Ribombee for Doubles
Item: Sitrus Berry
Ability: Shield Dust
EVs: 252 Speed, 252 Special Attack, 4 HP
Nature: Modest
Moveset:
- Pollen Puff (Good for restoring HP and doing damage)
- Dazzling Gleam (STAB and attacks both oppents and if misty terrain is acctivated then it powers up even more)
- Quiver Dance
- Energy Ball/ Psychic

Combine with a Oricorio that knows Revelation Dance (too attack opponents), Helping Hand (too power up Pollen Puff for damage and healing), Feather Dance/ Teeter Dance and Baton Pass or Hurricane! Oriocorio will have dancer when it will copy quiver dance so its stats raise and it can use helping hand so Ribombee can use pollen puff more effectively. It can have feather dance or teeter dance to mess with the opponent and baton pass to pass on stats.

Ribombee is my favorite Bug type in this generation and this is the set I use in RU (which I think is the tier she will belong to)

Ribombee @ Focus Sash
Ability: Shield Dust
EVs: 252 Speed, 252 Special Attack and 4 Special Defense
Timid Nature
-Quiver Dance: Boost its stats and helps her Sp Attack to be more useful
-Bug Buzz: Powerful STAB and the chance to lower the Sp Def can always help her out
-Moonblast: Powerful STAB and the chance to drop the Sp Attack of the opponent is always nice
-Hidden Power Ground: Covers the FIre, Poison, Rock and Steel weaknesses, making her able to live a little more
