ok, so i was thinking, although it would probably never happen, if one team had say an Abomasnow as a lead pokemon and the other had a Tyranitar, does the weather change ability go to the faster pokemon first, or how does that work? would it hail or sandstorm?

I literally have no idea. I notice that in competitive battling, sometimes my Poke comes out 1st, sometimes the opponent's comes out 1st. It depends, if TTar came out 1st, then its ability would activate 1st, then Abomasnow's. But as far as I know, whichever trainer sends out their Pokemon 1st is random.

it goes to whoever is sent out last. me and my bro know this. when my groudon used to battle his kyogre the first would come out, do his dance, and then the second would immidiatly change it before any battleing started

right, but i guess the heart of my question is what determines who gets sent out first if they are both the lead? shadow says its random and i think that is correct but ive never proven it

For all we know, it is random.

But it could be a hidden value that's based on something like the trainer's name and ID number. But we may never know.

Actually, from my experience, its been who's faster. IE, my kyogre (that my friend randomly put 252 spd EVs on) made it rain, while the dude in the Master Colosseum's Tyranitar used Sand Stream afterwards, and my Kyogre outran it.

It also happened when this Kyogre faced a Groudon, so, my hypotheses is that it is based on speed, at least in PBR.

I agree with Mudkipman, in my experience who ever is faster summons there weather ability, then the slower one activates theirs, thus over writing the previous weather effect.

in the GBA game it was the person who had end '1' of the nozzle who's poke got sent out first, meaning the second person got there effect staying.

The question isn't about which you prefer; It's about which one would result when a Tyranitar/Hippowdon and an Abomasnow were both sent out at the beginning of a battle.

And I think which one is sent out first is dependent on who set up the invitation for the battle and who accepted the invitation, like Last_Redeemer said.

yes, i think it is whoever is the leader, and whoever joins the leaders "server." but, i don't know if the leader or the follower goes first
