Ability:Gulp Missle
EVs:252 HP / 252 SpD / 4 SpA
•Amnesia/Air Slash
Surf is STAB and it gets the arrokuda/Pikachu in his mouth, roost heals, defog gets rid of hazards, And you can either use amnesia for more Sp.Defense or Air Slash for STAB

Was that meant to go as a comment on my answer or was it meant to be an answer?

Cramorant @ Weakness Policy
Ability: Gulp Missile
EVs: 4 Atk, 252 SpAtk, 252 Spe
Nature: Naive
IVs: 0 HP, 0 Def, 0 SpDef
- Surf
- Air Slash
- Reversal
- Endure

Use Endure when obvious Electric or Rock Move is coming to activate Weakness Policy. IVs and Nature are meant to lower your defenses & HP so that Reversal can do more damage easier. Surf and Endure allows you to continue to activate Gulp Missile and get it to resolve repeatedly.

this entire set is ruined if they outspeed you though, and cramorants speed isnt that great. If they outspeed you after you use endure, they can just attack you again, even if you do out speed them, priority exists
It still may be useful late-game when Prio and Pokémon that outspeed are eliminated.

Cramorant @ Kee Berry
Ability: Gulp Missile
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Def / 252 SpD
Bold Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Stockpile
- Surf
- Roost
- Amnesia
Surf is STAB and it gets the arrokuda/Pikachu in his mouth, roost heals, Amnesia just in case of electric special moves, Stockpile just to get both Defense and Sp.Defense up.
This moveset has really worked a lot for me especially with a storm drain cradily tank with stockpile.
