==General== One might ask: "Umbreon? What? How is this thing going to win anything in 1v1 ubers? It doesn't have Counter, it's not fast, it doesn't hit hard, Swagger Foul play is done better by Sableye or Liepard.". After some creative thinking with Firer, I came up with this set. So let us see if this herald of darkness can live up to the gods of uber. ==Godslayer Umbreon== Umbreon @ Lum Berry Trait: Inner Focus Nature : Bold (+ Def - Atk) EV's : 252 HP/252 Def/4 sp. Def -Foul Play -Swagger -Yawn -Protect You hate spore Breloom? You hate swagger Sableye? Let's mash that together into one Pokemon! Few things in general uber 1v1 can OHKO this thing, and if they can't, say goodnight. Yawn on the first turn. If the opposition doesn't carry a lum berry, umbreon can either protect, or use swagger if it can survive another hit. Then it's just foul play spam until they drop. Even if the enemy wakes up, he only has a 50/50 chance of landing his attack. Enemies that do carry Lum berries need to be swaggered on the second turn to remove the berry. Brick break from banded Arceus-normal only has about 3% chance of 2KOing it, being 2KOed in return by +2 foul play. Lum Berry Arceus gets thwarted by a second turn Swagger, which destroys the lum berry, making Arceus a sitting duck once more, while Umbreon laughs off the +2 Brick Break. Not even Deoxys-A Superpower or Focus blast can OHKO, and they all carry sashes, so those are easy kills after yawn-protect. The Lum berry makes it able to put Darkrai to sleep if it doesn't carry a lum berry itself. Darkrai becomes a 3KO after one swagger, which means umbreon is somewhat dependant on confusion against it. Inner focus destroys the occasional Jirachi and the unsuspecting Shaymin-S. ==Other Options== - A mail item to prevent trick - Chople Berry or Focus Sash kill blaziken if it uses Swords Dance - Mental Herb against Taunt-users - Taunt over protect - Speed investment gives an advantage over similar Umbreon ==Checks and Counters== - Opponents that cannot be put to sleep (Like flame orb Conkeldurr) - STAB fighting moves, like from Blaziken (If it doesn't carry Chople Berry) - Kyurem-B that gets a 3 turn outrage - Generally strong special attackers - Stall Lugia, Giratina and Whimsicott (if Umbreon doesn't carry taunt) - Sableye, Liepard (Can be beaten by taunt and if the opponent carries taunt, mental herb) - Trick - Taunt - Will-o-wisp - Magic Coat ==Additional Information== This set can also work in normal 1v1. Umbreon has a chance of surviving +2 ice gem icicle spear from maximum attack Cloyster if it doesn't choose to protect against it, definitely surviving the non-gem variant. With a Lum berry it has a good chance of beating Breloom. Jirachi is no issue due to inner focus. It can even take a fire gem max attack V-Create from Victini, and if Victini doesn't carry a gem, it has a 25% chance of taking a second one. As Scarf-Trick sets are more common in regular 1v1, exchanging the Berry for mail might not be a bad idea as well. ==Shoutouts== I would like to thank Pain34736, Piexplode and Firer for helping me to come up with and test this set.
