If you want to use that coolest electric type around, you need make sure it isn't outclassed by Thundurus. The first sets cool but encore shouldn't be slashed at all, its the only thing that makes Raichu viable. Secondly, slash air balloon as an item choice because immunity to ground is cool and you can screw over EQ users by encoring EQ.
The second set is kinda bleh since Thundurus can do it better. Try:
name: Sub Punch
move 1: Volt Tackle
move 2: Substitute
move 3: Focus Punch
move 4: Encore / Grass Knot
nature: Jolly / Adamant
evs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 spe
The main set is waaaaay to slashy. There's no need to slash Thunder when you mention using Thunder in the set comments if Rain is present. Agility doesn't deserve a slash because Raichu isn't strong enough to abuse it and likewise Substitute doesn't deserve a slash either.
