Hail needs buffing. It's by far the weakest weather at the moment. There's been a call for ice types getting a defensive boost in hail which I'd like to see as well as a Swift Swim equivilent.

Not really, Hail is really good for Blizzard since it let's you hit 100% and do minimum damage as it is.

Compare it to the other weather types though.

Rain: Doubles the power of water type moves, activates the Rain Dish, Hydration and Swift Swim abilities, nerfs fire attacks by half, makes Thunder and Hurricane 100% accurate.

Sun: Doubles the power of fire moves, activates the Chlorophyll and Leaf Guard abilities, Reduces Thunder's accuracy, removes the charging from solarbeam, doubles the stat gains when using Growth.

Sand: Gives a defense boost to rock types, damages every other type except ground and steel, reduces the accuracy of some moves, activates the Sand Rush and Sand Veil abilities.

Hail: Damages every type except ice, gives Blizzard 100% accuracy, activates the Snow Cloak ability.

I've proabaly missed a few things but the gap between hail and the rest is pretty big still.

Ice is an offensive type, not a defensive.

The issue with this is while great offensively, its riddled with horrible weaknesses defensively which results in people using the awesome ice moves on non-ice pokemon and the ice pokemon themselves typically being ignored.

I would like to see more ice type's being used, not just ice being used on every other pokemon.

Poison and bug could use some adjusting too

Hail could buff Ice moves or increase Ice-type's speed.

Or it could gain abilities like Sand Rush, like Skier or Snowmobile.
