@sonicthehedgedawg: well, there's really two choices, but if I had to pick the other status to block it would be sleep. It already has a lower speed stat than a lot of good OU mons, so the speed drop won't change a ton for it. I am still wondering why Cloud Nine hadn't been discussed. I think CAP3's typing would make it interestingly competent with it, as it's typing lets it blast hail and stymie sun. (incidentally, CAP3 is faster than most chloraphyll users out of sun) It hates sand in the first place, and would hate rain, but choice scarf + HP Grass would probably clean up, since cloud nine would remove any potential swift swim boost. And let's keep in mind that it is resilient to a few common forms of passive damage, removing one entirely when it switches in, meaning that with Cloud Nine it would be fairly sturdy, thanks to an immunity to sand and hail damage. I think Cloud Nine is a valid choice.
