PokeBase Meta Battle Subway - RMT

Any Suggestions for my OU Sun Team?

Ninetales (F) @ Leftovers
Trait: Drought
EVs: 252 HP / 96 Def / 160 SAtk
Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk)
- Energy Ball
- Fire Blast
- Calm Mind
- Protect

Well, this guy is obviously on my team. It has enough bulk, especially with those 252 HP EVs. It can't survive any super-effective hits, but it can survive against priority. Fire Blast is better than Flamethrower, as the base power easily makes up for the accuracy (which is still better than Stone Edge). Energy Ball is used over Solarbeam to take down other weather users. A Politoed, Hippowdon, or Tyranitar switching in won't be able to make Ninetales a sitting duck, and will take some damage. Calm Mind has worked well in the past for me, has even gotten me a 6-0 win. It won't be used fairly often, but when it does get in use it can make Ninetales a force to be reckoned with. Protect gives me a turn of Leftovers healing and protects me from surprise attacks, allowing me to switch out if there is something unexpected and dangerous.

Donphan (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Sturdy
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 Def
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Earthquake
- Ice Shard
- Stealth Rock
- Rapid Spin

I tried Excadrill and Claydol before. Excadrill was not bulky enough for me. Claydol was too weak. Donphan is perfect however. Stealth Rock is always helpful, as it allows my powerful Pokemon to OHKO Focus Sash and Sturdy Pokemon. Rapid Spin is a must, otherwise my team is in huge trouble from Stealth Rock. Ice Shard gives my team priority, allowing me to revenge kill (or take down a Pokemon that barely suvived Earthquake). Earthquake is STAB.

Electivire (M) @ Air Balloon
Trait: Motor Drive
EVs: 8 HP / 252 Atk / 248 Spd
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- ThunderPunch
- Ice Punch
- Fire Punch
- Cross Chop

My weather killer. Thunderpunch takes down Politoed, Cross Chop takes down Tyranitar, Fire Punch gets a boost from Sun and can take down Abomasnow, and Ice Punch takes down Hippowdon. The coverage is incredibly helpful when not facing weather teams also. Air Balloon allows me to have a better chance of taking down Hippowdon, especially one with only Earthquake as its attack. I gave it an adamant nature because 288 Speed is going to wok just as well as 318 or whatever Speed in OU. I'll just try to switch in on an Electric type attack. I used to have Blaziken and Infernape, but they just weren't helpful enough against other weather.

Volcarona (F) @ Lum Berry
Trait: Swarm
EVs: 252 SAtk / 4 SDef / 252 Spd
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
- Quiver Dance
- Fiery Dance
- Bug Buzz
- SolarBeam

This thing is powerful without Sun. In the Sun, it is a beast. Lum Berry protects from paralysis. Everything else is just standard Volcarona, with Solarbeam getting no charge with Sun.

Venusaur (F) @ Black Sludge
Trait: Chlorophyll
EVs: 124 HP / 252 SAtk / 132 Spd
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
- SolarBeam
- Hidden Power [Fire]
- Growth
- Synthesis

This thing is incredibly powerful. Growth gives it a +2 Special Attack boost, which OHKOs most foes with STAB Solarbeam or boosted HP Fire. Synthesis keeps me healthy, as does Black Sludge. This thing is fairly bulky, and so it makes for a hard to take down sweeper.

Latios (M) @ Life Orb
Trait: Levitate
EVs: 252 SAtk / 4 SDef / 252 Spd
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
- Ice Beam
- SolarBeam
- Draco Meteor
- Psyshock

Coverage. This guy is as useful as can be. Dragon types are somewhat of a problem for my team. Ice Beam (or Draco Meteor for Haxorus and Hydreigon) takes them down with ease. And Latios can outspeed all the non-Scarfed Dragon types. Solarbeam gets no charge in Sun and provides nice coverage. Psyshock takes down Blissey/Chansey while also 2HKOing Conkeldurr, my archenemy (not Sun's archenemy, that would be Heatran, but one of my personal archenemies.) Draco Metoer provides (among the beforementioned Dragon killing) strong neutral coverage that is mainly unresisted.

u have four weaknesses to water but its a pretty good team
I think your Infernape should learn more than 1 fire move like flamethrower or flare blitz
@ ShinyDrizzlePolitoed: He actually doesn't have any weaknesses to Water, since Sun weakens Waters by 50%.
