Necrozma-Dusk Mane @ Solganium Z
Ability: Prism Armor
EVs: 36 HP / 252 Atk / 220 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Rock Polish
- Swords Dance
- Sunsteel Strike
- Earthquake

Fusing with the sun Pokemon Solgaleo clearly made Necrozma too hot for Ubers to handle, as this set is one of the most fearsome sweepers in the tier. Necrozma-DM's stellar bulk, defensive typing, and ability allow it to set up against a plethora of foes including Arceus-Fairy, Xerneas, Blissey, and Magearna. Necrozma-DM can contribute defensively to a team as well, being able to absorb Toxic and switch into defensive behemoths like Lugia and support Arceus. Necrozma-DM is most effective as a late-game cleaner after its checks have been even minimally chipped, but it can also function as a wallbreaker against defensive teams to bust holes. Be careful not to waste the Z-Move, though, as it may be essential to break past Pokemon like Zygarde-C. Stealth Rock setters like Primal Groudon and Deoxys-S are necessary to facilitate Necrozma-DM's sweep and to weaken Ho-Oh. Necrozma-DM also struggles to set up sometimes against more offensive teams, so Pokemon good against the archetype like Marshadow and Choice Scarf Xerneas pair well with it.

Needs more power for that. You can replace Ho-Oh with Zygarde actually.

Necrozma-DM also struggles to set up sometimes against more offensive teams, so Pokemon good against the archetype like Marshadow and Choice Scarf Yveltal pair well.
I'd rather suggest Choice Scarf Xerneas as Scarf Yveltal isn't that great compared to its other sets while Scarf Xern has been known to threaten.

QC 1/1
