[OVERVIEW]
While it has some interesting quirks, such as a water immunity in Storm Drain and an alright Speed tier, Plasmanta is completely outclassed by other Electric-types like Rotom-Heat. Plasmanta has no way of getting past relevant Ground-types such as Seismitoad, Dugtrio, and especially Equilibra due to its lacking coverage and commonly blocked STAB combination. It is also outclassed as a Poison-type by Mollux, as it has neither the bulk nor recovery to act as a consistent switch-in against Fairy-types like Kerfluffle and Jumbao.

[SET]
name: Life Orb
move 1: Sludge Bomb
move 2: Discharge
move 3: Dazzling Gleam
move 4: Aura Sphere
item: Life Orb
ability: Storm Drain
nature: Timid
evs: 4 HP / 252 SpA / 252 Spe

[SET COMMENTS]
This set aims to nail oncoming Pokemon with Plasmanta's decently strong STAB attacks, with Discharge chosen over Thunderbolt for the increased paralysis chance without affecting matchups against Corviknight and Mandibuzz, while also utilizing coverage to catch foes on the switch like Dragapult, Hydreigon, Colossoil, and Excadrill. Despite this, this set is blocked completely by Equilibra and Seismitoad, and Rotom-Heat is an infinitely better choice as an Electric-type attacker due to Levitate and a powerful STAB that can get past Equilibra in Overheat.
