* Choice Scarf Koraidon is one of the best revenge killers in Ubers thanks to its high Attack and Speed.
* Low Kick is usually preferred over Collision Course due to it hitting most Pokemon harder in the heavy Ubers tier.
* Dragon Claw is a reliable Dragon-type STAB move, while Outrage usually 2HKOes Skeledirge. This can force it to use Tera Fairy, which Zacian-C can take advantage of.
* U-turn allows Koraidon to take advantage of predictable switches to Skeledirge or Groudon and bring in dangerous wallbreakers, such as Flutter Mane, Chi-Yu, Walking Wake, or Kyogre. Be careful not to use U-turn too much when facing Rocky Helmet users like Toxapex.
* Flare Blitz hits targets like Arceus-Fairy hard, especially when boosted by Tera Fire. Tera Fire also prevents burns from Skeledirge or Giratina-O and gives Koraidon a useful Fairy resistance.
* Tera Steel is a good option for the myriad of resistances it brings, most notably Normal for E-Killer Arceus, Dragon for opposing Koraidon or Miraidon, and Fairy against Arceus-Fairy or Zacian-C.
* As a revenge killer, Koraidon provides numerous advantages compared to others, such as having high Defense and Fighting-type STAB moves to take on E-Killer Arceus, and attacking physically lets it heavily damage Calm Mind Arceus formes.
* It's nigh on impossible for this Koraidon to break past Skeledirge, Toxapex, or Dondozo reliably, so pairing Koraidon with strong wallbreakers that can take advantage of U-turn is a must.
* Arceus-Fairy takes on Koraidon well and doesn't mind U-turn, so checks to Arceus-Fairy such as Skeledirge, Zacian-C, and Clodsire are good partners.
* Flare Blitz recoil, Rocky Helmet damage, and entry hazards can quickly pile up damage on this Koraidon, so having a solid defensive core is recommended so you don't have to rely on Koraidon's revenge killing as much.

I think slashing low kick first makes more sense than cc as, like you said, most mons in Ubers are heavy and get hit harder by it.
when you talk about breakers I'd mention some (flutter mane, miraidon, etc) as there are quite a lot of options for koraidon teammates

One thing thats been seen a bit is Outrage use as a slash after Dragon Claw. It lets Koraidon somewhat reliably 2HKO Skeledirge on the switch + force a Tera Fairy out of it for teammates like Zacian-C to take advantage of. I'd also mention that having something that can absorb status as a teammate is good, since Koraidon's switch-ins like Arceus-Fairy / Skeledirge / Toxapex can all get a Wisp / Toxic off. Also maybe would mention that Koraidon being locked into Flare Blitz can be abused by Dragons like Miraidon / opposing Koraidon / Kyogre, so having a defensive backbone is appreciated for Koraidon.
