[Overview]

Necrozma-DW has nothing going for it when compared to other Ghost-types in Ubers. It lacks Lunala's Shadow Shield and good Speed, Calyrex-S's wallbreaking power, and Giratina-O's excellent typing. While its Special Attack is nothing to scoff at, the prevalence of Yveltal and fast revenge killers limits Necrozma-DW's effectiveness. Moreover, due to Species Clause, a team cannot have both Necrozma-DM and Necrozma-DW, which gives it a massive opportunity cost. As such, Necrozma-DW is almost entirely unviable.

Necrozma-DW differentiates itself from other Ghost-types through Trick Room. Moongeist Beam hits common foes like Kyogre, Groudon, and Xerneas for at least neutral damage. Heat Wave allows Necrozma-DW to hit Ferrothorn and Zarude for super effective damage, limiting their opportunities to switch in. Photon Geyser can be run over it to OHKO Eternatus after a boost. Meteor Beam allows Necrozma-DW to catch Yveltal and Ho-Oh off guard while simultaneously boosting its Special Attack, but using Meteor Beam prematurely leaves Necrozma-DW susceptible to both Pokemon.

Calyrex-I is a good partner that can also take advantage of Trick Room and set it up for itself and Necrozma-DW. Calyrex-S appreciates Necrozma-DW wearing Yveltal down with Meteor Beam and facilitating a potential sweep. Blissey and Ho-Oh are fantastic partners to effectively check Eternatus and Xerneas, which is necessary because Necrozma-DM cannot be a teammate. Eternatus and Yveltal are essentially mandatory, checking opposing Yveltal and Marshadow. Zamacenta-C compresses the roles of Yveltal check and bulky Steel-type.

Other Options

Brick Break helps Necrozma-DW break past Blissey and Tyranitar, but every other offensive option is much better. Foregoing Necrozma-DW and opting for Lunala and Necrozma-DM is guaranteed to net you better results.

Checks and Counters
====

**Dark-types**: Specially defensive Yveltal, Tyranitar, Zarude, and Urshifu-S can all take Necrozma-DW's attacks and force it out. Yveltal has to be wary of Meteor Beam, however.

**Blissey**: Blissey can freely switch in on Necrozma-DW and either paralyze it with Thunder Wave or set Stealth Rock without fear of any of Necrozma-DW's attacks, except the rare Brick Break.

**Ghost-types**: If Trick Room isn't up, Lunala, Calyrex-S, Marshadow, and Giratina-O can all KO Necrozma-DW. The latter two can even revenge kill it with Shadow Sneak in or out of Trick Room.

**Strong Wallbreakers**: Choice Specs Kyogre, Choice Band Dracovish, and Choice Band Rayquaza can OHKO Necrozma-DW with their STAB options after Stealth Rock.

This mon truly does suck ass. Mention Zarude in the dark types that beat it, and reorder the move description so that Photon Geyser and Heat Wave are next to each other. Also mention the downside of Power Herb Meteor Beam being a one-time thing, so if it is used prematurely it cant even imagine hurting Ho-oh or Yveltal.

QC 2/2.

Necrozma-DW has nothing going for it when compared to other Ghost-types in Ubers. It lacks Lunala's Shadow Shield and good Speed(capitalize), doesn't have Calyrex-S's wallbreaking power, nor and Giratina-O's excellent typing. While its Special Attack is nothing to scoff at, the prevalence of Yveltal and fast revenge killers limit Necrozma-DW's effectiveness. Moreover, due to Species Clause, a team cannot have both Necrozma-DM and Necrozma-DW, thus limiting the teammate options it even further. As such, Necrozma-DW is almost entirely unviable.

Necrozma-DW differentiates itself from other Ghost-types through Trick Room. Moongeist Beam(capitalize) hits common foes like Kyogre, Groudon, and Xerneas for at least neutral damage. Heat Wave allows it Necrozma-DW to hit Ferrothorn and Zarude for super-(RH)effective damage, limiting their switch-in opportunities to switch in. Photon Geyser can be run over it to OHKO Eternatus after a boost. Meteor Beam allows Necrozma-DW can to catch Yveltal and Ho-Oh off guard while simultaneously boosting Necrozma-DW's its Special Attack, but using it Meteor Beam prematurely leaves Necrozma-DW susceptible to both of them Pokemon.

Calyrex-I is a good partner that can also take advantage of Trick Room as well as set it up for itself and Necrozma-DW. Calyrex-S appreciates Necrozma-DW wearing Yveltal down through with Meteor Beam and facilitating a potential sweep. Blissey and Ho-Oh are fantastic partners,(RC) being able to to effectively check Eternatus and Xerneas, which is necessary seeing how you can't have because Necrozma-DM as cannot be a teammate. Eternatus and Yveltal are just short off essentially mandatory, both being able to checking opposing Yveltal and Marshadow. Zamacenta-C compresses the roles of Yveltal check and bulky Steel-type.

**Ghost-types**: If Trick Room isn't up, Lunala, Calyrex-S, Marshadow, and Giratina-O can all KO Necrozma-DW. The former two can even revenge kill it with Shadow Sneak in or out of Trick Room. (I imagine this makes sense?)
