Muk

Muk-Alola @ Black Sludge
Ability: Poison Touch
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 SpD
Adamant / Brave Nature

- Poison Jab
- Knock Off
- Pursuit
- Shadow Sneak / Fire Blast

Pretty self-explanatory. Poison Jab + Knock Off is a good combination for STAB. Pursuit allows you to pursuit trap Psychic and Ghost-types. So, Muk-Alola can switch into threats like Latios and click Pursuit or Knock Off.
The last move can be anything really, but these two are probably the best options. Shadow Sneak is for priority (will go better with Adamant Nature). Fire Blast (will go better with Brave Nature) is for hitting defensive Pokemon, such as Ferrothorn.

You could also try an Assault Vest set with 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 Def, if you're looking for a more bulkier build.

would you not just wanna dump into hp instead of spdef?
I agree with Jarjar. Also, an Assualt Vest is more suitable for this set in my opinion.
I did mention both EV spread and the Assault Vest set in my description already.

Doubles Set

Muk-Alola @ Black Sludge
Ability: Power of Alchemy
Evs: 252 Atk / 252 Hp / 4 Def
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -Sp. Atk)

-Protect
-Explosion
-Knock Off
-Poison Jab

Explantion: Nice Ability along with a Weird Design. The Preferred item here is Leftovers to stay in the Battle Longer along with Protect. Protect can defend you from attacks and with Lefties, you can Stay in the Battle Longer. Explosion has Scary Power. Knock Off is STAB and it makes the Foe lose its held item. Poison Jab is also STAB and it has a Chance to Poison the Foe. Here's a Good Team mate for Alolan Muk:

Golem-Alola @ Assault Vest/Air Balloon
Ability: Galvanize
Evs: 252 Atk / 252 Hp / 4 SpD
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -Sp.Atk)

-Explosion
-Rock Slide
-Earthquake
-??? (Filler Move)

Explanation 2: I choose Alolan Golem because of it's Ability, Galvanize which can make turn Normal type move turn into Electric type moves so Alolan Muk can gain that Ability when Alolan Golem faints. Explosion is STAB with Galvanize and Scary Power. Rock Slide is STAB and it has a Chance to Flinch and it hits Multiple foes in Doubles. Earthquake is Coverage against Electric, Steel, Poison and Other Rock Types. The 4th Move is filler and can be up to you. Maybe Stone Edge or Return?

EQ gonna rip this apart tho :(
Haha that's true Rex. 252 HP EVs instead of defence should be given to Muk. I like the idea about Muk getting Galvanize. And Ghost types will be affected by Explosion cause of Galvanize. Good Job on the set.
All Edited sorry for the delay.
