Please rate my new uber team.

OK, I don't usually delve into ubers, but I was bored and decided to try making an uber team, so here you are rating it (hopefully). Only one of these pokemon isn't uber, so here goes nothing.

Doexys (Speed Form) - Lead - Focus Sash
EVs: 252 Speed, 252 HP, 4 Special Attack
Nature: Modest
Ability: Pressure
Moves:
Spikes (No Explanation Needed, AKA NEN)
Stealth Rock (NEN)
Recover (Helps set up spikes and stealth rock)
Psychic (STAB)

Doexys is basically tasked with using his flabbergasting speed to set up spikes and stealth rock, with the help of recover to regain HP for setting up more hazards. I invested some EVs in HP to allow him hopefully to take a few hits, but im not sure if this is a good idea or not.

Excadrill - Physical Sweeper/Spinner - Expert Belt
EVs: 252 Attack, 252 Speed, 4 HP
Nature: Jolly
Ability: Mold Breaker
Moves:
Swords Dance (NEN)
Earthquake (STAB)
Brick Break (Coverage, kills screens)
Rapid Spin (NEN)

Excadrill's job is to clean out screens and entry hazards whilst destroying the opposing team. The Expert Belt is because with Earthquake and Brick Break he covers 10 types, which should allow him to make good use of it.

Rayquaza - Mixed Sweeper - Persim Berry
EVs: 128 Sp.Attack, 128 Attack, 252 Speed, 4 HP
Nature: Hardy
Ability: Air Lock
Moves:
Outrage (STAB)
Extremespeed (Priority)
Surf (Coverage)
Earth Power (Coverage)

Not much to say about Rayquaza here, the fact that he is mixed instead of Physical/Special allows him to dispatch Physical and Special Walls/Tanks. Rayquaza is holding the Persim berry instaed of the Lum berry so that it does not get used up by a status problem before it can heal Rayquaza's confusion, a side-effect of his super heavy hitting Outrage.

Darkrai - Special Sweeper - Wide Lens
EVs: 252 Speed, 252 Sp.Attack, 4 HP
Nature: Timid
Ability: Bad Dreams
Moves:
Nasty Plot (NEN)
Dark Void (Puts the enemy to sleep, allowing Darkrai to set up with Nasty Plot)
Dark Pulse (STAB)
Psychic/Shadow Ball (Coverage (Both))

Again, not much to say, Darkrai is holding the Wide Lens to make Dark Void a weensy bit more reliable.

Blaziken - Battering Ram - Choice Band
EVs: 252 Attack, 252 Speed, 4 HP
Nature: Adamant
Ability: Speed Boost
Moves:
Hi Jump Kick (STAB, Devastating with choice band boost)
Flare Blitz (STAB, Devastating with choice band)
Brave Bird (Coverage)
Earthquake (Coverage)

Blaziken's job is to raze the opponent's team using raw power (usually coming From Hi Jump Kick), and with a nifty speed boost from speed boost (a little repetitive I know) Blaziken will be a force to be reckoned with.

Ferrothorn - Mixed Wall - Leftovers
EVs: 252 Defense, 252 Special Defense, 4 HP
Nature: Jolly
Ability: Iron Barbs
Moves:
Leech Seed (HP recovery, Damages the enemy a bit)
Ingrain (HP recovery)
Protect (Stalls for HP recovery from Leftovers, Leech Seed, and Ingrain)
Seed Bomb (STAB)

this is pretty much your typical Ferrothorn, set up for 1/4 HP regain every turn. Even though this guy isn't uber, he's still pretty boss, not to mention the uber tier has a frustrating lack of walls.

So, there you go. Please give suggestions for each pokemon, along with a letter grade. Also, If you think a pokemon could be replaced with something more beneficial, please do tell. Thanks in advance - Swagg

Best answer

Deoxys
Recover isnt really needed as it redundent thanks to deoxys speeds terrible defences.
50/95/95 isnt the best defensive spread, but what makes deoxys uber is the fact that it A.has the quiqest taunt in game B.Focus sash allows it to set up at least two layers of hazards.
Taunt is a good replacement also superpower may prove a more effective move on deoxys as it allows it to hit tyranitar leads hard which will try and kill you with pursuit.
it also allows you to damage pokemon that could really mees with your team like darkrai or chansey and blissey.
Psychic may get stab but it provides little coverage and allows it to be walled by chansey if you keep it for the duration of battle.
Try 252hp 4atk 252speed and jolly nature which will allow you to have a chance of taunting apposing deoxys leads.

Excadrill
I like your idea with brick break breaking screens but only one pokemon ever carries screens in ubers and that is deoxys-s which its suicide lead set out classes it and dual screens is rarely seen.
Rock slide allows you to hit rayquaza and ho-ohs which your team has problems with.
252speed isnt needed give it very few in speed.
Im not sure the exact amount but give it evs in speed untill it has 218 speed that allows it to hit non scarfed kyogres which never run more than 217 speed.
A swords dance earthquake hits kyogre very hard.
Invest the other evs in hp and run adamant.
Because of its base 88 speed it doesnt out speed barely anything thanks to all the other base 90 speed ubers wrecking it.

Rayquaza
Hardy nature? Try this set off smogon.
@life orb
4Hp 252Spatk 252Speed
Naive
-Draco meteor
-Fire blast
-Extreme speed
-Brick break/Outrage
That set may prove very good to you, i have used it once before it was good and i have seen pb use a similar set with great outcomes.

Darkrai
Good just life orb over wide lens and shadow ball over psychic.

Blazkin
Dont use choice band.
Go with focus sash and protect, hi jump kick, flare blitz and swords dance
or use life orb and drop swords dance for something like earthquake.
Protect gives it a chance to get a free speed boost.

Ferrothorn
252hp 48atk 208spdef it already has good def but it needs a buffering in atk and hp.
Gyro ball/power whip.
Power whip hits very little but does hit kyogre and ferrothorn is your only safe switch in for kyogre which your team has a big problem with.
But it covers very little past there doing almost no damage to groudons.
Where as gyro ball with sassy and no ivs hits many pokemon hard including 2hit koing a deoxys speed.
It can come in and take hits from scarfers then deal good damage while stalling.
Ingrain isnt needed you could run spikes/thunder wave/toxic personally i would use spikes or t wave using spikes allows you to give deoxys a screen such as light screen.

Well you asked me to answer so i did i hope this helps to some extent.

Shadow Ball is useless on a Darkrai though. Dark and Ghost cover too many similar things to be used together.
Oh yeh.
Focus blast will be a solid replacement I think but I've never used darkrai I find them noobish.

THIS TEAM IN TOTAL I WOULD RATE OUT OF 100 ABOUT 96. I THINK YOU SHOULD WORK A BIT ON YOUR BLAZIKENS MOVES SINCE TWO OF THEM ARE RECOIL MOVES. ONE AWESOME THING IS YOUR FERROTHORN WITH ITS HP MOVES. FOR YOUR DARKRAI, INSTEAD OF NASTY PLOT, TEACH IT NIGHTMARE SO THAT BOTH BAD DREAMS AND NIGHTMARE CAN SLOWLY HELP TAKE DOWN ANNOYING OPPONENTS. HOPE THIS HELPED.

Whoah there boy, easy on the caps.
Since Blaziken is a choice band user, and he will usually be using Hi Jump Kick most of the time, I'm not really concerned about his 2 recoil moves. While that is a good strategy for darkrai, it would leave me without a special sweeper, and a special sweeper is kind of essential. I am thinking about changing blaziken for a choice band zekrom. Thanks for the high rate and the ideas. lol I think you have a caps problem.
Oi! i do not. now i will  never use caps again...
