I am about to use this team for a tournament on another site.I will be very pleased if someone will/can rate this.Since this is my first rain team.P.S. the desciptions might not be very descriptive.Because I'm a little tired ATM.

Politoed @ Leftovers
Trait: Drizzle
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 Spe
Bold Nature
-Perish Song

Toxicroak @ Black Sludge
Trait: Dry Skin
EVs: 244 HP / 252 Atk / 12 Def
Adamant Nature
-Bulk Up
-Drain Punch
-Sucker Punch

Scizor @ Choice Band
Adamant Nature
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe
-Bullet Punch

Volcarona @ Life Orb
Timid Nature
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe

Ferrothorn @ Leftovers
Trait: Iron Barbs
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SpD

My weather starter.Obvious.I was thinking of a defensive set since Politoed needs to survive as best as it can.

My physical set-up sweeper.And my main counter to the pink blob,Blissey.

Scizor(Previous Set: Bulky Swords Dance)
My main physical sweeper.Credit to DemonKiller for the set.

My special set-up sweeper.I went with this guy so I can take advantage of sun if my rain isn't up.

Tentacruel(Previous Pokemon:Scarfed Latios)
My Spinner.Credit to DemonKiller for helping.

My hazard setter.Not much else to say.

And I'm still open to suggestions.

Best answer

Try this

Politoed- Leftovers
Trait- Drizzle
Evs- 252 Hp/ 252 Def./ 4 Speed/
°Ice Beam
°Perish Song
*Hypnosis is to shaky and will always miss, go for toxic to stall down other Politoed and others annyoing stalling pokes in OU

If you want a rapid spinner try out Tentucruel since he stalling under rain and can set up hazards also

Tentacruel- Black Sludge
Trait- Rain Dish
Evs- 252 Hp/ 236 Def./ 20 Speed/
°Rapid Spin
°Toxic Spikes
*This will help your Volcarona sweep without having any problems with stealth rocks.
I suggest switching out Latias or Scizor but it your choice.

Ok your team is already a bit defensive and stally with Poli and Ferro so Scizor don't need to be all stall-ish what not but try this set

Scizor- Choice Band
Trait- Technician
Evs- 252 Atk./ 4 Def./ 252 Speed/
*Choice Banded U-turn is a good move to scout and does alot of damage specially on Scizor.
B-Punch raps everthing up with the Technician boost and banded, that's going be able to knock out physical walls and like I said it raps everthing up.

To be honest this team looks great and I hope this little advice helps you out on your first rain team
