My Emboar has the following Set
Hammer Arm
Wild Charge
Head Smash
Flame Charge

Flame charge is for boosting speed up before using Hammer Arm so no recoil for speed.
Head Smash and Wild Charge are for coverage

Hammer arm should be brick break instead
Although I hesitate to perorate, I must also abstain from procrustean endeavors. Hence, I shall postprandially defenestrate all callipygous revenants, offering them as deodands, and return to my ctenophilia.

This is one I started with.

Emboar (M) @ Choice Band

  • Flare Blitz (STAB, Really Powerful)
  • SolarBeam (Covers Ground- and Water-Types) or Earthquake (Come on, the move kills)
  • Wild Charge (Covers Flying- and Water-Types)
  • Hammer Arm (STAB, Good Attack)

Item : Shell Bell ( The holder's HP is restored a little every time it inflicts damage )
Ability : Reckless
Nature : Adamant ( +Atk, -SpAtk )

  • Head Smash
  • Flare Blitz
  • Brick Break
  • Wild Charge

The damage of the move Head Smash, Flare Blitz, and Wild Charge will be increased by its reckless ability. Higher damage means higher recoil, but it will be covered by the Shell Bell item every time Emboar attack. When its Hp goes down use Brick Break to get some Hp before using recoil skill again.

i'm still a newbie to Pokemon but I think it may help you a little

Heat crash and hammer arm are for stab, just watch out for speed reduction on hammer arm. Scald can take out ground types, and grass knot is coverage for water types.

HellPig (M) @ Charcoal
Nature: Adamant
Ability: Blaze
Evs: 252 HP, 252 ATK, 4 DEF

  • Heat Crash
  • Minimize
  • Curse
  • Hammer Arm

You're gonna want a Pokemon with trick room so Emboar can go first and so the hammer arm speed drop just helps you out, minimize makes you more evasive and makes you lose weight so heat crash does more damage, charcoal up crash dmg, blaze ups dmg at low hp, curse brings up your dmg, Basically making it seem like your opponent just got hit by a jumbo jet.
