This moveset is if you don't want to use Dig, Igglypuff's only Ground move:
Igglybuff @ Eviolite
Ability: Cute Charm
EVs: 232 Attack / 232 HP / 44 Spe
Lonely or Mild Nature
- Psychic
- Fire Blast
- Body Slam
- Play Rough

I made sure to make as many of them physical as possible(because of Cute Charm), while still having coverage, Psychic and Flamethrower are coverage moves to Poison and Steel, Igglypuff's two weaknesses. Dig covers both of them, but I've heard it been said that it's not a very good ground move.

Why Mega Kick when Body Slam is better?
Mega Kick is 35 BP Better, and Body Slam only has the paralyzing 30% chance, which I think doesn't make it better than a move that does almost 50% more damage. I understand Mega Punch to Body Slam, but not Mega Kick.
Mega Kick is not accurate
That is true, I'll make it just Body Slam

This moveset is if you're okay with using Dig
Igglybuff @ Eviolite
Ability: Cute Charm
EVs: 232 Attack / 232 HP / 44 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Dig
- Body Slam
- Mega Kick
- Play Rough

This moveset is for if you're okay with using Dig, which is the only move Igglybuff knows that covers both weaknesses. It also has all four moves with the Cute Charm effect, which is good.

Body Slam is better than  Mega Punch. Why Mega Kick when you have Mega Punch?
"It also has all four moves with the Cute Charm effect"

What do you mean? Cute Charm might take effect if the opponent hits you with a contact move, not the other way around.
Oh, guess I missed that, I'll fix both of these.
