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.

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.

Bouncy Regichurro (Regieleki) @ Life Orb
Ability: Transistor
EVs: 244 Atk / 252 SpA / 12 Spe
Rash Nature

  • Rising Voltage
  • Volt Switch
  • Explosion
  • Electro Ball

This set is absolutely heat with Tapu Koko, it's just destroying the whole world with Rising Voltage. While people would question using Tapu Koko in AG/Ubers, I'm perfectly fine running it. This is because Tapu Koko is actually decent Defogger, one the fastest one and gets good pivoting move such as U-Turn, and really good utility moves like Taunt, Defog, Roost however it's frailty can't be ignored. Also, Tapu Koko's STAB Dazzling Gleam covers one of Regieleki's main weakness—Zygarde. Rising Voltage does crazy damage in Electric terrain, while Electro Ball totally annihilates slow stally mons. Volt Switch is for switching while Explosion is your last resort move.


Calculations

VS Necrozma-Dusk-Mane
- 252+ SpA Life Orb Transistor Regieleki Rising Voltage (140 BP) vs. 252 HP / 4 SpD Necrozma-Dusk-Mane in Electric Terrain: 489-577 (122.8 - 144.9%) -- guaranteed OHKO

This is the standard Necrozma-Dusk-Man set in AG, since it's physically Defensive. For Ubers, now since Sword Dog is banned, NDM should be specially defensive. However, this doesn't change things a lot.

  • 252+ SpA Life Orb Transistor Regieleki Rising Voltage (140 BP) vs. 252 HP / 252+ SpD Necrozma-Dusk-Mane in Electric Terrain: 360-425 (90.4 - 106.7%) -- 75% chance to OHKO after Stealth Rock

Even if it survives, it can't OHKO you. As it needs to check Xerneas, it would be running Sunsteel Strike over Earthquake.

VS Calyrex-Shadow

  • 252+ SpA Life Orb Transistor Regieleki Rising Voltage (140 BP) vs. 0 HP / 0 SpD Dynamax Calyrex-Shadow in Electric Terrain: 530-624 (77.7 - 91.4%) -- 31.3% chance to OHKO after Stealth Rock

Did you... just realize?? It's Dynamax, and still it deals like 2OHKO!!! Un-Dynamaxed, poor Calyrex-Shadow, bye bye!

VS Zacian-Crowned

  • 252+ SpA Life Orb Transistor Regieleki Rising Voltage (140 BP) vs. 0 HP / 0 SpD Zacian-Crowned in Electric Terrain: 469-554 (144.3 - 170.4%) -- guaranteed OHKO

VS Dynamaxed Kyogre!

  • 252+ SpA Life Orb Transistor Regieleki Rising Voltage (140 BP) vs. 0 HP / 4 SpD Dynamax Kyogre in Electric Terrain: 790-931 (115.8 - 136.5%) -- guaranteed OHKO

OHKOes Dynamax. Non-Dynamax won't likely stay to you.

VS Specially Defensive Yveltal

  • 252+ SpA Life Orb Transistor Regieleki Thunderbolt vs. 252 HP / 252+ SpD Yveltal in Electric Terrain: 499-588 (109.4 - 128.9%) -- guaranteed OHKO

Well, it will certainly never come to you after seeing this calculation LOL.


Good partners:

  • Kyogre can cleanly come up and clear up Groudon and Zygarde, which are troublesome Ground-types for it. However, both Regieleki and Kyogre fell short to Ferrothorn, Eternatus and Chansey, who all are cleared by Gothitelle. So, it can be a valuable partner for it.
  • Tapu Koko is almost needed for this set. I suggest a special attacking set, with Dazzling Gleam for Zygarde. It is advised to go U-Turn over Volt Switch, not because of the damage but since it's not walled by Ground types like Volt Switch.
  • As told already above, a trapping Gothitelle set can prove helpful. Here's one, for your convenience.

Gothitelle @ Leftovers
Ability: Shadow Tag
EVs: 248 HP / 56 Def / 204 Spe
Bold Nature
IVs: 0 Atk

  • Rest
  • Taunt
  • Charm
  • Cosmic Power
    **NOTE*: Shadow Tag is only allowed above Ubers. Well, it's just to make more obvious that this set is for AG/Ubers.

Other options:

  • 12 Spe so that you can outspeed Calyrex-Shadow and all of them at 439. You do are outsped by Scarf Kyogre, though. However, it's unlikely that they will stay considering most of Reigieleki's set outsped Scarf Kyogre. If you feel you don't have a solid Kyogre counter, go for 172 Atk / 252 SpA / 84 Spe. These EVs allow it to outsped Scarf Timid Kyogre.
  • Beware of Scarf Calyrex-Shadow, though. It outspeds all of your sets. Hence, a solid counter in form of Yveltal is particularly advantage for this set.

Thanks for reading.

Regieleki @ Light Clay
Ability: Transistor
EVs: 252 HP / 4 SpA / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Volt Switch
- Electroweb
- Light Screen
- Reflect

Well, this is a vgc set. I realized after watching some Wolfe glicke videos that it's a good screener, and you like Grimmsnarl can hit dark types and electric types with speed control, as well as almost always moving first with screens. I've run into some of these myself and dang are they annoying
Anyway, on to the set. You have dual screens obviously, and volt switch to pivot out into something else after setting it up, or as I like to do, pair it with a WP Pokemon weak to it and trigger it yourself. Electroweb can also slow down opponents who are fast, and works as good Speed control, as well as spread damage.

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.

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

Enjoy the movesets! :D

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 -_-

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.

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.

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

Modest Nature
- Eerie impulse
- Rising voltage

- 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.

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.

Independent Terrain Sweeper

Regieleki @ Focus Sash
Ability: Transistor
Natue: Modest (+SpAtk|-Atk) [or Timid (+Spe/-Atk) to out speed some scarfers]
EVs: 252SpA | 252Spe | 4HP

  • Electric Terrain: To setup
  • Rising Voltage: STAB + Utilize Terrain Boost Most Effectively
  • Volt Switch: Pivot Switch
  • Hyper Beam: Not much of an option but may act as last resort!

Poor movepool with no practical coverage at all + Ultra low defenses = Expect OHKO almost every time!

With ultra high base speed stat, it will out speed almost everything. Utilize this fact, to OHKO others before they knock you out. Setup Electric Terrain to increase the effective power of Rising Voltage to a massive 210 which is further boosted by the ability Transistor. Use Volt Switch against bulky Electric, Grass and Dragon types to switch. Against Ground types, well, either die trying to KO with Hyper Beam or switch-out manually to probably a Flying or Levitating Pokemon.

Focus Sash is there to setup terrain. I prefer Modest nature to get that extra SpAtk boost as 200 base speed with max EVs/IVs will out speed almost all pokes anyways.

Tired of that Landorus-Therian, Garchomp, or Gliscor switching into your Regieleki and blocking its Volt Switch or absorbing its Thunderbolt? Well, there's a solution for that.

Also yeah, I mentioned Gliscor so this won't work in OU. Regieleki can keep being the pitiful, useless electric orb that is neutered by Ground types there. This works only in Nat Dex OU, or Nat Dex UU if you want to get rid of Krookodile and Zeraora.


Regieleki @ Normalium Z
Ability: Transistor
EVs: 4 Def / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
Modest Nature

  • Thunderbolt
  • Volt Switch
  • Hyper Beam
  • Swift / Round / Thunder Wave

This is a fairly standard Regieleki set. However, what makes this one different is that it can actually threaten Ground types! Yes, I didn't know it was possible either. Thunderbolt and Volt Switch are pretty standard. Even without Specs, they are both very strong. Hyper Beam with Normalium Z can turn into a powerful Breakneck Blitz that will 2HKO Landorus-Therian, Garchomp, and Gliscor after Stealth Rock, and hitting them is extremely easy, because only someone who is extremely stupid wouldn't bring in a Ground type against Regieleki. Swift or Round can revenge-kill Landorus-Therian after Rocks. Garchomp and Gliscor will survive Breakneck Blitz Hyper Beam, however not by that much, and you can take advantage of that with Stealth Rocks and a cleaner like Serperior. Regieleki can use its status as the fastest non-scarfed Pokemon in OU to use Thunder Wave and support its teammates.

Itll die after a mon tanks that breakneck blitz though
That's why predictions and switching out exists.

Thunderbolt is STAB and gets boosted by Transistor. Volt Switch is for pivoting. Rapid Spin clears away hazards on your side. Ancient Power because... why not. You could use Extreme Speed for priority revenge killing. Explosion can be used if you just want to... explode. The reason why this set has Heavy-Duty boots is so it won't be consistently worn down by entry hazards.

And Regieleki’s Special defense is horrible! 50 so there is no point investing EVs or your item to it. Use Focus Sash
