So this is my first Ubers team so far its been very sucsessfull, Ive thought about allot of checks and counters as well as tried as much as possible to have a nice team build and a variety of bulk and offence.
Kyogre @ Choice Specs
EVs: 156 HP / 100 SAtk / 252 Spd
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
- Water Spout
- Hydro Pump
- Ice Beam
Kyogre will be in and out due to scarf, It has great bulk and suvive many attacks.
Water spout will kill nearly any lead even groudon in the sun.
Thunder kills scarfed Kyogres and rain team members such as manaphy with ease.
I can break sashes from pokemon like deoxys-d and will wreck other common leads though i dont like darkrai, if needed in this situation i can switch to wobbuffet who is less important and can either mirror coat or encore darkrai into a safe switch for kyogre.
Lugia @ Leftovers
EVs: 252 HP / 216 Def / 40 SDef
Impish Nature (+Def -Spatk)
- Dragon Tail
- Ice Beam
The moveset is pretty self explanitary and lugia in general is a Ubers beast and phazes as well as messes with the opponents.
Lugia walls Giratina origin form without dragon tail but as for ones with dragon tail lugia is normally quiker in the priority race.
Toxic is for predicted switch ins to break pokemon such as lugias multiscale or weather threats such as groudon.
Wobbuffet (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Shadow Tag
EVs: 252 HP / 192 Def / 64 SDef
Careful Nature (+SDef, -SAtk)
- Mirror Coat
Dont look down on this team because wobbuffet in your opinion may be cheap but i love his role in taking hits then encoring them.
When they are encored they cant switch plus i can predict to use counter or mirror coat.
Encore provides a safe switch, for example they use flamethrower, this lets me do a safe switch to kyogre with no risk of loosing much hp.
I normally use wobbuffet to safe switch into ferrothorn or shaymin who can set up leech seed to pass to other members such as giratina who have lots of bulk who can then phaze with ferrothorns spikes.
Shaymin-S @ Life Orb
Trait: Serene Grace
EVs: 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
- Grass Knot
- Earth Power
- Seed Flare
- Leech Seed
Grass knot kills groudon and kyogre with reliable accuracy and high powered stab, where as seed flare is for the lighter users who cause problems such as darkrai or deoxys.
Leech seed is healling and can pass to my walls.
Shaymin chuckles at reshiram in rain and can out speed and then use earth power.
Thanks to rain its weaknesses are cut giving me a better chance of suvivng with its frail stats.
Ferrothorn (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Iron Barbs
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SDef
Sassy Nature (+SDef, -Spd)
- Leech Seed
- Gyro Ball
- Power Whip
Ferrothorn plays a big part in this team, he walls special based deoxys and has taken 70% from one superpower.
He sets up spikes which is a major part in the team as i lack a stealth rocker and two of my pokem on spend most of the time phazing.
He is also one of the only pysical pokemon on my team.
Giratina-O @ Griseous Orb
EVs: 188 HP / 252 Atk
Adamant Nature (+Atk -Spatk)
- Thunder Wave
- Dragon Tail
Personally i prefer normal form but i lacked offence during the building of the team.
Ive grown to like this guy as he has almost the same bulk as the normal form but with this set i have a good offence as well.
Thunder wave cripples sweepers and more importantly kyogre.
Giratina also is an effective spin blocker against forretress who doesnt like spikes and dragon tail.
As for earthquake it is my only effective counter for forretress appart from stalling it, but by then i have 6 layers of hazards up which has caused me problems.
He is also an effective switch in to take a fire punch from groudon aimed at shaymin or ferrothorn.
I have tried shadow sneak but it does not finish the foe as it isnt powerfull enough.
Problems and counters
Please suggest some effective counters.
The biggest pain i have.
Due to rain i have avoided fire moves but appart from that im not sure any of my pokemon can actually learn fire moves, i have considered hp fire for shaymin as my only other counter is encoring it into stealth rock then dragon tail and stalling it.
I seem to lack a bit of psyichal offence as ferrothorn can use it but in ubers it doesnt do half as much as it would in ou and as for giratina i seem to normally lock myself into dragon tail.
Ill finish later
