Jolly Nature, Sheer Force ability (Zen Mode sucks, period)
~Fire Punch/Flare Blitz (if you don't mind the recoil)
~Rock Slide
~Brick Break

You don't need 3 Fire moves.
Also, Zen Mode is bad because it needs Darmanitan to be at less than 50% HP, and it needs a moveset that is divided into 2 parts, which each part being useless before/after Zen Mode activates.

Mild/Rash Nature
~Dragon Claw

it must have no hold item, since it has Acro.

Weird that you reject Emboar when it probably has the best movepool of the Gen V starters. Anyway:

Adamant/Snow Cloak
-Icicle Crash
-Brick Break
-Rock Slide
-Hone Claws

OHKO moves suck. By the time it actually might hit you've either run out of PP or fainted.
Icicle Crash is your one and only STAB. Rock Slide covers Fire types. Brick Break hits the Steel types that resist your other moves.
Hone Claws increases your attack and boosts Icicle Crash and Rock slide's accuracy to 100%.

Jolly/Sand Rush
-Rock Slide
-Swords Dance

Earhthquake is more powerful and accurate than Drill Run. No need for Drill Run then. X-scissor hits any Grass types that resist Earthquake as well as the many Psychics and Darks you encounter through the region. Swords Dance doubles your attack after one use, meaning pretty much anything you touch will be KOed. Use Sand Rush as you already boost attack.

Water Absorb/Modest
-Shadow Ball
-Ice Beam

Water Absorb beats Cursed Body as immunities are always much more useful.
I dont know why you always have 2-3 STABs of the same type on each pokemon, but stop doing it. Surf finds a balance between power, accuracy and PP. Ice Beam covers Grass types. Will-o-Wisp makes you an amazing wall taking little damage from both attacking stats. Toxic wears down pokemon with high defence though.

Thanks For All The Advice Guys. I Have One Question, Whats A STAB Move?

STAB example:

NOT STAB: Infernape uses thunderpunch! Infernape is Fire Fighting, Thunderpunch is electric.

STAB: Infernape uses Mach Punch! Infernape Fire Fighting, Mach Punch Fighting. Since it used a move of his same type, it does more damage.

Beartic @NeverMeltIce
Hardy Nature
Snow Veil
-Stone Edge
-Hone Claws
-Icicle Crash
Hone Claws boost accuracy and attack, making Stone Edge, Blizzard and Icicle Crash much better moves, and Brine or Dive covers 3/4 of Beartic's weaknesses. Some people don't like Dive, but it does more base damage than Brine does. Surf could work too.
