Urshifu- Single [email protected] Life Orb
Jolly Nature
252 Atk/ 252 Speed/ 4 HP
-Wicked Blow
-Close Combat/Drain Punch
-Poison Jab/Zen Headbutt/Iron Head
-U-Turn
Explanation - Wicked Blow is STAB with 120 Base Power which is really Strong. Choose Close Combat if you want more Power or Drain Punch if you want some recovery. Personally, I would opt for Close Combat, but it's your Choice. It is the same for the 3rd move, but I would go for Iron Head for the flinch chance, but again, your choice. Also, Poison Jab and Iron Head cover Fairy. U-Turn is useful for when you encounter a faster threat or something you won't OHKO.

Urshifu @ Assault Vest / Choice Band
Ability: Unseen Fist
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Close Combat
- Wicked Blow
- Iron Head / Poison Jab
- Stone Edge

This thing has mediocre Special Defense, so an Assault Vest can be used if you don’t want to be locked into one move. A Choice Band is if you don’t mind being locked into one move and you want to hit harder. Jolly gives an increase to Speed. Close Combat is very strong STAB. Wicked Blow is a move I like to spam with the Assault Vest for STAB and a bunch of critical hits. Iron Head or Poison Jab can be used for Fairy coverage, though I prefer Iron Head for the flinch chance. Stone Edge covers Flying types.

Sub + Bulk Up

Urshifu @ Leftovers
Ability: Unseen Fist
EVs: 240 HP / 164 Atk / 104 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Substitute
- Bulk Up
- Wicked Blow
- Drain Punch

240 HP EVs puts Urshifu at 401 HP, which guarantees the Substitute won't break from one Seismic Toss, so you can freely wall Chansey/Blissey. 164 Attack EVs + an Adamant nature guarantees a 2HKO on Toxapex after a Bulk Up. The rest of the EVs are put into speed because... why not. It can outspeed stuff like max speed Bisharp, and some not fully invested base 80-85 speed mons. Substitute helps block status and gives a setup opportunity. Bulk Up is to set up to do even more damage with Wicked Blow and Drain Punch. Wicked Blow is standard STAB. Drain Punch is for good recovery.

Rain

Urshifu-Rapid-Strike @ Choice Band
Ability: Unseen Fist
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Surging Strikes
- Close Combat
- U-turn
- Aqua Jet

This thing does so much damage if bulky grasses are taken care of. Rain + Choice Band + STAB Surging Strikes cleanly 2HKOs Skarmory. Close Combat is secondary STAB to beat Ferrothorn. U-turn is for pivoting. Aqua Jet is STAB priority that will pick off weakened faster Pokemon like Cinderace, especially in rain.

252 Atk Choice Band Urshifu-Rapid-Strike Surging Strikes (3 hits) vs. 252 HP / 252+ Def Skarmory in Rain on a critical hit: 243-288 (72.7 - 86.2%) -- approx. 2HKO
Possible damage amounts: (81, 82, 82, 84, 84, 85, 87, 87, 88, 90, 90, 91, 93, 93, 94, 96)

Gen 8 NFE

Kubfu @ Choice Scarf
Ability: Inner Focus
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Close Combat
- Ice Punch / Thunder Punch
- Zen Headbutt

Kubfu isn't allowed in LC so I guess it can be put here?

Fast revenge killer. Close Combat is strong STAB, Ice Punch/Thunder Punch can pick off Flying types, Zen Headbutt beats Mareanie, U-turn for pivoting.

Urshifu Rapid @ Choice Scarf

EVs: 4 SpDef/252 Att/252 Spe
Nature: Adamant or Jolly

Surging Strikes
Close Combat
Ice Punch
U Turn

Choice Scarf really helps Urshifu's average speed, and Surging Strikes and Close Comnat are good STAB moves. Ice Punch helps with Rillaboom, U Turn helps it escape from threats like Rillaboom with Wood Hammer and Togekiss.

(Single Strike) VGC 2020 Endgame Sweeper

Urshifu-Gmax @ Focus Sash
Ability: Unseen Fist
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Wicked Blow
- Close Combat
- Iron Head/U-Turn/Protect/Poison Jab/Stone Edge
- Sucker Punch

Due to Urshifu's poor defensive typing I like to use it as a late game cleanup. If it's primary counters (Togekiss, Sylveon, Mimikyu, etc) are gone it can just roam around finishing Pokemon off with it's godlike ability, excellent attack stat, and hitting things with essentially base 120 power STAB moves and STAB Sucker Punch.

Urshifu @ life orb
Ability: unseen fist
EVs : 252atk/252spe/4sp.def
Adamant/jolly nature
Moves:
- bulk up
- drain punch
- sucker punch /iron head
- wicked blow
Practically just buff with bulk up and gain hp back with drain punch. Iron head may be extra coverage or sucker punch for priority. Just whether you trust ur speed.
Alternative set is aqua jet instead of sucker punch for surging strikes and change signature move. I personally prefer surging strikes as it needs more eccentric typings to be resisted where as single strike get walled by fairy.

Urshifu-Rapid-Strike @ Leftovers
Ability: Unseen Fist
EVs: 252 HP / 92 Atk / 164 Spe

- Iron Defense
- Body Press

Iron Defense + Body Press because it can learn Iron Defense somehow
Surging Strikes is standard STAB.
Substitute to avoid status and to 1v1 certain Pokemon.

Urshifu @ Roseli Berry/Life Orb/Assault Vest
Ability: Unseen Fist
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Wicked Blow
- Drain Punch /Brick Break
- Iron Head
- Rock Slide
Unlike the Rapid-Strike form, this one is not weak to Psychic or Grass, but extremely weak to Fairy, that's why I gave it a Roseli Berry, Wicked Blow is a powerful move with STAB and guarantees a critical hit, Drain Punch can help Urshifu gain back it's HP, Brick Break is for breaking shields, Iron Head to counter this form of Urshifu's major weakness, Rock Slide is a good move in Double Battles since it hits both targets and have a 30% Flinching Chance.
Urshifu-Rapid-Strike @ Life Orb
Ability: Unseen Fist
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Surging Strikes
- Close Combat/Brick Break/Drain Punch
- Poison Jab
- Ice Punch
Surging Strikes for a good STAB move that knocks substitutes, Close Combat is a little as it lowers the user's defenses by one stage, Poison jab is for Fairy and Grass type cover, it also has a good chance of poisoning the target, Ice Punch is for Fairy Cover and the Freeze would be nice too.
I hoped I've helped!
