Also why rash? If you insint on a mixed Set, just run a speed lowering nature. Also, you shouldn't run max attack and special attack. Just one, and use those 4 extra evs for the other one

Gen 7 ZU
Toucannon
Toucannon @ Life Orb
Ability: Keen Eye
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Brave Bird
- Return / Brick Break
- Flame Charge
- Swords Dance

Brave Bird is strong STAB. You can run Return for a nuetral STAB move, or Brick Break to deal with rock, steel, and ice types. Flame Charge does damage and boosts your speed. Swords Dance boosts your attack.

Why would you use Smack Down? Why is there no STAB?
