Alolan Persian @ Leftovers
Ability: Fur Coat
EVs: 252 Attack/4 Special Defense/252 Speed
Nature: Jolly (+Speed -Special Attack)
IVs: 0 Special Attack

Play Rough


Night Slash


Play Rough is for dealing with Fighting-type Pokemon. Also, if a Fighting-type does get to attack, Persian has the ability Fur Coat which reduces damage taken from physical attacks, since most fighting typed moves are physical.
U-Turn is for if you need to switch switch out Persian quickly.
I picked Night Slash for this moveset because it is good for a Pokemon to know at least one of the moves of its type. I didn't pick Dark Pulse because it is not a physical move, and that way it would be easier to put all of Persian's strength in attack rather than splitting up her strength into Attack and Special Attack.
Toxic is for if Persian is battling against a bulky Pokemon.
Leftover's is just a good item to have. It will help restore Persian's HP, while, if she has used Toxic, the other Pokemon is losing it.

Alolan Persian has 3 abilities, which are Fur Coat, Technician, and Rattled, which are pretty good abitities

Persian-Alola @ Focus Sash
Ability: Technician
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
IVs: 0 Atk


Parting Shot

Hidden Power [Flying]

Nasty Plot

This set is the sweeper variant, which is the most common. Snarl is for it's STAB, Hidden Power Ice is for coverage, Parting Shot is to cripple the opponent and pressures a switch, and also allows you to switch as well. Nasty Plot changes Persians normally mediocre special attack stats into a powerful threat.
I hope I helped!! :D

Garfield Cat Set-up Sweeper/Wall
EV Spread: 252 Sp. Attack 252 HP 4 Def
Nature: Modest/Calm (+Sp. Atk -Atk or +Sp. Def -Atk
Ability: Fur Coat/Technician
Item: Leftovers

Nasty Plot


HP Flying

Thunderbolt/Parting Shot

Let's take a look at this set. I mean, Persian isn't a really viable PU mon but this moveset is still here. EV Spread, The EV Spread is for having a Persian that Hits Hard and takes Hits well. The nature depends on what Persian you want, Bold for Tanky, Modest for Sweeper. The abilities work same as the Natures. Fur coat for Tanky, Technician for Sweeper. Leftovers are for recovery. This fat cat can't take hits well. Nasty Plot is for Massive Sp. Atk. Snarl for Technician Boost STAB attack. HP Flying is Technician Boost Coverage, T-Bolt for Powerful move or, if your opponent threatens you with a Devastating move, use Parting Shot. I recommend Parting Shot.

Since Alolan Persian has more Sp. Att, I'm making him a special att. Sweeper.

Alolan-Persian @ Life Orb
Ability: Fur Coat
EVs: 252 Sp. Att/128 Spe/128 HP
Nature: Bashful (Nothing)
IVs: 0 Att

-Foul Play
-Nasty Plot
-Power Gem

Explanation: Nasty Plot raises Sp. Att by two stages and let Persian sweep. If the opponent is a physical sweeper, Foul Play is here to take revenge. Power Gem is a good Rock type special attack. U-turn is a physical attack that let Persian to switch out without wasting a turn.

Persian-Alola @ Life Orb
Ability: Technician
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
- Nasty Plot
- Dark Pulse / Snarl
- Power Gem / Thunderbolt
- Water Pulse / HP Fire

Nasty Plot boosts Special Attack, Dark Pulse or Snarl would be your Main Dark STAB depending on your preference on Secondary Effects. Power Gem hits Bug, Fire, Flying and Ice types super effectively, while Thunderbolt hits Water and Flying Pokemon super Effectively. Water Pulse hits Ground, Fire and Rock types super effectively. HP Fire hits Steel and Grass types super effectively.
