I don't see why people are focusing on Drought when it's hardly the biggest suspect. There are several pokemon that hard counter Sun teams. You can use Hippopotas for Sand or Snover for Hail which can help counter Sun (I've used Hippo on a defensive team that had no problems with Sun). Those obviously aren't great ways to deal with Sun because of the spammed Grass- and Fire-type attacks, but you also have three Pokemon with Weather nullifying abilities. Both Lickitung and Swablu are great on balanced/defensive teams, and while Scarf Psyduck isn't optimal, makes a fine weather counter. The fact that Sun sweepers have multiple HARD COUNTERS definitely makes them far less broken than things like Zuruggu or Murkrow who have maybe 1 or 2 solid counters/checks. I'm not saying that Drought isn't broken or isn't suspect, but imo it's not THE broken thing that's gotta go. Murkrow is probably the most broken thing in the metagame right now. The offensive sets rip through everything. Offensive Murkrow (with Brave Bird/Sucker Punch/Heat Wave/Hidden Power Ice, although I guess you can use Roost over Hidden Power) is basically the only Pokemon in the metagame where once it comes in, you have to choose which of your Pokemon to sacrifice because barring near perfect prediction (dare I call it clairvoyance) it's taking down at least 1 Pokemon. This wouldn't be that bad if Murkrow didn't have 19 Speed and the strongest Sucker Punch (I guess it's tied with Komatana now who usually runs Adamant so I guess its stronger but w/e) in LC, but it does. The only poke that I know of that can actually switch in on Murkrow and live the next hit is Slowpoke, who hates pretty much every other variant of Murkrow (Taunt, Roost variants can be annoying, Sub, CM+HP Dark, etc). Speaking of which, Murkrow is also the most unpredictable Pokemon in the metagame. It has two main sets that have basically opposite counters/checks (think: Salamence last gen). Zuruggu is also pretty suspect. It is not nearly as immediately threatening as Murkrow, however I find that in the long term it is far more threatening. It has many checks, and is easily revenge killable, however I feel that most of its checks don't last long due to a lack of recovery or bulk or utility outside of checking Zuruggu (I'm talking about you here Evolution Stone Meditite!). This is problematic because Zuruggu is bulky as fuck and has a shitton of Pokemon that it can come in on. Chances are if you're playing a competent player, your one or even two Zuruggu checks won't be enough. I think Zuruggu is pretty unhealthy for the metagame. There are so many Pokemon that are great right now, but many of them are complete setup bait for Zuruggu. This means that if you use a Pokemon like Slowpoke or Tesshiido or even Misdreavus on your team, you need AT LEAST one or two Pokemon that can solidly check Zuruggu. Again, I wouldn't have a problem with this (because that's how teambuilding works lol) if you didn't need multiple Pokemon for every one Pokemon that's Zuruggu bait because of how shitty they are otherwise. I'm sorry, but Dokkora sucks outside of killing Zuruggu, Croagunk sucks outside of killing Zuruggu, and Evolution Stone Meditite is inferior to LO Meditite outside of killing Zuruggu. Monmen has utility but is pretty damn hard to keep alive AND can only come in on DD, and Scarf Kojofuu has a shitton of hard counters which means it won't be lasting that long (especially if it's firing off HJKs to try and OHKO Zuruggu). etc. EDIT- Forgot Meditite. Meditite is less suspect than Drought (in my eyes anyways). Slowpoke counters it all day long without ThunderPunch which nobody runs. Gligar works without Ice Punch. Wynaut with Evolution Stone traps it and kills it. It's very easy to revenge kill with only 16 Speed (enter: Misdreavus, Murkrow, etc), and doesn't have much staying power. It has more hard counters than Sun sweepers AND is easily to revenge kill. And outside of its hard counters, with a little prediction you can still switch into its attacks. I also feel that Misdreavus is "a little too good", but not suspect imo. Evolution Stone can suck it, there are bigger problems right now.
