A good weatherless teams can combat just fine a weather team (talking about sun and rain, sand is not a weather team) and is not at a disadvantage from turn 1. I don't get why some people here say that weatherless teams are in such a bad position against rain for example, when Pokemon such as Celebi, Amoonguss, and Jellicent are so easy to fit on any team and they easily handle at least half the members of rain teams.
Well, it's been a while in this discussion that almost everybody agrees that a weatherless team can beat any rain team as long as it prepares for it a minimum (and some already stated that sun is often more troublesome), though I think a good rain team should currently have a good answer to Celebi / Jellicent. I think Lavos just implied that they were less consistent than a solid rain / sand team ; you can't say weatherless teams are on par with weather teams because they have a chance to win ONE matchup. And they do are at a disadvantage from turn one against Rain/Sun basically because they can't abuse the weather condition as much and moreover they will probably have one mon being a dead weight.
