    Now to get away from all this sand veil bullshit i think that sun should definatly recive more love, i can predict this will result in people yelling about stealth rock but the sheer power of, volcarona, venasaur ect is to much to ignore and while statisticly ninetails may be weaker tha t-tar and politoad (and abomasnow) it's nasty plot set packs one hell of a punch. Anything that can make charizard work in OU gets cool points in my book.

    I agree with everything in bold. Yanmega is a big threat without Chansey, RU is much better without Krow and Gligar and ROFL Claydol.

    About Hitmonchan, I wasn't surprised that it was that high, what I was surprised about was that the usage was from the crappy Rapid Spin set rather than the, IMO superior, LO attacker set. Hitmonchan attracts Ghost-type Pokemon as it is already and nobody uses Foresight with it anyways. >_>

    72%, you forgot to factor in Sand Veil.

    It's just that sun is so much more difficult to use than Rain/Sand. It may not be weaker (lol Volcarona), but it's a lot harder.

    I dont think it's that hard to use a couple of good switches here and there along with away to beat heatran and dragonite and you are safe, by the way that sand veil joke was absolute genius

    That was me trolling with Specs Sawk, running the only 4 Special moves it can use. Round, Grass Knot, Hidden Power, and Focus Blast.

    It ain't that hard. Just kill the enemy heatran if they have one and you're good to go.

    I would imagine it is because mr. Mime has a use as a roar blocker on baton pass teams while the rest are plain outclassed

    It'd be really nice and interesting if Scrafty and/or Toxicroak dropped down- once out of OU they both become fundamentally different Pokemon. Virizion and Mienshao would be mostly the same as before, and probs a bit much for UU in Virizion's case, and anything above that is probably too strong for UU right now. And let us pray Chansey never drops down again.

    I'm the one who used scrafty in like 200 matches, Sorry guys!
    RU took a HUGE hit, both defensively and offensively, i'm curious to see what will rise to replace these huge losses.

    Sun is just much more boring and less versatile in terms of team building.
    Basically: Ninetails+spinner+anti rain+volcarona+2...
    And I'm being very open minded. (You need to also patch up that ground weakness).
