Snow Warning Vulpix. Im running Timid. I cant get the attack IV down down to 0 but is it important to have my def and sp.def IVs at 31 even though its soo frail.

While Kommo-o can pull off a Dragon Dancing set, it faces plenty of competition from Charizard X, Zygarde, Salamence, and Dragonite. Of course, you can use it for style points alone:
-Dragon Dance
-Outrage
-Sky Uppercut
-Poison Jab
Nature: Jolly/Adamant
EVs: 252 Atk/4 Def/252 Spe
Item: Life Orb/Lum Berry/Poisonium Z

or
-Autotomize
-Clanging Scales
-Focus Blast
-Poison Jab
Nature: Rash
EVs: 28 Atk/252 SAtk/228 Spe
Item: Life Orb/Poisonium Z

Poisonium Z is an option on both sets to let Kommo-o break past things like Clefable or Tapu Fini.

I just got a contrary 6iv serperior (timid) and I'm wondering what set I should use for it. It's level 40 and I've already reset its ev's. I can't teach it dragon pulse as that is a transfer move. Anybody have some sets without dragon pulse?

Besides the obligatory Leaf Storm, other moves that get used on it are stuff like Substitute+Leech Seed, Glare, Taunt, Giga Drain, Hidden Power (assuming your's has a decent HP type anyway). I think that Knock Off was usable too but that's transfer-only now.

I've always used this set on mine

Serperior @ Leftovers
Ability: Contrary
EVs: 56 HP / 200 SpA / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
- Substitute
- Leech Seed
- Leaf Storm
- Hidden Power Fire

Hidden Power Ground or Ice works too if yours isn't Fire, or you could always try Toxic or Taunt in the last slot too. Glare is another alternative option as well, but it's an egg move.

What are some of Mega Slowbro's more popular sets & if Passmian & Alolan Muk already received an ability via Receiver/Power of Alchemy then either used U-Turn or just switched out, will their original abilities reset?

Slowbro is one of those Pokemon that can delay its Mega Evolution to take advantage of its base form's ability:
-Calm Mind
-Scald
-Psyshock/Iron Defense
-Slack Off
Nature: Bold
EVs: 248 HP/80 Def/180 SDef
Item: Slowbronite
Ability: Regenerator

Thanks, that is very helpful!
But now I have a different question:
A Pokémon with a base speed of 145 (like Mega Sceptile) will have a speed stat of 427 with a speed positive nature with max speed IVs & EVs at Lvl.100.
But if it comes out while Sticky Web is active, it's speed will drop one stage.
My understanding is that a one stage drop is listed as 2/3, which is equal to x0.66 & 427 x 0.66 is 281.82 & since the Pokémon games drops the numbers after the decimal, it becomes 281.
& Then a Pokémon with a base speed stat of 80 (like Kabutops) will have the speed stat of 284 at Lvl.100 with a speed positive with max speed IVs & EVs.
So if my calculations are correct, Kabutops can outspeed Mega Sceptile with Sticky Web's help.
I'm not sure if I've done this correctly, so if someone could verify this, that'd be greatly appreciated.
(P.S.
I don't plan to do this exact match up, just giving some examples...)

Got a timid Cresselia. Since I got it a while ago and can't soft reset to when I first caught it, I think I can put it to use.
Is timid Cresselia viable? What moveset should it have?

Spoiler:
Decidueye @ Decidium Z
Ability: Overgrow
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Swords Dance
- Spirit Shackle
- Leaf Blade
- Sucker Punch

Lycanroc @ Focus Sash
Ability: Steadfast
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Stone Edge
- Stealth Rock
- Taunt
- Accelerock / Crunch

Lycanroc isn't good in OU. Suicide lead is probably the most useful set for it. Azelf probably does that job better. Nonetheless, you could attempt an SD set:

Lycanroc @ Life Orb
Ability: Sand Rush
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Swords Dance
- Stone Edge
- Accelerock
- Fire Fang

With that, you're better off with Terrakion, Mega Aerodactyl, or Minior.

Muk-Alola @ Assault Vest
Ability: Poison Touch
EVs: 252 HP / 240 Atk / 16 SpD
Adamant Nature
- Knock Off
- Pursuit
- Poison Jab
- Shadow Sneak

Clefable @ Leftovers
Ability: Magic Guard
EVs: 252 HP / 184 Def / 72 SpD
Calm Nature
- Stealth Rock / Flamethrower / Thunder Wave
- Moonblast
- Soft-Boiled
- Thunder Wave / Knock Off / Flamethrower

Golisopod @ Leftovers / Choice Band / Life Orb
Ability: Emergency Exit
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 SpD
Adamant Nature
- First Impression
- Liquidation
- Leech Life
- Aqua Jet / Spikes

Buzzwole, Mega Scizor, Pheromosa, and Mega Beedrill are better options. You could give Golisopod a try anyway.

Chansey @ Eviolite
Ability: Natural Cure
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Def / 252 SpD
Bold Nature
- Soft-Boiled
- Seismic Toss
- Stealth Rock
- Aromatherapy

Bold nature is preferable, but Timid nature is the second best nature. You can use any moveset that has Bold with Timid Cress. However, full-on defensive Cress may not be effective with Timid. Dual screens and CM should be fine.

Cresselia @ Light Clay
Ability: Levitate
EVs: 252 HP / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
- Light Screen
- Reflect
- Lunar Dance
- Moonblast

Cresselia @ Leftovers
Ability: Levitate
EVs: 240 HP / 16 Def / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
- Calm Mind
- Psyshock
- Moonblast
- Moonlight

You could move more Speed EVs to Defense. Here are the RU Speed tiers. For reference, Cress has the same Speed as Articuno, Qwilfish, and Sawk.

I'm here for using Minior in Lycanroc place, Mega Scizor/Mega Beedrill for Golisopod place.
