What's your favorite Ninetales set?

Ninetales sucks but if you want to use a sun team you pretty much have to use it.

I usually use this fairly original set

Ninetales (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Drought
EVs: 124 HP / 132 SDef / 252 Spd
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
- Overheat
- Will-O-Wisp
- Hidden Power [Ground]
- Power Swap

Speed to at least tie with +Speed Mence, Jirachi, and Celebi.
Ninetales has pretty awful Special attack but Overheat in the sun is still fairly powerful. Use Power Swap if you predict a special based switch in or Will o wisp if you predict physical. HP ground is for Heatran.

Heatran more often than not carries Air Balloon.

I think I use some bull like

Roar
Will-O-Wisp
Flamethrower
Solarbeam (you should substitute this for Energy Ball, only reason I have Solarbeam is because I have two trappers in my team in Dugtrio and that Goth person thing.)

252 SDef / 252 Spd / 4 SAtk
Timid
- Substitute
- Nasty Plot
- Energy Ball
- Flamethrower

Yes Heatran walls it completely but I don't really care.

If you go on Smogon's Ninetales page, it basically says that Ninetales is useless and sucks and the only reason you should use it is because of Drought, otherwise it is a s*** Pokemon and Garchomp, Starmie, and Scizor are the best Pokemon in the meta game and if you don't use them you are the worst trainer ever. So f*** Smogon, f*** the Smogonites, and f*** how Ninetales is one of the only Fire-type Pokemon to have access to Energy Ball, but has Drought and SolarBeam, which makes it f***ing pointless.

I use this except I use Extransensory instead of Sub. Oh and Sp. Attack EV's instead of SP. Defense.

About that EV spread.... I would use 32 HP / 4 SAtk / 220 SDef / 252 Spd

Makes it bulkier from both side (not by much but there's nothing wrong with being more bulkier!)
