The only two moves that have a perfect critical hit ratio are Frost Breath and Storm Throw, which are not learned by any Pokemon with the Sniper ability.

So instead, I'll list Sniper Pokemon that can learn moves with a high critical hit ratio (in Sun and Moon):

Binacle & Barbaracle

  • Cross Chop
  • Night Slash
  • Shadow Claw
  • Stone Edge

Spinarak & Ariados

  • Cross Poison (Spinarak only)
  • Night Slash

Skorupi & Drapion

  • Cross Poison
  • Night Slash
  • Poison Tail

Spearow & Fearow

  • Drill Run (Fearow only)
  • Sky Attack

Horsea, Seadra, Kingdra

  • Sky Attack
  • Splash (lol)

Beedrill, Spearow, Fearow, Horsea, Seadra, Kingdra, Ariados, Remoraid and Octillery learn Focus Energy. No Sniper Pokemon learn Laser Focus. There's also a few Z-Moves that increase critical hit ratio (Z-Acupressure, Z-Foresight, Z-Heart Swap, Z-Sleep Talk & Z-Tailwind) which I didn't wanna go into because wasting your Z-Move on this seems somewhat useless. The Lansat Berry, Razor Claw and Scope Lens also increase critical hit ratio for any Pokemon who holds it.

Hope I helped. :)

In a Double Battle if you have a Pokemon with the move Storm Throw or the move Frost Breath you could have a Sniper with the move mimic (Kingdra is one), or Octillery gets entrainment and Sniper so you could do that.
