I am building a Gen 8 DUU TR team with V-Create Victini, and I need some TR setters for it. I play HO, so they should also be able to attack.

You'll probably get a better answer if you ask here: https://www.smogon.com/forums/threads/doubles-uu.3658504/
Why not use Aromatisse? It can harness Moonblast/Psyshock/Psychic as well as Wish-Protect defenses.

-Wish/Heal Pulse
-Trick Room

> Malamar is a decent trick room attacker, but is crushed by the various powerful U-turns in the tier, so it requires a thorough knowledge of the tier to play well.

Malamar fits your Trick Room attacking setup pretty well. I'm thinking Superpower, Knock Off, Trick Room, and ??

Mew can fill a lot of holes in any team if you need one
Reuniclus has solid coverage, hits hard, and has access to psyshock which damages based on defence, helping it break through special walls.

I think it's best to just teach trick room to your Victini and get another trick room abuser (like Scrafty) instead of getting another trick room user. Victini has high HP and physical attack and can learn some powerful moves. Its victory star lets teammates use less accurate moves and will probably win several of your battles without you ever noticing. These are the movesets that Smogon recommends I recommend.

Victini @ Figy berry
EVs: 248 HP / 252 Atk / 8 SpD
Brave nature
IVs: 0 Spe
- protect
- trick room
- V-create
- bolt strike

Scrafty @ Sitrus berry
Ability: intimidate
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 Def
Brave nature
- fake out
- knock off
- close combat
- dragon tail

I think he wants to use someone other than Victini for Trick Room
Victini is the main attacker in my team, so I can't just carry Trick Room on it. BTW, is Porygon2/Z good?
If you teach trick room to Victini, then that takes up one move slot. If you get a weaker trick room user, then that takes up 1 Pokemon slot and 4 move slots. I think the first option is less costly. Porygon2 is banned in DUU. Porygon-Z is more frail than Victini, has weaker moves, and can't lower its own speed.

We’ll I’m not too sure but maybe mimikyu even though he is a little hard to find but he has the ability disguise which is like a substitute he’s a ghost type so fake out can’t work on it . He’s kinda fast tho so maybe put a room service on him to lower his speed . He’s not really bulky but he only has 2 weakens. he’s a great attacker too.

-Trick Room
-Play rough
-Wood Hammer /Leech life
-Shadow Claw/Phantom Force

For the last 3 moves you can put whatever you want really maybe some cool status moves like double team , swords dance , hones claw or will-o-wisp . He also has priority and stab move shadow sneak .

If you’re not sure, why answer?
I just thought it would be useful.
