V-C8: An Original B/W2 Sun Team by CedOmega
"The Sun rises...The Sun falls...The Sun will burst...And kill us all."
Hey Smogonites! Many of you may have seen me around on the server and from the nex great raters I see wandering about, I invite you all to take a look at my new team! This is my 8th official RMT and I'm almost definite that you'll all enjoy it. Over the time between my last RMT and now, my passion for Victini grew. I enjoy using it more and more with every battle we have together. For some odd reason, I used to think that V-Create+Sun was banned and upon learning that it wasn't, I decided to go with the popular theme of using weather to my advantage. Anyways, without further due, here is V-C8!
So, I started w/ Victini as the star of team, as it was in my last RMT. It already carries massive power in a STAB V-Create, but under Sun, it reaches near monsterous physical damage to everything that doesn't resist it. Victini is moreso the scout & Trick abuser of the team, leading more that 3/5 of the time.
What is a Sun team without its Sun-setter? Ninetales tags along as the weather setter of the team. To be honest, it is an amazing annoyance under Sun; being able to set up a Sub on a counter weather switch in, and either set up its own SunnyDay or burn the opposing Pokemon w/ Will-o-Wisp.
I found a solution to T-tar threats in Landorus-T. Intimidate was really underestimated upon its release and has now become more and more popular amongst various weather teams. Landorus-T also gives the team more bulky support in terms of Intimidate being activated against physical threats.
Water threats began to become very annoying & Venusaur is already a great abuser of Sun, so it was added immediately to the team to patch up minor holes on the team.
Volcarona was then added as the secondary sweeper to the team. It usesits chance to set up and sweep effortlessly very well. With GigaDrain, it can counter Keldeo, Terrakion, and alot of other threats without an issue @ a simple +2 QD.
I needed a spinned due to the any team's wide SR and Spikes weakness. I've used Starmie on a previous Sun team in the past as a Rain countering gimmick. Suprisingly, it did wonderful! So I gave it one more shot, and it has been working successfully ever since.
The latest additon to the team, Jirachi debuts as the new scout and Trick users. It replaced Victini for the role to cover up a few holes on the team; weaknesses against some Ice & Dragon types.

The scout of the team, Victini often leads to foil the opposing lead Pokemon's set(s) with Trick. Set up sweepers like DDnite have often fallen for this TrickScarf set when expecting a U-turn and locked into DD. Under the Sun forecast, Victini's damage taken from Water type attacks is lowered, meaning I doesn't really need to fear much from weaker Water attacks while attacking with BoltStrike or scouting with U-turn.
Enjoy the team! -CedOmega
