    New sun team I made rather quick, wanting to abuse Charizard and Sawsbuck over Volcorona and Venusaur.

    Ninetales (F) @ Leftovers
    Trait: Drought
    EVs: 248 HP / 28 SDef / 232 Spd
    Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
    - Fire Blast
    - Will-O-Wisp
    - Hypnosis
    - Roar
    232 speed lets Ninetails outrun jolly Hax 'r' us. 248 hp is for an odd number of hp for stealth rock switch-ins, the rest is put in special defence to take scalds in the sun. Fire blast is it's best STAB. WoW and Hypnosis cripple opposing pokes, while roar resets sleep counter and racks up SR damage.

    Scizor (F) @ Choice Band
    Trait: Technician
    EVs: 248 HP / 252 Atk / 8 Spd
    Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
    - U-turn
    - Pursuit
    - Bullet Punch
    - Superpower
    Gets KO'd by fire moves outside of the sun, so why not? Stand CB set, U-turn for scouting, Bullet Punch for priority, etc.

    Donphan (F) @ Leftovers
    Trait: Sturdy
    EVs: 248 HP / 252 Atk / 8 Spd
    Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
    - Stealth Rock
    - Earthquake
    - Ice Shard
    - Rapid Spin
    Sets up rocks and rapid spins, the sun helps it take on water attacks. EQ is STAB. Ice shard for prio.

    Sawsbuck (F) @ Life Orb
    Trait: Chlorophyll
    EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SDef / 252 Spd
    Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
    - Swords Dance
    - Horn Leech
    - Frustration
    - Jump Kick
    Underrated poke, Venusaur is so cliche. One swords dance and you can fire off STAB frustrations and Horn Leeches while outspeeding a lot of threats. Jump kick over Nature Power (EQ) lets you hit Balloon Heatran.

    Charizard (M) @ Choice Specs
    Trait: Solar Power
    EVs: 252 SAtk / 4 SDef / 252 Spd
    Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
    - Fire Blast
    - Focus Blast
    - Air Slash
    - SolarBeam
    I let Donphan spin for this guy before sending him out. Timid nature over Modest to outspeed threats. A Choice Specs + Solar Power Fire Blast in the sun will 2HKO eviolite Chansey :]

    Latias (F) @ Leftovers
    Trait: Levitate
    EVs: 248 HP / 232 Def / 28 Spd
    Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk)
    - Dragon Pulse
    - Recover
    - Calm Mind
    - Reflect
    Wanted something to take special hits from Rotom-W, so a Latias with Reflect (can even survive hits from T-tar and Scizor with it, and the massive defense investment) and a Calm Mind set did nicely to round off the team and act as a bulky sweeper.

    That's it, suggestions are welcome <3
