    This is my SM Ubers team, and i would like to show it
    Last time i ladder with it i was rank 9!
    So this is the team:



    Xerneas @ Power Herb
    Ability: Fairy Aura
    EVs: 252 SAtk / 76 SDef / 180 Spd
    Modest Nature
    - Geomancy
    - Focus Blast
    - Moonblast
    - Thunder

    Xerneas is like the sweeper. One Geomancy would sweep almost all their team. It is a great pokemon of this team


    Arceus-Ground @ Earth Plate
    Ability: Multitype
    EVs: 252 SAtk / 4 SDef / 252 Spd
    Modest Nature
    - Defog
    - Recover
    - Ice Beam
    - Judgment

    Arceus-Ground is one of my best choises for this team it can easily beat Groudon and Salamence also a lot others, it's not very bulcky tho it's sort of an offensive with it's full speed EVs


    Deoxys-Attack @ Focus Sash
    Ability: Pressure
    EVs: 252 SAtk / 4 SDef / 252 Spd
    Modest Nature
    - Extreme Speed
    - Ice Beam
    - Knock Off
    - Psycho Boost

    Deoxys is the secret weapon, the full speed EVs is like almost secured to attack first and it's super offence too, it can defeat Yveltal and Giratina if they were a problem for you, also the Focus Sash makes you servive an attack, but any attack would kill is after that, that's why therr is an Extreme Speed to weaken the pokemons


    Dialga @ Shuca Berry
    Ability: Pressure
    EVs: 64 Def / 252 SAtk / 48 SDef / 144 Spd
    Modest Nature
    - Draco Meteor
    - Flash Cannon
    - Stealth Rock
    - Thunder Wave

    Diagla is like the wall of the team most of thr people will use Ground type moves against it, that's ehy there is that Sucha Berry that will make you servive at mostly any Ground attack, it' s a great walk to use


    Groudon @ Red Orb
    Ability: Drought
    EVs: 24 HP / 212 Atk / 28 Def / 24 SDef / 220 Spd
    Adamant Nature
    - Precipice Blades
    - Stone Edge
    - Swords Dance
    - Rock Polish

    Groudon is the tank of the team, with one one Swords Dance and one Rock Polish it will beat a lot of the enemy team, it also survive against a Xerneas that used Geomancy and beat it, its a great offensive pokemon of this team

    Marshadow @ Focus Sash
    Ability: Technician
    EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spd
    Adamant Nature
    - Close Combat
    - Shadow Sneak
    - Spectral Thief
    - Swagger


    Marshadow is like the second striker, with the Focus Sash it can survive Xerneas and then steals it's boost with Spectral Thief, if there was no Xerneas you can use that Swagger move and steal their boost again, though sometimes it won't work, so it's about luck. It's also a good sweeper



    Threats: Ho-Oh is a great threat of this team, but if you didn't use Groudon yet or it's still at good health, it's the only tank for Ho-oh.

    That's mostly it, it's a great team in my opinion
    Xerneas @ Power Herb
    Ability: Fairy Aura
    EVs: 252 SAtk / 76 SDef / 180 Spd

    - Ice Beam
    - Judgment

    Hi, first of all before commenting on the team I’d like if you add pictures for each pokemons, just to make it better to look at.

    Now onto my comments:
    Your Groudon set doesn’t beat exactly Xerneas, it’s a very offensive set you have there, defensive are more Spe Def usually with Roar and Lava Plume, although the rise of Necrozma with Solgaleo form spe def was a better wall since it has Morning Sun and Sunstreel Strike. The Groudon set is good, but isn’t exactly the Xerneas wall in this context.

    I feel like both Dialga and Deoxys-Attack aren’t performing as well as they should be, you could use for example Necrozma with Mega Salamence to better check both Ho-oh and Xerneas and get a better defensive core. Keep in mind you’ll be a bit weak to Ultra Necrozma if you decide to go this way though since your team relies on Marshadow keeping its sash in order to beat it. A Choice Scarf user can be very welcome but that would mean to drop a set-up mon sadly.

    Overall your team is fine, it can lose to some Goth Offense, since it traps Arceus-Ground and pp stall it to oblivion and opens space for set up mons such as Mega Salamence to sweep you after Rocks. I would personally change Diala and Deoxys for Mega Salamenxe with Refresh and enough invest to wall Ho-oh and Return alongside Spe def Necrozma with Rocks/Toxic/Sunsteel/Morning sun.

    Hope I helped a bit


    Edit: apparently that was supposed to be sm ubers so i’m bad :[
