Ubers BW2 Team

I've been playing Ubers quite a lot recently, mainly with this team. I just want to see if it could have any improvements made to it. All suggestions welcome!

How well has this been doing exactly? I can't imagine it doing particularly well at all against anyone good since it doesn't really pay much regard to any of the big threats in Ubers (Kyogre, Arceus etc.) Also, you have a Sun team in Ubers without Reshiram why exactly?

Hitmontop seems a bit sketchy here since it's not exactly the best defender in the world in a tier where half the enemies have Base 150 offenses on average, not to mention Psychic is quite a prevalent type in Ubers thanks to Mewtwo, Lugia, Latios and Deoxys.

There's no point using Forretress in Ubers if you aren't using Rapid Spin on it. You're better off using Ferrothorn instead since it fights off Kyogre and Palkia much better.

I'd take a closer look at that tier and make something a bit more solid if I were you. You can make a lot more from Ubers than this.
