>>24950672 Latias. Tyranitar can switch in on Solarbeam since it changes weather to Sand and makes it take a turn to set up the Solarbeam. If your running Scarf Tyranitar you can outspeed and kill it or proceed to switch to something that resists Solarbeam. Heatran laughs in Y-Zard's face and OHKO's with Ancient Power.
>>24950672 Lati@s with Roost Tyranitar, preferably Scarf, on the non-FocB Specially defensive Talonflame Goodra Flash Fire Chandelure with Pain Split Dragalge Mega Charizard X Heatran, preferably Scarf, on the non-FocB Bulky Moltres Specially defensive Hippowdon post-Mega Politoed post-Mega Dragonite, preferably bulky Mega Ampharos Bulky Mega Altaria Defensive Noivern or Salamence if you're into that (the typing is important basically) Restalk Bulky Gyarados Aerodactyl Sap Sipper Azumarill
>>24950877 You misunderstand what I mean by post-Mega. We've already deduced it's Y, but post-Mega is so that it doesn't get advantage of setting up the Sun ~after~ you switch in your Sand/Rain setter.
>Lati@s with Roost Only defensive Latias doesnt get 2HKoed. Struggles to OHKO back. >Tyranitar, preferably Scarf, on the non-FocB Yes. Preferably on Solar Beam. >Goodra Yes. But lacks recovery and cant OHKO back. >Flash Fire Chandelure with Pain Split Good luck using that in OU. >Dragalge Get 2HKOed by Fire Blast after SR. >Mega Charizard X Yes with Roost, but kek. >Heatran, preferably Scarf, on the non-FocB And lock yourself on fvcking Stone Edge? >Bulky Moltres Good luck using that in OU. >Specially defensive Hippowdon post-Mega Kinda. >Politoed post-Mega Yes, but you have to adjust your whole team to that. >Dragonite, preferably bulky Yes. >Mega Ampharos Good luck using that in OU. Good luck on the first switch-in, when it gets reduced to 10% after SR + non-resisted Fire Blast. >>24950815 >Bulky Mega Altaria Yes. >Defensive Noivern kek >Defensive Salamence Please dont do that too much >Resttalk Bulky Gyarados Not so effective in the sun in OU. >Aerodactyl Takes 70% on the switch-in after Stealth Rock. >Sap Sipper Azumarill The threat is not Solar Beam, it is Fire Blast, even when resisted.
>>24954306 Mega Charizard Y outdamages Specs Ninetales, and actually gets kills on things. For example, Char-Y's Sun-boosted Fire Blast OHKOs standard Lando-T.
Char-Y is one of the most dangerous Pokemon in the game, especially since Fairy and Steel easily push out the Dragons that would try to fight back. People fail to see its power the same way they failed to see Lando-I's power at first. The opportunity cost was Lando-T, which was very useful. Char-X is very useful in the same way. If weather were permanent, I could make an argument for Y being bannable. As it stands now, it's still annoying to have to account for during team-building, but at least it does have switch-ins.
>>24954686 People switch in Lando-T on Charizard all the time expecting it to be X, and get downed by a Fire Blast. Plus, Scarf Lando-T is falling out of favor while double dance and physically defensive are going up, while Char-Y doesn't give a shit as long as it has no SpDef investment.
