Teal Mask Ogerpon has the ability Defiant, which boosts her already high Attack stat for  every stat that is lowered, and gets Embody Aspect which will boost her Speed when Terastallized. With her Attack stat raised and STAB, Ogerpon can use Horn Leech to deal big damage while healing and Ivy Cudgel for some powerful attacks. These attacks will hit a lot harder if you use Grassy Terrain beforehand.

With her Fire typing, Ivy Cudgel gets an increase in power from Sunny Day and Ogerpon’s Synthesis will heal even more HP.

Cornerstone Mask Ogerpon gets Sturdy, letting her survive any powerful attacks. But Embody Aspect will boost her Defense and her Special Defense gets an increase during Sandstorm weather.

This works with a move like Charm for lowering an opponent’s Attack stat. Bringing Swords Dance and Ivy Cudgel into the mix, Cornerstone Mask Ogerpon has a mix of good offense and defense.

Basically, Ogerpon is a very versatile Pokemon. Every form has its strengths and setbacks, so either of the four options is a good pick!
