Is this a good combo for hawlucha?

hawlucha @ flying gem
ability: unburden
EVs: open to suggestions
other moves open to suggestions
since it is just a combo I don't think it should be on RMT
flying gem boosts acrobatics, plus the absorbtion also means it gets its normal acrobatics boost then we have unburden to boost speed

Since flying gem isn't available on sun and moon I suggest a power herb set:
Hawlucha @ Power Herb
Ability: Unburden
Level: 50
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Sky Attack
- Flying Press
- Poison Jab
- Swords Dance

it works as flying gem but it let you fire a powerful sky attack in one turn and activate unburden.

This is for single battle, as a VGC player I suggest a different set for doubles:
Hawlucha @ Focus Sash
Ability: Unburden
Level: 50
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Entrainment
- Flying Press
- Encore
- Protect

it's a nice gimmicky set that can help you remove one target ability(your oppontnt's as your partner) with entrainment and change it with unburden, flying press as STAB and encore is a powerful support move and the classic protect.

Sky attack is better combined with something like high jump kick or drain punch, rather than flying press. If its only attack is flying press, it should be replaced with acrobatics.
