Whimsicott’s Prankster, along with the combination of Leech Seed, Substitute, and Protect, allows it to Leech Seed stall most non-Leech Seed Immune Pokemon, given that it can survive an attack. Protect can be used to scout for moves such as Trick and Taunt, with Prankster Substitute and Taunt serving to neutralize those threats respectively. Taunt also serves the purpose of preventing the use of recovery from the opposing Pokemon, with the option of Moonblast to help against Fairy-weak Pokemon that otherwise beat Whimsicott such as Poison Jab Kommo-o and Hydreigon.

An Occa Berry allows Whimsicott to set up on Fire-types in the tier such as Alolan Marowak and Centiskorch, with the spread of 248 HP and 152 Defense with a Bold nature serving to help Whimiscott tank a Flare Blitz from Thick Club Alolan Marowak, with the rest being put in Special Defense. Babiri Berry is another option, allowing Whimsicott to set up on Pokemon that use Steel-type moves such as Aegislash and Magnezone. An alternative spread of 248 HP / 140 Def / 120 SpD is used to tank moves such as Choice Specs Primarina's Moonblast and Choice Specs Magnezone's Flash Cannon.

When using Whimsicott, most positive matchups are won by using Leech Seed turn 1 and alternating between clicking Protect and Substitute. If you survive the first hit, Leech Seed stalling with Protect into Substitute will usually let you regain around 25% every two turns, allowing you to avoid all damage behind a Protect or a Prankster Substitute until the opposing mon has lost its HP. Protect can be used Turn 1 as well to check for mons using Trick such as Rotom or Togekiss, and clicking Prankster Substitute next turn will render their Trick worthless. Against Rotom-Heat, clicking Substitute on Overheat twice and then using Leech Seed is optimal. Whimsicott primarily struggles with Grass-types that are immune to Leech Seed, so Fire-Types such as Arcanine and Incineroar make great partners. Whimsicott, in return, helps with their weak matchups against Water-types such as Milotic and Primarina. Whimsicott also Struggles with Ice-types and Dark-types not weak to Moonblast such as Avalugg, Galarian Darmanitan, and Incineroar, making Fighting-types such as Sawk and Conkeldurr great partners. Whimsicott, in return, helps them against Fairy-types such as Primarina.

Whimsicott @ Occa Berry
Ability: Prankster
EVs: 248 HP / 152 Def / 108 SpD
Bold Nature

Lives 252+ thick club alowak flare blitz, and wins vs rotom-h because you sub T1 and leech t2 (survives -2 252+ modest specs with occa)
Whimsicott @ Babiri Berry
Ability: Prankster
EVs: 248 HP / 140 Def / 120 SpD
Bold Nature

Lives specs primarina moonblast and specs magnezone flash cannon, the defense with bold nature is just a dump but is still optimal
We've removed mention of Kebia as it's completely useless for anything outside of sawk. Make sure to remove cinderace and other irrelevant mentions for the current meta. Let me know if you need any help with this
 
solid analysis, here's a qc

We want to add a quick tutorial on how to use Whimsi here, so I'll write an example one. feel free to implement mine unless you want to paraphrase.

good analysis. unfortunately a bit wasn't updated fully but no worries, implement changes for QC 1/2
