You need more bulk. Either make Starmie more defensive or make Toxicroak's set a typical Rain Stall one, with Swords Dance, Subsitute, and Black Sludge item.
Volcarona... an unusual choice in Rain.
You need a pokemon who can work well in any weather
It's okay i guess. Your toxicroak needs a little better of a move set.
The Toxicroak is fine e_e
hmmmm... i am considering a rain team for my ou team... might use your volcarona set
dont use dragonite
