My horrible attempt at a Zen Mode Darmanitan-Z set

I tried playing around to see if there was use at all for Darmanitan's Zen Mode ability. Sadly, this is the best I could muster.

Darmanitan (F) @ Chesto Berry
Trait: Zen Mode
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Atk / 252 Spd
Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)
- Belly Drum
- Rest
- Flame Charge
- Earthquake

Basically, Belly Drum + opponents attack/hazard gets it to -50% Hp and +6 Atk. Use Zen Mode's higher bulk to survive the next attack and use Rest + Chesto Berry to bring Darmanitan back to full power. Flame Charge is meant to ensure it doesn't get blitzed by a faster mon, and Earthquake is there cuz its Earthquake.

Very gimmicky, useless in a serious battle, but good results when it works out though(I managed to pull it off twice out of 10 battles lol)

Likes? Dislikes? Improvements? Should it just be killed with its own fire?

...You DO know Zen-Mode Darmanitan has Base 30 ATK right?

EDIT: Whoops misread. But still, that only works once. But Darmanitan-Z is pants regardless.
