Politoed (M) @ Choice Specs
Trait: Drizzle
EVs: 252 HP / 252 SAtk / 4 Spe
Modest Nature (+SAtk, Atk)
- Hydro Pump
- Focus Blast
- Ice Beam
- Hidden Power [Grass]
Weather Setter/ Special Sweeper. Hydro Pump is STAB + Rain. Focus Blast is always great to have. Ice Beam beats up those nasty Dragon Dancers before they can set up. HP Grass basically is extra coverage to hit things like Swampert and Gastrodon who's bulk and typing (and Ability in Gastro's case) prevent STAB Hydro Pump from damaging them.

Ferrothorn (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Iron Barbs
Shiny: Yes
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 Atk
Impish Nature [+Def, -SAtk]
- Leech Seed
- Stealth Rock
- Thunder Wave
- Power Whip
Hazard Setter/Physical Wall/Uber Troll Supreme. in Rain this thing is ridiculous to try to take down. T Wave shuts down multiple members of the opposing team. With Leech Seed + Leftovers, Ferrothorn gets pretty good Recovey for stalling and also racks up some residual damage.

Gliscor (F) @ Toxic Orb
Trait: Poison Heal
Shiny: Yes
EVs: 252 HP / 180 Def / 72 SDef
Careful Nature (+SDef, -SAtk)
- Acrobatics
- Protect
- Fling
- Substitute
this thing is a nightmare. it works like this: Protect.. Toxic self. Substitute... stall. recover 12% HP. Protect l.. recover 12% HP. use fling. Badly Poisons opponent. Acrobatics STAB power doubles. Protect. Sub. Protect. Acrobatics.....wash, rinse, repeat.

Thundurus-Therian (M) @ Focus Sash
Trait: Volt Absorb
EVs: 252 Spe / 252 SAtk / 4 HP
Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
- Thunder
- Hidden Power [Ice]
- Focus Blast
- Agility
Weather Abuser/Special Sweeper. Agility + Sash ensures I get an Agility Boost which then allows me to Spam Thunder and HP Ice.

Tentacruel (F) @ Black Sludge
Trait: Rain Dish
EVs: 240 Def / 252 HP / 16 Spd
Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk)
- Rapid Spin
- Knock Off
- Scald
- Toxic
Spinner/Special Wall. Rain dish + Black sludge is 12% HP recovery per turn. Knock Off shuts eviolite and leftovers abusers down. Scald is STAB and can Burn, increasing Physical Bulk.

Scizor (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Technician
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 HP / 4 SDef
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Bullet Punch
- Bug Bite
- Swords Dance
- Superpower
Bulky Physical Sweeper. my clean up crew. Investment in HP and Lefties let it set up a swords dance or two and rape with STAB Tech Boosted +2/4 +1 @Priority Bullet Punch. Bug Bite hits Psychic and Dark types hard with a Tech Boosted STAB. it can also ruin Custap Abusers and Lum Berries. Superpower hits Steel types and Blissey/Chansey like a truck, at the cost of setting swords dance back a bit.

well this is it. 3-0 so far. what do you think?
