Move 1: Recycle
Move 2: Doom Desire
Move 3: Earth Power

Item: Iapapa Berry
EVs: 248 HP / 64 Def / 40 SpA / 88 SpD / 68 Spe
- EV and Nature come from Jordy's sample because I'm a lazy git.
- Recycle allows for Iapapa Berry to be reused many times in a match.
- Earth Power for STAB, Toxic and Defog provide support. Substitute as a 'maybe' relating to shenanigans self-triggering Iapapa healing.
The above list is short because I imagine we don't need a ma-hoo-sive list every time we decide to discuss the validity of DD/EP... and by the end of this, Toxic and Defog as well, methinks. The move I actually want to focus on is Recycle here.
Obviously of the recovery moves which can provide instant returns, Recycle is the weakest and the least reliable - but on a Pokemon with bulk like CAP26, I think it has the potential to still be really quite powerful, hence this submission. We don't have Gluttony to abuse this with, but I can see CAP26 getting several heals out of Recycle fairly consistently, especially with some of the attacks we're potentially switching into merely scratching us. As workable around as this is (something like a 35% Hit onto CAP26 when it can't heal through Lefties is definitely plausible to KO it), and as much as I do think that this sort of Healing would give CAP26 more opportunities to hit things with Doom Desire, I want to make sure we test the water on 'is this too close to recovery options for us to risk, following the borkedness we've seen from the test server of regular recovery?'.
