How many trainers do you need to beat Uxie?

Beating Uxie should take 3 trainers with good Pokemon that have good counters to use.  However, most players aren’t at or above level 40 and don’t have solid teams like that, so we recommend at least four players whenever you don’t want to push your luck.
