As we all know, Ubers is full of the most powerful Pokemon in the game. This doesn't give much room for lower tier Pokemon to shine, as they are usually too weak to handle stuff like Groudon. However, there are a few Pokemon that have niches in the Ubers metagame and are in lower tiers, such as Terrakion from OU or even Kabutops from all the way down in RU. Most new players normally wouldn't think about using these Pokemon in such a high-powered tier, so this thread will be used to explore and discuss the roles of Pokemon in the Ubers metagame who are not actually Uber themselves! Post any non-uber that you think is usable in the Ubers metagame, so we can discuss the sets that they should be using and other traits about that Pokemon.
I'll start it off I guess:
Terrakion is a great Pokemon in OU, but I also feel that it does well in Ubers. Its Rock typing gives it some good resists, such as a resistance to ExtremeSpeed from ExtremeKiller Arceus and Sacred Fire from Ho-Oh. With a Choice Scarf, Terrakion can outspeed and deal massive damage to these threats with one of its STAB moves; Close Combat does major damage to Arceus and Stone Edge OHKOes Ho-Oh. Close Combat also hits a lot of other Pokemon in the metagame for super effective damage, such as Arceus Steel and Rock, Darkrai, and Dialga. This makes Terrakion a pretty good revenge killer in my opinion, and it can do a good amount of damage to certain teams. I found that Terrakion has some trouble with Groudon and Giratina-O, but neither have reliable recovery, so the rest of Terrakion's team can wear them down. If your team doesn't have a solid counter to Terrakion, such as a bulky Ghost-type, Terrakion will make for a great revenge killer. I haven't really used many of the other sets, since I'm fairly new to Ubers, so maybe someone else can discuss that if they know another cool set :3.
Also, please discuss some other Pokemon while you're at it! Good posts in this thread can help you earn the "Best Forum Poster" Award!
