Never doubt.
You get Bubblebeam really early in RBY, which can make a good Water move for something until you pick up Surf.
But yeah, I still voted Sunny Day. If you plan on using Sunny Day, you'll still have it by the end of the game. If you plan on using a Water type move, you probably won't have Bubblebeam still. --- Official Chespin of the Pokemon X boards. http://www.youtube.com/Decon082/
Bubblebeam was decent but forgettable pretty quickly.
Sunny Day, has practical uses, and although weather is dominate in the metagame (which can be annoying) it shows how innovative the series has become. (From no weather, to weather, to etc.) --- Ignoring sheep. Best solution on CoD boards.
