Mega Gardevoir is always the best.

She may be a glass cannon, but with the right set up she can wreck your life.
She's also odd in the sense that if she's Passed a stat boost, she can survive many threats, overpower tons of walls, or outspeed any sweeper. So I guess she's a glass cannon not glass cannon. idk


Personally prefer this Garde:

Spoiler:
Gardevoir @ Gardevoirite
Ability: Trace
EVs: 24 DEF/ 232 SpA/ 252 Spe
Nature: Timid
-Hyper Voice
-Psyshock
-Shadow Ball
-Taunt


The defense investment make her able to survive Scarf Landorus-T's EQ, Mega Lop's Return, Mega Scizor's Bullet Punch (if passed at least a single Defense boost).

She outspeeds a ton of things naturally, and her Hyper Voice alone can OHKO many of the sweepers in the tier. Give her a Nasty Plot pass and there's rarely anything that can withstand her attacks.
"Oh, fantastic! What did you think? My team was pretty cool, right? It's a bit embarrassing to show off, but I love to show their best sides!"

I'd really have to Mega Lopunny. It's been by far the mega i've had the most success with. It's amazing power, solid moveset and blazing speed, make her a very formidable opponent for anyone. Capable of taking out 3-4 pokemon at a time with the right moveset.

I personally like my Mega Lopunny like this:

Mega Lopunny @ Lopunnite
Ability: Timber
EVs: 216Atk / 252 Def / 40 Spe
Nature: Jolly (Spe+ / SpA- )
Moves:
- Sky Uppercut
- Return
- Fire Punch
- Drain Punch

The Defense investment makes her much more likely to last at least two hits, which also Lopunny needs as with her stats and investment in Attack, is a guaranteed 2HKO without any resistances which is no problem given her moveset. Drain Punch esepcially comes in handy when stalling a bit and or hitting a fighting type vulnerable opponent.

This set has been very successful for me when it comes to this Pokemon and love using it.

Gonna go with Mega Sableye for reasons I elaborated on in the other thread. It has a specific role that's fun to take advantage of, and it's pretty versatile (support or sweeper).

Keldeo is so boring. You spam Scald until the opposing team is weakened. ;(

Just some advice:

Sky Uppercut isn't much stronger than Drain Punch. Wouldn't High Jump Kick be more effective for when you need a really strong move? And what does Fire Punch hit? Ice Punch seems more useful because it'd hit stuff like Gliscor. (edit: I suppose Fire Punch is good if your team is weak to Mega Scizor. Regular Scizor takes about 70% from HJK.) Max HP EVs would be more effective than max Def since it'd raise her low HP and help with SDef.

Honestly though, I'm not sure why you'd want a slow, defensive Lopunny when it's relatively fragile and resists very few types (thus, it can't switch in on much stuff). Something like Chesnaught would be far more effective in my opinion. Lopunny excels so much at outrunning lots of Pokemon and sweeping, so it seems like a waste. :(

Those are very fair points and i probably should change the EVs to something that will truly maximize my Lopunny, this was just one of my first teams before i knew much about competitive battling. That's why I made the investment in the Defense stat, since I didn't know any better and its ended up working surprisingly well as i detailed above. I will take some of your suggestions into consideration though. Except for the HJK, too high risk - high reward for me. I'm a little more conservative in my battle style lol

Again, I appreciate the advice

Mega Sableye all the way! x3 I know it's already on the pole, but I just love Mega Sableye so much. x3 It's just SO GOOD. Though, I will admit that I'm a bit uncertain of it's supportive capabilities as I have seen someone mention before. So if there is a support set, either message me about it or just reply. XD I'm curious to know.

Voted Tyranitar. It can be almost anything, be it tank, physical attacker, support, special attacker, mega, boosting sweeper, pursuit trapper, or even a combination.

It's one of those pokemon that are great despite a ton of weaknesses, and can make them hard to exploit with it's raw power. What would normally be considered good checks like bulky Azumarill take more than half damage on the switch in with unboosted hit (Obliterated if banded + sanded) from a stone edge. Landorus and Scizor as well as other pokemon give it problems so I never feel bored or that it's unfair.

Also, I agree with Skyburial that excadrill is OP. I even once had a sand team with both Tyranitar AND Hippowdonervice to service it and keep the sand flowing.

Honestly, I don't get the question. Most of us would pick these Pokemon out of the general roster. OU stands for "over used", and those Pokemon are over used because players generally like them. I suppose some UU Pokemon would be more popular, but Ubers violates the standard practice of Smogon tiers as Pokemon are put there not based on how often they are used but by vote to get it banned from general play.

Then there's the issue that learning someones favorite OU wouldn't teach you anything. You already know why people use these Pokemon. If you learned that my favorite is Crobat, wouldn't you be curious why? Yet it ain't in OU.

Basically, narrowing it down to Pokemon in Smogon's OU category really has no purpose. Sure, I'd love to know your favorites, but in general. Maybe narrow it down by type, but not ever changing rankings that are just a popularity contest.
Remember, losing is just a learning experience. Let's see what I have to teach you...
