I want to make a trick room team for PU, but I can't really find a good trick room setter. What should I use?

If it helps, I would prefer something not too bulky, so I can pull of trick room then die to send out more Pokemon. I don't want to switch, really, because it breaks focus sash and ruins setup :P

Runerigus is really good I think, and can always use Memento if you want a free switchin.
I'm pretty sure Trick Room isn't good. Just use Ribombee's sticky webs if you want speed control.
Yeah trick room sucks in PU.
true trick room sucks in pu
I agree with IAH that you should just use webs, as that can enable slower bois like guzzlord.

I would recommend Whimsicott.
(you can also use aromatisse as 2nd option)
Whimsicott brings you Trick room (guarnteed with focus sash), prankster memento and frailness.
You also can use taunt to stop hazards and set up on your face. You can use last move as attacking move such as moonblast. Here's a set for you:

Whimsicott @ Focus Sash
Ability: Prankster
EVs: 252 SpA / 252 Spe
Hasty Nature
IVs: 0 HP / 0 Atk / 0 Def / 0 SpD
- Moonblast
- Memento
- Taunt
- Trick Room

But honestly, as the comments said, for speed control use webs. Trick room isn't very good in PU (or any other tier except smogon doubles)
I'm not saying tr is bad, but it's not very viable yet has its niche.
Hope I helped!

Prankster Whimsicott still has negative priority using Trick Room.
True, thanks.
Thanks! I'll still try, but it's true that it never seemed much good in PU.
there's nothing wrong in trying. You might prove all of us wrong :D
and you're welcome!
I figured I would try this:

Aggron @ choice band
Rock Head
EVS: 252 Atk, 252 Def
+Atk, -spe
IVs:  0 spe
Head Smash
