If you'd like to post the set you gave as an answer, people can give feedback on it. I had to edit the thread so it fit standards, but here's what you wrote:

My current set is:
Beetle (Venipede) (M) @ Eviolite  
Ability: Speed Boost  
EVs: 236 Atk / 8 Def / 44 SpD / 220 Spe  
Adamant Nature  
- Pin Missile  
- Poison Jab  
- Skitter Smack  
- Protect  

Any ways to improve this set?

Venom Drench isn't a particularly good move, you might want to try Poison Jab instead for reliable STAB.
@Snorlx11 you do realize LC Pokemon are Level 5 and EVs work differently for level 5 Pokemon than level 100 Pokemon, right? If not, read this:

I know it's outdated, but it should help, as 252 EVs in LC wastes EVs.
@-MegaManectric-  Thanks for the link!
@Amethyst My Venipede is meant to come in, tank some hits and drop some stats. You can still use Poison Jab though, in replace for Skitter Smack

smol bug

Gen 8 LC

Venipede may have that nice ability Speed Boost, But that Ability Is already taken by Carvanha which Is a better user of Speed Boost, an Excellent 90 attack stat, Venipede can only carve Itself as an Abra Counter Which Diglett already has that Role, With Beat Up and an Excellent 95 Speed, BUT, Venipede Is not Unfortunate! It works as an Abra Counter which Is the GOD of LC, You can use your Multi-Hit move that is STAB Pin Missile, Combined with Life Orb, This Obviously kills Abra, With Speed Boost, You could also try and Attempt to Kill that Diglett That Is taking your Role as an Abra Counter!
Venipede @ Life Orb
Ability: Speed Boost
Level: 5
EVs: 36 HP / 236 Atk / 220 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Steel Roller
- Skitter Smack / Poison Jab
- Protect
- Pin Missile

Steel Roller Is for Grookey Who Is always spamming Grassy Glide. That could atleast Force Grookey to " Switch Out
Skitter Smack can also Work out To Sacrifice your Venipede and Lower the Abra's Threatening 105 Sp.ATK, It Is also STAB.
Poison Jab Is another alternative for a Grookey Counter, (No not really a Smart player would use Grassy seed Grookey.)
Protect Is To get a Speed boost because of your Venipede's Low Speed.
Pin Missile Like I said, It's an Abra Counter.

what a messy answer oops hhahahgahs
