Right, there are 2 ways to use rockruff, rocks suicide and choice band,

Suicide rocks

Rockruff @ Focus Sash
Ability: Steadfast
Level: 5
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Stealth Rock
- Stone Edge
- Crunch
- Fire Fang

This set is relatively easy to use, just set up rocks and sweep if you can.

Choice band

Rockruff @ Choice Band
Ability: Steadfast
Level: 5
EVs: 236 Atk / 36 Def / 196 SpD / 36 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Rock Slide
- Return
- Crunch
- Fire Fang

this set gives it enough bulk to live a hit from most non boosted Pokemon in little cup and it still outspeeds most mons in the tier.

A very Funny set!

Gen 8 LC

Rockruff @ Weakness Policy
Ability: Steadfast
Level: 5
EVs: 236 Atk / 36 Def / 36 SpD / 196 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Endure
- Stone Edge
- Play Rough
- Stealth Rock

Endure

This is a way to live a Fighting/Ground type Move, This move Is also able to make you survive one Mienfoo High Jump Kick, Unless they miss. LOL.

Stone Edge
> A stab move that Is very powerful and also has a chance to Critical Hit.

Play Rough

I saw a Mienfoo faint from this move and It's not stab either.. Probably because of Endure and Weakness Policy Activating, You could activate Weakness Policy and Use Play Rough with a Speed Boost Because Of how Rockruff has Steadfast and Mienfoo always starts with Fake Out because they might think that you're a Focus Sashed Rockruff.

Stealth Rock

If you think that you couldn't kill a really bulky Pokemon with these type of Moves, you use Stealth Rock To let your other teammates attack the bulky Pokemon with Knock Off or a Super Effective Move This is also a good move to break Focus Sashes.

Role: SteadTacker (Steadfast + Attacker) or Suicidal Stealth (Suicidal + Stealth Rocks)

Rockruff
Ability:Steadfast
Nature:Jolly
EVs:236 Atk/196 Spe/76 HP
•Stealth Rocks
•Swords Dance
•Taunt
•Stone Edge
This is meant to be a counter to Vullaby and other walls. Taunt annoys status move users, Stealth Rocks is self explanatory, Swords Dance boosts attack, and stone edge is STAB.
