I think the pokemon which called last win the weather. For example, first trainer "go, Groundon!", and second trainer "i choose you, Kyogre!". First, it will be sunny day, after that comes the rain from Kyogre, so...it will be rain! But... I dont really sure, because that's just my opinion!

This is the true answer, as well as mine! It is true!!!
If the answer is correct, there is no need to post an additional answer on a question that was resolved over five years ago.
I don't think this answer can be right. In a link battle, the player's Pokemon always comes out after the opponent's. So if 2 players named R and S sent out Groudon and Kyogre at the same time, then R's game would display, "Pokemon Trainer S sent out Kyogre! Go Groudon!" and S's game would display, "Pokemon Trainer R sent out Groudon! Go Kyogre!" If this answer was true, then R's game will say it's sunny and S's game will say it's raining, which I don't think can happen.
I am  pretty sure the slower one ability rules

It's actually the slower Pokemon that will get the weather condition. In all the games, abilities come into play AFTER both Pokemon have been released. Their abilities are also determined by speed. (For example, take Pressure, where the faster Pokemon exhibits the ability first.)

So, for example, if Kyogre were faster than Groudon, Kyogre's would use Drizzle first, after which Groudon (the slower one) would use Drought. So the prevaling weather condition would be Sunshine, not Rain.


This is actually the right answer.  Someone should change the BA.
They technically say the exact same thing; Wobbuffet33 is just giving a situation in which Kyogre would be the slower one.
But Wobbuffet33 just said it was determined by whoever came out last.
