:sm/Lycanroc-Dusk:
Lycanroc-Dusk @ Psychium Z
Ability: Tough Claws
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Swords Dance
- Stone Edge
- Fire Fang
- Zen Headbutt

Simple lure, usually Bewear can threaten a neutral Lycanroc Dusk, but with Z-Zen headbutt (Shattered Psyche) Lycanroc is able to get rid of it with a OHKO.
252 Atk Lycanroc-Dusk Shattered Psyche (160 BP) vs. 0 HP / 4 Def Bewear: 388-458 (101.8 - 120.2%) -- guaranteed OHKO

Sneasel @ Fightinium Z
Ability: Inner Focus
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Knock Off
- Icicle Crash
- Ice Shard
- Dynamic Punch

The idea here is to bluff being locked into Knock Off or Icicle Crash on the banded set and then use the z-move to inflict a minimum of 99.4 - 117.2% to Bewear. It's also handy to hit steel type pokemon hard.

Nidoqueen @ Life Orb
Timid Nature
Ability: Sheer Force
EVs: 252 Spe / 252 SpA / 4 SpD
- Fire Blast
- Earth Power
- Sludge Wave
- Focus Blast


252 SpA Life Orb Sheer Force Nidoqueen Focus Blast vs. 4 HP / 0 SpD Bewear: 465-549 (121.7 - 143.7%) -- guaranteed OHKO
252 SpA Life Orb Sheer Force Nidoqueen Fire Blast vs. 4 HP / 0 SpD Fluffy Bewear: 425-500 (111.2 - 130.8%) -- guaranteed OHKO
 

Tsareena (F) @ Fairium Z
Ability: Queenly Majesty
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Rapid Spin
- Power Whip
- U-turn
- Play Rough

I like this mainly for mandibuzz, but it works great here as well:
252+ Atk Tsareena Twinkle Tackle (175 BP) vs. 4 HP / 0 Def Bewear: 476-562 (124.6 - 147.1%) -- guaranteed OHKO

All Tsareena's usual attacks fail to 2hko, and even the rare adamant HJK only has a 64.5% chance of doing that; Z-bewear especially can switch in pretty much for free if he predicts knock off or spin. This set turns the tables on that, with adamant outspeeding jolly bewear by 3 and OHKOing. I Opt for U-turn over knock off as it's more generally applicable and can be paired nicely with a pursuit trapper to still punish attempted spinblocks.

One of the nice things here is that it's normal for Tsareena to not be holding a self-reveal item like leftovers or life orb since she'll often be using a choice item or meadow plate; this makes the set less easily detected than the likes of rockium Z donphan where the lack of leftovers is a huge tell for those in the know.
