Weather is important in this metagame, and Abomasnow is my favorite pokemon so of course this is gonna be a hail team. It might look standard for a hail team but oh well.

Abomasnow @ Life Orb / Chople Berry
Snow Warning
Quiet 0 Spd IV's
140 HP/ 6 Atk/ 204 Def/ 160 Sp. Atk
-Wood Hammer
-Light Screen/ Earthquake

The Ev spread is kinda all over the place. I just hate for him and any of my pokemon to be sitting around with absolutely no bulk and being OHKO'd so easily, and with all of his weaknesses its a very common thing. Protect is for scouting a turn and to keep him safe while trick room is being set up, light screen is to help the entire team's Sp. Def, and earthquake is an option to hit steels that resists both my Stabs.

Jellicent @ Leftovers/ Water Gem
Bold 0 Spd IV's
Cursed Body
160 HP/ 96 Def./ 252 Sp. Atk /
-Trick Room
- Hydro Pump
-Shadow Ball
-Giga Drain / Ice beam

This guy is amazing. It resists all of Abomasnow's weaknesses aside from Rock and Flying. How can I not get this guy on my team? He doesnt gain anything from hail, but he's still great. Fake out wont do anything, so if theres a fake out user on the field they'll be aiming at Abomasnow, who can protect while Jellicent sets up the trick room. Then Abomasnow and Jellicent can just synergize and be amazing. Hydro pump and shadow ball are my two stabs. Giga drain is to catch gastrodons off guard, however Ice beam is for dragons named Hydreigon who resists my two stabs. I like to think Abomasnow's blizzards can take it out but if Abomasnow faints I'll be walled by it.

Abomasnow and Jelli will be my go-to leads. But if i see something that I dont like in the team preview I'll switch it up to have an advantage. Anyways,

Escavalier @ Occa Berry
Brave 0 Spd IV's
252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 SpD
-Iron Head
-Quick Guard
-Protect / Double Edge

Thanks the heavens that there isn't a priority fire move in this game, as that's his only weakness. He synergizes with Abomasnow despite having the same fire weakness thanks to Abomasnow's Light Screen. Also mach punch and BP are so common and can pick off Abomasnow easily even with most of his health so quick guard can protect him. Once Trick Room is up this guy is free to try an unboosted sweep. Megahorn and Iron Head are my stabs. Double Edge is for fire types who resist. Heatran is the exception, he walls me perfectly. Oh and overcoat is my ability of choice because he's pretty bulky, I dont wanna ruin that with hail each turn.

Cresselia @ Sitrus Berry
Sassy 0 Spd IV's
252 HP / 60 Def / 196 SpD
-Helping Hand
-Trick Room
-Light Screen
I need at east two trick room setters. So Cresselia it is. I see her on every competitive team in doubles. And I know why, Shes amazing. Helping hand is for giving any of my other pokemon an attack boost. Light Screen is there to help all of my guys Sp. Def. Since Cresselia has it this is why Im debating on Light screen or Earthquake on Abomasnow. Earthquake seems a lot better though. Cresselia is immune thanks to levitate and it gives me something to hit steels with. Psychic is to finish of weaker pokemon. Again, this thing is walled by Hydreigon and anything else that's dark. So at this point i wanted a fighting type pokemon

Conkeldurr @ Flame Orb
Brave 0 Spd IV's
212 HP / 252 Atk / 44 Def
-Drain Punch
-Mach Punch
-Rock Slide
-Detect/ Wide Guard

Standard set is standard. With Burn Damage and Hail, Drain punch becomes vital for this thing to survive. Mach punch is for priority in case TR is gone. Rock Slide to hit err'body. Wide Guard is to protect from Heat Wave/ Earthquake/ and multi target attacks. But Detect makes sure I get burned before i get put to sleep, or faked out.

Glaceon @ Bright Powder
Quiet 0 Spd IV's
252 HP /4 Def / 252 SAtk /
-Double Team
-Shadow Ball
-HP ground/ Fire

Just because i dont have many hail abusers. This guy trolls. Double team is allowed in VGC, and Ive once dealt with a Minimize chansey and It was so annoying, so this is my answer to that Chansey.

I really dont know who can be my sixth pokemon. I want an abuser of hail but they all share similar weakness. Ive thought of Reuniclus but adding him would give me three pokemon weak to Dark and Ghost and Bug. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks
