    First, where does Thunderbolt come in handy on a singles Lapras?

    Second, I hope that Vanilluxe has Flame Orb. But wouldn't that reduce Façade's power since it is a physical move.

    Future sight is also a pretty bad move in today's metagame, as well, switching.

    Vanilluxe doesn't need nor want toxic orb as the only thing that benefits it is facade; Vanilluxe has a much better set in shift gear automonize.
    Ironically I have never seen thet SG/automize set

    just has Tbolt to take out a lot of those flying type leads like aerodactyl or staraptor.

    yes. that is why I have toxic orb. burn reduces physical attak power, negating the status problem boost from façade.

    Don't use Future sight, it's not worth the risk.
    Thunderbolt is only useful against waters. You have a more powerful Ice Beam for flying types.

    gyus, if you REALLY WANT TO SEE A TROLL TEAM IN UBERS THAT IS VIABLE, LOOK AT THIS. MADE BY PROBABLY THE BEST LC PLAYER. EVER.

    Yes, you heard me. LC in Ubers

    I used a similar team before. I sometimes use my riolu in Ubers, but it is harder to use in ubers because of all the E speed users in ubers, so i just use riolu in OU instead.

    I love this team <3

    IIRC, your win streak is, like, 100,000 W/ 1L since you lost to Will5iam yesterday.
    No one will beat you in the tourney.

    I don't know who I'm battling in the tourney. I don't really care.

    I've got to find 2 other team members for my Ubers team. Might switch Kyogre to something else... Maybe Arceus Water?

    If I ever use Arceus, I always try not to make him anything other than normal. Leaves you an empty item slot, and ESpeed STAB. I know water sounds good, but trust me, it doesn't work out well >.< That Arceus won't be too great at pulling his weight. Rain is great in ubers, if anything, keep Kyogre (or Politoed) and add in a Ludicolo. Ludicolo outspeeds Deoxys with Swift Swim, and can almost always OHKO Kyogre and Groudon with Grass Knot (guaranteed OHKO on Groudon)

    This was never designed to be a Rain team. Kyogre is only there to support Kyurem White sweep.

    Well neither is mine, but if the rain is there, you should use it to the best you can, ya know? Ludicolo, is honestly one of the best Pokemon in Ubers IMO

    It probably is. I don't know. All my weaknesses are sorted, but I need hazards, a more reliable Ghost/Dark resist and something to use Rain.
