What format?
If you're playing VGC right now, then you are playing with Series 8 rules. I edited the title to reflect this, since it will help date this question and its answers better.

According to a few of the good VGC players, the most viable Pokemon right now are Amoongus, shadow Calyrex, Dialga, Grimmsnarl, Incineroar, Kartana, Kyogre, therian Landorus, Lapras, Porygon2, Regieleki, Rillaboom, Solgaleo, and crowned Zacian.

A pair that I think is good is Indeedee (Female) and Duraludon. Here is a moveset for both of them.

Indeedee (Female) @ Leftovers
Ability: Psychic Surge
EVs: 252 Defense / 252 Speed / 4 HP
Timid Nature
- Psychic
- Dazzling Gleam
- Shadow Ball
- Helping Hand
This Pokemon is an offensive threat and can help Duraludon with helping hand.

Duraludon @ Assault Vest
Ability: Light Metal/ Stalwart
EVs: 252 Speed / 252 Special Defense / 4 HP
Modest Nature
- Flash Cannon
- Draco Meteor
- Thunderbolt
- Dark Pulse
This moveset uses the help from Indeedee to defeat any Pokemon in its path.

Naughty nature? That raises Attack and lowers Defense, making it useless on that Duraludon set. Maybe something like Modest, and perhaps some Special Attack investment?

Sorry if I'm not understanding something here.
Thank you Gladion, I put down the wrong nature on accident.
Why would you use Duraldon when you can use Dialga?
