Welcome to Ubers! This subforum will primarily be used for Gen 7 Ubers metagame discussion. You are expected to read these rules before posting.


All main forum rules still apply here. Be sure to read those, as well as the rules in this thread, before posting in the subforum.

Any questions that can be answered in a single post should go in Simple Questions, Simple Answers.
  1. Anything you post should be relevant to the Ubers metagames. Do not discuss whether Uber Pokemon should be allowed in other tiers. Ubers viability has no relevance on OU tiering, so even if something is bad here, it does not mean that it should automatically be tested in OU.
  2. Bringing the topic of banning a Pokemon / Item / Move from Ubers will result in an infraction. Do not assume walking the line with subtle or obvious hints will avoid this infraction.
  3. All threads must be approved by a moderator before being posted. Threads not approved by a moderator will be locked and deleted.
  4. Contentless or "one-liner" posts will be deleted.
Metagame Restrictions

Battle Clauses:
  • All Smogon-wide clauses as listed here.
  • Mega Rayquaza is not permitted to Mega Evolve.
  • Sleep Clause Addendum: A Pokemon cannot use a move that can inflict sleep status on the opponent if it has the ability Shadow Tag.
Ubers Leadership

Don't forget that the rules are subject to moderator discretion. If you have questions about the rules or their interpretation, then feel free to contact an Ubers moderator via PM. The following is a list of the current Ubers staff members:

On Mega Rayquaza

SM has introduced exactly zero things that would potentially help keep Mega Rayquaza in check, so we're not going to waste our time letting it out of the cage. I don't imagine anyone will lose sleep over this.

@Nayrz: clicking x is not a check
