Kommo-o @ Choice Specs
Ability: Bulletproof
EVs: 4 Def / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Clanging Scales
- Focus Blast
- Flash Cannon
- Flamethrower

Clanging Scales is a nice move. No annoying SpA drops make it a bit more spammable than Draco Meteor. Flamethrower hits Steel types with more accuracy than Focus Miss, and Flash Cannon hits all the Fairies running around.

Kommo-o @ Life Orb / Focus Sash
Type : Dragon / Fighting
Ability : Overcoat
Nature : Jolly ( Spe+ Spa- )
EVs : 4 Hp / 252 Atk / 252 Spe

  • Dragon Dance
  • Dragon Claw / Outrage
  • Sky Uppercut / Brick Break
  • Earthquake / Poison Jab

Dragon Dance is a must on him to allow him to be a fast physical sweeper. It may be difficult to set up, but Kommo-o may force a switch against something it checks against. Focus Sash is there to Ensure that he makes a move before being KO'ed. Overcoat is a great ability for Kommo-o as when he hang on to Focus Sash or has few Hp left, he won't be affected by the weather. Bulletproof and Soundproof are options if you would like the immunity to moves like Shadow Ball or Bug Buzz. Outrage is STAB, so does Dragon Claw which is more reliable. Sky Uppercut is STAB, but Brick Break is an option if you want to break through Refects and Light Screens. Earthquake and Poison Jab are coverage.

I tried ok

Kommo-o w/ Life Orb/Focus Sash (or roseli berry if you like battle royals)
Ability: Soundproof/Bulletproof (both very solid abilities)
Nature: Adamant/Jolly
-Outrage
-Sky Uppercut
-Dragon Dance
-Poison Jab

I know Outrage confuses you after 2-3 turns of use but it's still really strong with the attack boosts from Dragon Dance + STAB. Sky Uppercut serves the same purpose, but instead of confusion, it isn't 100% accuracy. Poison Jab is a move that is really helpful if you ever come across a fairy type and don't have anything to switch in to; and I know that earthquake provides more type coverage, yet with a 4x weakness to fairy, it's always handy (especially in a sweep.)

If you can, try getting Safeguard. That way, Kommo-o can't be confused.

(Sweeper) Kommo-o

Item: Life Orb
Ability: Overcoat
Nature: Adamant
-Dragon Dance/Swords Dance
-Brick Break/Sky Uppercut
- Dragon Claw/Dragon Tail
-Poison Jab

If you want just a brute sweeper, then go for Swords Dance. However is you'd rather have it more balanced, then do Dragon Dance. Now, Brick Break has better accuracy but lower power, while Sky Uppercut had worse accuracy, but more power. I should also mention that Brick Break disables the Light Screen, or Reflect if one is up. So that could come in handy. Next, if one of your teammates/pokemon has Spikes, or Stealth Rocks, then Dragon Tail for sure. But if you don't, Dragon Claw is a great physical STAB move. Finally, Poison Jab. Haha, yeah... this is a must.

Kommo-o @ Weakness Policy
Ability: Soundproof/Bulletproof
Nature: Careful (+Sp. Def, -Sp. Atk)
252 Sp. Def/ 252 Atk/ 4 Def
-Sky Uppercut
-Dragon Claw
-Earthquake
-Swords Dance/Dragon Dance

Or

Kommo-o @ Assault Vest
Ability: Soundproof/Bulletproof
Nature: Careful (+Sp. Def, -Sp. Atk)
252 Sp. Def/ 252 Atk/ 4 Def
-Sky Uppercut
-Dragon Claw
-Earthquake
-Poison Jab

Kommo-o's attacks and defenses are pretty even naturally, so adding to the bulk can allow it time to set up against the opponent. The Weakness Policy will strengthen its attack as long as it's hit by a super effective attack, and if Kommo-o is made into an all out attacker, the Assault Vest can be used, because most of Kommo-o's weaknesses are special attackers, so the Assault Vest makes it easier to survive the attacks. Sky Uppercut and Dragon Claw are good damaging attacks and provide STAB. Earthquake is type coverage. Swords Dance can raise the attack stat, so Kommo-o can sweep easier. Dragon Dance can also raise attack (Not as much as Swords Dance) and raise speed to help Kommo-o out speed its opponents. Poison Jab can be used to deal with the Fairies.

One of my Favorites! Although not top in the chart...

First time posting a moveset, I'll try my best tho.

Agressive Suicide Physical Sweeper

Kommo-cidal (M) @ Life Orb
EV Spread: 252 Atk / 252 Spd / 4 Def
Nature: Adamant (+Atk/-SpA)
Trait: Bulletproof/Overcoat

  • Swords Dance;
  • Outrage;
  • Reversal;
  • EQuake/Rock Slide.

This set foccuses on going in, taking 1-3 enemies and then retiring, a reason why I maximized Atk and Spd obviously, you want to act first, take advantage of the solid Atk Stat he has, Buff it up with a Single Swords Dance and then select a Outrage for a STAB, Reversal for a Stab when low HP and EQuake for covering Electric Types or Rock Slide for Flying, although he shouldn't have much problem at KO'ing anything after he gets one Swords Dance out as his damage skyrockets. Bullet Proof is to protect him from some moves that could cause trouble, Overcoat if he is in a Weather Comp (Which should not be the case actually in my honest opinion), Soundproof should be kinda disregarded as there is not much "sound" moves in the game that are abused, but it's always an option too.

Bulky Kommo

Kommo-o (M) @ Weakess Policy/Leftovers
EV Spread: 252 Def / 252 SpD / 4 Atk
Nature: Careful
Trait: Bulletproof/Overcoat

  • Dragon Dance
  • Brick Break / Dragon Claw
  • Counter
  • EQuake / Rock Slide.

Careful nature for more SpD, which is to balance out his defenses, Weakness Policy is amazing to keep his offensiveness if you wish so, he becomes a great wall with a high damage output, slower than normal, but when he hits oh boy it hurts, Brick Break for passing through Protects and those kinds of stuff and Dragon Claw for dealing with other Drags and having another STAB, Counter is a great move overall, and as you probably won't go to low HP lands too much with this EV Spread then you can use more Counter's, Reversal is only good if you often find yourself with Low HP obviously and that is something that happends A LOT if you run the first Set, EQuake and Rock Slide for same reason as before, coverage, Dragon Dance here is better than Swords Dance, as you can often get 2-3 of these and go for a high Damage, High Speed and High Resistances Kommo-o, you basically get all the stats you need to survive and act fast while dealing damage. I put Leftovers for the item there for those who want consistency, it's not always that you'll get hit with a Superefective move to activate Weakness Policy, but I personally prefer the damage over the Sustaining Capacity, taking other Supportive Healer with you helps at staying long periods in the fight and building up Dances to come out and deal a mass of damage, sometimes even OHKO'ing enemies or 2HKO'ing them with DC or Brick Break/Counter.

Kommo-o @ Salac Berry
Ability: Soundproof
Evs: 252 Spe / 252 Atk / 4 Hp
Jolly Nature (+ Spe, -SpA)

Substitute
Belly Drum
Sky Uppercut/Brick Break
Dragon Claw/Poison Jab/Earthquake

Explanation: This is a Good Belly Drum-Salac Berry Sweeper set. The Ability Soundproof is Better than Bulletproof and Overcoat (HA) because You can't get Roared out of Battle. Substitute helps Set up A Belly Drum. Belly Drum raises Attack fully to 6 stages. Sky Uppercut or Brick Break is your choise of Fighting STAB. No Second Effect or get rid of Screens on the Foe's Side. Your 4th move can Be Dragon Claw for STAB, Poison Jab for Fairy coverage or EQ for All-around coverage.

Kommo-o @ Life Orb
Type : Dragon / Fighting
Ability : Bulletproof
Nature : Lonely / Naughty
EVs : Attack, Special Attack, Speed

Belly Drum (max Atk)
Outrage (STAB)
Poison Jab (anti-fairy)
Brick Break (STAB)

Here Kommo-o is an all-out attacker with no consideration for defense, useful for taking out one stubborn enemy Pokemon that just won't faint. First use Belly Drum to max his attack, then use Outrage or Brick Break depending on type matchups. Poison Jab is, of course, to get rid of enemy Fairy types as soon as possible.
