They're all tiers which are used to categorize Pokemon by the strength.

They are tiers! Overused, Never Used, Underused, Little Cup are the first four. Ubers consists of mostly legendary Pokemon, and also includes really strong non-legendary Pokemon, mostly because of abilities. I hope this helps! -Jellohamster
