Litwick/Elgyem give 1 SAtk EV
Pokerus doubles EV in-take
Macho Brace doubles EV in-take.
So you get 4 EVs per KO, which equates to one additional stat point.
Any Pokemon taking part in the battle gets experience points and EVs iirc.
Banded Adaptability Double Edge under Trick Room is the only way it'll be doing decent damage. You could try an Eviolite set with Heal Bell, Wish, Yawn and Toxic or some other gimicky moves if you really wanted to.
Realistically, it's heavily outclassed by a lot in NU, let alone higher tiers.
Thing is, once Eggy has been knocked down to half health or less, it most likely will die the next turn. It comes up to personal preference between Leaf Storm and Energy Ball, but I'm leaning towards LS. Thinking about it though, Protect is pretty mandatory. +2 stab Leaf Storm from a very fast...
The whole niche behind this is the Petaya Berry/Harvest. Exeggcutor is bulky enough to take a hit or two, then use Trick Room. If it's knocked down to half health, he gets a Satk boost and then the berry replenishes. Leftovers sort of ruins the purpose of it, and same with Giga Drain as Eggy...

Item: Petaya berry

Usually when something is banned, it's banned for over-centralising, yes, but also if it's deemed broken and makes the game unfair. I can see where you're coming from, and I agree to an extent, but it doesn't make a Pokemon trash necessarily. You can play strategically and use things like Magic...
1) Like Heath said, Ferrothorn works definitely, but consider Bronzong too. It has so many useful resistances for a Rain team, isn't too bothered by Fire moves in Rain, Screens, Hypnosis, etc.
2) Eh, Sableye. It won't last long against Starmie, but beats Donphan, Hitmontop, Forertress and all...
