    Question What are they!?

    What the heck is an uber?! Is it a defensive wall that's got humongous attack? Is it a Protect and Detect pokemon? Is it a pokemon with max EVs in its stats? Please help me understand!!!!!

    An uber is one of the really powerful lengandaries. All pokemon that aren't allowed in the battle tower are ubers. Wobbufet is also considered an uber by certain people, including myself.

    A Wobbufet? Uber? You mean this creature owned by Jesse of TR? :/
    I think "uber" comes from german language and means "over".

    If you achieve EVERYTHING in your Pokemon games through cheating- NetBattle is a place for you!
    But if you prefer to play fair- it's not a place for you. You will be smashed and rolled out by the flamethrowing Slowking and electric Gyarados.

    No, it a portion of the legends and Wobbufett

    The reason why Wobbufett is an uber, is beacuse of Counter, Destiny Bond and Mirror Coat. It all equals uber in my book

    (I do know it is a completely offtopic, but I cannot send a PM to you, Dawn Fan Boy. I need to talk over the thing in your signature, send me a PM or send your mail to talk precisely)

    But anime made Woobuffet a really "under", not "uber".

    Anime has nothing to do with the games. It's role in the anime has nothing to do with it's in-games stats/attacks/whatever. No matter how funny it is in the anime, that has no influence on the games.

    Uber Tier of 4th gen (to my knowledge)

    Mewtwo
    Mew
    Wobbuffet
    Lugia
    Ho-Oh
    Groudon
    Kyogre
    Rayquaza
    Deoxys - RS, LG, FR, E
    Latios (with or without Soul Dew)
    Latias (with or without Soul Dew)
    Dialga
    Palkia
    Giratina
    Manaphy (lol)
    Darkrai
    Arceus

    In a nutshell, Uber Pokémon are either Pokémon, mostly legendaries, that have either an insane base stat spread, really great movepool, or a combination of both. The reason why they are banned from normal play is because they over-centralize the standard metagame (Wobb is a huge offender).

    Wynaut was removed due to its mediocre stats and the increase of emphasis on the offensive this gen. I still don't get how Manaphy ended up in Uber, but from what I gathered, it's due to being too good when used in a Rain Dance team (crappy reasoning in my opinion, as Manaphy has a conflict with not having enough move spaces).

    So THAT'S an uber! I know what it means in German, and I knew, but I would think Porygon Z would be there, since he has amazingly high special something (I forgot). Thanks! Feel free to discuss ubers here.

    Porygon-Z has mediocre speed and horrible defenses...

    Meh, his info is obviously wrong, as you can use Latios/Latias and Wobb in the Battle Tower, while Jirachi, Shaymin, and Phione are banned.
