Let's say pokemon no longer get STAB bonuses, which pokemon is suddenly worse?

If they didn't have STAB bonuses, barely any Pokemon would use attacks of their own type. Adaptability would be downgraded, Porygon-Z just doesn't hit as hard, and who knows what would happen to Heracross? Nothing good can really come from lack of STAB bonuses.

No STAB. Everyone who can't use Bolt/Beam/Thrower becomes useless really as a special attacker.

Uh, like every Normal type Pokemon sucks now.

Eh, you could still rock Shadow ball and focus miss together, or dragon pulse/fire move for the near perfect coverage, ya?

Anyway, pretty much all pokemon but Shedinja artificially become bulkier because certain attackers needed that extra 50% power to net efficient kills or put pressure on them.

Isn't it pretty much defensive pokemon become better while offensive pokemon become worse.
