Ninjask (M) @ Focus Sash
Trait: Speed Boost
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 Spd
Hardy Nature
- U-turn
- Swords Dance
- Protect
- Baton Pass
nice, but you could replace support moves with night slash and aerial ace if you want him to act independently
Talonflame would wreck this little guy, speed don't matter with Gale Wings
And nobody uses Leech Life...
Exactly: leech life has same power as x-scissor, and recovers hp. PP is still good with 10

Ninjask
Adamant
Focus Sash
Speed Boost
- Fury Cutter
- Swords Dance
- Aerial Ace
- Night Slash

You would need to swords dance once, then spam fury cutter a few times for Ninjask to sweep. Towards the 3rd fury cutter, it can OHKO a Blissey..

I use this Ninjask set and it destroys.
Ninjask @ Focus Sash
Nature: Adamant
Ability: Speed Boost
EVs: 252 Attack, 252 Speed, 4 HP
Moves
X-Scissor for STAB and to wreck threats like Mega Alakazam
Aerial Ace for more STAB and gets rid of Mega Beedrill and Mega Pinsir
Double Team to make up for its defense
Swords Dance to raise attack
Double Team is the lead move. It should live at least one turn because of the Focus Sash. After two Double Teams, you should avoid lots of attacks. Use Double Team at least 4 times. After that, use Swords Dance for attack. Then, your Ninjask is ready to sweep!
Hope this helped!

STABmons = life


Lol (Ninjask) (M) @ Flyinium Z / Focus Sash
Ability: Speed Boost
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Swords Dance
- Precipice Blades
- Megahorn
- Dragon Ascent

STABmons (tier): Basically, in addition to its normal pool, your Pokemon can learn any move that it or its prior Evolution gets STAB from - status moves included. (Yes, this is a Smogon actual thing. After I first heard of this, I rapidly began gathering several evil ways to design movesets.) For example, you can also have a Scizor that knows Brave Bird and Magnet Bomb, thought I wouldn't necessarily recommend using them together.

Now enjoy basically what will be the silliest set I post today.

Ninjask @ Leftovers
Ability: Speed Boost
EVs: 252 HP / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Timid Nature (+Speed, -Special attack)
- Protect
- Baton Pass
- Substitute
- Swords Dance / Roost / Agility / Dig / X-Scissor /Any move you want

Start off with a Protect to get a free speed boost and know what your move your opponent will try to use. If you got a perfect switch-in, Baton Pass out and take advantage of the small speed boost on the switch in. If you don't have a good switch-in, use Substitute to set up a nightmare. If they instantly break your Sub, use protect to gain more speed and next move, use substitute again. You're at 62% of your health now with x3 speed (-50% from substitutes and +12% from Leftovers). You can choose to Protect + Sub once again but usually the x3 speed is enough to setup a sweeper, so now baton pass out and start sweeping.
Swords Dance, Roost or any of the other moves are for either finishing off an opponent that has like >10% of their health left, or for setting up extra if a Pokemon tried to use a status move on your Substitute or just doesn't break your Substitute with their attack. Bear in mind you can also choose to go for the Baton pass instead on that point to pass on not only the speed boost but also the substitute.

Leech Life to get some HP back for this frail bug. Swords Dance to boost its mediocre Attack stat. Dig as covergae, and Aerial Ace to hit Fighting, Grass and Bug type Pokemon.

Sweeper/Baton ninjask
Item: Focus sash ability: speed boost
EV: 252 Atk 252 Spe (don't put the last four anywhere)+Atk -any other really besides Spe
Moves: Swords dance, leech life, Baton pass, Acrobatics

On the first turn use swords dance and boost attack survive with focus sash and have a 110 power acrobatics. If you are against something that you know can kill you use baton pass. I suggest having bad Hp, Spd, and Def IVs so you will alway have to use the sash and acrobatics get boosted. Leech life is for extra STAB.

We don't need the characteristics, give us the IV's instead.
The characteristic is irrelevant, but so are IVs, since you just assume they’re all 31 unless otherwise stated. I’d spare this the down-vote.
Oh. The time I made this comment I knew nothing about competitive.
