My New and Improved OU Rain Team :D

Team Building Process:

Bet you can't guess what I added first? Politoed, a rain team isn't a rain team without her. Literally.


Next I added a core in the form of Gyarados, Jolteon, and Jirachi, as they have great synergy and all of them benefit from the rain.


Latios was my next addition as I wanted a second Pokemon who could take ground type moves for Jirachi and Jolteon. Latios also balances out my attackers, being a special powerhouse.


I didn't really have a defensive monster on the team or anything to set up hazards, so I chose Ferrothorn which is really a task to take down in the rain.


So there ya have it. Pretty epic huh? :P Here's the team in more detail.

... ... ... ...   lol no.
lol yes.
What do you suggest? I'm happy to take suggestions.
Well, here's my take on the ability. Gyarados is a naturally bulky pokemon, and cutting the opponents attack is always a great option. However, if you switch into Gyarados, and are battling an experienced player, chances are you currently have the upper hand. The experienced player will see this as well, and just switch out, --no benefit of stat change. With Moxie, the opponent can't say "no"
I'll consider both, and I'll test them out. Thanks for the suggestion.
