Dual Screens
Orbeetle @ Light Clay
Ability: Frisk / Swarm
EVs: 248 HP / 8 SpD / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
- Reflect
- Light Screen
- U-turn
- Sticky Web / Bug Buzz / Psychic

The only thing that sets it apart from Grimmsnarl as a dual screen setter is U-turn, and Sticky Web access. That's about it.

Stored Power Set
Orbeetle @ Leftovers
Ability: Frisk
EVs: 252 HP / 108 Def / 8 SpA / 140 SpD
Bold Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Calm Mind
- Iron Defense
- Recover
- Stored Power

If there aren't any dark types on the opposing team, Orbeetle can Calm Mind and Iron Defense until you need to Recover, or your stats are maxed out to sweep with Stored Power.

Why rest? This thing does not, and should not, have rest. At least on an offensive Pokèmon.

A lot of people are using Orbeetle for the Dual Screen setup. I believe it's the Pokemon best use so here is my take on it.
Orbeetle @ Light Clay ( screen effects go from lasting 4 turns to 8!)
Ability: Swarm - powers up bug type moves when at low health
EVs: 248 HP / 8 SpD / 252 Spe (you'll want to be fast enough to set the screens up first, and bulky enough to survive the first few hits as well)
Timid Nature

  • Reflect
  • Light Screen
  • U-turn (use u-turn to get out of there and it will get the power-up from the ability if your at low HP, which you'll most likely be at if you just used two turns to set up screens)
  • Bug Buzz / Psychic (both are decent stab but personally I would use psychic)

[email protected] Specs (You will see why)
Ability:Frisk
Nature:Bold(for some defense)
EVs:252 HP 252 Sp.Defense 4 Defense
•Trick:Give them your choice specs and lock them on a move. If they are physical, they now have a terrible item. If they are special, you have great special defense so that’s OK
•Recover:Heal your health back up
•Calm Mind:Raise his special attack and specia defense
•Psychic:Strong STAB
This set is for annoying the heck out of your opponent.

It's risky, because if you can't trick because of sticky hold or they also have a choice item, you can't setup. You'd also want bug buzz instead because it doesn't get walled by a dark type
