here's what I'm thinking:
This pokemon is likely going to wind up in UU or maybe even OU due to the ability to threaten many frail scarfers. Fears Bisharp's sucker Punch, but thats about it.
Let's be honest. There is no "good moveset" for Regieleki.

This thing's movepool is complete garbage...

Regieleki @ Choice Specs
Ability: Transistor
EVs: 4 Atk / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
Hasty Nature
- Thunder Cage
- Volt Switch
- Ancient Power
- Extreme Speed

Thunder Cage + Transistor + Specs will be KOing opponents one after the other, it's incredibly powerful. Volt Switch can do a ton of damage as well, and makes Regieleki a nice pivot. Ancient Power is because Regieleki's movepool is incredibly shallow. Extreme Speed doesn't fit too well with the set, but it can be used if you need a bit of priority, and this Regi just doesn't have much else.

Regieleki @ Choice Specs

Modest Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Electro Ball
- Ancient Power
- Hyper Beam
- Volt Switch

Ugh. This thing has an awful movepool. However, the only moves you really need are Electro Ball and Volt Switch. This may be controversial, but I think this is the best Toxapex check we have ever seen, with Specs Transistor Stab Electro Balls destroying everything, or using the annoying starfish as momentum with VS. Ancient Power is there for coverage, Hyper Beam to go out with a bang.

Regieleki @ Normal Gem
Ability: Transistor
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 SpA / 4 Spe
Naughty Nature
- Thunderbolt
- Extreme Speed
- Ancient Power
- Acrobatics

Yeah not much to work with again. Extreme Speed is only for acro. Ancient Power is coverage. Yeah

Utility. Reflect and Light Screen are good, Rapid Spin removes hazards, Volt Switch to pivot

Enjoy the movesets! :D

Regieleki @ Choice Specs
Ability: Transistor
EVs: 4 Atk / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
Hasty Nature
- Thunder Cage
- Volt Switch
- Ancient Power
- Explosion

It has a terrible movepool, so we have come to a point where Specs + Explosion must be done :P

Thunder Cage wears down walls, and it does great damage alongside Transistor, Choice Specs, and STAB. Volt Switch is for pivoting, and, again, it's great with Specs, STAB, and Transistor. Ancient Power because it basically has nothing else -_- . Explosion is pivoting when it's at low health.

Yes I know this is very similar to the other sets but again it gets nothing better -_-

This thing's movepool is so garbage...
Regieleki @ Focus Sash
Ability: Transistor
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Modest Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Agility
- Electro Ball
- Ancient Power
- Protect

Focus Sash gaurantees you set off an Agility. Electro Ball is STAB, gets boosted by Transistor, and has more power when the Pokémon using it is faster. Ancientpower because well... its movepool sucks. You could run Protect for the last move.

*agility, not ability.

Also, why Volt switch if you're running Electro Agility?

Regieleki @ Choice Specs
Ability: Transistor
EVs: 4 Atk / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
Hasty Nature
- Electro Ball
- Volt Switch
- Explosion
- Thunder Cage
Electro ball allows it to do large damage with its amazing 200 base speed. Volt switch is just a pivot, and thunder cage is if they outspeed you, or it does little damage cause they have almost as much speed. Explosion in a last ditch attempt to nuke them, as its shallow movepool doesn't allow much else.

This is the same moveset I use and I think it's great!

Special here and there. Wynaut physical
Regieleki @ Life Orb
Ability: Transistor
EVs: 232 HP / 252 Atk / 24 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Extreme Speed
- Explosion
- Wild Charge
- Rapid Spin/thunder wave
EVs add longevity and 24 is all it needs to outspeed pheromosa. Explosion since you are the fastest will do tons of damage with life orb when you are about to die Rapid spin removes hazards and allows it to negate sticky web speed lowering. Thunder wave can cripple others

by
Pretty sure you need 28 Speed EVs to outspeed Pheromosa. Did the calc on PS and Pheromosa has 223 Speed at Lv50 with +Speed nature and 252 Speed EVs, and if you give Regieleki 24 Speed EVs, it *also* has 223 Speed (So speed tie).
At Level 100 it outspeeds with this spread by 1.
Regieleki *could be* outsped by Choice Scarf users, or if the foes have their spped raised.

Regieleki @ life orb
Ability: Transistor
EVs: 4 Spe/ 252 SpA / 252 HP
Modest Nature
- Eerie impulse
- Rising voltage
- Ancient Power
- Volt switch

I know what you are thinking but 252 in speed is not needed as it naturally outspeeds most Pokemon without boosts in speed or choice scarf, so invest in hp instead as it needs all the bulk it can get as its so frail.
Eerie impulse to reduce damage output on any threatening special attackers on the other team.
rising voltage as paired with an electric terrain setter eg tapu koko or pincurchin can pack an enormous punch.
ancient power if you are feeling lucky and for coverage. Volt switch for evacuating dangerous situations whilst still dealing STAB damage.

Regieleki's moveset is so bad, it doesn't have many decent attacking moves, so this set makes use of its Speed to set up screens and get rid of entry hazards

This is literally the exact same as my set, except you have a different nature and EV spread.

Bad movepool and garbage defenses make this Pokemon look like the perfect definition of a glass cannon, especially due to its 80/50/50 bulk compared to its 100/100/200 offenses. But nevertheless, we can still make this thing work.

Electric Terrain Sweeper

Regieleki @ Choice Specs
Ability: Transistor
Nature: Modest (+SpA, -Atk)
EV Spread: 4 Def/252 SpA/252 Spe
- Rising Voltage
- Volt Switch
- Ancient Power
- Hyper Beam

Regieleki has almost everything on paper, ranging from its stats, a stupidly powerful Electro Ball, ability Transistor, and the potential of a Specs set. This set aims to bring Regieleki in after a Volt Switch from Tapu Koko, who sets up Electric Terrain and opens up Regieleki's sweeping capability. Rising Voltage in Electric Terrain does a holy 709 base damage (70 BP x STAB x damage double from E-Terrain x general E-Terrain boost x Transistor x Specs) and will almost always OHKO anything that is weak to it. Electro Ball is inconsistent on Regieleki due to varying speed tiers, which is why Rising Voltage is the place to go. Volt Switch gets you out of sticky situations such as Ferrothorn and Dragapult and has a considerable BP too. Ancient Power hits Ice and Fire types that Regieleki may not be able to OHKO. Hyper Beam is used for hitting Ground types, and despite the recharge drawback, it is your only practical option for hitting them and praying for a KO.

Regieleki is completely destroyed by Ground types. It has some of the most embarrassing 2HKO records with Hyper Beam on Pokemon like 0 HP/4 SpD Garchomp and 0 HP/0 SpD Landorus-T even with all the multipliers, meaning it has a hard time dealing with them. One Earthquake from either of the two are easy KOs as well. Another thing Regieleki struggles with are priority moves. Bullet Punch from Scizor, Sucker Punch from Bisharp, Aqua Jet from Barraskewda, Mach Punch from Conkeldurr - you name it, Regieleki dies to it. Regieleki has literally no way to deal with these priority users unless it uses a priority move of its own, in which it only has Extreme Speed. We're not using that move, however, and so Regieleki is completely destroyed by them.

Banded Physical Attacker

Regieleki @ Choice Band
Ability: Transistor
Nature: Adamant (+Atk, -SpA)
EV Spread: 252 Atk/4 Def/252 Spe
- Extreme Speed
- Wild Charge
- Assurance
- Volt Switch

Banded Regieleki isn't the best set, but now we have a way to counter priority users. Extreme Speed can help dent frail Pokemon that rely on priority, like Barraskewda. Wild Charge is probably as far as you can go for a physical Electric move on Regieleki, so despite the recoil we have to embrace it. Assurance deals with the ghost types who wall E-Speed and don't mind taking a hit from Wild Charge, although its usage on this set can be quite questionable. Volt Switch is obvious since you're choiced, and it'll be handy to escape bad matchups.

This set doesn't need to worry about priority users, but it still needs to worry about Ground types. Unfortunately, you're even more hopeless with this set than the first one, since we can really only hit them effectively with ESpeed.

Spinball

Regieleki @ Normal Gem
Ability: Transistor
Nature: Timid (+Spe, -Atk)
EV Spread: 48 Atk/208 SpA/252 Spe
- Rapid Spin
- Electro Ball
- Acrobatics/Extreme Speed
- Volt Switch

After looking through the answers on this thread, I found one with Normal Gem, which I thought was fairly creative. Then I learned that Regieleki is one of two Pokemon that can learn both Rapid Spin and Electro Ball (the other being Morpeko). Since Rapid Spin got buffed and boosts speed this generation, why not give it a try? Clear entry hazards, raise your speed, and use up your Normal Gem all in one usage of Rapid Spin, which puts you in a good spot to fire off with Electro Ball the turn after. Using up Normal Gem turns Acrobatics into a base 110 move that hits Grass types like Ferrothorn and Tangrowth effectively, while Extreme Speed outplays priority users and can be used to hit Prankster users like Grimmsnarl and Whimsicott for nice damage before they can set up screens. Volt Switch is an essential on Regieleki, because if it can't pivot it isn't gonna fare well against hyper offensive teams.

This set gets checked by Ghost types who Regieleki is (often) forced to Volt Switch out on, Ground types who can use Regieleki's RS turn to just Earthquake it, and bulky attackers who like setting up in Regieleki's face. This set has not gone under any testing yet, so if you find it interesting and want to utilize it please do take care about its weaknesses.

Regieleki @ Choice Specs
Ability: Transistor (stupidly broken)
EVs: 252 SpA / 252 Spe / 4 HP
Modest Nature

  • Thunderbolt / Electro Ball
  • Volt Switch
  • Swift / Round
  • Ancient Power / Thunder Cage

Yeah so apparently it gets swift and round, cool I think. Both are weak but somewhat made up for via Choice Specs (also knows as fancy locking glasses.) Thunderbolt is consistent damage, Electro Ball to do heavy damage against slower targets like Toxapex and Blissey. Volt Switch is a must because it allows it to pivot. It is the fastest user of any switching moves, after all. Ancient Power is more coverage, Thunder Cage is strong, chips and traps foes.
