So I took a second look at Basculin when my Ampharos team started going downhill, and I was frankly shocked at what I found. CB Adamant Basculin with Aqua Tail OHKOs all non-Sturdy SR leads save Regirock. Standard 252 HP Piloswine takes a clean OHKO, and Max/Max Impish Armaldo also falls to it cleanly, no Stealth Rock necessary for either. Aqua Tail also nabs a clean 2HKO on Misdreavus and just manages a 2HKO on 240/252 Musharna after Stealth Rock or Spikes.
Really thinking of doing an entirely new team with Basculin. I really underestimated that thing. Are we allowed to ladder with different alts for different Pokemon? If not, I'll just do it for the information rather than the accolades.
EDIT: Thank you Incon. Laddering under the alt Begging for Mercy for Basculin. I've also found that, unless your opponent runs Regirock or Gigalith, you can stop all SR leads between Basculin and Fraxure.
PS! Alts: WolfLink, EonADS, Her Voice Resides, Begging for Mercy(RG #8 test alts), Across the Line, TheLastAmmunition
