Here it is:

Kyogre @ Leftovers
Trait: Drizzle
Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
EVs: 252 SAtk/ 212 HP/ 44 Spe
- Thunder
- Rest
- Sleep Talk
- Surf
Weather Lead. 44 Spe EVs makes him fast but his weather will activate last in a weather war.

Scizor @ Choice Band
Trait: Technician
Jolly Nature (+Spe, -SAtk)
EVs: 252 Spe/ 4 SDef/ 252 Atk
- U-Turn
- Bullet Punch
- Pursuit
- Superpower
changed from Genesect to add more Physical offense to this team. its a banded Scizor. i don't need to say any more.....

Mewtwo @ Life Orb
Trait: Pressure
Timid Nature (+Spe, -Atk)
EVs: 252 Spe/ 252 SAtk/ 4 HP
- Psystrike
- Aurasphere
- Ice Beam
- Calm Mind
Special Sweeper. a few CMs plus Life Orb hurt big time and Psystrike allows it to burn through Blissey and Chansey without investing in Atk or Switching out.

Palkia @ Choice Scarf
Trait: Pressure
Naive Nature (+Spe, -SDef)
EVs: 252 Spe/ 212 SAtk/ 44 HP
- Spatial Rend
- Thunder
- Surf
- Aurasphere
Revenge Killer and Sweeper. Defensive typing adds bulk to aid in sweeps.

Thunderus-T @ Life Orb
Trait: Volt Absorb
TTimid Nature (+Spe, -Atk)
EVs: 252 Spe/ 252 SAtk/ 4 Def
- Thunder
- Focus Blast
- Hidden Power [Ice]
- Agility
Sweeper. also helps check threats to Kyogre. owns most all.

Dialga @ Leftovers
Trait: Pressure
Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
EVs: 252 HP/ 200 SAtk/ 56 Spe
- Dragon Pulse
- Stealth Rock
- Aurasphere
- Dragon Tail
My Defensive Pivot. with all its bulk, it can easily switch in and either force a switch or Phaze and set up Rocks. Aurasphere covers Steel that resist STAB and Ice type not to mention the lurking Darkrai. Dragon Pulse is STAB without recoil, so i can better is Dialga as a Pivot.

and that's all. thanks for coming, hope you enjoyed the show.

you can also try a Recover > CM on Mewtwo, as Life orb + damage from the opponent will kill you off quickly
OR, try a CM + Leftovers combo for a little more longetivity
Actually... I've found that Mewtwo to be kind of sucky and die quickly. No offense.

And great team BTW.
if i ditch Mewtwo i would have to stick something like Scarf Deoxys-A or XK Arceus in its place.

and thanks, i haven't had much experience in Ubers so that's good to know :)
Change Surf to Water Spout for Kyogre.
Bug Bite over Pursuit for Scizor.
Nasty Plot over Agility for Thundurus-Therian.
this is my logic for those choices:

Water spout is dependant on HP. if Kyogre is asleep and can't Rest again it does garbage for damage. Surf is weaker but more consistent.

Pursuit traps Giratina-A, Mewtwo, Deoxys-S, Mew, and the like. not too many Berries are even used in Ubers. its all Choice Items, Life Orb, Lefties, and the occasional XBelt. U-Turn may not get Tech boost but it makes him a looming threat that can pop in and out throughout the match and put bug dents in the many Psychic, Dark, and Grass types in Ubers.

Agility was used over NP because even after NP, ScarfSect wrecks Thunderus-T with Ice Beam. but Agility eliminates that threat.

if you can give me a reason why those suggestions are better, i will gladly look at them as options. and i do appreciate the input. i see your point but i want more pros/cons vs my picks.
