I've jumped from set to set, but I haven't landed on a "best" set. I think offensive sets are generally a bad idea since you want to keep it alive for as long as possible. I usually run SpD on my Ninetales, but sometimes I run physical defense to check phys attackers a bit better.
Can we do Breloom next e_e
Breloom was the first Pokemon of the week
. Anyways, I've found a decent amount of success in using a defensive Ninetales. This lets it act as a decent pivot for the rest of its team, setting up sweep opportunities for the rest of its team and stuff. I don't have much else to say; Ninetales is indeed bad, and Drought should have been given to Arcanine, who actually has a decent movepool and BST.
