I've played Pokemon since Red/Blue, missed 2nd Generation but played a lot of 3rd Generation (Sapphire, FireRed and Emerald). Now I have Diamond and it's the only Pokemon game I play.
Don't get me wrong, I love all the Pokemon versions including Red/Blue, but Diamond serves my purpose best. That purpose is battling, and in particular Competitive Battling which Wi-Fi allows me to do. 99% of my time spent playing Pokemon is either Standard Rules Wi-Fi battling or breeding/training new Pokemon to use.
As mentioned above, I do Standard Rules battles. I'll do various styles such as standard, BL/UU, UU, Roulette, Monotype and Lv.5. I began Competitive Battling using all OUs, as we all do, and it gave me a solid basis of battling experience before I started using more BLs, then to BL/UU, and now I have moved completely into UUs.
There are a number of reasons I almost exclusively use UUs. For one, they are so much more interesting, creative, unique and most of all NOT USED ALL THE TIME. In fact, UUs are used very rarely in Standard, which is the environment I usually battle, I just get so bored of all the OUs that have been used 50 million times before. That was what made me START using UUs, however what keeps me using them is their awesomeness.
For one, there's nothing more satisfying destroying an entire team of OUs with a single Gastrodon, or OHKOing a Metagross with Lumineon, or just plain beating OUs with all UUs. Unlike a lot of battlers, I believe that in Standard UUs stand just as much chance, if not more, than OUs. If you're and experienced battler that is. With experience, one learns all the OUs and their movesets and what they do, and it becomes almost second nature predicting what they're going to do. Two advantages from this related to using UUs against OUs - one, I can predict what they are going to do, two, they CAN'T predict what I'm going to do. That is where the real strength of UUs lies.
To help ensure this, and just because I like being original, I make all my own sets (Moves, EVs, Item, Ability, Nature...) for all my Pokemon. I never copy or deliberately use someone else's ideas, including Smogon movesets and Serebii's Pokemon of the Week and such - every set is made out of my own head, however often certain aspects will be the same or similar to others. This is inevitable as there are only so many viable options for each Pokemon. Because of this, in OUs, any set would usually end up being a set people already use anyway, so another advantage of UUs is that they have plenty of creative options that people don't use.
Here are just some of my EVd Pokemon that I have used many times in Competitive Battling.
UU Hail Monotype Team
This is one of my signature and most trusted teams.
