This thing is pathetic...

Snom @ Focus Sash
Ability: Ice Scales
Level: 5
EVs: 76 Def / 236 SpA / 196 SpD
Modest Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Icy Wind
- Bug Buzz
- Fairy Wind
- Round/anything else

Focus Sash is almost a must because of Snom's garbage typing. Icy Wind and Bug Buzz are STAB. Fairy Wind is coverage. Round is a filler move, seeing as Snom's movepool is just terrible.

@ThatPokemonBoi it kinda is in terms of movepool and stats. In terms of design, though, I agree it's great.
Pfft Snom is pathetic in every way possible.
@Omega-Blade X "Great" is an understatement. The term you're looking for is "beyond perfect."

:3 (Snom) @ Eviolite
Ability: Ice Scales
Level: 5
EVs: 76 Def / 236 SpA / 196 SpD
Modest Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Bug Buzz
- Icy Wind
- Struggle Bug
- Fairy Wind

Special Tank. Eviolite + Ice Scales + 196 EVs gives it decent Special Defense. 76 Defense is for a bit of physical bulk, and Modest + 236 Special Attack EVs is for boosting its Special Attacks, or, rather, its whole set. Bug Buzz is pretty strong STAB. Icy Wind is the best Special Ice STAB it has, and it lowers the targets Speed. Struggle Bug lowers the targets Special Attack, allowing it to take Special Attacks even better. Fairy Wind is coverage because it doesn't get anything better.

- Icy Wind

bug buzz and icy wind for STAB
skitter smack to lower their attack!
mirror coat because with Eviolite and Ice Scales you will be able to take a special move and fire back with maximum power!

Eviolite boosts both defenses by 1.5x, so its superior to an Assault Vest.
oop forgot
Assault Vest is the Assault Best just saying

ok so its time to repost the snom moveset I posted on the frosmoth thread

Format:LC
Snom
[email protected] Specs/Heavy Duty Boots/Eviolite
Level: 5
Ability: Ice Scales
EV spread: 252 HP, 252 SpA, 4 Def
Nature: Modest
Moves:
Icy Wind
Fairy Wind
Bug Buzz
Round/Mirror Coat

Icy Wind is mediocre STAB but at least it lowers speed I guess. Fairy Wind is there because garbage movepool. Bug Buzz is your strongest STAB option. Round because movepool is garbage again but could work in LC Doubles if that will exist someday(?). Overall, it's pretty damn bad ngl. Ice Scales+Eviolite can let it act as a solid special wall I guess, and Heavy-Duty Boots removes SR weakness but makes it die against everything else lol. Choice Specs for the, uh, the power I guess. Garbage typing, low speed, mediocre offensive stats even for a LC mon, crappy movepool, dies to stealth rocks.

"Tank"
Snom @Eviolite
Ice Scales
252 SpD 236 HP 12 Def
IVs:0 attack if running Struggle Bug.Max everything else
Careful/Calm
Skitter Smack/Struggle Bug
Mirror Coat
Sleep Talk
Rest
Skitter Smack or Struggle Bug are stab that lower SpA.Mirror Coat is the crux of this set,used to bounce back special attacks.Rest recovers HP and can remove status.Sleep Talk helps it not be fodder while asleep.The EVs are for bulk.Ice Scales is the better ability,increasing Special Defense.Eviolite helps it get more bulky.EVs may be bad,so be free to criticise this set.
