[SET COMMENTS]
Kyogre cements itself as a fantastic offensive presence due to its extraordinary firepower and exceptional bulk. It comes in most often on the metagame's abundant Ground-type Pokemon, most notably Arceus-Ground, Ting-Lu, and Landorus-T, all of which are forced out by Kyogre. Ice Beam is a necessary coverage move, as it deals super effective damage to many of Kyogre's checks such as Miraidon, Koraidon, Giratina-O, Wo-Chien, Eternatus, and Clodsire. Thunder can be used to remove other Pokemon that resist Origin Pulse, those being Toxapex, Arceus-Water, and opposing Kyogre. In addition to coverage, Kyogre has a serviceable selection of utility options. Calm Mind further bolsters Kyogre's fantastic Special Attack, enabling it to 2HKO defensive answers such as Wo-Chien, Clodsire, and Eternatus using Ice Beam. Thunder Wave aims primarily to cripple Koraidon, slowing down Choice Scarf variants enough for teammates such as Zacian-C and Calyrex-S, which appreciate Speed control being neutralized. Paralyzed Koraidon that do not use a Choice Scarf, however, become slower than Kyogre itself. Thunder Wave also slows down Arceus formes enough for Kyogre to outspeed them, improving its matchup against Calm Mind Arcues-Fairy in particular. Substitute is useful for scouting switches, and lets Kyogre avoid status moves such as Toxic from Toxapex, Eternatus, and Clodsire and Leech Seed from Wo-Chien. Leftovers supports Kyogre's longevity, allowing it to continually switch in throughout the game. Alternatively, Mystic Water helps Kyogre break through bulky neutral targets, including various Arceus formes. 12 Speed EVs allow Kyogre to outspeed uninvested Landorus-T. Tera Fairy grants Kyogre a full immunity to Dragon-type attacks from threats like Koraidon and Miraidon, as well as providing a resistance to Koraidon's Fighting-type moves. Tera Poison offers an immunity to Toxic, as well as valuable resistances to Fighting, Fairy, and Grass. These resistances are helpful against Koraidon, Arceus-Fairy, and Calyrex-S, respectively. Tera Poison also allows Kyogre to absorb Toxic Spikes. However, being a Poison-type causes Kyogre to become vulnerable to Calyrex-S's Psychic-type STAB attacks. Finally, Tera Grass flips Kyogre's weaknesses to Calyrex-S's Grass Knot and Miraidon's Electric-type attacks to resistances. Tera Grass also offers a resistance to Ground, halting Dragon Dance Arceus-Ground and making it safer for Kyogre to switch in to Ground-type attacks. It is worth noting that Tera Grass makes Kyogre particularly weak to Koraidon, as U-turn and Flare Blitz become super effective. Kyogre is seen primarily on bulky offense structures that benefit from its ability to put pressure on defensive cores. It appreciates teammates that can switch into and wear down Koraidon, such as Landorus-T and Toxapex. Kyogre also appreciates support from Pokemon with pivot moves like Landorus-T, Koraidon, and Miraidon, which can help it safely get into the game. Additionally, defensive counterplay for Miraidon is neccessary, as it would otherwise threaten to OHKO Kyogre. Some teammates that can fill this niche are Ting-Lu, Wo-Chien, and Arceus-Ground. Offensive partners that can lure in their passive defensive checks, such as Koraidon, Miraidon, Calyrex-S, and Zacian-C, offer Kyogre ample opportunity to switch in. Calyrex-S in particular serves as an excellent offensive teammate. Its Psychic-type STAB moves give it the upper hand against Kyogre's defensive checks in Toxapex, Clodsire, and Eternatus. In turn, Kyogre is able to switch in on and threaten Calyrex-S's passive defensive checks in Ting-Lu and Arceus-Dark. Additionally, Encore variants of Calyrex-S are able to punish Arceus for attempting to revenge kill Kyogre with Extreme Speed.

It appreciates teammates that can switch into and wear down Koraidon, such as Landorus-T and Toxapex. Kyogre also appreciates support from Pokémon Pokemon with pivot moves like Landorus-T, Koraidon, and Miraidon, (comma) which can help it safely get into the game. (I'd probably mention Ting-Lu as a teammate as well) (probably not necessary, but you could mention teammates that force in the Pokemon Kyogre likes switching in on and clean up after Kyogre has broken holes in teams)

Offensive (Kyogre) @ Leftovers / Mystic Water / Heavy-Duty Boots (boots is just nice to have overall and considering how hazards affect the meta, i'd say its a natural fit. also thoughts on custap berry? its nice to lure everything when at low hp. can come in handy especially since you will be switching into stuff like koraidon and maybe zac. this changes how ogre is played entirely so you can not add it if you dont want to, but i think its nice.)

Finally, Tera Grass flips Kyogre’s weakness to Calyrex-Shadow’s Grass Knot and Miraidon’s Electric attacks to resists.(maybe talk about how these 2 make kyogre weak to certain mons like caly and koraidon, respectively for tera poison and tera grass- tera grass especially since koraidon has the most free uturn in existence) Kyogre is seen primarily on Bulky Offense structures that benefit from its game-defining breaking capabilities. It appreciates teammates that can wear down Koraidon, such as Landorus-T and Toxapex. Kyogre also appreciates support from Pokémon with pivot moves like Landorus-T, Koraidon, and Miraidon which can help it get into the game. (maybe add caly-s as a teammate since both just complement each-other offensively (caly-s is immune to some ways of counterplay like extreme speed and can alongside ogre beat tinglu clod and arc formes spam, etc))
