Probably unconventional, but this set looks fun.

Zigzagoon-Galar @ Flame Orb
Ability: Quick Feet
Level: 5
EVs: 116 Atk / 188 SpD
Careful Nature
- Taunt / Protect
- Trick
- Parting Shot
- Facade / Knock Off

The crux of this set is the Flame Orb, even though Zigzagoon-G doesn't have Guts. When statused, Quick Feet comes into play, making Zigzagoon faster. You can then Trick the Orb away onto another Pokemon, to cripple them and possibly give you an advantage by giving Zigzagoon something good, like an Eviolite. Taunt stops other Taunters, or you can go with Protect for a free turn for the Flame Orb to activate. Parting Shot further cripples an opponent, and allows Zigzagoon to switch to a teammate better suited for offense. Facade is STAB boosted by the burn. Knock Off is also STAB, and while its power will be reduced by the burn, it isn't meant to do that much damage, simply remove annoying items.

Under no circumstances should you perform this strategy on a Pokemon with Guts (Larvitar, Machop, Shinx, Timburr, or Tyrogue), and it's also not a very good idea to use it on defensive Pokemon like Mareanie and Vullaby, as they're more hindered by paralysis.

Zigzagoon-Galar @ Toxic Orb
Ability: Quick Feet
Level: 5
EVs: 52 HP / 196 Atk / 28 Def / 28 SpD / 196 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Knock Off
- Body Slam
- Seed Bomb
- Gunk Shot / Parting Shot

Knock Off is STAB and cripples abundant Eviolite users. Body Slam is also STAB and has a chance to paralyze. Seed Bomb / Gunk Shot are general coverage, but Parting Shot can be used as helpful utility.
