VGC Guide to Sun Teams (2015)

Image
Welcome everyone. After my guide to Sand, Rain, and Trick Room teams, I decided to post my guide on the last viable Team Strategy guide. I won't be doing one on Hail since the only viable Hail team I've seen is a combo of Hail and Trick Room by Cypher, but the team wasn't strong enough, as admitted by Cypher who said the team wasn't strong. Without further ado, lets get on with my analysis on Sun teams. Lets get started!

90 Sp. Attack - Okay. While it's not as strong to be a main powerhouse option in terms of damage, it can be used, but keep in mind Scrafty's attack stat is 90, but he's used as a physical attacker with supportive options.

Sand Teams have always done well in the past, which is why I want to do this. With Regionals fast approaching in the US, I want to get all of these VGC Team Strategy Guides so that you can have a better time picking what team strategy to build around for Regionals. Without further ado, lets get on with my VGC Team Strategy Guide on Sand.
