i.e. A 6 IV foreign Ditto for breeding and Masuda Method, a Pokemon with Flame Body for faster egg hatching, a team of 6 Pickup users to farm items, etc. What are some other useful utility Pokemon/abilities?

I always make a utility set with a bunch of stuff:

A synchronize team, usually gardevoir, with all the usable natures, and healing wish.
A team of ditto with the more commonly used sweeper natures, just because sometimes it's easier to use an everstone for the right nature than syncro for it.
A pickup team, really easy in this game with lv60 linoone available.
A team of compound eyes, frisk, and thief, for getting wild items like Light Ball. Usually a KO'd joltik with a Noivern.
A false swipe + status catcher. Gallade and Bisharp work wonders. Scrappy Pangoro for ghosts.
A Trace pokemon for ability checking, usually from one of the reject ralts from the syncro team.

And a Camerupt for infinite lava buckets /wronggame
No nothing no creole.

Something high-leveled with Damp is useful if hunting things that explode, in case you run into a shiny.

Steam Engine also has the Flame Body/Magma Armor effect on Eggs.

Now that Pokemon Home is out, here's what I've got so far (imported via Bank):

-Hatcher: Flame Body Chandelure
-Catcher: Yawn/Hold Back Snorlax (Gen 7 Event), Alt is False Swipe/Sleep Powder Venusaur
-Breeders: Perfect IV Ditto of various natures
-Synchronizers/Ability Checkers: Xatu, Beheeyem, Musharna, and Mew of various natures and Simple Beam/Worry Seed to check abilities
-Pick-up artists: Meowth, Linoone, Munchlax, Diggersby, Gourgeist
-Thief: Galvantula w/ Compoundeyes and Thief

The other field abilities are either not that useful or easy enough to pick out a random Pokemon with that ability in your box.
I still support Stannis Baratheon, the one true king of Westeros.
