Oh, sorry I just realized how unclear I was. I was talking about the choice of Volt Switch vs. Thunderbolt/Thunder not of the set as a whole. For the switching out part, I was talking about how SubPlot risks losing the boost it wasted a turn for when a faster threat comes in whereas LO Thundy has been dealing damage. So switching out for switching out, at least some dents have already been made. Anyways, that was just for clarification. I was thinking general situations and not realizing that in reality, anything slower gets beaten down by boosted Thunders (Including weather inducers) whereas anything faster isn't bulky enough to survive after breaking Thundy's sub. Thanks for the corrections, I'm going to go screw around with SubPlot until I get tired of seeing rain. So if I've got this right, what Thundy T lost in speed he gained with power. Allowing him to forgo the coverage move that Thundy-I needed, for Substitute which allows him to maintain the role of a deadly and difficult to revenge rain sweeper that other weather inducers fear.
Then again, he can only make one kill before a revenger or wheather inducer switches in cutting off his sweep (Unless you want to keep pushing your luck with a focus miss like Thunder). Which makes me wonder why not use agility over Substitute. Thundy-T isn't bulky enough for that sub to serve as anything other than an ease for prediction. By opting for agility, you can pervent any opportunity to revenge kill in exchange for just having to click the right boost on the switch in.
One last thing, the blobs still counter the set as they can tank one boosted Thunder and cripple with a Toxic.
Afterthought edit: Feorrothorn can do the same with leech seed if you choose Agility over Substitute. Is that why you prefer SubPlot?
After-afterthough edit: Modest Lum Double Dance Thundy-T sounds delicious.
