Charizard-Mega-X @ Charizardite X
Ability: Tough Claws
EVs: 32 HP / 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 220 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Swords Dance
- Outrage
- Fire Punch
- Thunder Punch

This set is a wallbreaker, obviously, and runs Dragon + Fire + Electric coverage, a combination with no resistances*. Max Attack and Adamant for extra meaty hits, enough speed for neutral-natured base 95's such as Zygarde and whatever runs 290 to creep them, with the rest for an odd-numbered HP value.

Outrage hits insanely hard even without a boost. If stuff like Quag isn't an issue and being locked into a move isn't preferred then Dragon Claw can be used instead. Fire Punch is used over Flare Blitz because it gets the same KOs after a boost while avoiding recoil, and Thunder Punch nails Water-types such as Toxapex and Tapu Fini. +2 Thunder Punch also 2HKOs even the bulkiest Heatran sets.

*Mega Altaria resists this combo but it's an unmon so whatever
iirc, (unboosted) adamant dragon rush can 3hko defensive lando-t and 2hko quagsire, mew, Toxapex, pyu, gliscor and a ton of other things that dragon claw misses out on. For this particular niche, it could be a viable middle-ground and potentially let you forego tpunch for another move (like roost or eq) if you don't care about Fini.
First time here but I just had to post this one because I didn’t see anyone doing it

Ability: Tough Claws
EVs: 4HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe
Adamant/ Jolly Nature
- Belly drum
- Dragon claw
- Flame charge
- Roost

This set is always a surprise, no shock it hits like a truck. The flame charge first turn a lot of times can be used to just finish something off. Against a few defensive cores too you can just go ahead and belly drum then attempt to sweep. Roost comes in handy often to increase longevity after you get rid of Zards checks Evs and nature to just maximize offensive potential

Ability: Tough Claws
EVs: 248 HP / 196 SpD / 64 Spe
Careful Nature
- Will-O-Wisp / Earthquake
- Roost
- Flare Blitz
- Toxic

Spdef Zard so you're even more annoying. X because better typing. evs outspeed Timid Magearna and Slower. Alternate EV spread of 248 HP / 188 SpD / 72 Spe with Jolly should be used with Earthquake to outpace timid Heatran. Toxic snipes fat waters par pex. Wisp burns stuff and Flare Blitz for a spammable attack. Roost heals you.
