Yeah you're right, funnily enough it NU may be dominated by Hail and RU remains relatively weatherless because of the stonger counters available. I haven't played in ages, maybe I'll play a bit tomorrow and see what happens!
Yeah I'm really disappointed with Golurk leaving, he was one of my favourite Pokemon to use in RU. Rhyperior leaving sucks too because I need to find different ways to deal with Honchkrow. I'm happy that Gallade stayed though!
Yeah NU looks really fun, I think I automatically like any tier without weather so I'm looking forward to NU too!
