Tyrant (Tyranitar) (M) @ Leftovers

Trait: Sand Stream

EVs: 252 HP / 76 Atk / 180 SpD

Sassy Nature (+SpD, -Spe)

  • Crunch
  • Pursuit
  • Low Kick
  • Stealth Rock

The Sand Streamer Tyranitar is back for more in the Uber tier.
SpD is ridiculously high in the Sand Storm, and Tyranitar can usually get up the weather first unless some shenanigans is taking place like Iron Ball Kyogre.
Crunch is good STAB with a nice secondary effect, though low chance.
Pursuit punishes fleeing Pokemon like Kyogre locked into let's say Ice Beam.
Low Kick takes care of Dialga and gets very good coverage along with Crunch and Pursuit.
You know the deal with Stealth Rock, it helps land KOs and may make the opponent think twice about switching.

Fossil (Arceus-Rock) @ Stone Plate

Trait: Multitype

EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe

Jolly Nature (+Spe, -SpA)

  • Swords Dance
  • Stone Edge
  • Earthquake
  • Recover

Swords Dance boosts Attack to very nice levels, the Sandstorm also help in setting up.
Stone Edge is STAB and very pwr ful.
Also, something not everyone thinks about is that the Place Arceus holds does give the STAB move an extra boost, in this case Stone Edge.
Earthquake formes the very good EdgeQuake combo, giving good coverage and it takes care of Steel types resisting Stone Edge, like Dialga and Arceus Steel among others.
Recover can stall out somethings and gives Arceus more time to sweep.

Terrakion @ Choice Scarf

Trait: Justified

EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe

Jolly Nature (+Spe, -SpA)

  • Close Combat
  • Stone Edge
  • X-Scissor
  • Earthquake

Jolly Scarf outspeeds most of the Uber tier, Hasty Scarf Palkia and Hasty Scarf Reshiram for example. This makes for a solid revenger.
Close Combat is pwr ful STAB and punishes Pokemon like Darkrai. Speaking of Darkrai it might give Terrakion an attack boost thanks to Justified.
Stone Edge takes care of Pokemon like Reshiram and is STAB.
X-Scissor hits Psychic types hard and reliably.
Earthquake takes care of the Jirachi and the likes.
Terrakion also abuses the sand like cocaine which is nice. ( Speaking from personal experience, this thing hurts bad! -J98 )

Distortion (Giratina) @ Leftovers

Trait: Pressure

EVs: 248 HP / 8 Def / 252 SpD

Careful Nature (+SpD, -SpA)

  • Rest
  • Sleep Talk
  • Will-O-Wisp
  • Dragon Tail

Awesome wall!
RestTalk is for healing and doing something while healed.
It also makes Giratina able to absorb status barring a lucky freeze.
Will-O-Wisp cripples physical attackers and gives the opponent residual damage making Giratina an even better wall, dang Giratina is so bulky!!
Dragon Tail is for Phazing and does damage in the process.
Giratina is also the Spinblocker in the team.

Mad Spin! (Forretress) (M) @ Leftovers

Trait: Sturdy

EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SpD

Calm Nature (+SpD, -Atk)

  • Toxic Spikes
  • Spikes
  • Rapid Spin
  • Volt Switch

Toxic Spikes gives more residual on the opponents side.
Spikes makes the opponent think twice about switching.
The hazards also helps Giratina rack up damage on the opponents side with Dragon Tail.
Rapid Spin clears away pesky hazards.
Volt Switch can give something a free switch, scout and avoid random shenanigans like Mean Look and does some damage on top of that.
A specially defensive spread is used to take hits from the likes of Palkia better.

Mewtwo @ Life Orb

Trait: Pressure

EVs: 4 HP / 252 SpA / 252 Spe

Timid Nature (+Spe, -Atk)

  • Psystrike
  • Aura Sphere
  • Ice Beam
  • Calm Mind

Psystrike is a very good STAB move, hitting 150 Base Power with STAB and hits trough Calm Minders as well.
Aura Sphere compliments Psystrike nicely and takes out Darkrai and Dialga among others.
Ice Beam takes care of Dragons and punishes Skymin.
Calm Mind is here to boost the special bulk a bit as well as SpA but it hasn't come into much use so far.

Truely an amazing Team, and the first Team I Battled in Ubers!

Got my vote :)
How'd you get the scroll bar thingy?
@ UL I already told you that in my sun ubers team. Ugh!
@Mike Thanks a lot :)
Man, this looks so similar to my Sand ubers team, that you've got my vote :D

Also, consider Dialga.
How is your Sand Ubers?
Also Dialga would make the team too weak to Fighting and Ground, but I'll see what I can do.
Thanks for the vote :]
What did you edit trachy?
I fixed the pictures as my plan is to use this for the DB Times so I wanted it nice and purty :3
