Go ahead and play chicken if you want. You have a greater chance of losing than Tornadus-T does. Plus you are now locked into Pursuit, allowing the opponent to switch into a set-up sweeper.

If politoad dies and ninetails or tyranitar change the weather, tornadus-t is effectively neutered. Even under the perfect conditions there are pokemon that can take a hit and OHKO back.
Please explain how Excadrill destroyed most of the metagame without sand. Also, without sun support, Gliscor, Jellicent, Gyarados, and Dragonite all had a good laugh at Blaziken's expense.
