Ubers. Ubers NFE. One of the least used tiers. However, its not all about just power. You can even have an effective ubers team without any ubers at all. You just need to be able to counter them. This guide will show you, and teach you some leads, sweepers, and many other options to your team. Now, lets begin, with the:

Tatics
As all the tiers are.They all have diffrent tatics. Diffrent star pokemon, and of course diffrent sets. To start with, Ubers is more of a Bulky offence metagame. Since most ubers have more defencive stats than in OU NFE. Also, Machoke are very common, as they can take out most ubers easy due to there STAB Dynamic Punch being a very powerful move, and, being Super Effective on almost all Ubers. Anouther good strategy in Ubers is Taunt + Priorty. Pokemon like Sneasel can pull this off well. Taunting Munchlax, Wynaut, Clamperl and some forms of Dusclops, while Scyther, Pikachu and Vigoroth's Speed are cancelled out). This can give your team an easy advantege. Anouther thing is leads take a diffrent fourm is ubers. Most, are anti-leads. From Monferno to Metang, they all can counter each other. Unlike in OU NFE, where more leads set up SR, like Gligar, Graveler, Marshtomp, and Onix. While here, they center more around getting in front first. For many people that spam Ubers you must remember that they can always be countered. ScarfChoke takes a whole new meaning of uber. Also, other sets can be altered to adjust to this metagame. Where new sets roam galore. Lead Monferno takes a more offencive aproach, while Scarf Machoke rises in popularity. Scyther, one of the most threating late game sweepers is everywhere. This is why you need some checks to everything now. This is the dawn of a new metagame. Somthing that not many of you have played before. This will be your guide to making your team. Pokemon you will see, and use in ubers. Now, that I am done with this intro, we can get on the focus. The focus, of what you will see in ubers. Now lets begin.



Pokemon That Can Be Used In Ubers

There are many pokemon that are used in ubers, a wide majority of them are OU NFE. Meaning you will still have to counter the same things mainly- and then some:

Gabite:
Just like Garchomp in ubers, Gabite can be used in uber too. ScarfBite checks stuff like ScarfTon, other Dragons, and low at health Pokes. It also can take out Larion and Metang if at good HP. Metang however must be lacking Ice Punch and Shuca. It also can take care of MixNair due to it only hitting it with extreme speed. This pokemon can also KO Monferno late game. Only fearing Mach Punch. Which won't come near to a KO. Gabites real job is to pick off weakened things like Machoke, which are a huge threat to any uber team.

Metang:
Just like Metagross in OU Metang is very versitile and can be used in many ways. As a lead, Scarfer, band, or a late game sweeper. Metnag is a good check for Gabite locked into Outrage, or anything for that matter. Ice Punch OHKOS Gabite along with Dragonair who are threats in ubers. It also is a solid Sneasel counter, as long as its not a Band. However, most can be KO'd with BP after SR damenge and being worn down. LeadTang can set up SR and is on of the few counters to Lead ferno when carrying Occa Berry. It can counter a large amount of Ubers making Metang very useful.

Sneasel
Still useful in Ubers, Sneasel is the ultimate counter to ScarfBite or Dragonair that just KO'd you Dragon resist by some crit. Ice Shard KO's Both. Or, gabite for that matter. It also is a sound counter for Golbat later game along with Kadabra and scyther if its not low on HP. Its also a decent counter for a weakend LOBuzz that just KO'd half your team. Now, unlike OU, CBSneasel is more useful. As it outruns and KOs many NFEs. A banded Brick Brake can deal very heavy damenge to a weak Larion, or even a KO! Ice Punch can badly hurt Machoke, even when scarfed as it outruns. While a Metang switching into Faint Attack can get badly hurt. CB Sneasel can pick your whole team off if you don't have the force or resistences to beat it. Making Sneasel very threating.

Monferno
Its counterpart in Standered is much less effective than in NFE since there is no Latias or Salamence to stop it. LeadFerno is very threating. Fake Out + Fire Blast + Mach Punch can tear almost and lead apart. Only Occa Metang can counter it and Golbat if Hypnosis hits. Late game ferno is also dangerous. Mix-ferno is a very threating poke to face in ubers. Any Gabite or Dragonair thats not scarfed is going to be in trouble. As HP Ice OHKOS Gabite and does serious damenge to Dragonair. While Shelgon also takes a very very large amount. Fire Blast is its main attack, as it can KO a large amount of Pokemon with it. Metang gets OHKO'd easy. A common counter to Dragons. This is why Mix-ferno and Sneasel make a great pair. As they can work together. Sneasel can cover Gabite and Kadabra while Monferno can cover Metang and Larion is some cases. Although they can have a hrd time swithcing in.Prediction could help you here however, as hey can destroy a large amount of Pokemon in this Metagame together.

Dragonair
Just like in OU Dragonair remains a very threating face to see. Even though Sneasel says hi to it most of the time. And a more defencive Metang also says hiif it lacks Fire Blast, it can be something you don't wat to set up. However, all these problums are solved, solved with a new set. Mix-Nair. A very powerful uber. A decent Monferno counter along with Gabite, ES can end Monferno if at low HP. Although Close Combat and Hp Ice do a high number. Getting a powerful hit in can dampen its sweepering abilitys. LO boosts ES's power further. Making sure it will have a better KO chance. Metang also can't beat this set unless it invests more SP.DEF EVS. As Fire Blast can KO easy. Surf can also take out switching in Monferno or Magmar which can be big problums in ubers. Draco Metor is its last attack. KOing other Dragonair and Shelgon that are left to clean up.

Electabuzz
Just like in OU, LO special buzz is very dangerous with a wide movepool to abuse to the fullest. A good counter to Larion, Focus Blast gets rid of it quick. Thunderbolt takes care of any water type in its way. Psychic is thhere for Machoke, who, is very common in ubers. Even ScarfChoke gets beat. Being outsped and KO'd with Psychic. The last move is HP Grass, or Hp Ice. Grass can KO and Marshtomp that can try to end your sweep. Or, something like Rhydon for that matter. While you don't have to risk a miss from Focus Blast. WHile HP Ice, is still SE on Rhydon,(While not a KO) also, covers other Grass types, and Dragons of Uber tier like Shelgon and Dragonair. This makes Eletabuzz a very good team member. ScarfBite can give this set problums though. As it can KO with EQ and switch in on T-Bolt. Also being KO'd by Sneasel commonly.

Magmar
There are many sets for Magmar. LO, Specs, Scarf, all are notable in the uber tier. Specs Fire Blast threatens almost all Pokemon in the uber tier. Doing aprox 62% to a swithcing in Dragonair. While it can only say- "What Happened?". Focus Blast KOs Larios or any rock or steel type threating to switch in. Psychic can take care of Machoke or any other fighting type. The last one is HP Ice or Grass. As stated before, they both hit for diffrent things. Although HP Ice would be more favorable for the uber tier. Scarf Magmar uses either a Psycical or Special set. The Special being more pefered. As it is like Specs, only less power and more speed. LO Magmar is last. Like the specs set, only with less SP.ATK and can switch moves. Magmar may not be the favorite pokemon in ubers, but it sure can leave a dent in your opponents team.

Machoke
A very very noteworthy Pokemon in ubers. Being able to take out nearly any uber aside from Scyther and Wynaut. STAB Dynamic Punch can OHKO Magnaton, Munchlax, Vigoroth, ect. Having good bulk is also amazing bonus. As it can take many attacks that ubers throw at him. Surviving each. Offence Tank, Scarf, RestTalk can put a dent in many uber teams. KOing Larion is also good. If it has Ice Punch it can KO Dragonair when using Scarf. Overall Machoke is very useful in the ubers metagame. Striking down most of them with Dynamic Punch. This makes it an effiecent sweeper in the ubers metagame.

Haunter
Still a force to be recconed with in Ubers, Hauntr has a few things it needs to say. First of all, it can KO Scyther with Shadow Ball if low enough on health. Being imune to QA is a big bonus. Energy Ball also KOs any Ground type in ubes. Most notably Rhydon who is quite a threat in ubers. Haunter can also use HP Ice to take out Dragons like ScarfBite, Dragonair, or Shelgon who are annoying in ubers. Explousion can be used, but its not reccoemended. Sludge Bomb can be used along with Hypnosis. Or Thunderbolt if you want anouther attacking option. Haunter can pick off quite a few weakened Pokes like Machoke, Buzz, Magmar, Rhydon, and many others. Just like Gengar in OU, Haunter can pack quite a punch if used right.

Rhydon
Being a big threat in ubers, it can put a dent in your team easy. RP Rhydon can damenge many ubers. After RP it can damenge and KO many ubers along with outspeed after RP. Stone Edge can KO Scyther or anything else weak to rock, while EQ can damenge many uber threats like Magnaton and Electabuzz. Fire Punch can also be used. As a more accurate KO option. Rhydon can also KO Larion with EQ. Its good Bulk can be used at full adavantege. CBDon can give anything a huge amount of damenge. However, Scarf Haunter can Energy Ball KO Rhydon after Rock Polish, so. When you can get your speed up, you do. Rhydon can be used as a Sword Dancer as well. Boosting his already huge attack stat even higher.

Kadabra
Just like in OU, Kadabra can be a very threating Poke if you can't handle it. It can outspeed and KO Machoke with Psychic. Enegy Ball KOS Ground types like Rhydon or Marshtomp. HP Ice can be used to KO Dragons that come in. HP Fire can also be used and is partly more favorable. If you want you could use HP over Energy Ball. Which is left for Singal Beam which is the best move it has VS Bronzor. If it has no Heatproof then Singal Beam Can deal more damenge. Shadow ball is last. Used VS other Kadabra or Psychics. Kadabra has a good movepool to abuse, so use it to its fullest.

Piloswine
Anouther good uber canidate. Its like Sneasel, only slower, with more attacking power and more bulk. LO or C-band can be used. Being able to Ko Gabite, Shelgon, and Dragonair easier due to its better power. EQ can of course take out any switch in that it feels coming, and can give it a solid hard hit. Stone Edge can also KO quite a few NFEs. Such as Togetic. While not an OHKO, Piloswine can do quite a number with Avalanche, and Stone Edge. With C-band, Togetic is in alot of danger. Anouther thing is, a Cb set can OHKO a 252 Hp/ 0 DEF Gligar with Ice Shard. Somehting LO can't do. However, the CB set must have better snyergy than LO. Since it is stuck on 1 attack. However, with Cb boosting it attack to monster levels, it can become one of the most threating Pokemon out there. Superpower is the last move. More of a filler, it can hurt Bronzor that come in and wall Piloswine. However, Superpower will do a large number on them along with Porygon2, Munchlax, and Chansey which are common in the uber tier.

Golbat
Probubly the best counter to Monferno. Resisting Mach Punch and outspeeding it. Lead Fero gets KO'd unless Hypnosis misses. NP Golbat can KO any Mix-Ferno with Air Slash. As it hopelessly struggles to damenge it. ScarfFerno is the only set that can handle Golbat. Golbat can also counter any stray Bayleaf or Grotle that stumble upon the uber tier. HP Water or taunt can be used. HP Water Can be used to KO things like Rhydon that can cause your problums. Golbat can also do alot of damenge on Machoke with Air Slash. As it resists fighting and isn't threatened by anything really besides Stone Edge and Ice Punch. Overall Golbat is a decent Pokemon in the uber tier. Handeling alot of strong threats.

Togetic
Although rare, Togetic is very good wall when used right. Taking some of the most threating attacks around. From support, to Specs, to NP Sweeper. Togetic has many ways of being used. Along with a good movepool to go with it. Support can cripple many teams by Thunder Wave, and Seismic Toss. Since most NFEs have no recovery, this could mean the ending for many teams if they can't counter it. Wish can also be used to heal your team after it took a beating. Or, you could use Roost over Wish if you want to. Lastly, Heal Bell or Encore could be used. Making Togetic a superior Wynaut. Choice Specs is anouther set, more of a sweeper. Tri-Attack is used as the main STAB attack which does a good amount on almost anything. HP Water or Water Pulse can be used for and Fire Type that comes in. Fire Blast KOS most Grass types that you could encounter in Ubers. Lastly, Wish, Shadow Ball, or HP Flying can be used. The last set is NP. NP is of course used. Along with HP Flying, Water Pulse/ Shdow Ball, and Roost or Fire Blast. Togetic has amazing bulk, and sweeper abilities. Making it one of the most durable sweepers.

Larion
Just like in OU, Larion continues to reck teams with its extreme power, and bulk. In ubers more Bulk is pefered so it can switch in on things like Dragonairs Draco Meteor and live. Also being able to do a number on many ubers and set up SR and weather whiles hes at it isn't to bad. Offence versions can be from Band, Scarf, or just plain LO. With Head Smash it can decimate things like DD Dragonair while it lives Waterfall. Anouther thing is the fact that some sets can even live a Mix-Dragonairs Surf. While hes sets up weather or whatever hes suppouse to do. EQ can KO Magnazone. Head Smash can take out Scyther(Unless Scyther has Brick Brake. Although not an OHKO unless weakened.)
Larion has enough bulk to survive quite a few hits. But still, it gets KO'd easy by Rhydons EQ, and Machokes Dynamic Punch. Overall though, Larion can be quite a handful in ubers if used right.

Poliwhirl
Although not very worthy of being in ubers, it is great when used in rain with Scarf. Absorbing Aqua Jets, taking Bullet Punches like nothing along with Ice Shard, Scarf Poiliwhirl under rain is very threating. With a boosted STAB Waterfall slamming you in the face you know your in trouble. KOing Sneasel this poke can realy only serve for a few purpouses. Ice Punch to KO weakened Dragons. Or come in on Surf from MixNair. Taking out Sneasel with a 4X effective Brick Brake, or hitting Metang with a rain boosted Waterfall, Poliwhirl can be devastating. Great for a team that needs a Water resist. Although most aren't in RD teams, some should be, as it can't do very much outside KOing Sneasel and doing decent amount to Dragons. Waterfall can still help if you need to defend yourself VS a Monferno or Magmar. Poliwhirl can help VS Monferno, although not very commonly seen. If in rain, it can be used to its fullest. But still, make sure you use it right.

Grovyle
An unpredictable Pokemon. Mix? SD? Special? Grovyle can be very dangerous if used right. Turning the tables is its game. MixVyle can slam you with Energy Ball, Dig, X-Scissor, and HP Ice, Grovyle is great for countering weakened Pokes. HP Ice for Weakened Dragons or non-Scarf Gabites. Energy Ball for any Ground or Water type. X-Scissor for other Grass types or slow Psychic types. While Dig, can take care of Fire types who tend to come in on him. While he outruns, and can land a Super Effective hit on them. SD Grovyle uses SD (of course), Leaf Blade, Thunder Punch, and Dig. After SD, Grovyle is something to be afraid of. With LO helping its already boosted attacks, it is soemthing that can tear your team apart. Leaf Blade is for as usual, Water or Ground Types and Rock types. Thunder Punch can be replaced by Rock Slide for the chance of Flinch. While dig takes care of Fire types. The last set that useful in ubers is Special sweeper. Leaf Storm does the obvious. Dragon Breath for dragons with a chance to Paralyze it. HP Fire KO'd Snover or Sneasel switchins or anything else weak to it. While Swift is a filler for anything else that gets in the way. LO or Specs can be used. Overall Grovyle is something that is known as the "Mix-Ape Of NFE" due to its good stats all around. Making it a suitible sweeper.

Bronzor
One of the best walls in NFE. Bronzor can still be used even though Dusclops has better defences. First of all, Bronzor only has one weakness, Ground Or Fire depending on ability. Second, it can set up weather effects. Making it ideal for any weather team. Third, it can set up screens making yoru team untouchable while you sweep. And fourth, it has the move Trick, which is why it can always Trick Its Scarf to you to screw you over. Anouther fantastic ability is that it can beat Scyther. Resisting Aerial Ace it becomes a hard problum to get rid of. Gyro Ball does a large amount on Scyther. Using Psychic over Gyro ball is also an option. 2HKOing Machoke in some cases can be very helpful. Although it suffers confusion, and can be beat fats this way. Scarfers and Pokes like Sneasel also fear Bronzor. As it can Gyro Ball and KO them, while they, are struggling to get you down to half HP. If it carries Levitate then Piloswine becomes a weak canidate to fight. Using Levitate and RD Bronzor make it untouchable. As Fire moves a half powered. Meaning Bronzor cantake even more hits. Setting up SR is also good. As it can be used as a fantastic utility Pokemon. When done, depending on set and moves, it can explode and kill you. Opening chance for a sweeper to come in. All these abilitys make Bronzor extremely valuble on a weather team. Fast Pokemon and Scarfers are easily KO'd by Gyro Ball. Overall Bronzor is a fantastic Pokemon in ubers. Its extremely usefu lin so many ways.

Gligar
Gligar is very useful. Just like in OU, it can pose a threat to quite a few Pokes. SD Gligar can badly damenge teams if you let it set up. Night Slash helps KO Psychic types Like Kadabra. EQ for stuff like Rhydon or the rare Graveler. Stone Edge takes care of things like Togetic and Golbat who are decently common in Ubers. While it also can cover the rare Murkrow and Sealeo. Gligar serves well as a Bulky Psycical attacker. However, it can also server well as a lead. Being able to set up SR under most circumstances due to its good Bulk. Lastley, a counter tank set abuses Gligars good defences and acess to Counter. Being able to KO many Pokes with using it. It uses Roost for healing so it dosen't die so easily. While Stone Edge and EQ are left to KO whats left. Like Electabuzz and Togetic who can be quite annoying.

Shelgon
Being one of the Dragons used in Ubers, Shelgon has good stats like its other counterparts. Only, this one, with higher defence and a bit lower speed. However, when coupled with DD it can turn into a terryfing sight. The all out offence DD set can damenge many Pokemon after DD. Brick Brake can do heavy damenge to Larion. Dragon Claw OHKOs any Dragon after DD. While its last move, Double Edge, is complimented by its ability Rock Head, Which prevents it from taking recoil damenge. Coupled with LO it can reck anybodys team that dosen't have a counter to it. Anouther set is the Bulky Dancer. Which focuses more on defence than offence. Still though, after +1 all of its moves will still be very powerful. Overall Shelgon is a very strong Pokemon even in ubers. Its defences are good enough so that it can handle some of the strong Psycical Pokemon of the Uber Tier. Making it a very solid Pokemon.

Croconaw
One of the Bulky users of DD who isn't weak to Dragon or Ice, infact it resists Ice. Crocanaws good helpers include somebody who sets up screens so it gets up a very large amount of DDs so it can sweep. Waterfall is for a nice STAB move that can harm a large part of the NFE Metagame. Ice Punch is for Grass or Dragons types it encounters. As it KOs Dragonair after DD. Superpower is for stuff like Porygon2 which can be taken out when using a less defencive set and has 1 or 2 DDS up. As, after DD and using 220 SPEED EVS and Jolly nature it outruns max speed Kadabra and Elecrabuzz. So, the conclusion is, if used with the right support it can set up quite easy, then, it can get a sweep going. If it gets +2 it outruns Sneasel and ScarfBite, so, remember, let it set up whenever it can. Just so it won't get killed by something like CB Sneasel's Faint Attack. So, remember, never underestimate a little extra support for your team.

Tangela
Mainly used for Sunny Day in ubers instead of some other sets in OU. For any Sunny Day team though Tangela is a worthy canidate. As with the standered set it reaches 396 speed whch is quite alot. As it can tear teams apart with its STAB 120 base power Solar Beam which can damenge a large bit of NFE. Coupled with HP Fire and the Fire move boost from sun it becomes even more devastating, along with LO tagging along. Metang and Magnaton take a huge amount when sun is up. While Shock Wave is for any Water type that crosses it's path. Ancient Power covers Magmar or Charmeleon that try to threaten it. So, Tangela makes a fantastic canidate to any Sunny Day team. Devastating a huge amount of the NFE metagame with its decent movepool. It's fantastic SP.ATK and ability is pretty much enough to respct this pokemon in ubers. Along with its good defence.

Cranidos
With its massive attack Cranidos can very well be the most hard hitting Pokemon in NFE on the Psycical side. RPDos reaches 430 SPED after 1 RP which outspeeds Sneasel, a strong threat, although Ice Shard still does a number. It also can use EQ, which damenges things like Metang or Rhydon, or anything resistant to Stone Edge. Fire Punch is it's last move. It handles Grass or Steel Types. It's biggest downside though is it's defences which are very low. So, you must have something to help you with it's low defence. Put aside that, and you have an amazing Pokemon on your team.

Marshtomp
Marshtomp can be used in many ways. In OU, it's a fantastic lead and sweeper. In ubers, a sweeper is it's main set. CBTomp is very threating with a STAB 100 base power EQ being thrown at you. If Torrent is activated, then Waterfall will devistate even some of the most powerful defencive Pokemon in ubers. Ice Punch is for Dragons who it encounters, as it KOs most of them for the exception of Shelgon due to it's high defence. It's last move, Stone Edge, is for Togetic and Golbat mainly. Which both take a huge beating. A Curse set is also viable. Although CB has instant power, Haunter and Kadabra are always lurking around the corner, ready to KO you with Energy Ball. Which in CB, they are afraid of switching into all of there attacks, bar Haunter and EQ. This doesn't mean Curse can't be used, it's just not the most favorable. So, give Marshtomp a little support and watch your opponent get torn appart with terror.


Primplup
The only UU NFE in Ubers. Although, it may seem stupid, it can sweep teams if it sets up. The move that makes this all work is agility. Raising my speed up to extreme levels. Then, I sub until Petaya and Torrent activate. Giving me a special attack and a surf a big bonus power. Then,you Surf and Ice Beam the team away. Only being walled by other water types, and sometimes Chansey. Poliwhirl and other Primplup counter this guy easily. Somake sure you have an Electric type paired with you to take these guys out. Otherwise, once it sets up to worldis gonna come down.

Dusclops
Being the best wall in NFE with very high defences on both sides, the acess to moves like Pain Split, and WoW it can become very dangerous if used right. Cuttinng Scyther, Vigoroth, Machoke, and even stuff like Sneasels attack in half. While it can regain health with Pain Split. Focus Punch can be used over WoW if you want it for something like Chansey which can't exactly hurt it. Rock Slide can be used solely for Scyther, Dusclops number one counter. Night Shade is your last attack. Doing 100 damenge constantly, it can be very annoying if you have no recovery. Dusclops is fantastic at weaking other Pokes. With its massive defence backing it up.

Chansey
Look out for Chansey. A very troublesome pokemon. By that I mean, walling any Special sweeper to death and Toxic killing your Dusclops. This IS the reason for Machoke in Ubers. So it can KO Chansey. Chansey is a very annoying Pokemon. From toxic stalling, Wish support, and also reliable recovery. However, Chansey isn't invinsible. Machoke and CB Sneasel can spell the end for it. Infact, most psycical attackers can take chansey. Mix-Ferno can Close Combat it for the KO. While Scyther can SD up and do a very heavy amount with Aerial Ace or KO with Brick Brake if it has it. As you can see, there are many counters to Chansey in Ubers, however, it can still be a pain if used with the right counterparts. This is why Machoke is one your ubers team. Not just to stop pesky Porygon2, to stop the strongest special wall in NFE. With huge HP and SP.DEF to back it up.

Scyther
Bow down in fear of the most threating sweeper in NFE. Even though Sneasel can KO it, it still earns a good title. With SD in its movepool, once it sets up your in trouble. Although varients of Metang can help you, nobody wants to switch into a +2 LO boosted Night Slash or Brick Brake. Aerial Ace KO'd nearly every Grass type in ubers. If they are even seen. It can be used as a good STAB attack VS Magmar who can cause decent trouble. While Monferno fears this set as well, not being able to outspeed, or KO. It can only watch as it gets KO'd by Aerial Ace. Dusclops, although with alot of Bulk can be KO'd by Night Slash after SD. If SR is up or any further weaking, your done. This makes Scyther one of the most powerful sweepers in NFE. If your Scyther counter is gone there is no way of survival. However, being 4X weak to SR puts a huge dent in it. Making it less efficent. Scyther as a lead is also effective. Being able to confront some leads. Although, its not a full fledged sweeper. Overall Scyther is a good Pokemon in NFE. If you can get SR blown away, then your in for a terrible time.

Pikachu
Mainly used as a Special Sweeper, Pikachu is devastating when used right. First off T-Bolt KOs nearly and Water type in NFE. Along with doing a number to non-resisted Pokemon. Second, Surf KOS Rhydon which overwise is very threating. It also is the best move VS Monferno. HP Ice is for Dragons like Shelgon that it confronts. Lastly, Singal Beam is for Grass Types it encounters, although this move is more of a filler than a "needed" move. Life Orb MUST be used or Choice Specs as it dosen't have very much power attacking wise. Anouther movest it can use is Light Ball Volt Tackle. Having Surf on that movest is 100% needed. As it can't do very much to Rhydon otherwise. Pikachu isn't one of the best Pokes out there. But it still can prove to be useful.

Porygon2
Porygon2 makes a great offence/defence Pokemon. As it has a good movepool, and good Base Stats. You can make it a Psycical wall, Special Wall, Mixed wall, or even a sweeper. With a decent SP.ATK stat Ice Beam can be used to its full power. Being able to survive ScarfBites Outrage and then KO back with Ice Beam. Being mostly the same with the other Dragons. Gligar is also badly threatened. Also having a reliable recovery move means even more trouble. Psychic is an option on the sweeper set just to counter Machoke. Thunderbolt can be used over Psychic to hit things like Water Types or Flying Types. Tri-Attack is its main STAB attack. Charge beam is also an option on a Charge Beam set. After +1 Tri Attack becomes a very threating move to any thing. Ice Beam can also be used, although Tri Attack does a number on all Dragons. So, Psychic is a a possible better option to KO Machoke. Lastly, the more defencive sets have mostly HP and DEF or Sp.DEF EVS depending on which set. Overall Porygon2 makes a efficent sweeper or wall in NFE. Being able to handle some of the most threating Pokes out there. This may be the reason ScarfChoke is the most common Uber varient. To outrun it sets and KO it without to much trouble.

Clamperl
Being one of the most threating Pokemon to switch into, it can turn the tables on the switch. The DeepSeaTooth doubles SP.ATK. When coupled with HP Fighting anything on the switch will take a hefty amount of damenge. Surf or Muddy Water depends on accurecy loss and less accurecy of its own, or 100% accurecy and no accurecy loss. Ice Beam can KO any swithcing in Dragons. If Sub is up it can KO most Pokemon it is facing. Anouther set is DeepSeaScale which boost SP.DEF. Getting it to 320. With that, it can become a decent special wall. Although its horrible HP can't back it up. Aqua Ring can help healwhile Body Slam can Para your opponent while you get to attack first and get extra healing if possible. Clamperl can be quite useful if used right.

Magnaton
Magnaton is a very powerful Poke. Just like Magnazone in OU it can work very good. First of all, the Scarf set can be quite a treat. Still reaching 339 SP.ATK with Timid it can really put a dent in your team. HP Ice can KO most Dragons, while HP Grass KOs Grass types liek Marshtomp and Rhydon. HP Grass is a bit moe favored. However, not by to much. Anouther version is the Bulkier Charge Beam set. After Charge Beam this Poke can destroy teams. Mainly under sub. As even strong walls like Chansey could go down after being set upon after multiple Charge Beams. Thunderbolt/Charge Beam/Substitute/Hidden Power Grass can work quite well. Something that can get rid of the Dragons is a good counterpart. One there gone this Magnaton can run rampant. This is a very useful pokemon incase of once its threats are gone.

Wynaut
Like its evolved counterpart in standered Ubers, Wynaut can still prove useful. It can turn set up pokemon to set up bait. While its good HP can somewhat cover it. Adding defence EVs is helpful for it to survive and +1 Pokemon like +1 Dragonair. Other weaker Psycical attacks can be countered while it takes a huge amount. Encore can fix pokemon into one move. Mainly if its setting up. Shadow Tag prevent it from ecaping. Making a switch out easier. You can set up your own move and then proceed to sweep. Overall Wynaut can be quite annoying to a team that isn't able to land a strong super effective move on it. A CB Sneasel can KO with Faint Attack. While Pokes that have set up already have a higher KO chance if Wynaut already to a beating. Overall Wynaut is a good canidate to something that needs to get rid of many certein threats that can cause trouble.

Munchlax
A very good Uber Special wall with all the poweful Sp.attackers running rampant. Having fantastic HP and 295 SP.DEF max Sp.def, and coupled with Curse to boost defences, it can handle quite a few threats. With Fire Punch and Body Slam it can do quite alot after Curse. Although things like Machoke and Monferno and some strong Focus Blasts can 2-1HKO Munchlax even after Curse. Meaning have soemthing that can KO these important. A Golbat can be a decent teamate being able to KO Monferno and Machoke afetr NP. Unless Machoke is scarf, which not all are. Once Munchlaxes threats are gone it can be free to sweep. Fire Punch for Magnazone and Scyther along with anything Body Slam can't hit. With its monster defences, and fantastic HP. After it egts a few Curses up there isn't much that can't stop it. Things like Electabuzz and Magmar can cause Munchlax problums with Focus Blast, which, if hits, can deal a serious amount. Mainly Magmars. To remedy this, you have to have a counter to these threats. The closest overall counter is a possible ScarfBite which can KO Electabuzz and Magmar with EQ. While Machoke who are weakened can be taken out by Outrage. Monferno can only hit with Mach Punch which can't KO. Although, you will really only have to counter 1 or 2 at once. Which, some of your other pokes can also aid in.

Vigoroth
A uber that is neglected, it is very threating in the rigth hands. CBRoth starts it out. Ice Punch KOS nearly every Dragon bar some Shelgon. Night Slash can help vs Dusclops, although not a KO, its more leaned VS taking out weakened Pokes. Return for STAB move. While EQ can be used as a Larion counter. This set has great power, when coupled with 306 SPED it can be ver threating. Now, although this set seems completly outclassed by Sneasel, it has some Bonuses. With Sucker Punch being avalible as a sub for Night Slash, it can priorty many threats like Scarf Haunter, Kadabra, and weakened Electabuzz and Magmar. Along with anything else that is weakened. A Bulk up set can also be used. After +1 Return turns into a extremely powerful move. Night Slash deals a large amount to Dusclops as well. However, it won't KO. It will have to be weakened to KO. EQ is its last move. KOing Larion, and doing a large number on Rhydon, it can deal a huge amount to any poke. If used right it can sweep teams efficently.

Wrap Up
These Pokemon are not the only Pokemon that can be used in ubers. Other Pokemon like Diglett are viable in ubers as it can KO Kadabra and Haunter with Sucker Punch. However, its not a very "notable" Pokemon in ubers as its low attack stat can suffer. Its fragile defences and bad HP make it worse. Although it has good speed, and a Choice Band set many seem quite useful, it can always be countered. Being KO'd by most moves its switches into besides Electric. Other Pokes Like Screen Bayleaf and Grotle are outclassed by Bronzor due to superior resistence. Being able to use Trick, Screens, SR, and Gyro Ball all in one is something that can outclass Bayleaf. While Bronzor has only 1 weakness, Bayleaf has quite a few. Bronzor can also explode when the job is done. Badly damenging anything that isn't resistant to it. Its simply about what fits better in the tier. Bronzor resists normal making it a decent Banded Vigroth counter. Setting up Screens to soften its attacks. This guide hopefully explained what are some useful tatics and Pokes to use in ubers. Remember, spaming a team with ubers dosen't make it good. What makes it good is Snynergy, counters to common threats, and of course a balance of offence to destroy your threats. This just got you started. Now, you can learn about Leads, Sweepers, walls, and many other tatics that will help you in ubers play. First though, lets start with the most important thing of a team. What gives you a head start, the:



Leads


Jolly
252 ATK/ 252 SPED/ 6 HP
@Focus Sash
Aerial Ace
Quick Attack
Night Slash
U-turn/Sword Dance

Ahhhhhh. One of the most common Anti-Leads. With greak speed, it can devistate certein standered ones that people expect will still work in Ubers. With Techniton boosting AA to a fantastic amount of power, it can become a large threat. If you choose SD, and get to set up with it, you can turn into a complete full fledged sweeper easy. U-turn gives the merit of switching out from leads Like metang which wall otherwise. It takes a big chunk out of its health, while safely ecaping. LO would be more favored If using U-turn. As you will be swithcing more if so. While with SD you would stay and set up. While surviving. Making it a good sweep starter.




Adamant
252 HP/252 ATK/6 HP
@Shuca Berry/Occa Berry
Meteor Mash
Earthquake
Ice Punch/Stealth Rock
Bullet Punch

Anouther good anti-lead. It counters Scyther quite nice.It can take every move with ease besides Night Slash and U-turn, which won't OHKO. Shuca is for other Metang. Ice Punch can take care of dragons. However, you can give him SR if you want to get it up earlier. As it is very capable of doing that. It also counters Sneaseland Kadabra leads which can always be a pain to take on. A possible threat to this set is Gligar. Who, if you don't use Ice Punch,will be able to setup SR. While you MM it, not being a 2HKO. Thisis where Shuca comes in, It can take EQ with more health. Damenge it again. And,if it has it low enough BP it. Or,save metang for later. Occa Berry IS optional. for being able to counter a Monferno lead. One of the most threating. Being KO'd with EQ + BP. Apart from this Metang makes a very solid offencive and defencive lead. Turning the tables is what it does.


Jolly
252 ATK/252 SPED/6 HP
@Focus Sash
Ice Shard
Ice Punch
Pursuit
Brick Brake/Taunt

While being completly countered by Metang leads, it can KO Kadabra and Scyther easy. With higher speed it can simple Ice Punch + Ice Shard them both. Pursuit is if anyone decides to ecape. Such as Kadabra for later game. Taunt can be used over Brick Brake if you are going to let Sneasel die earlier. To prevent them from setting up SR. All these moves are standered, and result in the same thing on a normal basis. It can be saved for later, to reck havik late game, when a ScarfBite is after you. Or, it can be used to attempt to take out the Lead, and stop them from using SR. Its a pretty easy set to use. As it has a quick job of attacking, then it can go. Making it a fragile suicide lead. However,a more effective one at most.




Timid
252 SP.ATK/252 SPED/6 SP.DEF
@Focus Sash
Psychic
Taunt
Protect
Energy Ball


Something which is underrated. Scyther, Metang, and Sneasel all counter it. However, it can counter an annoying threat, Monferno. Being able to counter most leads (besides Scyther). Fire Blast/Mach Punch is very threating.Kadabra can shut this down, partly. With inner focus it can't flinch. While it gets it down to 1 HP they are left with either Set up SR, or Fire Blast + Mach Punch and win. Now, most can predict this however, it can still be a decent lead. Meaning Kadabra as a lead is much more useful than in OU. It also 2HKOs Gligar with Psychic. A good bonus. Energy Ball KOs any Marshtomp or Graverler leads that are stray here. Making Kadabra, a good counter to begginers who still use Marshtomp in the uber tier.



Naive
252 SPED/ 176 SP.ATK/ 82 ATK
@Focus Sash
Fire Blast
Mach Punch
Stealth Rock/Hidden Power[Grass]
Fake Out

The ultimate uber lead counter. It can be made a offencive anti-lead. Or, use SR and set it up quick and KO. Scyther gets Fake Out in the face then KO'd with Fire Blast. Metang gets Fake Out and KO'd with Fire Blast. Sneasel gets Fake Out and Mach Punched to death. Even Kadabra can't win. Protect + Psychic can't win VS Fire Blast + Mach Punch. However, it will get it down to its sash. HP Grass KO's Marshtomp and Gravaler leads whitch are stray. While Fire Blast KOs almost any other common lead. For EVS, you can change them as much as you want. For diffrent attacking power. However, with these EVS KO the leads listed above. Using 224 SP.ATK is optional. Or 200 in SP.ATK. Making sure it is a KO. Occa Berry Metang is one of the few counters. Surving Fire Blast and Mach Punch. While EQ + BP KOS. Making it a decent counter. Otherwise, this is quite a threating lead. Something which can tear your team apart. Unless Golbat is your lead. Which can beat Monferno. Along with some Kadabra that can get luck on there side or predict. Unless Hypnosis missed or they KO Kadabra first.



Jolly
252 ATK/ 212 SPED/ 44 DEF
@Leftovers
Hypnosis
Brave Bird
U-Turn
Roost

Golbat. One of the few counters to lead Monferno, Goltbat can also defeat over common leads. Metang can counter however, by not taking very much from Brave Bird. However, it can be beat by Brave Bird spam. Then roosting up. It can damenge many leads. Outspeeding them all. Thankfully, to Hypnosises low accurecy, it won't always hit. Sneasel is a good counter. It can use Ice Punch or taunt to prevent it from Hypnosis, then Ice Punch while it U-turn away. Making Sneasel a decent counter. Kadabra can KO Golbat wiht Psychic. Making Golbat a smaller threat. Being erased early game. Overall Golbat is a good lead in general. As long as you can cover its weaknesses, it should be a good Pokemon to use.

Lead Wrap Up
These may not be all the leads. However, they are the most common. Being able to keep each other in balance. The uber tier is full of anti-leads. Meaning the more defencive leads of the OU tier become less effective. Although some leads can still be used, they are less common, resulting in you setting SR up later. There are many other leads out there besides these. So, you can always come up with your own. Now that we finished with our leads, lets begin with the more defencive side of uber NFE. Although not many, they can prove there own in a very powerful offencive metagame. They are the center of stall teams. We all know them well. They are the:


Walls



Impish
252 HP/ 216 DEF/ 40 SP.DEF
@Leftovers
Pain Split
Night Shade
Will-o-Wisp
Rock Slide

Dusclops is a fantastic Pokemon in Uber NFE. Outclassing Misdreveus by defences by quite a bit (although it can still be used due to screens and Perish Song ability). Since there are a large amount of Psycical sweepers in NFE WoW earns a welcomed spot. As it can cripple Sneasel, DD Dragonair, ScarfBite, SD Gligar, and its largest threat Scyther along with many more. Doing 100 damenge with Night Shade can pose large problums for a large amount of NFES. Anouther thing that makes Dusclops favorable is that it can stop Machoke in its tracks. As Payback won't be doing a very large amount due to most Machokes outspeeding Dusclops. WoW can completly cripple it. Making it useless. Its last move Rock Slide is for its biggest threat, Scyther. As SD + Night Slash can deal a large amount. The best way to KO Dusclops is by wearing it down, as it has no recovery. Making a Scyther a perfect counter to weakened ones. Trick also can screw Dusclops over by a unsuspected Bronzor. Overall Dusclops can cripple a large amount of NFES by with just a little support.



Calm
252 HP/ 16 DEF/ 240 SP.DEF
@Leftovers
Thunder Wave
Heal Bell / Encore
Seismic Toss / Tri Attack
Roost / Wish

Although it seems outclassed by Dusclops by weakness, and defences, it can prove to still be useful. Being able to cripple scarfers like Magmar and Haunter is quite useful. Even better it has a reliable recovery move. Wish, or Roost. It can be used for Wish passing, or by self healing faster. It can also be used to turn some Pokemon into set up bait. Or, you can use Heal Bell to help get rid of your teams status. S-Toss delivers quite a dent to many NFEs not named ghost types, Chansey, or Munchlax. Although it can Encore to back it up. Togetic can counter Pokemon like Monferno as it can be worn down by S-Toss + Life Orb combo. Magmar can be T-waved then Wish/Roost + S-tossed on. Although, you can use Tri Attack over S-toss due to Serence Grace giving a chance to burn, freeze, or paralyze, S-toss is a bit more pefered as it can tend to do more damenge. Probubly the best counter to Togetic is Specs Electabuzz or Charge Beam Magnaton. As Togetic can't completly keep up with conseccutive special boosts. Although it can live longer if it uses Roost dropping its Electric weakness it can still be quite weakened. Overall Togetic is a fantastic Pokemon in Uber NFE. Walling a majority of special attackers.


Bold
252 HP/ 224 DEF/34 SP.ATK
@Leftovers
Ice Beam
Tri Attack
Thunder Wave
Recover

The Psycical defencive set of Porygon2 is very useful, as it can cripple quite a few threats, meaning it is one of the most useful Pokemon out there. First of all, Ice Beam KOs Gabite while they can only do 38% max with outrage with a Jolly Nature. Shelgon and Dragonair face the same fate. Even though Mix-Dragonair can do a good amount with Draco Meteor, Porygon can recover it off while Ice Beam can finish it while it hopelessly tries to KO it. Sneasels Brick Brake also can't do more than 49%, even when banded! Meaning Porygon can mostly shake it off with T-wave + Recover. Although if SR is up it can 2HKO it, SR won't always get up. Ice Beam can also KO Gligar. Tri Attack is the best move it has VS Sneasel. Althought it will 2HKO with SR up it will be left with fewer HP. Porygon2 however has some decently common counters such as Specs Magmar with Focus Blast as it can decimate it. However, the chance that Focus Blast will miss is pretty high. Even though Porygon has high defence, a STAB Machokes Dynamic Punch can 2HKO. As Porygon2 can't compeat with that. Overall Psycical defencive Porygon is a fantastic Pokemon for a team who has trouble with threats like ScarfBite.


Calm
252 DEF/ 200 SP.DEF/ 58 HP
@Leftovers
Seismic Toss
Toxic
Softboiled
Ice Beam

Chansey is the supreme special wall of NFE. With having fantastic HP and SP.DEF it can take almost any special attack in the game. It can wall Specs Electabuzz and Magmar as Focus Blast can be walled out or just plain missing. Toxic can stall out Dusclops or Togetic as they can fall easy unless they carry Heal Bell. Porygon2 is also in trouble with Toxic as it goes down after awhile. Infact, most walls go down after they been stausted. Chansey however falls to most strong psycical attacks. Machoke, MixFerno, Metang, or many others can take Chansey out. Although Metang dosen't always prevail, it can still do a very large chunck to Chansey. CB Sneasel can also KO Chansey as it will fall after awhile. Anouther bonus of Chansey is that it can wall Kadabra and Haunter, two very strong threats in NFE. Overall Chansey is a good Pokemon. Walling most special threats, it is very handy. Although it's defence is low its teamates can help with that one.


Impish
252 HP/ 252 DEF/ 6 SP.DEF
@Leftovers/Shed Shell
Light Screen
Reflect
Meteor Mash
Earthquake

Althoug many of you may think Bronzor may be more effective for this role of screens, your wrong. Metang is helpful for 2 reasons on stall teams, it has useful resistences, and can fight incase DD Shelgon comes in. Taking a large percentege every turn from LO and MM. EQ is for Nosepass, Magnaton, Larion, and other Metang. This Metang pairs well with stall teams and support as it can set up under screens while it heals with wish. In ubers it can help even further. As it can help its teamates figh the ever more common CBSneasel. Or Mix-ferno. It can also support Chansey even farther making it a psycical and special wall. Metang is a very trustworthy teamate in ubers as well. With Light Screen up it can switch into a LO Dragonairs Draco Meteor and finish it with MM. Overall Metang is useful as a wall in ubers. Constantly supporting its teamates with Screens, all it requires is a little help.


Walls Wrap Up
These are the most common walls in OU NFE. Using there abilites to the fullest. They fit there way on teams that need help with a certein threat, or need soem healing support. Or Reflect and Light Screen to help Stat uppers like DD Shelgon sweep easier, they have it all. Hopefully you can use them to there fullest to. As they have alot of pros to abuse. There large defences, good move pool, ablity at crippling foes, or just plain helping take down something like Machoke whos very common in ubers. Now that we have finished covering the walls, lets move on to the more offencive side of Ubers. Most having a wide movepool they can take advantege of there attacking ability. Yes, you guessed it. There the start of of offencive teams, they are the:


Sweepers



Jolly
252 ATK/ 252 SPED/ 4 DEF
@Life Orb/Choice Band
Ice Shard
Ice Punch
Pursuit/Faint Attack
Brick Brake

Being the most common poke in OU NFE it stays one of the most common. However, CBSneasel is slightly more common due to its newly needed power to help take out Machoke as its become a more common sight than before. It also helps to always insure KOs on other pokes. Such as Larion. More defencive versions of Larion can't always be OHKO'd by Brick Brake. While C-band always KOS. Unless Impish Larion is used which can survive banded Brick Brake, however, not many people do use Impish Larion. CBSneasel can also KO Careful 4 DEF Munchlax most of the time with SR, something LO Sneasel can't muster. Sneasel can also KO Togetic with Banded Ice Punch. Even if it uses Bold. Something LO, again can't do. Sneasels biggest counter is Metang. Anouther thing is Faint Attack is more pefered on CBSneasel due to just power. However pursuit can be used. Both however put a large dent in Dusclops. Something that can prove to be hard to get rid of. Overall Sneasel can cause serious problums for teams due to its strong power and good attack and speed.


Timid
252 SP.ATK/ 252 SPED/ 6 DEF
@Life Orb
Psychic
Energy Ball
Singal Beam
Shadow Ball

One of the best special sweepers of uber NFE it can sweep entire teams if your not perpared for it. Psychic can OHKO Machoke while Enegy Ball for Rhydon or any other Ground and Water type out there. Singal Beam is for Grass Types or the rare Tangela on a Sunny Day Team. Shodow Ball covers LO Haunter and other Kadabra. However, with the rise of Chansey Kadabra can be in trouble from this. As it can be walled unlike in OU NFE much easier. Metang can also threaten Kadabra alot just like in OU. Sneasel is anouther threat, however, it always was. Scarfers do cause this poke problums to as well. ScarfBite and ScarfHaunter can end this pokemons sweep. So, having a Sneasel as a teamate could quite work. If used right this pokemon can sweep entire teams. However, new found counters like Magnaton are very dangerous. So, you should be able to help cover these with partner pokemon.


Naive
252 SPED/ 56 SP.ATK/ 200 ATK
@Life Orb
Fire Blast
Hidden Power[Ice]
Close Combat
Thunder Punch

Standered Mix-Ferno. It can do severe damenge to teams once they are weakened a bit. Fire Blast can OHKO Metang, while Close Combat can KO Chansey and 2HKOing Porygon2. Thunder Punch is for Water types or weaker Flying types. With LO boosting its attacks it becomes twice as effective. Monferno can badly damenge teams is used right. Although it has a few counters. Scarf Poliwhirl can check Monferno wirh Waterfall, ScarfBite can also KO with Earthquake. Bulky water types alos are problums. Overall Monferno isn't bad though. As it can be used very well when supported. Monferno is a good edition to any team if they need a slightly slower sweeper.


Jolly
252 ATK/ 252 SPED/ 6 HP
@Choice Scarf
Outrage
Earthquake
Stone Edge
Shadow Claw

Gabite can take out some of the most threating pokemon in Ubers. The first being Magnaton and Monferno. As they can harn a handful of NFES. Gabite can also KO Shelgon as well, there DD is completly wasted as it is OHKO'd. However, Gabite has his own problums. 1 being Sneasel. Which can OHKO it with Ice Shard. Anouther threat is a Metang swithcing into an Outrage set off to KO some Shelgon who tried to threaten you. This makes a Metang a great partner countering some of its threats like Sneasel. Stone Edge is for Togetic which can cause this set problums although it won't KO, after SR the Togetic is pretty much finished. While Shadow Claw can help vs Dusclops and Wynaut. Overall Gabite is a fantastic sweeper that can sweep entire teams that are unprepared.


Jolly
252 ATK/ 252 SPED/ 6 HP
@Choice Scarf
Dynamic Punch
Ice Punch
Earthquake
Bullet Punch

Machoke is a very strong Pokemon in ubers. As a large amount of Ubers are weak to fighting. It also can KO Larion and Dragonair due to its new gained speed. However, it can still be countered by Electabuzz, Magmar, and Kadabra as it can not outspeed them still. A Pokemon like Gabite could help as they can be handled by EQ for all 3. Machoke can also be used as a Sleep Talk set which is more Bulky. All sets can work however, so you can try and see which one fits your team. If you want a decently Bulky sweeper in ubers Machoke is right for you. As its strong STAB Dyanamic Punch can hit anything in its way. Although, Golbat can get in its way by 4X resisting it. Confusion will still leave a mark though. So, Sneasel could also be used with Machoke, or even Haunter to an exstent. All and all Machoke is a very good sweeper in Ubers. Being able to deal hits with great power. This is one of the reasons CBSneasel becane so popular.


Rash
140 ATK/ 196 SP.ATK/ 172 SPED
@Life Orb
Draco Meteor
Extreme Speed
Fire Blast
Surf

MixNair is very useful in ubers. Although DD works to, this set can help VS Metang who is a large threat to DD Dragonair. Draco Meteor can KO Shelgon who are quite annoying. It can also be used as a finishing move for something like RestTalk Machoke. Fire Blast is used for Grass Types or or Metang which can wall Metang normally. Surf is for Fire Types or Larion who also pose a threat to DD version. While Extreme speed can be used for a finish attack for a scarfer like Gabite or Machoke. DD Dragonairs threats are ScarfBite and Sneasel by nature, along with ScarfChoke as long as it can't be killed with Extreme Speed. ShucaTang can work well as it can survive EQ from Gabites EQ and KO with Ice Punch. While MM can KO Sneasel. If used with the right partners it can be very threating to a large amount of pokemon in this metagame.


Timid
252 SPED/ 252 SP.ATK/ 6 HP
@Life Orb
Thunderbolt
Focus Blast
Psychic
Hidden Power[Ice]

Quite a succesful sweeper in Ubers, it can KO a large amount of Pokemon. Focus Blast can OHKO Larion. While Psychic can KO Machoke after SR most of the time. Thunderbolt KOS any water type in its way. Making it a feirce opponent. HP Ice is for Dragons or Grass types that stray in the tier. Electabuzz faces problums of faster sweepers, or speed ties. Sneasel can come in on slightly weakened Buzz and KO wiht Ice Punch. While if Kadabra wins the speed tie, it KOs with Psychic also. A Metang partner may be useful as long as Kadabra lacks HP Fire or Sneasel has a C-banded Faint Attack which can do quite a bit to Metang even with its good defences (Although Psycical metang can best it easy due to defences). Electabuzz is quite easy to use in ubers with its wide movepool, as long as its weaknesses are covered.


Jolly
252 ATK/ 200 SPED/ 58 SP.DEF
@Musle Band
Earthquake
Stone Edge/Rock Slide
Fire Punch
Rock Polish

Rhydon is one of the most threating sweepers in NFE. It threatens a large amount of ubers with QuakeEdge combo being unresisted. 200 speed EVS outrun max speed Kadabra and Electabuzz, however, even more speed EVS are needed. Fire Punch is for any Grass types that switch in on Rhydon. The biggest counters to Rhydon include Scarf Haunter, Scarf Poliwhirl, or anything that has the set up advantege beforehand. These threats are harder to counter together. Although they almost never are. Haunter can be countered by Sneasel. While Poliwhirl can be countered by a bulky grass type like Bayleaf or Grotle although not common in ubers. If its weaknesses are covered up beforehand then it can sweep entire teams.


Adamant
252 ATK/ 252 SPED/ 6 DEF
@Life Orb
Dragon Claw
Brick Brake
Dragon Dance
Fire Fang

One of very most threating pokemon in OU regains it's title once again here. Dragon Claw OHKOs any Dragon that it encounters, even Bulky Shelgon faces trouble. Brick Brake is for Larion and Rhydon which can confront it although not a KO on Rhydon however. Lastly, Fire Fang is is for Grass Types or steel. Metang can completly wall this set. So, Fire Fang is the best move against it. Shelgons biggest counters are Sneasel or ScarfBite. As Banded Ice Punch can OHKO. The best counters are among Metang. The reason is it can wall Sneasel besides banded Faint Attack and ScarfBites EQ. You should have a counter for each of these. Metang + your Own Sneasel can work. As Sneasel can KO Gabite with Ice Shard, while Metang can handle your opponents. However, these two pokemon are hard to counter. Unless Gabite locks into Outrage and Metang can Ice Punch it to death. Put aside its weaknesses and you have one feirce Pokemon.


Adamant
252 HP/ 252 ATK/ 6 DEF
@Shuca Berry
Ice Punch/Explousion
Earthquake
Meteor Mash
Bullet Punch

Metang as a pure offencive beast is amzing. Although, it may not appear to be. MM is for something like Sneasel that lives through BP or Kadabra with a good amount of health. BP is a finsihed move for soemthing that could KO you if you don't have priorty. EQ is for Larion, as it lives its EQ with Shuca Berry and KOs back. Ice Punch is used for Dragons like DD Dragonair, Shelgon lacking Fire Fang or Gabite locked in Outrage. However, Metang still has som common weaknesses. First, Monferno can KO with Fire Blast along with Magmar. While Metang can't defend itself against them. Thats where Poliwhirl comes in. It resists Fire and can come in and OHKO both of them. And since later game Monfero dosen't have Mach Punch, Poliwhirl can safely come in and KO them. Then, Poliwhirl is safe to sweep. Making these to a strong combo.

Ice Shard
Avalanche
Earthquake
Stone Edge/Superpower

Being able to KO quite a few NFES, Piloswine can take its Bulk and attack to the fullest. Ice Sharda KOS every Dragon out there beesides Shelgon with LO. With CB it can damenge everything in NFE severly. EQ does large amounts to Rhydon, Superpower KOS Munchlax and Chansey, while also doing a very large amount to P2. Stone Edge is used mainly for Togetic which is a very large threat for many special attackers. Taking advantege of its lower defence makes it fantastic for this job. Although there are some threats to this set. 1 being Scarfed Larion, although not common in ubers, it can take Ice Shard and KO back with Iron Tail, EQ, or even Head Smash if it has lower HP. This makes something like Gabite or ShucaTang a decent counter. Although both suffer very large amounts from Head Smash even though they resist it, they are worth it. Anouther threat is Monferno and Bronzor. As Bronzor can survive Superpower and set up screens. While Monferno resists Ice Shard and can KO with Fire Blast. Poliwhirl can beat Monferno while something like Specs Magmar or ScarfBite can beat Bronzor. The only problum is if it has levitate or heatproof. All and all Piloswine can damenge most ubers for a hard hit. Hitting Scyther with Ice Shard that deals a very large amount. Making Piloswine a perfect counter to some common NFE threats.

RP Larion is very threating due to its good attack and defences. First of, a Jolly Nature with 196 SPED outruns max speed Sneasel after a single Rock Polish. Making this slightly more suitable if you don't have a reliable counter that can always work. Larion also works as a great Outrage fodder. As 316 DEF can shurg that off while it can RP and KO. Iron tail may not have good accuerecy, but its the best move it has against Rhydon, Graveler, Nosepass, and Machoke. Althought Adamant must be used to take these Pokes down. So, make sure you get enough RPS up when you get the chance. Head Smash completly kills Togetic, Chansey, and Munchlax(2HKOs Munchlax) when using Adamant. Larions biggest threats are without RP. Like Magmar as it can KO with Focus Blast, same as Electabuzz. MixNair can do a hefty amount with Surf, or KOing it, while ScarfBite proves a problum RP or not as it can outrun it after RP. EQ still KOS. ShucaTang also proves problums. This is why it has to have the right team members. Some good teammates are ScarfBite and Sneasel. Outrage KOS Dragonair while EQ for Metang. Although Shuca is annoying. Sneasel can KO Dragonair and Electabuzz although they don't like switching in. Anouther option is NP Togetic, although T-bolt from Electabuzz can hurt, it can take quite a bit of a beating. Specs Togetic may also work. Although, its not the worlds best counter. So, you simply must find hat fits your team. As not all of them will be on one team. If these Pokemon are erased Larion can have an quite easy time to sweep.

Shadow Ball
Energy Ball
Hidden Power[Fighting]/Hidden Power[Ice]
Sludge Bomb/Psychic

A fantastic scarfer and partner with Larion due to meing immune to Fighting and Ground. Having good SP.ATK is fantastic bonus coupled with good speed. Now being able to KO Kadabrainstead of them KOing you. Sludge Bomb is more of a filler. Although it helps against stray grass types that are encountered once and awhile. Energy Ball helps VS things like Rhydon and sometimes Marshtomp or Poliwhirl. While the decision between HP Ice or Fighting depends on your other coveredge. HP Fighting helps vs Larion while HP Ice helps VS Gabite, Shelgon, and Dragonair. Shadow Ball is for obvious reasons. This Pokemons threats are pretty common, so you should have a counter to them anyway. Sneasel is the main one. As Pursuit takes out haunter easily. So, something like Metang to counter Sneasel in adavnce is helpful. Second, Togetic can counter due to its massive SP.DEF and the part that Haunter can't hit it with a strong SE effective move. NP Togetic turns Haunter into set up bait. A good teamate is RP Larion. If it gets RP up on a poke that can't hurt it Sneasel is finsihed, however Jolly 196 speed EVS must be used to outspeed Sneasel. Although they aren't to commonly seen together, meaing using Metang could solve this. As Sneasel can't harm Metang outside of CB Faint Attack. So, the key to using Haunter is covering up its weaknesses to make it effective. This is the most vital key to any team, along with its rate of success. The fact is though, not every Sneasel has Pursuit. Some chose Faint Attack. So, its may not always be what you think. This is anouther reason HP Figthing can be useful. If you think Sneasel is coming, blast it off. Just remember, cover up its weaknesses to make it as effective as it always was in OU. Thats the key.

@Life Orb
X-Scissor
Hidden Power[Ice]
Dig
Energy Ball

Just like in OU NFE, Grovyle can still put up quite a fight. First off, X-Scissor is for foe Grass or Psychic types it encounters. HP Ice is for Dragons of NFE, like Dragonair and Shelgon. Dig covers Monfero and Magmar, which are two quite annoying Pokemon. Lastly, Energy Ball is for STAB, as it KOS Rhydon, Marshtomp, and does a huge amount to Poliwhirl. However, its counters are sadly some of the most common. Sneasel, Kadabra, Diglett, and Machole. Although Diglett may not be common at the most, Aerial Ace and Sucker Punch can prove problums. Along with a predicted Dig it can KO with a boosted EQ. Machoke only suffers Netrual at all of its attacks, while KOing back with Dynamic Punch and can finish with BP. Sneasel can KO with Ice Punch. While Kadabra KOs with Singal Beam or Psychic. To help against all these threats you need a few answers. SD Scyther is one of them. As after SD Quick Attack can do a large amount to Kadabra and Scyther can outrun and KO Diglett, although it must look out for Sucker Punch. Machoke gets KO'd by Aerial Ace, which means, Sneasel isi only left. Ice Punch or Ice Shard do a large amount. Metang can also work. Although it is weaker vs Machoke and Diglett slighly, (BP does larger number on Diglett though, it can muster a KO sometimes as well if low enough HP.). So, it can also prove to be helpful. Having anouther helper supporting this one is also a good option. So, in just Grovyle takes care of its job well, to pick off and sweep weakened members of your opponents team.

Nasty Plot
Air Slash
Heat Wave/Sludge Bomb
Hidden Power[Water]/Roost

Although it can be used as a lead, in Ubers, it is more favorable as a sweeper. Roost can be used over HP Water, although then Rhydon can pretty much kill you. So, if you sren't running HP Water, make sure you have a counter to Rhydon. Sludge Bomb or Heat Wave depends, although Sludge Bomb has STAB and can also be affective against Water types more than Heat Wave, it can hit Steel and Ice types, something Sludge Bomb can't quite do. While Air Slash is for STAB and taking out Machoke as it 4X resists Dynamic Punch. Golbats main counters happen to be common, and quite a few. Kadabra, Electabuzz, Sneasel, Magmar, Rhydon(Only if no HP Water), and ScarfBite. As all can land a super effective hit on it. Since there are so many threats they each require a counter. Sneasel works as a decent counter for all of them besides Magmar. However, LO must be used. Anouther Sneasel breaking the speed tie is also another threat, plus having Rhydon not be KO'd by Ice Punch is a pain, well, as it never will even wih Cband. Having a ScarfBite of your own works against most of these. Only fearing Ice Shard from Sneasel, and ScarfBite speed tie, along with Rhydons good bulk. As EQ KOs everyone else. Although, all of these pokes will never be seen together due to horrible synergy. So, you only really ahve to worry about 2 per team at most. So, if you can cover Golbats weaknesses, then you got one powerful sweeper in your hands.

Solar Beam
Ancient Power
Hidden Power[Fire]
Shock Wave

This set is made for Sunny Day teams. When under sun it can be devastating. First off, a 120 base power 100% accurecy powered move KOs a large area of pokemon. Marshtomp and Rhydon don't stand a chance. HP Fire is for steel types like Metang and Bronzor with levitate. When coupled with sun it is completly devistating to anything weak to it. Shock Wave is for water types like Mantyke or other water types. Ancient Power is for Magmar and Charmeleon that can't be hit quite good by anything else. Its biggest threats are Magmar, Shelgon, and Grovyle. Scarf Magmar KOS Tangela with Fire Blast or Flamethower, Shelgon only fears HP Ice which is not on this set and can do a large amount with Fire Fang is Sunny Day is up, or DD. While Grovyle outspeeds if Sun is not up and can use HP Ice or X-Scissor. The best partner for covering these threats is LO Sneasel. Although Magmar may seem to counter it, Scarf sets are rare. Ice Punch for Shelgon and Grovyle, while Faint Attack hits Magmar for a good amount. A second helper is Munchlax. Due to Thick Fat it can take Fire Blast, even when Sunny Day is up due to its HP and SP.DEF. It can curse up and when Magmar swithches back in for a Focus Blast or something Body Slam can do a very hefty amount. It also has Rest so it can recover. This makes it a very good counter also. In conclusion this Tangela is meant for Sunny Day teams. Which is prbubly the best set of all.

Nasty Plot
Hidden Power[Flying]
Water Pulse/Shadow Ball
Roost/Fire Blast

Although many people only see the use in stall, sweeper Togetic is one of the most hard pokemon to get rid of. Due to its monster defences, and Nasty Plot at its side it turns into a extreme threat no doubt if it sets up. The only bad thing about Togetic is that it misses Air Slash, so it has HP Flying instead. Now, begins with the decisions. Shadow Ball or Water Pulse depends on your already defences against vs there pokes, for example, if you have Sneasel for Kadabra and Haunter, you would probubly pick water pulse for Magmar and Monferno, which Togetic can decently handle, or if Rhydon or Gligar cause you problums. Fire Blast is for Metang or any other Grass types that come in. If you don't want Roost use Fire Blast for more attacking power. Togetics main counters are Sneasel, Mainly CB versions as they can OHKO you with Ice Punch. Also, Scarf Rhydon can harm you as well along with Scarf Larion as well (Water Pulse versions handle Larion better than ones without it. So, it could be a better choice in some cases.). To rememdy this, Scarf Poliwhirl is perfect. As STAB Water fall can handle Rhydon, while Brick Brake for Sneasel and weakened Larion, unless there non-scarf and Togetic has NP up with Water Pulse (this goes same for some Rhydon). So, in just, Togetic can be very troublesome if paired right with the rest of its team along with covering its weaknesses. This, is the fact why Togetic is hard to counter, its diverse movepool and ways to be supported make it extremely frustrating to take down.

@Choice Specs
Flamethower/Fire Blast
Psychic
Focus Blast
Hidden Power[Grass]

Although having Specs may seem like a waste it has extreme power. First of, Flamethower or Fire Blast depends on accuercy over power. Although they KO the same things mostly. Psychic is for Machoke which is quite common in ubers. It gets OHKO'd by Psychic without much trouble. Focus Blast for Munchlaz or P2. HP Grass is for Marshtomp or Rhydon which can be seen in ubers. The best counters for Magmar are probubly Poliwhirl, Marshtomp, and Diglett (or Dragons in some areas, but Fire Blast does 62% to Dragonair as an estimate.). As ScarfWhirl can KO with Waterfall, while Marshtomp can handle Fire Blast and KO with EQ. Diglett can KO with EQ if Magmar is not a scarfer set, which not to many are (although Diglett has large problums swithcing into Magmars attacks) . The best way to handle these threats is prediction, and partly Togetic. As Togetics Bulk is vital. a NP set can also work. As it outspeeds Marshtomp and can deliver a huge amount with HP Flying after NP. Poliwhirl can't threaten Togetic too much unless Rain is up supporting Waterfall. For Diglett Stone Edge is the only thing it fears. Anouther Pokemon that could work is Dusclops, as WoW makes all these Pokemon inaffective. So, that may also be an option. It can also help VS Machoke, only fearing Payback, which, has 50 base power as Machoke outspeeds it. So, Dusclops is also a very good partner. Something to be considered. Overall Magmar is very hard to counter. Many things have trouble switching into it. As its great SP.ATK is supporting it all the way.

Dragon Dance
Waterfall
Ice Punch
Superpower

A Bulky Dancer like the Shelgon set, only without being weak to Dragon and Ice. It's most useful to pair it with Reflect and Light Screen so it can get about 2 DDS up, then sweep. These speed EVs let it outrun max speed Kadabra and Electabuzz which are quite annoying. Ice Punch is used for covering Dragons and other Grass types. Superpower is for Porygon2 which is something that can threaten this set with its massive HP and Defence, and Thunder Wave you and then heal. It can then finish you with Tri-Attack. Waterfall is a nice STAB attack. Croconaws biggest threats lie before DD, some after however to. They are Electabuzz, Kadabra, Haunter, Grovyle, Magnaton, Pikachu, Sneasel, and in some cases, Tangela. All can threaten with a Super Effective move. Sneasel is very notable when using CB and Faint Attack as it does quite a bit. Although if it has Pursuit or LO, or even has screens up it isn't the very best counter. While Electabuzz and Kadabra along with all the others slam it with a Super Effective move which most have STAB with. Although not more than 1 or even 2 will be on a team most of the time (3 at most is pretty much the highest number). A decent counter to most of these is LO Sneasel. Ice Punch KOS Grovyle does a good amount to Pikachu and hits Tangela for a good amount. Magnaton gets slammed with Brick Brake which sadly is never going to KO so it should have some support beforehand. While Kadabra and Haunter fall to Pursuit or Faint Attack. So, it does make a pretty good partner in some cases. In just use the right support for this Pokemon. This includes Screens and coveredge to make it more succesful.

Sword Dance
Earthquake
Stone Edge/Rock Slide
Night Slash

Gligar is something that can sweep teams once Kadabra and Sneasel along with any other strong special attacker. After Sword Dance Gligar can damenge a huge amount of the metagame. EQ is a good STAB move that does a good amount to half the metagame. Stone Edge is for stuff like Togetic which are very bulky, so be sure to get a SD up before you take them on. Night Slash is for any Psychic type that pops up, although they pretty much all of them. Gligars biggest counters are not always the most common. Mainly Sneasel, Poliwhirl, and Marshtomp or a strong special attacker like Specs Magmar. To help against these threats theres a few solution. SubTon with HP Grass can KO Sneasel Marshtomp and Poliwhirl with T-Bolt and HP Grass. Specs Magmar can be taken out by T-Bolt if it has a charge beam boost supporting it. Electabuzz with HP Ice is also something to look out for. Something like Sneasel or Scarf Magmar can take out Electabuzz with a STAB attack. So, mainly Sneasel is the most common threat of all. It can be handeled by Metang also. As Faint Attack is the only move it fears. If it is below 60% BP can KO it making it less of a threat. Now, Gligar does have a pretty decent size weakness area although most of these Pokemon aren't really common besides Sneasel. So, if your going to stress about any of these Sneasel is that one. As if your not prepared a banded Ice Punch can badly damenge anything that dosen't resist it. Making Gligar slightly harder to use.


Adamant
16 HP/ 252 ATK/ 136 DEF/ 104 SPED
@Choice Scarf
Waterfall
Ice Punch
Brick Brake
Earthquake

One of the best Anti-Priorty users in NFE, it makes most Pokemon feel a sligth threat. Although not a "sweeper" by look, it still can pack sweeping power. As it absorbs Aqua Jets, takes nothing from BP and Ice Shard due its good bulk, and can take an uncommon later game Mach Punch from Monferno. EQ is for Larion, Metang, and Magnaton which are quite common in ubers. Ice Punch takes care of the dragons like the common Mix-Nair(as it can switch in on Surf. So having something weak to Water is a good pair). While Brick Brake is for Sneasel which is one of the most common sights in Ubers. Poliwhirls biggest threats are mainly more Bulky Pokemon. Something like Tangela can take Ice Punch and strike back with STAB Energy Ball. If its under sun Poliwhirl is finished. Also something Bulky like Togetic takes nothing wrong Ice Punch after Roost. It can T-wave it and then hit it with Tri-Attack. A good counter is probubly Munchlax. Although something like SD Gligar seems better, Munchlax's massive HP and SP.DEF give it a good chance of survival against these special attackers, or walls. Something like Banded Swine may also work. As Ice Shard does a huge chunck. While Stone Edge does a massive amount to Togetic. Both counters can work, but Munclax is slightly perfered. So, in just Poliwhirl is a solid Priorty abuser as it can take most priorty moves with ease. This alone makes it a solid canidate for any team that does have problums with this.

Stone Edge
Fire Punch

Rock Polish

With it's massive attack and powerful moves, Crainidos finds it's way in the ubers metagame, along with it's ability Rock Polish. Although it dosen't have to many areas it can set up in, and it's weak defences also bringing it down, once it's up, get ready to face some of the strongest power in NFE. First off, after RP it has 430 speed. Outrunning anything slower than max speed Gabite. It also has the "QuakeSlide" combo. Although it uses Stone Edge. Stone Edge is a very powerful STAB attack. With LO in hand, it can handle things like Togetic without very much trouble. Which means it can bring this threat down if RP gets up, or alone without it. EQ takes care of Larion, Magnaton, and Metang in some cases. While Fire Punch is for Bronzor which walls this set with levitate otherwise. Although put aside it's fantastic attacking power and you have low defences. As it gets worn down not to quickly and the extreme commoness of CB Sneasel and Metang, its in for some trouble. Machoke also makes Cranidos look weak as it has good HP, defences, and has acess to Priorty. Marshtomps good defences mean it can take EQ and KO back. To counter these threats, something like a SubOffenceChoke could work. As under Sub it can induce confusion. A Poliwhirl partner to absorb priorty attacks is also an option, although it really only counters Sneasel. Either way though Craindos is still a sound threat to any team. Just make sure you use it right.

Waterfall
Earthquake
Ice Punch
Return

The main sweeper set for Marshtomp, and the most common. Although it seems outclassed by the Curse set which sets up on something like Metang and do a dent to your team afterward, you can never set up easy in ubers without having a common resistence. Haunter or Kadabra can KO CurseTomp with Energy Ball without much of a problum unless they switch in when it attacks with Waterfall. Second, CurseTomp lacks immedite power. No Kadabra or even Haunter would switch in unless Haunter is sure EQ is coming. Now onto the set. CBTomp can devistate teams that aren't prepared. STAB Waterfall does a huge amount to alot of the fragile Pokemon in ubers. Ice Punch KOs most Dragons in NFE for the exception of Shelgon. EQ is a powerful STAB option. Any Poke that doesn't resist or is not affeted by it is going to take a beating. While Return is mainly a filler move as it can't get Stone Edge. Although Marshtomp seems hard to switch into, it has counters. First off, Haunter can come in on EQ and threaten with Energy Ball. Croconaw can come in on Ice Punch and DD (if under screens it take almost nothing). A bulky grass like Grotle can come in on Waterfall or EQ and threaten Seed Bomb/Energy Ball, although Grotle is rare in ubers. Anouther threat is Scarf Tangela. As it can come in on Waterfall or EQ, and threaten Energy Ball. Infact, anything that has a strong move and a resistence hits it hard. For example, DDNair can come in on Waterfall and do alot with Outrage. To help against most of these threats, a Mixed Sweeper may be helpful. For example, MixNair can do a amount to all these threats. Although DDNair outspeeds. So, something like Sneasel may help you here. So, just have his bases covered, and you won't have to many problums when sweeping.

Thunderbolt
Singal Beam
Hidden Power[Grass]/Hidden Power[Ice]
Surf

Special Pika is a decent sweeper in ubers when coupled with Surf. It turns into a decent counter to Larion, although not very favorable. T-bolt is it's main STAB attack. It hits anyhting for a decent amount at least. Second, Singal Beam, is for Grass Types or anything it can hit for reagular damenge mainly. The chance of confusion is also good. HP Grass or Ice is an easy choice most of the time. HP Ice is more favorable. HP Grass is only used for Marshtomp, which is though a big threat to this set. Lastly Surf is for things like Larion, Rhydon, and other ground and rock types. Although Pikachu seems like a fantastice sweeper, it has flaws. Due to its low defences, anything that outspeeds and can land a strong STAB attack on it (that it dosen't resist) can do a boat load of damenge. Somehting like a Magmar's Fire Blast is an example. KOing Pika. It can come in on HP Ice or Singal Beam. Sneasel can also take Pika out with Ice Punch. Coming in on HP Ice. LO Haunter adds to the list. So pretty much most faster strong sweepers put a dent in Pika. Something that can support it well also works good. ScreenTang works, although dosen't cover its weaknesses very well. Something like Togetic would work well as a partner. It covers it weaknesses along with Haunter and partly Magmar. Sneasel still gives it trouble, thats where Metang comes in. Having SR with Pika is required. Wearing down these threats to the point where they can be killed off it good. Sneasel and Magmar die fast if they switch to much. So, that coupled with a conjuntion of these Pokemon work very well.

@Petaya Berry
Surf
Ice Beam
Substitute
Agility

The only UU Pokemon in ubers, Primplup is one of the strongest Pokes in ubers when played correctly. First off, Agility raises it's speed to very high levels. The goal is to get 2 Agilitys to outrun some faster scarfers. Then, get to low enough health to activate Petaya Berry, raising Special attack and then Torrent putting Surf at monsterous levels. While Ice Beam is for Dragons that reist Surf. Sub is used to lower health to that point or get anouther Agility up while it's at it. This set can sweep teams compeltly when used right. Priorty or fast Scarfers are the bets counter. This is why getting 2 Agilitys is key in some cases. Primplups counters are few when Agility is up. Scarf Haunter is one of those. It can smash with T-Bolt for a KO when it's at low HP. Dragonair can hit with Extreme Speed if it's helth is low enough. While things like Munchlax or Chansey can work with there very high Special Defence. However, the most notable is Poliwhirl. Taking nothing from any of it's attacks. Walling it completly unless you carry HP Electric. Although Chansey more as it always breaks subs an has reliable recovery. To help against these, Sneasel can be used. Brick Brake/Pursuit/Ice Punch beats these guys. LO for this one. A more defencive Electabuzz for Poliwhirl may work. A Bulky Grass type like Grotle also helps. An alternitave is Timid as it can outrun more things than Modest. Although it looses some power. So, Primplup is very viable in ubers. Just use the moevs at the right time.

@DeepSeaTooth
Surf/Muddy Water
Hidden Power[Figthing]
Ice Beam
Substitute

Having decent bulky + x2 SP.ATK from DeepSeaTooth makes a very threating Pokemon in ubers. This set is uber exclusive, only being able to use it in ubers means there must be something special. To start off, Surf/Muddy Water is a hard choice. Muddy Water has 15% less accurecy, while has a 30% chance that the opponents accurecy will drop. Surf, never misses but can't make the foes accurecy drop. HP Figthing is for things like Porygon2, Vigoroth, and Chansey(although not as hard) for decent damenge. Ice Beam is for things like Dragonair, Shelgon, and Gabite(for these under sub for the most part). Lastly, Substitute can get a free hit along with no status affects on Clampearl. It is more suitable to use on a switch so it dosen't suffer any hits. 68 SPED is used to outrun Neutral-natured, 0 Spd Rhydon while then it can KO with Surf or Muddy Water. Sadly Clampearl has a large amount of threats. Although it invested heavy with HP and SP.DEF, a T-Bolt from Pikachu, Electabuzz, and Magnaton all can handle Clampearl with a KO. They can come in on somehting like HP Fighting as it can never to a huge amount. Chansey can completly kill Clampearl, not taking much from HP Fighting. While, Haunter can come in on HP Figthing if predicted right and hit with T-Bolt hard. So, one of the decent partners is Sneasel. Although it can't completly handle these threats completly, it can still do an ok job. Hitting Buzz, Pika, and Huanter with Pursuit, Ice Punch, and Brick Brake combo. LO Sneasel is pefered for this job for move swithcing. Something like Chansey as a partner may also help. Although you must look out for Cross Chop Electabuzz. This can work as a sound threat for these Special Attackers. Chansey can also pass Wish-Support to Clampearl. This helps it alot with HP recovery. Having entry hazerds also helps Clampearl getting higher damenge to threats. So, having priorty with Clampearl isn't bad either. So, if you want a strong special sweeper, you got Clampearl at your door waiting. When used right with Sub + 3 Attacks combo, it can turn into a sound staple for most teams in ubers.


Jolly/Adamant
252 ATK/ 252 SPED/ 6 HP
@Life Orb
Sword Dance
Quick Attack
Night Slash
Aerial Ace

Without any doubt, the most powerful sweeper in NFE. With SD and LO under it's belt there is almost nothing that can even hope to stop it besides being worn down my rocks, (a 2HKO making it much less a threat. However, not all uber team carry rocks) and defencive Dusclops to survive Night Slash and live with not much health left to be useful. Also the great ability technician makes it even more fomidable. To find out how much its power is after Technician we must do some math: (60 × 1.5) + (60 × 1.5)
That gives it a total power of 180! That is more powerful than a stabbed 100 base power attack. Combined with the fact that Scyther's base attack is very high, you can deal incredible damage especially when combined with a Life Orb. Life Orb further boosts the power by 1.3. That gives us a grand total of 234 power. This makes Scyther one of the most deadly Pokemon out there. After SD, theres no turning back. With the first move done, lets go to the next. Quick Attack is also very powerful after Technicain. It can be used to kill things like Kadabra or things like weakened Electabuzz. After SD Buzz dosen't have to be weakened as much, Kadabra just forget about along with other thinsg like Magmar. It's last move, Night Slash is for Dusclops and LO Haunter who tend to switch in. The nature thing is more power, or more speed. Both do a huge amount after SD, but Adamant comes out on top. Alhtough speed has it's advanteges of tieing with things like Electabuzz that you can't KO with Quick Attack alone. So, its up to what suits you more. It's counter Varry. Most can't switch into Scyther without being KO'd or badly damenged. The most notable are Metang and Larion. Only suffering neutral from a no STAB Night Slash or resiting it all. It can hit back with Meteor Mash or Head Smash for. payback. Something like Scarf Haunter swithcing in on QA can hit back with T-Bolt for a Super Effective hit. Abusing Scythers lower defences ( Sneasel can also use Ice Shard athough is not safe swithching into any of it's moves besides Night Slash). Although there is one counter that stands above the others. That is, Stealth Rock. Denting 50% in Scyther when it switches in dampens it's sweeping capibilites. Coupled with LO wearing it down even more makes it worse. Since there aren't any reliable Spinners in NFE, somehting like a Taunt Lead is a good decision. 252 SPED Jolly Taunt Gliscor is a fantastic choice. It can Taunt and KO most leads besides Sneasel and Scyther partly. You can set up your on SR this way. For Scarf Haunter and Metang a Magmar is viable. Being able to live Shadow Ball and hit Metang and Haunter with Psychic and Fire Blast is good. You could do a Magmar + Sneasel conjuntion as Sneasel Pursuits Haunter and Magmar Fire Blasts Metang. These two are often used together. So be ready to take on both. All and all though Scyther can sweep entire teams if your opponent is not ready. Having a Taunting lead and eeentry support is very helpful. So, NFE players be ware. As if you are not prepared, prepare to trmble at the might of Scyther.

Body Slam
Thunder Punch
Fire Punch
Ice Punch

Although this set seems completly outclassed by Curelax, there aren't many Pokemon that enjoy a strong STAB move that has high change to Paralyze. The CurseLax version can be beat by Machoke most of the time as they switch in and deal a large amount with Dynamic Punch. CurseLax needs to set up to be effective while this set poses immediate power from the start. The elemental Punches are for the best coveredge possible. Ice Punch for Dragons, Fire Punch for steels, grass, and bugs. While T-Punch for water and flying types. This set still can be beat. As if predicted around it could switch alot. Damenging it with entry hazerds. Machoke is bulky enough to take on the Punches and KO back with Dynamic Punch. Something like CB Sneasel can also hurt with a Brick Brake. Although SR and Ice Punch will still do a large amount. Something like Larion or Rhydon can come in and set up Rock Polish or smash anything with a Band or Scarf Head Smash or Stone Edge. To help against these threats something like Dusclops may work for Machoke. Or even ShucaTang for Larion. Other threats include strong special attackers like LO Buzz with Focus Blast or Cross Chop. Besides these strong Psycical walls Munchlax must be used wiht prediction to be used right. It could be worn down easily. It isn't the easiest Pokemon to use. But be warned, in exsperienced hands it can end matches quickly with the use of one move.

Vigoroth is very underestamated. Most people think of it as a mediocre sweeper that nobody really uses. So, using this may scramble yoru opponent to find out what set your running. Vigoroths decent defences give it some help in the background check. Now lets get down to movest. LO or CB depends on more power or switching moves. Sucker Punch is fantastic for LO. Night Slash is also ok for CB. Although, Sucker Punch is the main choice. Sucker Punch is good for things like Kadabra, Electabuzz, Magmar, Haunter, or anything else faster. Most of NFEs threats are weaker so Sucker Punch can handle them with the power boost from Life Orb. Return is a good STAB attack for things just in general. While EQ takes out things like Larion, Metang, and Rhydon or Bronzor with Heatproof. Ice Punch is for Dragons like Dragonair and Shelgon which are common in uber NFE. Now, although Vigoroth may seem very strong to you now, it's time to list it's threats. They are mainly from predicting wronng with Sucker Punch. Giving it the ability to Recover or set up. Dusclops is a very good counter as it can WoW avoiding Sucker Punch. Sneasel can also handle as it dosen't take much from Sucker Punch and can hit with Brick Brake. ScarfChoke also handles Vigoroth as it KOS with Dynamic Punch. To help VS this problums a number of solutions can be used in diffrent cases. Kadabra is decent to Machoke only suffering the worse from BP. Scyther is also ok as Night Slash does a number on Dusclops. For Sneasel, Metang can be used for the job. So as you can see, the helpers varry. Vigoroth is a very good surpirse Pokemon as it is not seen often. So, it can work in many diffrent ways for a team. Hopefully, it can find a way into yours.


Modest/Timid
252 SP.ATK/ 252 SPED/ 6 DEF
@Choice Scarf
Thunderbolt
Hidden Power[Ice]/Hidden Power[Grass]
Flash Cannon/Singal Beam
Explousion

Magnaton is one of this Metagame most useful revenge killers. Although ti may not appear to be. It has more speed than Magnazone with Scarf so it can prove even more useful. Modest give sit 358 speed and 372 special attack. With Timid, it the same thing only with more and less special attack. Magnaton can also be used as a Sneasel counter when Timid. Modest is mainly for anything aside from Sneasel counetering. It's massive special attack means Metang, Magmar, and almost all other NFEs that aren't named Chansey and resist it are going down in 2 hits. Anyway, down to the set. HP Ice or HP Grass is for either Dragons, or Ground and Rock Pokemon. If you choose HP Ice, Flash Cannon is more reccomended. If Grass, Singal Beam as it hits Grass for super effective. Or, you could just use Flash Cannon due to STAB and more power. It's last move, Explousion, is more of a last ditch attempt. Magnaton is not without counters though. All moves besides Explousion do nothing to Chansey. Marshtomp can come in on T-bolt and hit with EQ. Modest ones get hurt badly by Sneasels Brick Brake. Gligar and Rhydon can set up on it as well. Although Rhydon more as most have RP. Infact, things that are immune to Electric damenge it. Or, anything with very high SP.DEF and HP. Like Chansey and Munchlax. To help against there threats, something simple can be done. LO Buzz can work quite well for all counters aside from Sneasel. Even so, if enough HP or defence EVS are used it can live Ice Punch. Cross Chop must be used for Munchlax and Chansey. While HP Grass is for Rhydon and Marshtomp. So it could make a decent counter and helper. Machoke can also work with it's passable defences and STAB Dynamic Punch. The onyl problum is they have a problum switching iin what there going to use. So, Haunter can work with most. It can learn Energy Ball. Something that can take out Marshtomp and Rhydon. Still though, Magneton is very helpful on quite a few teams that need a powerful revenge killer. So, maybe Magneton might just work for you.


Sweepers Wrap Up
This is the end for full-fledged sweepers. There are quite a few of these Pokemon that fit into the next catagory though. That means we aren't exactly done here yet. We still more to cover on the aspect. So, that means we aren't going to see things like here, we're going to see things that are slightly more leaned toward to defencive side. This means were going after....


Bulky Sweepers


Impish
252 ATK/ 252 HP/ 6 DEF
@Leftovers
Focus Punch
Substitute
Will-o-Wisp
Shadow Sneak/Night Shade/Rock Slide

Dusclops can be nearly impossible to take down with Sub. Due to this sets good attcking power and defences, previous counters may think twice before switching in. This is something the wall set lacks. For instance, if it is using SS Haunter and Kadabra become much less troublesome. While if you have Rock Slide, Scyther becomes a even less of a problum. Night Shade is good base power move as most NFEs have little HP. Now, onto the center of the set. WoW is great under Sub if it's facing something like Sneasel. This is a very good reason why you should have Sub up whenever you get the chance. Focus Punch is the main premise of this set. Under Sub it's free to use it. This set has fewer counters depending on it's second move. If it uses SS then Scyther may be more problemanic. Same if you use Rock Slide in reverse. Nigth Shade is in the middle. It can be used or not. Always dealing 100 damenge. So, Dusclops is a support/Bulky Offence Pokemon for this set. It is one of the very best Pokemon to use in ubers for a stronger defencive team.


Impish
196 HP/ 252 ATK/ 4 DEF/ 56 SP.DEF
@Leftovers
Dynamic Punch
Payback
Rest
Sleep Talk

Most commonly overlooked for the offencive Sub and Choice Scarf set, RestTalk Choke can take hits much better than Offencive sets. Although it may not have an "all out" appearence that can sweep teams, it's still a very reasonable team member. RestTalk Machoke is one of the best counters to Larion. It can take Head Smash and OHKO back with STAB Dynamic Punch. Dynamic Punch also can dent severe holes in teams. Confusion + a powerful STAB move means this set will give any team trouble. However, if a Ghost liek Haunter comes in, Payback takes it out while it takes little from Shadow Ball due to high HP and SP.DEF. However, Machoke is not without counters. Kadabra is it's main counter OHKOing with Psychic. If it is at low HP some Haunter that have Psychic can cause trouble. Hard hitting moves like Draco Meteor and Outrage can deal large amount to Machoke. Mainly Draco Meteor due to it's lower SP.DEF side. However, these troubles can eaily be helped with one Poke. Sneasel. It takes out Kadabra and handles Dragosn to. However, Metang is also very favorable. Even more than Sneasel. Resisting Dragon, it can take Outrages and Draco Meteors along with Psychic. Making it a good teamate. So, if your looking for some bulk and offence, Machoke may be the right canidate for you.


Impish
96 HP/ 120 ATK/ 194 DEF/ 96 Sp.DEF/ 4 SPED
@Leftovers
Dragon Dance
Dragon Claw
Double Edge
Brick Brake/Crunch

While this set doesn't provide a more immediate threat than the previous one, it takes advantage of Shelgon's passable defenses, and gives you more of an opportunity to set up 2 or 3 Dragon Dances, giving you higher Attack and Speed than the standard 252 Atk / 252 Spd variant would. As with the previous set, the choice of Brick Break or Crunch is measured on how much you fear Lairon or Porygon2, although Crunch does provide an answer to Ghost-types, however, Dusclops can easily cripple this set so it's not wise to try to take it on. 4 Speed allows you to outpace neutral-natured, 0 Speed Lombre, Metang and Prinplup, giving you a chance to set-up a Dragon Dance. After a Dragon Dance, Shelgon outpaces anything slower than a max Speed Totodile. A switch to 12 Speed EVs will allow you to outspeed a max Speed Machoke, Flaffy and Seel, although both are fairly uncommon in Ubers. This sets main problum is strong psycical walls. P2 cna cripple this set with T-Wave + Ice Beam. While it can heal with recover. Larion can wall this set when lacking Brick Brake. While Dusclops gives this set exstensive problums as it can take even Crunch fairly easy. Piloswine and Sneasel can also damenge him with strong Ice attack. Using ShucaTang can cover many of these problums as it can beat Sneasel and Pilo. Along with Exploding on P2 is need to. Dusclops is best handled by constant hammering. While using CB Sneasel can punish Dusclops very hard. Overall Shellgon has little toruble setting up thanks to it's bulk. However, it has little speed and power so be wary.

Bulky Sweepers Rap Up
Although Magmar, and Marshtomp can both fit in bulky sweepers along with others, those take a more complete bashing offencive approach. This concludes this area of the guide. I hope you enjoyed it.




Team Building In Ubers NFE

Team building in ubers is diffrent than OU. Stall is much more possible with the new bulky sweepers of ubers. Dusclops, Chansey, and Porygon2 all are fantastic canidates. In this section we will learn about each style of play and how you can use it.

Offence

Offence is the premeir style of uber NFE. Pokemon like Machoke and Sneasel are both huge threats in the metagame. CB Larion's head Smash can take down even the most dedicated walls. Mix Sweepers like Monferno are much more used as for one, it can take down Chansey with CC along with dealing very heavy damenge to P2. Dusclops also takes a very large chunk from Fire Blast. Which makes Monferno a great Poke for a team that has trouble with stall. Along with fitting the offencive tempo. Machoke also can break almost every wall in Ubers besides Dusclops. Also it tears apart fragile offencive teams. When making offencive teams, using a base Pokemon is always a good start. As you can think about what certein counters to destroy. Making a much more solid team. Offencive teams relie on resistences and the ability to switch in safely. Which means offencive teams can often have trouble with stall. As suggested above, Machoke and Monferno make fantastic stall breakers. A great offencive starter is Machoke. It already makes a good sweeper. With proper support it can devistate teams even more. T-Wave Support from the likes of Chansey and Togetic can cripple fast sweepers so Machoke can set up a sweep. However, there are many other sweeprs available. Try them out and you may just make a solid team.


Stall

Stall is much more possible in Uber NFE. Dusclops and Chansey are a very potent dual as they wall most of the game. Add in some entry hazards and you got a stall team. Stall can take on almost every style of play. However, things like Mix-Ferno can take on most stall teams. However, Dusclops and Tentacool can handle it in some cases. Although, they can have some difficulties. Using ScreenTang can soften any hit a team throws at stall. Although, there are some Pokemon that no matter how sturdy your core is, they will always give you a little trouble. One of these is SpecsMar. When coupled with entry hazards means it can very well 2HKO almost every member. Even Chansey. This is why you should Ligth Screen the first turn when you get him out. Just incase as Metang is more vulnarable to special attacks. A common and good core to use is Dusclops/Chansey/Tentacool/Gligar. Gligar can really help patch up a Monferno weakness. Meaning it is a decent member on stall. Also setting up SR is great. This core takes most offencive threats. Meaning it could be a good starter. Using a Roselia lead with Spikes can work greatly vs the slower leads. Or, you could use it as a core member. This is one a the good ways to start stall. Then you can change it however way you want. Just remember, the goal of stall is to phaze and switch around enemy Pokemon to rack up residual damenge. Or use Status or strong base moves to take out the weakened Pokes.


Bulky Offence

Bulky Offence, unlike full offence, uses more Bulky Pokemon. Along the lines of Sub Punch Punch Dusclops. Both are bulky and can damenge well with the use of Focus Punch and a powerful STAB Dynamic Punch. Good teamates for these Pokes are Bulky CB Pursuit Metang. Which can pursuit Specs Haunter, Kadabra, and damenge most Pokes with a punishing Meteor Mash. Spikes and Stealth Rock help a little with dealing more damenge to switchins. Magmar and Electabuzz also are good canidates for for bulky offence. Rhydon is also considerably Bulky so it works quite often for it. These are all good canidates for Bulky Offence. Magmar and Electabuzz offencive pair packs a strong punch vs any team. Both dealing hard hitting attacks. However, the ground weakness might be a slight problum. Meaning maybe using Togetic can use Wish support to keep them alive longer. When building these types of teams you must remember to use a bulkier team base.

Get Out there!

The guide is over. Covering every concept possible. With all these guides, I hope you can make a great team with this information! Good Luck!
