i’m one to keep my word, so lets start our next round!
So, as JT Yao said, NDM and Kyogre win the checks and counters respectively.
Congrats to iceblazer and airfare.
:ss/necrozma dusk mane: :bw/kyogre:
As for the unconventional picks, since there is a tie between Slowbro and Avalugg, i’m going to cast my vote as a tiebreaker.

And my vote is...Avalugg! The ice table is cool, so congrats to Lasen for winning.
:ss/avalugg:
You all get one point! Now for our next victim!

Posiedon’s Pokemon Passion, Moby Dick’s sidekick, and the Top Tier Titan for 3 generations straight...give it up for KYOGRE!!!

Sporting a fabulous matchup vs teams with its tried and true Scarf Water Spouts, the ballena behemoth has been trucking through and through with this set! Can you make the rain rain go away or will your cries be drowned out? Let’s find out!

oh, and by a recommendation, Eternatus won’t be allowed in this round due to its omnipresence flesh out the counterplay a little more.
 
Reserving Eleki
The Ultimate Kyogre Check. (Seriously, outspeeds by 40 points and OHKO's)

And it can't miss because of the rain set up by Kyogre itself! Kinda poetic...
And the other three moves are just for fun.

Ferrothorn @ Leftovers
Ability: Iron Barbs
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SpD
Careful Nature
- Leech Seed
- Spikes
- Knock Off
- Power Whip

Sp. Def Ferrothorn is a full on counter to Choice Scarf Kyogre and also deals pretty well with the other sets. Leech Seed keeps it healthy alongside Leftovers for multiple switch-ins and weakens Water Spout, Kyogre's most powerful move both against Ferrothorn and in general. Also key to it, Spikes not only is a great move to use regardless of the opponent choice of switch-in, it also chips down Kyogre so it can never just switch out for free like some other answers. If you want to speed stuff up or Ferrothorn got really weakened, Power Whip also is an option that deal very good damage to it, although not necessarily the main move to click when you Kyogre in front of you.

252 SpA Kyogre Water Spout (150 BP) vs. 252 HP / 252+ SpD Ferrothorn in Rain: 133-157 (37.7 - 44.6%) -- guaranteed 3HKO after Leftovers recovery (not even a real 3HKO due to Leech Seed recovery and weaker Water Spout too)
252 SpA Kyogre Origin Pulse vs. 252 HP / 252+ SpD Ferrothorn in Rain: 97-115 (27.5 - 32.6%) -- 72.8% chance to 4HKO after Leftovers recovery (Ice Beam is even weaker)
0 Atk Ferrothorn Power Whip vs. 0 HP / 4 Def Kyogre: 270-318 (79.1 - 93.2%) -- guaranteed 2HKO

you can also use leftovers and/or rest for recovery but this switches in enough times to be a counter.

Rillaboom is a Check to Kyogre Choice scarf. Thanks to the priority of Grassy Glide, Rillaboom can outspeed and KO kyogre without problem but he needs a free switch to check it,

252+ Atk Choice Band Rillaboom Grassy Glide vs. 0 HP / 4 Def Kyogre in Grassy Terrain: 518-612 (151.9 - 179.4%) -- guaranteed OHKO

If you want to be creative, Assualt Vest Rillaboom can switch into any of the Kyogre moves and KO them in return.

252 SpA Kyogre Ice Beam vs. 0 HP / 0 SpD Assault Vest Rillaboom: 196-232 (57.4 - 68%) -- guaranteed 2HKO after Grassy Terrain recovery

252+ Atk Rillaboom Grassy Glide vs. 0 HP / 4 Def Kyogre in Grassy Terrain: 344-408 (100.8 - 119.6%) -- guaranteed OHKO

Standar set

Lanturn @ Leftovers
Ability: Water Absorb
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SpD
Calm Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Heal Bell/Thunder Wave/Toxic
- Volt Switch
- Scald
- Protect/Rest

Lanturn the goat is indefinitely superior to Kyogre and is a counter to scarf Kyogre. Against Lantgoat, Kyogre is about just as useless as Ledian.

Kyogre Water Spout vs. Water Absorb Lanturn: 0-0 (0 - 0%) -- possibly the worst move ever
252 SpA Kyogre Ice Beam vs. 252 HP / 252+ SpD Lanturn: 47-55 (10.3 - 12.1%) -- possible 9HKO
252 SpA Kyogre Thunder vs. 252 HP / 252+ SpD Lanturn: 114-135 (25.1 - 29.7%) -- 0% chance to 4HKO after Leftovers recovery

Lantgoat is actually selfless unlike greedy 4Atk Kyogre and provides team utility through pivoting, cleric, or status. Lantgoat isn’t stopped by chip through leftovers and protect or rest.

Tl;dr idk why Lant unranked on VR Kyogre needs to drop to unviable and LantGoat to S+

Mah nam ehh Jeff (Blissey) @ Utility Umbrella
Ability: Natural Cure
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Def / 252 SpD
Calm Nature
- Soft-Boiled
- Seismic Toss
- Teleport
- Confide

Blissey is arguably the single best counter to Scarf Kyogre in the game. It takes next to no damage from Scarf Kyogre's Water Spout, thanks to Utility Umbrella. As a result, Blissey is only 4HKO'd, at best, from a full health STAB Water Spout. Meanwhile, Blissey can proceed to beat Kyogre via a combination of Confide and Seismic Toss. More Kyogre now carry Toxic, which makes Shedinja (the other best counter to Scarf Kyogre) a bit less viable. Alas, like this post and wish me luck on my upcoming exam my friends!
