I'd put focus sash on toxicroak and put speed evs on him too
Well you might want more speed, because other than breloom's Mach punch this team is pretty slow, which is sometimes fine, but not all of your team members have the bulk to afford going last. Starmie and tornadus are two fast rain abusers, but simply making your dragonite mixed is also a solution. A set of hurricane, extreme speed, focus blast and dragon claw with a different nature (such as hasty) is a good option. Giving politoed a choice scarf as opposed to specs will also help with the speed and allow politoed to handle threats like salamence for your dragonite while retaining good special attacking ability

Yeah ...

Politoed has its best movepool I think.
Toxicroak ... Just move the 252 EV HP to speed and 4 sp.Defense to HP.
Dragonite needs instead of Focus blast Surf because of the Rain factor.
Forretress ... I strongly recommend you to remove it and to make place for:

Jellicent @ Life orb
Trait: Water Absorb
EVs: 252 HP / 126 sp.Attack/ 126 sp.Defense / 4 speed (what won't help LOL)
Calm Nature
- Water spout
- Recover
- Shadow ball
- Wring Out

Breloom I recommend this:
Breloom @ Toxic Orb
Trait: Poison heal
EV's: 252 attack / 252 speed / 4 HP
Jolly nature
- Substitute
- Facade
- Seed bomb
- Wake- Up -slap

OR :
Gliscor @ Toxic orb
Trait: Poison heal
EV's: 252 attack / 252 speed / 4 HP
Jolly nature
- Swords Dance
- Agility
- Eart
- E-quake
- Baton Pass (To Toxickroak)

Jirachi has no negative traits, just move 32 Speed to sp.Attack and it is done.

Hope I helped ! :D

Forretress is set up hazards and spin them away. those last suggestions don't help that much tbh..but I guess the rest is OK.
Ok, thanks for your suggestions, but when I saw Forretress in a rain team, I immediatly recommended him to put on the fantastic Water Spout Jellicent with Recover.
Water spout Jellicent is too slow to put any real power on. Plus, it's meant to wall, not sweep. So it's a little irrelevant either way.
You aren't false.
that mean you agree or you think I'm wrong? lol
I agree of course, you are very wise and fair, even if I don't know you well.
