Moves: Solarbeam,Fire Blast,Hidden Power[Ice],Sunny Day

Ninetales is my lead,setting up the weather sunny.I went with Solarbeam to take advantage of Drought,also for coverage.Fire Blast is STAB,obviously.And Hidden Power[Ice] is for Dragon types,mainly Rayquaza and Altaria.And Sunny Day is when another weather comes up.

Fortfire(Torkoal)Male

Torkoal is my Rapid Spinner.Ev spread is to last against Rock and Water types.

Most of it looks decent-good. pretty well thought out for the most part. here's my main critique. Charizard is a Fire/Flying type, as i'm sure you know. Aside from weather, Entry Hazards are EXTREMELY common, as i'm sure you also know. amthese Hazards, there's one called Stealth Rock. against a Fire Type switch in, SR will take 25% of a Fire Types Max HP.....except it also takes 25% from a Flying Types HP. so math skills: 25% + 25% = 50% of Charizards max HP. that means that to deal with Charizard,all I need to do is lay down SR, then after your Zard switches in Phaze it with Whirlwind or Roar, and, unless Torkoal can RS those Rocks, Zard is gonna bite the bullet on its next switch in. and they may even just keep using Roar or WW to shuffle around your team, and drag Zard out before you can even Spin anyway. easy kill.

In all honesty, maybe 4 months? i played a lot locally but i needed a challenge. obviously prostatus players play way differently. also most of the competitive battling i have done was Gen IV, and theres a lot of changes and such. on a side note, i usually stick to UU or OU. Zard is NU i believe? and Torkoal RU?? idk but they're definitely not Poke's i deal with frequently so all i had to go off of was base stats and movepool options. i learn pretty fast, so that's why i joined this site, to try to expand my horizons. overall, i would say i know more than most this new to competitive battling; but im by no means a guru of sorts.
4 months is a while. Your not new. Slip', I want to face you tomorrow. Just to see how good you are.
Slip, come to the chat room.
Roar and Whirlwind will always move last he can always spin away the rocks if you try that
Erick, i'm going to chat now. Im pn my phone not a desktop
