    If you're thinking of making a topic that can be answered with one post, please post it here instead. New threads should be for discussion!

    When posting in this thread, follow the following guidelines:


    1. Your answers should contain at least a brief explanation, even if it was the simplest of questions.
    2. While answering Yes/No question, please quote the question you're referring to. It gets confusing otherwise.
    3. At least do a simple Google search before asking the question here.
    4. This is already in the Smogon and Dragonspiral Tower forum rules, but I will reiterate again do not discuss ROMs or other illegal things.
    5. Do not ask for Action Replay or other external device codes. Use Google for that.

    I don't play Ubers much, so I wouldn't know this, but: Can you use both Giratina and Giratina-O on the same team, or does it violate the species clause since they have the same Pokédex number?

    Tried it on PO, it changed Giratina-A to a Missingno. so no, you cannot have both on the same team.

    Same reason why you can't run 6 Arceus of different types: violation of Species Clause.

    It's more comparable to Rotom + Rotom-A, as they have different stats and serve different roles. 6 Arceus aren't too different individually - the only viable sets are, IIRC, Extremekill/CM/tank sets depending on the type.

    Who would you guys say are the top 5 or so threats in the uber meta game that every team should have a counter to?

    Extremekiller Arceus
    Scarf Kyogre
    CM Arceus
    RP Groudon
    whatever Mewtwo

    Is that Scarf Kygore supposed to be a Specs Kygore? Or is scarf actually more deadly?

    Also what freaking counters Mewtwo? >.>

    Its not a question of what is more deadly as in what way they're deadly. ScarfOgre is a potent cleaner and revenge killer whereas SpecsOgre is a nuke.

    Also, nothing really counters Mewtwo. Only real way to stop it is to revenge kill it.

    Scarf Kyogre outspeeds a lot of things while still hitting hard with Water Spout. Specs Kyogre gets easily revenged by Scarf Zekrom...

    As for Mewtwo, the main point is to just hit it with powerful Outrages.

    Pretty much every Arceus type can run a good CM set. Steel and Ghost are particularly good.

    If you're looking for physical Arceus, SD Dragon, Ghost, and Ground are your best bets.

    It's usually seen as a supporter, but its also a good user of Calm Mind since it can't be Poisoned.

    You can get some more ideas here: http://www.smogon.com/forums/showthread.php?t=3448377

    Depends on your team, really. Seeing as most likely you are running Groudon, you SHOULD have a way of dealing with Dialga. In that case, drop Aura Sphere, since FB is still hitting Ferro harder in the rain.

    Latias is actually extremely useful in Ubers as a Kyogre counter, but only when it has Soul Dew as a held item. At the moment, Soul Dew is unreleased since it doesn't exist in Black/White version's coding, so Latias isn't as useful as it was in Gen IV.

    Actually, correction: Soul Dew is programmed into the game, but there is currently no legal method of obtaining it. Hence, it's put into the DW tier.
