Thanks for the Yveltal help Justin. Was really useful. Not too sure if I'd use it, as I like my Yveltal, and it feels more like an offensive Pokemon than a defensive one, but I really like both. For now I'll make it around my Yveltal, but I'll add some defensive EVs to let it tank some hits better.
124 EVs outspeed even Max Speed Ho Oh, and the B/W 136 Speed Lugia, which was the fastest many people went to avoid losing bulk. It still can't do anything to Lugia, as Oblivion Wing does less than a 5th to Multiscale Lugia without Special Defense investment. That's with Max Special Attack on Yveltal, with Life Orb Dark Aura. So Lugia is a check to Yveltal. 68 Attack EVs is a 2HKO on Max HP Ho Oh. So 68 + 124 = 132 + 60 = 192. I have 508 EVs to obtain, so that leaves me with 316 EVs to beat down certain threats, such as Mewtwo, Genesect, Aegislash, Arceus Ghost, Gengar/Mega Gengar, Tyranitar and Terrakion. I know Yveltal counters a few of them, but I want to sort out the EVs for dealing with them. 92 SpA EVs let Yveltal 0HKO TTar in Sand (provided it isn't Mega (which is unlikely in Ubers when you have Mega Mewtwo/Gengar/Kangaskhan/Lucario/Scizor) or holding an Assault Vest) and a combination of Sucker Punch + Focus Blast beats Terrakion (Focus Blast it on the switch, Sucker Punch to bypass it's Scarf) in Sand. Otherwise, FB is an 0HKO. It is a 2HKO though, so provided I hit TTar on the switch into FB, it's a solid 2HKO. Or FB + U- Turn is also a 2HKO, should I not want to risk missing. Sucker Punch + Focus Blast beats Mega Tyranitar in Sand. Ghost Arceus is 2HKOed with Sucker Punch, an 0HKO with Stealth Rock on the field. Aegislash is just destroyed by Yveltal. Sucker Punch/Oblivion Wing is a 2HKO on Genesect. Sucker Punch 0HKOes any Gengar, Mega or not. Mewtwo normal is also 0HKOed. With that complete, 216 - 92 = 224 EVs for bulk. 224 HP EVs help it tank hits from stuff like Genesect and Ghost Pokemon. Terrakion and Tyranitar still 0HKO with Stone Edge. Ho Oh 2HKOes with Brave Bird or Sacred Fire, but Sucker Punch 2HKOes first via priority. Ho Oh (standard Sub + 3 Attacks) still only 2HKOes after Rocks. Genesect can only 2HKO after Rocks. Yveltal 0HKOes both of them after Stealth Rock (definitely with Ho Oh, maybe with Genesect). So yeah. I should mention it outspeeds most Arceus Ghost, which means Sucker Punch goes before Extremespeed.

First time I've ever made my Pokemon's own EVs. Really cool. Shows I'm improving as a competitive battler, I think.
