Please suggest as many team mates as possible that have great synergy with Chandelure on a competitive team, and explain in detail why. (include sets and elaborate based on typing, stat distribution, abilities moves etc.) Legendary/Mythical Pokemon do not count!

I understand this can depend on the set, so assume that I am using one of the following:

Set 1: SINGLES Calm Mind
Chandelure @ Leftovers
Ability: Infiltrator
EVs: 128 HP / 128 SpA / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
- Substitute
- Calm Mind
- Shadow Ball
- Flamethrower

Set 2: SINGLES Minimize
Chandelure @ Lum Berry
Ability: Infiltrator
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
Modest Nature
- Shadow Ball
- Fire Blast
- Hidden Power Fighting / Energy Ball
- Minimize

Set 3: DOUBLES Trick Room
Chandelure @ Focus Sash / Iapapa Berry
Ability: Flash Fire
EVs: 252 HP / 252 SpA / 4 SpD
IVs: 0 Spe
Quiet Nature
- Trick Room
- Heat Wave
- Shadow Ball
- Protect

Is this for Battle Spot or something else? Are there any Pokemon, moves, or abilities that you're not allowed to use?
Hi sumwun, my concerns are with 6vs6 singles and 4vs4 doubles formats, but Battle Spot suggestions are also welcome. My only restrictions are Legendary/Mythical/Ultra Beast Pokemon, no need to worry about moves or abilities, unless they're illegal of course. Thanks!
In set 2 you forgot 128 evs?

Gliscor can use stealth rock to put opponents in Chandelure's KO range, U-turn to switch Chandelure in safely, and defog.

Wash Rotom can use defog and volt switch, and it can switch into water or ground attacks.

Serperior can use defog and threaten bulky waters that counter Chandelure.

Excadrill can use stealth rock and rapid spin.

Greninja can use spikes to put opponents in Chandelure's KO range (and hit volleyballs :P) and sweep after Chandelure takes out enough Greninja threats.

In doubles, I think Chandelure most appreciates drought and tailwind, so a good teammate would be mega Charizard Y.
