Cinccino (Normal): Cinccino are very concerned with cleanliness and get quite annoyed when dirty. When attacked by 'dirty' moves (e.g. Mud Bomb), they will become annoyed and gain a slight boost to their attack power but have a slight chance of disobeying attacks in order to clean themselves. Their tufty fur makes them resistant to spore based moves and is sufficiently anti static to deflect weak Electric moves like Thunder Wave. Chained moves like Double Slap will be faster and more powerful when used by this Pokémon.

Hydreigon (Dark/Dragon): Hydreigon are extremely frightening, violent, temperamental and intimidating Pokémon. They levitate almost constantly, though are somewhat slow due to their size. Their hands have developed into two heads, both completely under the control of the main head and used to attack, both physically and specially, and their Tri Attack is more powerful than normal. They are extremely sensitive to movement and are able to target a foe even at a significant distance or if they are hiding. Despite their great power, they are very hard to control and easy to anger, and may potentially disobey their trainer, especially if angered or otherwise displeased.

Charizard (Fire/Flying): Charizard are slow and cumbersome when on land but are able fliers. They are hot tempered and resistant to fear attacks. However, they are easily angered and confused. They have flaming tails, which can be used for illumination and may burn foes if there is prolonged contact. Charizard have slightly more Dragon energy than other Fire-types and, as starter Pokémon, their Fire-type attacks are slightly more powerful when they drop below 1/3 health. Charizard is unique in having two Mega Formes. In its X Forme, it becomes Fire/Dragon typed whilst still retaining the flight abilities it possessed as a Charizard. Against any Pokémon that would reasonably be afraid of Charizard X, its fear-inducing attacks are more effective, and it becomes much more physical, giving attacks used with it's claws a 20% boost. Its Y Forme is slightly smaller and lighter than the X Forme, and is a nearly unparalleled fast and agile flier, able to fly with the speed and agility of a Pidgeot. Its powerful wings also grant it a 20% boost to wind moves. It also benefits greatly from the sun, the heat from its body causing sun to last two turns longer than normal.

Charmeleon (Fire): Charmeleon are the fastest of their line on the ground, though not as agile as their previous stage. They are harder to scare, but are more easily angered or confused. They have flaming tails, which can be used for illumination and may burn foes if there is prolonged contact. As starter Pokémon, their Fire-type attacks are slightly more powerful when they drop below 1/3 health.

Tauros (Normal): Tauros are only know to appear in male varieties. Tauros are powerful chargers. Any tackling or ramming attacks do extra damage, as Tauros continues over the opponent, trampling them. Any attack a Tauros executes with its hooves is 1.2x as powerful. Tauros are easily angered and confused. Miltank and Tauros are speculated to have a common ancestor, so the Attracts of both species are considered to work as if both Miltank and Tauros were the same species of Pokémon.
Here are all of the weird anger SCs I could dig up. The first three involve disobedience (which we should really just nix as an SC drawback period) and the last three are kind of nonstandard/potentially outdated. Compare them to the standard fare of anger related SCs:

Quote:
Granbull (Fairy): Granbull are proud Pokémon and more susceptible to moves that induce anger. However, they are also resistant to fear-inducing effects. Their hearing is more sensitive than normal, at the expense of being more vulnerable to sound-based status moves, and they have an excellent sense of smell which allows them to track opponents and tell the real clone in a Double Team. Granbull's biting attacks are 1.2x more powerful.
I don't think there's any reason to make the latter three Pokemon extraordinarily susceptible to confusion; I understand the intent of the line, but it should really be changed to just "anger" to avoid potential confusion. Additionally, it should be clarified in each SC that said rage can be written out via bio, as in the case of Mankey/Primeape berserk stuff.

Also, throwing this out there, why isn't Gyarados susceptible to anger as well?

Quote:
Gyarados (Water/Flying): Gyarados are terrifying and their fear based attacks are much more effective than normal. Gyarados are equally at home on land or in the water. They are not particularly agile in either medium despite their Flying typing, however. They can see in the dark. Their incredible jaw strength gives them a 20% boost to their biting attacks. In its Mega Forme, Gyarados becomes Water/Dark typed. Its appearance gives off an extremely intimidating aura, causing smaller and more timid Pokémon to cower, reducing the willingness of its foes to attack, as well as giving it the ability to intimidate Pokémon who would normally hold a resistance.
