Ninetales @ Ninetalesite
Ability: Flash Fire => Drought
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
- Nasty Plot
- Fire Blast
- Shadow Ball
- Solar Beam

Bank in Black and White, where weather wars were a constant struggle in matches, Ninetales was constantly left in the dust due to its lack of bulk or power. However, the introduction of its Mega Evolution made Ninetales more viable than ever, but the question still remains, "Why would I use this over Mega Charizard Y"? A number of reasons can explain this. First of all, Ninetales has the Fire/Ghost typing, which, while giving it weaknesses to Ghost and Dark, gives it a Fighting-type immunity, as well as only a x2 weakness to Stealth Rock. Second, is its stat. While Ninetales has lower Special Attack, Special Defense, and HP than Charizard, Ninetales can take a physical hit much better if it needs to, thanks to its base 95 Special Defense, as well as perform as a better sweeper with its base 130 Speed. Finally, there's Nasty Plot, which allows Mega Ninetales to double its Special Attack in a single turn, and it even reaches above Mega Charizard Y's Special Attack. In fact, with a single Nasty Plot boost, Fire Blast has the ability to 2HKO Mega Charizard Y in the sun. Shadow Ball is the secondary STAB of choice, having great overall coverage with Fire Blast, and works very well as a secondary STAB. Finally, Solar Beam is used to deal with bulky Water-types such as Rotom-W, Manahpy, and Azumarill. Mega Ninetales is extremely difficult to switch into after a Nasty Plot, but there are certain things that can take its hits even after a boost. Tyranitar and Specially Defensive Heatran are both big checks to Ninetales, the former getting rid of Ninetales' Sun in favor of the Sand, while the latter can avoid the 2HKO from Shadow Ball and Roar it out, which makes Assault Vest Conkeldurr a good partner. Entry Hazards are also a problem for Ninetales, which makes Forretress a good partner. In fact, Forretress makes an excellent Fire-type lure, as Forretress can switch out into Ninetales, who can absorb the Fire-type attack, and then Mega Evolve to bring in the Drought. Ninetales has fierce competition for a Mega Slot with Mega Charizard Y, but can succeed given the right support.
