[SET COMMENTS]
With its great bulk and access to both Trick Room and Stealth Rock, Uxie makes an ideal lead for Trick Room teams that can get both moves off, most of the time. Memento lets a teammate safely come in and take advantage of the remaining Trick Room turns. Knock Off gives Uxie an offensive move and breaks the Substitute of Rotom, which can be a huge threat to Trick Room teams. Magic Coat is an option to improve the matchup against Taunt and Encore users like Alolan Persian, Qwilfish, and Liepard, which can disrupt Uxie. Mental Herb is the preferred item, offering the same utility as Magic Coat without requiring using a move, while Red Card can force out attackers that would 2HKO Uxie like Silvally-Dark and Rotom.

This set only fits on full Trick room teams, so other Trick Room setters like Gourgeist-XL, Exeggutor, and Beheeyem make for great partners. Likewise, slow and powerful attackers such as Bouffalant, Pincurchin, and Rhydon make for great partners that take advantage of Trick Room, outspeeding the opposing team.

Other Options
=============

Uxie can run an Assault Vest set to handle special attackers such as Jynx, Exeggutor, and Manectric at the expense of switching into Sawk, Rhydon, and Gurdurr. Its lack of reliable recovery and bad matchup against common special attackers like Rotom and Skuntank mean it struggles to fit into most teams. Leftovers is an alternative to Colbur Berry on Uxie's defensive set, improving its longevity. However, this makes Uxie vulnerable to Knock Off. Thunder Wave is a viable alternative to Knock Off on defensive Uxie that debilitates faster attackers such as Thievul and Silvally formes, letting Uxie's teammates take them on more easily. Defensive Uxie can also run Choice Scarf with Trick and 64 Speed EVs, letting it outspeed up to Alolan Persian and debilitate a potential entry hazard remover like Articuno or Coalossal. However, Uxie can get a harmful item like Skuntank's Black Sludge or Rotom's Choice Specs, or even become setup fodder for Silvally formes due to their Trick immunity. Memento is an alternative for the defensive pivot set, blocking Defog and bringing in a teammate more safely than U-turn, but Uxie often can't fit it. Encore can be used to punish Pokemon that otherwise freely set up on Uxie like Galarian Rapidash and Ninetales.

Checks and Counters
===================

**Ghost-types**: Uxie is threatened by attackers such as Rotom and Gourgeist-S. However, most of them take great damage from Knock Off and STAB moves, meaning Uxie can pressure them on the switch.

**Dark-types**: Dark-types such as Thievul, Silvally-Dark, and Skuntank threaten Uxie with their super effective STAB moves, block Future Sight, and can sponge boosted Draining Kiss. However, several of them, including Liepard and Morpeko, take heavy damage from U-turn, and Colbur Berry Uxie can afford to take a hit.

**Bulky Setup Sweepers**: Defensive sweepers such as Alcremie and Spiritomb easily set up on the weak Uxie. Most of them can also beat Uxie in a setup war.

**Wallbreakers and Stallbreakers**: Wallbreakers such as Thwackey and Froslass can use Uxie's passivity to threaten its whole team with their powerful moves. However, they dislike losing their items to Knock Off. Faster Taunt users such as Alolan Persian can shut down Uxie's utility and take advantage of it with Toxic.

**Steel-types**: Setup Uxie has a very hard time breaking through Steel-types such as Klinklang due to its low damage output. They can easily break Uxie's Substitute and remove Uxie before it is boosted enough.

**Haze Articuno and Unaware Pyukumuku**: Haze Articuno and Unaware Pyukumuku can wall most setup Uxie. However, Pyukumuku has to be wary of Stored Power's increased Base Power.

Knock Off gives Uxie an offensive move and lets it break Rotom's Substitute which can be a huge threat to Trick Room teams. Magic Coat is an option that lets bounce back worded weirdly, I think you had two sentences in mind and mixed them Taunt and Encore from the likes of Alolan Persian, Qwilfish, and Liepard that could disrupt Uxie. Mental Herb is the prefered item offering the same utility as Magic Coat without requiring using a move, while Red Card can force out attackers that would 2HKO Uxie like Silvally-Dark and Rotom.

Uxie can run an Assault Vest set to handle special attackers such as Jynx, Exeggutor, and Manectric at the expense of switching into Sawk, Rhydon, and Gurdurr. Why is this only OO tho, maybe mention some drawbacks like the general lack of recovery and susceptibility to Knock Leftovers is an alternative to Colbur Berry on Uxie's defensive set, providing reliable recovery and improving its longevity. However, this makes Uxie vulnerable to Knock Off. Thunder Wave is a viable alternative to Knock Off that cripples faster attackers such as Thievul and Silvally formes, letting Uxie's teammates take them on more easily. Defensive Uxie can also run Choice Scarf with Trick and 64 Speed EVs, letting it outspeed up to Alolan Persian and cripple a potential entry hazard remover like Articuno or Coalossal. However, Uxie can get a crippling item like Skuntank's Black Sludge or Rotom's Choice Specs, or even become setup fodder for Silvally formes due to their Trick immunity.

**Bulky Setup Sweepers**: Defensive sweepers such as Alcremie and Spiritomb easily set up on the weak Uxie. Most of them can also beat Uxie in a setup war. ig you could mention trick from uxie here but its not needed

**Wallbreakers and Stallbreakers**: Wallbreakers such as Thwackey and Basculin banned can use Uxie's passivity to threaten its whole team with their powerful moves. However, they dislike losing Choice Band or Choice Specs to Knock Off. Faster Taunt users such as Alolan Persian can shut down Uxie's utility and take advantage of it with Toxic.

much of the other options and c/c content only made sense when uxie had a defensive non-lead set: eg things like "Leftovers is an alternative to Colbur Berry on Uxie's defensive set" and "However, Pyukumuku has to be wary of Stored Power's increased Base Power." dont make sense when colbur berry and stored power don't appear anywhere. the oo/cc should be revamped in light of this before gp
The other sets are on the dex with a full analysis. The original analysis didn't feature the TR set and I copy/pasted the old cc and oo with some minor adjustments to make it easier to upload on the dex. This is also why the credits feature 3 QC members and 1 other GP member.
