The ever centralizing Kyogre that dominated all the Ubers format before Gen 6 is back again, especially with the removal of Primal Groudon which was the best solid switch-in to it. This Gen, we will see Ferrothorn, Blissey, Eternatus, etc. all of which wall standard Specs and Scarf set. But, this gimmicky as well as unpredictable set will create havoc.

- Sheer Cold
- Sleep Talk
Block + CM Rest sets are really good, the only thing is that they don't see a Power Whip Ferrothorn or Teleport Blissey. Outside of that, they have little counterplay. But, SheerCold RestTalk has even less counter play, limited to Kyurem-White.
Maximum Defense allows to tank hits from physical attackers well. Scald is chosen because of its burn. Once you burn Ferrothorn, it can't virtually touch you. Then, you start spamming Sheer Cold. Blissey can't do anything as well since Toxic gets shut down by Rest. Sheer Cold, as previously told has almost no switch-ins has only 20% accuracy and 8 PP, which is why Sleep Talk is there. Remember, it's for destroying slower and passive mons.
Do not blame hax.
This set has no counterplay except Kyurem-White. Therefore, Kyurem-White saw an increased usage in AG Snake tour.
So, that's all about these set. Until you see Kyurem-White have fun landing Sheer Cold!
