Do you enjoy teams more with weather (rain, sandstorm, sun, etc.) or no weather?
I like weather teams better than teams with no weather.
I like teams with no weather better than ones with weather.
I honestly prefer non-weather in most tiers, w/ the exception being subseed ludicolo in the rain.
i like sandstorm. trying out sunny day, but i don't think it's my thing. my current team doesn't use weather though. i have multiple teams actually.

Definitely no. I don't like how things become reliant on the chosen weather and that once it is eliminated the team suffers. In ubers don't run a weather team and I quit OU in gen 5 because of the over reliance on weather. I am having fun in the lower tiers and Ubers without weather thank you very much
weather is pretty much the reason why bw is so bad compared to the previous gens
so gotta say no weather

What won't break if you throw it off the highest building in the world, but will break if you place it in the ocean?
Weather tends to be more fun to do and more fair against other weather teams.
Strong Pokemon. Karen's quotes are a selfish perception of people. Real trainers win by using Diggersby.
The biggest problem with weather is that it can give non-weather users(like myself)a massive disadvantage.
It was OK when you actually needed a turn to set up,but with Generation V, Drizzle-swift swim combos etc. have made things too easy for other people to ruin you from the very start of the first turn
I'd personally like some pokemon that perform better outside of weather.
Maybe some new weather types would be nice(so it isn't just ice,water, grass and fire types getting all the benefits.
Otherwise,I hate them.
For me, weather is kind of an either-or situation. I have my weather teams (although I don't use them that often), but I oftentimes prefer no weather. And I especially dislike it when people do typical weather teams, not putting any uniqueness to it. I try to put something unique in each of my weather teams.
I will be less active as time goes on; I have many things to do to get into college and will be focusing on that, so if you don't hear from me for a while, just be patient. I will respond, but it may take some time.

I like it. Not in favour of other team styles, but with four different perma-weathers available, there, at least in theory, twelve more viable playstyles. And I don't think by not having a weather inducer on your team you have sucha massive disadvantage as some people have suggested.
I don't have anything against weather, but it's annoying to see almost every team use weather. I personally make a bunch of non-weather teams, and they do well against weather teams. Sometimes I'll make a weather team, but I never keep it around for long.
Yep we should ban baton pass, and weather too. Oh and Trick Room, I'm tired of having to worry about Trick Room all the time. Just ban the move Trick Room, and prankster, it's broken. Ban all status moves on prankster users, they're too cheap. Oh and ban Probopass to it's so cheap. Just ban everything except Magikarp with splash.Well, actually Blaziken isn't really Uber because some people whined about how they were getting owned by it. I mean, it doesn't stand a chance in the Uber enviroment.
Now, I'm sick and tired of it. It's everywhere. I'll try a sandstorm team sometimes, though, since that's a little more flexible.
Who likes trading IV bred pokemon?
If you want to trade something there, you can just PM me. No need to go through the trouble of making a smogon forums account just for a single trade.
Without weather you can be more creative with your teams and it's more fun.
shitty weather teams rely on their own weather and don't function if they don't have it.
that's why i use weather to counter other weathers.
My latest couple teams haven't had weather, but I don't have anything against it o3o
edit: rank up C:
I don't like facing weather teams if i'm not using one myself because then it just becomes a one sided match

You need an "I like Both" Button.
I really play with both styles, and thats a good thing if you know your opponent.
A bad thing about no weather is that weather teams have the advantage, and the thing about weather teams is that with other weather teams, if you lose you set-up pokemon, your screwed.
Weather teams seem more effective than non-weather teams. Sandstorm and Hail chip away at Pokemon who aren't immune to it, Rain and Sun power up Water- and Fire-type moves respectively, Rain gives Thunder and Hurricane perfect accuracy, Hail gives Blizzard perfect accuracy, and Sandstorm doubles Rock-types' Special Defense. However, non-weather teams can be effective, especially if they carry something that halts weather teams, like Rayquaza. Cloud Nine users are also good, but most of them are in NU.
