I would like to go AT LEAST 2 battles without seeing a rain/sun team in OU.

It's starting to get a little ridiculous. I'm gonna have to go back to RU. They're good teams but where's the creativity in teams?

My Rotom-W is the rain sweeper and my Flygon or Metagross with Stone Edge are the sun sweepers. Its a shame that I have to build my team to specifically counter gimmick teams.

Yeah, rain has been commonplace for around a year.

Quite effective in Ubers, I'll say so myself.

(I actually run dual weather, but sashtar is my suicide lead, so it never lasts more than 5 turns.)

Can't really call Toed or Ninetales the best Pokemon in OU as literally the only thing going for both of them is perma weather. Sure, they define the metagame, but that really is just because of the weather, nothing else.

And, I'm no fan of the weather dominated metagame, but it really isn't that bad.

I'm surprised I don't see as many sand or hail teams. Sand teams are way better than sun/rain.

People are whining about those two weathers? Sandstorm is easily the worst, speaking as someone who has no problems ripping sun and rain teams in two with a team that has no weather abusers on it.

I really should add a sandstorm abuser or some way to change the weather. Or both. Maybe a Jirachi with Rain Dance. .
