    Introduction

    Rain rain, go away, come again another day. Ah, now comes the most controversial of the BW permanent weathers. Politoed, a supposedly inept Pokemon, has skyrocketed to the top of OU courtesy of Drizzle. Some argue that Drizzle is potentially broken, even with opposing permanent weather to counteract it. With Hydro Pump, Thunder, and Hurricane being spammed everywhere, how will everyone handle things? Now lets see how much damage it can do without restraints.

    General Rules
    • General tournament rules and regulations can be found here
    • Fifth Generation
    • Standard OU
    • Single Elimination
    • Species Clause

    Special Rules
    • Smogon OU banlist will apply, with a few exceptions
    • Sand Stream, Drought, and Snow Warning are banned
    • Sandstorm, Sunny Day, and Hail are banned
    • Swift Swim+Drizzle remains banned, however, you may use Swift Swimmers if opting not to run rain
    • You are NOT forced to use weather, weatherless is fine

    I think it's kinda funny that you put pictures of a bunch of very solid Pokemon that fit on standard rain teams, but then you have Pelipper? Doesn't fit haha.
