I think this set is fine for the Battle Tree, but in competitive play, Terrain Extender is pretty worthless with how common the other Tapus are. Thunderbolt should always be your primary attack if you're special, and Protect is 100% necessary on the Life Orb set.

You have more options for electric STAB, and you actually have a fairy move, plus options like HP Ice/Fire/Ground or Grass Knot. I can't speak as much for 6v6 singles, but in VGC/doubles, Intimidate is EXTREMELY common, meaning you often lose out on that higher attack anyway. Physical sets are still good, but there's plenty of reasons to want to go special.

I would suggest Hasty for VGC though if you want Dazzling Gleam so that Porygon 2 will get an attack boost.
