Seems to be designed as a dedicated doubles or triples medic/screener.  Movepool is...  disappointing.

Comfey seems to suffer from a distinct lack of being able to do anything special. 110 Special Defence would be solid for lower tiers like RU and NN when they exist fully, but as of right now in higher tiers and Wifi it's nothing to shout about. 100 speed is pretty nice for a defensive mon but unless you really want role compression it's not a huge selling point. It also doesn't get any special moves beyond Leech Seed, Calm Mind, Taunt and Aromatherapy. Fairy typing is good though. Just wish it was Fairy/Grass so it's related moves and abilities would be more viable.

Since Comfey doesn't have an official tier yet and RU being in Beta, I'm going to base the moveset on UU, so the EVs and Natures will probably have to change at some point.

Comfey

Comfey @ Leftovers
Ability: Natural Cure
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SpD / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
- Taunt
- Synthesis / Leech Seed / Aromatherapy
- Toxic / Leech Seed / Aromatherapy
- U-turn / Dazzling Gleam

Triage seems like an interesting ability but to be honest being able to pivot in and out of status is more valuable. EVs are to avoid 2HKO's from Amoongus and Tenta so it can pivot them easier. A fast Taunt is super useful for shutting down walls like the aforementioned two and Blissey. The second slot is for your choice of reliable healing for better pivoting, wearing down enemies whilst increasing longevity or providing team support. The third is the same again but Toxic is recommended unless you really need role compression as it helps Comfey be a not trash tier Stallbreaker in junction with Taunt. U-Turn helps it be a pivot while Dazz dents stuff like Krook.

Honestly I should really split it's two roles separate but Comfey really doesn't excel at either so I might as well throw them together and call it Fast Utility.

Comfey @ Leftovers
Ability: Triage
Evs: 252 Spe / 252 SpA / 6 Hp
Timid Nature (+Spe, -Atk)

Synthesis
Calm Mind
Energy Ball
Draining Kiss

Explanation: Triage is a cool Ability
that gives +3 Priority to healing moves.
Synthesis is For healing and Priority with Triage. Calm Mind raises Special Attack and Special Defense by 1 stage each. Energy Ball is Water, Rock and Ground type coverage. Draining Kiss is STAB and Priority with Triage.

Gen 8 NU
Comfey @ Life Orb
Ability: Triage
EVs: 236 HP / 252 SpA / 20 Spe
Modest Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Draining Kiss
- Giga Drain
- Calm Mind
- Stored Power

With Comfey's Ability Triage, I don't feel like you need to invest in Comfey's speed that much. Draining Kiss is STAB. Giga Drain is useful for dealing with Rock, Ground, and Water types. Calm Mind boosts your Special Attack and Special Defense. Stored Power gains power when you use Calm Mind multiple times and is useful for dealing with Poison types switching in.

Ok, this moveset is seen as a bit of a current meta in doubles so here goes all.

Comfey @ Leftovers
Ability: Triage
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SpD / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
- Floral Healing
- Draining kiss
-Synthesis
- Petal Dance

Honestly I think Comfey is a great poke'mon in doubles but is not that great in singles. The extra priority given by Triage is amazing for healing moves, making it good for doubles when you heal something like a +4 Def and SpD Toxipex, or a Belly Drum Snorlax. Given the right setup it can also be used as a good helping hand supporter but it'll not stay on the field for
as long unless you have a recovery move. If you find this is a good moveset give me a response with your feedback. All is appreciated even if it's in telling me a better moveset than this.

Comfey @ Life Orb
Ability: Triage
Nature: Modest (+SpAtk -Atk)
EVs: 252 Def / 252 SpD / 4 HP
- Draining Kiss
- Giga Drain
- Calm Mind
- Hidden Power [Ground]

Draining Kiss as STAB. Giga Drain as coverage. Calm Mind to boost stats and Hidden Power [Ground] to cover all weaknesses.

This is a similar set to Sphere_of_Aura's moveset, but modified to be a sub-seed / revenge killer hybrid.

Comfey @ Life Orb/ Big Root / Leftovers (sustain or more reliable revenge killing)
Ability: Triage
EVs - ( 252 HP / 104 Def / 132 SpA / 20 Spe for max speed Jolly Incineroar to get a Charm or Leech Seed off.)
Nature: Modest / Bold / Calm
- Draining Kiss
- Giga Drain
- Substitute / Protect / Calm Mind / Aromatherapy (sometimes needed, but not preferred) / Charm ( to make up for its mediocre physical bulk and force switches.)
- Leech Seed

This moveset is designed to deal chip damage with its teammates until they are in range to be cleaned up with it's priority moves thanks to Triage and possibly a Life Orb to increase its damage. Since there is no coverage against Poison, Steel, Grass, and Fire types, it loves to have Ground or Fire type teammates, who help against those Pokemon and like its capabilities to stop bulky Water types, as well as Ground and Rock types. Grassy Terrain can help its longevity, and Giga Drain for damage, but it may not be worth the trouble depending on your team because it heals the opposing team too.

This pokémond is totoally amazing, I don’t understand why smogon put it in UU only...

Comfey @ Leftovers
Ability: Triage
EVs: 252 HP / 252 SpA / 4 SpD
Modest Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Draining Kiss
- Giga Drain
- Leech Seed
- Calm Mind

This set is simple, first, use leech seed for good recovery in each turn with leftovers. Than, use calm mind, the 252 HP will let you hold more hits. After all the stat boost, use Draining kiss, because of the ability Triage, this Pokemon will almost always move first.
Check and Counter:
strong steel, poison type could easily let this Pokemon fainted, and grass type was immune to leech seed.

thanks for the feedback on my moveset. my feedback to your moveset is why you have so much speed EV's since all of its attacking moves will have priority. a few is good, to break the base 100 speed tie though.
Wouldn't it be for a fast calm mind setup? So it can do it and take a hit better?
Oh sorry! It should be 252 HP / 252 SpA / 4 SpD.....i just copy and paste the wrong one :p

Ok, this moveset is mainly for doubles as a healer. I don't know how useful this Pokemon will be for singles though.

[email protected]
Nature: Bold/Timid
Ev's: 252 HP/252 Def/4 Spe
Ability: Triage
-Floral Healing
-Leech Seed/Synthesis/Giga Drain
-Substitute/Taunt
-Drain Kiss

Floral Healing is quite obvious. To heal your ally with priority.

Next, either Leech Seed or Synthesis or Giga Drain. Synthesis and Giga Drain will get priority due to Triage. Synthesis to recover bulk of HP, Giga Drain for healing as well as priority damage and coverage. Else Leech Seed also works though not priority.

Drain Kiss for priority damage as well as STAB. This move works well for Pokemons who are weak to fairy and does fair chip damage for others.

Substitute for protection. Behind Substitute you can't get statused except for Infiltrator Pokemons, but they are less. And for Dragapult, people generally keep Clear Body. Also there are enough priority healing moves to keep the substitute. Once behind Substitute this can be a pain to deal with.

So, overall I think this Pokemon can fit in any team quite nicely and provide healing support to save one move slot of teammates which may had been kept for healing move.

Here is a little gimmick set:

Comfey @ Leftovers
Ability: Triage
EVs: 252 HP / 252 SpA / 4 SpD
Modest Nature
- Trick Room
- Draining Kiss
- Calm Mind
- U-turn

Ok. You're probably thinking, "Trick Room on a base 100 speed Pokemon. Why?" Let me explain. Draining Kiss is STAB and has the Triage Ability, so you'll be moving first when you use it. Calm Mind is for use outside of Trick Room when you get the opportunity to. Trick Room allows Comfey to get in a "slow" U-Turn to bring a Trick Room sweeper in saftley. Gimmiky, but can be effective if you manage to pull it off.

Comfey @ Leftovers
Ability: Triage
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
- Floral Healing
- Calm Mind
- Safeguard / Helping Hand
- Draining Kiss

Doubles/Triples support. Like the obvious purpose. Draining Kiss become priority (even goes first than Extreme Speed), plus STAB and 75% Damage would be healed. Calm Mind can make you survive longer as well as become deadlier with Priority Draining Kiss. Safeguard prevents all status conditions and Floral Healing can help allies.

Helping Hand can be an option if you have someone who has Safeguard already.
