Shell Smash Minior is fun. It has enough bulk in Meteor Form to survive non-supereffective attacks and allow you to Shell Smash. After the boosts, spam Acrobatics and Stone Edge STAB to your heart's content. Earthquake offers more coverage, while +2 Explosion can be a nice parting gift when it's time to retire your lil' meteor. As for items, Focus Sash can let you survive a supereffective attack and set up Shell Smash, or White Herb lets you get your defences back to normal. Either way, they'll get used up eventually to let you spam Acrobatics. An important thing to note is that, in Meteor Form, Minior is immune to status, meaning that otherwise crippling moves like Will-o-Wisp and Thunder Wave won't affect Minior until it has lost its shields.

I was about to post an answer but you read my mind.  Kudos to you, sir.  Well done.
This is a crazy good set. Thank you so much.

This is pretty much my best (competitively) shiny Pokemon.
