Obstagoon @ Choice Band
Ability: Defiant/Guts
EVs: 4 HP, 252 Atk, 252 Spe
Nature: Jolly
- Knock Off
- Close Combat
- Gunk Shot/Ice Punch/Double-Edge
- Parting Shot/Switcharoo

Ability is more personal preference here. Defiant & Guts are both really good Abilities, and being Banded means you could really have either, meaning the opponent will have to either guess which it is or find out the hard way.

Obstagoon (Dark/Normal)
Ability: Guts
Jolly Nature (+Spe, -SAtk)
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe
Item: Flame Orb
-Obstruct
-Knock Off
-Trick / Gunk Shot / Close Combat
-Facade

Obstruct activates Guts while protecting Obstagoon along with a chance of lowering the opponents defense. Knock Off removes the opponent's item so you can give it the Flame Orb with Trick. Gunk Shot or Close Combat can be used as well. Facade is the main attacking move which gets to hit double because of the burn.

Bulk up is honestly better than trick because only mawile and lucario resist its dual stabs

Obstagoon @ Flame Orb
Ability: Guts
EVs: 4 Def, 252 Atk, 252 Spe
Nature: Jolly
- Knock Off
- Facade
- Bulk Up
- Taunt/Obstruct/Close Combat

Standard move set guts, flame orb, facade abuse because 140 BP STAB Guts boosted is really good paired with bulk up to further increase the def and attack to abnormal levels its a terror so use it have fun. Oh yeah, Obstruct to cripple physical contact like ferrothorn. Taunt is to stop recovery from milotic, hippowdon, corviknight. Close Combat is to help against steel types

Obstagoon @ Leftovers
Ability: Reckless
EVs: 4 HP, 252 Atk, 252 Spe
Nature: Adamant
- Knock Off
- Double-Edge
- Bulk Up
- Obstruct

This is a set that I’ve been having a lot of luck with online. Even if you can only set up one Bulk Up, Obstagoon will get really scary really fast. Double-Edge is an incredibly powerful move, especially with Reckless and STAB, and Knock Off is an excellent way to punish ghosts trying to avoid Double-Edge, or to just cripple any potential item-reliant strategies. Obstruct is a very valuable tool to allow for Obstagoon to heal with Leftovers, with an added bonus of potentially lowering your opponent’s defense, allowing you to probably KO next turn, or force your opponent to switch.
