    This is my first RMT. I've always loved running weather based teams. I love running Drought teams (despite my favorite type being Water), but I always feel they could be better. Here's the team that seems to win the most for me. Despite being a Drought team, I decided to name them all after famous black metal musicians, somewhat basing their names off their uses.

    A Sunny Day in Hell, Norway: A Black Metal Drought RMT.
    Demonaz (Ninetales) @ Leftovers
    Trait: Drought
    EVs: 136 HP / 252 SAtk / 120 Spd
    Modest Nature
    - Sunny Day
    - SolarBeam
    - Flamethrower
    - Toxic
    Instead of conjuring the snow, he conjures the fire to fuel this team. Sunny Day can cause Ttar and Politoed to switch if I predict the switch properly. Toxic cripples walls. Solarbeam takes care of Gastrodon, so long as sun is up.
    Quorthon (Venusaur) @ Life Orb
    Trait: Chlorophyll
    EVs: 252 SAtk / 252 Spd / 4 HP
    Modest Nature
    - Growth
    - Energy Ball
    - Hidden Power [Fire]
    - Sleep Powder
    The original Grass-type Pokemon, named after the original black metal musician, is in charge of sweeping. Wish support helps keep him alive longer, especially if hostile weather is (somehow) thrown up mid sweep.
    Faust (Rotom-Wash) @ Leftovers
    Trait: Levitate
    EVs: 252 HP / 168 Def / 88 Spd
    Bold Nature
    - Hydro Pump
    - Volt Switch
    - Sunny Day
    - Will-O-Wisp/Thunder Wave
    Used as a check against Ttar and Politoed. Neither dare enter the field while Rotom-W is out, as its two STAB moves cause serious hurt to both. Sunny Day is to reset hostile weather. I've been switching between Will-O-Wisp and Thunder Wave, since Will-O-Wisp dents physical attackers, but Thunder Wave has more stable accuracy and slows down everything.
    Fenriz (Hydreigon) @ Choice Specs
    Trait: Levitate
    EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
    Timid Nature
    - Draco Meteor
    - Dragon Pulse
    - Flamethrower
    - Focus Blast
    Jack of all Trades of my team, just like his namesake. Takes care of Steel-types and Ttar with a combination of Focus Blast and Flamethrower (boosted by sun). Draco Meteor is for hit and runs, while Dragon Pulse is for staying in for extended periods.
    Varg Vikernes (Chansey) @ Eviolite
    Trait: Natural Cure
    EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 Spd
    Bold Nature
    - Softboiled
    - Seismic Toss
    - Toxic
    - Wish
    Wish support to help keep Hydreigon and Venusaur alive, as well as break walls with Toxic. Like Varg, Chansey is annoying, yet we still love it. You can't live with it, but you can't live without it. Note: All deaths caused by Chansey are acts of self defense.
    Euronymous (Heatran) @ Leftovers
    Trait: Flash Fire
    EVs: 124 SAtk / 252 HP / 28 Spd / 104 Def
    Modest Nature
    - Magma Storm
    - Earth Power
    - Stealth Rock
    - Roar
    Stealth Rock support, phazer, and has potential for sweeping. Bulky enough to take a Superpower off Ttar, and potentially survive a Focus Blast. Hopefully he won't end up with the same fate as his namesake.

    Thanks for taking the time to read my first RMT and I look forward to all comments and suggestions!
