Bumping because I'm surprised Garchomp has had so little discussion seeing as it's a fuckmothering land shark and all.
SubSD seems to be the most common set atm, and for good reason. While Skarmory completely cockblocks it it's still a very dangerous threat, fuck sand veil, etc. etc. It's very potent both mid and late-game (and it can be a nightmare of a last mon to deal with when you can't phaze it out).
I am very partial to CB Chomp. The thing hits like a fucking truck. Only Skarmory, Bonzong, and Gliscor can really switch in safely, and the latter gets 2HKOed by Outrage if it's not Poison Heal Gliscor. Everything else gets absolutely mauled by Earthquake or Outrage. Scarf Chomp is also a good cleaner with hazard support since it outpaces most other Scarfers.
Support Garchomp seems like an interesting option on non-sand teams looking for a Stealth Rock user. Garchomp certainly has many chances to set it up, and on sun teams it can even use Fire Blast to disuade Skarmory from switching in.
Edit: Shed Shell is a necessity of Skarm imo.
