Pokemon Sun/Moon Toxapex Competitive Moveset!

Toxapex is an AMAZING new Pokemon, arguably the strongest new non-legendary or Ultra Beast. In fact, with the correct moves, it could take on Lunala and Solgaleo themselves!
First, there are multiple ways to use Toxapex - hazards set up with Toxic Spikes, a setup staller, or a hit taker with only 3 weaknessess!
But alas, we are still restricted to 4 moves among other changes in Alola, so here's my recommendation:
@ Black Sludge
252 HP, spread Def and SpDef as best for your team
This set requires a Toxic Spiker unless you'd rather run Baleful Bunker over Scald. But an answer to Steel-types is necessary, so Scald is vital.
Thanks for checking this out, and good..
