My team has a distinct plan and I base my moves off that plan. In most of my battles (not just the one posted) tornadus gets caught in the cross fire and killed because they are scared of having certain pokemon trapped. I also dont understand why my team choice has to do with anything? The only point i can make about tornadus if it is only in rain? Thats not fair.... I thought drizzle wasnt on the table. If i can win my weather war then tornadus is not an issue. I didnt know we banned sand and sun? If I have to only post rain battles then something else should be banned... An uber is suppose to be able to work well in all weathers unless a certain combination of 2 abilities make it too powerful.
I think the point is that your team doesn't represent the average team. The fact not only were you using sun but also dual trappers, but your opponent played poorly from turn 1 (switching Thundurus into Victini? Keeping Keldeo in on Venusaur?) and it looks like he wasn't even trying (from his recent posts he said he wasn't). Overall, Tornadus needs rain to be reliable, your opponent obviously didn't give a shit about winning, and no reasonable player would try to Hurricane a Ninetales IN THE SUN 3 times.
