To raise attack:
• Use a Pokemon with Synchronize with one of these natures:
- Lonely (+Atk, -Def)
- Adamant (+Atk, -SpAtk)
- Naughty (+Atk, -SpDef)
- Brave (+Atk, -Spd)
Max out the IVs using hyper training in Hau'oli City and Max out attack EVs in Poke Pelago. For remaining EVs, since you don't want defense EVs, Raise its HP, since it can't be "raised" by Beast Boost, and Speed, since it's max speed stat anyways is 137, with a supporting nature.

To make Atk>Def:
Same as above, try sticking to Lonely nature.
Also, You might want one of these other defense-lowering natures:
- Mild (+SpAtk, -Def)
- Gentle (+SpDef, -Def)
- Hasty (+Spd, -Def)

That's all I can recommend.

Also, the chances of this happening is EXTREMELY slim, as Stakataka's Max Attack stat is 397, and its minimum Defense stat is 384.

Good luck!

Don't use Docile, even though it lowers Defense, it has no effect because it raises Defense.
Boi, you missed that it needs to have 0 def ivs
It doesn't have to have 0 physical defense IVs. 31 Atk/15 Def will definitely work, and that's what Smogon recommends.
Down Voting because this does not work :P

(because you must really specify and use only lonely)
Stop downvoting everything I do.
We're not down-voting EVERYTHING you do. We only down-vote when you say Stakataka can be used with a nature other than lonely.

The only way to have a Stakataka with an Attack boost from Beast Boost is the following:

Lonely Nature With a Defense IV of 15 or lower (Level 50), Defense EV of 0, and an Attack IV of 31 and EV of 252,
Lonely Nature with a Defense IV of 14 or lower (Level 100), Defense EV of 0, and an Attack IV of 31 and EV of 252

It's Defense is so much higher than its attack that it needs 0.9 Def and 1.1 attack to get the boosts, and a 15 IV doesn't work at level 100. No other Natures work, as the Defense will always be greater than the Attack otherwise, and using a Defense IV of 15 at Level 100 has the stats equal to each other. Oddly, I test battled one with equil Attack and Defense on Showdown!: and it raises Defense with Beast Boost every time.

Hope I Helped!

Downvoted because this is kind of hard to understand. Make it a bit less complicated.
