Substitute + Leech Seed is extremely hard to get past without a strong STAB or Super-Effective attack. Without the speed EVs given, you are always outsped by Timid Thundurus who can potentially get a Taunt in before your Substitute is up, and opposing Whimsicott who run max speed will out-do you anyway. If that isn't a concern, a much more bulky spread is 252 HP / 252 Defense / 4 SpD with a Bold nature, or alternatively 252 HP / 4 Defense / 252 SpD with a Calm nature is available. Doubles / Triples Tailwind Whimsicott @ Leftovers / Focus Sash / resist berry Bold / Timid Ability: Prankster 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SpD -Tailwind -Encore -Helping Hand -Taunt / Stun Spore / Trick Room Thanks to Prankster, Whimsicott is almost guaranteed to get Tailwind up. Whimsicott is also the fastest Encore user. Helping Hand is used to rediculously power up it's partner's attack. The final move is of course user preference; Taunt to shut down opposing setup Pokemon, Stun Spore to induce paralysis, and Trick Room to reverse the effects of Trick Room (which negates Tailwind). Other Options: Whimsicott has a plethora of utility options at it's disposal, making it slightly unpredictable for your opponent outside of just SubSeed. Should you feel the need to attack, your primary attacks should be Giga Drain or HP Fire, but if you want an attacking grass type, I recommend a different Pokemon. In a singles set it can run Cotton Guard to boost it's defenses to sky high levels, making it extremely hard to take down physically. In doubles and triples, Fake Tears is a great way for a special sweeper to net some very fast KOs. Doubles / Triples Partners: Since Whimsicott typically lacks offense at all, it needs partners that can attack, or help it stall. Any partner that has a strong Fire attack works great for taking down opposing grass types, and especially for taking down Ferrothorn is an asset. Whimsicott makes an excellent utility Pokemon in doubles and triples thanks to it's access to Tailwind, Encore, Helping Hand, and Worry Seed. Whimsicott works well on Rain teams, since under Rain it's weakness to Fire is negated. Check/Counters: Opposing Prankster users (namely Thundurus, Tornadus, and opposing Whimsicotts) can hit you with Taunt before your substitute is up, completely shutting you down; Tornadus can also hit hard with a SE Flying attack. Sets lacking Toxic are walled by grass types, and some grass are also poison types as well, rendering Toxic useless. Ferrothorn also stops you hard no matter what set you run.
