As much as I am disappointed by the decision to unban hail I am even more surprised by the reasoning. Not only did the vast majority of the paragraphs gloss over the fact stallrein alone can hammer hyper offensive teams, an entire play style, I don't think even once was there a mention of how easy it is to make a cookie cutter hail stall team (Snover/Walrein/Nidoqueen/Blastoise/Froslass/Filler) which cuts down on skill level on the ladder at least and encourages less diversity. Seriously I've seen at least 3 variations of that stall team not including my own...
But its not like anything is going to be done about that.
What do you all think of CM Aura Sphere Raikou? It can basically bypass Umbreon as a counter and defensive Snorlax (you'll have to hit offensive lax on the switch to not die instantly). It pretty badly messes with hail stall if you use hp ice and if you manage to weaken their Nidoqueen/Snover a little.
Also I have been using Scolipede like in 5 battles and its really cool when paired up with Heracross...its SD set is like insanely fast although I think Weavile might pair better with Heracross. But still OHKOing Mew before a boost? yes plz! so use more scolipede C:
