  1. Courtesy of AragornBird:

    Salamence @Life Orb/Yache Berry/Lum Berry
    EVs: 252 Atk / 6 SAtk / 252 Spd
    Naughty Nature
    -Outrage
    -Earthquake
    -Fire Blast
    -Dragon Dance

    DDMence is such a huge threat that can easily sweep unprepared teams. An
    Outrage boosted by Dragon Dance and Life Orb can take out just about anything
    in two hits or less. Earthquake and Fire Blast hit Steel types, the only type
    that resists Dragon. Fire Blast is used over Fire Fang because it can OHKO
    Skarmory and Forretress, which is something Fire Fang can't do. Life Orb is
    the preferred item, but Yache and Lum Berry can give you insurance against Ice
    or status moves.

    Salamence @Life Orb
    EVs: 80 Atk / 252 SAtk / 176 Spd
    Mild/Rash Nature
    -Draco Meteor
    -Earthquake/Brick Break
    -Fire Blast
    -Outrage/Roost

    If people aren't using DDMence, then they are probably using a MixMence.
    MixMence can be EVed many different ways, but the goal is the same - break
    as many walls as you can. Draco Meteor is a surprise for physically defensive
    Pokemon who are expecting a Dragon Dance set. Earthquake is for Steels, but
    Brick Break does more damage to Tyranitar, Blissey, and Snorlax. Fire Blast
    hits Skarmory, Forretress, and Celebi. Outrage is another option for wall
    breaking if you choose Earthquake over Brick Break, since it will do more
    damage to Blissey. Roost can be used to heal your Life Orb damage.

    Salamence @Choice Specs
    EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
    Modest Nature
    -Draco Meteor
    -Flamethrower
    -Hydro Pump
    -Dragon Pulse

    SpecsMence can be a big surprise. Though its Sp. Attack is lower than its
    Attack, it can do incredible amounts of damage with the insanely powerful
    Draco Meteor. Very few Pokemon can survive a full power Draco Meteor and even
    fewer can survive the second round of this move. Only Steel types resist
    Dragon moves and those are taken care of by Flamethrower. Heatran is the only
    Pokemon that resists both Dragon and Fire attacks, so Hydro Pump is reserved
    especially for it. Dragon Pulse is your secondary Dragon move. Use it near the
    end of the battle when your opponents have already been weakened.

    Salamence @Choice Band
    EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
    Adamant Nature
    -Outrage
    -Fire Blast
    -Earthquake
    -Stone Edge/Aqua Tail

    CBMence is still a powerful force. A STABed Outrage could be a nasty
    surprise to people who expect you to Dragon Dance. Earthquake hits Steel types.
    Fire Blast hits airbone Steels like Skarmory and Bronzong and will do more
    damage than Fire Fang. Stone Edge is for Fliers like Gyarados, but Aqua Tail
    will 2HKO bulky Ground-types like Gliscor or Hippowdon.

    Salamence @Choice Scarf
    EVs: 252 Atk / 80 SAtk / 176 Spd
    Naughty Nature
    -Outrage
    -Earthquake
    -Hydro Pump
    -Fire Blast

    ScarfMence is like a combination of the Specs and Band versions. Since you
    don't get any power boosts, you need a mix of physical and special attacks to
    hit a wide range of opponents.
