This is a Vgc 2017 spread: edited

Mandibuzz @ Psychic Seed
Ability: Overcoat
Level: 50
EVs: 236 HP / 4 Atk / 60 Def / 196 SpD / 12 Spe
Impish Nature
- Pluck
- Foul Play
- Tailwind
- Roost

Im running unique stat spread with a impish nature so pluck can eat confusion berrys thus halting recovery options for pokemon such as Arcanine or Snorlax, and giving mandibuzz instant 50% hp recovery with STAB chip damage. Using pluck as my Tech move I don't have to worry about the same issues as you do with Thief such as stealing a scarf or band and locking yourself into moves you may not want to use. This set is expecially bulky in both defense and special defense if the psychic seed is activated. The rest is pretty much standard mandibuzz with Roost Foul Play and Tailwind.

While the answer is no since berries aren't as common in UU as VGC, the question is why would you even use it over knock off? Knock off has much better utility.

Oh, and you need to ask mods to make threads.
