Mantyke

Stats
HP: 45
Attack: 20
Defense: 50
Special Attack: 60
Special Defense: 120
Speed: 50

Type: Water / Flying

Description: Now you're probably wondering, why would you ever consider using Mantyke outside of Little Cup? Multiple reasons. Is it a gimmick? Maybe. Is it fun when it works? Oh hell yes. For starters, Mantyke has the same Special Defense stat as Arceus, and said stat is further boosted by Eviolite. So what purpose could this little guy possibly serve? He can function as a solid special wall and stop Special boosters.

Set #1: The Great Wall
Item: Eviolite
Ability: Water Absorb
EVs: 252 HP, 4 Def, 252 SpD
Nature: Calm ( + SpD, - Atk )
Moveset:
Confuse Ray
Haze
Scald
Substitute

Set Explanation: This is a beautiful little gimmick and it can surprise a lot of people. With Eviolite and EV investment, Mantyke's Special Defense becomes insane. If an opponent is on a sweep, tank an attack and use Haze to clear out any boosts. Confuse Ray if you get the chance, Sub and Scald for a possible burn chance. Mantyke is basically there as an emergency sweep stopper. When it works, people get mad as all hell.

Other Options: There is no other reason to use Mantyke in OU. If you want to try attacking sets, go to Little Cup. If you absolutely need an attacking variant, look no further than his evolution Mantine.

~Updated with a one moveset analysis.

And yes, I actually managed to make Mantyke work in XY OU. He's caused multiple forfeits from people raging over how their Special moves failed to even do 40% damage.
