    I've always had a soft spot for Hail, but I've had better success with it in VGC. Double Blizzard spam is always funny

    I really wish it was better, it's been left in the dust too long. Granted, the last two gens have been working on that but they've not fixed the biggest problem: Ice types.

    Why don't they give a stat boost for Ice types during hailstorm? Just like the Rock types receiving 1.5X Sp. Def. boost during sandstorm.
