Passimian @ Life Orb
Ability: Defiant
Evs: 252 Atk / 252 Spe / 4 SpD
Jolly Nature (+Spe, - SpA)

U-Turn
Iron Head
Rock Slide
Close Combat

Explanation: Yes I'm aware Defiant isn't available for Passimian yet but it can easily switch into Intimidater like Gyarados. U-Turn is Psychic type coverage and it can be used for Scouting. Iron Head is Fairy Type coverage and has a Chance to make the Foe Flinch. Rock Slide is Flying Type coverage and it also has a Chance to make the Foe Flinch. Close Combat is Power and STAB.

Passimian @ Choice Scarf
Ability: Defiant / Receiver
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- U-Turn
- Close Combat
- Iron Head / Earthquake
- Rock Slide / Earthquake

Defiant allows you to switch into Defog users and Intimidate mons. With scarf and jolly, you have a fun time outspeeding many stuff and OHKOing them with +2 Attack you get from defiant. Receiver can be used in doubles to get a good ability from your partner. U-Turn is necessary for those who knows it lol. Gains valuable momentum.

Passimian @ Adrenaline Orb
Ability: Defiant
EVs: 4 HP, 252 Atk, 252 Spe
Nature: Jolly
- Close Combat
- Earthquake
- Rock Slide
- Acrobatics

Okay, this is super gimmicky and situational, but it’s pretty fun if you can pull it off. This entire set solely relies on Passimian getting its Attack stage lowered via something like Intimidate, after which, it’ll end up with a +1 in Attack and Speed to sweep with. Close Combat is your strongest physical STAB, and the rest give you a nice total of 666 Pokemon that get hit Super Effectively. Also can’t hurt to have Sticky Web up since Passimian’s Speed is just average.
