yo it's phoopes (the name change is a long story lol), I was randomly stalking some VM walls and saw that you were setting up a Discord server for the old PL crew. I don't use Discord that much but count me in if it ended up happening!
it seems rather.. interesting, at the very least. i think that there are a few possibilities you can work with, but the best way to go about it imo is sub > eq and salac berry > eviolite. you do lose a bit of setup ability, but then again you have a guaranteed set-up on alomomola and other stuff you can force out, like regirock maybe. you also get the salac boost which lets you outrun even scarf rotom-a. even at +6 though, poliwhirl struggles with stuff like amoonguss (it only 2hkoes), carracosta, and other physically defensive grass-types etc.
it's a bit of a gimmicky set, but it's viable in the sense that it's usable, at the very least. you'd really need optimal conditions for it to work properly, though, especially since it has little use outside of trying to grab a set-up opportunity. :(
