I can finally do the moveset. Has a nice strategy going for it, but stats and typing makes it Neverused.

Ability: Hydratin

EVs: HP, Sp Attack, Speed Nature: Timid

Rest: Rain Dance+Hydration means this guy fully heals, then wakes up right away.

Rain Dance: Activates Hydration and powers up Surf. Also makes Gale better.

Surf: STAB. Powered up by Rain Dance.

Gale: STAB and a good chance to confuse. According to Will, this move has 100% accuracy in any weather.

EXACTLY what I was thinking! Boosted Water STAB and fully accurate Flying STAB. Rest without drawbacks is great too. It may be NU, but it'll really shine in that environment.
what item would you recommend with this set? i was thinking life orb, as it goes well with rest, but not entirely sure :P
I just have one question. what the hell is Gale??? I've never heard of this move...

Swanna @ Life Orb

Trait : Hydration

EV's : 4 Atk / 252 SpA / 252 Speed

Modest Nature (+SpA , -Atk)

  • Rain Dance
  • Surf/Scald
  • Hurricane
  • Ice Beam

Rain Dance activates ability and greatly increaces the accuracy of Hurricane and powers up Surf or Scald.
Surf is powered up by Rain Dance, also gets STAB. Scald is powered up by Rain Dance, STAB, may burn the target (30% chance) .
Hurricane's accuracy is increased to 100%, being able to break through Protect & Detect 25% of the time, STAB.
Ice Beam is a nice coverage move. Covers Grass, Ground, Flying, and Dragon types.

Try this set:
(S)Wanna loose? (Swanna) @ Leftovers/Damp Rock
Ability: Hydration
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Hurricane (high power, good chance let opponent confused)
- Scald (Water type stab,can burn opponent)
- Rain Dance (Why not?)
- Roost (Good recovery , let it lose its rock type weakness)

You can also switch raindance to ice beam if you has a Pokemon has the ability drizzle or it’s already raining, hope it helps!
(P.s. Thanks for the suggestion, gloomdweller!)

Swanna @ Focus Sash

Trait: Hydration

EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd

Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)

Ice Beam
Hurricane / Brave Bird (Depends if you're feeling lucky)

Tailwind for start, Either Sacrifice so you can sweep harder or Surf them. Good with Dragons and Flying with Ice Beam.

Good set. However brave bird dosent work as its physical and Swanna has bad attack and no attack Evs. Go with hurricane.
hmm, i forgot it was Attack.

Substitute-Protects you from electric types for a while.

Roost- Restores health used for Substitute and Brave Bird.

Surf- Good Power and accuracy.Deals with rock types.

Brave Bird-High power and recoil damage won't be a problem because you'll have roost to restore your health.
