The Team


Yveltal @ Leftovers
Ability: Dark Aura
EVs: 4 Atk / 252 SpA / 252 SpD
Mild Nature
- Oblivion Wing
- Dark Pulse
- Heat Wave
- Sucker Punch

The best Calyrex-Shadow counter. EVs let it take special hits while still doing damage. Sucker Punch also helps against Scarf-Kyogre

Zygarde @ Aguav Berry
Ability: Power Construct
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Atk / 252 Def
Impish Nature
- Thousand Arrows
- Breaking Swipe
- Rock Slide
- Dragon Dance

My defensive wall. Can live 2 play roughs and kill zacian at the same time.

Zacian-Crowned @ Rusted Sword
Ability: Intrepid Sword
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Behemoth Blade
- Play Rough
- Close Combat
- Wild Charge

Standard Zacian set

Calyrex-Shadow @ Choice Scarf
Ability: As One (Spectrier)
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Astral Barrage
- Psyshock
- Draining Kiss
- Leaf Storm

Scarf to outspeed most tailwind mons + Regieleki. 2 mons who this team doesn’t do well against.

Necrozma-Dusk-Mane @ Weakness Policy
Ability: Prism Armor
EVs: 112 HP / 200 Def / 196 SpD
Brave Nature
- Sunsteel Strike
- Photon Geyser
- Earthquake
- Morning Sun

Can live hits from Zacian and +2 Xerneas. WP for better countering Yveltal

Palkia @ Life Orb
Ability: Pressure
EVs: 56 Def / 200 SpA / 252 SpD
Modest Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Hydro Pump
- Spacial Rend
- Thunder
- Trick Room

SpD for better taking Scarf Kyogre Water spouts. Trick Room to help against Trick Room teams.

I am OK with replacing Palkia for another pokemon that counters Kyogre and prevents Trick Room.

All your pokemon suggestions must be obtainable in Pokémon Sword and Shield or Lets go Pikachu without Pokémon Home.

First of all, let's go through your mons one by one
Yveltal: Good Moveset but run life orb over lefties so it hits harder. Plus it can heal off life orb damage with oblivion wing and run timid or modest.
Zygarde: I understand not wanting to be locked in to and confused by Outrage because I have that feeling too but Outrage simply has way more power for you to choose Breaking swipe over it for dragon stab. Plus usually, the substitute sets on Zygarde are better.
Zacian: Good set but if I had to make a change to the set I would probably swap wild charge with swords dance but the set is fine even if you don't change it
Calyrex-S: why just the weak draining kiss for dark types. swap leaf storm with pollen puff or swap draining kiss with pollen puff.
Necrozma-Dusk Mane: This is fine
Palkia: Thunder>Thunderbolt with no rain or accuracy boosts? swap thunder for thunderbolt or keep thunder and use wide lens over life orb

Why Wide Lens? Palkia is more importantly to deal with Kyogre against which Thunder has always 100% accuracy because of Rain. Breaking Swipe hits both enemies.
I was meaning wide lens for accuracy because it's not good to rely on your opponent for rain or stuff like that
