Kricketot is one of the absolute worst Pokemon you can use. Please use anything else.

Kricketot @ Focus Sash
Ability: Shed Skin
Level: 5
EVs: 60 HP / 236 SpA / 188 SpD
Modest Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Struggle Bug
- Uproar
- String Shot
- Endeavor

Struggle Bug is STAB with a nice bonus effect. Uproar is one of the only other moves it actually gets. String Shot is absolute garbage but come on, this entire Pokemon is absolute garbage. Endeavor + Focus Sash can surprise something if you're very, very lucky.

All gens

Kricketot @ Focus Sash
Ability: Shed Skin (removes status and is the only Ability that has an effect)
Level: 5
EVs: 236 Atk / 236 Spe / 36 SpA, 36 Def, HP, or SpD if running Growl
Hasty / Jolly Nature*
- String Shot (double down dance with Growl or Struggle Bug)
- Endeavor (goes well with String Shot)
- Bug Bite (STAB that can steal berries)
- Struggle Bug / Growl (double down dance with String Shot)

*Use a Jolly Nature if you use Growl, use Hasty if you don't.
