Oricorio @ Choice Specs
Ability: Dancer
EVs: 4 Def / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
- Hurricane
- Revelation Dance
- Baton Pass
- Air Slash

Sensu is probably your best bet with this set, as Flying/Ghost attains excellent coverage. Baton Pass is preferred over U-Turn to avoid contact damage/status, because Oricorio has pretty bad attack. Air Slash can be used when more reliability is needed than Hurricane provides. Hidden Power could be an option in the last slot, but Oricorio doesn't hit much at x4 that resists both it's STABS, rendering it mostly useless.

... I was told Pom-Pom was best.
There are tons of other electric types that blow Pom-Pom away in terms of stats and movepool.
No, I once asked "What is the most recommended form for Oricorio?", and I was told Pom-Pom form was. Oh well, I recently just replaced my Pom-Pom Oricorio with Solgaleo.
I know, I was just commenting on the viability of Pom-Pom.
Baton pass isn't useful if you are locked into an attack with choice specs.
Yes it is. (filler)

Recommended for doubles;
Oricorio-Baile @Assault Vest / Leftovers
EV's 252 Sp. Atk 252 Sp. Def, 4 Atk.
Nature: Calm (+Sp. Def -Atk)

  • Revelation Dance (Duh!, I think this thing is gauranteed to get STAB from this move.)

  • Hurricane (Confusion, STAB)

  • Steel Wing (Coverage, really good for dealing with Rock-Types.)

  • Toxic / Calm Mind / U-Turn (U-Turn in case of the assault vest, calm mind and toxic if leftovers to make it annoying)

Ahh, yesss. Another waifu Pokemon. This is a special attacker, the assault vest makes it take less damage from sp. attacks, but you can just use calm mind for the leftovers.

Why Steel Wing with a Calm Nature? Wouldn't Hasty or Naive nature be better?
That's why the 4 Atk EV's are there, plus the swords dance from  a Leavanny really is good. (from the dancer ability it copies it)
Yes, RevDance guarantees STAB.

Oricorio (?/Flying) - Special Sweeper
Ability: Dancer
Timid Nature (+Spe, -Atk)
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spe
Item: Leftovers
-Teeter Dance / Substitute
-Calm Mind
-Air Slash
-Revelation Dance

Use Teeter Dance / Substitute to set up a Calm Mind or two. After that you can start sweeping.
Oricorio works quite well in doubles (with Volcarona + Quiver Dance for example).

Why would this be considered useful if you can't even tell the form?
Any form will do. People can decide which one they want to use.
Is it really that hard to figure out...
Will it make you happy if I edit it?
No. Because there is really no such thing as "Best form of Oricorio in competitive".
Ghost is actually better since it blocks Rapid Spin.
That is what I thought when I asked the question.
All Oricorio forms share the same stats and movepool, so form is not a huge deal since the different forms will likely be playing the same role.

Oricorio @ Sitrus Berry/ Focus Sash
Ability: Dancer
EVs: 252 SpA / 252 Spe / 4 Def
Timid/Modest Nature
-Revelation dance
-Air Slash
-Protect/ Feather Dance

I'd Recommend using this Pokemon with anyone that Quiver Dance (Ribombee & Masquerain) and are preferably faster because they can go for a quiver dance first turn, Dancer activates and both Pokemon get the Q-Dance boost and can also use an attack. I'd also use the Pom-Pom variant because it is the only one not weak to electric types, I would recommend the Baile style because he has no weakness to ice but he is weak to common attacks like Rock Slide.
