Physical sweeper!

Item: Heat-rock/Life-orb/Leftovers
Ability: Flower-gift
Nature: Jolly
EVs: 252 Attack, 252 Speed, 6 Hp

Sunny-day or Swords-dance

Seed-bomb or Bullet-seed


Nature-power (Earthquake)

Flower-gift boosts the teams Attack and S.Defense by 50%, that includes Cherrim, so it can be used in a single battle! With Jolly its Attack goes up to 324 which is pretty good! Sunny-day is in-case you do not have Sun-support, otherwise go with Swords-dance. Seed-bomb is STAB, but if you want to have a move to beat Subs, Sashes, and Sturdy then use Bullet-seed. Return is good neutral coverage. Nature-power becomes Earthquake in PO/Wi-fi battles so it is great coverage.

Gen. V

EVs -- 252 Sp.Atk., 252 Speed, 6 HP

Sunny Day
Solar Beam
Weather Ball (150 Base SP. Fire attack w/ Sun)
Morning Sun

This Cherrim's Job is to set up sun and then hit like a truck. it's ability I find only useful for the special defense boost. But since this Pokemon needs Sunny Day weather Ball provides amazing type coverage and access to a very strong move in sun. Morning Sun's hp recovery also is boosted by sun

I doubt sunny day is good on this, but I've never used cherrim. Not sure how you have 510 Ev's instead of the max 508 but ok. Also, weather ball doesn't double in power until gen 8.
You can have up to 510 EV points, but the last two don't do anything
