Drizzle on Politoed definitely!
But now Kyogre is less unique!

Trading my almost perfect UT Timid Mewtwo! Its IVs are 31/22/31/31/30/31. You can verify the calculation here:
There's some DW abilities that now define the Pokémon utilizing them, and they would be nothing without them. Blaziken is at the top of that list, and so is Sableye. Sableye, as a matter of fact, was nigh impossible to use prior to BW. If you need more confirmation, play with it's counterpart Mawile, who still is held back by pitiful stats, despite Sheer Force's awesomeness.
Then there's others who benefitted markedly, but could hold their own with prior abilities. Infernape and Espeon come to mind. Infernape gets the Iron Fist from DW, but Blaze on Infernape is no slouch either, especially since the majority of Infernape have Focus Sash slapped onto them. Synchronize Espeon is laughable these days, but at one point paralyzing Espeon meant paralyzing your own team members. Now you don't have to actually paralyze Espeon for your own move to backfire...
I'd say Blaziken won this Generation's best DW ability lottery. Say what you will about Drizzletoed and Droughtails, Blaziken turns into a one Pokémon killing machine in ONE turn thanks to Speed Boost. No other Pokémon can claim that stand alone title. It's at it's best in OU, but thanks to Smogon, that's not happening.

I'm gonna say prankster here pretty much because of whimsicott's early success, the fact that it helped contribute to making thundurus i broken, and the success of prankster sableye thus far.

I think the worst Dream World has to offer has yet to be unleashed. Once we see Shadow Tag Chandelure, I think the general opinion might be different. In fact, I wonder if the whole reason why GF has waited so long to release it is because they've realized what a monster they're creating.

Do you know what they call alternative medicine that's been proven to work?

Whoaa Huge Power
No not really not Dream World to bad huh
But no. Magic Bounce is a very very good ability. Especially when hazards are a big part of the metagame now.
Reckless is also a good ability that does not get a lot of mention. Reckless Mienshao has rediculous power but it is overshadowed by Regenerator I guess >_>
Hydration is another good one. Making Vaporeon and Alomomola that much more useful.
And yeah Overconfident probably been said 100 times but yeah. It was actually given to quite a few Pokemon I see ・_・It really made some of the already very strong Pokemon even more dangerous. To the point where it is always good to be prepared to deal with Moxie users
Espeon, Chandelure and Dragonite all got (or will get) interesting Hidden Abilities that helped them get into the Gen V metagame, even if they are too old/too new.
However, I think that the best Dream World ability we will ever get is CONTRARY! Hail, Serperior! Even over Speed Boost Blaziken that made it Uber )
I think poison heal on Gliscor is pretty cool. :>
Kind of helps in preventing your opponents from giving your Pokemon status problems.
Poison Heal on Gliscor and Magic Bounce on Espeon are the best DW Abilities IMO. They really help the Pokémon. I mean, Espeon was rubbish and Gliscor could be improved. Now they are excellent Pokémon that are now very Common in Battles.
Many were enlightened after the Awakening..
We can protect the Fire Emblem again, if we work together...
Gliscor was already a fantastic physical wall and Poison Heal made him even better, but it wasn't completely 100% amazing. The best abilities by far given out from the dream world were Speed Boost Blazi, Drizzle Toed, and Drought Tails. Blazi went Ubers because of this ability, and the two new weather setters have had an unbelievable impact on the metagame.
wonder guard. Shedinja's dream world ability.
Guns don't kill people. I kill people.
Ditto was terrible. Thanks to imposter, ditto is an amazing force. He wreaks dragons and physical teams. Imposter is great.

All of you are forgetting Skill Link Cinccino. Technician is too shaky to her boosted multi hitting moves. With constant five hits, screw Multiscale, Sturdy, and Focus Sashes! She can break them and finish them off, a good reason to run her in all tiers despite the 95 attacks. I mean ... 115 base speed. This Chinchilla is a seriously underrated killer. I killed TERRAKIONS and a couple DRAGONITES with her. Still testing it with a Keldeo though. so SCREW majority of the OU pokemon. If you don't have Gengar and any Steel type pokemon with you, she can kill you. How's that OU jerkasses? Fun part is, give her Kings Rock and start fishing for flinches. you think getting Flinched by Jirachi, Togekiss, and Skymin is not enough ... what About Cinccino? Yeah ... Cloyster can do the same too.
In the NU, Guts Luxray. It's what the coolest electric lion need to be a good wallbreaker / sweeper.
Another in NU would be Pokemon's very first bug type pokemon found early in the early days of Red and Blue. Butterfree. If you forgot about her, what a shame. Read Smogon's description about her in the 5th generation below. Useless ... becomes an NU top threat 4 generations later.
So for everone responding here, don't leave behind the lower tiers pleaseAs she elegantly (Quiver) dances her way into BW, it is easily apparent that Butterfree is significantly better than she was in the old RBY days. No longer is she the standard for terrible Bug-type Pokemon that make six-year-olds cry over how bad they are; rather, Butterfree has finally become a Pokemon worthy of use. With BW's gifts to her in the forms of Tinted Lens and Quiver Dance, Butterfree has found a comfortable place in the NU metagame as the most lethal Quiver Dance sweeper available. The picturesque combination of Sleep Powder, Quiver Dance, and Tinted Lens makes for a lethal combination in NU, and Butterfree's stats are just good enough to utilize these moves perfectly. Butterfree is not just a one-trick pony (err, butterfly) either; she is also capable of firing off Compoundeyes Sleep Powders and Stun Spores if sweeping with Quiver Dance isn't your cup of tea. Despite her mediocre stats, downright awful typing, and various other tiny things that make her a poor Pokemon on paper, Butterfree has proven to be an excellent Pokemon in the NU metagame. After generations of disuse and mockery, you could say that Butterfree has finally evolved into that beautiful butterfly that she had wanted to be for so long.
I have to say that Sheer Force on Nidoking is the DW ability I find the most useful. Especially since moves like Earth Power and Ice Beam is counted as moves which gains the effect, which really improves Nidokings ability of being an offensive powerhouse.
While also negating Life Orb recoil, Nidoking gets an insanely + 63% boost to attacks without paying anything in return. Combined with Nidokings good coverage moves, I think this is a very good DW ability.
If you are looking for XY/ORAS Wi-Fi battles I'm always ready so just give me a shout!

I think Regenator for Alomomala, tangela and Slowpoke
was an great addition that really helps the pokemon.
My personal favorite is Flare Boost Drifblim though,
its unqiue and makes him the strongest SP.attacker ghost pokemon in the metagame.
