This was a set posted on the Swalot thread that needed to be moved.

Gulpin @ Focus Sash
Ability: Sticky Hold
EVs: 196 HP / 12 Atk / 196 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Yawn
- Destiny Bond
- Explosion
- Encore

Summary: This set is pretty annoying if used correctly, and if you can predict and outwit your opponent. Focus Sash is to help Gulpin survive from a move that would OHKO him. First you should set up a Destiny Bond, if you decide to go for a Yawn next, it can put your opponent at a huge disadvantage, as your opponent either has two options: Either switch out, or stay in. Its a win win situation for you either way. If your opponent's Pokemon stays in and decides to faint Gulpin, then Destiny Bond will activate, fainting that Pokemon in the process. If your opponent's Pokemon decides to stay in and set up a Swords Dance or any other set up, then Gulpin can either Encore or explode, depending on the situation and Pokemon. If your opponent decides to switch however (and you predict the switch) you can Yawn or explode.
