I have been discovering some teams and such in the UU tier according to smogon ever since the massive amounts of pokes added and this one has been doing pretty well.

Aero@Focus Sash
Jolly Nature
Evs: 252 Speed/252 Attack/ 4 Hp
Pressure ability
~Taunt
~Stealth Rock
~Earthquake
~Rock Slide
I love that Aero is in the UU tier now. EQ over Ice fang because Rock Slide can do enough to Alteria. Taunting set ups is always fun and some great stealth rock support.

Miltank@Leftovers
Impish Nature
Evs: 252 Defense/252 Hp/4 Speed
Thick Fat ability
~Heal Bell
~Milk Drink
~Body Slam
~Seismic Toss
ALONZO!!!!!!!! Anyways this thing is sturdy as hell. No scrappy because of the lack of ghost types and is a very nice cleric ^__^

Swellow@Flame orb
Jolly nature
Evs: 252 Attack/252 Speed/ 4 Hp

Swellow is just pwn. No brave bird because of recoil and flame orb will kill me way to fast.

At this point, I'm actually not so good at rating UU teams anymore, since I've been out of the game for too long, and smogon has screwed with the UU tier enough that I'm shocked to see half your team there in the first place, so.. I'm not really going to try, but a few bits I'd like to comment on..

I don't really see a need for HP Fire on Venusaur in UU due to the general lack of steels there, and Sludge Bomb really works a lot better, especially with the 30% poison chance and all the grass types around.
Then on Miltank, I really don't find Seismic Toss and Body Slam to be very necessary, so I'd say just give it thunderwave over whichever you'd rather get rid of. Also, I generally always prefer Toxic orb over flame orb on Swellow, since most of the time it finds itself just u turning out anyway, but that's all up to personal preference I suppose.

Good luck with this team. It's sort of disgusting for me to look at honestly, but what can I do..

Hp fire is there for Steelix who come in on me. Flame orb does less damage to swellow than a Toxic orb would when I stay in to sweep :P
And I have S-Toss so things like steelix can't really do anything to miltank except for expload and I can ware him down.

I forgot Steelix was UU now. :B

Either way, STAB grass knot does more to steelix than HP Fire, so that was just kind of stupid of you, and I've always liked Seismic Toss on Miltank over Body slam anyway. I really see no point in keeping both.

Steelix has always been UU.

Anyways, this seems pretty solid. However you are very rock/fight weak, with venasaur being your only resist for both. Primape and Hitmonlee could be a serious problem, especially with your physical wall being weak to their main STAB. However that's the only criticism I could find, nice job.

Lol; how long have you been playing? If you think Steelix has always been UU, then it can't be longer than two months.
Exta is right, Steelix only recently became UU to help balance out the metagame, as Scyther was simply too overpowering.

I've been playing competetivly for the best part of a year now, but if I have missed steelix get promoted and demoted then I apologise. I only assumed he had always been UU as I have used him myself on several occasions, as far back as january.
