Seismetoad deals with electric types and is bulky
Thank you! I'll consider it
Hi! What format is this? I’d like to now so I can give you a better answer :)
I think it’s gen 7 monotype?

You definitely need some sort of counter to electric types. A water ground type is a good counter. Since everyone is assuming that it is gen 7 monotype, first we need to see which ones are available (without trading).

Quagsire: N/A

Swampert: Island scan

Whiscash: Seaward Cave, Paniola Town, Poni Gauntlet, Poni Meadow, Vast Poni Canyon

Gastrodon: Poni Wilds, Ancient Poni Path, Poni Breaker Coast, Exeggutor Island

Seismitoad: N/A

Out of the three, swampert has the highest bst. Looking at your team, I think swampert is the best choice. (You can find marshtomp I think on saturdays. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LtFMVVgTGBU

Overall, because swampert is a physical attacker, and has a respectable base stat total, try him out.

Hope this helped!

For the set, try this:

Swampert @ swampertite
Ability: Torrent
Evs: 252 attack/252 HP/4 Special defense
Rain Dance
Ice Punch

Hope I helped!

why is avalanche better than ice punch
why is 252 special defense better than 252 Speed
To add onto that, if you were going to invest in bulk, why 252 SpDef over 252 HP?
sure should change

Electric types look like a huge threat, I think Lightning Rod Seaking is a massive counter to them, in addition to being a great attacking mon. For Seaking, this set works well:
Seaking @ Life Orb
Ability: Lightning Rod
EVs: 64 HP/252 ATK/192 SPE
Adamant Nature
Knock Off
Drill Run
(Horn Drill is also an option if you're willing to risk it)

Hope this is useful :)

seaking is outclassed by every water ground type, and horn drill is banned in all monotype smogon formats
