*This pokemon sp. attack receives a boost during a hailstorm.
Moves: Blizzard is a powerful ice stab that has basically no drawback thanks to the increased accuracy under hail. Moonblast is Alolan Ninetales’ strongest fairy stab move and pairs up well with Blizzard, having decent neutral coverage. Toxic helps wear down the opponent’s bulk walls and basically any possible switch-in for Alolan Ninetales. Aurora Veil is a fantastic move that halves all damage done your team for five turns as long as hail is up. Encore can also be used to provide a means for your Pokemon to set up on the opponents, or at least get a free switch; however, I find Aurora Veil to just be better.
Spread: Max speed with a Timid nature is used to increase Alolan Ninetales’ speed stat as much as possible without a choice item, and thus, allowing it to outspeed the crowded 95-105 speed tier. Max special attack is used to increase Alolan Ninetale’s offensive presence. Snow Warning is a fantastic ability because it will automatically summon hail whenever Alolan Ninetales switches in. Icy Rock then extends this hail from five turns to eight turns. 0 attack IVs reduces the power of Foul Play.
Team Support/Usage: Alolan Ninetales is a solid weather setter with an above average support movepool and decent stab options. The big drawback is Steel-types completely wall out Alolan Ninetales by resisting both of its stabs, having a 4x super effective stab on Alolan Ninetales, and being immune to Toxic. This makes Dugtrio a fantastic partner for Alolan Ninetales as it can trap the steel types, which also supports Ninetales’ other potential teammates. Alolan Sandslash and Beartic make fantastic partners for Alolan Ninetales because they can take advantage of the hail that Alolan Ninetales sets up with their Slush Rush ability. Lastly, an electric type like Tapu Koko is recommended for taking out Celesteela as it can prove annoying to the rest of the recommended teammates and Alolan Ninetales.
