Frog? (Politoed) (F) @ Leftovers
Trait: Drizzle
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SDef
Calm Nature (+SDef, -Atk)
- Toxic
- Protect
- Surf
- Ice Beam

Who better to get the rain goin' than politoed? This one's particularly bulky, and is meant for stalling.



DaHawk (Tornadus-T) (M) @ Flying Gem
Trait: Regenerator
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- U-turn
- Acrobatics
- Superpower
- Crunch

Is it just me, or is this guy really cool? He looks like a hawk or something. Anyway, this guy is the unexpected twist. There tend to be lots of Special attackers on rain teams, and this guy usually is made special. However, he's now physical. This way even when he's not in the rain he'll have a nice 100% accurate flying type move. I made him Adamant and he still outspeeds max Speed Thundrus-T. Also hits harder with U-turn.



Cloud (Thundurus-T) (M) @ Life Orb
Trait: Volt Absorb
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
- Thunder
- Volt Switch
- Hidden Power
- Focus Blast

Hehe, speaking of Thundrus, here's mine. Pretty basic set if'ya ask me. Hidden power water does some damage to ground, and rock, and is powerful in the rain. And is it just me or is the fact that "Therian" and "The rain" are nearly the same word?



Star (Starmie) @ Expert Belt
Trait: Natural Cure
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
- Psyshock
- Surf
- Thunderbolt
- Ice Beam

I just really love starmie. He's fast, gets GREAT coverage, and is just awesome. I learned my lesson giving pokemon Psychic instead of Psyshock when I was battling Freeze Shock and almost had a sweep with my Calm-Minding reuniclus until I ran into blissey :/.



JellaFYSH (Tentacruel) (F) @ Black Sludge
Trait: Rain Dish
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 Spd
Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk)
- Toxic Spikes
- Giga Drain
- Acid Spray
- Rapid Spin

Thought I'd give this guy a shot. I usually don't have spinners, but rocks could really hurt 3 of my MVPs.



IceTray (Kyurem) @ Choice Scarf
Trait: Pressure
EVs: 252 SAtk / 252 Spd/ 4 HP
Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
- Ice Beam
- Dragon Pulse
- Draco Meteor
- Psychic

He's a pretty good sweeper, and can take care of Flying Electric types that want to sweep my team.

Best answer

Politoed
Poli! <3 Only one suggestion, replace Surf with Scald. Other than that, go Poli :D


Tornadus-T
Great job on the physical Tornadus. That's something new ;) It takes the opponent by surprise. However, if you ever consider a speical one, because for whatever reason physical isn't working for you, here is a set:

Tornadus-T @ Choice Specs/Scarf / Trait: Regenerator / EVs: 4 Atk , 252 SpA , 252 Spe / Timid Nature (+Spe, -Atk)
- Hurricane
- Hidden Power [Ice]
- Focus Blast
- U-Turn


Thunderus-T
Good. Consider Specs over Life Orb, not needed, just it's what I have, it works pretty nicely.


Starmie
Um..... Thunderbolt? In rain!?!?! Thunder is the way to go. Otherwise this is good.


Tentacruel
Now I feel like I need to replace something. What happens when Thunderus-T is gone? Someone can spam Thunder and 4/6 of your team goes poof. Or spam grass type moves..... lol. Give the spinner job to Starmie. Replace Psychock or Ice Beam.

Ferrothorn @ Rocky Helmet/Leftovers / Trait: Iron Barbs / EVs: 252 HP , 88 Def , 168 SpD / Impish Nature (+Def, -SpA)
- Spikes
- Stealth Rock
- Power Whip
- Thunder Wave


Kyurem
I am going to also replace this guy, he isn't doing anything to your team.

Latios @ Choice Scarf / Trait: Levitate / EVs: 4 HP , 252 SpA , 252 Spe Modest Nature (+SpA, -Atk)
- Surf
- Thunder
- Psyshock
- Draco Meteor

Expert Belt or Life Orb might also work.


Hope This Helped :D

I don't have scald because I plan on poisoning the opponent. I'm definitely going to go with Ferrothorn, Thunder ON starmie and replace kyurem, except Latias> Latios. :P Thanks a lot!
no problem :P
