The question about the rain setter got me curious, what do you think is the best sun, hail, and sandstorm setters among Pokemon who naturally summon them?
Well the obvious answer for Rain is really Primal Kyogre and for Sun it’s Primal Groudon, but I’m assuming we’re trying to keep things more interesting than that here.
For Sun, it’s almost objectively Mega Charizard Y, as it always wins the weather war; that is, if the battle begins with 2 weather setters, ordinarily the slower Pokemon would have their weather last, but since Drought happens upon Mega Evolution, which happens before attacks but after switches, you’re 100% guaranteed that, unless a faster Pokemon uses Rain Dance or something, for at least 1 turn you will have the Sun out. Torkoal, however, gets special mention for Trick Room teams where it’s clearly superior.
In Hail, Alolan Ninetales certainly wins, as it’s the only Snow Warning user who learns Aurora Veil, and is fast and strong enough to deal with Fighting types that Hail teams can struggle with. However, Mega Abomasnow is useful for the same reasons as Mega Charizard Y was, and since regular Abomasnow can also have Snow Warning you get a lot of bulk that way; Mega Abomasnow is also super bulky unlike Alolatales, so it’s a bit more reliable in that regard even with all the weaknesses.
Sand is probably the most difficult to say for sure; Tyranitar seems the obvious choice and its certainly a contender, but I think between the two Hippowdon is better, as it’s super bulky and has a pretty good defensive typing, along with reliable recovery and phasing, while Tyranitar has the double weakness and no healing. Tyranitar, however, benefits from the Special Defense boost Rock types get in Sandstorm. Gigalith is not without its uses of course, but ultimately the others are better.
So, in short, we have, as a whole, Pelipper, Mega Charizard Y, Alolan Ninetales, and Hippowdon as the best weather setters!
Lieutenant Hux gets a mission to pick up an asset for the Supreme Leader from the ruins of a massacred temple, and the entire course of his life is changed in one moment by the appearance of a bloodstained boy who calls himself Ben. A series of meetings and chance encounters throughout the years draw the two of them together again and again, as their relationship shifts from almost friends to enemies to something else entirely.
So after my ye olde Star Wars forum went nova after the whole homophobic mother thing we rebuilt the community on another facebook page and there’s some dude making posts about how Rey’s Force awakening is actually a metaphor for female maturity and sexual awakening and I just
