    Ubers Deoxys

    [OVERVIEW] Deoxys has great offenses and a wide offensive movepool. Access to Spikes also sets it apart from most Pokemon in Ubers.

    Ubers Arceus-Flying

    [OVERVIEW] Arceus-Flying is the only Arceus forme that is immune to Ground-type moves, which gives it more opportunities to switch in than most other formes.

    SM Ubers Aberforth
