This is a rain team concept I had for ou. Pretty simple. Give feedback and suggestions where you see fit.

Politoed leftovers
Nature: bold
Evs 252 hp 156 def 100 sp def
Ability: drizzle
Scald
Hp grass
Encore
Toxic

A basic support set. Hp grass is there mainly for gastrodon and other bulky waters, who give tge team trouble. Toxic deals with walls (may replace with hypnosis) and encore is just to annoy. Ice beam can replace hp grass

Magnezone: choice scarf
Evs: 4 hp 252 sp atk 252 spd
Nature: timid
Ability: magnet pull
Volt switch
Thunder
Flash cannon
Hp fighting

Pretty simple: fast rain attacker and revenger. Gets rid of ferrothorn and other troublesome steels. Can provide switch ins for latias and vice versa, hp fighting is for primarily hitting ferrothorn while still being usable on other threats in rain.

Latias: leftovers
Evs: 252 hp 4 sp atk 252 spd
Nature: timid
Ability: levitate
Calm mind
Dragon pulse
Recover
Psyshock

The special sweeper, latias runs tge typical calm mind set, while functioning in and out of rain and covering the grass and electric weaknesses that threaten the team and taking the special hits. She also synergies with magnezone well and appreciates the steel removal he provides and is a good answer to sun teams. Life orb is also an item option

Forretress: leftovers
Evs: 252 hp 252 def 4 sp def
Nature: impish
Ability: sturdy
Moves:
Spikes
Rapid spin
Gyro ball
Volt switch

Physical wall and hazards. Also spins for gyarados. She'd shell is also an option of course

Gyarados life orb
Moxie
Evs: 4hp 252 atk 252 spd
Nature: jolly
Dragon dance
Waterfall
Earthquake
Ice fang

Physical sweeper who loves the rain and brings tge pain. DD boosts, waterfalls stab, earthquakes for electrics and ice fang for grasses and dragons. Breloom and him have decent synergy as well, as do him and Magnezone.

Breloom: choice band
Nature: adamant
Evs: 252 atk 252 hp 4 sp def
Ability: technician
Mach punch
Bullet seed
Stone edge
Low sweep

Priority. Plain and simple. Also kills water/grounds like gastrodon who are a nuisance and other annoying threats like magnezone and rotom w

Well that's it. All suggestions welcome

Have you tried SD Breloom set? I quite like it and it leads to some massive annoyance.

Breloom @ Toxic Orb
Trait: Poison Heal
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spd / 4 HP
Mach Punch
Bullet Seed
Stone Edge
Swords Dance

Someone may have a different EV spread. But Breloom works really well this way.
Otherwise it's a very nice team.
Substitute>Stone Edge, run Technician over Poison Heal. With two SD its GG.
Well the main reason I have breloom is for the boosted priority and to handle gastrodon and ferrothorn without setup, so techniloom is the way to go, but that's still a cool set Mr K
Techniloom isn't bad, but im gonna suggest Banded Terrakion here, to gain the ability and help counter Weather inducers.

Terrakion @ Choice Band
Trait: Justified
Evs: 252 Atk / 252 Spd / 4 SDef
Jolly Nature
- Close Combat
- Stone Edge
- Earthquake / Sacred Sword
- X- Scissor

I think your team may benefit from this guy.
Alright I'll keep terrakion in mind, but if I can I want to avoid adding another grass weakness and gastrodon vulnerability. And breloom does a pretty god job with opposing weather inducers. Bullet seed gets hippowdon and politoed, Mach punch/low sweep gets abomasnow/tyranitar, and stone edge gets ninetales. Thanks though
