About Ninetales
It is very smart being able to understand human speech. It is also very vengeful. Grabbing one of its many tails have been known to result in a curses. It is also a Pokemon surrounded by legend. According to an enduring legend, 9 noble saints were united and reincarnated as this Pokemon, according to a similar legend Ninetales came into being when nine wizards possessing sacred powers merged into one. Another legend claims that each of its nine tails has its own unique type of special mystic power. Ninetales can cast a sinister light from its bright red eyes to gain total control over its foe's mind. It is said it can live for a thousand years.

Ninetale's Stats
HP - 73

Defense - 75
Sp.atk - 81
Sp.def - 100
Speed - 100

Ninetales in Competitive Battling
With summer starting in the month of June I decided for this Pokemon of the month I would choose someone who could bring out the sun and when it comes to bringing out the sun in the OU tier no one does it better than Ninetales. Thanks to it's hidden ability drought that it got this generation ninetales can be used to start endless sun just by switching in. Outside of summoning sun Ninetales doesn't have much use... It's stats are on the low side for the most part. It doesn't have much diversity in it's move-pool with most moves being either a fire, pyshic, or normal type move. Fire also isn't the greatest defensive typing. The main thing you want to do is keep Ninetales alive. That way if someone decides to change the weather you can change it back later.

Example Set
Ninetales - Leftovers
Ability: Drought
Nature: Modest(+ Sp.atk, - Atk)/Timid(+ Spe, - Atk)
EVs: 252 Speed, 252 Sp.atk, 4 Def
Will-o-Wisp
Fire Blast
Solarbeam
Nasty Plot

The main idea of this set is to set up drought switch out and then once all of the opposite weather has been cleared let the sun shine! Leftovers helps Ninetales recover any health should it need to take a hit. Evs allow you to hit as hard and fast as you can. Nature depends if you want to make sure you hit (timid) or if you want to make sure you do alot of damage when you do hit (modest). Will-o-Wisp burns physical attackers which means their attack will be cut by 50%. This allows for Ninetales to take physical hits which it would normally have a hard time doing with it's low defense stat. Fire Blast is stab and boosted by sun. Flamethrower can also be used here if you fear the low accuracy of Fire Blast. Solarbeam gives you a powerful coverge move that doesn't need to be charged in the sun. Nasty Plot helps boost your sp.atk so you can hit even harder.

Other options
You can try a more defensive ev spread and nature to make Ninetales last as long as possible. Ninetales also has many other good non attacking moves that you can try such as hypnosis (though be aware of the low accuracy), subsititue, and toxic.
