Revenge Killer

Tsareena (F) @ Choice Scarf
Ability: Queenly Majesty
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature (+Spe, -SpA)
- Trop Kick
- High Jump Kick
- Play Rough
- U-turn

With her signature ability, Queenly Majesty, Tsareena is immune to priority moves such as Ice Shard and Extremespeed, allowing her to effectively function as a revenge killer with a Choice Scarf to mitigate her Speed. Trop Kick is her STAB signature move, lowering the enemy's attack by one stage per hit. High Jump Kick and Play Rough offers coverage for Steel and Dragon types that both resist Grass, and U-Turn is in the last slot as a scouting move to help gain momentum.

Support Tsareena

Tsareena (F) @ Leftovers
Ability: Queenly Majesty
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SpD
Careful Nature (+SpD, -SpA)
- Trop Kick
- Synthesis
- Aromatherapy
- Rapid Spin / U-Turn / Toxic

Tsareena can also make use of her stellar defensive stats to run a support set, with options such as Aromatherapy and Rapid Spin so that she can support her team. Synthesis gives her much needed longevity as it is reliable recovery, giving her many opportunities to spin or heal status over the course of the match. Trop Kick's utility in lowering enemy's attack helps her take physical hits much better, so more investment is put into special defence to allow her to comfortably take special attacks from the likes of Tapu Fini (it needs a lot of boosts to significantly damage her, while Trop Kick 3HKOs even without investment). U-Turn and Toxic are also solid options in the last slot, either for momentum or to put enemies on a timer.

Just pointing out. Pokemaster said in the Guide Lines to post one Moveset per anwser so that it could be voted separately. Good sets.
I really like this moveset, Tsareena is probably the best attack based grass type out there.

I am by no means an experienced competitive player, but here's a set.
Weird introduction anyways

Tsareena <----- LEGS :OO

Legs (Tsareena) @ Life Orb
Ability: Queenly Majesty
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spe /4 SpD
Jolly Nature
- Trop Kick
- Synthesis
- High Jump Kick
- Play Rough

About the set -- with a mediocre Speed stat, sitting at 72, it'll have a fantastic time being outsped by a ton of stuff. No Scarf, though, because Synthesis, High Jump Kick and Life Orb works really well. It has surprisingly okay defenses, at 98 both. Because of its mediocre speed stat, it had to be fully invested. Alternatively, you could probably run Scarf and an Adamant Nature, and replace Synthesis with U-turn, as you'd probably not pit it against other Scarfed Pokemon. Queenly Majesty is its best ability, the way I see it, even though it'll get outsped anyways, switching into a predicted priority move could be a good way to get her in untouched.

Then, the moves. It's meant to be an all-out attack set, with moves designed to decimate the enemy team. Trop Kick is her only good physical STAB move, plus the added bonus of lowering the opponent's attack. Synthesis is general recovery when you find the chance, to give her longevity and just in case of High Jump Kick missing and Life Orb recoil. High Jump Kick is just super powerful and random coverage, and Play Rough is the same.

An alternative set is a Choice Scarf set, same everything except Scarf item and U-turn instead of Synthesis. I've never really enjoyed using Choice sets as well, but it could help get her Speed up, which is her biggest downside by far.

Get rid of Synthesis and replace it with U-turn, as when Tsareena heals itself, the opponent can set up freely or unleash a powerful move. And with that bulk, Tsareena probably won't stand a chance
Have you looked at Tsareena's stats? It's pretty bulky actually. I wouldn't recommend using U-Turn with a Life Orb, as it's usually a waste of health every time you use it, as your opponent is going to switch to something that U-Turn won't do a lot of damage to.

Gen 8 DLC

Tsareena @ Wide Lens
Ability: Sweet Veil
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spe / 4 SpD
Alternate spread: 252 Atk / 252 HP / 4 SpD
Adamant Nature (Jolly works if first spread)
- Triple Axel
- Trop Kick
- High Jump Kick
- Rapid Spin / Aromatherapy / Play Rough / U-turn / Synthesis

Triple Axel: New move tutor introduces in DLC. A decent 120bp physical Ice type move that hits thrice. Makes it better as now it threatens Dragon types. Wide Lens boosts accuracy for a better hit chance.

Trop Kick: STAB. Gives physical bulk.

High Jump Kick: Powerful fighting move. Accuracy boosted by Wide Lens. Deals with Pokemon with Ferrothorn although it will take some damage.

Rapid Spin / Aromatherapy / Play Rough / U-turn / Synthesis: Rapid Spin removes hazards and boosts Speed. Aromatherapy supports. Play Rough for coverage, makes Wide Lens more useful (and more reliant on it). U-turn pivots. Synthesis is for recovery.

Queenly Majesty is kinda useless, only useful as defense against a rare First Impression. Leaf Guard on sun teams, but Tsareena does not have much use on sun teams.

Gen 8 Doubles OU

Tsareena (F) @ Assault Vest
Ability: Queenly Majesty
EVs: 224 HP / 128 Atk / 156 Spe
Adamant Nature
- U-turn
- Power Whip
- Triple Axel
- Feint

(Yes I know Feint might seem weird but it's for catching Protects.)

If you hate priority attacks (e.g. Fake Out and Rillaboom's Grassy Glide), this is the Pokémon for you. Tsareena's Queenly Majesty ability invalidates all of the opponent's priority attacks and, unlike Psychic Terrain, it still allows your ally to use their own priority moves. U-Turn is for pivoting. Power Whip is STAB (if you're running this on a sun team you can use Solar Blade). Triple Axel is coverage, notably hitting Landorus-T, Dragapult and the aforementioned Rillaboom hard. Feint should be used on a Protect read, since Feint will break the target's protection, allowing Tsareena's ally to still be able to attack them. It also destroys Wide Guard and could also be used to finish off a seriously weakened opponent. The EVs allow Tsareena to outspeed uninvested Landorus-T and KO Dragapult with Triple Axel (assuming all 3 hits connect). Even with maximum attack investment it can't really secure OHKOs.

Tsareena (F) @ Normalium Z
Ability: Queenly Majesty
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 HP
Adamant Nature
- Trop Kick
- High Jump Kick / Play Rough
- Synthesis
- Splash

Z-Splash raises Attack by 3 stages (250%).
Trop Kick is the best STAB in the movepool.
High Jump Kick has a huge base power, but if you miss you lose 50% of your HP.
Play Rough has a great base power and 90 accuracy.
Synthesis to keep you in the game for a long time.

I had no idea Z-Splash raised your attack that much,  I just wondering the other day what was the point of it.

Physical Attacker

Tsareena @ Expert Belt
Ability: Queenly Majesty
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spe / 4 HP
Nature: Adamant / Jolly
- Trop Kick
- High Jump Kick
- Play Rough
- Aromatherapy / Rapid Spin / Synthesis

Physical Attacker set, with a bonus support/healing move. I suggest Synthesis out of the three to keep Tsareena alive so she can keep sweeping.

Support

Tsareena @ Leftovers
Ability: Queenly Majesty
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 Spe OR 252 HP / 252 Spe / 4 Atk
Nature: Adamant / Jolly
- Aromatherapy
- Rapid Spin
- Synthesis
- Trop Kick

A support Tsareena. The set is designed to take hits, prevent priority moves, cure status, and eliminate threats like Stealth Rock/Spikes. It also has an additional STAB attack move if you ever need it.

You want a good moveset? Here's one of mine:

Tsareena (F) @ Salac Berry
Ability: Queenly Majesty
EVs: 252 Atk / 85 Def / 85 SpD / 86 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Trop Kick
- High Jump Kick
- Synthesis
- Acrobatics

You want reasons! We all know what Queenly Majesty does; it gives her immunity from priority moves like Ice shard. The EVs, well we need them to take hits and give hits. The moveset: Trop Kick lowers the opponent's Attack for every time it hits. High Jump Kick for punks that think they got type advantages like Ice. Synthesis is for recovering health when things look bad and Acrobatics is pretty weak if you have an item. That's where the berry comes in and boost your Speed and you might get a chance to use Synthesis to recover some health and you got a more powerful move.

Salac Berry boosts Speed in a Pinch.

Dual Screen Supporter

Tsareena @ Light Clay
Ability: Queenly Majesty
EVs: 252 HP / 252 SpD / 4 Atk
Careful Nature
- U-Turn
- Reflect
- Trop Kick
- Light Screen

Explanation: With Tsareena's nice bulk, She can be a supporter. Light Clay is a great item because it boosts the duration of Light Screen and Reflect for 8 turns instead of the usual 5. U-Turn is used for scouting. Reflect raises Defense for 8 turns with the Light Clay. Trop Kick is STAB and it lowers the foe's Attack stat by one stage, making Tsareena even bulkier. Light Screen raises Special Defense for 8 turns with the Light Clay.

Well, I'm not sure if this set if it is good as I've not tried it out (I do have this set in Moon, I just haven't removed the EVS on Defense to place them on Defense and Special Defense equally)
Tsareena
Tsareena (F) @Normalium Z
Ability: Sweet Veil
EVS: 252 Atk / 128 Def / 128 SpD
Adamant Nature
- Play Rough
- Trop Kick
- High Jump Kick
- Splash (Used for Z-Move to increase Attack up to 3 stages, and if a Pokémon with the Simple ability had Skill Swapped its Ability with Tsareena’s Ability, then it is double up to max stages)

I will explain the moveset, and why I choose Sweet Veil over its other Ability. The reason why I have Sweet Veil is because of the Simple Ability. Sadly, no Pokemon that can have the Simple Ability can Skill Swap it, but a Pokemon can skill swap it, Skill Swap it again to Tsareena, where it can use Z-Splash. Now, normally, if it had any Ability, it would increase Tsareena's Attack up 3 stage, but with Simple (P.S.: I haven't tested if this Simple Z-Splash does work), it can boost her attack up to MAX.
Play Rough is better than Dazzling Gleam in my opinion because Dazzling Gleam is a special move, and Tsareena's Special Attack stat is horrible. Play Rough does have a 10% chance of missing but evens out that 10% by having a 10% chance of lowering the target's Attack.
Trop Kick is for STAB and also have a chance of lowering the target's attack. This also deals with those bulky Water, Rock, or Ground types.
High Jump Kick is for coverage of Ice types, as well as dealing with Steel, Dark, Normal, and Rock types.

lol its 100% female didnt need to say tat (unless it said u had to in rules)
Performing a Skill Swap chain to Tsareena is pretty pointless. It's extra work, and more turns for Tsareena to get KOed. +3 is usually enough to OHKO quite a few things anyways.

Why is Leaf Guard so underused?

Tsareena @ Liechi Berry / Salac Berry
Ability: Leaf Guard
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spe / 6 HP
Nature: Adamant / Jolly
- Trop Kick
- High Jump Kick
- Acrobatics
- Sunny Day

In the first round, set up with Sunny Day, preventing status conditions. Trop Kick provides STAB (and lowers opponent's Attack), High Jump Kick and Acrobatics are for coverage. And in a pinch, the berry gets consumed, increasing Attack or Speed (depending on your choice) and powering up Acrobatics.

If you're gonna use Sunny Day, might as well use Solar Blade.

And Leaf Guard doesn't see much use since weather fell out of favor with Gen VI and it's dead weight outside of sun.

Bulky Help
Tsareena (F) @ Blunder Policy / Life Orb
Ability: Queenly Majesty
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Atk / 252 SpD
Careful Nature
- Aromatherapy
- Trop Kick / High Jump Kick / U-turn
- Grass Whistle
- Synthesis

Tsareena doesn't work well as fast support because of her nasty speed, so I decided to give her some bulk. Blunder Policy is for when you miss Grass Whistle, which can help you with outspeeding the opponent and catching up on the turn. With Trop Kick you can lower the opponent's Attack, so you can run max Special Defense. If the opponent have Sap Sipper or a similar Ability, you can switch to another Pokemon with more suitable attacking moves. Synthesis works when you choose High Jump Kick, but I personally prefer Trop Kick, because of it lowering Attack. If you run Trop Kick and Life Orb, this will help you with restoring lost HP. Aromatherapy when your Tsareena gets a status condition. U-turn in attacking slot can work well for switching too, but it doesn't work well with her speed or items.

Gen 8 PU

Tsareena (F) @ Choice Scarf
Ability: Queenly Majesty
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Power Whip
- Triple Axel
- Knock Off
- U-turn

Choice Scarf set. Power Whip is a really strong STAB move. Triple Axel is for coverage against dragon, flying, and opposing grass types, as well as being able to hit 3 times. Knock Off cripples Pokemon that heavily rely on their item by removing them. U-Turn is for pivoting.
