So, I have 3 Rain Dancers, but Ludicolo is my main Dancer. The others are just to recover the Rain. Can any one tell me where to get the Gen 6 pics of the megas and new pokemon? (I have seen people with Gen 6 pics of Khangaskhan, Mega Khangaskhan, and Greninja, among others)

If you're making Ludicolo bulky, you should give it a stall set w/ Leech Seed.
For Vivillon: http://www.smogon.com/media/sprites/xy/front/vivillon.png
As for the team itself, Compoundeyes > Shield Dust for Vivillon. I love the Wartortle ;) but would run Haze > Foresight, except if this is for a use against Misdreavus. Like fondant said, make your Ludicolo buky with Leech Seed.
I suggest a support to be added, and one of my favorite supports in NU, Sawsbuck! (winter sawsbuck is purely preference it has nothing to do with the stradtgy)
Sawsbuck @ Leftovers

Leech seed
Horn Leech
Solar Beam

IV (and/or) EV: HP, Attack(optional), Defense, Sp. Defense, and Speed

This makes him both bulky, and supportive, and if you are up against a pure offense poison type, or a few para-hax electrics, Aromatherapy is a good, quick and easy pickup.
I'm not sure if you understand the concept of cores. You don't exactly have a lot of coverage. And you have a rather big grass weakness.

looks good
many of your other mons is able to learn ice beam. try replacing HP ice with cotton guard since you have put EVs into sp.def

maybe haze over foresight?
as fondant already stated, leech seed is a better choice for ludi. what about this:

ludicolo @damp rock
trait: rain dish
bold nature
252 hp/ 202 def/ 54 sp.def

  • rain dance
  • leech seed
  • substitute
  • toxic/ surf

most of ludicolos weakness is physical, so its better to put EVs and nature into defense. leech seed steals hp from opposing pokemon and works well together with rain dish, substitute works well with both rain dish and leech seed, giving it back its lost hp. toxic is for… yeah you know toxic and surf is STAB

yes! this is good good GOOD!! love this set. you have already enough rain dancers (after my calculations) so you can replace it with something else if you want. maybe infestation or something? however, vivillon is good whatever you do with it.
for you last pokemon, the clamperl family is great for NU rain. one of these might not be a bad idea:

huntail @life orb/white herb

enter image description here

adamant/ naive nature
trait: swift swim
252 atk/ 252 sp.atk/4 hp

shell smash
ice beam
aqua tail
return/ frustration (XD) / giga impact /crunch

so this is a shell smash mixed sweeper set. swift swim makes up for low speed. shell smash takes speed, attack and sp.atk up with two stages but lowers def and sp.def (no worries with white herb), ice beam is coverage, aqua tail is STAB (could suggest waterfall too, but aqua tail is more huntail), return is a good normal type move, giga impact is in an emergency and crunch is since no other of your pokes knows any dark type moves (know its pointless)

another good pokemon could be:

[email protected] white herb
enter image description here
modest nature
trait: swift swim


  • shell smash
  • physic
  • ice beam
  • surf

also shell smash set. surf is STAB, ice beam is coverage, psychic is psyshic not much more to say.

another option could also be the classic "SmashPass"

so sorry if this was just terrible D: , but i hope you will follow at least one of my tips

oh. didn't saw arcamons comment. i agree with him about the compound eyes> shield dust too.
