If rain is OP then Smogon can ban it. Game Freak doesn't need to nerf an ability that was designed for uber Pokemon.

As we all know Starcraft 2, LoL, (to a lesser extent) Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3, Street Fighter 4 AE 2012 are all successful and fun competitive games because they rely on community bans for balance otherwise they'd be unplayable.

Pokemon shouldn't be so broken that it's unplayable without extra, not universally agreed on, rules.

You seem to forget that Gamefreak's main target audience is children, not the competitive, older players.

I don't think the target is children, as much as the target is to make the game is playable by children. Certainly, children are part of the target audience.

But I know for a fact that the game being broken clearly does not effect sales any significant amount (if at all) since people plain love Pokemon, so Nintendo doesn't give 1/2 a crap if the game is broken.

Add moves/abilities that remove the weather and make them widespread. That would be a nerf that wouldn't slaughter weather teams, but it would be practical, like instead of having a Spinner you'd have De-weatherer.
