Despite of Zebstrika's base 100 Attack stat, Zebstrika should be used more as a special attacker since its physical movepool is undesirable. A Modest/Timid natured one is what you should aim for, preferably the former since it already has that impressive base 116 speed stat.

If you have Sap Sipper, running a physical attacking set would be somewhat viable, but a special attacker set would still be the superior choice.
