i just got a politoed in trade and I know that it will even outspeed ninjask, but will it work? kingdra has perfect evs and decent ivs
Yes, Kingdra hits very hard in the rain and is extremely fast, while Drizzle Politoed is one of the most influental Pokemon in the whole game, as its ability makes it and a score of other Pokemon extremely powerful.
It is a GREAT combo. For multiple reasons:
Politoed and kingdra have their water attacks boosted under rain
And as you said, kingdra is ridiculously fast under rain.
This combo is so great in fact that drizzle+swift swim is banned in many competitive environments, except ubers
Plus kingdra and politoed share no weaknesses
So YES. If it isn't banned use it.
Yes it is a very good combo. Kingdra has very good attack stats with Swift Swim outspeeds every opponent.
Politoad in that situation works well for support or as an additional attacker.
Ok you had a duplicate question so I'm moving my answer to this one. Can you please hide the other one? Thanks.
