Hello Rock types, Hello Steel types, Hello Ghost types...

3 normal moves on one poke isn't the best idea

I think the standard has HP Ground over one of the normal attacks (QA not included)

Oh yeah, forgot HP Ground for a second. I was thinking something was amiss.

Swellow (F) @ Choice Band

Another top-of-the-head idea.

Nature- Brave/Lonely/Adamant/Naughty

Aerial Ace
Facade
HP Ground
Toxic (Or anything you want)

Aerial Ace is the best move I could find for Swellow for STAB unfortunately but use that to get a clean cut off of the enemy ALL of the time. Facade is also there for STAB, but you get an extra bonus considering that it has Guts and Facade's power is boosted, along with Swellow's attack power.

HP Ground can serve a little bit as a defense against Electric, Rock, and Ice type Pokemon. And Toxic... Well I just put that in there.

You can be the first to experiment this if you want. It should turn out a little efficient.

That's just the standard with toxic over quick attack ._.

Quick attack would prolly be better due to reversalers and such.
