[SET COMMENTS]

  • swords dance plus speed boost should be threatening
  • flare blitz is a great stab move off 85 base attack. sky uppercut no so much
  • protect for speed boosts or shadow claw to kill Slowking
  • life orb so you do more damage.
  • adamant because you are speed boosting.
[ADDITIONAL COMMENTS]

  • lots of hazard support
  • wynaut is useful
  • eviolite if you want more set up opportunities.
  • grass types such as roselia help against slowbro and other water types.
[Other Options]

  • blaze and more moves
  • mixed set
  • sub
  • toxic
[Checks and Counters]

  • slowking
  • QUAGSIRE
  • bulky waters

slowking* in checks/counters and i still think tentacool doesn't beat anything, even something as bad as combusken

aside from that, bulky waters in general should do the trick
