This question has already been asked, but I changed the title so it addresses Gen 7 specifically, so this will get a unique answer.
What format?

Well, each of them have up and downs. Personally I like this one build for Hitmonchan which has helped me in a quite a few hard battles in both showdown and in my Ultra Sun game.

Hitmonchan (M) @ Life Orb
Trait: Iron Fist
EVs: 8 HP / 252 Atk / 248 Spd
Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)
- Drain Punch
- ThunderPunch
- Ice Punch
- Fire Punch

Drain Punch for counteracting the Life Orb, and the rest for coverage. I've used other sets for Hitmonchan but this is my personal favorite for pure damage/coverage.

or

Hitmonchan (M) @ Choice Scarf
Trait: Iron Fist
EVs: 8 HP / 248 Atk / 252 Spd
Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)
- Drain Punch
- ThunderPunch
- Ice Punch
- Fire Punch

If you're a bit riskier. That's what I got...

Why are you using fire punch over mach punch or rapid spin?
I usually use it on teams that already have like an Excadrill or a Ferrothorn in Game. I mostly use it for coverage really. This is just one of the sets i've used before, but yes. I've done Rapid and Mach before, I just used this one as an example.
