OU sun. Made improvements thanks to SlipperyDevil but still needs work. Thanks SOOOOO much slip!!

Gyarados @ Water Gem
Trait: Moxie
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
Adamant Nature
- Dragon Dance
- Earthquake
- Ice Fang
- Waterfall
Gary here is my moxie abuser and my Rain counter. He sweeps teams like a so-and-so and is hard to beat. Its hard to stop after even one D-Dance. Its goner be hard to get me to give this one up.

Ninetales @ Grass Gem
Trait: Drought
EVs: 252 HP / 252 SAtk / 4 SDef
Calm Nature
- Flamethrower
- Nasty Plot
- Hidden Power [Fighting]
- SolarBeam
Pretty much the same as slips one.

Gliscor (M) @ Choice Scarf
Trait: Hyper Cutter
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spd / 4 HP
Adamant Nature
- Ice Fang
- Earthquake
- U-turn
- Brick Break
My sand counter. Choice Scarf Ice fang beats any Ground type and Earthquake deals with fast Heatran.

Sableye @ Focus Sash
Trait: Prankster
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SDef
Calm Nature
- Recover
- Will-O-Wisp
- Taunt
- Night Shade
I like this guy. Prankster Sableye works well against walls like Deoxys-D and Blissey shutting them down nicely. But I think I might need Blissley though due to lack of a real wall other than Jirachi.

Kyurem-Black @ Power Herb
Trait: Teravolt
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 SDef
Adamant Nature
IVs: 30 Atk / 30 SAtk
- Outrage
- Zen Headbutt
- Freeze Shock
- Stone Edge
One heck of a wall breaker. I forgot to give it Speed instead of HP but other than that it is very good.

Jirachi @ Leftovers
Trait: Serene Grace
EVs: 222 HP / 224 Def / 62 SDef
Serious Nature
- Cosmic Power
- Thunder Wave
- Ice Punch
- Wish
Wall. Got the set from Slip's slowbro.

Is this any god? I wan't Venusaur but don't know who to replace. I also hev trouble with hazards. Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks everyone!!

PX ;)

EDIT: I decided on Mew as my rain counter. This is the set I am going to run...

Mew @ Big Root
Trait: Synchronize
EVs: 252 Spd / 252 SAtk / 4 SDef
Timid Nature
- Psychic
- Ice Beam
- Thunder
- Aura Sphere
My rain counter. Thunder won't miss in the rain and mews high speed and SpAtk makes it a dangerous sweeper otherwise. This is instead of Sableye. Good idea?

Item: Leftovers
Ability: Drought
EVs: 252 Sp. Atk, 252 Speed, 4 HP
Calm Nature
Nasty Plot
Hidden Power Ice
Will-O-Wisp/ Hypnosis

There is no need for a Gem on Ninetales. Nasty plot is enough of a boost and you should rather consider a long term item like Leftovers on your weather Pokemon rather than a once use item. Solarbeam is something that I don't like. A lot of Ninetales I've seen run it, and all it takes is one Politoed switch in and Solarbeam now takes 2 turns, which means your opponent can now use Protect or switch to a grass/ poison type to take the hit.

You want a sweeper, right? Then invest EVs in its speed. If you use your Ninetales as a sweeper, rather than have it defensive, you need to look at the rest of your team and think about how it will work in the (likely) event that your Ninetale faints. Can your team continue functioning without your weather lead.

Ability: Storm Drain
Item: Leftovers
EVs: 252 HP, 252 Sp. Def, 4 Sp. Atk
Nature: Sassy/ Calm
Earth Power

Thunderbolt will OHKO Gyarados. Most rain sweepers, namely Thundurus-T, will be scarfed. A Scarfed Thundurus-T with 252 Speed EVs will outspeed your Gyarados after 1 Dragon Dance. You might as well go with Gastrodon for a rain counter, since it has Storm Drain, Recover, and Ground typing (which will help against other sun teams and Electric immunity).

Item: Toxic Orb
Ability: Toxic Heal
EVs: 252 HP, 180 Def, 76 Speed
Nature: Impish
- Swords Dance
- Earthquake
- Ice Fang/ Facade
- Protect/ Roost

Might as well give your sweeper some bulk. If you have Earthquake, there is no need for Brick Break; anything carrying a balloon can be dealt with by Ice Fang/ Facade, and then Earthquake, which gives powerful STAB.

Ability: Prankster
Item: Leftovers
EVs: 252 HP, 128 Def, 128 Sp. Def
Nature: Calm
Foul Play/ Night Shade

Leftovers > Focus Sash. Sableye will be able to use Recover with prankster anyway. You could also run a Trick set (using Iron Ball/ Sticky Barb/ Choice item) to ruin your opponent's cleric.

Item: Life Orb/ Choice Scarf
Ability: Teravolt
EVs: 200 Speed, 200 Sp. Atk, 108 Atk
Nature: Lonely
IVs: 30 Atk / 30 SAtk
Ice Beam
Fusion Bolt
Dragon Claw

Freeze shock/ burn are useless moves. You use your Power Herb once and then you're left with something useless taking up a space in your moveset. Ice Beam does more damage over 2 turns, and has 100% accuracy.

The really good thing about Kyurem is that it can serve as a mixed sweeper; with 170 Atk and 120 Sp. Atk, it can use Ice Beam (as most ice moves are special) along with Outrage. Now that it's in OU, Dragonite is finished.

Ability: Seren Grace
Item: Leftovers
EV: 252 HP, 252 Sp. def, 4 Speed
Nature: Careful
Thunder Wave/ Body Slam
Iron Head
Protect/ Stealth Rock

Jirachi should abuse Serene Grace to its fullest extent. This set is genuinely annoying. Body Slam to deal damage (with 60% paralysis) or Thunder Wave for 100% paralysis. Your choice.

Mew @ Leftovers
Ability: Synchronise
EVs: 4 HP, 252 Sp. Atk, 252 Speed
Nature: Timid
Nasty Plot
Shadow Ball
Flamethrower/ Aura Sphere

Okay, why is Mew holding a Big Root when it has no draining moves? Did you check what the item did before you gave it to Mew?

Since you had a sweeper set, go with this for Mew; standard Smogon set.

Ability: Volt Absorb
Item: Life Orb/ Choice Scarf
EVs: 252 Sp. Atk, 252 Speed, 4 HP
Volt Switch
Hidden Power Ice
Grass Knot/ Focus Blast

Consider this to be the better Rain counter, due to Volt Absorb and STAB in Thunderbolt. Don't go with Thunder because it's 50% in Sun, so you'd have wasted a move if you are not facing a rain team. It will also provide coverage against grass types with HP Ice.

Item: Life Orb
Ability: Chlorophyll
EVs: 4 HP, 252 Sp. Atk, 252 Speed
Nature: Modest
Giga Drain
Sludge bomb
Sleep powder

Since you thought about Venusuar, here's a moveset for it. I'd go with Giga Drain over Solarbeam, because in rain it will do half the damage it usually does.

I know there are 9 Pokemon here, but I gave a set for all of them so you can choose for yourself what is best.

Thanks Marzipan!! I was not thinking straight at the time and made some stupid mistakes. I will
try and error these. Jirachi is much better, but I am not replacing Gyarados. Big root was a accident. Thundurus is fine but other than fast Gliscor how am I supposed to deal with ground? Thanks so much!!
