I really hope Game Freak nerfs the weather abilities this gen

Make it so that once the Pokemon leaves the field, the usual 5 turn limit kicks in
That way, even against weatherless teams, you'll need to keep your useless frog alive

And buff Cloud Nine so that it actually removes weather instead of just ignoring the ffects

Drizzle -> 5 turn rain
Rain dance -> 8 turn rain
Damp rock upgrades Drizzle to 8 turns and Rain dance to infinite.

Doesn't necessarily have to go like that, but I think it's ridiculous that the ability is OP and makes the move useless.

This is pretty reasonable.

I rarely do competitive battling, but weather is what makes me stay far away from OU >_>

Oh wow, I always thought that cloud nine removed the weather. I just figured nobody used it because the pokemon who carry it don't have much going for them (never played Uber so was unaware of Rayquaza's inability to remove weather. Just always figured he did)

On that note, I agree that cloud nine should remove weather lol.

This. I don't want to base a team around weather, but it almost feels forced.
