When using instant weather abilities, does the fastest pokemon set off their weather first?

Eg. Polities vs Tyranitar, Rain starts, and then sandstorm?

No, the Pokemon that gets sent out last, sets off the Weather first. For example, If Tyranitar gets sent out after Politoad, the weather will be Sandstorm and not Rain since Tyranitar was sent out last.

EDIT: The opponent will always go first if you set up the battle, so if you have Politoad and set up the battle, then you will set up the Weather after Tyranitar does, thus setting up Drizzle.

I thought it was the slower pokemon that gets the weather.
It is the slower Pokemon.
