(Ok I'll leave me comments on that if he gets suspect on the discussion page -____-. I would rather suspect rain tbh, -even though I'm against its ban lol-, but if that left than DeoD would be well on its way too you watch!).
Anyway, you have a good point too. Just because rain isn't being supported by usage stats doesn't make it broken, I get it, I just wanted to point out that its simply not being used as much as it was implied the past few months.
EDIT: Also Heatran is #6 WTF lol
Okay, sorry. Deo-D isn't getting a LOT of movement for a suspect, but it's there.
And anyway: I apologize for kinda ignoring what you're saying. As a primarily weatherless user (but I'm definitely using Excadrill in the OU Mini-tournament 4) I subconsciously lump all weather together. By definition, anti-weather is anti-rain AND anti-sun AND etc. So there's people who loathe Drizzle but don't give a shit about Drought and it's my bad to ignore those differences.
And what Tassa said is interesting. I'd like to see a stat on how many battles period were weatherless (neither team brought a weather inducer) and so on.
EDIT: @Gary Yeah, if Haxorus drops I can see him instantly going to BL. He's not Stealth Rock weak like Darmanitan and Victini are and has all his boosting moves.
