I found this one on Youtube. Credit to PokeMEN7.

Appletun @ Starf Berry
Ability: Ripen
EVs: 244 HP / 84 Def / 180 SpD
Nature: Bold
Moves:
- Substitute
- Recover
- Recycle
- Apple Acid

This is pretty fun to use, as the special defence drop from Apple Acid helps no matter what stat boosts you get from the Starf Berry. If you get a Substitute off, it could even become a sweeper (if you get a special attack boosts from the Starf Berry). This Pokémon is certainly underrated, with this set there is a 4/5 chance of getting a +4 stat boost in a useful stat.

Mix of offensive tank
Next poke on the randomizer so....
[email protected]
Ability: thick fat
EVs 252hp/128def/128sp.def
Moves:
- leech seed
- Subsitute
- dragon pulse
- Apple acid
Thick fat is better than ripen in most cases.
Can do 252 spa if you want more offensive but I prefer to be tankier as apple acid helps boost damage output

Why not Apple Acid
Yeah, especially on that last one, you should definitely be using Apple Acid instead of Energy Ball, and it could be worth considering using it over Giga Drain in the second set, as well.
Hyper Beam is a terrible move, no matter what the circumstances are
you could use dragon pulse I guess
i use sub seed along with dragon pulse and apple acid
