    Do you enjoy teams more with weather (rain, sandstorm, sun, etc.) or no 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 like hail teams. The other 3 can fluff off

    I honestly prefer non-weather in most tiers, w/ the exception being subseed ludicolo in the rain.

    I'm neutral on this, I tend to use non weather teams but in ubers I use sand

    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

    Weather tends to be more fun to do and more fair against other weather teams.

    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 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.
  13. I prefer no weather but sometimes I'll use it.
  14. tbh, no weather is just better and much more creative.

    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.

    Without weather you can be more creative with your teams and it's more fun.

    Exactly. Back in fourth gen, I loved weather, and kabutops. I used weather in almost every team, actually. When I saw DW Politoed and Vaporeon, I was thrilled.

    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.

    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.
