Hawlucha @ Power Herb
Ability: Unburden
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe
Adamant Nature
- High Jump Kick
- Swords Dance
- Acrobatics
- Sky Attack

The combination of Unburden+Sky Attack+Acrobatics works wonders in OU.

Talonflame @ Life Orb
Ability: Gale Wings
EVs: 80 HP / 252 Atk / 176 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Brave Bird
- Flare Blitz
- Tailwind
- Roost

Gale Wings+Brave Bird is a crazy combination.

Aegislash @ Weakness Policy
Ability: Stance Change
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Atk / 252 SpA
Quiet Nature
- King's Shield
- Shadow Ball
- Flash Cannon
- Sacred Sword

Although it was recently banned into Ubers, it was in OU long enough to wreck everything up with King's Shield and to count as an "OU threat".

No Garchomp or Rotom-W?
Those two have been in OU for so long for a reason
Garchomp is getting used less and less. This isn't Ou anymore, Garchomp is too powerful for UU but it wouldn't be OU anymore if it wasn't. Hydreigon's only UU because the typing isn't good anymore (I loved that thing ;~;)
he asked about gen 6 Pokemon
Oh, I'm guessing that doesn't count Mega Evolutions... right?
Just noticed that for whatever reason, Greninja is not here o.o
Also Florges and Goodra
I wasnt trying to include all of them, this is a thread question after all.
What I meant was how has gen 6 affected threats and which ones are they

You know what is a big threat even in Ubers? This guy

Mega Gengar can put a huge hole in teams with its "Perish Song + Shadow Tag" strategy. First it uses Perish Song, and Shadow Tag locks in the other Pokemon. Then when perish song is over, Gengar switches out, and the other Pokemon has nothing to do but DIE. Why do you think it was banned to Ubers?
The set:

Gengar@Gengarite
Trait: Levitate ---> Shadow Tag
EVs: 4 HP, 252 SpA, 252 Spe
Modest Nature
Perish Song
• Shadow Ball
• Sludge Bomb
• Substitute
