It's nice. But flygon may give you some trouble. he walls rotom, hits cobalion with earthquake, and often has uturn to hurt shaymin and and your singing psychic. Plus taking a stab outrage is never fun. To hit him, you can throw an ice attack on something, maybe rotom or honckrow with hp ice
. There's a lot of leftovers. I don't know what that's all about. I take it this isn't a hyperoffensive approach.
Flygon in UU? I'll see how THAT works some day.
Erick, Flygon is extremely common in UU. It is severely outclassed in OU and Ubers.
I shy away from it due to Abomsnow.
| 53   | Abomasnow          |  4.423% |

I wouldn't shy away from Flygon just for that lol.
Flygon can learn Fire punch so I wouldn't worry about that. Flygon is quite common in UU, so if you are unsure Weavile takes care of it with Fake out and Ice shard before it can even move. Tho it looks like it doesn't synergise to well with this team, but it's a thought.

Okay, upon request, I will make my return to the RMT by answering this one. Your Team did really well on the replays, and those guys ratings were really high(but the second guy didn't play good xP) And Im still going on about the whole OHKO kn Cofagrigus, i mean, that thing was handed some high class shiz.. Anyway, the Team is ok, you just seem to have issues with the whole "offensive pressure" deal. You don't really have a counter to Hyper Offensive Scarfers such as Darumatan(ik), Victini(V-Create or Blue Flare), Mienshao(Reckless), and upon other things. A rule to follow is that you need to have a Scarfer on the Team. It's a must to bring you momentum, and apply pressure. Looking at this, Darumatan is one of your worst nightmares, and you seem to struggle with the likes of Yanmega, and Togekiss in UU. And with the Fighting Types down, you easily fall to Rock Types such as Band Rhyperior, who takes hits solidly, or Pokemon with Rove Coverage Moves. Your weaknesses are shown below:

enter image description here

Any Scarf Fire Type, with Hitmontop removed, can destroy you easily. Just a note. Without further adu, onto the rate.


Meloetta

This thing is a boss. Dat Sexy OHKO on Cofag... It's solid.

Honchkrow

Ok, I might seem a bit off, but Substitute on Most of your Pokes will mostly not do good on Stall Teams, which run Toxic Spikes, or Hyper Offensive Teams overall. With the likes of this Honchkrow, nothing is provided, except an immunity to Psychic Moves, which is not really common in UU except on an occassional Slowbro or Azelf, at which you will lose 1v1 with Slowbro, and ruined by Choiced variants of Azelf. I highly suggest replacing Honchkrow, I mean, you have Cobalion for offense anyways.. That Pokemon is Darumatan is still weak to Rock, but i'm not done with my rate yet xP. Darumatan provides the Fire Coverage you need to remove Bug Types, while providing at least one Scarfer for your Team. Not to mention i'm afraid of it, so OP..

Darmanitan (M) @ Choice Scarf
Trait: Sheer Force
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spd
Jolly Nature
- Flare Blitz
- Superpower
- Earthquake
- U-Turn

This is the standard Darumatan. You should know how much a threat this is, and what it does even. This is now your Offensive Scarfer.

Hitmontop

I like this guy, I really do, but it seems a bit lackluster when paired with Cobalion. Dual Fighting Types are sometimes recommended on Hyper Offensive Team just because of the coverage provided by them, but it doesn't really work in this case. Hitmontop is there just to wall with Intimidate, but there are better Pokemon that do this job for this Team, not to mention you aren't running lets say, a Yanmega to need a Spinner anyway. Hitmontop is to be replaced with the rather odd Gligar. Gligar is the best Physical Wall in UU(except if Dusclops gets a WoW off). And it provided much needed resistances and Stealth Rock support. With Gligar, you have a solid counter to the #1 counter to this Team, Heracross.

Gligar (F) @ Eviolite
Trait: Immunity
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Atk / 252 Def
Impish Nature
- Stealth Rock
- Earthquake
- Roost
- Aerial Ace/ U-Turn

Ok, let me explain. Gligar needs to run full Defensive to take as little damage as possible from Heracross, which is where the gimmick in Aerial Ace comes into play.

4Atk Gligar (Neutral) Aerial Ace vs 4HP/0Def Heracross (Neutral): 87% - 103% (264 - 312 HP). Guaranteed 2HKO. 20% chance to OHKO.

You can Run it if you want, if not, runnU-Turn for scouting and gaining Momentum.

Rotom-H

Rotom-H is eh here. Choice Specs is not really what you should pickedmfor this guy, as you need a Scarfer. Since you now have Darmanitan, you need something that can Quad Core with the whole Shaymin/Cobalion/ Gligar core. And that Pokemon is Slowking(Yes, last replacement xP). Slowking provides much needed wallpower to dual core with Gligar, and typing needed to provide resistances to Fire and Fighting. It does the the only good thing your Rotom did, and that was to provide Fire resistance to the Team.

Slowking (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Regenerator
EVs: 248 HP / 72 Def / 188 SpD
Calm Nature
- Scald
- Flamethrower
- Slack Off
- Thunder Wave

This is basically the SDef variant of Slowbro. EVs provide mixed Defense on this guy, aiming more on the SDef side. Regengeratornis there because its the best Ability it got. And despite it being a female, it's still a king. Scald is STAB with a nice Burnnchance to provide better mixed walling. Flamethrower covers Shaymin, Virizion, Heracross, and Yanmega switch-Ins for nice damage. Slack Off allows for better stalling chances when you are sure you can wall the opponent. Thunder Wave is the most important Move, providing status that allows for Cobalion to destroy its once feared counters. And you get hax to your favor a lot, no?

Cobalion

Shofu's Cobalion, good. Keep it.

--

Shaymin

Shaymin is good, but now that you have Slowking, you don't need the EVs of a SDef Wall on it anymore, also not to mention that Slowking will always do this job better than Shaymin would. This opens up the only spot possible, Offensive. Since you use Leech Seed well, you can go for an Offensive Leech Seeder, or just plain old Offensive LO Shaymin. Your choice. The Movesets for both are:

Shaymin @ Leftovers
Trait: Natural Cure
EVs: 252 SAtk / 4 SDef / 252 Spd
Timid Nature
- Leech Seed
- Seed Flare
- Hidden Power Ice/ Air Slash
- Substitute

Offensive Leech Seeder.

Shaymin @ Life Orb
Trait: Natural Cure
EVs: 252 SAtk / 4 SDef / 252 Spd
Timid Nature
- Seed Flare
- Earth Power
- Hidden Power Ice/ Air Slash
- Rest

Offensive LO.

Now, with this Team, the synergy between them is way better. Take a look for yourself:

Good luck with Team, i'm positive it'll do better than the previous Team! :3
