I might be using the calculator incorrectly, but the result of Hydro Pump against lead Metagross was 51.9% - 61.3% and Jirachi is 48.2% - 56.8%, which are both 2HKO's. Versus Azelf is 90.7% - 107.2% plus Aqua Jet due to the fact the Azelfs almost always carry Focus Sash.
Relax, Brick Break is merely an option in case of a rise in useage of dual screens.
I'm not saying Golduck>Vaporeon, but I'm not saying Vaporeon>Golduck either. Each of the lead water pokemon have their advatages.
Vaporeon-Late Game Support(Wish, Heal Bell, typing etc)
Golduck-Speed and variety(Damp, Cloud Nine, Hypnosis, Encore, typing etc)
EDIT: If you wanted to you could run Blizzard or Icy Wind(max speed on Vaporeon) to beat Roserade(assuming Vaporeon or Golduck make it to the 2nd turn).
