I would suggest pairing it up with a decent Ice or Rock type move user though, since Leafeon can't do much more offensively than Leaf Blade and Double Edge.
The other problem here is that Ninetales isn't very fast, and Landorus (non Therian) outspeeds and OHKOs.
Finally, Tyranitar (or Hippowdown I guess) will be slow enough to set up Sand after Ninetales has set up sun, making sand (especially if it's packing Jellicent) a greater enemy to the sun teams in this metagame than anything else, IMO.
Yeah, but they tend to have Scrafty on their team as well, which might actually lead to Gliscor getting some popularity as a member of Sun teams as opposed to Sand teams. Flying is generally a good STAB to have, and his part Ground typing in general along with Sand Veil gives him an edge against Sandstorm teams. Due to these quirks he has, it gives people a reason to use him over Tornadus. The 4x Ice weakness is a pain, but now that Abomasnow is gone and Water types have been nerfed by the lack of DrizzleToed, he's probably going to be put high on the "to kill" list.
