Politoed @ Choice specs
Trait: Drizzle
EVs: 252 HP / 252 SpAtk / 4Def
Quiet
- Surf
- Ice beam
- Hidden power (fighting)
- Psychic

Rain user. Also a bulky special attacker. Surf is for STAB, higher power than scald, and more reliable than hydro pump. ice beam is for great coverage that can kill dragonite, salamence, Gliscor, Landorus etc. HP fighting is for ferrothorn and psychic is for coverage/filler

Genesect @ Choice scarf
Trait: Download
EVs: 252 SpAtk / 252 Spd / 4Atk
Mild
- U-Turn
- Thunder
- Ice beam
- Giga drain

Powerful special attacker. Mild nature raise opponent's genesect's attack instead of special attack. U-turn to scout Thunder works great in rain, ice beam is for same reason as Poli. Giga drain is to kill Rotom-W. Works great in rain

Scizor @ Choice band
Trait: Technician
EVs: 248 HP / 252 Atk / 8 SpDef
Adamant
- U-Turn
- Bullet punch
- Pursuit
- Superpower

Physical powerhouse of this team. Obvious moveset. Works great in rain.

Forretres @ Leftovers
Trait: Sturdy
EVs: 252 HP / 252 SpDef / 4 Def
Careful
- Stealth rock
- Spikes
- Toxic spikes
- Rapid Spin

Set up hazards on opponent's side, and spin away hazards on my side. Works great in rain

Dugtrio @ focus sash
Trait: Arena trap
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
Adamant
- Earthquake
- Reversal
- Sucker punch
- Stone edge

You have probably thought "There are way too many damn fire type weanesses! Once the rain is gone, this team is ruined!" so this guy is up. This guy is here to take down weather abusers, especially ninetales, keeping the rain up. Also kills opponent's fire type pokemon

Sableye @ Leftovers
Trait: Prankster
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SpDef
Bold
- Will-O-Wisp
- Taunt
- Recover
- Night shade

Very annoying. Can ruin opponent's ferrothorn, Scizor, Gyarados and Salamence. Also a spin blocker. Able to attack with night shade in case of getting taunted

I thought politoed wasnt a special bulky attacker
Politoed is more commonly used as staller, but forretress and Sableye does that job.
I made it into Special tank because this team lacks offense.
It actually works quite well
Genesect is in Ubers.
Genesect is still OU in PO
Regardless of rain you have a massive fire weakness, and if Politoed dies, you're done for. Also, should you happen upon a Keldeo or a Moxie(Gyar)Dos, well let's just say the odds would not be in your favor.
I'll replace Genesect for an water type that actually can help
under rain- like a Calm set Keldeo, D-D Gyarados or something.
Your team will get crush (mostly fire types pokes) if Politoed is dead.
How about Rotom-W?
It can work great with Scizor
