Korean (Ninetales) (M) @ Focus Sash
Trait: Drought
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
- Flamethrower
- Psyshock
- SolarBeam
- Calm Mind

Lead Sun opener. Flamethrower is obvious STAB, Psyshock is coverage and blissey killing, Calm mind is setup and solarbeam is coverage. I was about to add in will o wisp to cripple but nah.Focus sash is there to set up calm mind due to ninetails frail defense.

lol (Sawsbuck) (M) @ Focus Sash
Trait: Chlorophyll
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Swords Dance
- Horn Leech
- Jump Kick
- Return

Chlorophyll sweeper. Swords dance is setup then you hang on with focus sash, Horn Leech is STAB and to recover off the damage from setting up swords dance, jump kick and return is for power. I used adamant nature because he already has a great boost that I should just boost his attack.

your face (Cryogonal) @ Focus Sash
Trait: Levitate
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SDef / 252 Spd
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
- Flash Cannon
- Ice Beam
- SolarBeam
- Hidden Power [Fire]

Sweeper. Flash cannon is coverage against rock, Ice beam is STAB, solarbeam is just awesome and HP fire gets the boost in sun.

arf (Arcanine) (M) @ Shell Bell
Trait: Intimidate
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)
- Flare Blitz
- ExtremeSpeed
- Wild Charge
- Close Combat

Suicide Sweeper. Flare blitz is STAB, E-speed is priority, Wild charge is coverage, and c-combat is even more coverage. Shell bell is there so I can recover off the recoil and I am not giving this guy bite because I don't like using hax and I have terrible luck with it when I try to use it

OU (Ferrothorn) (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Iron Barbs
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Def / 252 SDef
Careful Nature (+SDef, -SAtk)
- Stealth Rock
- Spikes
- Thunder Wave
- Power Whip

Your typical ferrothorn. No explaining is really needed.

Classics (Venusaur) (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Chlorophyll
EVs: 128 Def / 252 SAtk / 128 SDef
Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk)
- SolarBeam
- Sludge Bomb
- Leech Seed
- Hidden Power [Ground]

My special sweeper/tank. Chlorophyll is there to make him crazy once again with buff defenses. S-beam is STAB, Sludge bomb is the other STAB, Leech seed is to recover and make a force switch, and HP ground is coverage.

Bashin the bite? :P
That was a one time suggestion, Crobat just has crappy coverage and honestly nothing better to use.
Lol bite didn't really work out :P

This is my first weather team anyway
Are you making fun of Koreans? Because I had lots of really good friends that were Korean.
Ninetales is based off a Korean fox.
Ohhh. Okay, but he could make it a bit clearer. It looks offensive at first if you don't get it.
I am korean :P

Best answer

Ninetales

If you're going to run a Sash set, go ahead and give him Nasty plot over Calm Mind. Fire Blast is also considerable over Flamethrower, due to PO making the accuracy work amazingly.

Sawsbuck

With a Focus Sash, any kind of damage can kill him, so Jump kick is way too risky here, because if it misses, or someone get's smart and switched into a ghost, you're screwed. I would consider replacing it for Megahorn. And unless you spent your time figuring out what the number for max happiness is, and putting it in, then Frustration will have 102 power, and Return will have about 2 - 3 power. So you might want to use Frustration if you didn't do that.

Cryogonal

You don't need Flash Cannon, SolarBeam has rock covered with higher power already, and Flash Cannon gives generally crappy coverage. Perhaps think about changing that out for either Rapid Spin to clear hazards set by your opponent, or a screen of some type. ( Reflect or Light Screen I mean ). This guy has amazing Special Defense, and you even bothered to throw 252 Ev's into it ( Although they should still go to Sp Atk instead ) No need for a Focus Sash, a Life orb would do pretty good here.

Arcanine

You're probably going to want a Muscle Band, Life orb, Flame Plate, or some other form of damage enhancer ( Although an Air Balloon would also be an interesting touch ). This guy's a Suicide Sweeper, no sense in trying to recover Shell Bell Hp, which still won't get much done back from what he lost. 110 Base Attack needs boosting, Also Consider a Choice Band.

Ferrothorn

This guy being on your team just doesn't need to happen. You already have 2 grass types, and you're using a pokemon with a 4X fire weakness, in the sun. Anything fire that hits this guy is going to kill him, no questions asked. He's not offering any extra coverage, I would replace him. I would consider for another Wall, just a few suggested pokemon: Togetic ( Gets Morning Sun, which heals more in the sun ) - Umbreon ( Gets Moonlight which heals extra in the sun )

Venusaur

Once again, you only need 1 grass type, Grass doesn't have that amazing of coverage in the first place, no need to have more than one on the same team really.
And all of your pokemon don't have to have amazing sun benefits, some may just be there because your team needs that kind of coverage. Anyway, if you're going to bother to keep him, Throw out Leech Seed for Synthesis.
