On the plus, there's 130 base Attack. That's good by anyone's standards. However, 75 speed and a defensive spread of 65/60/60 is subpar bordering on awful. 75 SpAtk isn't too great either...
Physically, Night Slash Play Rough, Megahorn, X-Scissor, Shadow Claw, Stone Edge, Psycho Cut, Sucker Punch, Foul Play, Zen Headbutt, Knock Off and Assurance are the choices. Nice variety. Setup-wise, there's SD, Me First, Snatch, BPass, Perish Song and Taunt. Fairly good. Specially, there's Blizzard/Ice Beam, Future Sight, Thunder/Bolt, Shadow Ball, Dark Pulse, Snarl, Flamethrower/Fire Blast and Hex are choices. Not good for Absol, but the Mega can use a Special set.
Pressure: Good in some situations, especially as some of the better moves out there have low PP.
Super Luck: Good for critmax sets, especially with Night Slash.
Justified: Meh. Good on a switchin, but I doubt it's going to tank too many hits anyway...
252 Atk, 252 HP/Spd, 4Spd/HP
Critspam set, just because normal Absol's not really capable of much else. Snatch is to steal any of their setups, if predicted.
Hit it. It's not that bulky, and it's probably not going to outspeed you.
+Attack stat is godly.
-Every other stat is poor/awful.
Wow. 150 Atk is the selling point here, although 115 SpAtk and Spd aren't to be underestimated. The defensive spread... Is unchanged. Really?
Magic Bounce is a useful ability, especially as it allows MegAbsol to act as an antilead. Reflecting SR back at them, and them hitting hard... Yeah. It also stops Taunting, allowing it to setup, and and reflects status moves like Toxic. The pokemon that throw them out, generally tend not to like taking one to the face...
Lightning Strikes Twice.
252 SpAtk, 252 Spd, 4 HP
MegAbsol can pull a special set, with that SpAtk, however rare it is. Simple set, 2 coverage plus STAB, and Snarl for anti-Special damage.
252 Spd, 252 Atk, 4 HP
-Stone Edge/Play Rough
Simple, physical set. STAB and coverage, with Psycho Cut to hurt the Fighting switchin. SD can set up to cause even more damage, but the defenses aren't up to taking hits.
Anything with Mach Punch can check MegAbsol. Those low defenses and low HP will be its bane. Also, Scrafty can take most everything it can throw, and OHKO with HJK.
