    I know there is a general thread for replays on the OU section but I thought this would be easier for people to check decent battles without having to create a warstory maybe when there is no need to.

    Feel free to share any decent replay you have. This way more people can check better what does the Ubers ladder look like.

    PS I'll edit my post later with some replays of my own.

    Overview of the Battle: Above is the longest Generation V battle I've ever had, against my friend Sopan. It is a long stallwar involving Lugia, and this battle highlights the importance of never giving up in a Pokémon battle.

    Best game I've had in the ubers tier thus far against LC64. After a shaky beginning, there are quite a few turn of momentum flipping tension. http://pokemonshowdown.com/replay/ubers2434810

    Also perhaps the first post could be used as an index to record these matches. If that becomes the case, there should be some criteria for getting into the index.

    thank you guys for sharing! I was expecting more people to do so but maybe Aesoft being down (not unusual) is the reason. I really hope more players submit replays as is a fast way for other players to learn not only team building/synergy/strat but also in-battle decisions.

    Holla people, I've edited the OP with the replays. But I'd like people to add in their own comments with the replay. A format like the one below would help in easy categorization and help other people pick and choose the replays they want to see.

    Code:
    Replay Link:Your link goes here
    
    Overview of the Battle: a brief summary of the battle with your comments, not more than a few lines preferably, so that people can just see the replays they are interested in.

    Overview of the Battle: Sun VS Sun, though neither team really relied all that much on it. A very, very close battle that shows off just how useful Life Orb Sub-Roost Reshiram can be. Also contains some bad language (my opponent really didn't enjoy being on the receiving end of hax), though nothing that ruins that battle IMO.

    Only one problem furry-at the end there, if you'd just sacrificed arceus, then scarf genesect with flamethrower sweeps. Ferro isn't taking one, and 7% hp reshiram isn't taking a flamethrower in the sun, let alone a plus one flamethrower in the sun. If you just kept attacking, you would've won.

    This was a Physical Choice Scarf Genesect; I do not run Flamethrower on it. Not to mention, the miss on turn 19 completely saved him, and the paralysis on turn 22 fucked me up. It was clear he would Roost turn 23, so I decide to kill it anyway by first breaking its Substitute and then KO with Dragon Pulse or LO recoil. Then I could freely setup with Arceus and potentially sweep, or weaken Ferrothorn enough for a Genesect sweep, but of course non of that happened.

    Yeah, when I watched replay I completely wondered why didn't I just let Arceus die and let Genesect do the work. Definitely the better move.

    Here's a quite interesting match I had recently. At one point, I seem to have totally lost momentum, being down 6-3, but it's an example of how Dakrai can beat entire teams single-handedly if given some hazard support.

    http://pokemonshowdown.com/replay/ubers2677491

    Overview of the Battle: A battle between our own Hugendugen and Steven Snype. Both players, with their vast knowledge of the metagame, try to predict just about every other move from their opponent with interesting results. Features a unique arceus moveset, the awesomeness of genesect and the effectiveness of taunt tran. Also take not of how well team synergy allows the two players to constantly switch around with the only risk lying in being outpredicted.

    Faint vs me. This battle features the rare MixZekrom. Faint uses an unorthodox Grass Arceus to catch his opponents by surprise. There was a bit of hax early on in the match which might have been the reason for his loss.
    EDIT: Forget what I said about hax. Faint told me after the match that his Arceus Grass didnt have recover(to compensate for the moveslot).

    Other than the match having a weird glitch on the pokemon, occasionally shifting to both rows of pokemon being the same, this match wasn't that great, but it feels like faint made a LOT of weird plays. For example, he switched from excadrill to tyranitar on Giratina-O. What did he think it was going to do? Aura sphere? Will-o-Wisp? Of course, it dragon tailed, which meant it was a bad switch, but the best-case scenario is that he was trying to take a burn to set SR, which is still not great. Then he switched away from skarmory on an excadrill. Set some hazards! Not to mention whirlwinding a kyogre switch-in with no hazards. Why not just lay down a layer and go from there? That, especially for a stall-oriented team, made no sense.

    I've been testing a quite interesting hail team on PS lately, mainly because I wanted to try out Blizzard Kyu-W. In the process, I also discovered a super gimmicky but surprisingly effective anti-lead : Sturdy Magnezone. Watch this video for the team in action, which features SubSeed Abomasnow, WishPass Jirachi, Scarf Terrakion, Specs Kyurem, Xatu and a troll Magnezone :p

    There was some parahax here and there, but that's what you expect from Jirachi.
