I've never really used a sun team before, so I'm going off of what I know and what I think will work here, so excuse me for any stupid shit I may say here. LET'S STYLIZE IT UP IN HERE The team at a glance The team building process Hide (Move your mouse to the hide area to reveal the content) Show Hide Hide Hide Sun team, Ninetales is pretty obvious. I wanted to try out Sunny Day Ninetales, just to at least have fun with the weather war's I'll be having. It feels pretty good when I Sunny Day when my opponent switches into a Politoed. I wanted to have a sun team centralizing around two sweepers, one of them being Venusaur. When I make teams like this, I usually have one boosting sweeper and one choiced. Venusaur is a pretty obvious booster, with the huge buff gen 5 gave Growth, as well as giving Venusaur Chlorophyll. Second sweeper this team is based around. At this point, Victini was Scarfed, and had an Adamant nature. I also wanted to try Victini with Trick, a new gift B/W gave it this gen. And of course, V-create in the sun hits like a flaming truck. At this point, it was going okay, but I was gonna have to have some walls, and one who has Rapid Spin. I had two choices: Forretress and Donphan. I like Donphan better, because of the sun weakening its weakness to water. Yeah, I'm a dick and I use Chansey. Sue me. I was in need of a special wall, and when I need one, I usually turn to Chansey. I also like the idea of passing Wishes to sweepers or Ninetales to keep them alive. Now, Breloom probably seems odd for a sun team, and I agree with you. But, if you haven't noticed, I despise weather wars, and this was one of answers for them. That is to say, it destroys Tyranitar, Hippowdon and Politoed. Abomasnow isn't a problam with all the fire moves on this team, and if I'm fighting another sun team, then it doesn't have much of a purpose. Chansey was the first thing to go, mainly because of my huge weakness to Tornadus-T, so I was recommended a specially defensive Rotom-W, which has actually been doing work. The latest change was Breloom to scarfed Genesect. This was mainly to patch my big weaknesses to the Eon duo and most of the dragons. Along with this, Victini became Choice Banded with a Jolly nature. I think I'll put edits in bold. The team Ninetales @ Leftovers Trait: Drought EVs: 136 HP / 252 SAtk / 120 Spd Modest Nature - Sunny Day - Fire Blast - Solar Beam - Protect No, really? A Ninetales on a sun team? NO WAY. I hate whether wars, so this team has two ways of getting around those, and Sunny Day Ninetales is one of them. As long as I predict correctly, I can turn the whether war in my favor. Fire Blast and Solar Beam are obvious, and Protect is to scout predictions from things like Specs Politoed. Venusaur @ Life Orb Trait: Chlorophyll EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd Modest Nature - Sleep Powder - Growth - Giga Drain - Hidden Power (Fire) Ever since the days of Red and Blue, I've always like Venusaur more than ever other starter. Thank god it's actually usable. I chose Giga Drain over SolarBeam because I think some sort of recovery is really important on sweepers like this. Donphan @ Leftovers Trait: Sturdy EVs: 252 HP / 4 Atk / 252 Def Impish Nature - Stealth Rock - Rapid Spin - Earthquake - Ice Shard I like Donphan more than Forretress in the sun, mainly because of the sun weakening of water moves, and the fact that Forretress is weak to fire already. That being said, it basically has the same purpose, setting up Stealth Rock and spinning them away as well. Rotom-W @ Leftovers Trait: Levitate EVs: 248 HP / 36 SAtk / 224 SDef Calm Nature - Volt Switch - Will-O-Wisp - Hydro Pump - Sunny Day Thank you Asterat for suggesting this set, I really like what you suggested. And thanks to everyone who pointed out my weakness to Tornadus-T, I guess that slipped my mind when I was making this team. This is the main counter, as well as a normal special wall. It also functions as the only Will-O-Wisp user on my team, and also can set up sun if Ninetales goes down. Victini @ Choice Band Trait: Victory Star EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd Jolly Nature - V-create - Fusion Bolt - U-turn - Trick To quote E-lo, "Victini hits like a truck regardless, and in the sun it hits like a flaming truck". Victini goes along Venusaur, being Special and Physical sweepers respectively. U-turn works for scouting, Fusion Bolt is obvious, and thank god for B2W2 giving Victini Trick. I love Tricking things like Jellicent and defensive Politoed. Now, due to Breloom being replaced with Scarf Genesect, Victini doesn't really have much of a reason to be Scarfed too. I'm gonna be looking forward to using CB Victini, and see how hard it hits in the sun. Genesect @ Choice Scarf Trait: Download EVs: 4 Atk / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd Naive Nature - U-turn - Bug Buzz - Flamethrower - Ice Beam Thanks to both Asterat and Kollin for the suggestion of Genesect, now that I look at it, it's a lot better than Breloom. Basically a counter to all the things this team has trouble with; weather inducers, dragons, Tornadus-T (kind of), etc. So, I know that this team is probably horrible, but like I said, I've never really used a sun team before, so I'm absolutely open to suggestions. Thanks!
