I feel this would be pretty fun: A Soak Shedinja and Seaking w/lightningrod combo
But, the Seaking must have soak to use on Shedinja, making it only weak to Grass and Electric.
Luckily, w/Seaking's lightning rod (HA) ability, both would be weak to Grass.

...Nor status ailments, weather damage..
Simple fix. Bring Mega Sableye. He can bounce back any entry hazards,( which shouldn't be a problem anyways since you're most likely going to lead with this), can set up Sunny Day, and role play Shedinja to get wonder guard, making him able to withstand any attack in the game, due to Fairy having almost no physical moves, and him having an insane special defense. On top of all this, he can quash super effective hitters, use Fire punch, ice punch, signal beam, or other moves to help kill gras types. Plus, Shedinja gets many bug type moves, so he can help as well
My computer doesn't let me open these links from Showdown. I'd appreciate some elaboration, as this works perfectly fine for me. I tested this out to make sure
Bulbapedia also says role play fails on wonder guard. https://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Role_Play_(move)

A fun gimmick can be use a trick room team and frost breath araquanid to garanteed crit on crabominable with anger point to bring it at +6 attack losing less than 10 hp, quiver dance pheromosa+oricorio (self explanatory), z-conversion porygon-z+tapu koko(if you want to change porygon in electric type) or tapu lele(if you want to change porygon in psychic type), in trick room you can use milotic paired with gigalith with weakness policy and use bulldoze with milotic activating wp on gigalith and slowing it down even more, while dealing relatively no damage. if you are imaginative enough you can pull off good strategies while having lots of fun! Just take your time and imagine what pokémon do you want to build around and this combos complete themselves.

I really like to have togedemaru with lightning rod with gyarados

ability: lightning rod
252 EV speed, 252 EV hp, 6 EV attack
nature: joly
moveset: zing zap, encore, nuzzle, spiky shield
item: air balloon

ability: intimidate
252 EV HP, 252 EV attack, 6 EV speed
nature: adamant
moveset: dragon dance, aqua tail, crunch, rain dance
item: leftovers

I like to do something similar. but it's relatively different. I use Kyogre and Mega Sceptile, so sceptile's fire weakness, which is taken care of by the extra dragon typing but still, is completely nullified, and Kyogre's electric and Grass weaknesses are also nullified (thanks to Sceptile's fury cutter). This works extremely well, and carried me through OrAs, and then through UsUm's Elite Four and beyond. I imagine if we can get both of them in S&S they'll help to carry me through again
Since when were dragon and water weak to fire and bug?
Sceptile(without mega evolution) is weak to both. When he mega evolves, he eliminates 1, cause fire is resisted by dragon.

Tricky to pull off...
Skill swap Wonder Guard off of Shedninja with a fast Pokémon. Next turn the fast Pokémon uses skill swap again on an Electric type with an Air Balloon. Invincible to all but a Mold Breaker.

Why Eelektross? Why not a better electric Pokemon like Xurkitree?
Why not Eelektross? He's my favorite Electric-type.
Because Xurkitree and Raikou are much stronger, so if the opponent uses something like toxic, a Raikou or Xurkitree would defeat more of the opponents' Pokemon before it succumbed to the poison.
Aw yes, I was stuck in there mindset of "Eelectross is invincible"
By the way, it can also be defeated by forced switching, which is very common.

EV- 100 SDef/ 252 Spe/ 156 Def
Ability- shield dust/ sweet veil
Pollen puff- to attack AND heal
quiver dance- to boost stats and activate dancer
Dazzling Gleam- obvious
Aromatherapy- to heal conditions

Oricorio (Pom-Pom)@Focus Sash
Evs- 252 SpAtk/ 252 Spe/ 4 Hp
ability- dancer
Revelation dance- STAB, good damage, coverage
Air Slash- STAB, good flinch chance
Protect/ sky attack- both give you a free turn, but I'm unsure if dancer activates during sky attack.
Baton Pass/ Mirror move- either to pass stats into another sweeper, cause this thing's frail AF, or to do a quiver dance of your own, or even a pollen puff of your own.

I suggest the Pompom style as it has very few weaknesses. More than your average electric type, but still. Plus, with Mirror move, you can heal Ribombee anyways, or flinch the threats, or just sweep the crap out of them with revelation dance.

How about an invincible Arcanine combo w/Shedinja (must have Mimic), an Entrainment Pokémon, and a Arcanine. Your Entrainment Pokémon entrains a Pokémon other than your Shedinja. Have Shedinja mimic the entrainment, so it has the move. Switch your Entrainment Pokémon out for Arcanine and have it use Burn-Up, making it lose it Fire typing (or otherwise, typeless). Have Shedinja entrain its Wonder Guard onto Arcanine. Now, you have a totally invincible Arcanine. The only things that it will take damage from are entry hazards, like Spikes, status conditions, like Burn or Poisoning, and weather-related damage, like Hail or Sandstorm.

How about an invincible Shedinja?
[email protected] Goggles
ability- Wonder guard
Spite- for extra stall filth
X-Scissor- STAB, criticizes chance
Shadow Sneak- STAB, priority
Toxic- to stall

[email protected] Gem
Ability- sturdy
skill swap- swap to shedinja.
Stealth Rock- helpful
Safeguard- to prevent status conditions
explosion- buffed by normal gem, doesn't affect shedinja

[email protected]
Ability- prankster--->Magic bounce
Swagger- to buff Shedinja
Safeguard- to block shedinja from status
Recover- to sustain
Sucker Punch- for those taunters

Simple, really. Skill swap Shedinja and Carbink, Bam. Shedinja now has Sturdy, so his one health keeps him alive. then Carbink can set up nd explosion to clear the enemy field, and you bring in Sableye to support and stuff, and then bring in another tank if one of these guys dies, I used Deoxys Defense.

P.S. I like your profile picture!

aegislash and ribombee
Aegislash tanks ribombee heals w pollon puff
Thats it...

It's okay....but, I would do this with a single Pokémon, a defensive one that also heals itself.
