All submissions seem good so I will just pick the ones I would most likely use on a team
Check: BasedWhat? :yveltal: Yveltal is so good and gets hella mileage compressing a lot of threats imo, most realistic for me to add on my team.

Counter: Fc :lunala: Seems most plausible and safest counter out of the bunch with Shadow Shield being such a good ability and having the option to wow or 2hko with ice beam.

UP: Lasen :solrock: I have a ADV bias but imma have to go with solrock>vibrava due to the fact I loved meteor falls as a kid and my favorite word is mitt solskinn so its destiny.

Xerneas @ Power Herb
Ability: Fairy Aura
EVs: 248 HP / 168 Def / 40 SpA / 52 Spe
Modest Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Geomancy
- Moonblast
- Rest
- Sleep Talk

Overall:
Xerneas is a check to LO Yveltal.
Thanks to its Fairy type, Xerneas can switch on Yveltal's Dark STABs easily. Therefore, this set aims to switch on Yveltal, and then threatens it and opponent's team by either going for Geomancy or Moonblast (this depends on if you expect Yveltal to stay or switch).
The investments in Speed allow Xerneas at +2 to outspeed base 100 Choice Scarf. The investments in Special Attack allow Xerneas to OHKO Yveltal with Moonblast. The rest is put in HP and Defense to better hold hit from Yveltal, while allowing Xerneas to be used as a check to Zygarde too.

Moves:
The moves are pretty classic: Geomancy to set-up, Moonblast as main STAB, Rest and Sleep Talk to give Xerneas recovery.
252 SpA Life Orb Yveltal Oblivion Wing vs. 248 HP / 0 SpD Xerneas: 175-207 (38.4 - 45.4%) -- guaranteed 3HKO
252 SpA Life Orb Dark Aura Yveltal Dark Pulse vs. 248 HP / 0 SpD Xerneas: 116-136 (25.4 - 29.8%) -- guaranteed 4HKO
0- Atk Life Orb Dark Aura Yveltal Sucker Punch vs. 248 HP / 168 Def Xerneas: 66-78 (14.5 - 17.1%) -- possible 6HKO

40+ SpA Fairy Aura Xerneas Moonblast vs. 0 HP / 0 SpD Yveltal: 396-468 (100.7 - 119%) -- guaranteed OHKO

Tyranitar @ Heavy-Duty Boots
Ability: Sand Stream
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Atk / 252 SpD
Careful Nature
- Stealth Rock
- Rock Blast
- Foul Play
- Rest

Tyranitar is able to stomach both of Yveltal's STABs and OHKO it with Rock Blast. It's also able to recover with Rest which also checks Calyrex Shadow and sets Stealth Rocks to pressure it throughout the match.

Magearna as a hard counter



Magearna @ Leftovers
Ability: Soul-Heart
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SpD
Sassy Nature
IVs: 0 Atk / 0 Spe
- Volt Switch
- Fleur Cannon
- Power Swap
- Pain Split

Thanks to its dual Steel and Fairy typing, Magearna sports resistances to both of Yveltal's STAB moves. Maximum HP and SpD investment allow Magearna to tank up to 6 hits from Yveltal, as seen from the Calcs below. It can come in on Yveltal's attacks at any given time, and either Fleur Cannon to KO Yveltal or Pain Split to restore its own health. Power Swap is an interesting option to use, but one that is somewhat necessary, since Heart Swap was removed. Essentially, Power Swap trades Attack and Special Attack stat changes with the opposing mon. So this Magearna variant can use Fleur Cannon without negative drawbacks up to twice. And furthermore, Magearna serves as a solid pivot and excellent Geomancy Xerneas check as well.

252 SpA Life Orb Dark Aura Yveltal Dark Pulse vs. 252 HP / 252+ SpD Magearna: 74-88 (20.3 - 24.1%) -- possible 6HKO after Leftovers recovery
252 SpA Life Orb Yveltal Oblivion Wing vs. 252 HP / 252+ SpD Magearna: 56-66 (15.3 - 18.1%) -- possible 8HKO after Leftovers recovery
4 Atk Life Orb Dark Aura Yveltal Sucker Punch vs. 252 HP / 4 Def Magearna: 73-86 (20 - 23.6%) -- possible 6HKO after Leftovers recovery

Yeah, real nice Yveltal...

0 SpA Magearna Fleur Cannon vs. 0 HP / 0 SpD Yveltal: 356-422 (90.5 - 107.3%) -- 43.8% chance to OHKO

Bop :psysly:

Overall, Magaerna is quite an interesting pick, and can pair quite nicely with Calyrex-S, as it can naturally pivot into it and threaten the opposition in a pinch. The loss of Bulky Ground Types, leaves only Zygarde (who fears a STAB Boosted Fleur Cannon) and Groudon. Groudon can easily be chipped throughout the match, thus increasing Magearna's viability even more. Indeed, a truly terrific pick if you're looking to decimate Yveltal so Calyrex Rides Ubers and Stunts On The Hoes! :blobtriumph:

:ss/eternatus:
Eternatus @ Heavy-Duty Boots
Ability: Pressure
EVs: 240 HP / 252 SpD / 16 Spe
Timid Nature
- Dynamax Cannon
- Recover
- Mystical Fire
- Toxic

Eternatus is a counter to specially offensive Yveltal. It naturally outspeeds and always lives 2 hits while threatening with both Mystical Fire and Toxic to weaken it, with Dynamax Cannon for bigger damage. I prefer Heavy-Duty Boots for this job specifically, since this Yveltal will most often find itself on Hyper Offense teams with webs, meaning it could fast Taunt and shut down this set semi reliably. I think with how commonplace and splashable defensive Eternatus is, it's the most consistent and best counter to offensive Yveltal due to its great role compression and moveset that lets it beat this and many other things.
:yveltal:
252 SpA Life Orb Dark Aura Yveltal Dark Pulse vs. 240 HP / 252 SpD Eternatus: 187-220 (38.8 - 45.7%) -- guaranteed 3HKO
252 SpA Life Orb Yveltal Oblivion Wing vs. 240 HP / 252 SpD Eternatus: 140-165 (29.1 - 34.3%) -- 4% chance to 3HKO (26.7 - 31.5% recovered)

:eternatus:
0 SpA Eternatus Dynamax Cannon vs. 0 HP / 0 SpD Yveltal: 153-180 (38.9 - 45.8%) -- guaranteed 3HKO

Zacian @ Life Orb
Ability: Intrepid Sword
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Swords Dance
- Play Rough
- Crunch
- Wild Charge

Zacian-H is a surprising counter to LO Yveltal, since it always outspeeds, lives one random hit, and always OHKOs with Play Rough (or Wild Charge if you don't feel like missing).

252 SpA Life Orb Yveltal Oblivion Wing vs. 0 HP / 4 SpD Zacian: 152-179 (46.7 - 55%) -- 66.8% chance to 2HKO
+1 252 Atk Life Orb Zacian Wild Charge vs. 0 HP / 4 Def Yveltal: 398-471 (101.2 - 119.8%) (30.2 - 30.2% recoil damage) -- guaranteed OHKO
Do I need to calc Play Rough?

Submitting Darm-G as a check.
:ss/darmanitan-galar:
Darmanitan-Galar @ Choice Scarf
Ability: Gorilla Tactics
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Icicle Crash
- Flare Blitz
- Earthquake
- U-turn

While Darmanitan absolutely cannot switch into Yveltal, Darm is able to cleanly OHKO it with Icicle Crash, and can even come into a predicted Sucker Punch if you’re brave enough. Also, Sucker Punch just misses the OHKO, provided rocks aren’t up.

Calcs:

0- Atk Life Orb Dark Aura Yveltal Sucker Punch vs. 0 HP / 0 Def Darmanitan-Galar: 239-282 (68 - 80.3%) -- guaranteed 2HKO

252 Atk Gorilla Tactics Darmanitan-Galar Icicle Crash vs. 0 HP / 4 Def Yveltal: 458-540 (116.5 - 137.4%) -- guaranteed OHKO

Grimmsnarl @ Light Clay
Ability: Prankster
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SpD
Impish Nature
- Play Rough / Spirit Break
- Light Screen
- Reflect
- Taunt

Grimmsnarl is a check to Yveltal. It can tank an attack and set up Prankster Light Screen to reduce Yveltal's damage output, then hit back with Play Rough or keep screens up against Defoggers with Taunt.

252 SpA Life Orb Yveltal Oblivion Wing vs. 252 HP / 4 SpD Grimmsnarl: 216-255 (54.8 - 64.7%) -- guaranteed 2HKO
252 SpA Life Orb Dark Aura Yveltal Dark Pulse vs. 252 HP / 4 SpD Grimmsnarl: 71-83 (18 - 21%) -- possible 5HKO

0 Atk Grimmsnarl Play Rough vs. 0 HP / 4 Def Yveltal: 236-278 (60 - 70.7%) -- guaranteed 2HKO
0 Atk Grimmsnarl Spirit Break vs. 0 HP / 4 Def Yveltal: 198-234 (50.3 - 59.5%) -- guaranteed 2HKO

Dedunked upon
 
:ss/blissey:
The amazing pink sponge, Blissey is a Counter to LO yveltal as Yveltal cant really KO this thing even with chip damage.

252 SpA Life Orb Dark Aura Yveltal Dark Pulse vs. 252 HP / 252+ SpD Blissey: 133-157 (18.6 - 21.9%) -- possible 5HKO

Blissey can come into any atack from Yveltal and provides valuable momentum to the team thanks to Teleport. Blissey really have an outstanding suport move and basically can run what ever you need or want, Also she can check any special atacker in the tier no call it Calyrex SR.

:Blissey: Set:
Blissey (F) @ Utility Umbrella
Ability: Natural Cure
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SpD
Sassy Nature
- Seismic Toss
- Teleport / Confide
- Soft-Boiled
- Toxic / Aromatherapy / Stealth Rock / Ice beam / Heal Bell / Thunder Wave / Wish

It would appear all the conventional checks / counters are already taken, So I will submit something unconventional.


Sylveon @ Leftovers
Ability: Pixilate
EVs: 252 HP / 4 SpA / 252 SpD
Calm Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Hyper Voice
- Wish
- Protect
- Calm Mind / Heal Bell

A Generic Specially defensive Sylveon, unlike Mons Like Clefable (which was an option I was looking at) Syvleon is much more specially bulky and has a more damaging move to actually deal with Taunt LO Yveltal better than Clefable does, under some circumstances Taunt LO Yveltal could possibily shutdown Clefable.

Sylveon basically shrugs off any hit LO Yveltal dishes out: 252 SpA Life Orb Yveltal Oblivion Wing vs. 252 HP / 252+ SpD Sylveon: 103-122 (26.1 - 30.9%) -- 7.8% chance to 4HKO after Leftovers recovery, and threatens it back with Hyper Voice out damaging Oblivion Wing healing with ease: 4 SpA Pixilate Sylveon Hyper Voice vs. 0 HP / 0 SpD Yveltal: 258-306 (65.6 - 77.8%) -- guaranteed 2HKO, and maximises the edge that Syvleon will be able to get off Wishes.

Calm Mind strengthens its already capable defensive capabilities against Yveltal and allows Hyper Voice to OHKO a Full HP Yveltal and increases the offensive potential of Sylveon and can act as a winning condition for the team, while Heal Bell allows it to perform the role of Cleric.
