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 think both styles are good, however the bonus of weather is, if your opponent needs a specific weather, having your own weather up instead can mess them up badly
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.
Without weather you can be more creative with your teams and it's more fun.
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.
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:
if your rain team is centric around a toxicroak or tornadus cleaning house at the end of a match, and you lose your politoed somewhere in the middle, you're pretty ****ed even if you do carry **** like ferrothorn and jirachi that work with and without rain
The poll should have an option three: Neutral.
Anyways, I generally don't prefer weather, but I don't particularly dislike it either. I'm heavily contemplating a Hail+Trick Room team. But I also like weather because it usually boosts other team's Speed, at least of one Pokemon, and my TR renders that Pokemon pretty much screwed (assuming I get it set up that is).
But beyond that, I don't really prefer weather. It's a little overrated in my opinion; I prefer goodstuffs of Bulky Offensive.
Also, Hail is a weather where you don't want to have a team set around Hail, cos that means you have, what? Four Overcoat Pokemon, maybe 1 or 2 Magic Guard, and a bunch of Ice types to choose from. Hail would be best to use a disrupter, and then just making a team that can take the hits. It basically is used to kill other weather teams.
