Haven't caught any of them yet, but lets just say this is what they would be, I can give you their nature but not EVs I will be training and breeding each for those specific natures and EV boosts.

If this is a Rain Dance team (which really does look like one) and if your using it in double battles here's a catch.

Kyogre
- Water Spout (STAB)
- Ice Beam (Coverage)
- Surf (STAB)
- Earthquake (Coverage, even though he is more of a Special Attacker it'll work)

Zapdos
- Thunder (STAB)
- Heat Wave (Coverage)
- Roost (Always helps)
- Hidden Power (Grass) (Coverage against Rock types)

Lanturn
- Rain Dance
- Charge Beam (STAB and instead of Thunder, Charge Beam raises your special attack every turn which is good for Lanturn)
- Surf (STAB and gets a boost from Rain Dance)
- Psybeam/Confuse Ray (It always helps)

Kingdra
- Ice Beam (Coverage)
- Dragon Pulse (STAB)
- Dragon Dance (Boosts Up Stats)
- Hydro Pump (STAB)

Electivire Looks good the way it is

Now If you want to stick with Jolteon maybe this would help:

-Discharge (STAB and if you use him with Lanturn it restores Hp)
- Thunder (STAB)
- Shadow Ball (Mix things up a bit)
- Hidden Power (Ice) <- Coverage

But you can always use pokemon that can use Rain Dance for restoring Hp etc For example:

Toxicroak
Ability: Dry Skin

  • Poison Jab (STAB)
    -Sucker Punch (You go first)
  • Brick Break (STAB)
    -Swords Dance/Rain Dance

Hope I Helped! >.<

I didnt put Items, Natures nor Evs so this could be quick...
Earthquake on Kyogre? No way. Thunder allows you to defeat other Kyogre and more. Lantern is a defensive Pokemon, plus it has a very hard time in Ubers.
JarJar, it's ingame...
IK but if he's using Kyogre, he will be playing with other legendaries won't he? Which is essentially Ubers. :/ Unless this is against in-game trainers, where power leveling fixes everything...
I did actually think of putting up Thunder for Kyogre but then again... Even though he is more of a Special Attacker its always a move that may help...
