Serious Nature
- Poltergeist (STAB, high power)
- Bonemerang (Useful Coverage)

Rillaboom-Gmax @ Grassy Seed
Ability: Grassy Surge
Level: 50
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Grassy Glide (STAB, Priority)
- Acrobatics (Grassy Seed being consumed buffs it, very good at countering an opposing Rillaboom)
- Knock Off
- Fake Out

Togekiss @ Mental Herb
Ability: Super Luck
Level: 50
EVs: 252 HP / 252 SpA / 4 SpD
Calm Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Air Slash (Flinch, STAB)
- Follow Me (VERY useful)
- Dazzling Gleam (STAB)
- Protect

Usually Max Kindgra first-turn with a helping hand.
Max Geyser to set up rain, Max Aistream for extra speed.
Dragapult with Choice Scarf can outspeed Kindgra and is very dangerous if not deal with
Torkoal Venasaur is very good at countering this, because the sun goes last and the only way to reset rain easily is to Geyser the Torkoal, leaving Venasur to Sleep Powder easily.

Follow Me + Gmax Rapid Strike is very powerful and hard to counter.
Togekiss will be able to continue using Follow Me due to Mental Herb
Rock Slide (Excadrill, T-Tar, etc)
Gmax moves that ignore Follow Me (Namely, Gmax Rillaboom)
Dazzling Gleam (Togekiss and Hatterene)

I'm open to any suggestions!

assume you made this team on showdown, so adamant would be better than serious
I think scope lens outclasses mental herb if you are using super luck
Use Muddy Water instead of Hydro Pump for Kingdra. It's more accurate and hits both Pokemon. Also Draco Meteor for Kingdra.

Politoad - I recommend making the EV spread more bulky. Try 252 HP, 252 Defence, 4 Special Attack. Give it a Sitrus Berry.

Urshifu - Seems good. As you're gonna be dynamaxing a lot, run Lum Berry as your item. It cures you from burn and paralyze, which is very useful.

Kingdra - With Swift Swim, you don't need max speed. Try 100 HP, 156 Speed, 252 Special Attack. Give it Life Orb, it's another good dynamax Pokemon.

Marowak - I'm not sure about it on a rain team. I'd recommend instead a Raichu for a Lightning Rod user.

Raichu @ Focus Sash

EVs: 4 HP/252 SpAtt/252 Speed.
Timid Nature.
Ability: Lightning Rod.

Fake Out
Volt Switch
Grass Knot

Rillaboom - Try U-Turn over Acrobatics. This forms some sympathy between Rillaboom and Raichu, as they can switch out with U-Turn and Volt Switch whilst using Fake Out in the other turn. Give it Assault Vest, to boost its fairly low special defence stat.

Togekiss - Run Timid 4 HP/252 Special Attack/252 Speed. Give it Scope Lens.

Hope I helped!

Thanks so much dude! Tried a few games with these amendments on Showdown and it worked really well! I new I needed a replacement for Marowak, how did I not realise Raichu existed lol. Thanks again for the tips :D
Thanks, hope I helped!!!!
