This team is more of an offencive team but has some deffenciveness to it.. I know my grammer and sheiBe is off but who cares?

Politoed @ Choice Specs
Trait: Drizzle
EVs: 252 HP / 4 SAtk / 252 Spd
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
- Surf
- Focus Blast
- Ice Beam
- Hidden Power [Grass]

Why: it sets rain up obviously lol. But I went with a bulky choicespecs set because it can rake a hit and deliver one. It has hpgrass so it can hit water types and fucusblast just for general coverage.

Gyarados @ Leftovers
Trait: Intimidate
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spd
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Dragon Dance
- Substitute
- Waterfall
- Earthquake

Why: its an awesome physical sweeper in rain specialy with dragondance. Its waterfall is stab and powered by rain. It can hide behind a sub and dragon dance up. Earthquake is to kill off electric types.

Lanturn @ Leftovers
Trait: Volt Absorb
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 SDef
Calm Nature (+SDef, -Atk)
- Thunder
- Hydro Pump
- Ice Beam
- Heal Bell

Why: its a good tank. It haz massive hp and pretty decent spdef so it can take hits on the special side as well as dish them out. Its hydropump is stab and powered by rain and thunder is 100% accurate in rain as well as stab. Also its volt absorb is freakin awesome to go with gyaradose.

Scizor @ Choice Band
Trait: Technician
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)

Trait: Prankster
EVs: 4 Def / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)

Why: takes advantage of rain with a stab 100% accurate hurricain and hp water. Its other moves are just filler moves to be honest but they work pretty well. Also this form isnt and uber soo.....yeah

Trait: Regenerator
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SDef

no offense but you need better grammar
The Team is great. Its just the moves that let it down. All the Pokemon are great IMO.
If you are excusing the fact that Tornadus-T is Uber, and the fact that 3 pokemon are weak to electric, with only 2 pokemon being able prominently absorb Electric type attacks.
I'll at least put in a Dragonite for Tornadus-T since it über
Tornadus-I can't have Regenerator
Lol...
Take out Garados double weak to electric type pokemon and during a rainstorm thunder gets 100% accuracy.  Also Scizor, I know it is an awesome pokemon but no, no added advantages during a rainstorm.  Personally, I would be using Floatzel, Dragonite, Whiscash, and Toxicroak. Floatzel for swift swim and overwhelming speed.  Dragonnite because it adds verity also it can learn thunder and hurricane which both get 100% accuracy.  Toxicroak is to throw people off also with the dry skin ability will make it regain health.  Whishcash, you throw in there to piss people off.  With the dream world ability hydration you can use rest and it will wake up almost instantly during a rainstorm.  I hope my advice is useful.
Special Dragonite isn't that good, and Swift Swim and Drizzle on the same team is banned in OU,
Scizor does actually gain some advantage in rain; fire moves are now halved in power, so it at least has a chance of surviving a non STAB fire attack in rain.
