Bruxish @ Life Orb
Ability: Strong Jaw
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Ice Fang
- Crunch
- Psychic Fangs
- Waterfall

Really obvious set. Ice Fang, Crunch and Psychic Fangs take advantage of Strong Jaw while Waterfall is there for STAB. Life orb is used so that attack stat gets a boost so that speed may instead be boosted by nature.

Best used in singles format

Bruxish (Choice Band)
Ability: Strong Jaw
Role: Early Game Sweeper/ Revenge Killer
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 120 SpD /132 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Crunch
- Ice Fang
- Psychic Fangs
- Waterfall

This set takes advantage of Strong Jaw which increases attack for bite based attacks. Using Choice Band it raises the attack on top of the Strong Jaw boost and if you Baton Pass a few Swords Dances it becomes a killing machine. Crunch and Ice Fang for coverage and Psychic Fangs and Waterfall for STAB.

Bruxish @ Life Orb
Ability: Strong Jaw
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spe / 4 HP
Jolly Nature
- Aqua Jet (STAB)
- Ice Fang/Crunch (I'd choose Ice Fang personally because I see it as better coverage, however Crunch is a more powerful attack)
- Psychic Fangs (STAB)
- Waterfall/Aqua Tail (STAB)

Similar to other sets I've seen, but I noticed that people have neglected Aqua Jet and whilst I understand they're making the most out of Strong Jaw by adding 3 biting moves, I think Aqua Jet is still a valuable STAB attack that will prove helpful as a practically guaranteed hit to score some damage through it's priority. I prefer Jolly nature over Adamant just so that I have a better chance of out-speeding other Pokemon, however you'll have the Life Orb to help pack a little bit more of a punch. 2 water type moves does result in less coverage I am fully aware, but they both receive STAB boosts, and one will be used more to pick off opponents or to hit a dangerous opponent that may be quicker (Aqua Jet), whilst the other is just a more powerful attack (Waterfall/Aqua Tail). Obviously Aqua Tail is a slightly stronger move over Waterfall, but isn't so accurate and doesn't have a chance to flinch the opponent so it's all about whether you want a little bit more power at the risk of missing the attack (most choose Waterfall). This Move set is best suited for a single battle.

Special Bruxish

Bruxish @ Choice Specs / Life Orb
Ability: Dazzling
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
Timid Nature (+Spe, -Atk)
- Surf
- Psychic
- Frost Breath / Ice Beam
- Signal Beam / Hidden Power [Electric] / Hidden Power [Grass]

Choice Specs and Life Orb boost your damage. Dazzling keeps you save from annoying priority. Surf and Psychic are STAB. Ice Beam is more reliable than Frost Breath, but the ability to pierce through stat boosts is nice. Signal Beam, HP Electric, and HP Grass are coverage and let you hit Water/Psychic and Water/Dark Pokémon that resist your other attacks. HP Electric gives the most supereffective coverage.
