The way I see it, with somebody as slow as Numel, but with the attacking prowess he has, Trick Room is probably the best way to go. Brave nature should see to it he goes first. Earthquake is for general STAB goodness with Howl. Return gives neutral coverage, and Fire Blast or Lava Plume depends on whether you want the power or want to attempt to burn things.
Just an idea.
The EV spread 36 HP / 196 attack / 36 def / 236 spat maximizes both of your offenses, while evening your defenses. And with 0 IV in speed it has a speed of 8. Too bad it can't learn Curse according to serebii...
