Kyogre @ Choice Scarf
Trait: Drizzle
EVs: 252 SAtk / 252 Spd / 4 HP
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
- Ice Beam
- Surf
- Water Spout
- Thunder
Set up the rain and hit hard with Water Spout STAB with rain-boosted power and Scarf- boosted speed. This will KO many pokemon who aren't weak to water. Ice Beam for Dragons and Grass types. Surf will come handy when its HP becomes lower. Thunder never misses in rain used to hit other water-types.

Accelgor (M) @ Life Orb
Trait: Hydration
EVs: 252 SAtk / 252 Spd / 4 HP
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
- Bug Buzz
- Focus Blast
- Giga Drain
- Hidden Power [Rock]
The fastest Pokemon on my team. High Speed and Special attack makes it a fantastic sweeper. Focus Blast for steel types. Giga Drain for rock types, and HP Rock for fire and flying weakness and other Bug types. I really like this because it takes down Darkrai in one hit. If the opponent sends in Darkrai, I switch Accelgor in. Most Darkrai trainers start with Dark Void and Accelgor's Hydration clears it, and the next turn Bug Buzz takes it down before it can hit me :D

Swampert (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Torrent
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 Atk
Impish Nature (+Def, -SAtk)
- Earthquake
- Waterfall
- Ice Punch
- Rain Dance
Its a great wall, immune to electric which is what I wanted, also can STAB with Waterfall and Earthquake. Ice Punch for grass weakness. Rain Dance is a backup just in case Kyogre faints which can really mess up my strengths.

Ludicolo (F) @ Leftovers
Trait: Rain Dish
EVs: 252 HP / 252 SDef / 4 SAtk
Calm Nature (+SDef, -Atk)
- Substitute
- Scald
- Giga Drain
- Ice Beam
Another pokemon meant to take advantage of the rain. Rain Dish and Leftovers heal it slowly. Scald for STAB and can cause burn. Giga Drain to hit and also to heal. Ice Beam for flying and other grass types.

Lanturn (F) @ Air Balloon
Trait: Volt Absorb
EVs: 64 HP / 252 SAtk / 192 SDef
Calm Nature (+SDef, -Atk)
- Thunder
- Ice Beam
- Scald
- Heal Bell
Thunder to hit other water types hard with 100% accuracy in the rain. Ice Beam to deal with grass types. Scald for STAB and can cause burn. Heal Bell to cure and status problems with my team. Air Ballon gives immunity to Ground moves (though temporarily), and volt absorb ability restores HP when switched in on electric moves :D

Kingdra (F) @ Life Orb
Trait: Swift Swim
EVs: 76 Atk / 252 SAtk / 180 Spd
Rash Nature (+SAtk, -SDef)
- Hydro Pump
- Waterfall
- Dragon Pulse
- Hidden Power [Fighting]
Swift Swim ability will allow it to outspeed almost all dragons and get a OHKO STAB with Dragon Pulse. Waterfall and Hydro Pump in the rain will deal massive damage and break through physical or special walls, and HP Fighting is for steel types like Ferrothorn.

This is the team I currently use as Rain team. Please rate and any suggestions would be appreciated. Please be nice, this is my first post. Thanks :)

This team is categorized as Uber since you have kyogre. Use politoed.
Its Uber anyway, kingdra has swift swim
This team has so far worked well in many matches, I can't think of any changes.
thank u finnaly a ludicolo for a change
Since this is an UBERS team, you might want to add Uber Pokemon that can benefit, such as Palkia.
Wow you obviously puts some great thought into this team. I am as clueless as u Santa on how to improve this team. :)
