On the first turn, I send out a Pokemon and use Yawn. I outspeed the opponent (For this to work I have to outspeed the opponent, so only fast Pokemon will work), and the next turn I use Protect. The opponent falls asleep. Then I set up, (Any setup moves will work however Belly Drum is preferred). Then I sweep. (Or if with Belly Drum I use a move that heals half HP or use Rest with Chesto-Berry) and after I sweep. Is this possible? And if so can you list a Pokemon that fits all the criteria? List Ability, EVs, Item, List the moves Protect, Yawn, (Insert setup move), and finally (Insert recommended attacking move).

Is your strategy for Ultra Sun/Moon, Sun/Moon or any other game?
For any game.

The Pokemon that can learn yawn, protect, and belly drum are the Slowpoke family, Snorlax, the Teddiursa family, Smeargle, the Spheal family, the Darumaka family, and the Swirlix family. Of these Pokemon, the fastest one is Darmanitan.

While this strategy is possible, I can't recommend a moveset to exploit it because it's a bad strategy. First, the opponent can switch out when you're using protect, and in the process get a free turn and avoid letting a Pokemon fall asleep. Second, the opponent can switch out when you're using belly drum, and in the process get a free turn and preventing you from trying again (if you're playing with sleep clause). Third, your opponent can let you defeat one if his/her/its Pokemon, take advantage of your low HP, and revenge-kill you. There are plenty of better strategies. Don't try this one.
