  • Ice types.Since my team has three Dragon types and a Flying types,Ice
    is a big threat for me.Trick room Calyrex-Ice mainly

  • Fairy types again the same is with Fairy and Geomancy Xerneas sweeps
    the whole team.

  • Ground types I have a Poison and Steel type which are weak to
    Groudons Precipice Blades.Zekrom isnt the case because Magnet Rise
    saveit but still Thousand Arrows is a concern.

is it just me or does everybody want to play stall with sweepers nowadays? btw Magnet Rise is ...... bad.
Since Zacian is gone, there’s no need for NDM to be physically defensive. Specially Defensive would be better to beat Xerneas.

Also @GeniusGatik942 I’m not sure what you mean with “everybody want to play stall with sweepers”, but Necrozma-Dusk and Yveltal (whom I assume you are referring to) both often run defensive sets to beat Calyrex-Shadow and Xerneas, and run them equal to or more often then attacking sets. Also, magnet rise was a strategy used by Fc in AGPL that got him an easy win. It sits on Necrozma-Dusk and Groudon. However, it might not be as good in Ubers, so I can’t say with confidence that it’s usable.
Magnet Rise is good on Zekrom
@PrimordialSea I've accepted the fact the people want to run defensive Yveltal (Eventhough its useless). NDM can be run defensive. What I mean here is Zygarde's EVs and Moveset, and fact that he is running Shadow Ball Blissey.
How can Non-Psyshock Xern sweep your team when you have Blissey? If that is the problem, as suggested before, use Specially Defensive Necro set, not Defensive.

Necrozma-Dusk-Mane @ Leftovers  
Ability: Prism Armor  
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SpD  
Careful Nature  

(Same moveset.)

Scale Shot is just bad for Zygarde. You don't need speed for this heavily defensive 'mon. Try toxic to wear down other walls or Haze to stop set up sweepers.

I think Sludge Wave is better than Sludge Bomb for an offensive Eternatus, but the latter can also be used for higher secondary effect. Shadow Ball Blissey is surprising enough for Caly Shadow in case Yvel fails. But... I think it isn't the best move, cause Caly often run Psyshock rather than Psychic.
Specially defensive Yveltal is amazing. I don't think you have played ubers before, don't knock it before you try it, it counters Calyrex-Shadow, Defogs, has great support moves, and more I've probably forgot about
huh? that Zygarde set doesn’t seem to out of the usual, outside of Scale Shot. It’s a very bulky coil user quite often, although it will occasionally run a DDance set. Also, what’s with the Yveltal thing? Defensive Yveltal is a spectacular Pokémon that has usage through the roof for it’s unique ability to consistently counter Calyrex-Shadow, provide Knock Off support if it uses it, has reliable recovery, is a very potent defogger that can beat the most common rocker in NDM, it can run foul play effectively, and it can pivot with U-Turn. It’s a spectacular Pokémon that is used on almost every non-hyper offense team.

Shadow ball Blissey is one of many options on Smogon-I personally am not a big fan but it can hit Calyrex-S for about 50%.

For a new player this set is quite Impressive as there is only a small amount of problem.

Yveltal : Run Knock Off over Foul Play for Calyrex-Shadow.
Maybe run Dual Wing Beat over U turn.

Eternatus - Give Eternatus Black Sludge. I understand this a sweeper set but still it is great to heal every turn.
Maybe run Sludge Wave over Sludge Bomb.

Necrozma Dusk Mane : This is fine.

Having 3 dragons isn't the best as Geomancy Xerneas is always around in Ubers. So I suggest to swap Zygarde for Mamoswime to kill the 3 Genies.

Mamoswime (Iapapa Berry/Choice Band)
Evs : 252 Atk 128 HP 128 Spe
Nature : Jolly
Ability : Thick Fat
- Ice Shard (Priority)
- Icicle Crash (Stab)
- Earthquake (Stab)
- Rock Slide (Coverage)

Zekrom : I say Life Orb is better but Leftovers is fine.
I don't think Magnet Rise is great as Roost but okay.
Maybe run Fusion Bolt instead of Bolt Strike.

Blissey : It's great. Maybe run leftovers over Utility Parasol.
And you know that Chansey with eviolite is tankier, right?

Anyway that's a great set for a new player.
Please comment if I forgot something

Woah Woah Woah! Mamoswine!?
You messed this team rather than fixing it. Offensive Eternatus runs Life Orb / Power Herb, not Black Sludge as it needs power, not longevity. Even though there's Geomancy Xerneas, Dusk Mane Necro and Blissey are its best counters; as well as Eternatus doesn't let it set-up by OHKOing by Sludge Bomb before.

No one runs Tornadus/Thundurus in Ubers, and in case of Landorus-T even Zygarde just hard walls it. Magnet Rise is a perfectly fine choice, as it lets it set on Earthquake Dusk Mane, Groudon, etc. Fusion Bolt isn't better than Bolt Strike, as power is more important here than accuracy.

Did you even know what Utility Umbrella does before telling to change it? It makes it ignore Kyogre's rain based effects, which means Choice Specs Spout doesn't 2HKO. And, Blissey is better than Eviolite Chansey because it can hold a item; this case Utility Umbrella to not lose to Specs Kyogre. Please learn a bit more about Ubers before suggesting changes.
Mamoswine in Ubers? Mamoswine? What has the world come to? I fainted after seeing it. Please actually play Ubers before rating teams.
You have got to be kidding me
