because it does when I did it on PO with torkoal? but it says other pokemon lowering it's stats did i simply not notice the stat drop?

told ya! But If it worked torkoal would be uber
Not necessarily Uber, but maybe OU
If a pokemon has a Base 140 STAB move with no downside, it can really make some noise at the OU tier, and with Groudon in Uber, it can rely on Groudon's Drought with this move, and sweep.

Yes. Abilities like white smoke and clear body don't protect you from self inflicted stat drops.
