Just a little tip: for Indeedee movesets that don't specify which gender of Indeedee it is, just copy/paste the moveset and import it to Showdown! using the Import Button. For male Indeedee, just copy/paste the set to Showdown and click "Save" and it will make Indeedee male. If you import a set and want to use Indeedee-F, just add -F to the end of Indeedee so it would look like Indeedee-F, then click "Save" and it will make the Indeedee female.

Calm Mind Indeedee Set

Indeedee @ Terrain Extender
Ability: Psychic Surge
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Timid / Modest Nature
- Calm Mind
- Psychic / Stored Power
- Mystical Fire
- Shadow Ball / Energy Ball

Here is a attack heavy Indeedee set. Terrain Extender is a useful item since Psychic Surge will last longer. Psychic is a nice, consistent move, or you could run Stored Power; whichever you prefer. Energy Ball is solid too but you could also run Shadow Ball. Mystical Fire is to be expected since it is pretty fire.

You can also consider Expanding Force over Stored Power or Psychic, since it gets boosted in Psychic Terrain.

Ability: Psychic Surge
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Timid Nature

Expanding Force is even stronger in Psychic Terrain, and Indeedee can summon Psychic Terrain, so yeah. Expanding Force and Hyper Voice for STAB. Mystical Fire is steel coverage. Trick to get rid of the Choice Specs.

Choice Specs
Gen 8 NU

Indeedee-F (F) @ Choice Specs
Ability: Psychic Surge
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Timid / Modest Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Expanding Force
- Shadow Ball
- Mystical Fire
- Dazzling Gleam

This is a 4 attacks Choice Specs set it you want to use Indeedee-F in NU. Realistically, you are almost never going to click Hyper Voice. So, why not replace Hyper Voice with a coverage move? That's what this set does. It has a coverage move instead of Hyper Voice. Expanding Force is strong STAB during Psychic Terrain. Shadow Ball provides coverage against Heatproof Bronzong and if you want, Xatu. Mystical Fire allows you to deal with steel types like Escavalier. Dazzling Gleam allows you to deal super effective damage against Guzzlord. You can use Modest Nature instead of Timid Nature if your team has good speed control.

VGC SUPPORT

So, I know that Fwoofy already posted an answer, but this is, in fact, different. This is built to support calyrex shadow, among other Pokemon.

Indeedee-F (F) @ Psychic Seed
Ability: Psychic Surge
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SpD
Bold Nature
- Helping Hand
- Expanding Force
- Protect
- Follow Me

Pretty basic set, psychic seed is good for boosting your defense.

Psychic seed boost special defense, not defense.

Gen 8 NU

Indeedee-F (F) @ Choice Scarf
Ability: Psychic Surge
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Timid Nature / Modest Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Expanding Force
- Mystical Fire
- Trick
- Healing Wish

Indeedee-F is a Pokemon that appreciates Bronzong rising to RU, as now you don't have to slot Shadow Ball for Heatproof Bronzong, and now there aren't any Steel-types in the tier that are nuetral to Mystical Fire. This is a Two Attacks + Trick + Healing Wish set. Very surprised that no one has posted an Indeedee-F set that has Healing Wish yet.

Expanding Force is incredibly strong Psychic STAB and you'll most likely be spamming this move often. Mystical Fire allows you to damage Copperajah and Escavalier. Trick allows you to screw up defensive Pokemon and Pokemon like Snorlax, as with Choice Scarf they'll be locked into one move. Healing Wish provides really good utility for your team, especially late-game, as it can give wallbreakers on your team another chance to sweep.

3 STAB psychic moves? LOL
Is it really that bad? I can change it.
Isn't this the one from Smogon?
Nope. It’s not.
You don't need psychic when you have expanding force and psychic surge. Replace it with coverage or calm mind.
