Sirfetch'd @ Leftovers
Ability: Scrappy
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Swords Dance
- Close Combat
- Brave Bird
- Knock Off

This works incredibly well with Dynamax. You gotta Swords Dance only when you need to. Test the waters at the beginning, throw around a few Close Combats and Knock Offs, which come off it's crazy 135 attack stat. Sticky Web support from Galvantula helps, which also helps ensure that Sirfetch'd does not come in on Flying and Psychic types.

If it survives till late game, try Swords Dance and then boost your speed with Max Airstream, and Max Knuckle if you have already gotten a speed boost. Destroy your opponents. Real fun.

Ability: Scrappy
Evs:252atk/252hp/4def
Adamant nature
Leek gives every move a nice 50% chance to crit. Scrappy to be able to hit your fighting stab on every poke. Adamant Max atk Adamant to hit hard.
Moves:
-focus energy/sword dance
FE for confirm crit and SD for higher atk
-close combat/Superpower/meteor assault
CC for SD, Sp for FE, MA for raw power if low hp

Other moves: choose 2
Dark: knock off/night slash/throat chop
SD goes better with night slash while the others can do either.
Brave bird/leaf blade/poison jab/first impression
Can choose to not have boosting for more attack

Sirfetch'd @ Choice Band
Ability: Scrappy
EVs: 248 HP / 252 Atk / 8 SpD
Adamant Nature
- Close Combat
- Brave Bird
- Knock Off
- Quick Attack / Poison Jab / Leaf Blade

Scrappy Choice Banded Close Combat slams a lot of things, including now Ghost types. Brave Bird and Knock Off are coverage, and the last slot works well with most options.

Sirfetch'd @ Leek
Ability: Steadfast/Scrappy
EVs: 4 HP, 252 Atk, 252 Spe
Nature: Jolly
- Superpower
- Brave Bird
- Knock Off
- Focus Energy

Best used with Sticky Web support. The Leek plus Focus Energy always lands a Critical Hit, barring Pokemon with Abilities that prevent them, meaning you'll never suffer from the Attack loss from Superpower. I personally prefer Steadfast over Scrappy because I feel Knock Off covers Ghosts well enough, but it's up to preference.

Sirfetch'd@Life Orb
ABILITY: Scrappy
NATURE: Adamant (+Atk -SpAtk)
EVs: 252 Atk/252 HP/4 Spd

Swords Dance
Brick Break/Close Combat
Poison Jab
First Impression

Life Orb to raise power of moves. Swords Dance to increase Attack even further. Brick Break or Close Combat as STAB. Poison Jab for Fairy types. First Impression for Psychic type Pokemon and also for a powerful first turn only attack. However, you could replace this with Throat Chop, Night Slash or some other Dark type move for Psychic coverage if you don't like the fact that First Impression is a first turn only move.

just because Brick Break has no drawbacks doesn't mean it's better than Close Combat necessarily
Muscle band over life orb or band?
Nice set, but it says tbat life orb onky raises physical moves. This is false.

Sirfetch'd w/Leek (boost critical hits)
Ability: Scrappy (it can hit ghosts with fighting moves now)
EVs: Max Attack (For obvious reasons) Max Special Defense (For most fairies psychics and some flying) Max Defense (For the remaining physical super effective moves)
Adamant (Brave works too but Only for Trick Room)
Meteor Assault for stab and it will O.K.O almost anything plus the leek you will be unstoppable.
Poison Jab fairy coverage
Night Slash (Egg Move) but provides great psychic coverage plus it already has a high chance of landing critical plus the leek your basically guaranteed one
First Impression for priority plus more psychic coverage
Only if you want Flying coverage
Ice Punch for flying coverage

Sirfetch'd @Life Orb
Ability: scrappy
EVs: Atk:252 Def:128 Spd:128
Nature:Adamant
-Meteor Assault (feeling risky?) /close combat (powerful STAB)
-throat chop (for psychic types)
-poison jab (for fairy types)
-swords dance (obviously)

by
First impression is superior to throat chop
Meteor assault? Recharge moves are not viable (except in some rare circumstances. Eg: Hyper beam pixillate sylveon, Slaking, etc.)
That ev spread is horrendus. Max attack is great. Do not split defenses. Run max hp or max speed.
