Yveltal resides in the Uber tier of competitive battling. With great overall stats and a good offensive typing, Yveltal is a versatile threat that can dish out heavy damage. Dark Aura is a fantastic ability that boosts Yveltal's already strong Dark-type STAB attacks. Yveltal can pull off a Life Orb set with great success due to great overall coverage and access to Oblivion Wing, a reasonably strong Flying STAB that mitigates the problem of Life Orb recoil immensely. Yveltal also has access to among the strongest priority attacks in the tier with a Dark Aura boosted Sucker Punch, making it an effective mixed attacker. Thanks to its typing, bulk, and access to recovery, Yveltal acts as a good check to Primal Groudon and among the best checks to Ghost Arceus with its physically defensive set that neuters physical threats with Dark Aura boosted Foul Play. One can opt for a Choice Scarf set that acts as a revenge killer to take care of speedier threats and potential cleaner. Yveltal is also capable of running a Choice Band that gives it ruthless wallbreaking power thanks to Dark Aura and a strong STAB in Knock Off while acting as a solid pivot thanks to U-turn. While a great Pokémon overall, Yveltal is not flawless, as its typing leaves it weak to Fairy and Rock attacks, both of which are extremely prevalent in the Ubers metagame. While Yveltal is not horribly slow, it is still outsped by a fair share of Pokémon in Ubers.
Yveltal cannot learn any moves by way of Breeding.
