Komala @ Leftovers
Ability: Comatose
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SpD
Careful Nature
- Return / Brick Break
- Shadow Claw
- Bulk Up
- Wish

Another simple set. Spam Bulk Up to raise your stats & use Wish when necessary. Return can be used as STAB and gets great neutral coverage with Shadow Claw, only being resisted by 4 Pokemon. Brick Break provides more coverage overall, especially with Shadow Claw, but you will then be left without STAB.

Future Note: If this eventually gets Drain Punch via Move Tutors in another game, use that instead of Brick Break.

Komala @ Choice Band
Ability: Comatose
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 Def
Adamant Nature
- Sleep Talk
- Last Resort

Explanation: Now that Move Tutors are back in Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, Komala gets access to Last Resort. Komala can use Sleep Talk without being asleep because of Comatose making it already asleep and Sleep Talk has more PP than Last Resort. Last Resort is powerful STAB. I also ran some calcs if anyone is curious about it. Its just a gimmicky set that I thought it would be fun to try out.

252+ Atk Choice Band Komala Last Resort vs. 252 Hp / 192+ Def Toxapex: 192-226 (63.1 - 71.3%) -- Guaranteed 2HKO

What do you guys think?

I see your going for tank. Why not Toxic then?

Komala is an interesting Pokemon. It's ability, Comatose allows it to avoid the common Will-O-Wisp and Toxic. It gets access to Sucker Punch, Wood Hammer, Rock Slide and Earthquake so its killing power isn't hopeless. Without further ado, I exhibit my Komala Moveset!

Komala (Komala The Koala) @ Leftovers
Ability: Comatose
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 Def
Adamant Nature
IVs: 0 SpA
- Sucker Punch
- Wish / Yawn
- Wood Hammer / Return
- Rock Slide / Earthquake / Return

Sucker Punch is self-explanatory. It has +2 Priority, so it will get past the (less common now) Gale Wings and Prankster boosts. Wish can be used to recover HP for your team or for Komala. Yawn can be used to pressure opponents to switch out or risk turns vulnerable to attacks due to being asleep. Wood Hammer can be used to get rid of Suicune if used on a team with Mimikyu or you could go with the good old Return for STAB. Rock Slide or Earthquake is used for coverage.

Comment if you have ways to improve this set!

A small note, Sucker Punch's priority doesn't matter against Prankster because it will fail against status moves. Just a nitpick, nothing huge :)
Sucker Punch has +1 priority.

Komala (M) @ Leftovers
Ability: Comatose
EVs: 8 HP / 250 Def / 250 SpD
Impish Nature
- Return
- Play Rough
- Wish
- Substitute / Bulk Up

Return: If you max out happiness, Return would have 102 base power + STAB = 153 base power.

Play Rough: Use it for Ghost and Rock and for super effective damage.

Wish: Self-explanatory; just tick off your opponents one by one.

Substitute/Bulk Up: Komala isn't the bulkiest Pokemon, so these are good moves to boost defense (for the latter, anyway). However, if you can use Substitute and Wish properly, go with that.

Komala @ Choice Band
Ability: Comatose
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 Def
Adamant Nature
- Sleep Talk
- Return / Brick Break
- Earthquake / Rock Slide
- Shadow Claw / Sucker Punch

Bulky physical sweeper. The choice band and the high attack stat will put on 541 attack right off the bat. Using sleep talk with choice band is very powerful since you're not stuck on one move all the time, of course you can still choose one move if you know it's going to sweep the rest of the opponent's team. Baton passing from a Ninjask makes this setup even harder to deal with because of the speed, however you may want to switch to Shadow Claw in this case since you would be moving before anyone anyway, and having that extra critical hit chance could prove useful. Don't worry about the RNG messing you up too much; they are all very good damaging moves that can at least two hit any mon that comes your way. If you want a fighting type move, though, you may want to get rid of Return since ghost types could easily bypass your offenses in that case.

Okay so 1. Komala has a base atk. stat of 115 and 2. it has a good combination of moves. Heres My set.

Sleeper Sweeper (Komala) @ Assault Vest
Ability: Comatose
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 SpD
Careful Nature
- Sucker Punch / Return
- Play Rough
- Earthquake
- U-turn

A Careful nature, 252 Special Defense EVs and an Assault Vest mean Komala can tank a hit or 2 from special attacks. The rest goes into Attack and HP for smashing power. Play Rough and Earthquake are powerful moves that also give coverage. Sucker Punch or Return can be used for priority or STAB, respectively. U-Turn is used to switch out when things are getting nasty.

I hope you liked it and if you have any comments plz comment.

Why both thrash and return?
I don't know. It seemed like a good idea at the time, but I guess not.
