Barraskewda is an excellent physical sweeper. Swift Swim makes it's already insane Speed stat double again, so Pelipper is a go to partner (but I use a Prankster Sableye with Rain Dance because it has a great supportive Pokemon movepool other than Rain Dance). Using a Life Orb can increase Attack stats (with the cost of a little health), or you could use an Assault Vest, for a more specially defensive approach.
Barraskewda is my personal favorite Galar Pokemon. Because of its amazing Attack and Speed, it can be used for insta-kills. But like every Pokemon, Barraskewda has it's weaknesses, and Barraskewda's is its fragility. It has abysmal HP, Defense, and Special Defense stats, which make it very killable. Other than that, just use your speed to kill opponents before they kill you (watch out for Trick Rooms).
