This stops other weather starters. Sunny Day on the turn they switch in, switch out, deal with their weather starter and I have sun up for the battle. Who I switch into depends on who the opposing weather starter is. The one time I will not switch is when its an Abomasnow (Fire Blast does 132.3% to 156.3% in hail). Solarbeam is a coverage option (only fire and dragon resist Fire Blast and Solarbeam and there is no type that resists Fire Blast and is hit neutrally by Solarbeam, and only flying resists Solarbeam and is hit neutrally by Fire Blast). Will-o-wisp tops Toxic and Protect as a support option for the last spot. Credit for set goes to lucario44444444’s brother.
Terrakion @ Choice Scarf
252 Atk 252 Spe 4 HP
This is my counter to sun counters and sand starters. Volcarona? Goodbye! Stone Edge or Rock Slide OHKOs. Heatran? Close Combat takes care of that. Sand? Tyranitar dies to CC, Hippoudon’s rare and also dies to Close Combat. Anyway, CC and Stone Edge are obvious,and I was going to use Sacred Sword, but my friend pointed out that Rock Slide is needed when you can’t afford an opposing Volcarona to survive 2 turns because of a Stone Edge miss and taking a turn to switch into Terrakion.Originally Posted by Smogon
Venusaur @ Life Orb

This is my chlorophyll sweeper. Sludge Bomb is a powerful STAB move. I was considering running Solarbeam over Energy Ball as it is also a powerful STAB move and doesn’t require charging in the sun, but means im f***ed against
derppolitoad in the rain because of the 2 turns to charge. Giga Drain provides some recovery and when someone suggested it I wanted to go with it instead, but when i tried i found out it was illegal. HP fire is to get an attack thats boosted in power by sun.
Fortress @ Leftovers
252 SpD 252 HP 4 SpA
Support, support, support. This is pure support set. Usually gets up SR+2 layers Spikes. It spins away hazards and can survive physical hits BIG TIME. Special Defense EVs let it survive 2 DMs from Choice Specs Latios. Volt switch is for a damage-doing strong move and an added option against derptoad. Obvious Rapid Spin is obvious. Need I say anything more?

Good sun sweeper. Morning Sun restores health and that is needed with a Life Orb and the primary attack doing 1/3 recoil along with Close Combat lowering my defence and special defence 1 stage. Extremespeed is for priority. I don’t use this poke very often because... look down. I used to run Wild Charge over Morning Sun but switched them when I found out that Wild charge is a 2HKO, not an OHKO on
DerpPolitoad. Now that I swiched to Sunny Day Ninetales this doesn’t fit the team as well and a replacement would be appreciated. Currently being considered: Specially Defensive Heatran, Dragonite, Salamance, Latias, Blissey, Chansey, Typhlosion, Gastrodon. Suggesting period closed, descision period starts when Venusaur V Sawsbuck is done.
Volcarona @ Life Orb
252 SpA 4 SpD 252 Spe
My main sun sweeper. After 1 Quiver Dance is up his 3 boosted stats are 583/462/490. And I normally get 2 up before sweeping. Thats stats of 311/115/165/738/492/654. CRAZY special attack, special defence and speed. To get that much special defence without boosts you would need base 172 special defence, 31 ivs, a boosting nature AND 252 EVs in special defence. To get that speed without boosts you need base 248 speed, 31 or 30 ivs, a boosting nature AND either 248 or 252 EVs depending on the ivs. It is literally impossible to get special attack that high without boosts (you get 664 with 255 base, 31 ivs, a boosting nature and 252 EVs in every stat bar HP).
The calculation for those stats was given to me by lucario44444444. It is: (base stat*2+5+ivs+(EVs/4))*nature*boost. An example is Volcarona’s special attack at +2. +2 means double it at the end, so: (135*2+5+31+(252/4))*1*2 then it goes to (135*2+5+31+63)*1*2 then to (270+5+31+63)*1*2 then to (275+31+63)*1*2 next is (306+63)*1*2 then 369*1*2 then 369*2 then you know it is 738. The full boost tables are: -6=*0.25 -5=*0.375 -4=*033. -3=*04. -2=*0.5 -1=*0.66 0=*1 +1=*1.5 +2=*2 +3=*2.5 +4=*3 +5=*3.5 +6=*4.
Venusaur VS Sawsbuck for a spot on my team(100 matches each before deciding, i need to have a chance at winning to count it)(only counting battles where the Poke participates)(In case of a tie I will Put it to a vote)(W/L/T)20/23/0(?%)to 0/0/0(0%)
