Deoxys-S (Deoxys-D) @ Leftovers
Trait: Pressure
EVs: 252 HP / 128 Def / 128 SDef
Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
- Calm Mind
- Psychic
- Taunt
- Stealth Rock

My Lead Pokemon. Even though it's OU, it's still pretty effective. Calm Mind is for Tanking, Psychic is STAB, Taunt is preventing other Leads to set up, and Stealth Rock is for setting up.

Pokemaster (Arceus) @ Life Orb
Trait: Multitype
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spd
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Swords Dance
- Shadow Claw
- Earthquake
- Return

Named after the maker of this awesome site, and both are awesome. A Physical Sweeper, Swords Dance doubles my Attack. (Deadly!) Shadow Claw covers Ghost types, Earthquake is for Coverage, and Return is simply STAB.

Gareth (Dialga) @ Choice Specs
Trait: Pressure
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 SDef
Calm Nature (+SDef, -Atk)
- Dragon Pulse
- Earth Power
- Thunderbolt
- Ice Beam

My Specs Tank named after my best friend (in real life). Dragon Pulse is STAB, Earth Power is for covering other Steel types, and Thunderbolt and Ice Beam make up the famous Bolt-Beam Combonation.

Zeus (Zekrom) @ Choice Band
Trait: Teravolt
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spd
Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)
- Bolt Strike
- Outrage
- Rock Slide
- Shadow Claw

My Banded Sweeper named after the Greek god of lightning. Bolt Strike is STAB, and coupled with the Band... Outrage is more STAB, and I don't care if a Steel type comes along, I'll just kill it. Rock Slide is just a good move, as is Shadow Claw. With Rock Slide I Flinch them to death, and with Shadow Claw I Crit them to death!

Kamikaze (Rayquaza) @ Muscle Band
Trait: Air Lock
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Outrage
- Swords Dance
- Brick Break
- Earthquake

A Pokemon that is just god-like. Outrage is STAB, and it just decimates things. Swords Dance doubles my Attack (!!!!), and Brick Break covers Rock types and Ice types. Earthquake is just a good move.

Fate Itself (Darkrai) @ Life Orb
Trait: Bad Dreams
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
- Dark Void
- Dream Eater
- Dark Pulse
- Ice Beam

Finally, Pokemon #491, and my favorite Pokemon of all time!!! Darkrai is obviously named Fate Itself, not only because of me (it's my favorite Pokemon!!!) but it controls the game. It just... Is Fate Itself. Dark Void is for putting the foe to sleep, and makes Dream Eater work. Dark Pulse is STAB, and Ice Beam is for all the Dragon types in Uber.

I'd prefer that only the Editors and Experts, Shxatoap, MewCreation, Mew, Hex, and linkpower22 answer. Although, you the average user can answer. I'll only keep it if you do a really good job, though.
Have fun!

Deoxys is used as a lead here, one thing it is better at than Giratina.
@ Mew: Some noob thinking that I'm a total noob for using all legendaries. Incidentally, that's what Uber is XD
Thanks trachy for telling サザンドラ that Deoxys is a lead, but I'll go into deeper depth here.

" Giratina has way better HP, although it is 30 points down in base Defence and Special Defense, it makes up for it in HP. " Yeah, I'll admit that Giratina does have a lot more HP.

" It also is a great Resttalker, and has a common Normal type immunity. " Resttalk is pretty risky, I've seen people use stuff like Rest over and over. And when was the last time you saw a Normal move used in Uber?

" It has resistances to Fire, Water, Grass, and Electric, which means it halves damage, so it can stay at a high amount of HP and get a free switch in. " I know what Pokemon have resistances to, thank you very much. I've memorized the type chart, which is more than some people can say. Fire, Water, Grass, and Electric moves are pretty much never used in Uber, since Dragons are way too common.

" Giratina simply has move pros than cons compared to Deoxys-D, which imo is OU for a reason." The one thing I really want from Deoxys-D is to set up Rocks, something not very many Pokemon useable in Uber are capable of. Deoxys-D also has a more reliable form of recovery (Recover, which doesn't make me go to sleep). I am listening to you, I just wanted to clear this up. I'm not saying you suck, because you don't.
Actually, Water and Electric type moves are two of the most common attacking types in Uber thanks to Kyogre being the most popular Pokemon.

Fire also sees a good amount of use, not as high as Water and Electric, but still a high amount thanks to Groudon. Thanks to Groudon and Kyogre, Grass is also used at a good amount with Solarbeam and Grass Knot.

Just wanted to clear that up. It isn't important to this though.

Giratina is in my opinion the better wall, but since it is a lead position being talked about, that point is irrelevant.
Thanks for clearing some of those things up for me trachy XD I really haven't done a lot of Uber battling, so I'm a lot better at OU.

Best answer

Deoxysis

Maybe take some EVs from S.Def and put them in Defense as you already have Calm-mind to boost it. Or you could drop Calm mind totally and get Recover for healing.


Pokemaster

Swap Return for Extreme Speed so you get a strong priority move and put 4 evs in Hp.


Gareth

No suggestions.


Zeus

Put 4 Evs in HP then you could do two things to improve him A. Choice-scarf and Adamant nature, or B. Swap Shadow-claw for Hone-claws and Rock-slide for Stone edge so you get all your move at perfect acc and the choice band boost without the band and you could give him leftovers.


Raquaza

Good but go with Jolly as he could use the speed boost or you could swap S-dance for D-dance.


Darkrai

The same set I use it is awesome.
